          Louis Garrel stars as Abel, a dashing journalist whose girlfriend, Marianne (Laetitia Casta), informs him in the opening scene that she has fallen pregnant, and is leaving him to marry the father (who happens to be Abels best friend). So begins a tale that stretches over a number... of years, filled with unexpected joys and heartbreaks; Marianne will remerge into his life, as will Eva (a radiant Lily-Rose Depp), the impetuous younger sister of the man he was abandoned for. Shifting points of view as nimbly as its players, this beguiling tale, co-written with the legendary Jean-Claude Carrire (Belle de jour, Cyrano de Bergerac), effortlessly navigates through the bric--brac of loves and secrets with a winning, New Wave-esque sensibility; Paris streets and cafs appear almost magically unchanged since Truffauts 1960s. However its Garrels carefully considered yet light touch that charms and captivates, leaving audiences feeling an enduring sense of satisfaction.

As German troops begin to... rapidly advance on Paris, he delves into the delicate and complex culture of the refugee community, becoming tangled in the lives of a young mother and son and falling for a mysterious woman named Marie (Paula Beer). Making use of the uncanny parallels between historical fact and present-day, Petzold tells the story of a great love amid escape, exile and a longing for a place to call home.

          From across the globe, this Critics Choice Collection contains six carefully selected films that showcase of some of the finest examples of recent world cinema. These stunning, thought-provoking features continue to resonate with audiences long after viewing as they explore human...ity, society, tragedy, and morality whilst demonstrating deft intelligence and humour - making this collection essential viewing for would-be cinephile. Contains: 1. The Spark Of Life: When a desperate advertising executive suffers a terrible accident, he decides to take advantage of the situation; making The Spark Of Life a thought-provoking and somewhat farcical satire on media and public intrusion into real life tragedy. 2. The Man Who Laughs: Based on the book by Victor Hugo, The Man who laughs is a fantastical and moving tragedy of a disfigured orphan who must make a choice between two very different and competing destinies. 3. InchAllah: An intelligent and resonant moral drama; a young Canadian doctor is forced to face difficult truths when she becomes embroiled in the lives of those on both sides of the Israeli-Palestine conflict. 4. The Angels Share: Both a bittersweet comedy and deftly-executed heist movie; The Angels Share follows the trials facing a group of convicted petty criminals who seek redemption. Can they succeed? Only the angels know. 5. Silent Wedding: In Soviet-era Romania, a young couples wedding day is interrupted by the news of Stalins death and a period of enforced mourning and they must come up with an ingenious yet dangerous solution to continue their festivities. 6. Turning Tide: During the gruelling Vendee Globe racing event, a sailor battles rough seas and fierce competition but, when he discovers a young stowaway on-board, he finds the greatest challenge is confronting his own preconceptions.
