AX1 Films is thrilled to announce an Oscar win for IN A BETTER WORLD for Best Foreign Language Film, following its win in the same category at the Golden Globes. From the confines of a refugee camp in Africa, to the deceptively idyllic suburban life of two families in Denmark, director Susanne Bier expertly paints a portrait of two fragile worlds inextricably linked by conflict and violence and the hard choices struggling to be made for life in a better world. Coming to cinemas in the U.K and Ireland later this year.


MAMMUTH received three César nominations including Best Actor (Gerard Dépardieu), Best Film and Best Director (Benoit Delépine and Gustave Kervern).

As he turns 60, a working-class man takes his retirement.  When he tries to claim his well-deserved pension, he runs into the implacable wall of bureaucracy. To receive full benefits, his only solution is to go back to his previous employers and gather the missing records.

MAMMUTH opens in UK cinemas 03 June
