Daisy Diamond: Some of the most difficult viewing I've ever experienced
10 April 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Daisy Diamond is an award winning Danish drama, and one that will linger on my mind for months to come I can already tell.

It tells the story of a young single mother and her 4 month old baby. She is an aspiring but ultimately failing actress who is gradually resorting to more and more desperate measures to get anywhere in her career and keep a roof over their heads.

To make matters worse her little cherub won't stop crying, the shrill scream of a baby is a common noise here! Very very common noise.

Daisy Diamond is highly uncomfortable viewing, it's dark, it's sombre, it's depressing and it certainly had a lasting impression on me.

One thing that astounds me is how graphic the whole thing is, the amount of full frontal nudity from Rapace is incredible when you take into consideration where her career went from here. That stuff normally kills a career outright especially with the subject matter and the fact the movie seems to go out of its way to make her look physically bad at every turn.

A grim horrible movie, saved by some sterling acting and the sad realization that the movie is shockingly and heartbreakingly realistic.

The Good:

Well acted

Well written in places

Couple of decent characters

The Bad:

I actually had to mute the movie in places because of the baby crying

Devastating imagery

Not so much of a story as a greek tragedy

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

It concerns me how filmmakers make babies cry on cue

On paper this movie should have been career suicide for Rapace
