Cherry Blossom Ballad

Irene Werner Stage, Denmark, 1990

96 min.DK/Feature

A middle-aged woman lives alone with her dreams in her childhood home. Dreams have become her foremost reality. It seems that once, during World War 2, she married a man picked out for her by her Nazi father and spurned the nice German officer who wooed her. A young man on an official errand visits the house. His reality and her dreams merge in ways that reopen old wounds, making her lash out furiously.

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.
