Scandinavian Film Festival

Back for it’s second year, the Scandinavian Film Festival returns to Melbourne with a fantastic line-up of dramas, comedies and thrillers from Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Iceland.

The festival will open with the hilarious and quirky Here is Harold:

“A Norwegian road movie about a man who sets out to kidnap the founder of IKEA. For over 40 years, Harold has been running a successful business, “Lunde Furniture”. But this comes to an end when IKEA decides to open a new superstore right next door to his small furniture shop. In mounting anger and desperation, Harold wants revenge. He arms himself with a  pistol and sets off for Älmhult, Sweden, in order to kidnap his Nemesis, the founder of Ikea, Ingvar Kamprad. But unfortunately, Kamprad is quite happy to be kidnapped.”
