Country: Sweden
Year: 2010
Genre: Thriller

Awards: Toronto International Film Festival 2010 Cast: Sonja Richter, Jonas Karlsson, Kristoffer Joner

Director: Kristian Petri
Language: Swedish

Premieres 28 April 2013


On her way home from work, Mona finds the victim of a serial killer. She is shocked and scared but the experience triggers something within her. Mona’s fascination becomes an obsession and when the police refuse to believe her, she drops everything to find the killer on her own. Her hunt leads to violent confrontation, not only with the killer but also with herself.

Key Character:

Sonja Richter stars in this movie as Mona, a rather strange young woman who may be in the midst of a nervous breakdown, who walks alone through the streets of Gothenburg. Walking past a sinister alleyway, she sees a badly injured man struggling to breathe. The man has been dispatched by the Bayonet Killer, a murderer who’s been plaguing the city for the last couple of months. Mona is immediately plunged into a mystery only she and the strangely solicitous and philosophical Frank (Jonas Karlsson) seem to care about. As Mona stumbles on one killing after another, she confronts a shady hoodlum (Kristoffer Joyner) who, rather suspiciously, seems to be at the scene of every crime.

Director: Cristina Comencini
Language: Italian

Premieres 14 April 2013


Racial integration is Elena’s profession and passion, not only filling her working days as a cultural mediator assisting immigrants, but spilling over into her home life as well. All too often her daughter and her husband Carlo, must attend evening charity events where they feel distinctly out of place. During one of these evenings, Carlo meets Nadine, a beautiful black woman....

Key Character:

Two years after her Oscar nomination for ‘Don't Tell’, Cristina Comencini has opted for humour rather than melodrama in examining modern problems in her native Italy. ‘Black and White’, her ninth film (and first since the death of her father Luigi, a beacon of Italian cinema), is a contemporary social comedy in the tradition of "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?"

Elena (rising screen star Ambra Angiolini from ‘Saturn in Opposition’) and Carlo (Fabio Volo) seem happily married, if not a little mismatched. Elena comes from a wealthy family and is dedicated to her job at an African aid organization, while husband Carlo, a computer engineer, comes from a more modest background.

One day Carlo meets Nadine (Aissa Maiga, star of many French films including ‘I Do’, ‘Hidden’ and ‘Russian Dolls’), the dissatisfied wife of one of Elena's colleagues (Eriq Ebouaney). Their love at first sight wreaks havoc upon their marriages and, more importantly, brings to light a series of prejudices and clichés from the betrayed spouses.

Defying political correctness, ‘Black and White’ is a comic look at infidelity, bigotry and the possibility or impossibility of racial integration and cross-cultural harmony in Italy.

Genre: Action
Cast: Joel Kinnaman, Matias Varela, Dragomir Mrsic

Premieres 21 April 2013


JW, the promising business student who became an organized coke smuggler, is serving hard time in prison and is struggling to get back to an honest life. But a man from his past – the former hitman Mrado Slovovic - changes everything.

Jorge returns to Sweden to pull off a giant coke deal. But the deal fails terribly and now he has to flee the country with both the police and the Serbian mafia on his tail.

Mahmud owes the Serbian boss, Radovan a large sum of money. When he can´t pay off his debt he is left with only one choice – to find and kill Jorge.

Key Character By now JW (Joel Kinnaman) is tucked away in prison, where he somewhat bizarrely elects to become best pals with Mrado (Dragomir Mrsic), despite their previous differences.

But, having perfected a banking computer system on the inside, JW is gutted to realise on his release that a former pal has sold the system to a company – cutting him out of the deal.

Both penniless and homeless, Kinnaman’s now battle-hardened character elects to head into the criminal underworld again, joining forces with Mrado to wage war on the Serbian kingpins.

Joel Kinnaman started his acting career in 2002. He made his breakthrough in the 2009 film I skuggan av värmen and his success continued with a role in six films of the Johan Falk film series. He was then cast in the film Easy Money (released January 2010), which brought him attention in Sweden and the rest of the world.

Successful TV producer Rainer has it all: big salary, luxurious penthouse, high life, hot car, even hotter girlfriend. The 30-something go-getter has reached the top by creating TV shows of the most stupid and vulgar kind. In his latest hit, a man gets the privilege of fathering a woman's child if his spermatozoid wins a microscopic race to fertilize an ovum!

One day, mysterious young woman Pegah vengefully drives full speed into Rainer's car. After this near-death experience, Rainer has a major change of heart and decides to produce a thought-provoking news show for his station's prime-time lineup.

Devastated by the show's poor ratings, Rainer quits his job and embarks on an investigation of the audience measurement system that keeps intelligence-insulting programs at Number One. Teaming up with the beautiful Pegah and a gang of unemployed social misfits, Rainer sets out to prove that a conspiracy surrounds the boxes used in select households to estimate audience percentage.

Determined to fight television's dumbing down of society, Rainer and his new friends eventually go all the way with an intricate and ingenious plan to get the public interested in quality cultural programs. But the station execs who live off audience hunger for brainless TV are not willing to give up what they have ruthlessly built over the years ...

Moritz Bleibtreu stars as the TV producer, Rainer in this movie.
