Does passion justify crossing borders? When does grooming turn into exploitation? "Queen of Hearts" by Danish director May el-Toukhy, winner of the audience award at the Sundance Festival, is a provocative, captivating and dark tale that raises questions bothering the world in the #metoo era - only that it finds unobvious answers for them. This fascinating melodrama reverses the roles: the seducer is a mature woman in her, and a seduced seventeen-year-old. Both fall into the trap of lust, pride and lies.
Anne (Trine Dyrholm) is a respected lawyer who helps minors of sexual harassment. Her husband, Peter (Magnus Krepper) is a valued doctor. High economic, professional and social status allows them to lead a comfortable life in an elegant estate where they raise their twin daughters. One day, Gustav (Gustav Lindh) appears in their home - rebellious teenage son Peter from his first marriage. His presence will awaken Anne's dormant desires, fueled by glances, gestures, casual touch. Is a forbidden relationship in which to gain a moment of erotic fulfillment, and to lose - everything is worth the risk?
"Królowa Kier" is a perfect combination of a psychological cinema with an erotic drama created by an extremely talented female trio: director Maya El-Toukhy, screenwriter Maren Louise Käehne and prominent Danish actress Trine Dyrholm ("Commune", "Wedding in Sorrento"). The film allows you to look at lust from a female point of view, and thanks to the phenomenal, bold role of Dyrholm - experience its intensity.
