Olesen, duo partners in ‘Crimes’

Pic one of four backed by Danish Film Institute

COPENHAGEN — Danish director Annette K. Olesen, whose Dogma debut “Minor Mishaps” won the Blue Angel at this year’s Berlin Intl. Film Festival, will reunite with scriptwriter Kim Fupz Aakeson and producer Ib Tardini for “Crimes” for Zentropa Entertainments.

Danish pubcaster DR-TV and Egmont will contribute to the $1.4 million budget. The film is one of four which the Danish Film Institute approved for public subsidy on Monday.

Norwegian-Swedish actress Maria Bonnevie (“I Am Dina”) will star in Christoffer Boe’s first feature, “Reconstruction,” described as a surrealistic love story. Nordisk Film Production will produce; national broadcaster TV2/Danmark and Swedish pubcaster SVT will chip in on $1.3 million budget.

Also a feature debut, Malene Vilstrup’s children’s film,”The Ghost Horse”, is co-written by Hans Hansen, who will produce for Zentropa Entertainments. It focuses on two lonely girls and their love of a horse, Black Boy.

Credited for several episodes of DR-TV’s series, “Unit One,” Jannik Johansen will helm his first feature for Mellow Productions in collaboration with U.K.’s The Works. The $2.4 million “Rembrandt” follows a strained father-son relationship, and has attracted finance from Egmont and DR-TV.
