In what has been called a lacklustre Swedish film year, the clearest beacon of light in 2019 was surely provided by Levan Akin (Certain People, The Circle [+lire aussi :
fiche film]) in his heartfelt tale of a forbidden romance between two male dancers in the conservative Georgian dance community, And Then We Danced [+lire aussi :
interview : Levan Akin
interview : Levan Gelbakhiani
fiche film]. It opened in the Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, became Sweden’s submission for the 92nd Academy Awards for Best International Feature Film and has now been sold to nearly 40 territories. The co-production between Sweden’s Mathilde Dedye and Georgia’s Ketie Danelia, with additional co-production by Julien Féret, picked up the Guldbagge Awards for Best Film, Best Lead Actor (for Levan Gelbakhiani), Best Script (Akin) and Best Cinematography (Lisabi Fridell). Last week, it was awarded the Greta, the annual award handed out by the Swedish Film Critic Association.
Another four prizes were, perhaps more surprisingly, won by Aniara [+lire aussi :
fiche film], Pella Kågerman and Hugo Lilja’s adaptation of Swedish Nobel Prize laureate Harry Martinson’s poetic science-fiction epic from 1956, which was awarded Best Director, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress (Emelie Garbers and Bianca Cruziero), plus Best Visual Effects (Andreas Wicklund, Per Jonsson and Arild Andersson).
Somewhat short-changed in the process were main contenders Mikael Håfström’s true-crime drama The Perfect Patient [+lire aussi :
fiche film] and Roy Andersson’s Venice-awarded About Endlessness [+lire aussi :

fiche film]; the former did receive a predicted Best Supporting Actor Award for David Dencik in the title role, while there was never any doubt that the Andersson posse would get the Best Set Design Award, shared by Anders Hellström, Frida Ekstrand Elmström and Nicklas Nilsson.
Another successful prediction was the Best Documentary Award for Anna Eborn’s gorgeous, 16mm-shot Transnistra [+lire aussi :
fiche film], while two 2019 festival favourites, John Skoog’s Ridge [+lire aussi :
fiche film] and Johannes Nyholm’s Koko-di Koko-da [+lire aussi :

fiche film], were both entirely and curiously overlooked.
