Niels Arden Oplev and Nordisk Film are filming for their new drama, 'Rose', from a script by the director. Shooting has started in the mainland of Jutland and will also include a short detour to Paris.
'Rose' takes place over a week in the autumn of 1997. With the two sisters Inger and Ellen at the forefront, the story revolves around a group of tourists travelling by bus from the northern provincial part of Denmark to the city of cities, Paris. "A film about caring for each other despite our differences," says Niels Arden Oplev in a press release.
Sofie Gråbøl and Lene Maria Christensen play the two sisters, and on the cast are also Anders W. Berthelsen, Søren Malling and Peter Gantzler, among others.
Niels Arden Oplev has a number of Danish films and TV series under his belt, most recently 'Daniel' (2019), 'Speedwalking' (2014), 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' (2009), 'Worlds Apart' (2008) and 'We Shall Overcome' (2006). For the past ten years, Arden Oplev has primarily worked abroad, writing, directing and producing international films and TV series.
Thomas Heinesen is producing 'Rose' for Nordisk Film with support from the Danish Film Institute, the West Danish Film Fund, Eurimages and Creative Europe Media Slate.
'Rose' is expected to premiere in the late summer of 2021.
