            Writer/director Grmur Hkonarsons eagerly-anticipated follow up to the worldwide hit Rams is a rousing, David-and-Goliath comedy about a farmers wife who steps up to take on the corrupt local co-op in her remote Icelandic valley. Dairy farmers Inga (Arnds Hrnn Egilsdttir) and her ...husband Reynir (Hinrik lafsson), love each other deeply, but are trapped theyre in debt, theyre working 24/7 and havent had a vacation in years. Inga has always been frustrated by the unquestioned commitment Reynir has to the local co-operative, unable to see the logic in them holding a monopoly over the milk they produce (nor in being forced to pay considerably more for groceries and supplies than what those items cost online or in Reykjavik). So after disaster strikes, and the plucky Inga is forced to try and make it on her own, she launches a social media campaign to bring attention to the organisations exploitative practices. Unfortunately, everyone else in the community is dependent on its economic heft, and Ingas quest soon makes her the target of a ruthless adversary. Reminiscent of underdog fables such as Woman At War and Three Billboards, and driven by Egilsdttir's commanding and moving performance (as well as a fine turn from Rams star Sigurur Sigurjnsson as the co-op's self-assured director), Hkonarsons humanistic and charming film deftly melds wry humour and Icelandic gruffness to deliver an crowd-pleasing tale of a woman whos simply had enough, and decides to try to live life on her own terms.

            A new look at Van Gogh, through the legacy of the largest private collector of artworks by the Dutch painter: Helene Krller-Mller (1869-1939), who, in the early 20th Century, ended up buying nearly 300 of his works, paintings and drawings included. The story unfolds of a woman wh...o, in Van Goghs spiritual torment could recognize her own, showing priceless artistic treasures and the rare, naturalistic and architectural beauty of the Krller-Mller Museum set in the vast De Hoge Weluge park, as well as visual extracts of the Milanese, Florentine, Roman and Palladian Renaissance. It tells the tormented, existential parable of a painter, seen through passages from his brother Theos letters, which set the pace of the exhibition, and it shows images of the places he lived and stayed in, from Paris to Provence. The opportunity to tell the story of this collection and of the burning passion for art that led to it, is an outstanding exhibition on Van Gogh. Amid wheat fields and clouded skies at the Basilica Palladiana in Vicenza, brings together 40 paintings and 85 drawings from the Krller-Mller Museum in Otterlo, Holland, now home to Helenes heritage. This is an exhibition that will not only tell us about Van Goghs art and his genius, but it will also allow us to understand the importance of drawing as part of his artistic technique. His seemingly instinctive, au premier coup canvases were the result of long, preparatory studies, not sketches but complete works of art in themselves, where the broken flow of lines that characterizes the style of his paintings, can already be found.

            A sensational trove. A great discovery. A cinematographic tour through 4 stunning exhibitions. After 70 years from the Hitlers declaration of war to degenerate art, an event film that reveals secrets of the Fuhrer treasure. Picasso, Matisse, Renoir and Chagall: paintings hidden, ...looted and condemned finally come to light to reveal the Nazi obsession for art on the big screen. Starting from the incredible Gurlitt case and of his massive collection, the true story of masterpieces persecutes and banned during the 20th century. Introduced and narrated by Toni Servillo, winner of 2 European Film Awards and protagonist of The Great Beauty, Best Foreign Film at the 86th Academy Award. 80 years have passed since the Nazi Regime placed a definite ban on so-called degenerate art, considered cosmopolitan and communist. In 1937 an exhibition was held publically branding and stigmatizing it, at the same time, at Hitlers behest, the confiscation began of ancient and classic works of art, of masterpieces that were to occupy those spaces imagined to be the Louvre of Linz. This documentary tells many stories. And all of them revolve around three big exhibitions, the starting point for a series of human and artistic narratives.

            Based on Erick Kstners iconic novel, writer/director Dominik Graf (Beloved Sisters) re-unites Never Look Away stars Tom Schilling and Saskia Rosendahl for this exhilarating coming-of-age drama set in Berlin in the tumultuous period between the 1929 market crash and the Nazi Party...s rise to power. Raffish twenty-something Jakob Fabian (Schilling) works as an advertising copywriter for a cigarette company during the day and at night, drifts through cabaret bars, brothels and artist studios with his wealthy leftist friend Labude (rising star Albrecht Schuch). When he meets Cornelia (Rosendahl), a self-confident aspiring actress, he manages to shed his pessimistic attitude for a brief moment and falls in love. But then, he too loses his job as part of the great wave of layoffs, whilst Cornelias career blossoms thanks to her boss and admirer, Makart (Aljoscha Stadelmann), a Babelsberg Studio mogul. Its an arrangement that Fabian finds difficult to come to terms with, and it's not just his world that is falling apart... Capturing a world of moral decline and disillusionment, this Bildungsroman is a wildly enthralling dive into Weimar Germany on the edge of self-destruction. Fans of the multi award-winning Babylon Berlin will be similarly entranced.
