All films have potential, by their very nature they are there to entertain or even inform; some though are baffling to the point of unpleasantness, they do nothing but argue with themselves about their role and like a pair of lovers quarrelling over who last paid for a night out, the position of what could be beautiful is replaced by a dark intrusion and one that brings the film into the arena of the fundamentally objectionable.

The Danish Girl has been a film in the making for so long, that has had so many stars attached to it that it began to feel as though it might never materialise. Yet time has a way of making cinema goers wait for what could be seen as a groundbreaking and informative film, and they don’t come much more groundbreaking than a story about one of the first recorded gender reassignment procedures on record.

There are films in which the abundance of talent on offer simply overwhelms the story line, the procession of acting nobility so engulfing, so crushing, that the film dies a thousand scripted deaths; it never truly lives up to the dignity envisioned off screen and the grace offered in the initial stages of casting. Thankfully this is not the issue when it comes to A Little Chaos.
