  • Das schweigende Klassenzimmer
    For all screenings:
    It is 1956 and East Germany is still five years away from the total isolation caused by the building of the Wall. In the wake of the violently quashed Hungarian Revolution against that country’s Soviet-dominated communist government, East German high-school students Theo (Leonard Scheicher) and Kurt (Tom Gramenz), having learned of the uprising while visiting the West, convince their classmates to observe a moment of silence in honour of the Hungarian dead. The repercussions arising from this quiet moment will change the lives of all involved… Based on a true story, Lars Kraume’s intelligent drama (English title: The Silent Revolution) is a timely reminder of how even the most seemingly innocent of gestures made under a repressive regime can take on an outsized political significance—and irrevocably alter the lives of those involved.

    ‘The Silent Revolution, also written by Kraume and adapted from the autobiographical book by Dietrich Garstka, deftly lays out the story’s complex socio-political and historical background. The differences between 1950s East and West Germany and between post-war Germany and the recent Nazi past all surface organically, with the writer-director impressively avoiding any kind of preachiness.’—Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter

    For all screenings:
    The sheer rock face known as El Capitan in California’s Yosemite Valley has been considered the ne plus ultra for ‘free solo’ rock climbers (‘free solo’ means climbing alone and without the benefit of any equipment except some chalk and a good pair of climbing shoes). At the heart of Jimmy Chin and Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi’s documentary on their friend Alex Honnold’s attempt to be the first person to accomplish a free solo climb of El Capitan is a question that is at once both simple and profound: What drives Honnold—and, by extrapolation, anyone—to want to repeatedly risk life and limb in pursuit of a quixotic goal? Chin, a climber himself, and Chai Vasarhelyi delve deep into Honnold’s personality in the two-year lead up to the spectacular attempt, uncovering the multiple layers—some a bit disturbing—that comprise Honnold’s psyche. And the cinematography when Honnold finally takes to the rock face will literally leave you gasping. This is definitely a film that demands to be seen on the big screen.

    ‘This is daring, dangerous and dizzying stuff… The climbing cinematography by Chin and his team is vertiginous and literally breathtaking… But it’s the riddle of Honnold himself that drives the film. He’s a wryly funny and deeply intelligent character, and soon your heart will be in your mouth every time he trusts his life to a single toenail…’—Helen O‘Hara, Empire

    For all screenings:
    Using the court case as a framework, we learn how it came to this in two long flashbacks. In an energetic montage of observationally filmed scenes, Capharnaüm examines – in part through the problems of an ‘illegal’ Ethiopian cleaner who shelters Zain when he runs away from home – the fate of the large group of undocumented people trying to survive in and around The doctor thinks Zain is about twelve years old, but nobody knows for sure; he wasn’t registered at birth. And this is not the only pretty basic thing missing from the chaotic lives of Zain and his younger brothers and sisters: they also lack a habitable home, sufficient food, protection, love. So Zain takes his parents to court. His complaint: that they brought him into the world.
    Beirut. Street-savvy and wise beyond his years, the sad gaze of young lead Zain Al Rafeaa betrays his real-life experiences as a Syrian refugee in the Lebanese metropolis.

  • The Favourite
    For all screenings:
    Greek enfant terrible Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster, The Killing of a Sacred Deer) continues his dissection of the human condition with this blackly humorous period piece set in the sumptuous court of Queen Anne (as played, hilariously, by a rouge-cheeked Olivia Colman) in 18th-century England. As the semi-mad queen spends her days conducting duck races while her country is in the midst of war with France, her most trusted advisor, Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough (a wickedly good Rachel Weisz), and the Duchess’ new servant (Emma Stone) themselves go to war over just who will secure the role of queen’s favourite and, by proxy, exert control over the whole of England… Lanthimos, characteristically, turns the tropes of the period drama upside down, playing what would be taken deadly seriously by other directors for laughs, and delivering comic set-pieces with a solemnly straight face. Drawing comparisons to both Barry Lyndon, for Robbie Ryan’s gorgeous cinematography, and Marie Antoinette, for the way it reinvents the period piece for a modern audience, The Favourite continues Lanthimos’ ongoing quest to uphold the modernist creed and ‘make it new!’ The film captured the Special Grand Jury Prize and Best Actress award (for Colman) at the 2018 Venice Film Festival.
    ‘[Lanthimos’] fabulously entertaining tragicomedy… is a juicy power tangle connecting three women in the royal court of early 18th-century England, played by a divine trio that bounces off one another with obvious relish… In addition to its sumptuous visuals and delectable wit, this must-see [film]… offers a balanced triumvirate of formidable female leads rich in surprising character shadings.’—David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

