Next up this award season is Michael Noer and Tobias Lindholm's 'R', which has just won two awards at the Gothenburg; the Dragon Prize for best Nordic film as well as the FIPRESCI Award from the International Federations of Film Critics. Topping it off was a nomination in Rotterdam for the VPRO Tiger Awards competition. This is what DFI has to say about it:
"This hard-hitting drama, an anthropological study of life in a Danish prison, portrays R who has been sentenced to prison for violence. He's insistent on staying out of harm's way and in doing so he is faced with the challenge of navigating through prison culture with its notions of honour, hidden agendas and contracts."
Michael is one of our favourites at ArtCast so we're really pleased for all his successes. Here's the trailer. Tuff.
