In addition to Nicolas Winding Refn's Only God Forgives, selected for Competition, and Gudmundur Arnar Gudmundsso's Whale Valley, selected for the Short Film Competition, two Danish minor co-productions are in the Cannes lineup: Borgman by Alex van Warmerdam is selected for Competition, and Solecito by Oscar Ruiz Navia for Director's Fortnight.

The Devil comes to visit

Dutch auteur Alex von Warmerdam's Borgman is a dark, malevolent fable in which the central character Camiel Borgman arrives in the sealed-off streets of modern suburbia. Is he a dream, a demon, a twisted allegory, or an all-too-real embodiment of our fears? Whatever the case, his presence unleashes a crowing gallery of distortion around the careful façade constructed by an arrogant, comfortable couple, their three children and nanny.

Borgman is a Dutch-Belgian-Danish co-production between Graniet Films, Epidemic and Angel Films. Danish co-producers are Tine Mosegaard and Mogens Glad. Danish actors Sara Hjort and Benjamin Boe Rasmussen are on the cast list, and Stine Gudmundsen-Holmgren has designed the costumes. 

Olafur Elisasson shines in Cannes

Solecito by the Colombian director Oscar Ruiz Navia is one of 16 short films made in response to an invitation from the Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson and the Danish producer Tine Fischer to create a film about light, life, energy, and Eliasson's Little Sun solarpowered lamp.

Set in a Colombian suburb, Solecito weaves together a story of love, light, and energy as it follows a young couple through a unique space existing between fiction and non-fiction.

Solecito is a Colombian-Danish-French co-production between Contravia Films, Burning Blue, Fischer Film and Arizona Productions.
