We’re coming up against the last few days of the Swedish film weeks at Lincoln Center. The much anticipated The Girl Who Played with Fire will close the program on Wednesday May 4. I would tell you to see it, but tickets sold out two weeks ago.
Another screening not to be missed is the selection of New Shorts this Friday, April 30 at 5.30 pm. It includes Stig Björkman’s Images from the Playground, a portrait of Ingmar Bergman that includes clips from Bergman’s own home movies. Jonas Odell’s Lies is another highlight.
There are also some truly amazing Swedish classics scheduled: These include A Swedish Love Story, Roy Andersson’s beautiful and tender film of two teenagers in love (and a great portrait of teenage Stockholm in 1969) which will play on Friday, April 30 at 9.15 pm, as well as yet another screening of I Am Curious (Yellow) on Friday at 7.20 pm.
