Critic Reviews for Becoming Astrid (Unga Astrid)
Throughout "Becoming Astrid," August acquits herself brilliantly; the woman we come to know is a tangle of impulses and qualities, and feels vibrantly alive.
Though "Becoming Astrid" is unflinching in its depictions of Astrid's pain, it does not wallow. A shallower story would be rife with villains, but there are none here.
Pippi Longstocking has sometimes been called an icon of feminist girl-power. If "Becoming Astrid' makes anything clear, it's that the character's creator was something of one herself.
This film about an exemplary woman, made by women, is as much a pleasure as it is a lesson.
Hansen's relaxed camera movements and fuzzy-soft compositions are quite beautiful, and the performances - including the superb Trine Dyrholm as the baby's Danish foster mother - are pitch-perfect.
