Pain of Love (Danish: Kærlighedens Smerte), (1992), is a Danish dramatic tragedy written and directed by Nils Malmros. It stars Anne Louise Hassing and Søren Østergaard in a beautiful but bitter story about a young college student whose small setbacks in school and relationships lead her toward an inexorable descent into suicidal depression.



The film won the 1993 Robert for Best Film and became the only film in Danish cinema to sweep the Bodil Awards with wins for Best Danish Film and for all four acting categories. It was also nominated for the Golden Bear at the 43rd Berlin International Film Festival.[1]
