LOVELESS

Zvyagintsev's (Leviathan) take on modern-day Russia. An ongoing bitter divorce and a subsequent missing child make a compelling, uncompromising remarkable work.

HOTEL SALVATION

Relatable and delightful, this subtle Indian comedy-drama combines wit, empathy and humanity, as it celebrates life on the edge of death.

LOST IN PARIS

Paris set French physical comedy from Fiona Gordon and Dominique Abel (The Fairy, Rumba). A film that 'moves to its own loopy life-affirming beat'. Charming and funny.

THE 400 BLOWS

In this beacon of the French new Wave all elements contribute to its success: poignant music, the grey streets of Paris and the 27 year old Truffaut’s filmic structure, conveying both freedom and constraint.

WONDERSTRUCK

Visually gorgeous tale of two deaf children in separate time zones searching for a lost parent. Like Scorsese’s HUGO,  an adaptation of a Brian Selznick novel.

ISLE OF DOGS

Another Wes Anderson (Grand Budapest Hotel) classic- a boy searches for his lost dog in fictional future Japan. An animated love letter to dogs. Warm and zany.

THE RED TURTLE

Outstanding, visually gorgeous Studio Ghibli animation of a shipwrecked man on a desert island, with a red turtle for company. Poetic storytelling at its fulfilling best.

RIDE THE HIGH COUNTRY

A horse racing a camel! A Chinese restaurant! A cop on the street! This is a Western? Undoubtedly - and a magnificent elegy for the Old West.

WESTERN

Despite the title Griesbach’s film is set in Eastern Europe with German builders in rural Bulgaria working on a hydro-electric project. Two culturally specific masculinities! It’s not long before prejudices and suspicions arise.

IN BETWEEN

explores the life styles and problems of three flat-sharing women in Tel Aviv, all outsiders a Palestinian. a Christian and a Muslim. A spiky treat.

EVERYBODY KNOWS

Favourite director Asghar Farhadi (A Separation, The Salesman), favourite actors Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem and Ricardo Darin in a Spanish thriller. All the ingredients for a fabulous evening!

SHOPLIFTERS

Humanist Japanese director Hirokazu's (My Little Sister) latest, slow-burning but ultimately rewarding film, concerns a family on society's fringe, whose story becomes apparent in a warm and stunning way. Winner at Cannes.

COLD WAR

1950s Poland is the setting for a passionate love story across different backgrounds. 18 minute standing ovation when shown at Cannes. Pawel Pawlikowski directs.
