Swedish children's film Tsatsiki, Mum And The Policeman dominated the Swedish Film Awards - the Guldbagga 1999 - which took place in Stockholm yesterday, winning prizes for best film, best direction, best cinematography and best script.
The film, which also took the top prize at the Goteborg Film Festival over the weekend, is directed by Ella Lemhagen and written by Ulf Stark with Anders Bohman as DoP.
Other Guldbagga prizewinners include best actress Katarina Ewerlöf for Kjell Sundvall's In Bed with Santa (Tomten Ar Far Till Alla Barnen) and best actor Björn Kjellman for Daniel Lind Lagerlof's Breaking Out (Vagen Ut), which also won best supporting actor for Shanti Roney's performance. Pernilla August won best supporting actress for Richard Hobert's Where the Rainbow Ends (Dar Regnbagen Sluter) and Pedro Almodóvar picked up yet another prize for All About My Mother which won best foreign film.
The 20th Ingmar Bergman award surprisingly went to a Norwegian director Torun Lian for Only Clouds Move The Stars. The film was selected by Ingmar Bergman himself and the newly appointed director of the Swedish Film Institute Ase Kleveland.
