SuperClasico

A love story about the passion for football, tango and wine according to director Ole Christian Madsen. From "Superclásico", photo by Shazia Khan.

Ole Christian Madsen's divorce comedy "Superclásico" met with giggles and laughs from the audience, and an enthusiastic crowd attended the Q&A after the screening on Sunday at the Busan International Film Festival, running through to 14 October.

The screening at Busan, the most important festival venue and market event in East Asia, marks the film's Asian premiere and is but one of this fall's festival showings for Danish Oscar candidate "Superclásico" with Anders W. Berthelsen and Paprika Steen as a couple trying to settle a divorce in Buenos Aires.

Also selected for this 16th edition of the Busan festival are "The Great Bear" by Esben Toft Jacobsen and von Trier's "Melancholia".
