This is a memorable and moving Danish movie. It tells a story that in
the world which we live, different people have different lives. In this
film, Paprika Steen (playing Thea Barfoed) is a stage performer, used
to be an alcoholic after she had suffered divorce and lost her
children. When people face to the different circumstances of life, some
people are the strong and optimistic, and others are weak and negative.
She had some psychological barriers, she didn't know how to love her family, her sons and husband the right way because she didn't even know how to love herself. So her husband divorced her and got the two boys. After a period of psychological treatment, her life is on to the right track. But she needs to face her faults and mistakes she made before. She loves her sons and she wants to spend time and live with them sometimes, but her ex-husband doesn't trust her and he is afraid the boys will be hurt again. She is very desperate and sad. I think Paprika's performance is superb, and she expresses her emotions very well. Her performance is very natural.
The film tells people how to face the mistakes of the past, and how to change her life for the better. Everybody needs salvation; While Thea looks for forgiveness from others, she must also forgive herself.
