Plot: From the screenwriter of THE CELEBRATION comes KIRA'S REASON: A LOVE STORY, a Danish Dogme film directed by Ole Christian Madsen. A recovering mental patient, Kira (Stine Stengade) returns home to her husband after a stay in a psychiatric hospital, only to begin a long and difficult adjustment back to her old life. She struggles to accept that her husband had an affair while she was undergoing treatment, a fact that he admits to openly. Jealous rage causes her to have stressful fits and temper tantrums which are quieted by her seemingly patient and loving husband. Though her interest in her children has faded to nothing, she appears to be making progress. Then, in a sudden twist, she goes off the deep end. What ensues is a series of complex, disturbing, violent, and confusing events that break through every notion viewers had about the movie they were watching. A dark and winding tale full of emotional torment and shocking mood swings, KIRA'S REASON shows Madsen's clear expertise with filmmaking. With his starkly depressive characters and uncomfortable photographic techniques, he knows exactly how to evoke an intense reaction from his audience.
