Marius, whose other film credits include Dragonflies (2001) and Mirush (2007), recently took the time to speak to Thn about freezing film conditions, how to juggle professional and amateur actors, and the urban legend that is Bastøy island.
First of all Marius cleared up an internet rumour that the film had been shot in 54 days.
Actually that’s a false rumour! It was shot in 47 days. I don’t know when but it ended up on the net somewhere. We shot it in 47 days.
