What a powerful story. Slight differences to Lili's own historical story, but interesting story and very acted by all.
Wow. Incredible story, acting was incredible and had me going the whole time
A fictitious love story based on a Danish couple. The story pulls you into the movie and makes it interesting viewing.
Spot on acting from the two leads and the set designs, props and wardrobe are excellent. The screenplay could never be boring because of the subject matter.
Like other reviewers while I enjoyed the costume, the artistry of the film and the story it seemed to be lacking depth for such a hugely significant story.
Kind of novel, but I was expecting more. They should have brought out more of the emotional thoughts and turmoil rather than just presenting the real life facts. AV is easy to watch and overall an... Read more okay movie, but I would have liked it in original language and it might have brought it up a notch. This movie is a take it or leave it kind of movie. If you are interested in the storyline or like the actors, then I would recommend it. If you are looking for something powerful or groundbreaking, then maybe keep looking.
I was conflicted about this film. I found it beautifully shot (the scenery and costumes are exquisite) and well-acted, but I was also disappointed by the shallowness of the plot and script. These focused... Read more on the superficial and cultural aspects of presenting as a woman, rather than having conversations about what it meant and how it affected both of them - and their relationship. A film about the real life of these two painters would have been far more satisfying.
Great movie, kept me interested from Wo to Go.
A little sanitised I felt.
It's based on a novel, not a autobiography, and that's part of the problem. It's just too polite for its own good. The real story is far more interesting, and much more harrowing, but Tom Hooper has... Read more gone for the soft approach as he usually does. I thought it was very ordinary, and Eddie Redmayne's acclaimed performance irritatingly drippy. So it's left to Alicia Vickander to hold it together which she does. It also avoids the one question that everyone wants answered. What is it exactly that makes an apparently happily married man try on a pair of stockings and suddenly find his inner woman unleashed? The true story solves this, but this pretty film doesn't even try.
