Riders of Justice and The Last Marriage win at Bruxelles’ BIFFF
The Méliès d’argent is awarded to the best European feature and short films, on behalf of the Méliès International Festivals Federation (MIFF). The jury for feature films, consisting of journalist Erwan Simon, Zoé Wittock, Daphnée Beaulieux, Olivier Bonjour, Constance Gay, chose Retfærdighedens ryttere (Riders of Justice, 2020) by Anders Thomas Jensen.
Synopsis: Markus, a career military man with an ice-cold disposition, must leave his combat zone to take care of his teenage daughter Mathilde, after his wife’s sudden death in a train accident.
BIFFF shouldn’t even have to introduce the man anymore, because everyone knows his legend at the BIFFF: 2 Silver Méliès Awards, 1 Audience Award and 1 Golden Raven with just two films (THE GREEN BUTCHERS and ADAM’S APPLES). Anders Thomas Jensen is back with his faithful sidekick Mads Mikkelsen to delight us with an absolute gem of absurd black humor!
Special Mention: Host (Rob Sauvage)
The Last Marriage by Gustav Egerstedt & Johan Tappert won the Méliès d’argent for short films.
