“Monica Z” wins prize for Best New Nordic Film at The Norwegian International Film Festival

The jury’s motivation: An impressive, solid film in which the core story revolves around the personal cost of creativity and success. Period details are perfect down to the minutiae in colors, interiors, clothing and surroundings, and the way the film melds images and music has an “almost too good to be true-quality” about it.
