    As a fan of Madds Mikkelsen, I was eager to watch the film, A Royal affair. I’m not so big on history movies, but I figured I would give this particular movie a chance. It’s described to be a romance drama film, which usually makes for a good watch.
  • A Royal Affair (2012 Film)
  • A Royal affair revolves around a young woman, Caroline who is Queen and her husband, Christian who is King of Denmark and is mentally ill. He’s considered crazy, but is a smart man, but is also really a boy in a grown man’s body. This is how Johann comes on the scene. He becomes the Royal physician and what I would call the bestfriend figure since he all but understand’s Christian and what drives him to be the way he is.

  • Christain in most of the movie acts like a young teenager. He is often drunk, and running through the castle with prostitutes at all times of the night. It’s sickening to watch because everyone basically turns a blind eye to his actions. His wife is just expected to sit back and act like nothing is happening.

  • This leaves Caroline emotional open and vulnerable to fall for the smart, carefree Johann. Their attraction to each other is subtle at first, but it’s quick to become a burning flame that eventually cannot be denied. Of course this where the downfall happens. Their passion is forbidden, but they keep it a secret and often meet behind the scenes. They get comfortable in their affair, and Caroline ends up pregnant.

  • By this point, my eyes are glued to the screen. The movie takes and interesting turn. Not only between the Caroline or Johann but for King, and the country of Denmark. There’s more to this movie than just the romance, but an actual historical storytelling that isn’t boring but gripping.

  • A royal affair is a powerful, beautiful movie that is not only appealing physically, but it makes one think. Love, happens in the unlikely of places, to the unlikeliest of people. The visuals of this movie feel so real, and costumes are beautifully designed. For a while, I was sitting there just memorized.

    A royal affair is a movie that stuck with me. It’s emotional, breathtaking, moving and amazingly written. There were some parts that brought tears to my eyes and others that had me laughing out loud. I ended up watching it again, just to understand everything that happened. There’s so much to this movie that doesn’t meet the eye at first.

    The actors in this film did a fantastic job in their role portrayals. You could feel the emotion oozing through the screen. I couldn’t have imagined anyone in their places.

    I would recommend this movie to a friend.
