Video of Alex receiving the Undine Award 2005

Postby kant1781 » Wed Sep 29, 2010 1:52 am

Well, so, I promised this to Cody Wilkes the First ages ago, but now I finally got around to do it: In 2005 Alexandra received the Undine Award, an Austrian film prize for young actors and actresses, for "Best Actress from the Nordic Countries", presented to her at the Congress Casino in Baden (Austria), September 30, 2005. The laudator was Austrian actress Elke Winkens.
A one-hour movie file of the ceremony was put on the festival website from which I ripped it in cooperation with Jenny, then webmistress of the now long-defunct website alexandra-dahlstrom.com. The file was then hosted on her site and suddenly disappeared together with it in 2007. Since then it has been lost - at least I am not aware that it has been available anywhere. I have now made a nice little 6-minute-video of the part in which Alexandra gets her prize and put it on youtube:

Enjoy! First, there is a short laudatio which is in German. (I may get around to translating it later on.) After that, a clip from "Fröken Sverige" for which Alex was being honoured. And then, a wonderful speech by Alex, partly in German, partly in English, partly in Swedish, with a more than confused Swedish ambassador to Austria trying to translate her words into German. He fails miserably, but to be honest, I would have been more than confused in her presence that night too. She looks devastatingly gorgeous.

Beautiful.

I'm sure I would be as tongue tied as the ambassador too, and I agree that "She looks devastatingly gorgeous". Image

Thanks heaps for sharing. :D *:)*

I especially love the small glance she throws at the ambassador around 4:33 when she starts to realize that something's going wrong with his translations... so cute. :lol: The last thing she says, by the way, means "I promise that I won't wait for another seven years before I make my next film". (The presenter had alluded to the fact that seven years lie between FA and Fröken Sverige.) Lovely accent, too. :oops:

You may be right concerning the facts, but she clearly says "sieben" (pronounced "ZEE-ban"), meaning "seven".

I downloaded the full movie back when -took hours, and then the thing wouldn't play at all!

Thank heavens for Dave. *:)*

Almost as if she can't look at him for fear of bursting out laughing. Very cute. :D

Maybe he was just nervous because he was aware of Alex's record of messing up award ceremonies by turning acceptance speeches into polictial manifestos. :lol:

She really gave that dork heaps, and deservedly so too. :x :twisted: Image
