Critic Reviews for En soap
Fear of Flying never got made into a movie. But imagine a 21st century version transported to Denmark with a transsexual thrown in for added titillation, and you've got the gist of the amusing melodrama Soap.
Another week, another movie about a depressed transsexual hooker.
... the film is an anti-soap opera in the trappings of an old- fashioned sudsfest.
The idea that these characters are willing to fight like cats and dogs, and destroy each other and themselves, to avoid confronting their intense attraction to each other is totally convincing.
[The film takes] some of its cues from the soaps and melodramas the characters watch together and others from a realist tradition of considerable emotional heft.
Audience Reviews for En soap
Excellent! Kind of reminded me of Transamerica, but slightly darker, while still having a bit of froth to it as the title suggests. Both the leads are good in this, but I was particularly impressed with David Dencik who plays Veronica.
[font=Century Gothic]"Soap" starts with Charlotte(Trine Dyrholm), a beauty salon owner, walking out on her boyfriend, Kristian(Frank Thiel), a doctor, suddently while he is out of town, moving into the first apartment she can find. When Kristian will not help her move her bed, she goes downstairs to the local pre-op transsexual dominatrix, Veronica(David Dencik), for help which she does reluctantly. Later, Charlotte drops by unannounced at her place, only to find her suffering from an overdose.[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"Soap" is an adequate character study of two people who are not happy with who they are and do not know what they want out of life. Veronica may say she wants an operation but her masculine appearance does not show much commitment to her hormone regimen while her overdose speaks of deeper issues than just gender. Speaking of a lack of commitment, there is Charlotte, who is the poster child, simply by trying to have sex with every man in Scandinavia. For a bourgeois relationship, her four years with Kristian is a little unusual in that it had gone on for so long without them getting married.[/font]
