Two films saved the local market share in Sweden’s cinemas


- Helena Bergström’s A Holy Mess and Hannes Holm’s A Man Called Ove helped domestic releases to reach 3.4 million admissions

Two films saved the local market share in Sweden’s cinemas
A Holy Mess by Helena Bergström

Last year, Swedish cinemas reached 17 million admissions, almost 5% up on 2014, mainly thanks to US blockbusters: local films sold 3.4 million tickets, 17% less than in 2014, to control 19.9% of the market, according to statistics published by the Swedish Film Institute

It was only a strong December performance by Swedish directors Helena Bergström’s A Holy Mess [+see also:

(which accounted for 18% of all tickets sold by local fare) and Hannes Holm’s A Man Called Ove [+see also:

(which registered a record opening and has now reached one million admissions) that saved the domestic share from a more dramatic decline. Both titles ended up on the list of the top ten films.

Here is the list of Sweden’s top ten films of 2015: Spectre (839,503 admissions), Star Wars – Episode VII: The Force Awakens (829,667 admissions), Minions (668,244 admissions), A Holy Mess (599,211 admissions), Jurassic World (596,004 admissions), Fifty Shades of Grey (524,952 admissions), Inside Out (474,262 admissions), The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 (464,536 admissions), Fast & Furious 7 (439,333 admissions), A Man Called Ove (423,731 admissions).
