‘Journey’ tops Bugs

Einhor's debut takes pic, script, aud nods

STOCKHOLM — Lena Einhor’s debut feature “Nina’s Journey” won pic and script kudos at Sweden’s premier film awards, the Golden Bugs, Monday, as well as the audience award.

Produced by Kaska Krosny of East & West Film, pic is a docudrama about Einhorn’s mother, a Holocaust survivor.

Handed out at the close of the Goteborg Film Festival, the prizes were evenly distribbed, with 10 different pics collecting gongs in 13 categories.

Front-runner “Mouth to Mouth” faltered at the final fence. Helmer Bjorn Runge’s drama went into the race with seven nominations but received only one award, with Magnus Krepper winning supporting actor.

Ulf Malmros received the helmer’s award for drama “God Save the King.” Best actress was Maria Lundqvist (“Mother of Mine”) and actor was Krister Henriksson (“Sex, Hope & Love”).

Josef Fares’ semi-autobiographical drama “Zozo” won two kudos: Aril Wretblad for cinematography and Adam Norden for sound.

Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne’s Palme d’Or winner “The Child” won the award for foreign language film.
