RTH Labs believes it has uncovered Björk‘s first professional acting appearance. See if you can’t pick her out…after the jump! (NOTE: Some might find the following a bit, shall we say, European—for viewing at work.)

    If the car had been a VW, I would have thought by that opening scene (kids, car, driving) that it was an early Wim Wenders movie.

  2. The little girl in the car who turns her head up and says something to Fonda in a very languid fashion?

  3. ladymisskirroyale

    That was my thought, too. But she’s not credited via IMDb

  4. I assumed Moddy was making a joke with this. I mean, it’s a W. German film, and Björk’s from Iceland, and would have been 17 or 18 at the time this was filmed. She didn’t really appear in any films until 1990.

    What the hell was that? Was something supposed to be happening? Do the people at Film Town Hall think that’s an awesome, under appreciated piece, or is it a turd of the highest order?

    Didn’t see anything Bjork-ian, but I suspect my ISP provider has just red-flagged my account.

  7. Not enough explosions an CGI for you? It’s about post-war Germany, and people (esp. the children; the main character is a 9 year old) trying to return to normalcy despite the psychological and economic damage the war has caused. It’s a pretty good movie; not perfect, but certainly not a turd. Anyway, seeing one sequence, out of context and with no subtitles, isn’t really enough to form an opinion, is it?
    Hell, most trailers make most movies look like they’re going to be great, yet most movies that come out ARE turds of the highest order, or worse, simply mediocre.

  8. “and CGI”, I meant.

    I’m no fan of CGI, though a few explosions would have helped. But are you saying that if you had seen just that clip, and never seen the movie that you would have sussed out anything you just said? It’s not like I don’t like black and white movies, because I do.

  10. HA! I like that one, as well.
    No, what I really meant was that I don’t think there’s enough in that clip to really form an opinion, one way or another. It took me a minute to even remember I’d seen it.

  11. Has Mod just decided to abandon this post without further comment?

  12. What’s there to say? It’s yet another RTH Labs find. What amazes me is how clearly the young Bjork’s role in this film influenced her adult artistic choices.

    Really starting to wonder about yous…

  14. Oh, a wise guy, eh? Which one are you talking about, Moddy, the girl in the car or the one in the giant diaper, watching Fonda make out with the village bicycle (everyone’s had a ride).

  15. The latter. LAUGH OF THE DAY! Thank you.

  16. I still think the girl in the car is more Björkian in the delivery of her line…maybe if that other little girl had one of those inflatable swan floaty-things around her waist, I could see going with her, but….
