Centering on the intriguing love triangle between the ever more insane Danish King Christian VII, The royal physician who is a man of enlightenment and idealism Struensee and the young but strong Queen Caroline Mathilda, A royal affair is the gripping tale of brave idealists who risk everything in their pursuit of freedom for their people.
Saw this movie some days ago. It had just everything a drama movie needs. The love, the jealousy, the sorrow, the passion and everything else that could be needed. I was completely taken by the story.
Alicia Vikander and Mads Mickelsen was stunningly perfect in their roles. They are a beautiful couple but it's the king Christian who loads the movie with tension.
The movie is build on a book wich is build on reality. I really like that, the reality in the movie makes the movie even better. Every scene in the movie is therefore more intense. Because you always have the feeling in the back of the head that everything has really happened.
I really recommend you all to see this movie. It's one of the best drama movies I have ever seen. I usually don't like drama. It's usually cheesy but this wasn't. So, se it!
