Film Review of The Danish Girl

Film Review of The Danish Girl


By:  Afshan Naheed Hashmi, PhD, C(ASCP), RAC


Hello Everyone,

Bollywood, Hollywood and film personalities around the globe have always fascinated me as they are very creative people.  I love Creativity and Innovation.  

On Monday November 30, 2015  I had the opportunity to attend special screening of  "The Danish Girl". ( Courtesy:  DC Filmmakers). Although the weather was rainy on Monday but I really wanted to see this movie. The movie is  based on the 2000 novel of the same name by David Ebershoff. (


A 2015 British-American pseudo-biographical drama film directed by Tom Hooper.

The film stars Eddie Redmayne as Lili Elbe, one of the first known recipients of sex reassignment surgery, Alicia Vikander as Gerda Wegener, along with Matthias Schoenaerts as Hans Axgil and Ben Whishaw as Henrik. The movie was released in a limited release on November 27, 2015 by Focus Features. This film was screened in the main competition section of the 72nd Venice International Film Festival, Also it was shown in the Special Presentations section of the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.

The Danish Girl is a love story of unconditional love a husband and wife share and that is why it catches audience  heart so deeply.. The true story focuses on a young married couple Einar (Redmayne) and Gerda Wegener (Alicia Vikander), two artists living in Copenhagen. One day, Gerda decides to get Einar to pose as a woman model for one of her paintings. this innocent act of modeling session puts Einar off in a surprising direction when he slowly discovers he was actually destined to live as a woman. He adopts the name Lili and embarks on to have an operation to fully transition into living life as Lili in every way. 

Some of that might  point towards the hot topic, which has made headlines recently, with Caitlyn Jenner and the Emmy-winning Amazon series Transparent among others.  The Danish Girl has captured not only my heart but it will capture the heart of many as you see a beautiful love story of unconditional love.

I believe this movie is an Oscar- winning product.

I give the movie 5 Stars.

Here is the trailer of the movie:


Cheers from your loving Author and Film-Critic!

A little slow in the beginning but picks up when Lili comes on scene. The beginning is rather mundane and interactions between actors were ordinary, rather flat and lackluster. I felt as if those scenes were shot first, perhaps should have been shot after the more dramatic material, if they were. Of course, I knew the story and the outcome failed to take me beyond that level of expectation. I give it three stars but give Eddie Redmayne the Oscar nod for his performance. Alonzo Crawford
