          When Ana (Morn, Neruda, The Motorcycle Diaries) and Marco (Darn, Truman, Wild Tales) arrive at the airport to farewell their son Luciano, who is leaving his Argentine homeland to study abroad, they are filled with certainty that theyve done well as parents. However his departure ...leaves a significant hole in their everyday lives, and after more than twenty years of marriage, both reluctantly come to admit that their feelings for each other have shifted. So as if it were one last project together, Ana and Marco decide to consciously uncouple, and begin to explore the surprising and sometimes wonderful world of the newly-single, to hilarious and unexpected results. This wonderful showcase for its two leads unsurprisingly stormed the local box office, becoming one of Argentinas biggest hits of the year. Intelligent, warm and wise, AN UNEXPECTED LOVE is a sheer delight.

          The highly anticipated new film from the creators of the Oscar-nominated Embrace of the Serpent, Ciro Guerra and Cristina Gallegos astounding BIRDS OF PASSAGE is an epic, visually exquisite story about the origin of the Colombian drug trade, told through the perspective of a prou...d indigenous family. Guajira, Northern Colombia, 1970s. Wayuu tribe-member Zaida (Natalia Reyes) has come of age, leaving formidable matriarch Ursula (Carmia Martnez) with the important task of finding a suitable match. Her instincts warn her against young Rapayet (Jos Acosta), an ambitious man with strong links outside of the clan, but the word of his respected uncle Peregrino (Jos Vicente Cotes) carries weight, so she succedes, setting an outrageous dowry. The seed sown, Rapayet stumbles onto a plan with his flamboyant friend Moises and cousin Anbal to sell marijuana to a visiting American. Its the beginnings of a profitable new enterprise. As the family rises to prominence, Ursula becomes increasingly complicit in her son-in-laws business dealings, insisting traditional honour codes are respected and observed. But the trappings of wealth and power soon incite a war that threatens to tear them and their ancient traditions apart. A unique sensory adventure, BIRDS OF PASSAGE, with its fascinating depiction of duelling tribal codes, rituals and beliefs, and the destabilising impact of outside influences, couldnt be further removed from the time-honoured, rags-to-riches crime sagas of Western cinema. Almost mythical in its storytelling, this extraordinary film bursts with eye-popping traditional costumes and culture, an immersive atmosphere of surreal imagery, vivid sound design and glorious widescreen cinematography. It demands to be seen on the biggest screen possible.

          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.

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.
