Synopsis:
The emotions a married couple can undergo in one day can range from frustration to passionate love. This is true for Danish newlyweds Bruno and Maxine who have just moved into a stylish apartment in Copenhagen. A while later it is clear that Bruno’s love for Maxine is stronger than hers is for him. In fact, his love for Maxine is more like an obsession. He yearns to literary crawl under her skin. After some rough sex games, and as bodily fluids begin to mix, something starts to transform Bruno and his primitive instincts take over. This beast-like transformation intensifies rapidly after he discovers Maxine is having an affair. Director Christoffer Boe has described »Beast« as a cocktail of »Who’s afraid of Virginia Wolf?« and »Alien«, in which love, hate, blood and possessed bodies are the main ingredients. Actor Nicolas Bro, playing Bruno, has collaborated with Boe six times previously. He is a powerhouse in this film, giving an intense performance as the let down husband with a severe case of blood thirst. ~ Stockholmfilmfestival Continue reading
