    For all screenings:
    Hans Petter Morland (In Order of Disappearance), Norway’s most accomplished director, began working with the great Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgård way back in 1995 on Zero Degrees Kelvin, and the duo re-teams here for the fifth time, resulting in another gripping drama. On the cusp of the new millennium, Skarsgård’s Trond, a recent widower, decides to live out what remains of his life in the solitary Norwegian woods of his youth. No sooner does he settle in than he is recognized by an elderly neighbour, cuing a flashback to the pivotal summer of 1948, when Trond (now played by Jon Ranes) was 15 and felling trees, riding horses, and living rough with his father. What follows is ‘a hugely accomplished meditation on life, guilt and responsibility… Moland crafts a gripping character drama spanning generations… His confident filmmaking sweeps the audience into a tactile, sensorial world of strong visuals and unexpected musical intensifiers… One of the pleasures of this extremely sensual film is the way it elicits physical sensations in the viewer through expressive camerawork, cutting and sound effects. Dramatic moments are signalled by a low rumbling like an avalanche arriving. While the ever-changing spectacle of nature filmed by cinematographer Rasmus Videbaek enchants the eye, it is intensified by Klaus Kaae’s sweetly original score.’—Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter

    For all screenings:
    Real life Fox News anchors Megyn Kelly and Gretchen Carlson are perfectly portrayed by Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman, respectively, in Jay Roach’s searing drama about how these two powerful women were instrumental in bringing down the loathsome and corrupt (and now dead) head of Fox News, Roger Ailes (an eerily awesome and unrecognizable John Lithgow in heavy prosthetic make-up). With the marvellous Margot Robbie (so good in Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood and playing a fictionalised composite character here), the sizzling triumvirate of strong females in this first serious—yet often scabrous and bitingly funny—post-#MeToo dissection of sexual harassment in the workplace will work its magic on you.

    ‘Explodes on the screen… A ferociously entertaining dramatisation of how an unlikely group of women exposed and deposed media titan Roger Ailes, it is as harrowing as it is triumphant in its depiction of the way it all came to pass… Writer Charles Randolph, winner of an Oscar for The Big Short, …has written a smart, fast-moving script that feels behind-the-scenes real, a scenario that will both make you laugh and cause the laughter to freeze in your throat…’—Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

    For all screenings:
    Both very smart and very funny, Nicolas Bedos’ marvellous dramatic comedy takes the idea of time travel, grounds it in the here and now (and then), and gives it a sexy and provocative dose of flesh and blood. Cartoonist Victor, (the great Daniel Auteuil), his marriage—to Fanny Ardant’s Marianne—in a shambles and his best days seemingly behind him, becomes intrigued by his son’s friend Antoine’s (Guillaume Canet) latest successful enterprise. Antoine’s ‘Time Travellers’ troupe offers clients the chance to go back in time to any moment they wish, and the TT team of actors and technicians guarantees a completely realistic immersion in the era selected. Victor accepts Antoine’s offer of a free trial—and chooses to go back to the day in 1974 when he originally met Marianne in a raucous Lyon bistro. What follows is too delicious to spoil, but let’s just say this: when the shaggy-haired ‘younger’ Victor goes back to said Lyon bistro and meets waitress Margot (Doria Tillier), who happens to be Antoine’s partner when she’s not acting, more than just sparks fly…

    ‘Vastly entertaining… witty, sexy, and original… Bedos successfully jumps through the many creative hoops he sets and in the process pulls off the most thoroughly entertaining big-screen French farce in a very long time.’—Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter

  • Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love
    For all screenings:
    When poet, musician, and Canadian legend Leonard Cohen visited the idyllic Greek island of Hydra in 1960, he fell in love with both it and a Norwegian woman named Marianne Ihlen. Soon, he was living there and using the bohemian lifestyle to begin the transition from poet to singer-songwriter, citing Marianne as the ‘muse’ (a term now thoroughly discredited) behind the songs that catapulted him to international fame—which, in turn, led him to leave Marianne behind… Veteran documentary filmmaker Nick Broomfield (Aileen Wuornos: The Selling of a Serial Killer, Battle for Haditha), who himself became friends with Marianne in the ’60s, crafts a look back both at this special relationship and the countercultural times within which it flowered. The result is an entertaining and evocative time capsule that mixes vintage concert footage and behind-the-scenes glimpses with the reminiscences of close friends and colleagues.

    ‘Broomfield’s riveting documentary gives us a vivid snapshot of the early 1960s and a complicated, mysterious love story… [T]his is a drama about finding yourself—that well-known 60s trope. Ihlen found herself through emotional openness, and Cohen ecstatically found himself through switching from literature to music. It’s a dramatic example of an artist suddenly discovering what it was he was born to do…’—Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

    For all screenings:
    Winner of Best Non-Fiction Feature at the 2019 New York Film Critics Circle Awards, Ljubomir Stefanov and Tamara Kotsevska’s quietly moving and revelatory documentary follows the life of Hatidze Muratova, a middle-aged beekeeper living with her aged and ill mother, Nazife, in a mountainous area of Macedonia. Hatidze is a careful and caring person who tends to her hives with love—‘Half for me and half for you’, she says to her bees as she harvests the honey that provides her with the meagre income she needs to care for herself and her mother. Then the Sam family moves to a house nearby, and patriarch Hussein Sam threatens Hatidze’s age-old lifestyle in an effort to extract more cash from the bees…

