4 Months, 3 Weeks & 2 Days: Hailed as a modern masterpiece, this Palme d’Or-winning film is at the forefront of the resurgent Romanian cinema and, as with The Lives of Others, chronicles the dying days of the Communist regime. Brilliantly observed, superbly performed and directed with quite astonishing flair, this tense, poignant and shocking film centres on the friendship between two girls, which is tested to its absolute limits on a night that neither will ever forget.
The Child: A powerful, gripping and suspenseful drama that packs a devastating emotional force, 'The Child' stars Jeremie Renier, who is outstanding as Bruno, a young petty thief who has fathered a baby with his 18 year old girlfriend Sonia. But when the temptation of easy money leads him to commit an act of shocking recklessness, its grave repercussions force a remorseful Bruno into a desperate and dangerous attempt to make amends. Winner of the prestigious 2005 Palme d'Or -¬ placing Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne among the few filmmakers to have twice won the Cannes Film Festival's highest honour -¬ 'The Child' is a compassionate yet unsentimental account of guilt and redemption.
Underground: This epic tale of love, friendship and betrayal set against the complex historical backdrop of the former Yugoslavia, is regarded by many as the finest achievement of Emir Kusturica’s remarkable career. Following the story of two friends and the woman with whom they are both in love, ‘Underground’ is a visionary allegory of Balkan vitality, energy, humour and the will to survive.
