The Festival of 1994

Quentin Tarantino has visited the Festival twice. In Stockholm in 1992 he wins his first Bronze Horse with »Reservoir Dogs«. During that visit, he's working on the script for »Pulp Fiction« and in the original script, Travolta and Jackson discusses a visit to McDonald's in Stockholm, but that dialogue is never included in the film. Two years later, he wins his second Bronze Horse for that particular film. Stockholm loves Tarantino and Tarantino loves Stockholm. He watches a lot of movies when he's here and takes the opportunity to buy Wong Kar-wai's »Chunking Express« for Warner Bros.
