Miss Viborg

Miss Viborg

Directed by: Marianne Blicher

Former beauty queen and now senior citizen Solvej (veteran actor Ragnhild Kaasgaard, masterful in the role) lives with her dog in a social housing area on the outskirts of the provincial Danish town of Viborg. Day after day, when not reminiscing over old love letters from her past, she zips around on her scooter dealing prescription drugs for money, all the while dreaming of an idyllic world that she can escape to someday. When unforeseen circumstances bring Kate, her neighbour’s rebellious 17-year-old daughter, into her life, an unlikely friendship begins to form between these women of different generations. Both feel like outsiders, but together they just might be able to figure their lives out and find a positive path into the future. A hit at the Glasgow Film Festival, Marianne Blicher’s entertaining and observant first feature is a witty, insightful comedy about friendship and the tenacity of hope.
