              Writer/director Grmur Hkonarsons eagerly-anticipated follow up to the worldwide hit Rams is a rousing, David-and-Goliath comedy about a farmers wife who steps up to take on the corrupt local co-op in her remote Icelandic valley. Dairy farmers Inga (Arnds Hrnn Egilsdttir) and her ...husband Reynir (Hinrik lafsson), love each other deeply, but are trapped theyre in debt, theyre working 24/7 and havent had a vacation in years. Inga has always been frustrated by the unquestioned commitment Reynir has to the local co-operative, unable to see the logic in them holding a monopoly over the milk they produce (nor in being forced to pay considerably more for groceries and supplies than what those items cost online or in Reykjavik). So after disaster strikes, and the plucky Inga is forced to try and make it on her own, she launches a social media campaign to bring attention to the organisations exploitative practices. Unfortunately, everyone else in the community is dependent on its economic heft, and Ingas quest soon makes her the target of a ruthless adversary. Reminiscent of underdog fables such as Woman At War and Three Billboards, and driven by Egilsdttir's commanding and moving performance (as well as a fine turn from Rams star Sigurur Sigurjnsson as the co-op's self-assured director), Hkonarsons humanistic and charming film deftly melds wry humour and Icelandic gruffness to deliver an crowd-pleasing tale of a woman whos simply had enough, and decides to try to live life on her own terms.

              Final Account is an urgent portrait of the last living generation of everyday people to participate in Adolf Hitler's Third Reich. Over a decade in the making, the film raises vital, timely questions about authority, conformity, complicity and perpetration, national identity, and... responsibility, as men and women ranging from former SS members to civilians in never-beforeseen interviews reckon with in very different ways their memories, perceptions and personal appraisals of their own roles in the greatest human crimes in history. FINAL ACCOUNT will appeal to audiences who enjoyed HITLER'S BODYGUARD, THE WORLD AT WAR.

              Set in Denmark's underbelly, first time writer/director Jeanette Nordahls striking Scandi noir follows an impressionable teenage girl who's placed in the care of an estranged relative (a remarkable Sidse Babett Knudsen), the head of a family crime syndicate. After losing her moth...er in a car accident, shy and grieving 17-year-old Ida (Sandra Kampp, a major discovery) is taken in by her aunt Bodil (Knudsen) and her three adult sons in the Danish countryside. Ida hardly knows this brassy, suburban matriarch, but its a tender and welcoming environment so she soon settles into the new surroundings. They're a loving - if dysfunctional - family at first glance, and its not until Ida learns of the shady nature of the family business that she begins to see through their gestures of affection and concern. Even so, young Ida finds herself drawn more and more into their world, and this complicity spurs some overwhelming moral and emotional choices.
