Bunch of Kunst (2017)

Documentary follows the British punk duo Sleaford Mods on their two-year journey from Nottingham bedroom recording sessions to chart success.

Very insightful and down-to-earth view of a left-field combo slowly getting dragged into the maelstrom of commerce - and keeping to their integrity.

The Visit (2015)

Two siblings become increasingly frightened by their grandparents' disturbing behavior while visiting them on vacation.
Quite scary horror movie slyly staged as an amateur documentary by the two kids; surprisingly, it works very well, thanks to a good cast and intelligent direction.

Skammen (1968)

In the midst of a civil war, former violinists, who have a tempestuous marriage, run a farm on a rural island, and in spite of their best efforts to escape their homeland, the war impinges on every aspect of their lives.

Highly intense study of what war does to human beings; the setting is incredibly bleak and apocalyptic, and the director doesn't spare the audience from some harrowing moments; the performances are excellent, of course.

Maltin****: "Powerful, brilliantly acted drama...One of Bergman's best."
