Key House MIrror (Nøgle hus spejl)

Denmark - 91min - dir. Michael Noer

Danish with English subtitles

Lily (76) is sure there’s nothing wrong with her. The only reason she lives in a care home is because of her husband Max's illness: a series of strokes has reduced him to a vegetable. The fact that Lily isn’t exactly the way she used to be becomes slowly clear in the Danish drama Key House Mirror - the title refers to a memory test. It’s not easy for Lily to leave her old habits behind her and fit in with the rules of the home. Her life blossoms when she meets an 80-year-old Swedish neighbour, a charming man who gives her the attention she has long missed. Lily’s daughter, however, is not so happy with the budding romance.

The prospect of love and sex at Lily’s stage of life, and the ripples it causes in her family, is consistently intriguing and well-dramatised. ” (Fionnuala Halligan, Screen Daily)
