1560, Peru. In a beautiful poetic opening scene the conquistadors cross an Andes pass, situated between the peaks and the valleys, between conquered land and unexplored forests, between 'heaven' and 'earth', shrouded in mists, they make their way down a narrow path. Aguirre's meglomania grows as around him his comrades mutiny and die in his search for the lost city of El Dorado. Herzog's best film, an unforgetable tour de force. Made before the director himself gave in to meglomania on a later t find out more...

From the director of "Mrs Brown", a wickedly witty romantic romp, taking some light-hearted liberties with the lovelife of England's most celebrated playwright. It's 1590, and young Will Shakespeare is suffering from a chronic case of writer's block, whilst trying to finish his latest work "Romeo And Ethel The Pirate's Daughter".

The story is a legend in France, a fascinating tale of deception leading to a love that deserves to last, but is spoilt by the ugliness of human nature. A great re-creation of the medie find out more...
