Isolde

Jytte Rex, Denmark, 1989

95 min.DK/Feature

Not a modern version of "Tristan and Isolde" although the classic tragedy does pierce the fabric of the present-day narrative in subconscious flashes through the mind of the title character, who leaves a husband; is attracted to a young student; and falls in love with a mercenary soldier on leave and for hire, i.e. he is hired by the spurned husband, a politician, to kill none other than Isolde.

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.
