Steen, 'Truth,' 'Dina' also multiple winners

COPENHAGEN — Helmer Susanne Bier’s “Open Hearts,” Denmark’s submission for Foreign-Language Oscar nomination, swept five Danish Film Academy awards in Copenhagen on Sunday evening.

A Zentropa Entertainments production, “Open Hearts” won Robert statuettes for film, supporting actor (Nikolaj Lie Kaas), supporting actress (Paprika Steen), editing (Pernille Bech Christiansen, Thomas Krag), and the audience award.

Steen also took actress honors for Jesper W. Nielsen’s “Okay,” the first time in the Roberts’ 20-year history that one thesp has won in both categories.

Nils Malmros’ “Facing the Truth,” from Nordisk Film Production, won for director, original screenplay (Malmros, John Mogensen) and actor (Jens Albinus).

Scandinavia’s most expensive feature, the Norwegian production of Danish director Ole Bornedal’s “I Am Dina,” bagged five prizes for cinematography (Dan Lausten), set design (Steffen Aarfing, Marie I’Dali), costume design (Dominique Borg), make-up (June Paalgaard, Elisabeth Bukkehave), and sound design (Michela Dela, Nino Jacobsen).

Hans Fabian Wullenweber’s “Catch That Girl” was best family film, while Robert Altman’s “Gosford Park” won U.S. feature, and French director Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s “Amelie” added best non-U.S. feature to its string of international acknowledgements.
