Submarino wins Critics Award Haugesund

FESTIVAL. Thomas Vinterberg and Nimbus Film's 'Submarino' received the Critics' Award today at the Norwegian film festival in Haugesund.

Today at the Haugesund film festival, Thomas Vinterberg's 'Submarino' was honoured with the Critic's Award.

The Jury's motivation:

'Submarino' "uses a film language that although raw, has a purity and confidence in its form. In choosing a very deliberate structure, the director makes it impossible to ignore the fates of the characters depicted. The portrayal of deplorable human circumstances is also a gesture of great humanism. The actors deliver remarkable and powerful performances. The film is complete in form, while also giving a mindblowing punch.

'Submarino' is one of the five Nordic films nominated for a Nordic Film Prize 2010 and one of three films on the DFI-appointed Oscar-committee's shortlist.

The film was released in Denmark to enthusiastic reviews in March, and sales have been sealed for a number of European countries, as well as territories in Asia and South America.
