Principles of Attraction

Birgitte Stærmose, Denmark, 2006

47 min.DK/Short fiction

Four stories, taking place on the same day on or around Copenhagen's Istedgade, paint a lyrical portrait of the city and four distinct women: flaky Emma who desperately wants to please her boyfriend, timid Ida who shies away from love, ravenous Nadia who reaches for the stars and pregnant Sophie who feels out of touch with herself.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
