Barbara

Nils Malmros, Denmark, 1997

143 min.DK/Feature

Love, and the pain often involved with it, has always been a central theme
in Nils Malmros' cinematic art. In filming Jørgen-Frantz Jacobsen's classic
novel, Barbara, Malmros has depicted one of the greatest love dramas in
Danish literature. A moving account of a young woman from the Faeroe Islands,
victim of her own passion, and femme fatale for all the men who are drawn to
her. Her inner nature, in the form of her overwhelming erotic obsession, is
the driving force in this psychologically intense narrative.
