The best of Gondry's 'sweding' film contest

'Sweding' looks set to be the most entertaining internet craze of 2008. The idea behind 'sweding' is simple. You simply re-make something, be it a film or a web page, from scratch using whatever you can get your hands on.

The concept comes from French director Michel Gondry's 2008 film 'Be Kind, Rewind'. In the film Jack Black and Mos Def have to re-record classic movies to replace the VHS tapes at the video shop where they work. On the film's website Gondry asked fans to 'swede' their favourite films.

His calls have been answered ten fold and Gondry has since launched a 'sweding' festival on dailymotion which showcases 'sweded' versions of classic films from 2001: A Space Odyssey to The Empire Strikes Back.

Amongst our favourites are an unbelievable version of Tron, a surreal take on Jaws, a French version of Star Wars and a plastercine version of Pulp Fiction which looks like Tony Hart's Morph meets Tarantino.
