Ep. 2 - Once Upon a Time in Denmark

Art of Scandinavia

Hans Christian Andersen's story of the Ugly Duckling is still one of the most popular fairytales, recounting how beauty and wonder are born out of a world that appears to have played a nasty trick on us. This is a film about the northern light - its coldness and its cutting brilliance. It is about the beauty of the Snow Queen, eroticism of a different sort and how the doubt and darkness of Episode 1 give way to a different kind of beauty and meaning.
