Storyline

Kirsten is a young woman still in school. She falls in love with her teacher Søren. When she fails to pass her exams, Søren helps her prepare for new exams, but she is disappointed when Søren moves in with his colleague Inge-Lise. Kirsten sleeps with an older man she meets in a bar, and when she becomes pregnant she chooses to have the baby. But she is hit by depression and is only barely saved when she tries to kill herself and her unborn child. Although Søren and Kirsten move in together after she has her baby, their life together is marked by distance and sadness because of Kirsten's mood swings and paranoia, and it comes to a dramatic ending. Written by Peter Brandt Nielsen

An Exquisite Portrayal of Heartache
23 August 2011 | by NorwegianhereticSee all my reviews

The Pain of Love shows just that - the depth to which a person who has fixated on another person can drop. I saw this film almost 20 years ago and have never forgotten it. I saw two other pictures by Nils Malmros, both remarkable (TREE OF KNOWLEDGE & BOYS). This guy has the talent reminiscent of Ingmar Bergman. I live in Los Angeles and his films are never released here (I saw all his titles at film festivals)- it's very depressing not to have access to his works.

The actress who plays the lead character displays emotions that I have felt in my darker moments. She was truly able to transmit the sensation of deep depression.
