1 ‘Snow Angels’, 2 April 2021 on DRTV
Imagine that your child is suddenly gone, and imagine that there are no clues or eyewitnesses. Such is the reality for Salle (Ardalan Esmaili) and Jenni (Josefin Asplund) when they wake up on Christmas Eve.
Thus begins the dramatic miniseries ‘Sneengle’, which is co-produced by Danmarks Radio and the Swedish public service station Sveriges Television.
The Danish screenwriter Mette Heeno, who has written the feature films ‘Happy Ending’ (2018) and ‘All Inclusive’ (2014), is the mastermind behind ‘Sneengle’.
To DR, Mette Heeno says that the central theme in ‘Snow Angels’ is parenting:
“What are some feelings of hope and love, but also desperation and horror associated with parenting, and where can those feelings ultimately lead you? These are some of the underlying related themes that the series explores as everyone searches for the missing baby ‘.

The 21st century has offered many great film experiences from South Korea.
Here, Bong Joon’s gallows humorous and class-critical drama ‘Parasite’ (2019), Kim Ki-duk’s meditative and dark fable ‘Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter … and Spring’ (2003) and Sung-a Yoon’s painful and anthropological documentary ‘Overseas’ (2019) is mentioned.
Until recently, South Korean films of high artistic quality have not been seen by the general public in the West, but there are many indications that the more than 150,000 Danish cinema-goers who saw the Oscar and Palme d’Or winner ‘Parasite’ on the big screen changed the rules.
