She Monkeys wins best film at Sweden's Golden Bug awards

Ruben Oslund wins best director for Play.

Lisa Aschan’s festival hit She Monkeys won the award for best film when the annual Swedish Golden Bug awards (Guldbagge) were handed out in Stockholm Monday night.

The provocative film about the relationship between two young girls also won the awards for best script and best sound. Ruben Ostlund’s Play won the award for best director.

Lisa Ohlin’s Simon and the Oaks, which will make its international debut at the Berlinale in February, walked away with just two awards despite having had 13 nominations.

The Swedish Film Institute this year had listened to repeated demands that the number of awards should increase in order to recognise more people working behind the camera.
