One for fans of Birgitte Hjort Sørensen,
This review is from: Julie - en kamp om kærlighed (DVD)
This 2011 film Julie - en kamp om kærlighed features star of the winter 2012 BBC4/DR Danish hit Borgen - Series 1 [DVD] Birgitte Hjort Sørensen in the title role. Loosely based on Swedish August Strinberg's play Miss Julie, Sørensen appears in most scenes of the film.
A spoilt tennis player Julie throws herself into the arms of her coach Jan (Rolf Hansen) quite indifferent to the fact that he already has a fiance Kristine (Trine Appel). As one evening progresses it seems that Julie is losing her manipulative power game.
The film has received mixed reviews in the Danish press in general seeing it as a mediocre film. I was particulary interested in seeing Sørensen in a different role to that of journalist Katrine in Borgen. Julie is certainly a different girl to Katrine and 10/10 to Sørensen for making her part so believable.
The film is around 75 minutes long and is entirely in Danish with English subtitles.
The first series of Borgen ends in a few days, this is the ideal replacement for admirers of Sørensen until series 2.
