Married to one of Denmark's greatest painters, Marie Krøyer lives a peaceful, largely contented life with her husband and their daughter, offering interior decorating tips to their wealthy friends. Then, as her husband's health begins to fail, he becomes mentally unstable and on a trip to Sicily, she falls in love with Swedish composer Hugo Alfvén. Caught between her own desires and her sense of duty, Marie is confronted with a stark choice. Making his first film in Danish in 25 years, two-time Best Film winner at Cannes Bille August returns with this richly detailed account of a complex, contradictory and ultimately very modern woman.
