Stockholm Fest: Helmer Mikael Marcimain Talks Film

4 November 2014 7:06 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After helming critically acclaimed Swedish miniseries including “How Soon Is Now” and “The Laser Man,” Mikael Marcimain made his debut feature with “Call Girl,” winning the debut prize in Toronto in 2012 and 11 Swedish Guldbagge nominations, and also stirring controversy in Sweden for its unflattering depiction of the political establishment. Now Marcimain is back with “Gentlemen,” a period piece that opens the Stockholm Film Festival.  The pic, about a young writer telling the story of the mysterious Morgan brothers, premiered in Toronto’s Special Presentation.

How would you describe “Gentlemen?”

Gentlemen” is a genre-mixing tale, a proclamation of love to cinema, and to the untruthful joy of narration. Film noir, the French New Wave, Robert Altman and Ettore Scola have been some of my sources of inspiration.

Gentlemen” is a classic in Swedish literature. The writer Klas Ostergren also wrote the script. Can you describe your working relationship?
