unforgettable by the best of critics worldwide, has been inspired by an

extraordinary true story based on the novel by the same name authored by David

Miserables’ has wielded the megaphone of this gem of a movie, as described by

critics! Besides bagging Golden Globe Nominations, the film has also managed to

win Laurels and encomiums at the Venice International Film Festival, Toronto

International Film Festival etc. it has also been bestowed upon with honors at the

Hollywood Film Awards Forum.

The screenplay has been set in the 1920s in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark.

Gerda Wegener (Alicia Vikander) is a renowned sculptor. Unable to get an

appropriate model of a girl whom she had visualized in her mind, Gerda takes the

liberty of summoning the services of her husband, Einar Wegener (Eddie

Redmayne) to pose before her as a woman!

The sessions of sculpting continue and soon Einar begins to transform into a

woman, his characteristics too undergoing phenomenal changes! Lili Elbe is his,

no, ‘her’ name, as at the moment! While Geda is stunned and stupefied by the

‘transformation’ of Einar, enters Hans Axgil (Mattias Schoenaerts), an old time

acquaintance who adds a new ‘flavor’ to the existing situation!
