GREAT DANES

Danish cinema’s highest-budgeted film ever, the $9 million “Flame and Citron,” from Ole Christian Madsen, turns on two Danish resistance heroes during Nazi occupation. “Flame” racked up strong international sales for the Match Factory. Also from Denmark: Henric Ruben Genz’s postmodern genre-bending “Terribly Happy,” a black comic thriller that took Karlovy Vary’s Crystal Globe, with Trust-Nordisk snapping up international.
