Highly anticipated Danish fantasy The Shamer's Daughter hits Nordic screens in March with a heap of expectations upon the Anders Thomas Jensen scripted adaptation of Lene Kaaberbol's hugely popular young adult fantasy novels. Will this be some sort of regional response to the runaway success of The Hunger Games? A region that takes its youth cinema very seriously certainly hopes so.
The Shamer's daughter, Dina, has unwillingly inherited her mother's
supernatural ability. She can look straight into the soul of other
people, making them feel ashamed of themselves. When the sole heir to
the throne is wrongfully accused of the horrible murders of his family,
Dina's mother is lured to Dunark under false pretenses to make him
confess. Neglecting to use her ability for the wrong purposes, she is
taken prisoner. It is now up to Dina to uncover the truth of the
murders, but soon she finds herself whirled into a dangerous power
struggle with her own life at risk.
A minute long teaser for the film arrived online back in November and that has now been followed by the full theatrical trailer. Check it out below.
