ADDITIONAL SCREENING OF ARCTIC.
The festival is adding another screening of the sold-out film Arctic with Danish star Mads Mikkelsen on Friday 22 March at 16:30.
The Nordic drama Arctic was shown at Cannes last year and is receiving a Czech pre-premiere at Febiofest thanks to the festival’s cooperation with distribution company Bohemia Motion Pictures, which will later bring it to Czech cinemas.
The film has been a hit with viewers and has been hailed as one of the most compelling cinema experiences of the year thanks to a career highlight performance from Mikkelsen.
“Arctic is one of those singular cinematic experiences—precise, honest and unrelenting—for which movie theaters still exist. Stripped of backstory, narration (or really, any words at all), or a furry canine companion, it tells this story of self-reliance and survival with such austerity and absolute integrity that the results are breathtaking, even in the moments where the movie seems to amble forward at a glacial pace. This is a performance that demands to be recognized during next year’s award season.” (Oliver Jones – Observer)
