Little Soldier (Lille Soldat)
Trine Dyrholm, Finn Nielsen, Lorna Brown, Rasmus Botoft, Jens Jørn Spottag, Thure Lindhardt, Henrik Prip / Fiction / Danish, English
A powerful drama of family ties and gender roles, exquisitely performed.
A soldier with a violent temper returns from war, and takes a job ferrying call girls to meet their clients – plus providing protective muscle should the need arise. Things are complicated by the fact that the soldier in question is a woman, and the pimp in charge her father... This uncompromising and moving study of relationships under strain is brilliantly handled by acclaimed Danish director Annette K Olesen (Minor Mishaps; In Your Hands).
