Adapted from the novel "Løvekvinnen" (The Lion Woman) by Erik Fosnes Hansen (2006), the story follows Eva, who is born with hypertrichosis, a congenital condition that causes excessive hair growth over her entire body. Her father grieves not only for the loss of his wife during childbirth, but also for his daughter's abnormal appearance. As Eva's life unfolds, she is in contact with those who shun, embrace, and abuse her, yet she survives with intelligence, wit, and inner beauty.Written by

Title says it all, my review for a 10 is because I have never seen any fim like this that shows you humanity is its worst and prime, does not matter about the CGI behind the baby, the acting is on par, foreign films is the next industry, look forward after watching this and do not look back to Hollywood(which is trash super-hero movies lately). what i do not understand is why the 3 Actresses that play Eva in this film did not get a nomination for their role nor an award.... saddens me deeply
