film profile] are going to attend Robert Redford’s Sundance Film Festival in Utah (19-29 January, 2006), the first as one of the 16 films selected in the World Cinema Dramatic Competition, and the second among the 24 films in the Spectrum Programme.
Allegro is the second feature film by Boe, described as one of the most promising revelations of Nordic cinema when he won the Camera d’or in Cannes 2003 for his directorial debut Reconstruction. Allegro starring super model Helena Christensen and Ulrich Thomsen, was previously selected at Venice Days last September. The film produced by Tine Grew Pfeiffer for Alphaville Pictures, is sold internationally by Celluloid Dreams.
Adam’s Apples by successful writer/director Anders Thomas Jensen is the Danish submission for this year’s Oscars nominations in the Best foreign language film category. The black comedy which has sold some 360,000 tickets in Denmark, is produced by M&M Productions and sold internationally by Nordisk Film International Sales.
Last year, Susanne Bier’s Brothers [+see also:
