  • ' Baby Love '
    — Vincent Garenq

     Manu and Philippe face a dilemma that has challenged many other couples, gay or straight: one wants a baby, the other doesn’t. Since gay adoption is not an option in France, Manu convinces Fina, an illegal Argentinean to enter into a marriage of convenience with him. Fina will be a surrogate mother to Manu’s baby, and she gets her permit to live in France. The plan sounds fine, except that in life, things often do not turn out the way they’re planned. Featuring two marginalized social groups (gays and immigrants),Baby Love certainly is a romantic comedy with a twist.

     

  • ' Barbarian Invasion '
    — Denys Arcand

     A sequel to Denys Arcand’s relationships comedy, The Decline Of The American Empire, Barbarian Invasion tells the story of a Montreal history professor Remy whose body has been invaded by a fatal illness, and of the weeks and days leading up to his death. At centre stage is Remy’s relationship with Sebastien, his estranged son and his temperamental opposite. This is a film that sheds the spotlight on its characters than its plot; the deftly created, charismatic characters easily lead you into a world where universal themes of sex, ageing, family and faith are explored seriously and wittily.

  • ' Seraphine '
    — Martin Provost

    Seraphine de Senlis, an aging, overweight, penniless house cleaner in a small French town, was also a painter who believed she was channeling divine messages. The fruits and flowers she painted at first look merely decorative, but that on closer examination are charged with a marvelous and unsettling power. Martin Provost’s interpretation begins from the point just before her discovery, in the early 1910s, by the German critic and collector Wilhelm Uhde. Yolande Moreau’s passionate and fascinating performance won her a Cesar (Best Actress), one of the seven Cesars Seraphine was awarded.

     

  • ' Lorna’s Silence '
    — Brothers Dardenne

    Lorna is a young Albanian woman who has come to Belgium and married a drug addict named Claudy for Belgian citizenship. Lorna shows no feelings for her “husband”, because she dreams about being with Sokol, her real lover. But Fabio, who has arranged this marriage, has other plans for both Claudy and Lorna…another gritty tale of the modern day Europe from the Dardenne brothers, whose subjective camera rarely leaves Lorna, thus instilling within the audience a psychological kinship with her, helping us to feel the inescapable world in which she travels. Winner of Best Screenplay at Cannes.

     

  • ' Waltz with Bashir '
    — Ari Folman

    Ari Folman was a soldier, and the animated Waltz with Bashir is a confessional account of his experience as a young soldier during the 1982 Israeli-Lebanese war. Structured like a conventional documentary, with Folman visiting old army friends and piecing together what they saw and remember, he gradually fits together a puzzle with the massacre at the center and his witnesses in concentric rinds at various distances. This is a brilliant piece showing the psychic damage of war.

     

     

  • ' The Science of Sleep '
    — Michel Gondry

    French filmmaker Michel Gondry proves that his eccentric imagination remains intact even without Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) as a collaborator. This is a love story involving Stephane and Stephanie, both aspiring artists working at menial jobs. Whimsical and irrepressibly inventive, the film is dominated by its extraordinary dream sequels expressed in stop-motion animations that echo Terry Gilliam. Call it weird, but you can’t help loving it.

     

     

  • ' Don’t Move '
    — Sergio Castellitto

    A distinctly deglamourized Penélope Cruz gives one of her bravest performances as a destitute woman who has an affair with a married man. As top surgeon Timoteo watches his colleagues battle to save his teenage daughter who is seriously injured in a road accident, his mind flashes back to the sweltering summer when he met Italia, a tramp living on a building site, and their illicit romance. Timoteo has almost nothing in common with Italia, and yet he’s drawn to her, and the film captures well how lust slowly blossoms into affection. He promises Italia he’ll make the final split with his wife, but then fate strikes, with tragedy close behind…

  • ' Glamorous Youth '
    — Philip Yung

    Philip Yung’s debut, produced by Ann Hui, centres on Hong, a typical teenager facing all sort of problems a teenager would encounter: a girlfriend that’s never pleased, a father what won’t stop drinking and a mother that won’t stop watching TV. Frustrated with life, Hong seeks consolation in a mainland prostitute. Question is: does that solve his problems? Using largely improvised dialogues, Glamorous Youth exudes a refreshing degree of honesty as it explores issues of school, relationships and family in a way that teenagers can recognise and relate to.

     

     

  • ' An Education '
    — Lone Scherfig

    Written by Nick Hornby and based on a memoir by Lynn Barber, An Education is a coming-of-age drama that sees a teenage girl in the early 1960s London hungry for adult life.When Jenny meets David, she sees him as a shortcut to all the beautiful things she hopes to obtain through an Oxford education and a lucrative career.This may look like a romance, but Jenny’s real romance is with the outside world. The film is a breath of fresh air in its non-judgmental approach, and Carey Mulligan’s self-assured performance establishes her firmly as another British actress to watch out for.
