"House of Angels"
Directed by Colin Nutley
Colin Nutley won the Guldbagge Award for Best
Direction for his work on Anglagard, which was also nominated for the Guldbagge
for Best Film (1992). Contemporary tale about a worldly young woman who arrives in a
tiny rural hamlet to claim a manor house and forest land that she has inherited from her
grandfather, a man that she never met. She arrives on the back of a motorcycle,
being driven by a rough-looking character in black leather who is actually her closest
friend. The country folk are aghast at the free-spirited Fanny. A neighboring
farmer who had planned to buy the forest land at auction, under the assumption that the
old man had died without heirs, is especially irritated by the young woman's presence.
Fanny is delightfully portrayed by Helena Bergstrom.
