Marooned in an old people’s home when her son is killed, Junn, a grieving Chinese woman speaks no English. Her only chance of escape is Richard (an excellent Ben Wishaw), who she doesn’t know was her son’s gay lover. He tries to help her by hiring an interpreter so she can talk to her ageing Romeo (Peter ‘To The Manor Born’ Bowles). A deft, funny script that is beautifully performed all round makes for one of those little gems that’s so easily overlooked. A delicate, thoughtful, moving film about finding the things which bring us together.
The cheerful, charming, story of sprightly Allan who disappears from the old people’s home on his 100th birthday and soon has the police and a gang of Nazis on his tail. Through Allan’s picaresque journey we learn the story of his life and his impact on world events. The great pleasure he gets from blowing things up leads via mental hospital, the Spanish Civil War, the Manhattan Project, and the Gulag, to ridiculous encounters with Franco, Stalin, Reagan, and finally to a career as a double agent. A wonderfully entertaining shaggy dog story that neatly balances dark humour and playful storytelling.
One year in the life of a family of reindeer herders in Finnish Lapland. A study of hard work, hard earned leisure, and an intricate bond between man and nature. Brothers Aarne and Lasse Aatsinki are cowboys of the Arctic. Quiet but good natured, dare-devilish but humble, rugged but gentle, and exceptionally knowledgeable when it comes to their little slice of wilderness. Between their uncanny understanding of the landscape and their reindeer on the one hand, and their heavy reliance on snowmobiles and helicopters on the other, the herders have been categorized as beacons of sustainability and demons of environmentalism – in essence, poster children for simplicity and technology alike. Their story raises weighty questions about what it means to live with the land and invites audience members to reconsider their own assumptions about technology, food production, and, most critically, man’s place in nature.
