  • Les plus belles années d'une vie
    For all screenings:
    Fifty-three years after the phenomenon that was his international blockbuster A Man and a Woman, director Claude Lelouch lured French acting legends Jean-Louis Trintignant and Anouk Aimée out of retirement (he’s now 89 and she’s 88) for a sequel, reuniting 1966’s race-car driver Jean-Louis Duroc and the love of his life, Anne Gauthier, in this moving chronicle of their waning years. The formerly debonair Jean-Louis, confined to an assisted-care home, is growing more and more befuddled by old age, so his son (Antoine Sire) hatches a plan to bring the still spry Anne back into his father’s life. Lelouch makes delicious use of flashbacks to the first movie—and that great theme song—making this a time-travelling delight.

    ‘There is bittersweet humour and poignant insight here… Seeing these two French screen legends together again, probably for the last time, still creates an almost-tangible chemical fizz. Even at 87, Aimee remains a magnificent human sculpture, while Trintignant tugs the heartstrings as a once-beautiful man sunk into soulful ruin…The Best Years of a Life [the English title] strikes a deeper emotional chord because it is really more concerned with the looming mortality of its stars, its director and even its audience than with the fate of its fictional characters…’—Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter

  • Fahim
    For all screenings:
    The difficulties faced by refugee immigrants to France and their attempts to integrate into a new society serve as the backdrop to this affecting, based-on-real-life drama. Forced to flee their native Bangladesh, pre-teen chess obsessive Fahim Mohammad (Ahmed Assat) and his father arrive in the Parisian suburb of Créteil, where a new battle begins for them. While they await the approval of their political asylum application, they are under constant threat of deportation. Fahim joins the Créteil chess club and is taken under the wing of team coach Sylvain, a gruff, impressive, and very lively teacher (Gérard Depardieu, in a role tailor-made for the legend). What follows their first encounter strikes a touching balance between humour and drama as Fahim begins to climb the ranks in the under-12 category of tournament chess. Can he go all the way before the authorities deport him? (The real Fahim, now 20, is a FIDE master living in France.)

  • Duelles
    For all screenings:
    A cosy Brussels’ suburb, the early 1960s: best friends and neighbours Alice (Veerle Baetens) and Céline (Anne Coesens) are exemplars of bourgeois housewifery whose young sons Théo and Maxime (Jules Lefebvres and Luan Adam) are inseparable. When Maxime is killed in a tragic accident—while a helpless Alice looks on—the women’s friendship grinds to an abrupt halt. Soon things take a turn for the macabre when Alice, crushed by guilt, begins to have paranoid thoughts that Céline is out for revenge by killing her Théo… Director Olivier Masset-Depasse keeps a tight grip on things as he steers the film from very dark comedy to genuinely gripping thriller. And the sets and costumes—not to mention superb turns from Baetens and Coesens—are positively to die for (so to speak…)

    ‘[This] luxuriant psychological thriller is so redolent of the Master of Suspense’s [i.e. Hitchcock’s] style, and so gorgeously robed in Thierry Delettre’s ’60s costuming that at times one expects star Veerle Baetens (The Broken Circle Breakdown) to turn around and just be Tippi Hedren all of a sudden. But as much as this deliciously enjoyable, spiral-shaped descent into darkness wears that influence on its immaculately cut, three-quarter-length sleeve, it also represents a subversion of even Hitch’s most femme-centric titles… The film’s sharp eye for the dysfunctional dynamics of frenemy-ship is a dirty pleasure all its own, as these perfect housewives serve each other passive aggression like petits fours…’—Jessica Kiang, Variety

  • Maiden
    For all screenings:
    In 1989, Tracy Edwards made history by skippering the first all-female crew in the Whitbread Round the World yacht race, and she did so in the face of a tidal wave of sexism that seems almost unbelievable now. Alex Holmes’ gripping documentary makes use of some stunning archival footage from the race along with modern-day interviews with crewmembers to paint an immersive portrait of the obstacles Edwards and her crew had to overcome. The centrepiece is Edwards herself, whose testimony recreates the voyage, and whose home-movie footage of her preparations for a life at sea evoke admiration and, occasionally, awe at her determination.

