Belladonna

Jytte Rex, Denmark, 1981

90 min.DK/Feature

Belladonna means beautiful woman but is also the name of the deadly nightshade, the juice of which will render its imbiber unable to distinguish between dream and reality. A larger dose may be fatal. During a journey through her subconscious mind, Judith experiences love, fire and death in her relationships with a number of characters: her mother, her sister, her daughter and a madwoman.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
