This fall at Scandinavia House, experience Nordic comedy at its darkest with “Svart Humor”! “If there’s a dead body in Denmark, someone is going to make a joke about it,” director Anders Jensen once said; Nordic comedies are as known for their deadpan, dry wit as for their occasionally noir subject matter, celebrating the “svart/sort” (dark) side of life’s hilarities.
On October 25, see the Day By Day (Sweden, 2022), the newest film from The 100-Year-Old-Man director Felix Herngren!
In this life-affirming tale about it never being too late to make changes in your life, five very different people come together on a campervan trip from Gothenburg to Switzerland to honor an old man’s last wish.Cross-generation friendships develop, love arrives in twilight years, and life-changing decisions are made.
Nominated for the 2022 Guldbagge Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role (Sven Wollter).
