‘The Square’ Leads European Film Awards With Five Nominations


Berlin festival winner ‘On Body And Soul’ and French AIDS drama ‘Beats Per Minute’ are also strong contenders for this year’s EFAs.

Ruben Ostlund’s The Square, a satire of the art world starring Claes Bang, Elisabeth Moss and Dominic West, is the frontrunner at this year’s European Film Awards (EFA) with five nominations, including best film, best comedy, best director, best screenwriter and a best acting nom for Bang.

Just behind in the nomination stakes is On Body and Soul, the dark love story from Hungarian filmmaker Ildiko Enyedi that won the Berlin Film Festival this year, which picked up four EFA nominations, including for best film. Other best film nominees include Andrey Zvyagintsev’s divorce drama Loveless and Yorgos Lanthimos’ surreal family drama The Killing of a Sacred Deer, both of which nabbed three EFA noms in total. Robin Campillo’s AIDS drama BPM (Beats Per Minute) and Aki Kaurismäki’s refugee melodrama The Other Side of Hope both scored two nominations.

All are being sold at AFM: The Square with Coproduction Office, BPM with Playtime, The Killing of a Sacred Deer at HanWay, On Body and Soul at Films Boutique and The Other Side of Hope with The Match Factory.

French stars Isabelle Huppert and Juliette Binoche, nominated, respectively, for Happy End and Let the Sun Shine In, will go head-to-head in the best actress category, alongside Germany’s Paula Beer (Franz), English actress Florence Pugh (Lady Macbeth) and On Body And Soul star Alexandra Borbély.

Going up against Bang in the best actor contest are Colin Farrell for The Killing of a Sacred Deer, Nahuel Pérez Biscayart for BPM, Jean-Louis Trintignant for Happy End and Austrian comedian Josef Hader for Stefan Zweig — Farewell to Europe.
