  • Summary: Can't get enough of Mads Mikkelsen, who was so riveting in Oscar-nominated "The Hunt" (2013) and so riveting here as well. This was a nicely told period piece that may bring a couple of others to mind at times -- "Marie Antoinette" in the young queen's situation; "Amadeus" with the somewhat crazy young king and the palace treachery.

  • Summary: A historical lesson from a period drama about the age of the Enlightenment in Denmark, a national revolution conducted by a German foreigner Dr. Johann Struensee (Mikkelsen) and his romantic involvement with Caroline Mathilde (Vikander), the Queen of King Christian VII (Boe Følsgaard), another exemplar of how arranged marriage really sucks!

  • Excerpt: Een erg mooi historisch drama! Goed en overtuigend acteerwerk van de hoofdpersonen vertolkt door Mads Mikkelsen en Alicia Vikander. De tragiek van het leven aan het hof wordt goed neergezet - intriges, echte maar verboden liefde, etcetera. Hulde voor de vormgeving van de karakters (uiteraard in hoeverre ze werkelijk de geschiedenis recht doen) en kostuums, erg goed gedaan!

  • Excerpt: "En Kongelig Affære" is een sfeervol historisch drama van de Deense regisseur Nikolaj Arcel. In deze Deens-Zweeds-Tsjechische coproductie wordt een interessant waargebeurd verhaal verteld, dat doet denken aan de historie van Rasputin. De film valt o.a. op door mooie locaties, door overtuigende kostuums en decors, door prachtige belichting, door efficiënt camerawerk. Er wordt goed geacteerd.

  • Excerpt: Dit is een prachtige historische film. Ook als je niets van geschiedenis af weet is het boeiend van de eerste tot de laatste minuut. Het verhaal zit vol romantiek, politieke intrige en (on)rechtvaardigheden. Sterk gespeeld en prachtig in beeld gebracht.

  • Summary: A European film which does not lack the luster of the Hollywood films, but however still intelligent and substantial. This film takes a fascinating chapter in Danish history, little-known to general public, and presents it engagingly. The direction, acting and production are all top notch and worthy of the Oscar nod from the American Academy.

  • Summary: This is based on the true story of a love triangle (King Christian VII, his queen and his doctor) and the changes they brought to Denmark in the age of Enlightenment. The plot unfolds predictably with able performances and gorgeous period richness (esp. the costumes). It's told in classic historical style with mild passion, intrigue and drama, but nothing about it is special.
