Louder Than Bombs continues to make noise in the film world, racking up a total of four awards at the close of the Norwegian International Film Festival in Haugesund, Norway last night!
Louder than Bombs became the evening’s most-winning film with four awards, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography and Best Editing.
These awards are called the Amandas. Let’s add some names, shall we?
Best Cinematography: Jakob Ihre – Louder Than Bombs
Best Screenplay: Eskil Vogt and Joachim Trier – Louder Than Bombs
Best Editing: Olivier Bugge Coutté – Louder Than Bombs
and last but not least
Best Director: Joachim Trier – Louder Than Bombs
An interesting tidbit: I cannot find Louder Than Bombs on the list of films shown at this year’s festival. If you can locate it, let me know!
Norwegian director Joachim Trier’s “Louder than Bombs,” which in 2015 was Norway’s first Cannes Competition entry in 36 years, won four Norwegian national film prizes, dubbed the Amandas, Aug. 26 on the closing night of the 44th Norwegian International Film Festival in Haugesund, Norway.
Trier’s third feature, and first English-language pic, starred an international cast: Gabriel Byrne, Isabelle Huppert, Jesse Eisenberg, and Devin Druid. It won director, original screenplay (Eskil Vogt, Trier), cinematography (Jakob Ihre) and editing (Olivier Bugge Coutté) prizes. Next month the writer-dirctor will start principal photography for “Thelma,” a supernatural thriller, also co-scripted by Vogt and produced by Thomas Robsahm for Motlys.
Montages reports on the awards, too. The article is in Norwegian.
The trailer will be a good reminder of the artistic achievement of these inspired film makers:
Congratulations to all of the winners!
