OPEN HEARTS is the latest Dogme film to reach UK shores. This moving drama explores the fragility of life as it follows the fate of two couples following a sudden event that will change their lives forever. Cecilie (Richter) and Joachim (Kaas) are a young couple soon to be married – but something unexpectedly transforms everything. Marie (Steen) and Niels (Mikkelsen) are a happily married couple with three children who find that their life together also changes radically. Leavening drama with flashes of humour, OPEN HEARTS is about losing control, looking life in the face, and having the courage to harness the power of love.
Directed by Susanne Bier
