I love my job. Especially when jobs as fun as this one show up. The poster for the swedish action/drama/war movie “GRÄNSEN” turned out just awesome. The task was make up on actors. Bloody, sweaty and tired looking soldiers with plenty of roughness around the edges. The movie premiered a couple of days ago and has gotten very good reviews, so I intend to see it very soon.
Director of the movie is Richard Holm and writers are André Sjöberg and Johnny Steen
“The story takes place in december of 1942 and is about two young soldiers who leave their post in Värmland, Sweden to make it through the ice-cold winter just by the nazi-occupied Norwegian border. Sweden is threatened to be invaded and the soldiers want to see the enemy that everyone is talking about. Soon one of the soldier’s brother is missing and with all the odds against him, he goes behind enemies lines, on a secret rescue mission. Disaster waits ahead for the soldiers as they struggle to come out alive”.

Putting make up on Martin Wallström. Couple of weeks before this job I had seen him in the movie “I rymden finns inga känslor”. My daughters really liked that movie.
