BAARIA (2009)

Certification15 Our Rating

Giuseppe Tornatore directed this grand-scale portrait of life and love over several decades in the small town in Sicily where he was born. We see a number of important historical events through the eyes of young Peppino, watching the fortunes of his town and his family rise and fall. While open to accusations of nostalgia, superficiality and indulgence the film is something of a feast for the senses.
A rambunctious family saga the kind they don't, and probably shouldn't, make any more. find out more...

Robert Downey Jnr demonstrates his prowess by giving a riveting performance as the little master. The cast delivers despite a disjointed narrative, and Chaplin's fall from grace, brought down by McCarthyism is very moving. Kevin Kline is excellent as the flamboyant Fairbanks Jnr. find out more...

Comissioned by the GPO, 'Night Mail' (1936) is a much-studied piece of British cinema, which, in true modernist fashion, fuses film, poetry and music together in order to convey the success of the British postal service. West Highland (1960) is a beautiful tribute to the heady days of the steam railway that had, by the time this film was made, gone into decline. find out more...

Adapted from Bruce Chatwin's book and very much 'Thomas Hardy does Wales'. We follow four generations, in particular the intense relationship of two identical twin brothers, Ben and Lewis, of a Welsh hill-farming family. Visionary direction and ravishing scenery, our countryside at its very best. find out more...

The definitive gangster-epic; violent? Yes, but never mindless. The Jewish Mafia's coming of age on the Lower East Side in 1923, their rise to wealth during Prohibition, and their fall in 1933, provide the background to a story of friendship and betrayal, love and death. Leone's masterful cinematography evokes both the harshness of the vice-ridden decades before and after Prohibition, but also the philosophy behind it. Splendid performances by De Niro and Woods and a stupendous score by Ennio Mo find out more...
