An original love triangle & another magnetic performance for MIKKELSEN, after Michael Kohlhaas historical film, this time in his country & his native language. Great debut for Mikkel BOE FØLSGAARD === Un triangle amoureux original & le magnétisme félin de MIKKELSEN, après son autre film historique, Michael Kohlhaas de DES PALLIERES, cette fois dans son pays & sa langue natale. Super début pour Mikkel BOE FØLSGAARD
Brilliant. Been following Mads since his work in the Pusher Trilogy with Nic Refn, a real force in front of the camera, fearless. Vikander was amazing as well. The writing, to the directing, to the stylization, the film was captivating throughout. A marvelous cinematic experience that I cannot speak highly enough about. It deserves all the praise it gets.
The production values are spot on and the performances were all perfect(most notably Alicia Viklander playing the queen) It's a satisfying watch but I was hoping for a bit more than what we've seen in many of other period films. 3.5 stars
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.
