Antichrist sweeps Danish awards

Lars von Trier’s "Antichrist" swept the boards at the Bodil Awards ceremony, organised by the Danish Film Critics Association. The film that caused such uproar at Cannes 2009 was also the most celebrated by the entire Danish film industry. It had already won seven Roberts awards from the Danish Film Academy last month.

"Antichrist" won five Bodils:
Best Danish Film
Best Actress (Charlotte Gainsbourg)
Best Actor (Willem Dafoe)
Best Cinematographer (Anthony Dod Mantle)
Best Sound Design (Kristian Eidne Andersen).
