'Snow White' tops Swiss noms
COLOGNE -- Iraqi-born Swiss director Samir's cross-cultural romance Snow White leads the nominations for this year's Swiss Film Prize, Switzerland's top film honor, with noms for best film, best actor (Carlos Leal) and best supporting actor (Zoe Miku), the Swiss selection jury announced Thursday. The film, about a troubled romance between a young, upper-class Swiss girl and a drug-dealing rapper from an immigrant family, premiered at the Locarno Film Festival earlier this year. Also nominated for the best film prize were Michael Steiner's family-friendly comedy Mein Name Ist Eugen (My Name Is Eugen); Ruxandra Zenide's coming-of-age drama Ryna; Fragile, from first-time director Laurent Negre; and Die Vogelpredigt (The Bird Sermon), Clemens Klopfenstein's satire on the Swiss film industry.
