Very interesting arc to the story, marvelous performances by stars, good intellectual message. Movie making craft well displayed, psychology accurate. Worthwhile experience.

This movie was SO well done. I have been telling everyone about this film. The acting was brilliant as were the costumes and set design.

Very nicely done. I laughed, I got angry, I sat at the edge of my seat, I cried...it was well acted, flawlessly written and beautiful. (Mikkelsen is Brilliant!!) I enjoyed every character...The King, The Doctor, The Queen, The Court....even the dog. Mikkelsen's ability to change the mood of a single moment with only the slightest adjustment in his expression is Incredible! To convey something clearly with such a subtle change without saying a single word is a skill all it's own...Bravo!! (Mikkelsen also does this quite well in Hannibal) I enjoyed it from beginning to end. I am a Mads fan but even if I weren't this is definitely a must see! Forget that it's a "period" piece (as some will avoid it for that very reason) go see it because its History, because its true, because its a love story between three very different people....see it because its worth seeing!

I absolutely loved this movie! The look, the feeling, the characters. I really hated that it had to end . Subtitled movies are not for everyone but if you go to them or have never been to one, go see this!