    ‘A Macedonian bee-keeper may not be the documentary subject you think you need in your life, but this gorgeous and closely observed film makes the case that it is. Playing more like a particularly thoughtful indie drama than the usual carefully narrated documentary, it’s the story of a vanishing way of life, in a forgotten corner of Europe, but also a character study of extraordinary intimacy and feeling… The filmmakers spent years with their fascinating, complicated heroine and let their images speak for themselves: there are no caption cards here, no narration, just Hatidze’s endlessly expressive face. But the time they lavished on her, and the care and attention they gave to the edit, pays off in intimate storytelling and stunning cinematography.’—Helen O’Hara, Empire

    For all screenings:
    Vincent Cassel and Reda Kateb star in Éric Toledano and Olivier Nakache’s (Intouchables) compelling drama. Based on the true story of Stéphane Benhamou, a Parisian who cares for those teens and young adults whose severe autism puts them outside the purview of the French state, the film immerses us in the day-to-day lives of the caregivers and their charges, and conveys the constant struggles faced by both groups. As Bruno (the Benhamou character), Cassel is a fireball of determination, constantly battling for the funding he needs; Kateb plays his partner Malik, who runs a centre that trains poor kids from the banlieues… With heartfelt conviction and a charged sense of immediacy, Toledano and Nakache convey the heroic efforts of a few good people determined to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves.

    ‘Powerful and accomplished… The Specials [the English-language title] is a rare film that comes both from the heart and reality: it’s a potent mix, which allows access to a hidden subject yet welcomes the audience in with grace and humour.’—Fionnuala Halligan, Screen

    For all screenings:
    Fifty-five years after his scorching Fists in the Pocket announced the arrival of a huge directorial talent, the ever-political Italian master Marco Bellocchio (Good Morning, Night), now 80, returns with this handsome, decades-spanning, and continent-hopping operatic drama retelling the true story of Tommaso Buscetta (a riveting Pierfrancesco Favino), the Mafia don whose courtroom testimony between 1986 and 1992 marked the beginning of the end of the Mafia’s stranglehold on Italian society. Encompassing more than 20 years of Italian history—the story begins in the 1970s and includes the notorious car-bomb murder of prosecuting judge Giovanni Falcone—the film boldly takes us from Italy to Rio and back again, as Buscetta comes to realise the error of his ways and makes the fateful decision to turn informer.

    ‘A definitive cinematic account of an important period of modern Italian life… There really are some show-stopping scenes: perhaps especially when Tommaso and Cristina are taken out over the ocean in separate helicopters and Tommaso is made to watch as his terrified wife is dangled out, about to be dropped… The Traitor [the English title] is acted and directed throughout with confidence and force… [This is] big, bold, confident filmmaking.’—Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

    For all screenings:
    Films from the Indian region of Assam are rare commodities, and an Assamese film made by a woman is even rarer still. For this reason, Bulbul Can Sing—the third film from female director Rima Das, and the third she has set in her native Assamese village of Kalardiya—is a cause for celebration. Like her inseparable friends Bonny (Bonita Thakuriya) and Suman (Manoranjoan Das), 15-year-old Bulbul (Arnali Das) is feeling her oats; she’s on the cusp of womanhood and experiencing her first schoolyard romance. But the patriarchal norms of her culture—everything from skirt length to hairstyle is monitored—mean that she must keep things secret. When the secret gets out, things take a turn to the dark side…

    ‘Das draws her inspiration from real-life people and places, but turns their lives into compelling fiction. Her new film… has a pleasing simplicity and realism…[The film] offers an affectionate, insightful, honest look at an ordinary young woman growing up in a male-dominated society. Refreshingly, her world is not as closed as one might imagine… Das is a one-woman film production team, doing the camerawork, editing and production design herself, as well as writing, directing and producing. The result is strongly personal and expressive.’—Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter

    For all screenings:
    After the international spectacles of Snowpiercer and Okja, master filmmaker Bong Joon Ho returns to his Korean roots with this suspenseful, satirical black comedy—winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes—which functions both as a devastating social critique and a brilliantly executed exercise in pure cinema à la Alfred Hitchcock. Kim Ki-taek (Bong regular Song Kang Ho) and his family of reprobates live in a squalid basement apartment, which floods when it rains, and eke out a living folding (badly) boxes for a pizza joint. When son Ki-woo (Choi Woo-sik) lies his way into a job tutoring the teen daughter of the rich Park family, the stage is set for the whole Kim family to insinuate itself into the Park’s luxurious home. What follows is too delicious to spoil here, but rest assured it is brilliantly unpredictable, ingeniously conceived, and gorgeously designed.

    ‘Another wickedly clever tale from the director about class and survival, Parasite is a brilliant tonal juggling act that defies easy genre categorization. It fuses dark satire, suspense, and tragedy with incisive social commentary. It’s an exhilarating rollercoaster ride that keeps you guessing at every sharp turn, and by the end, leaves you a bit paralyzed by its magnificence.’—Oliver Whitney, GQ
