Anne, a successful lawyer, lives in a beautiful modernist home with her two daughters and physician husband, Peter. Yet when Gustav, Peter's troubled teenage son from another relationship, comes to live with them, she forms an intimate bond with him that jeopardizes her perfect life. And what initially seems like a liberating move for her soon turns into a disturbing story of power, betrayal, and responsibility with devastating consequences.

Powerful & Disturbing Drama
10 February 2020 | by larrys3See all my reviews

Set in Denmark, this is a powerful drama which contains a number of highly graphic and explicit sex scenes.

Trine Dyrholm is terrific in her portrayal of Anne, an icy and headstrong partner in her own law firm, who crosses the taboo line and seduces her troubled stepson Gustav (Gustav Lindh), eventually leading to the most tragic of consequences.

Overall, a most engrossing drama, directed by May el-Toukhy, but one has to be willing to weather its most disturbing elements.
