Storyline

From 1886 to 1907 in the life of Sofie, a Jew in Copenhagen who is nearly 29, with no marital prospects, living with her loving parents. An artist, Hans Hojby, meets Sofie and is entranced, asking to paint her parents and also sketching her. She's responds, but he's not Jewish, and the family reacts by encouraging a marriage to Jonas, a homely draper. Sofie accepts this plan, accompanying her new husband to his town and bearing a son. As he withdraws in mental illness, Sofie begins an affair with his brother, and later returns to live with her parents. A confrontation with Hojby is inevitable as is her son's growing into adulthood and forming his own ideas about religion. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A film Ingmar Bergman would have been proud of.
6 January 2002 | by mifunesamuraiSee all my reviews

A touching story on the life of Sofie, a sweet human dedicated to the innocence of living. One day she stumbles upon passion but her heart settles for the safety net, and so she dwells on what could have been and takes actions later in life. Almost an European soap opera but a tight script with minimal dialogue and simple direction makes this a film Ingmar Bergman would have been proud of.
