After a couple of uneventful weeks at the Danish box-office, Jannik Johansen's Stealing Rembrandt lived up to its high expectations and brought life back to the box-office.

A solid if not quite spectacular 28,821 admissions on 67 prints, easily secured it the top spot in front of Dreamworks' Sinbad: Legend Of The Seven Seas, which sold 21,181 tickets on 65 prints.

Overall the weekend was still down some 38% from last year, but the local success, which received favourable reviews, brought the weekend up 10% week-on-week.

A comedy-drama, Stealing Rembrandt is inspired by the real theft of two precious paintings in 1999, when petty thieves accidentally stole a Rembrandt, a case that was brought to conclusion only weeks before the release of the film. It features an all-star cast of Danish talent including Lars Brygmann, Jacob Cedergren, Nicolas Bro, Nikolaj Coster Waldau, Paprika Steen and Sonja Richter as well as music by the UK's Anthony Genn (Pulp).
