Denmark's Dogme films this week chalked up another popular success in their home market.
After the success of Berlin Silver Bear-winning Italian For Beginners,Ake Sandgren's Truly Human (Et Rigtigt Menneske) opened this week on just 14 prints with an impressive screen average of 840 admissions. That performance put it second in the charts behind Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts-starrer The Mexican, which on 40 prints achieved a screen average of 731.
Last weeks number one Dude, Where's My Car' dropped 43% to fourth place after Sandra Bullock's stable Miss Congeniality remaining in third spot with a running total of 81,000 admissions after 4 weeks.
Truly Human, which will have its international premiere in Cannes, had very positive reviews from local critics and scooped 12,500 admissions in its first week. Among the other local films on release, Bille August's A Song For Martin is still in the top 10 after 6 weeks, and though it is not considered a major success with 86,000 admissions, it has fared better than Soren Fauli's historic comedy Count Axel, which scored 55,000 admissions after four weeks.
Per Fly's multiple award-winning The Bench looks to set new records for longevity; after 27 weeks on release it is number 10 spot, followed by Italian For Beginners on 12th passing 835,000 admissions so far.
