Article excerpt

Ruben Östlund's family drama leads the pack with six Guldbagge Awards.

Ruben Östlund's Force Majeure (Turist) may have missed out on the shortlist for the Best Foreign Language Academy Award but it cleaned up at last night's Swedish Oscars - the Guldbagge Awards.

The ceremony, held by the Swedish Film Institute at Cirkus in Stockholm, saw Östlund's family drama pick up six Guldbagge (Golden Beetle) prizes including best film, director, supporting actor, screenplay, cinematography and editing.

The Sweden-France-Norway co-production debuted at Cannes 2014 and centres on a family who come under strain after staring down an avalanche in the French Alps.Guldbagge Awards 2015
