Competition: Win Acclaimed Scandinavian Dramas On DVD With The Hunt

By Sam Bathe on 29 Nov 2012

To mark the release of the much anticipated drama The Hunt in cinemas tomorrow (November 30th), we’ve got some of the best Scandinavian drama from the small screen for you to win. Show the rest of this post…

The lucky winner will get their hands on Seasons 1 and 2 of The Killing, and the first seasons of both The Bridge, and Borgen – three Danish dramas that have all won acclaim on British screens. The Hunt continues this fine tradition on the silver screen, with Mads Mikkelsen (winner of best actor at Cannes in this role) starring as a teacher whose life is shattered by an innocent lie.

Following a tough divorce, 40-year-old Lucas is starting to pull his life back together again. He has a new girlfriend, a new job, and is in the process of re-establishing his relationship with his teenage son Marcus. However one passing remark threatens Lucas’s newfound stability. One of the children he looks after at the nursery where he works, a little girl with a vivid imagination, tells a random lie which is impossible to ignore. Her allegation spreads like a virus, quickly acquiring the veneer of truth the more it is told. As shock turns to mistrust and then malice, it doesn’t take long before this small community is in a collective state of hysteria, igniting a witch-hunt that threatens to destroy an innocent man’s life.

Directed by Thomas Vinterberg – co-founder of the Dogme movement alongside Lars von Trier, and director of the award-winning international hit FestenThe Hunt won the Best Actor prize (Mads Mikkelsen), as well as the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury (Thomas Vinterberg) and the Vulcain Prize for Technical Artist (to Director of Photography Charlotte Bruus Christensen) at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, where it screened to critical acclaim In Competition.

For your chance to win some Scandinavian drama to watch at home, simply answer this question:

With which fellow director did Thomas Vinterberg co-found the Dogme 95 movement?

A) Gus Van Sant
B) Lars von Trier
C) Peter Greenaway

To enter, simply follow us on Twitter here and @reply us the correct answer. Deadline 09/12/12.

The Hunt is in cinemas tomorrow (November 30th)

To celebrate the release of A Very Harold and Kumar (3D) Christmas on 3D Blu-ray™ and DVD now, we have got five copies of the Blu-ray to giveaway. Show the rest of this post…

Following years of growing apart, Harold Lee (Cho) and Kumar Patel (Penn) have replaced each other with new friends and are preparing for their respective Yuletide celebrations. But when a mysterious package mistakenly arrives at Kumar’s door on Christmas Eve, his attempt to redirect it to Harold’s house ends with the “high grade” contents – and Harold’s father-in-law’s prize Christmas tree – going up in smoke. With his in-laws out of the house for the day, Harold decides to cover his tracks, rather than come clean. Reluctantly embarking on another ill-advised journey with Kumar through New York City, their search for the perfect replacement tree takes them through party heaven – and almost blows Christmas Eve sky high.

Who directed A Very Harold And Kumar (3D) Christmas?

B) Danny Leiner
