The Danish Girl: Tom Hooper had an interesting story in his hands, but tells it in a bland, uninteresting way. While Eddie Redmayne has the perfect face and complexion to play his role, his acting is manneristic, stilted, calculated. Alicia Vikander, by the other hand, is great in her role, mixing loveliness, strength and despair. The film has a certain visual elegance (the locations and Paco Delgado’s costumes are beautiful without exageration), despite some framing choices by cinematographer Danny Cohen. Alexandre Desplat’s score is overcooked.
