<i>Evil</i> Winner of 3 Swedish Awards and Oscar nomination

Swedish "Guldbagge" (Golden Beetle) Awards

Evil directed by Mikael Håfström took home "Golden Beetles" for best Swedish film of 2003, best cinematography (Peter Mokrosinski) and best set design (Anna Asp) on January 26th.

Set in the 1950's the film is about an exclusive school for young men run by bullies that subjugate their peers while teachers and staff look the other way. Erik (Andreas Wilson) stands up to his tormentors and earns the name 'Rat'.The film is an adaptation of the semi-biographical novel by Jan Guillou, one of the most popular writers in Sweden .

The Beetles awards ceremony took place during the Göteborg Film Festival. Håfström and Wilson were on hand to receive a phone call from Hollywood informing them that Evil is nominated for Best Foreign Language Film of 2003 for the Academy Awards. The film has been seen by 900,000 viewers in Sweden since its premiere on September 26, ten percent of the population.
