A Thousand Times Good Night, the war photographer drama from Norwegian director Erik Poppe,
was the big winner at Norway's (recent) Amanda Awards, taking home best
Norwegian feature, best cinematography and best score at the awards
ceremony this weekend.
The English-language feature stars Oscar-winning French actress Juliette Binoche and Game of Thrones actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
Binoche plays Rebecca, an acclaimed war photographer. Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister on Game of Thrones,
plays Binoche's husband, Marcus, who demands his wife give up her work
in combat zones for the sake of him and their two children.
Coster-Waldau next appears in Susanne Bier's Danish-language drama A Second Chance, which will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month.
A Thousand Times Good Night premiered at the Montreal International Film Festival, where it won the Special Jury Grand Prix. Global Screen is selling the title worldwide. Film Movement will bow the feature in the US October 24.
In addition to the best feature honor, A Thousand Times Good Night picked up best cinematography honors for John Christian Roselund and best score for composer Armand Amar.
