A Horrible Woman

A Horrible Woman, "En Frygtelig Kvinde"

Synopsis

Director

When Rasmus meets Marie, he is certain that he has finally met the love of his life. Soon, however, Marie shows herself to be a dominating and demanding creature. Rasmus doesn’t count. A story about women who insist on being dominant in a relationship, as seen through the eyes of a man. A truthful portrait of the horrible nature of woman, with a hefty dose of satire.
„It’s a film about everyday terrorism that women commit on men. It’s not because I hate women, it’s only because I’ve spent the last 24 years of my life finding out how to survive in a relationship with them“. – Christian Tafdrup, film director
