Because Venus Passed an Alp Violet on the Day I Was Born
In a hotel, high up in a mountain village, two sisters in their early twenties will spend a few winter weeks in peaceful surroundings. Martha has just been discharged from a sanatorium after a nervous breakdown, and Ella follows her to take care of her. But at the hotel, secret encounters take place and new fascinations arise. Through Ella’s confidential story, we get a look into the underlying conflicts that have led the two women away from what once was a relationship based on mutual trust and devotion.
Mona Høvring writes with impressive insight about love and confusion. Because Venus Passed an Alp Violet on the Day I Was Born is a sharp, sensitive story about jealousy and passion, an original and surprising story about the many distractions of the heart.
