Yes, you are right.

She should be a very "positive thinking" person, always taking the bright side of life

I have to agree with you, the hem is just awful. Other than that, she looks great.

I agree about her hair...I bet that's what it looks like naturally. Anyhow, I much prefer her hair in waves, it looks great like that!

Well I think sometimes we have to guess things just having some images to support what we are saying! Most of the time here at Royal Forums we just have some images to support all we are saying, so sometimes we are wrong but other we really can image what they are thinking.....

I don't like the hemline....the top seems nice, but I can't get a clear picture of it.

Thank you Marilla
I am watching it on TV right now; Mary just gave a speech with the reason for donating DKK 250,000.000 to Ventilen - a voluntary organisation which operates meeting places various places in Denmark for young people who are lonely and feel left out.

Actress Sonja Richter received the main prize tonight from the crown prince couple's foundation - half a million Danish kroner.

Sonja Richter played a leading part in Susanne Bier's Open Hearts - the 8th socalled 'Dogme film' - and it was the big break-through for Richter.

Just wondering, how much in euros or dollars are the Danish Kroner? Since I lost my guilders I have little knowledge about the exchange rates.
What kind of movie is it btw, art-house or more polular stuff (or one of these rare combinations)?

DKK 500,000 should be approx. 67,000 euros according to XE.com.

The Open Heart movie? Well it is one of the socalled Dogme movies - the ones that are subjected to 'wows of chastity' or the 10 commandments which dictate use of only hand-held cameras, no use of props, no dubbed sound tracks, no special lightning and effects etc. (there is more about this particular style of movie-making here: Lars and his one-cam cult| Film | This is London)

I liked Open Hearts; it became a big success in Denmark - more so I think than some of Lars von Trier's dogme movies (he is one of the orginators of this concept). I haven't seen all Trier's movies - some of them are too 'arty-farty' for me, I confess

If you want to see a dogme movie I can recommend Open Hearts - and even more Thomas Vinterberg's The Celebration (in Danish: Festen). I still haven't forgotten the impact this movie and it's theme made on me when I watched it for the first time. It is from 1998 - The Celebration - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is surely a movie, I can recommend...even though it´s everything, but easy to "digest"

And to do a TRF comment...I like her dress
Classy black is never bad...esp. not on TV screen...

Definitely not easy to digest!
It has been turned into a theater play now by the way - 20.000 vil se Festen i teatret - Worldnews.com - apparently the play had already sold 20,000 tickets by the time rehearsals started - not bad

I don't think commenting on the clothes of royals is a characteristic for TRF only, I have seen it at all royalty forums and message boards I know, apart from the Alexanderpalace forum that has another focus (Romanovs mainly). But as long as we can find a balance between discussing the purpose and the clothes it isn't a problem IMHO.

Thanks for the comments and explanation about the movie (you and UserDene), I think I will have time to look for it tomorrow, there is one of these alternative (anything non-anglo-saxon is considered alternative here) moviecenters where they might have it close to my university.

What is the idea behind the prize? Can the actress keep the 67.000 euros for herself or does it have a (usefull) catch to it? They have to use it for a certain course, master class etc.

Yes I think she can spend the money any way she likes. Here is a link to the origin of the price Kronprinsparrets kulturpris (it's basis is a wedding gift to F&M).

Mary looks nice - but her hair is in that "in between" stage where it is neither long nor short, I wish it would hurry up and grow!

About the Prize, is the prize money a fixed amount every year or does it change?

It is only the 3rd time the prize is handed out, but as far as I know it has been the same amount each time.

Thank you for the pictures
