While Ruben Östlund’s Oscar contender “Triangle of Sadness” dominated Monday night’s Guldbagge Awards – taking six trophies, including Best Film and Best Director – Adam Berg’s Netflix actioner “Black Crab”, starring Noomi Rapace and Jakob Oftebro, was the big winner in the technical categories, taking well deserved Guldbagge honors for Best Cinematography (Jonas Alarik), Best Visual Effects (Simon Sandrin), Best Set Designs (Linda Janson). “Black Crab” premiered on Netflix last March – and it’s definately worth a re-watch.
“Black Crab” is a Swedish action thriller set in a post-apocalyptic world torn apart by war. During a long, harsh winter, six soldiers embark on a covert mission across a frozen archipelago, risking their lives to transport a mysterious package that could end the war. As they enter hostile enemy territory, they have no idea what dangers lie ahead or who – if anyone – they can trust. But for speed skater turned soldier Caroline Edh (Noomi Rapace), the mission is about something else entirely.
According to various Italian sources, such as SkyTG24, Noomi Rapace will receive the Progressive Lifetime Achievement Award during the seventeenth edition of the Rome Film Fest.

The award ceremony will be held today, Sunday 16 October at 19.30, at the Sinopoli Hall of the Auditorium Parco della Musica Ennio Morricone, on the occasion of the world premiere of the Django series, produced by Sky and Cattleya with Atlantique Production and Canal +, directed by Francesca Comencini, in which Noomi Rapace plays the role of the powerful and ruthless Elizabeth Thurman.

The Goran Stolevski-directed horror-drama “You Won’t Be Alone,” was Thursday named the best film at the Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival, Korea’s leading genre film event, Variety reports. The Australia-U.K.-Serbia co-production is set in Macedonia and stars Noomi Rapace in a 19th century tale about a young girl who is transformed into a witch. It premiered at the Sundance festival in January and recently played in Sydney. At the Palm Springs festival, Stolevski won the ‘directors to watch’ prize. The BiFan jury heaped praise on “You Won’t Be Alone.” “It is a phenomenal attempt to interpret the fundamentals of humanity through the means of genre cinema by using alienated and isolated human creatures borrowed from folk tales, added up with mystery. This masterpiece stands out through excellent directing and a clever approach evoking empathy from the abyss of human psychology,” the jurors said. The festival continues through to Sunday and will close with Jung Bum-shik’s “new Normal.”

Congratulations to Noomi Rapace and Vladimir Johannsson for scoring two top prizes at the Sitges Film Festival, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “Lamb” took the top prize for best feature-length film.
