Kronlöf here for opening of the Scandinavian Film Festival

Share Canberra's trusted news:

ORGANISERS of the 2nd Scandinavian Film Festival opening tonight are over the moon at news that Finnish-Swedish comedian Bianca Kronlöf, star of “Underdog”, will be attending the opening night of the event at Palace Electric.

Kronlöf, who is paying a flying visit to Austalia for the event, plays 23-year-old Dino in the debut film by Swedish tabloid journalist, Ronnie Sandahl, who escapes to nouveau?riche Oslo and finds herself in the loop of temporary jobs and bingeing until she talks herself into a job as housekeeper for an ex-tennis star and finds herself in an off triangle with the father and his teenage daughter.

Kronlöf is much more famous in Sweden for performing comedy using her own material, and recently told “CityNews”, “I was quite nervous about how the audiences would react to my doing this”.

Other movies the Scandinavian Film Festival include the hilarious “Here Is Harold”, a Norwegian road movie about a man who sets out to kidnap the founder of Ikea, the Icelandic drama “Life In A Fish Bowl”, set in Reykjavik on the eve of the country’s 2008 economic meltdown and the Danish Nordic noir film, “The Absent One”, involving a double murder of twins.
