a trip in atmosphere of end of century in Danmark. a case. delicate details. good acting. inspired images. and the absence of roots. in fact, a kind of drawing, seductive, inspired, proposing a family drama, remembering another versions of Madame Bovary or Anna Karennina, work of a remarkable director, good occasion for Birgitte Hjort Sorensen to reflect her art but losing the essence of the solitude of characters, defining, more, the social impact of decisions, ignoring the step to more than a beautiful film . the music, the costumes, the delicate construction of the lead characters traits are really admirable. descending in the heart of a world, it preserves the flavor of a period. the characters are symbols and that fact transforms Marie Kroyer in a nice experience for viewer.