    ‘Gender bias gets knocked backwards on its ass in this rousing doc… You don’t have to know port from starboard to build a rooting interest in the dazzling portrait that director Alex Holmes (Stop at Nothing: The Lance Armstrong Story) has put together… He’s raided the archives and included interviews with the participants, who look back in terror and joy on their adventure — as well as flipping the bird to the fools who said it couldn’t be done… Some of the footage, shot by crewmembers, radiates hold-your-breath suspense, especially when the Maiden pushes through the ice floes of the Southern Ocean, near Antarctica. You’ll have your heart in your mouth as the yacht enters the final stretch…’—Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

  • Madre
    For all screenings:
    After losing her six-year-old son on the same beach in south-western France where she now resides ten years later, the still-grieving Elena (Marta Nieto) spies the 16-year-old Jean (Jules Poirier), and something awakens inside her. Soon the two of them have struck up a friendship—much to the chagrin of the tongue-wagging locals who are scandalized by what they think is going on between them… After the worldwide success of his breakneck thriller The Realm, Rodrigo Sorogoyen does something intriguing here: he takes the whole of his 2017 Oscar-nominated short film, also named Madre, and incorporates it as this film’s prologue. It’s subject? A Madrid mother loses her grip when her 6-year-old son calls to tell her that Dad has abandoned him at the beach…

    ‘[Elena and Jean’s] rapport is beautifully uncomplicated for themselves but nonetheless rich and fascinating for the viewer, echoing not only specifically François Ozon’s Charlotte Rampling vehicle Under the Sand… but also the complex intergenerational relationships present in some of his other works… Sorogoyen is a master filmmaker. His work with his actors is impressive, with Nieto, in a fully bilingual performance, and Porier both natural yet nuanced. The director also constantly creates visuals — often using distorting lenses or compositions — and audio cues that give the story a more metaphorical dimension without ever distracting from the characters.’—Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter

  • Der Fall Collini
    For all screenings:
    The aged and grizzled Fabrizio Collini (the welcome return of legend Franco Nero) enters a German luxury hotel, murders elderly industrialist Hans Meyer (Manfred Zapatka), and promptly confesses to the police. Soon we are ensnared in a complex criminal case that has its roots in Nazi atrocities during WWII… Director Marco Kreuzpaintner skilfully adapts Ferdinand von Schirach’s international bestseller, written in part to exorcise the demons in von Schirach’s own background—his grandfather, Baldur von Schirach, was the head of the Hitler Youth…

    ‘A seamlessly crafted thriller with exemplary performances all round, The Collini Case [the English title]… will delight fans of the crime mystery genre. It’s beautifully shot, with cinematography by Jakub Bejnarowicz that really brings the locations to life, and Matz Müller’s sound design keeps the mood perfectly balanced in combination with some particularly impressive work where musical elements overlap… Shortlisted for Germany’s Oscar submission, this is a film that oozes quality yet never makes the mistake of hiding behind its technical excellence. It has something to say, and says it well.—Jennie Kermode, Eye for Film

  • A Perfectly Normal Family
    For all screenings:
    When first-time director Malou Reymann was 11 years old, her father announced that he was transitioning to a woman. This event forms the core of her drama, which takes the point of view of 10-year-old, football-loving Emma (a very effective Kaya Toft Loholt), a tomboy mortified and confused by her father Thomas’ (Mikkel Boe Følsgaard) decision to transition to Agnete. Injecting moments of lightness and humour into her essentially dramatic tale, Reymann marks herself as a director to keep an eye on in the future—a feeling that the jury at this year’s International Film Festival Rotterdam shared when it awarded her the VPRO Big Screen Award.
    ‘The meat of the story remains that of a personable young girl approaching all the usual difficulties of adolescence, suddenly forced to confront a monumental earthquake in her life without much support. On that level alone, A Perfectly Normal Family is an engagingly sincere picture of good people trying to negotiate barely charted territory to the best of their abilities… Summer sunshine casts a warm glow over almost all scenes, underscoring the “perfect” part of normal and making the rupture in Emma’s cloudless life that much more jarring.’—Jay Weissberg, Variety

    For all screenings:
    Considered the first Surinamese feature film after independence, Pim de la Parra's story about an Afro-Surinamese student leaving the Netherlands and returning to his homeland of Suriname to see his dying mother. The film shows the tense relationship between young Surinamese idealists and the former motherland. Will Roy (Borger Breeveld), an economics student, choose his white Dutch girlfriend Karina (Willeke Van Ammelrooy) or will he follow his heart and marry the Hindu Rubia (Diana Gangaram Panday) to help build Suriname? Roy is caught between two worlds…