    For all screenings:
    Peter Farrelly—one half of the brotherly duo responsible for such goofy, gross-out comedies as Dumb and Dumber and There’s Something About Mary—reverses course 180 degrees with this seriocomic period piece that is both moving and funny by turns. It is 1962 New York, and erudite African-American classical pianist Dr Don Shirley (Moonlight’s Mahershala Ali) is about to embark on a concert tour that will take him into the heart of the racist South. Enter Tony ‘the Lip’ Vallelonga (Viggo Mortensen), a tough Italian-American bouncer who takes on the job of Shirley’s driver—and protector… Both Mortensen and Ali shine in this odd-couple pairing, and Farrelly’s sensitive direction shows that, despite being set almost 60 years ago, Green Book (the title refers to a guide to venues in the South that were safe for African-Americans) has much to say about the America of here and now. The film won the Audience Award for most popular film at the 2018 Toronto International Film Frestival.

    ‘A touching and meaningful look at race and class in America… and a throwback to another era of Hollywood filmmaking, resurrected in the 21st century with two of the best actors working today… Farrelly tackles the material with a confidence that makes each beat count… [and] cinematographer Sean Porter… excels at capturing middle America as a rich tapestry of smoky bars and empty lots.’—Eric Kohn, IndieWire

  • Mary Queen of Scots
    For all screenings:
    Written with panache by House of Cards mastermind Beau Willimon and rousingly directed by theatre veteran Josie Rourke, Mary Queen of Scots is a riveting 16th-century period piece focusing on the rivalry between England’s Queen Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie) and the titular heir to the Scottish throne, here embodied by the magnificent Saoirse Ronan. With her crown and her very life under threat, Mary seeks protection from her cousin Elizabeth in the south—but the English queen is wary of Mary’s ambitions… Gorgeously photographed and filled with court intrigue, Rourke’s artful debut feature hums along at a breathless pace and never fails to entertain while bringing a fascinating slice of British history to vibrant life.

    ‘A note-perfect performance from [Saoirse Ronan], the three-time Oscar nominee, charges a darkly compelling [tale]… Rourke makes for an accomplished filmmaker, artfully crafting some stunning imagery and pacing her story like a thriller… The film’s most thrilling pleasure is a show-stopping lead performance from Ronan, who at 24 is quickly becoming one of the industry’s most consistently impressive young actors.’—Benjamin Lee, The Guardian

  • Un Amour Impossible
    For all screenings:
    Beginning in 1958 and covering decades, Catherine Corsini’s smart, assertive adaptation of controversial French author Christine Angot’s autobiographical bestseller traces the relationship between lower-middle-class Rachel (Virginie Efira, a revelation) and upper-class intellectual Philippe (Niels Schneider) from its passionate beginnings through the birth of a child (played by four different actresses over the decades) and into areas of dysfunction both disturbing and all-too-believable. As Rachel raises her child alone and endures an on-again, off-again relationship with the haughty Philippe—who refuses to give his name to their daughter—Corsini does the near impossible: she carves out a trenchant analysis of women’s roles in modern French society and a critique of male attitudes while making a film that never fails to engross. For this, she can thank Efira, who is never less than marvellous.

    ‘A superior and very accessible melodrama… This is the most accomplished and ambitious film to date from a director who has frequently explored female themes from a committed gender-politics perspective, but also employing an approachable, mainstream art-house aesthetic… The acting is terrific. Lead Efira… shows herself more than capable of a heavyweight dramatic role, subtly maturing from romantic 20s to careworn middle age.’—Jonathan Romney, Screen

    For all screenings:
    Finally, it’s here! After waiting for almost ten years—that’s when rumours of the film first began circulating—fans of the legendary rock group Queen and its even more legendary frontman Freddie Mercury get the big-budget biopic they deserve. The main focus is on the life and times of lead singer Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara), and Rami Malek, the star of Mr. Robot, embodies the singer to an uncanny degree. Mercury first met guitarist Brian May (played here by Gwilym Lee) and drummer Roger Taylor (Ben Hardy) in 1970, while he was attending Ealing Art College in London. By July of that year, they were performing under the name Queen, at Mercury’s suggestion, and the rest, as they say, is history.
    Bryan Singer’s dazzling film charts the early years—they didn’t become internationally famous until 1974—before thrusting us into the whirlwind lives of the megastars the group members became. Along the way, he slows down to detail the recording of what many consider to be the greatest pop single of all time, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, before culminating with the group’s show-stealing performance—spectacularly reproduced here—at the 1985 Live Aid concert, a greatest hits set that a 2005 music industry poll ranked as ‘the greatest rock performance of all time’. What a journey it was!
