Boosted to a certain extent by archive footage of cheering audiences of yesteryear, the 2021 Guldbagge Awards ceremony, celebrating Sweden’s 2020 in film, was a downscaled, bare-bones affair. Only the winning nominee in each category was present in front of an empty arena at the Stockholm Ericsson Globe. Those stuck in Denmark, Norway or further afield had to make do with a Zoom greeting. “It looks so boring up here today – not a human being, just a bunch of cameras,” exclaimed an actress in her acceptance speech. But there was also some joy to be had.

Particularly pleased were the makers of the darkly witty indie drama Run Uje Run, the winner of the Awards for Best Film, Best Screenplay and Best Actor – with both of the latter going to the film's namesake Uje Brandelius, whose real-life struggles with Parkinson’s disease form the basis of the story. The movie, which introduces the directorial talents of Henrik Schyffert, a durable and multi-gifted mainstay in Swedish pop culture (he was a member of the 1990s music group Whale, and wrote and acted in Four Shades of Brown), is currently selling out screenings in cinemas all over Sweden, which are limited to eight audience members. “It looks good. We expect to make a profit in… 60 years!” quipped Schyffert.

The other big winner was, as expected, Amanda Kernell’s grim divorce drama Charter [+leggi anche:

, with the Best Director Award for Kernell, the Best Leading Actress Award for Ane Dahl Torp and the Best Cinematography gong for Sophia Olsson, the only winner present. Charter is Sweden’s current Oscar entry, while Run Uje Run won the annual Swedish Film Critics’ Association prize, the Greta Award, last week.

. Markus Castro’s Ghabe, a tale of Syrian refugees in Sweden, won the Best Supporting Actor Award for the performance by real-life Syrian refugee Ahmad Fadel – who got the role through a Facebook post and may well have been the happiest recipient of the evening.
