R254 Discovery Miles 2 540 Ships in 7 - 13 working days

Jean De Florette
City-dweller Jean de Florette (Gerard Depardieu) moves his family to the Provence countryside in the 1920s to forge a new life as a farmer. But his proud, cocky neighbouring rival Le Papet (Yves Montand) schemes with his simple-minded nephew Ugolin (Daniel Auteuil) to acquire some nearby land ensuring the novice owner never discovers an all-important natural spring on the property.

A wholly captivating, emotionally powerful and beautifully photographed classic epic of innocence, evil, greed, envy and revenge.

Manon Des Sources
The timeless story continues with the late Jean de Florette's daughter Manon (Emmanuelle Beart), now grown up into a beautiful and free-spirited young shepherdess on her father's Provence farm. But when she finally learns the tragic truth behind her father's death, Manon plots her revenge on the dim-witted Ugolin (Daniel Auteuil) and the scheming Le Papet (Yves Montand).

A visual feast containing masterly performances leading to a heart-stopping and totally unexpected conclusion.

Carlos Sorin
R195 Discovery Miles 1 950 Ships in 7 - 13 working days

A delightful road movie concerned with three disparate characters heading for the Argentine city of San Julian amid the beautiful landscapes of Patagonia.

Roberto is a travelling salesman hoping to impress a young widow by surprising her child with a birthday cake. Don Justo is an old man with poor vision who sits in front of his son's grocery store and entertains passing children by wiggling his ears. Maria is a shy young mother who has won an appearance on TV game show 'Multicoloured Casino".

Gently probing the hopes and aspirations of his characters, director Carlos Sorin uses the interconnected, tripartite structure to offer astute observations - both on a culture relatively unscathed by modernity and on contemporary Argentina itself.

Exquisitely acted and beautifully photographed by Mark Lee, who shot In the Mood for Love, Tran Anh Hung's sensuous and beautifully crafted film is an elegant and resonant combination of mood, ravishing visuals and music.

Whilst on holiday with her family, seventeen year old Isabelle experiences her first intimate relationship with an attractive young man named Felix. A few days later, and for no apparent reason, Isabelle casts him aside and cuts off all contact with him, behaving as if their encounter never happened.

When she returns home to Paris, Isabelle begins a dangerous new career; she sets up a profile on an escort website and lies about her age in order to make appointments with older, wealthy clients in chic, expensive hotel rooms. On the one hand she is a cool professional, catering to the whims of the various men she encounters; on the other she is maintaining the illusion of being a regular school student for her parents and friends.

Her double life spirals out of control, however, when the unthinkable happens with one of her regular clients and she is forced to deal with the consequences of what she has been doing.

The year is 1926. In the Landes region, free-spirited Thérèse Larroque, the daughter of a wealthy pinery owner and radical-socialist politician, marries Bernard Desqueyroux, another pinery owner. Although she does it half-heartedly, she thinks that marriage may help her to 'sort out all the ideas in her mind'.

But her disappointment is great. Her wedding night is all but fascinating and when she becomes pregnant she realizes the baby matters more to Bernard than herself.

Thérèse stifles in her husband's beautiful residence among stiff in-laws who do not think high of her, her avant-garde ideas clash with local conventions and her domineering husband, and in order to break free from the fate imposed upon her she will resort to tragically extreme measures.

From acclaimed director Abbas Kiarostami (Taste of Cherry, The Wind Will Carry Us) comes the story of a couple’s apparent chance meeting in beautiful Tuscany.

He (William Shimell) is a British author in town to talk about his new book. She (Juliette Binoche) is a French gallery owner in search of originality. Together they tour the local galleries, cafés and museums and discover that nothing is quite what it seems and truth, like art, is always open to interpretation.

Captivating and hugely entertaining, this acclaimed romantic tale playfully and provocatively blurs the lines between reality and imagination.

Dogtooth (Greek, DVD): Giorgos Lanthimos Dogtooth (Greek, DVD)
Giorgos Lanthimos 3
R159 Discovery Miles 1 590 Ships in 7 - 13 working days

Mama and Papa have created a surreal self-styled utopia for their three children within their secluded compound walls. Completely shut off from the outside world, the now adult children have grown up with their own language, and believe that cats are man-eating predators, aeroplanes flying overhead are toys and small yellow flowers are zombies.

The family's domestic harmony is irrevocably disturbed when their father invites his colleague Christina to service the sexual urges of the son.

Before long, the son and the two daughters are conducting a series of bizarre experiments with sex and violence, and their superficially constructed world of childhood innocence and fantasy threatens to come crashing down around them.

(Nominated for an Academy Award nomination, for Best Foreign Language Film)

A Prophet (French, DVD): Tahar Rahim, Niels Arestrup A Prophet (French, DVD)
Tahar Rahim, Niels Arestrup 3
R121 Discovery Miles 1 210 Ships in 7 - 13 working days

An impressionable and vulnerable Arab man gets thrust into a hellish prison, and ironically discovers greater opportunities for success than he ever possessed outside of the bars, in this violent melodrama from emerging French master filmmaker Jacques Audiard.

Tahar Rahim stars as Malik El Djebena, a petty criminal incarcerated for six years. Once inside and subjected to all of the standard brutalities that most prisoners endure, he is quickly educated in the "ways" of the prison, an institution torn violently between gangs of Corsicans and Arabs.

