We are proud to screen a film from Denmark; whose cinema is internationally renowned.
This film is another topical story of today. It deals with the trauma-syndrome that many soldiers face when they return from war, and find that they have to fight the war from within themselves.
Thomas becomes injured in a mine explosion while deployed in Afghanistan, andreturns home to rehabilitate. He is angry, bitter and desperate to get back on his feet, but it is a long process. He then meets Sophie, a ballet dancer with the Royal Danish Ballet, whom he rejects at first, but who slowly resurrects his physical and mental strength.
The ballet scenes are a highlight of this engrossing film, and Thomas’ spirits are uplifted. Sophie’s dream is achieved when she is selected to dance in New York. She now has to make a tough decision between the rehabilitated soldier Thomas and her promising ballet career.
The movie created waves at many international film festivals, and was one of three movies nominated by the country for the Oscars in 2017.
Kulturbunkeren.dk (Danish); ‘ Different and accomplished romantic drama.’
Bulles de Culture (French): ‘A re-birth through love’.
