Powerful, highly acclaimed epic directed by Bertolucci. The story, a grandiose account of the life and times of two separate families in 20th Century Italy, is beautifully complimented by the all-star cast. Depardieu is the salt-of-the earth peasant, whilst De Niro is the....... find out more...

Set during the late 1930s and using Hitler's first trip to Italy and the myopia of fascism as the stories lynch pin we watch the unexpected burgeoning of an intense relationship between a bored bigoted middle aged wife and her homosexual, possibly suicidal neighbour. Ettore Scola creates an intense and revelatory scenario between his two protagonists, while Loren and Mastroianni give mesmerising performances in the central roles, perfectly capturing the mood of two ordinary people on the cusp of find out more...
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...

A landmark in the history of the cinema; it was ranked Number 1 in the American Film Institute's 100 greatest films of all time in two polls (1998 and 2007) of more than 1,500 film industry movers and shakers and again by UK directors in a BFI poll. "Citizen Kane" narrates the rise and fall of a newspaper tycoon driven by a childhood obssession and is loosely based round the life of William Randolph Hurst, who tried to have it banned, but incorporates elements from the lives of other fat cats il find out more...

Set in the 1930s and based around real events, we follow a diverse group of characters and events in depression hit New York. The young Orson Welles, with a group of equally idealistic and determined actors, sets about trying to stage a performance of the infamous left leaning musical 'Cradle Will Rock'. This has an awesome cast and is strikingly visualised, but Robbins has perhaps bitten off more history than it is possible to chew on in one two hour movie. Nevertheless a powerful and absorbi find out more...

The object of this massive tribute died as he had always lived, without wealth, without property, without official title or office. Mahatma Gandhi was not the commander of armies, nor the ruler of vast lands, he could not boast any scientific achievement or artistic gift, yet men, governments, dignitaries from all over the world, have joined hands today to pay homage to the little brown man in the loin cloth who led his country to freedom. This quote is from his funeral, one of the greatest s find out more...

GOOD (2009)

Halder was a 1930s German literature professor and somewhat apolitical. This is the story of how such a man could be drawn into and influenced by Nazism, how apparently innocuous decisions and events, like abandoning his wife and the publication of a book, could lead him to make the career choices that he did. find out more...
