The Yellow Affair brings genre to Cannes

The Finnish-Swedish sales agency The Yellow Affair is bringing two Nordic genre films to the Cannes Market.

The first of the two is Robin, a Danish psychological thriller about a traumatised woman who is found in a forest and claims to have witnessed a murder. The police cannot find anything to back her story, yet Robin is convinced she will be the next victim. Desperate, she starts her own investigation to find out what happened. Robin is directed by Antonio Steve Tublén and stars Rosalinde MynsterJesper Christensen and Julie G Wester. The film was previously screened at this year’s Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival.

The second film is the comedy/thriller Becker: Small Town Gangster, directed by Martin Larsson. Becker (Henrik Lilliér) is the unofficial king of the small town of Tingsryd. There, he runs a successful furniture business, but his main job is illegal stuff. A violent confrontation lurks just around the corner when big-city drug gangsters move in. The cast also includes Sonja Richter, Lars Rante and Torkel Petersson and will be released in Sweden on the 1st of September.

The Yellow Affair has also brought the film Garden Lane, directed by Olof Spaak and starring Karin Franz Körlof and Simon J Berger. The film is about two adults who meet at a funeral and relive their youth; their parents were drug addicts, and for a few summer months they were together as a family, but as the mother and father slipped deeper into misery, the children were left to find their own means of emotional survival.
