A tweet much more interesting than anything tweeted by the Donald.

A digitally modified high quality re-release of Fucking Åmål is to premiere next week in Stockholm.
Bex and Lex will be there.
Does Fish dare hope for a new DVD release to follow? :Y *:)*
Is he excited? *:)* *:)* *:)* *:)* :lol:

"Moodysson's successful debut regains the right look after nearly 20 years

Fucking Amal has barely gone to see as it looked at the movies when they came in 1998, as it was verging on impossible to digitize of sufficiently high quality. Until now. Soon the film will be able to be shown in cinemas across Sweden, seen through VOD, TV and other windows. At the revival of the Cinematheque is also protagonists Rebecka Liljeberg and Alexandra Dahlström, the film's producer Lars Jönsson and film journalist Andrea Reuter in place for a conversation about the movie.

Lukas Moodysson's drama school in the small town of Amal was seen by the whole 868,015 people in cinemas in Sweden and became an international success with over 1.29 million moviegoers abroad. It was awarded the Guldbagge for best film, best screenplay, best director and best actress. It won the prestigious queer film prize Teddy Award at the Berlin Film Festival and qualified last year in the British Film Institute's list of top LGBT films ever. The film has been so difficult to restore digitally depends on the process that gave the film its peculiar grainy appearance. It was shot on 16mm reversalfilm as negative was developed and then turned to the 35mm master before cutting and then to 35mm duplikatnegativ as light added to the final display copy. A very intricate analogue process that had previously been impossible to recreate digitally.

- Fucking Åmål film prints had a nice and unique look when the movie came out in 1998. When it was made video and television masters not so hung with contemporary technology. It was in some scenes too dark and noisy. Funny that the digital versions can finally live up to the original, says Lars Jonsson.

Fredrik Rundqvist, materials manager, said Swedish Film Institute's digital restoration of the film:
- There was an extensive process. We scanned everything, 16mm-reversalfilmen and the various 35-mm materials to test which gave best results. We have had test impressions with Lukas Moodysson and Lars Jönsson in place in our cinema and compared with the analog display copies in the archive. In the end, we assumed anyway from 16mm-reversalfilmen, and has processed it for getting the digital restoration as similar to the version of the film that first met the audience as possible.

Revival, time and place: Wednesday, March 15 at. 18:00 to 19:30, with subsequent calls, Cinematheque at the Film House, Castle Road 1 in Stockholm. Read more at the Cinematheque web"

I'll have faith in any system that will deliver a new HD DVD. *:)* :lol:
There are literally dozens and dozens of pics similar to this on Insta.
But I liked the sentiments written on this one. Image

I generally use "Imgrum" to see the pics as it's easier to save them.
Here's a couple of links to the tags (#) for both "fuckingamal" and "fuckingåmål".
[url]http://www.imgrum.org/tag/fuckingåmål[/url]
The alternative to "tag" is "user" if you know the user's name.
Note: You have to be specific about the spelling because it looks for exactly what you ask.

(for some reason that second link refused to be a link. just copy & paste if you want it. :? )

I,ve sent to "Svenska Filminstitutet" an email, when we will have this dvd.

They answer this:

"Dear Santi,
I’m glad that you found out about our restoration. At the moment we only have the film on dcp, för digital cinema screenings. The producer is working on releasing the film for streaming and dvd, and I hope we will have news on this during the fall. So keep an eye out for more information then!

Best regards,
Lova Hagerfors"

The movie is being shown at the Way Out West festival at Gotebörg (Gothenburg) on Thursday at 6:30.
Svensk Film have posted this today on their Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/SvenskaFilminstitutet
"On Thursday at 18.30 pm, Lukas Moodyssons Fucking Åmål is appearing on way out west in Gothenburg.
The film, which for a long time was not available for display, was digitally included by Galicia last winter. The work was extensive and one of filminstitutets's biggest digitisation so far.
The film is shown in cooperation with west pride and after the movie follows talks with among other Alexandra Dahlström."


Hopefully a new HD DVD will follow soon after. *:)*

It looks like Cinemateket never filmed the re-release premiere event.
The only hope is for small clips from the audience and I think we've found just about all of those. *:|*
