Superior Danish film Dec 29 2013
By Dale Booth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Paprika Steen is a fantastic actress and in this film she shows a full range of emotions as an alcoholic woman desperately seeking custody of her children. Highly recommended to anyone appreciating good drama and great acting.

"A Histrionic Rant" Dec 9 2013
By Cary B. Barad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
A bit too much to take, this is a histrionic rant involving the main character's dual role as a narcissistic stage actress and a woman battling alcohol addiction. The primary thrust is that of a marital and parental crisis that gradually escalates to the point where one begins to develop a sense of dread and to perceive potential dangerousness. All-in-all, however, this subtitled production is unremarkable. Both from the standpoint of interest level and as an over-the-top performance perhaps designed to mimic a "real life" depiction of a rancorous Edward Albee play.

Facing your own past with regrets Jan. 7 2013
By Mikey - Published on Amazon.com
This film displays the fantastic talents of actress Paprika Steen who plays Thea, an actress, just having coimpleted a period in rehab to deal with her alcoholism. While drinking Thea divorced and lost custody of her two young children, but now wants them to be part of her life again. After having consent from Christian, her ex-husband, we then see Thea battle the demons of her past.
A very moving realistic account of a woman's battle with the drink is given a trulyt magnificent performance by Steen in this Danish language film with English subtitles.
Fans of the recent Danish The Killing III will recognise the psychologist in Applaus played by Sara-Marie Maltha (Rosa Lebech in The Killing) in 2009 production.

Astonishing Performance! Moving Story! What more do you want? Aug. 11 2011
By Craig Richard Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
I was glad I got to see this film without knowing anything about the story other than that the main character is an actress performing Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. That's it! It was nice to watch a story unfold without already having seen something in a preview that "gives away" a plot point!

The acting is really wonderful, quite moving. Enjoy!
