‘White Night’ shines in Bodils race

'Art of Crying' follows close behind

STOCKHOLM — Jannik Johansen’s meller “White Night” leads the race for Denmark’s top awards, the Bodils, which are bestowed by the country’s critics’ association.

Pic took nominations in all five categories, including a lead actor nom for Lars Brygmann, who plays a real estate agent attempting to make amends for the accidental death of a man in a bar-room brawl.

Peter Schonau Fog’s “The Art of Crying,” a black comedy about an abusive father in a morally retarded Jutland community, was close behind with four noms.

Natasha Arthy’s sophomore pic “Fighter,” about a girl determined to train as a kung fu fighter against the wishes of her Turkish parents, took three nominations.

Statuettes will be handed out at Copenhagen’s Imperial Cinema on Feb. 24.
