Das Löwenmädchen

Feature Film | NO, DE, SE 2015 | 126’ | OV with German subs

In a small town in rural Norway in winter 1912, a small girl is born whose body is completely covered by blond small hair. For academics of that time, Eva is an interesting, curios case. Her mother dies in childbirth and her father, station master Arctander, initially disowns »the lion woman«. Still, little Eva grows up. Isolated and hidden from the curiosity of the outside world, Eva imagines her own world until one day, she works up the courage to escape her life’s limitations.
