10 Timer til Paradis

10 Timer til Paradis (Teddy Bear) is a 2012 Danish film starring Kim Kold as a Danish bodybuilder who travels to Thailand to find love. The film was directed by Mads Matthiesen and written by Matthiesen and Martin Zandvliet. Teddy Bear is based on Matthiesen’s 2007 short film Dennis, which starred Kold in the same role.Director Frank Corsaro, after seeing the short film, encouraged Matthiesen to turn it into a full-length film. Matthiesen decided to cast mostly non-actors in the film, in order to give the film as realistic a tone as possible. Kold himself had been a non-actor when Matthiesen cast him in Dennis, although since then he appeared in other films and television shows. Matthiesen won the directing award in the category “World Cinema – Dramatic” for Teddy Bear at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. The film was also nominated for the Grand Jury Prize in the same category, at the Sundance Festival.
