  • ' 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.

  • ' 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.

  • ' Last Chance Harvey '
    — Joel Hopkins

    This is the worst day of Harvey Shine’s life. This is the best day of his life. First he loses his job. Then he learns that his daughter rather have her stepfather giving her away at her wedding. Then, he meets Kate at a pub, and together they spend an incredible 24 hours. Last Chance Harvey unites Hoffman and Thompson (both delivering pitch-perfect performances) in a heartwarming film set against the backdrop of the London Thames. Nothing lasts forever, but when something wonderful comes along, never ever let it go.

     

  • ' Soundless Wind Chime '
    — Kit Hung

    Nominated for the 2009 Berlin Film Festival Teddy Award, Soundless Wind Chime chronicles the story between Ricky, a Chinese, and Pascal, a Swiss. Like any other couple they struggle though good times and rough patches. Years after the relationship ended, Ricky goes to Switzerland and encounters Ueli who looks just like Pascal. As this new relationship grows, we also learn about what really happened to Pascal and Ricky….

     

  • ' City of Life and Death '
    — Lu Chuan

     Lu Chuan (Kekexili) takes an unflinching look at the atrocities that took place during the Nanjing Massacre that began in 1937, where mass amount of Chinese civilians were executed and thousands of women were captured and raped by the Japanese army. Lu does not dwell on sentimental excess or nationalist indignation; he simply lets the events unfold in a matter-of-fact manner. Shot austerely in black and white, the result is a balanced and determined look at the horrors of war.

     

  • ' Lives of the Others '
    — Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck

     Lives of the Others offers more than a rare and fascinating snapshot of life behind the Berlin Wall.It’s 1984 in East Germany and GerdWiesler, a master interrogator, is tasked to monitor every single detail in the life of playwright Dreyman and his girlfriend. Ironically, his surveillance has led him to sympathize with his targets and Wiesler risks violating the law and jeopardizing his career to protect the couple. The late Ulrich Muhe is magnificent as Wiesler, whose gradual transition from loyal drone to actual human being is where the film is most powerful.

     

  • ' Hear Me '
    — Fen-Fen Cheng

     Tian Kuo goes from place to place delivering rice sets to hungry customers. His daily routine is never the same again the day he falls for Yang Yang, whose sister is practising swimming for Deaflympics. Tian Kuo cannot talk to Yang Yang, but feelings can be expressed and felt through many other ways. Cheng Fen-fen’s sincere portrayal of an unusual puppy love is sure to leave you feeling warm and fuzzy inside.

     

     

  • ' Exam '
    — 史都華海澤丁

    Sequestered in a room, eight candidates are asked to complete the final test for a mysterious job. In Reservoir Dogs like fashion, each is given a nickname according to skin/haircolour. Hazeldine uses his characters to explore how people turn against each other in pressurized environments. Razor sharp editing of the events that unfold in a slick, pristine exam room bathed in ever-changing colours, Hazeldine’s debut is intriguing and nerve-wrecking. The Apprentice? That’s so Disneyland.

     

  • ' Greenberg '
    — Noah Baumbach

    Noah Baumbach’s favorite terrain is deconstructing life’s emotional ups and downs with characters so narcissistic and self-delusional they make everyone uncomfortable. In Greenberg, he finds the ugly selfishness of neurosis. Playing a rarely seen non-comic role, Ben Stiller is Roger Greenberg, who once dumped his band, fled Los Angeles and went to New York. Now, recovering from a breakdown, Greenberg returns to LA. As he house-sits his brother’s house and looks after the dog, he meets the family’s assistant Florence and the two develop a relationship that can be defined neither as friendship or romance.
