The EU Film Festival is coming up (http://eufilmfestival.com/) and there are some big names in the line-up!
There are three award-winning Vancouver Premiere Scandinavian films in the festival this year:
Sweden: Johan Kling’s Darling on Friday, November 27 – 7:00 pm. Darling won Swedish Oscars for Best Actor (Segerström) and Cinematography, and was awarded the Swedish film critics’ prize for best Swedish feature of 2007. “An elegant picture . . . With an ace performance by newcomer Michelle Meadows, Darling, a dark comedy about morals and manners in Stockholm, should entrance audiences . . . Meadows is a joy to behold” (Gunnar Rehlin, Variety). http://eufilmfestival.com/night01_09.htm#sweden
Denmark: Natasha Arthy’s Fighter on Sunday, November 29 – 6:30pm. “A fresh spin on cross-cultural romance . . . Boasts an appealingly feisty heroine and high-energy martial arts action . . . The first Danish action film to employ international stunt and wire specialists” (Alissa Simon, Variety). http://eufilmfestival.com/night03_09.htm#denmark
