In Dansen, Scandinavian filmmaker Pernille Fischer Christensen continues her multi-film preoccupation with distraught female characters who get misled by their out-of-control emotions and land in relationships with ill-advised romantic partners. The character in question, on this occasion, is Annika (Trine Dyrholm) - a physically desirable young woman employed as an instructor at a dance school run by her family. In time, Annika falls into a relationship with Lasse, a quiet and emotionally incommunicative electrician whom she finds rather devastating. He eventually makes two disturbing admissions regarding his own life: disclosures of a lengthy prison sentence and an "unjust" conviction as a rapist. Annika chooses to overlook this and finds some limited happiness with Lasse, but in time she senses that there may be even more to his past than he has confessed to her - and a disturbing level of impulsivity arises from Lasse that makes Annika feel decidedly ill-at-ease.
