SFF: A Horrible Woman



Two young Danish people, Marie and Rasmus, meet and fall in love, but cracks appear in their relationship when they start to live together.

"A Horrible Woman" is a close look at a relationship and how it develops. The director delves right in to examine micro-moments and little aggression that are recognisably familiar. It's intriguing until a gender bias becomes apparent and the exploration starts to look lopsided. It's an error in judgement by the filmmaker. The last couple of scenes are a little contrived but forgiven because until the last minutes this is a psychologically well-constructed movie. Bitchin'.
