The Danish Girl – Reincarnated in another form

Revolving around a real character but based on the novel of the same name by David Ebershoff, The Danish Girl stands somewhere at the intersection between history and fiction, between a biopic and a literary adaptation.

The Danish Girl

Besides the inspirational and timely message, every other aspect about The Danish Girl is perfect to become a strong candidate for the 2015 Oscar. Like Tom Hooper’s previous films, the film

Actor Eddie Redmayne as Einar/Lili is clearly the star of The Danish Girl.

The role opposite to Lili is the wife Gerda

Too cautious in approaching a sensitive issue, The Danish Girl brings a polite but somewhat distant view of this special community, rather than actually getting close and learning to be able to understand it.

LGBT on the silver screen

Although the concept of LGBT, especially `sex change`, has been mentioned by experts very early and the first sex change surgeries were performed in the 1920s of the last century,

One of the important films of this early period is In a Year of 13 Moons (1978) directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, made during East Germany.

LGBT topics were almost never seriously mentioned in movies until the 1960s.

The Crying Game (1992) was one of the first mainstream audience-oriented films to address transgender issues as an important plot point in the film.

The 1990s also marked the international reach of Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar.

The 21st century comes with openness and excitement about topics related to the LGBT community in general, not just transgender people.
