Danish Girl carbon copy
4 October 2020 | by selvadorada300See all my reviews

This is almost the same movie as Danish Girl (2015) but without the transgender arc. Here, Paul (Pierre Deladonchamps) is a coward deserter who leaves the battlefield and dress as a woman to hide from authorities.

Golden Years just keep me reminding of Danish Girl with Eddie Redmayne, it is very similar and seems deja vu watching the two movies. Even the actors of two movies looks identical - in and out of drag.
