Paprika Steen is such a brilliant actress and in this movie she acted with much aplomb. As acclaimed actress Thea she's battling alcoholism for awhile and this is the reason she has become estranged to her kids. From the looks of it, the overlapping scenes where it shows Steen as Thea and as stage actress Martha seems to overlap and viewers can clearly see a state of distort and confusion in Thea's character. Commendable performances from Michael Falch and the rest of the cast. This is worth checking out!
