| The Daughter: why would you call your daughter 'Hedvig'?
Henrik Ibsen has been a great Scandinavian playwright, very well known until the 80s in most Western Countries. Currently his (great) works are played less often and the man is less known.

So I won't be surprised if someone watched the present film unaware that its beautiful plot was taken from one of his masterpieces: 'Vildanden', published more than a Century ago.

The young Simon Stone showed a great deal of talent and very good taste in changing the story to make it more interesting and fitting with modern times (and Australia). Until I heard the name 'Hedvig' (only name left unchanged from the original play, a nice touch…) I didn't recognize the source.

He made a very clever choice: on a soundest plot he built a catching movie, full of passion and realism, enhanced by great performances.

I won't tell anything about the changes he made: for those who know the original, you won't know if the ending is changed. For the others: enjoy.
