Through the Mirror

Stig Björkman, Denmark, 1980

73 min.DK/Feature

It has been fourteen years of an increasingly suffocating marriage for Lene. Her husband's career has always taken precedence over her own at home-work as a literary translator. They have a young son to consider, too. A visiting American photographer kindles an inner flame of revolt. Within a few hours, she must make a choice, not necessarily between the two men: Is there a third way to freedom?

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.
