Hello film lovers,

The film club at the Scandinavian School (Av. Armando Tivane 821) continues to bring you the best of Nordic cinema. This time we will show the Swedish nominee for the 2017 Academy Awards, in the foreign language category: “A Man Called Ove”. A movie that stunningly enough, in these days of streaming and downloading, managed to break most box-office records in Sweden – proving true the old proverb: “Film is best at the theater”. Or, as we’d like to think… even better outdoors in Maputo! Please read more about the film in the attached poster.

  En man som heter Ove (313.3 KiB, 23 hits)

As usual, we appreciate if you can spread the word at your respective workplaces and networks. The date is Tuesday 7/3, showtime 20:00. Feel free to arrive a little early though, to mingle and stock up on Swedish candy, popcorn and beverages. 

Welcome,
Mårten & Per

Dear movie buffs and cineasts,

After having showed a couple of “deep” movies lately, this time the film club at the Scandinavian school (Av Armando Tivane 821) returns with a classic matinee-style action adventure: The Legend of Tarzan, starring the latest Swedish Hollywood hunk, Alexander Skarsgård. Please note, Tarzan may be a comic book character but this movie is certainly not advisable for minors.

For us living in Maputo, experiencing first-hand the effects of colonialism, this the latest of Tarzan movies is of particular interest because the hero is unwittingly dragged into conflicts caused by Belgium’s colonial atrocities in Congo.

But let it be said: reviews have been extremely mixed. When checking imdb.com, half of the reviewers love the movie, while the other half hate it. The only way to determine which category YOU fall into, is by coming down to see it. Read more about the plot in the attached poster.

Please be so kind to spread the word at your respective workplaces. Thanks in advance!

Showtime is 20:00, on Tuesday 31/1. Now we have once again stocked up with a massive stash of Swedish candy, which are for sale along with beverages. Admission and popcorn is however free of charge.

Welcome,
Mårten & Per

danish-4Dear film lovers and cineasts,

Tuesday the 18th of october is time for the first film screening for this season. This time we have broadened the scope, as the movie is not strictly Scandinavian (a British-American co-production), but it is to a large extent set in Copenhagen and stars rapidly rising Swedish actress Alicia Vikander – no less than Academy awarded for her role.

  The Danish Girl (303.8 KiB, 74 hits)

More news is that the screenings are free from now and on. As this movie is quite long we will try to start strictly at 20:00 but please come a little early to socialize and buy drinks.

Please be so kind to spread the info within your organisations. It would be fabulous if the attached poster can be printed and pasted to a message board. If there are new contact persons at the embassies, do let me know.

Dear film lovers,

rare exportsThe Scandinavian Film Club in Maputo finishes off this season with
the Finnish movie Rare Exports. Although only six years of age it
already deserves the label “cult classic”, and it became an instant
favorite on the international film festival circuit. In 2011 it won six
“Jussi Awards” (Finnish Academy Awards).

Parental guidance note: While the film is darkly humourous and
imaginative at the core, please note that it is probably not advisable
to bring kids under the age of 13 since certain scenes and images
could potentially be percieved as scary.

Film Facts:
Title: Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale
Year: 2010
Spoken language: Finnish
English subtitles: Yes
Genre: Dark comedy / fantasy / action
Runtime: 84 minutes
Directed by: Jalmari Helander
Main actors: Onni Tommila, Jorma Tommila, Tommi Korpela

Read more about the film in the attached poster. And if at all
possible, please print and put the poster at an appropriate location.

networks, thanks!
