Stockholm Awards Top Prize to 'Louder Than Bombs'

Article excerpt

The Stockholm International Film Festival awarded its Bronze Horse award for best film to Joachim Trier's Louder Than Bombs.

The jury – comprised of producer Mimmi Spång, director Peter Grönlund, director Christian Zübert, director Di Phan Dang, and director Arab Nasser – said the film was an "aesthetic masterpiece, a film that innovatively uses all cinematic components to move freely between present, past, dream and imagination. With this tightly woven family drama, the director gradually patches together our broken inner places and makes us visible to ourselves – and to each other."