The head Corsican thug, César Luciani, offers Malik an ultimatum: either he rubs out an Arab inmate named Reyeb, or he himself dies. Not only does Malik succeed with the hit, he earns the begrudging respect of the other prisoners, and -- after securing several days' release for good behavior -- uses off-time to forge a deeper and more multi-layered network of criminal ties than he ever dreamed possible.

But as his own power and confidence grow, they threaten to outstrip Cesar's own insistence on submission and obedience at all costs.

R159 Discovery Miles 1 590 Ships in 7 - 13 working days

Every day, Dammiel listens to the thoughts of mortals who play their lives out on the streets of West Berlin. He finds himself entranced by a trapeze artist whose eloquent expression of her doubts and fears make him yearn for a life where he can feel happiness and love.

The afterlife in Wings Of Desire is a world in monochrome. Only the living can see in full colour and it is their lives, with their moments of sorrow and joy, that Wim Wenders captures so eloquently in this singularly original film.

Swedish director Roy Andersson explores the 'grandeur of existence', in this award-winning film consisting of fifty surreal short sketches, each filmed in one take. Filming the actors in a variety of unconventional settings with tragicomic themes, Andersson explores the humanity and common threads that link their everyday lives with empathy and charm. A visually distinctive film, its characters include a disgruntled psychiatrist, a junior school teacher with emotional issues, a heart broken groupie, and a business consultant having a bad-hair day.

Buffet Froid (French, DVD): Gerard Depardieu Buffet Froid (French, DVD)
Gerard Depardieu
R195 Discovery Miles 1 950 Ships in 7 - 13 working days

Regarded as one of director Bertrand Blier's greatest achievements, Buffet Froid is also amongst contemporary French cinema’s darkest and most original black comedies.

Alphonse Tram discovers his casual subway acquaintance dead with Alphonse's penknife sticking out of his belly. When he tries to report the crime to his neighbour, a police inspector, the latter refuses to listen. Later, Alphonse's wife is killed, and her hapless murderer confesses to Alphonse, but neither Alphonse nor the police inspector seem shocked. Instead, the crime acts as a catalyst for the trio to embark on a series of subversive adventures.

A stylish, nocturnal blend of Buñuellian satire and crime thriller, Buffet Froid brilliantly skewers the alienating and dehumanizing effects of urban life, and passes comment on a supposedly civilised society. Blier’s third collaboration with Depardieu, whose personality the director cites as the film’s inspiration, the ensemble acting is terrific.

Ikiru (Japanese, DVD): Akira Kurosawa Ikiru (Japanese, DVD)
Akira Kurosawa; Starring Takashi Shimura 2
R379 Discovery Miles 3 790 Ships in 7 - 13 working days

The story of a man diagnosed with stomach cancer, Kurosawa's film is a serious contemplation of the nature of existence and the question of how we find meaning in our lives.

Opening with a shot of an x-ray, showing the main character's stomach, Ikiru tells the tale of a dedicated, downtrodden civil servant who, diagnosed with a fatal cancer, learns to change his dull, unfulfilled existence, and suddenly discovers a zest for life.

Plunging first into self-pity, then a bout of hedonistic pleasure-seeking on the frenetic streets of post-war Tokyo, Watanabe - the film's hero - finally finds satisfaction through building a children's playground.

Beautifully played by Takashi Shimura (who starred in 21 of Kurosawa's films), Ikiru is an intensely lyrical and moving film, and was one of Kurosawa's own favourites.

R195 Discovery Miles 1 950 Ships in 7 - 13 working days

On a busy Paris boulevard, a youth scornfully tosses a crumpled paper bag into the outstretched hands of a beggar woman.

This is the bond which, for an instant, links several very different characters: Anne, an actress; her war photo- grapher boyfriend Georges; his farmer father and younger brother Jean, who, contrary to his father's wishes, has no interest in inheriting the farm; Amandou, a music teacher for deaf-mute children, and his family, who originate from Africa; and Maria a Romanian immigrant.

Written and directed by Michael Haneke, one of modern cinema's most distinctive and ambitious directors, Code Unknown is a complex film of powerful emotional force and a fascinating study of the subtle connections and barriers between people, social class, race, and the difficulty of communicating in the modern world.

R128 Discovery Miles 1 280 Ships in 7 - 13 working days

Yvan, a young sports writer, is married to Charlotte, one of France's most famous actresses.

They try to live a normal life, but her fame makes it difficult as autograph hunters interrupt their dinners, cops about to serve traffic summonses let them off with a warning and a smile when they recognise her, and impossible-to-get restaurant reservations magically appear when Charlotte makes the calls instead of Yvan.

All this threatens and challenges his male ego, but Yvan is able to take her stardom in his stride. Until, that is, a man at a bar asks him if he gets jealous watching his wife make love in the nude to another man on screen.

It has never seriously worried him before, but the stranger has sown the first seed of doubt in his head...

The third and final part of Kieslowski's trilogy has been acclaimed as his masterpiece. Immaculately played by an extraordinary cast, Red masterfully plays on Kieslowski's interpretation of brotherhood and destiny.

Irene Jacob is stunning as young model who meets retired judge by chance when she rescues his dog from a car accident. Jean-Louise Trintignant is utterly compelling as the embittered judge who spends his days eavesdropping on his neighbors' phone conversations. Their initially fiery relationship mellows into a close friendship that ultimately liberates them both.

A final twist of fate reveals the destinies of the characters from all three parts of the trilogy
