Byrne About Byrne
In this diverse and inventive autobiography, John Byrne , playwright and painter, takes you from his youth, through his art school years to the period of his stage and television plays, and on to his death sometime in the future. Accompanying him is
Robbie Coltrane as himself and as a shamus invented by Byrne to recover a missing portrait, who discovers there are as many aspects to the author as there are actors playing him.

In 1975, Anja Breien, inspired by John Cassavetes's film Husbands, made Wives, the mischievous tale of three women who went off on a spree to Copenhagen. Ten years later, the three women meet up again and compare their lives and experiences with men. Shaking off responsibilities, they take off for a merry Christmas in Malmo. Wives - Ten Years After is a caustic comedy, taking a frank look at marriage Scandinavian-style.
Screenplay by Anja Breien and Knut Faldbakken in collaboration with the cast.
