Movie Info

After two years in a mental institution, housewife Kira (Stine Stengade) comes home to her husband, Mads (Lars Mikkelsen), and their children, hoping to reconnect with her family and get on with her life. But things go wrong almost immediately, as she hysterically, though not without reason, accuses Mads of infidelity. After she confronts her father (Sven Wollter) about family secrets, Kira's mental stability deteriorates even further, and she and her family must decide what course to take.

Critic Reviews for Kira's Reason: A Love Story

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (6)

  • Stengarde gives an arresting performance as a mentally unstable woman.

    January 17, 2003 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • The film never particularly achieves any depth or resonance and ultimately comes across as a series of wacky, albeit rather disturbing episodes.

    January 17, 2003
  • Despite Kira's Reason's chamber-drama focus, it never achieves [Madsen's] first film's intimacy.

  • In Stine Stengade's intensely engaging performance, Kira is always one step away from the abyss, although, without apparent effort, she manages to hang on.

    October 24, 2002 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Tying up the psychological loose ends of a movie that promised so much more, the trite ending subscribes to the bogus therapeutic notion that one good cry and a confession of vulnerability can wipe away a lifetime of repression.

    October 23, 2002 | Rating: 2/5
  • Easily one of the most affecting films of the year.

    October 23, 2002 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
