Storyline

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 Iris Carter

No matter the condition with which you were born
15 October 2017 | by danielsanchezmendozaSee all my reviews

I do not consider myself an expert to criticize a work like a movie, where so many people work, but if I am able to see or understand the message that is wanted to give the work and in this story, the message is simple, "No matter the condition with which you were born, it is not an excuse to dream and achieve something great "I know it is not easy, society is the factor that most debilitates a person, and we all know, but if someone manages to overcome those immense mountains, there will be nobody who can collapse it.
