2013 Oscar Foreign Language Films: ‘A Royal Affair’

2012 Berlin International Film Festival – Winners Silver Berlin Bear, Best Actor, Best Screenplay.

US release date: November 9

King Christian VII of Denmark was a crazy jerk. A moronic asshole; well, at least that’s the way he’s portrayed in this movie. Imagine a woman married to him, mothered his child. A rather grim picture, right? Now entered an older intelligent doctor with lots of radical ‘democratic’ ideas. Would she fall for him? Oh of course she would.

My Rating: 6/10
