Berlinale 2012: A ROYAL AFFAIR by Nikolaj Arcel Starring Mads Mikkelsen and Alicia Vikander

A Royal Affair Another movie that will premiere at this year’s Berlin Film Festival In Competition category is A Royal Affair and comes from Nikolaj Arcel. The movie is based on actual historical events, but still, director managed to create a mixture of historical-political thriller, romance and tragedy. And that’s what you will see from the great pictures and the first trailer for the movie in the rest of this report… A Royal Affair A Royal Affair follows Johann Friedrich Struensee, town physician and doctor to the poor of Altona who accompanies his monarch in 1768 on the latter’s year-long trip around Europe. During the journey, he gains the trust of the psychologically unstable king and is made his personal physician. A Royal Affair But Struensee wants more: together with Queen Caroline Mathilde, who falls in love with the handsome and assertive medic, he increasingly takes over state affairs. Committed to the grand ideas of European enlightenment, he implements freedom of the press and of expression, abolishes torture and serfdom, reforms the school system and curtails the privileges of the aristocracy. The aristocrats, however, fearing for their wealth and power, refuse to take this ‘blasphemous activity’ lying down. Eventually, the reformer ends up on trial. A Royal Affair As for A Royal Affair cast, I’m sure you will find it interesting as well, because Mads Mikkelsen, Alicia Vikander, Trine Dyrholm, David Dencik and Mikkel Boe Følsgaard all star in this movie. I’m actually interested in this project, so I’ll give Arcel and his team a try. And you, make sure to share your thoughts on this movie and stay tuned!
