Princess is a heart-warming drama-comedy about overweight 18 year old Maja, whose size makes it difficult for her to be socially accepted and to make her dreams come true. It is an intimate story about people and their dreams - unfulfilled, suppressed and lost. About waiting for the world around you to fulfill your dreams vs. finding happiness in who you are, no matter what reality you live in. Written by Sandra Harms

Great Swedish drama
17 March 2010 | by dvdupdateSee all my reviews

As a big fan of Swedish cinema, I really enjoyed this movie. I thought the development of the characters were great and the chemistry between them. For most of the part, the acting is good. There were some actors with smaller roles who could have done a bit better, but it's nothing too big a deal.

The movie follows an overweight girl (Maja) who is very passionate about acting, and more than anything wants to become an actress. She meets a documentary filmmaker (Erika) at a wedding and the two decides to shoot a documentary about Maja's life.

I'm not sure if I agree this is partly a comedy. To me, for the most part this was a pure drama.

Anyway, I would definitely recommend you to check this movie out.
