  • ' 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.

     

     

  • ' After Life '
    — Hirokazu Koreeda

    What is the ONE memory that you choose to carry into the afterlife? In this warm, evocative film, 22 people are given a week to answer this question. The chosen memory is re-created and filmed, and it will become their sole companion while the rest will be erased. The choices are a mix of expectation and surprises, perhaps just like life. Koreeda’s vision of limbo looks like an ordinary train station; in its ordinariness, the afterlife has never been more fascination.

     

  • ' Hana '
    — Hirokazu Koreeda

    This is not a samurai film featuring flashing swords or bodies leaping over walls. In Edo in 1702, the young samuari Soza, who can hardly handle a sword, comes to a small village to avenge for his late father. When he finally crosses paths with his father’s attacker, now a family man living with a widow and her child, he questions the Samurai code of honor and the ethics of revenge… combining philosophical thoughts and earthy humour, Hana also stuns with brilliant cinematography and flawless sets and costumes.

     

  • ' Black Ice '
    — Petri Kotwica

     Black ice is a reference to that almost invisible layer of ice that forms on roads and can send you spinning into a snowbank when you least expect it. Relationships are a bit like that in the Finnish director Petri Kotwica’s third feature, which won five major Finnish Jussi awards including Best Actress for OutiMäenpää as Saara, a gynecologist who engineers her way into her husband’s affair.By conjuring an atmosphere as chilling as the frozen landscape, Kotwica vigilantly turns soap opera material into an engaging psychological thriller.

  • ' Yossi and Jagger '
    — Eytan Fox

    The pressures and privations of military life have rarely been portrayed in as much telling detail as they are in Yossi and Jagger, a touching portrait of a group of bored Israeli soldiers stationed at a cramped army base on the Israeli-Lebanese border. Two young commanders, Yossi and Jagger carry on a passionate but discreet affair. While the carefree Jagger wants Yossi to leave the military with him so that they can start a new life together, Yossi finds it a challenge to not play by the rules. As they embark on a mission one night, it looks like their relationship also reaches a breaking point.

     

  • ' At the End of Daybreak '
    — Yuhang Ho

    Twenty three year old Tuck Chai drifts along in life, spending his days helping out in his mother’s shop and nights riding his motorcycle and shooting pool with friends. Nothing excites him much except for Ying, a wealthy teenager Tuck is secretly dating. When their relationship is discovered, lives of the two families are thrown into turmoil. Inspired by a tabloid crime story, At the End of Daybreak is a tale of class divides, tragic love and the loss of innocence. Wai Ying-hung shows great emotional depth as the well-meaning yet inadequate whiskey-loving single mother.

     

  • ' Talk to Her '
    — Pedro Almodóvar Caballero

    For those who came to know the great Pina Bausch a tad too late, here’s one reason to see Talk to Her. Marco and Benigno are both in the audience of a Pina Bausch performance, but neither is aware of the other’s presence. A few months’ later, they meet in a private clinic, both concerned about a woman in coma. For someone who supposedly can’t hear you, what can you say to her? You simply keep talking, because you don’t stop loving her regardless she is conscious or not. One of Almodova’s most emotionally affective films.

     

  • ' 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.

     

  • ' The Counterfeiters '
    — Stefan Ruzowitzky

    In return for soft beds, good meals, acceptable working conditions, and the chance for a longer life, skillful counterfeiter Salomon Sorowitsch was willing to work for the Nazis. His fellow prisoners, Adolf Burger (whose memoir the film is based on), had a different opinion. Ruzowitzky depicts the care and attention to detail that went into the counterfeiting operation and presents a universal moral dilemma: is one’s own survival the most important priority of all? Provocative and compelling, Counterfeiter won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film.
