DronningenQueen of Hearts

Homage, Denmark / Sweden 2019, 125 Min., dan., sw. OV, engl. st

Anne and Peter are a picture-perfect couple. They live with their charming twin daughters in a modernist mansion at the edge of a forest. Both have fulfilling professions; he is a doctor, and she is a lawyer working with abused young women. Even though Anne leads the kind of life she thinks one should, a shadow seems to be hanging over her. Occasionally, when the camera lingers on her face, the otherwise sovereign forty-something woman suddenly seems like an onlooker to her own existence. More and more often, her eyes fall upon Gustav, her husband's son from a previous relationship. The 17-year-old, sporting closely cropped hair and a silver chain around his neck, recently came to live with them. Anne finds his aggressive behaviour provocative – including sexually. Trine Dyrholm succeeds in portraying a woman who is incapable of recognizing herself, and who plays with her power and crosses boundaries without taking responsibility.
