Skandinaviska filmer i världen. Om utlandssekvensers betydelse i Niels Arden Oplevs "Män som hatar kvinnor" (2009), Susanne Biers "Hævnen" (2010) och Sara Johnsens "Upperdog" (2009)

Focus is on the scenes taking place abroad and on the functions that these scenes fill within the films’ overall story and thematic concerns. One conclusion is that scenes set abroad allow the films to divert attention away from otherwise harsh representations of national communities. A brief concluding discussion suggests that such a use of the scenes may facilitate the films’ transnational... (More)
