Pain of Love

Nils Malmros, Denmark, 1992

120 min.DK/Feature

Auteur filmmaker Nils Malmros' first departure from his "schooldays in the 1950s" theme is an amotionally drenching exploration of a seemingly normal and extrovert young woman's increasingly errant way through her first adult relationships and the birth of her first child. Clearly a manic-depressive, no amount of tenderness showed her by those who really care can protect her from her inner demons.

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. Se listen over prioriterede festivaler.
