He is desperate to have every to himself. Franz never offers a substantial sign of love, but is willing to tell anything and create any promise for affection. His dependence on girls for fulfilment is explained through arguments with his wife. He claims "I am my own sound. The girls produce voices within me." An understandable and sometimes sympathetic antagonist is one of the movies best strengths. The emotional hurt he causes becomes believable.

Daisy Diamond Reviews:

The movie opens up with a several shots of Anna Norberg's face then moves up to her boyfriend shooting up heroin in an alley. When she says him she has cash to go to Copenhagen to become an actress, he turns nasty when she won't give him the cash for more heroin and then proceeds to rape her. A baby cries and someone complains about it, revealing that the two young folks are actors auditioning for a movie. The judges then say Anna that they will go for someone else for the part. What follows is a harrowing descent into a nightmare that ends in tragic consequences. Anna's baby, Daisy, cries non stop (several times, the baby stares at Anna when she isn't crying, probably longing for a love that she will never get) and Anna repeatedly chastises her, sometimes wishing she were never born, another times displaying loving affection for her, and mostly complaining about her constant crying. Time after time, Anna auditions for parts to help her baby, all of them reflecting her possible life story, and she is rejected, either because of the baby, her inability to remember lines, or that she simply isn't right for the part. This leads to an unforgivable act, long suspected that it would happen. After making a cameo in a movie which portrays the horrifying crime she committed, she then turns to prostitution and works in the porn industry. It's an intense, depressing and heart-wrenching piece of filming that's not simple to watch. However, it's definitely worth it to see the brilliant determination and commitment that Noomi Rapace gives to her performance as Anna. I trust it's precisely that type of fearlessness that won her the role of Lisbeth Salander in the Millennium movie series. She's too powerful an actress to be kept in the dark and I'm glad she's managed break into Hollywood.


"Daisy Diamond" is not a feel-good film. Each minute of the movie almost feels like torture. No wonder it sold less than 3000 tickets in Denmark. Why bother to see it then? I will receive back to that. Anna, a young Swedish actress comes to Copenhagen to pursue an acting career. With her she brings her newborn child. However, there is absolutely no close bond between mother and child. The baby is constantly crying(is it missing motherly love?)and the crying and Anna's lack of sleep gradually drives her to a desperate act. She constantly goes to castings and job interviews, but everywhere she is rejected. No wonder that she gradually loses self respect. Driven by guilt and self-hatred Anna, under the pseudonym Daisy Diamond, goes into the porn movie industry, where the jobs become more and more degrading and humiliating. Finally she is ready to take the ultimate step. The movie is highly critical in its portrayal of the film- and theater world. Each person seems to be cold , calculated, and ready to exploit others. The actor is seen like a prostitute, who has to offer her innermost personal feelings to the camera. Perhaps Anna feels a type of relief to receive into the porn industry,because here she only has to sell her body, not her soul. Sometimes it's not possible to know when Anna is acting or just is being her true self. In long monologues Anna talks about her innermost thoughts and feelings to the camera, but these scenes are often reflected by scenes, which she has to enjoy at the castings. The movie has few references to Ingmar Bergman, one of Staho's nice mentors. On two opportunities Daisy is watching Bergman's "Persona" and is moved to tears. Also the Danish director Dreyer and his movie about Joan of Arch, other female martyr, lurks behind Anna. Like Dreyer (and Bergman) Staho is frequently making test of close ups of of his female character. Other Danish director, Lars Von Trier, who is almost obsessed by female victims and martyrs, comes to your mind. So, why bother to see this gloomy film? Because it is nice art, and because Nomi Rapache is brilliant as Anna.


Director Simon Staho's Danish movie "Daily Diamond" is one movie whose meaning can be easy summed up in a single, long sentence. However, as it talks about things which mean a lot in our everyday lives, the problems it raises and their repercussions on folks would be felt for a very long time. Although it has a tiny baby woman as one of its protagonists, it is not at all a family movie due to its excessive reliance on nude scenes and violence which border on a mild form of quasi perverse pornography. Actress Noomi Rapace is excellent in her role of a Swedish woman who does not crack in a harsh Danish cinema industry where casting couch is rampant and most folks associated with cinema business offer gratis tip while revealing their philosophical thoughts about acting business. Their hypocrisy is revealed when it transpires that these are the very folks who don't hesitate in giving "share my bed if you wish a role of your life" kind invitations to struggling actors. The movie does not stop at all in asking a pertinent question: which 'real actor' can survive in a harsh cinematographic milieu where talent takes a back seat ? As far as watching this movie is concerned, there is a minor warning for viewers who are working mothers. Although this movie depicts the tragic plight and issues of a working mother, it fails to offer a plausible solution.This leads us to ask whether it is ethical to have a kid when the mother is not at all in a position to raise it. Lastly, the true star of this movie is a 4 month old baby woman whose life is snuffed out too later by her mother who would like to create it large in the phony globe of cinema.
