Storyline

At the beginning of the 20th century, Marie is married to Denmark's world famous painter P.S. Krøyer. They are among the country's most admired and famous couples. All the great men of the time - politicians, businessmen, noblemen, scientists, writers and royalty - wish to be depicted by Krøyer, and he can ask any price he wants. To be painted by him is a great honour and comes with great prestige. Marie, who adorns several of Krøyer's paintings, is considered to be "the most beautiful woman in Europe". Together with their daughter Vibeke they experience all the best life has to offer: parties, champagne and luxury. However, this is only the polished surface. Beneath it is living hell. Krøyer suffers from manic depression and syphilis. He can change from being cheerful and upbeat, to a foaming crazy monster without any boundaries, also within his relationship to Marie and Vibeke. Marie has struggled to keep up appearances for a long time, but the situation is wearing her down. She is ... Written by Anonymous

about end of a century
1 January 2015 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

the sensitivity, the atmosphere, the music,the costumes and inspired acting. the mixture of ash and hope after its end. the virtue to be fresco of a society more than portrait of a life.Birgitte Hjort Sorensen does a great job as lead character and the game of nuances exploration, the science for transformation of detail are the good points for success of a touching film who is far to be remarkable but remains a nice experience. a film about woman's condition, about art and about the family , it has a special form of charm who reminds more than presents. adaptation of a novel, it is a form of descending in the heart of a world. with high precision, with beautiful care. and that could not be a real surprise. only mark of a great director return.
