Directed by Rune Schjøtt, Skyscraper is a poetic coming-of-age story with touches of black humour, about a teenager who falls in love with a blind girl. The film is produced by Fine & Mellow (Terribly Happy [+see also:

).

Produced by Zentropa, Heidi Faisst’s (The Blessing) sophomore feature Rebounce explores a difficult mother-daughter relationship.

David MacKenzie’s Perfect Sense was rolled out Sundance’s Premieres section and acquired for North America by IFC Films. The futuristic love story written by Kim Fupz Aakeson stars Ewan MacGregor and Eva Green.

Anne Sewitsky’s Norwegian film Happy Happy, winner of the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize in Sundance, was one of the most popular films at the recent Nordic Film Market in Göteborg and several deals will most likely be closed in Berlin. The film tackles infidelity in an unusually light tone, and is a pleasant and fresh marital farce for adult audiences.

Also screening at the market are Lisa Langseth’s debut film Pure, a story of seduction and revenge that revealed this year’s Sweden’s Shooting Star Alicia Vikander, and Jørgen Lerdal’s The Olsen Gang Gets Polished which sold over 335,000 tickets in Denmark.

TrustNordisk’s sales team is also continuing discussions on Lars von Trier’s Melancholia (most likely a Cannes 2011 entry) and the Norwegian/Danish thriller Headhunters by Morten Tyldum.
