The trailer for Ehrengard: The Art of Seduction looks amusing.

The film, starring Sidse Babett Knudsen (Borgen, 1864) and Mikkel Boe Følsgaard (The Chestnut Man, The Rain), is based on the novel Ehrengard by famed Danish author Karen Blixen (Out of Africa), who published it under the pen name of Isak Dinesen.

The cast also includes Alice Esther Bier Zandén (The Night Manager), Emilie Koppel (Unruly), Sara-Marie Maltha (The Killing), Jacob Lohmann (When the Dust Settles), and Emil Aron Dorph (A Matter of Trust).

Set in the fairy tale kingdom of Babenhausen, Ehrengard: The Art of Seduction sees the scheming Grand Duchess (Sidse Barbett Knudsen) hire Mr. Cazotte (Mikkel Boe Følsgaard), a young, self-appointed expert on love, to help her secure an heir. While searching for a suitable future Princess, Mr. Cazotte teaches the timid and introverted Crown Prince Lothar (Emil Aron Dorph) the art of seduction and lovemaking.

But their plan soon backfires, when an heir is conceived out of wedlock and the royal family has to seek refuge in the castle of Rosenbad. Here, as rivals within the royal family close in on their scheme, Cazotte himself falls in love with Ehrengard (Alice Esther Bier Zandén), the maid of honor, and gradually learns that, in fact, he’s no expert on love at all.

Ehrengard: The Art of Seduction, a Netflix Film, premieres globally on Thursday, September 14, exclusively on Netflix. You can set a reminder for it now at www.netflix.com/ehrengard.

Directed by Academy Award®, Golden Globe, and two-time Palme d’Or winner Bille August (Pelle the Conqueror, The Best Intentions), Ehrengard: The Art of Seduction features set design and costumes by Queen Margrethe II, an honorary member of the Association of Danish Scenographers. The film is written by head writer Anders August (A Fortunate Man, Follow the Money), produced by Marcella Dichmann for SF Studios (Loving Adults, The Exception), co-produced by Jacob Jørgensen for JJ Film, and executive produced by Lars Bjørn Hansen and Tim King for SF Studios.
