          • $16.99
          • Available

          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.
