Great story, good effort, but poor result

The story could have been very dramatic and deeply touching, as it is a true story of both the internal conflicts of a man and the deep love of a woman to her partner. Unfortunately the meticulous attention to image rather than screenplay (to me) resulted in a quite cold and un- engaging movie, where beautiful costumes, interiors and landscapes are the only highlights. I found that even the acting of the brilliant young Eddie Redmayne was not that good, as his constant smiles and shy blinking eyes after a while seem to be the only stratagem he has to portray such a complex character (and after the first dozen of them I couldn't stand it anymore). A more sophisticated psychological portrait of the main character and a more dramatic rendition of his/her troubled soul would have given more solidity to a movie which seems too superficial.

Second time unlucky for Redmayne

THE DANISH GIRL is a surprisingly unworkable historical drama from the director behind THE KING'S SPEECH. It's about a Danish couple whose loves were thrown into turmoil by the husband's decision to transition into a woman in an era when such a thing was unheard of. Based on a true story, this is notable for featuring big name actor Eddie Redmayne trying to recapture some of the glory he gained in playing Stephen Hawking in THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING, but it's second time unlucky for the actor. Where his performance as Hawking convinced, here he seems extremely superficial, merely fluttering his eyelashes a lot in his attempt to convince as a woman born in a man's body. The whole thing is slow and dragged out to a turgid pace, and all of the cast feel icy cold and unsympathetic. Alicia Vikander is miscast as the wife and looks and acts like a petulant child for a lot of the running time. It's an unremarkable film I really struggled to finish.

Interesting watch

I enjoyed the film, it was interesting, but I did find Eddie Redmayne really annoying, kept doing this wide eyed look anout, or wide eyes look away that just made him look a bit crazy eyed! The female lead was awesome. Well worth a watch.
