Aperçu de l'évaluation
Résumé de l'évaluation
The story line is readily acceptable and the beautiful transformation that takes place as Eva grows up and becomes victorious over human foibles, cultural ostracization and family failures is simply splendid. I did an immediate search for the "historical background" to the film - an instead found the film is lovely tribute to the novel by Erik Fosnes Hansen and the increasingly astonishing success of the Scandinavian film industry. Bravo.
In 1912, a Norwegian woman dies in childbirth, leaving behind a daughter born with hypertrichosis, or excessive hair growth, and a grieving husband who hides the girl from gawkers.
