Polish premiere of “Queen of Hearts” directed by May el-Toukhy
Danish Cultural Institute, in cooperation with Gutek film, has the pleasure to invite to the Polish premiere of the film Queen of Hearts, directed by May el-Toukhy. The winner of the audience award at the Sundance festival is a provocative, engaging and dark tale that raises questions bothering the world in the #metoo era. This fascinating melodrama reverses the roles: the seducer is a mature woman in her, and a seduced one -seventeen-year-old boy. They both fall into the trap of lust, pride and lies.
Queen of Hearts is a perfect combination of a psychological cinema with an erotic drama created by an extremely talented female trio: director Maya El-Toukhy, screenwriter Maren Louise Käehne and prominent Danish actress Trine Dyrholm (“Commune”, “Wedding in Sorrento”). The film allows you to look at lust from a female point of view, and thanks to the phenomenal, bold role of Dyrholm – experience its intensity.
