, has been nominated for 13 Guldbagge Awards, the Swedish national film prize – the highest number of nominations in the 51-year history of the award.

Starring David DencikRuth Vega FernandezSverrir Gudnason and David Fukamachi Rengfors, the adaptation of Swedish author Klas Östergren’s 1980 novel is set in post-World War Two Stockholm, complete with jazz music, poetry, hidden treasures and espionage. It opened last year’s Stockholm International Film Festival and later enjoyed a Special Presentation – dedicated to ”high-profile premieres from the world’s leading filmmakers” – at Toronto. 

Released domestically on 5 December 2014 by Svensk Filmindustri, Gentlemen has been licensed to, among others, Magnolia Pictures for North America, Artificial Eye for the UK and Lumière for Benelux, through Paris-based Wild Bunch. “Hopefully, the many nominations will encourage even more Swedes to watch the film on the big screen,” said Marcimain.

The possible recipients of the Guldbagge Awards, which were instigated by the Swedish Film Institute, are nominated in a secret ballot by a 45-strong jury, which decided that Ruben Östlund’s Force Majeure [+see also:
