Danish helmer opens his ‘World’ to Netizens

Elmer soliciting 'Mona's' opinions on the Web

COPENHAGEN — Danish director Jonas Elmer, whose 1997 feature debut “Let’s Get Lost” earned Denmark’s top film prizes — the Bodil and the Robert — is using the Internet to gather audience suggestions for the script of his next film, “Mona’s World,” scheduled to start principal photography Aug. 21.

As the film was announced in Copenhagen last week, Elmer launched a Web site, www.monasverden.tv2.dk, where Netizens can contribute to the dialogue and plot. The site registered 12,000 log-ons in its first 24 hours.

A discovery of former producer Per Holst (now creative director of Nordisk Film), Elmer received public support for “Let’s Get Lost” — which began life as a novella.

“Mona’s World” will star Sidse Babett Knudsen as a woman with a strong imagination whose life is slightly out of joint until she meets a rather untalented bank robber.

Cast also includes Thomas Bo Larsen, Bjarne Henriksen, Jesper Asholt and Bodil Udsen.

Nordisk Film Biografdistribution plans to release the pic in September 2001.
