Today’s film is the 2003 short Nu, also known as Now. The film is directed by Simon Staho, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Peter Asmussen, and stars Elin Klinga, Mikael Persbrandt, and Mads Mikkelsen. While Mikkelsen first drew the attention of film fans as part of filmmaker Nicholas Winding Refn’s Pusher trilogy, he gained widespread attention for this role as Le Chiffre in 2006’s Casino Royale. He also won Best Actor at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival for The Hunt, before taking on the titular role in NBC’s Hannibal. His newest feature, Charlie Countryman, opened in limited release in American theatres this weekend.
