The Pact

115 minutes 2021 6.5

It is 17 years since Karen Blixen gave up the adventure in Africa and moved back to Denmark to a life in ruins. Destroyed by syphilis and crushed after having lost the love of her life and her farm, she reinvents herself as an artistic superstar. Now, at the age of 63, Karen Blixen is world famous, but also lives an isolated life - until she meets the 30-year-old poet Thorkild Bjørnvig. Together they make a pact: She promises to make him a great artist in exchange for him obeying her unconditionally - no matter what it costs...
