I went to see The Danish Girl today. It is a remarkable film, though not necessarily an easy one.

The performances were remarkable. Eddie Redmayne has been getting all the press, but I reckoned Alicia Vikander was equally impressive.

I actually had a bit of a problem with Redmayne - because his performance in The Theory of Everything was just so good. And there were moments in The Danish Girl where I lost the character - and I saw instead Stephen Hawking!

But Redmayne was remarkable in the film too. In some ways, it as a small film - a total of six speaking parts, I reckon - but full of big emotions. I'm not sure I entirely believed in the way they behaved - despite being set in the 1920s, it dealt with issues that are still very current, and it as hard not to bring a 21st century sensibility to the film.

But that's not the film's fault. It was a very thoughtful, well paced to and brave film. And it looked beautiful.
