Well folks, it’s time to dust off your multi-lingual dictionaries and recharge your digital translators because, this week, it’s all about the foreign language film. Movies from Sweden, Greece, and France are in attendance, and an adaptation of a British novel – set in India – and a documentary centered on a Frenchman round out the global palette. Meanwhile, adventures in primordial lands and expeditions in parapsychology offer journeys to the past and to another dimension. And the voyages don’t stop here. Next week: the fabled Gotham City awaits!

Before we even get into a review of the twisty Swedish thriller, "Snabba Cash," retitled "Easy Money" for North American audiences by The Weinstein Company who has picked it up for U.S. release, one has to to first note its trajectory.

Joel Kinnaman can shoot you from 135 yards now -- and possibly more on a good day. Not that he would use his newfound skills for that purpose, but the actor has been training with handguns for the "RoboCop" reboot, which requires a lot more action skills and gunplay than his role as a Seattle cop on "The Killing" ever did. "We can put some action hero shit in there for Holder now!" he laughed with glee about his new skills.

"You guys are behind!" Joel Kinnaman teases. From his vantage point, we are. While the first of the "Snabba Cash" films (called "Easy Money" in English-speaking markets) comes out this week in the U.S., Sweden has already celebrated the first installment, giving the film three Guldbagges (the country's equivalent of an Oscar), including a win for Kinnaman for Best Actor, and moved on to the second, "Snabba Cash II," which comes out August 17th abroad.

It has been a pretty good 2012 for Daniel Espinosa. The director made his Hollywood debut with the action flick "Safe House" starring Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington, and the R-rated movie exceeded expectations, taking more than $120 million at the U.S. box office on it's way to more than $200 million worldwide. So what does he get for an encore? How about Martin Scorsese presenting the stateside debut of the film that got you the attention of the industry in the first place?

Daniel Espinosa’s “Snabba Cash” (or “Easy Money” as it’s called in English-speaking territories) was released almost two and a half years ago in its native Sweden, but it will finally get its U.S. release on the July 27th. Snapped up by The Weinstein Company after its premiere at the Berlin Film Festival two years ago, Bob and Harvey have been sat on the film ever since. But this wasn’t without reason. Never ones to miss a trick, TWC waited until the film’s director had a significantly higher profile following this year's “Safe House” to announce a release date. It probably didn’t hurt either that the film’s star, Joel Kinnaman, has popped up in “Safe House,” “The Killing” and “The Darkest Hour” since as well. Oh, and he was also cast as the new “Robocop.”

Topping the North American box office for two weeks in a row with his Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds-starring actioner “Safe House” is providing the film’s Swedish helmer Daniel Espinosa with more clout than ever before, and making the director’s past work of interest all over again.
