Kann ein Film, der sehr gut besetzt ist, stark gespielt und wunderschön gemacht, einen trotzdem kalt lassen? Ist es möglich, technisch alles richtig zu machen und doch nicht das Gefühl anzusprechen? Kann man Erfahrungen vorführen, ohne sie zu teilen? Bei The Danish girl ist dieser vermeintliche Widerspruch passiert. The Danish Girl erzählt die Geschichte eines Künstleris, Einar Wegener (Eddie Redmayne), der sich später in Lili Elbe verwandelt. Alles geschah etwas vor hundert Jahren. Das Weibliche schwingt zunächst nur ganz leicht mit, etwa wenn er lächelt oder eine flüchtige Handbewegung macht. Irgendwann zieht er sich Seidenstoff über die Beine als Täuschung für den Maler (Einar ersetzt ein Modell), schliesslich als Spiel mit Geschlecht und Identität.

A Boy/Girl Story

'The Danish Girl' tackles a subject rarely seen in this kind of dramatic format. The film builds up a deep swell between it's main characters. We understand the inner complexities of this man's struggle with personal identity, as well as the heartbreak and loving acceptance of his wife. Redmayme brings his best, accurately detailing the internalized confusion of his changing state and the affect the judgement of the outside world brings on him.

The Danish Girl - Movie Review

Nice try Eddie Redmayne and Tom Hooper. I know for a fact that the two of you wanted a second Oscar so badly, so you made this movie, but this isn't fooling anyone.

The Danish Girl is about a Danish artist, depicted her husband, Einer, as a female in one of her paintings. As the painting gains attention, Einer begins to transform as well - becoming more and more feminine until Einer becomes Lili Elbe - and becomes the first person to receive a male-to-female sex reassignment surgery. While Gerda is supportive, she comes to realize this change will prove a challenging ordeal to their relationship - even more so when Hans Axgil, an art dealer and old friend of Einer, comes into her life.

Oscar bait movies like this really makes my skin crawl, because this movie literally ticks off way...
