Emma's Shadow
(Skyggen af Emma)
Denmark - 1988
Directed by Soeren Kragh-Jacobsen


Set in 1927 Copenhagen, this is a fairy-tale like story of a "poor little rich girl" who decides to fake her own kidnapping to capture the attention of her aloof parents.  Spoiled rotten, and acting as one who is accustomed to being treated like royalty, she convinces a poor ex-convict sewer worker, that she is being pursued by Bolsheviks who have murdered her entire family and are now after her.  Shunned by even the lowest element of society in Copenhagen, the peasant sets out to protect the little girl, teaching her about love and devotion in the process.

The sets and costumes are excellent.  Fine direction and editing adds an artistic quality that is carried throughout.  The musical score by Thomas Lindahl is delightfully appropriate for the story.  Emma's Shadow won the award for Best Film from the Bodil Festival (Denmark-1989).

"I rented Emma's Shadow on a whim, and now can honestly say it is one of my top 10 most favorite movies. What definitely makes the movie as wonderful as it is is Line Kruse, the beautiful 11 year-old who captures not only her friend Malthe's heart, but also ours - the audience. Here is a love story that many in society would automatically scoff at. Impossible, they would say - how could an 11 year-old and a man in his 40's be in love? Perhaps this is one of the movie's greatest lessons - children can fear, can hurt, can feel safe or afraid, can be happy, can be loyal, can love - just as adults can. I think most of us, too often, forget that.  "Emma's Shadow" reminds us of that."
