A Royal AffairHere’s the debut trailer from ‘A Royal Affair,’ starring the Hannibal to be, Mads Mikkelsen. The film has been well received by critics and was a stand out at the Berlin Film Festival, where Mikkel Følsgaard won the Silver Bear for Best Actor and Nikolaj Arcel and Rasmus Heisterberg won the award for Best Script.

 

The fim is set in the 18th century, at the court of the mentally ill King Christian VII of Denmark, and focuses on the romance between the queen and the royal physician Struensee.

 

It was produced by Zentropa and is a co-production among Denmark, Sweden and the Czech Republic. It had a budget of 46 million Danish kroner. Before settling on the final title, the film had the production titles Dronningen og livlægen (“The queen and the royal physician”) and Caroline Mathildes år (“Caroline Mathilde’s years”)

 

Its a giant step for Denmark who is trying to break into the film world as the Asian nations have done with great effectiveness over the last decade. The film will be showcased at The 2012 Toronto Film Festival.
