Rating: 7/10

The story of a movie withing the movie during World War II. A lady has to be a part of the script writing for a movie.

The movie is said to be a feminist comedy drama and I was lucky enough to watch the Red Carpet Premiere at the Dubai International Film Festival along with the Director (Lone Scherfig), producer and actor (Bill Nighy).

Definitely a beautiful period movie with a some slight comic bits here and there, blended with heart touching sentimental scenes. Beautiful visuals; sound design and set design are wonderful. The performance of the actors are added to the quality of the movie.

As the movie movies towards the cliché of a Hollywood ending, the director decides the other way. A major shocking twist.

An unforgettable movie that will leave a mark in your heart. A must watch and highly recommended.
