belated tv revelation: rita. this danish dramedy has been my latest obsession. the sound of danish brings back memories of living in copenhagen and hits me to the core. the character of rita madsen, who is an amazing teacher to her students and less than amiable with her adult peers, is a compelling, strong female character. netflix was hip to ms. madsen and helped to fund the third season, which already aired in denmark. mille dinesen plays rita with sharp wit that masks an emotionally bottled up woman. funnily, i recently saw dinesen in the movie copenhagen, where she played the lead's mother. i've been travelling down a trip down memory lane since getting access to netflix again. so friends, selv tak!
