Walk with Me

(De standhaftige)
Denmark/Sweden 2016. Dir: Lisa Ohlin. 105 min. Blu-ray Disc

A Danish serviceman seriously wounded in Afghanistan and a rising-star ballerina with the Royal Danish Ballet form an unlikely bond in Walk with Me, an affecting, slow-burning romantic drama directed by Swede Lisa Ohlin. Thomas (Mikkel Boe Følsgaard) lost two limbs to a landmine and is desperately impatient with the pace of his recovery. Sophie (Cecilie Lassen) is visiting a hospitalized relative when she meets Thomas and offers to help him with a more intensive rehabilitation plan. Følsgaard played mad King Christian in the Oscar-nominated arthouse hit A Royal Affair, for which he won Best Actor honours at Berlin. Lassen, here making her screen acting debut, is herself a former Royal Danish Ballet ballerina. The film was inspired by the real-life collaboration between the Danish Wounded Warrior Project and the RDB. In Danish with English subtitles.
