Two Scandinavian films in three Thai cities

The European Union Film Festival 2004 in Thailand this year is participated by two Scandinavian films – “Mona’s World” (“Monas Verden”) from Denmark and “Gossip” from Sweden. The two films join 22 movies from many other EU countries in the special screening in three Thai cities.
     The festival kicked off in Bangkok from May 20 – 30. It will then move to the Chiang Mai from June 1-13 before going northeast to Udorn Thani from June 11-20.
     “Mona’s World” is a comedy by Danish director Jonas Elmer. The story revolves around Mona, a 30-something single who leads a life filled with adventure and romance, in her dreams that is. But an ordinary visit to the bank is about to make her real life as exciting as her imagined one, and introduce her to the man of her dreams in a way she never dreamt of.
     The film is screened at Major Cineplex Central World Plaza, Bangkok, on May 22, 28 and 30. It will be shown at Major Cineplex, Chiang Mai on June 2, and at Major Cineplex, Udorn Thani on June 13.
     From Sweden, director Colin Nutley sends his drama comedy “Gossip”, which takes a look into the hopes, fears, emotions and insecurities of ten actresses during one day of their lives. All of them hope to be given the part of Queen Christina in an American remake of the Garbo classic – a break that could be the chance of a lifetime.
     “Gossip” is on show at Major Cineplex Central World Plaza, Bangkok on May 22, 24 and 27, then at Major Cineplex, Chiang Mai on June 3 and at Major Cineplex, Udorn Thani on June 12.
     The film festival is co-organized in Thailand by the Delegation of the European Commission, the Embassies of the European Union Member States, and Major Cineplex Group. All films are shown in the original language with English subtitles.
