  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: This transfer uses very light subtitles, so light that it is more often than not very hard to read them. As few viewers will speak Danish this is a very serious fault which I am astonished was not identified in the pre-print proof run.
