THE BEAST OF BEAUTY
, 2003, 87 min, color

Lotte, who is eight or nine years old, and her father Helge, who is the Queen's bodyguard, move in with Kristin, a former beauty queen, and her daughter Vendela. Kristin is extremely preoccupied with bodies and appearances, and she tries to pass this fixation on to Vendela, and by-and-by to Lotte as well. Kristins ambition is that Vendela win the title of Little Miss Norway at a childrens beauty contest. This is a fairy tale movie in a Roald Dahl setting, with elements from horror movies.
