Gorgeous directing and perfect acting. Also it made that 18 page paper I wrote in college about the year 1766 finally pay off. No, seriously. I did that. It took 3 weeks and I wanted to cry by the end. I got an A though, Internet! Go me! Oh...you don't care. Well you get to see the woman from Ex Machina naked, so that's neat.
A well-done period piece made up of very common historical elements: the nobility + adultery, betrayal, power plays; somehow more interesting because it is (mostly) true. The mise-en-scène and cinematography are fantastic, as is Vikander's subtle yet powerful performance. Still, the film consistently feels like it is holding back -- surprising little turmoil showcased in support of their main focus: Enlightenment.
A European film which does not lack the luster of the Hollywood films, but however still intelligent and substantial. This film takes a fascinating chapter in Danish history, little-known to general public, and presents it engagingly. The direction, acting and production are all top notch and worthy of the Oscar nod from the American Academy.
Não sei porque toda mulher adultera de história dessa época tinha que morrer (e quase sempre de tuberculose), mas esse filme é muito lindo. Pela primeira vez na vida a rainha não é só uma cabeça de vento entediada que começa a pegar um bonitão da corte. Isso fez toda a diferença do mundo pra mim.
this was better than brilliant. it was captivating, heartfelt and a cinematic masterpiece to put it lightly. despite it's length, it goes by quickly and you become caught up in the web of enchantment and lies. it was beautiful, the acting was spectacular and i couldn't recommend it enough.
