Worth watching dept: Ehrengard

Ehrengard: The Art of Seduction is a Danish film based on the novel Ehrengard by Karen Blixen. 

The film is about a young painter named Casotte (Mikkel Boe Følsgaard) who is hired by the Grand Duchess to teach her son how to find a wife. Casotte becomes infatuated with a woman named Ehrengard (Alice Esther Leisner). 

The plan backfires and leads to scandal and unexpected romance.  The film is set in the fairy-tale kingdom of Babenhausen.  The Grand Duchess wants to secure an heir for her son, Prince Lothar. 

The plan takes a dramatic turn when an heir is conceived out of wedlock. The royal family must flee. The film stars Sidse Babett Knudsen and Mikkel Boe Følsgaard. Bille August directed the film. It is rated 1.5/5 on Rotten Tomatoes.  I give it 9 on http://tvreviewer.com

This was the subject of a question I asked the other day on http://OfficeHours.Global

10:47:38 am Lifting the Veil, Behind the Scenes of Ehrengard is a behind the scenes view of the sets and costumes of Ehrengard. What are other great “behind the scenes” films? This was just released on Netflix. Highly recommend! Must watch Ehrengard! https://www.netflix.com/title/81702546
