A big batch of additional production stills from “Lamb” have been added to the photo gallery, alongside a couple of new on-set pictures and international posters. I have been keeping my fingers crossed for today’s announcement of the European Film Award nominations, but besides a well deserved nomination for the best film by a first-time director, “Lamb” didn’t make the cut in any other categories. It would have been a fitting honor for Noomi to be recognized 10 years after her nomination for “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”. Anyway, have a look at the new pictures below.

With all recent films being added to the photo gallery, I went through my archives to see which production stills were missing – and there have been a lot. So enjoy lots of additional updates on Noomi’s film, television and theatre working, starting as early as 2004’s stage production of “Den älskade” all the way through the “Millennium” trilogy, “Child 44” and “Unlocked” to the most recent “The Trip”. For a complete list of updates, have a look at the previews below.

During the last couple of weeks, I’ve updated pretty much all the content of Noomi Rapace Online, so here’s a little overview: The career section has received a complete makeover with all projects being updated. Here, you’ll find shortcuts to the photo galleries, related videos as well as streaming options. The press archive has been updated as well (I’ll think of a better way to make them easier to browse) and I’ve been able to revive the old video archive. While there have been some broken links, I’ve decided to start this section completely new, so we can make sure that all videos are still available. They are neatly sorted into categories, so you can browse by year, public appearances, television interviews and much more. The only thing missing are the video clips from her earlier films, they will be added step by step as time permits. And with a lot of updates on the photo gallery, Noomi Rapace Online is pretty much back in shape. Have a look around, enjoy your stay and check back soon for more to come.

According to Deadline, Valdimar Jóhannsson’s Lamb has been selected as Iceland’s official entry for the Best International Feature Film category at the 2022 Academy Awards. Lamb, which debuted in Cannes’ Un Certain Regard section and won its Prize of Originality is Jóhannsson’s first feature and is released domestically by A24. This past weekend, it hit the Top 10 for the second frame running at the North American box office, surging past $2M. Jóhannsson co-wrote the screenplay with celebrated Icelandic poet Sjón. Noomi Rapace, who is also an executive producer, stars in the dark and malevolent folktale about a childless couple in rural Iceland who make an alarming discovery one day in their sheep barn and soon face the consequences of defying the will of nature. Prior to its U.S. debut, Lamb took prizes at the Sitges Catalonian International Film Festival. Panda, the sheepdog in the movie, also shared the Palm Dog Awards’ Jury Prize in Cannes. In its home market, the movie opened September 24 via Sena and has held in the Top 5 amid Hollywood newcomers. At open in the U.S., the R-rated picture grossed $1.1M, becoming the highest grossing Icelandic film of all time in the market. It is the first title distributed by A24 to be selected as a country’s official entry for the Best International Feature Oscar race and is carrying an 84% Fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes. Iceland has previously scored one Oscar nomination in this category, for 1991’s Children Of Nature by Friðrik Þór Friðriksson. Baltasar Kormakur’s 2012 drama The Deep made the shortlist.

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. The debut feature from Icelandic director Johannsson premiered in the Un Certain Regard section of Cannes this year. It combines Nordic folk legend with WTF horror elements in the story of Icelandic sheep farmers who seize on a startling discovery during lambing season. A24 has North American rights for the film. Rapace also took best actress at Sitges, sharing the prize ex-aequo with Susanne Jensen for her starring performance in Peter Brunner’s Austrian horror film “Luzifer”. Australian director Justin Kurzel took Sitges best direction honor for “Nitram”, a thriller looking at the events leading up the 1996 Port Arthur massacre on Tasmania. Best actor honors went ex-aequo to “Nitram” star Caleb Landry Jones and “Luzifer”‘s Franz Rogowski. More information on all the winners can be found over at The Hollywood Reporter.

Hello everybody, Frederik here. Frequent visitors of Noomi Rapace Online may remember me from way back when I created the site in 2010 and maintained it until 2018. With changing priorities and declining interest in her projects back then, I gave the site up for “adoption” and it was taken over. But when I recently saw it was up for adoption again, I couldn’t resist to give it another go – especially with Noomi’s most recent projects that look so edgy, entertaining and back to her roots. So, my thanks to the previous owner Marilia, for updating it over the past years, and to my host Flaunt for making this comeback of sorts possible. There’s lots of material that needs to be updated from the previous years and quite some catch-up to do on Noomi’s most recent projects, so please bear with me as the site will be updated over the next couple of weeks. I have decided to re-do all the sites, ie. the career pages, press library and video archive – which got apparently lost along the way. Check back soon for more updates and have a look at the photo gallery for lots of new additions to be added. Thanks and enjoy your stay.

Here comes a nice interview with Entertainment Weekly for this week’s theatrical release of “Lamb” in the United States: Noomi Rapace had no time to be sheepish on the set of Lamb. On her first day of filming A24’s Icelandic horror-drama, she found herself in a barn helping deliver a baby lamb live on camera. “I didn’t have any time to practice,” the Swedish actress recalls with a laugh. “I had this rush of adrenaline right before we started. I was waiting in my trailer, and then all of a sudden I heard a knock, and they’re like, ‘Come on, it’s coming!’ I ran down to the barn, but as soon as I sat down in front of [the mother sheep] and saw this little head starting to come out, I got really calm. It was so magical, pulling out that little creature and seeing it stand up for the first time and take its first breaths. Life is so magical and brutal at the same time.”

I loved María from the very first. She’s such an amazing combination of strength, fragility, and violence. She has this primal rage in her, and the way she deals with her grief and heartbreak and her desperation to be a mother again is such a beautiful contradiction. It wasn’t hard to find her, strangely enough. I grew up on a farm, so I’ve lived farm life. But I hadn’t delivered baby lambs, so that was new.

The complete interview can be read over at Entertainment Weekly.
