DrÝmmen (2006)

The Crystal Bear, an award signifying the best feature film in the annual Berlin Kinderfilmfest, has just been awarded to DrÝmmen.

This triumph suggests that DrÝmmen should be on top of all of our want lists this year. It's English title will be We Shall Overcome and it stars Janus Dissing Rathke as Frits. Here is a synopsis from the Danish Film Institute.

Thirteen year-old Frits has fallen out of favour with the headmaster of his provincial school. The year is 1969. The world is changing rapidly and corporal punishment has been banned. The tyrannical headmaster, however, hasn't bothered to notice. Frits spends his summer holidays watching the family's first television, and is influenced by the winds of change. Martin Luther King's speeches and dreams of a better life have armoured Frits with courage and the desire for rebellion. When the headmaster steps over the line during punishing Frits, the boy takes up battle against the authorities. The story is based on actual events.

Variety has a review here:

... and they also indicate that the production is credited to Denmark/UK, which is a good indicator there may be an English Subtitles release.

The working title was "Martin Luther King & mig"

There is a good quality trailer available that I downloaded a few days ago but I've lost the address.  Sad

if you translate THAT, "mig" = "me", not a Soviet jet...

Very strange. That translation error is essentially the same one as the one I posted for the Swedish movie, where "och jag" was translated as "and Jag" left instead of "and I"

The working title "Martin Luther King & mig" is not actually a translation ...  it's the original language.   Smiley

I knew 'mig' translated as 'me' or 'I' but I left it as is, expecting Hosenhaus would make mention of it..  and he did in a rather humourous way   Grin
