    Scandinavian Film Festival 2015

    Festival Dates: 9 July, 2015 - 26 July, 2015
    Participating Cinemas: Palace Cinema Como, Palace Brighton Bay

    Tickets on sale 10th JUNE

    After the stunning success of the debut Scandinavian Film Festival last year, the 2015 program, presented by Palace and screening exclusively at Palace Cinema locations in July, will showcase the most exciting dramas, comedies and thrillers from Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland.

    Here is your first taste of the Nordic film feast, which opens from 8 July nationally.
    The second Scandinavian Film Festival will open with the uproarious HERE IS HAROLD (Her er Harold), a Norwegian road movie, about a man who sets out to kidnap the founder of Ikea. For over 40 years, Harold has been running a successful business, "Lunde Furniture". But this comes to an end when IKEA decides to open a new superstore right next door to his small furniture shop. In mounting anger and desperation, Harold wants revenge. He arms himself with a pistol and sets off for Älmhult, Sweden, in order to kidnap his Nemesis - the founder of IKEA, Ingvar Kamprad. But unfortunately, Kamprad is quite happy to be kidnapped.
    Other highlights include the multi-award-winning Icelandic drama LIFE IN A FISHBOWL(Vonarstræti); critically acclaimed Swedish-Norwegian production UNDERDOG (Svenskjävel); Finnish comedy THE GRUMP (Mielensäpahoittaja); the follow-up to last year’s festival smash-hit (THE KEEPER OF LOST CAUSES) THE ABSENT ONE (Fasandræberne); the wry and humorous OUT OF NATURE (Mot nature); and Amanda Adolfsson’s longed for dreamy debut YOUNG SOPHIE BELL (Unga Sophie Bell).
    Screening at Palace Cinema Como and Brighton Bay from July 9.
