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

A Wonderful Surprise!
2 March 2013 | by raynico-2See all my reviews

What a wonderful surprise, a film and people of which I knew nothing of, expecting a "girlie" movie! Only through my love of Scandanavian cinema did I agree to view this wonderful movie by Bille August. The very beautiful Brigitte Hjort Sorenson entrances as Marie, the wife of Denmark's most famous painter, PS Kroyer, wonderfully played by Soen Saetter- Lassen, in the early 20th. century. A bewildering story of love and insanity - grandeur in scale with exquisite Scandanavian scenery, stylishly photographed by Dirk Bruel. The story takes place in both Denmark and Sweden and depicts a good insight into the lifestyle of the rich and famous. A must see for lovers of great cinema!
