About Elly home
El Pastel de Boda (Pièce Montée) - French comedy focusing on a frantic, nerve-filled, chaotic wedding day, which is based on a best-seller in France 'Une pièce montée'. Bérèngere and Vincent are due to get married in a typical middle-class ceremony, but, perhaps unsurprisingly, once the two families come together for what should be the happy event descends into confrontation and confusion.
Directo a la Fama (The Marc Pease Experience) - Latest movie featuring Ben Stiller, although this time he neither wrote nor directed it, this comedy also stars Jason Schwartzman as the eponymous Marc Pease, a one-time successful musical student who has achieved nothing with his skills since leaving school. So, he turns to his former teacher, John Gribble (Stiller), for help with an a capella group that he is trying to put together. Pease's plan gets more complicated when he discovers that his much-loved ex-girlfriend is now in a relationship with his ex-teacher.
Prince of Persia, Las Arenas del Tiempo (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time) - Big-scale big-budget historical drama from Disney starring a souped-up Jake Gyllenhaal as the prince who, following an unfortunate series of events, must discover a way to turn his royal father back into a real person after he is transformed into sand. Oh, and he also has to fight dark forces, work with a mysterious princess, etc. on the way.
Baaria - Italian-French joint production from Giuseppe Tornatore (who both wrote and directed the film) that tells the tale of various generations of a Sicilian family from the Thirties to the Eighties. Billed as a comedy-drama, the film looks at the lives of its protagonists against the difficult and turbulent political backdrop as Italy moved from fascism to war and into complex post-war upheaval.
A Propósito de Elly (About Elly) - Iranian drama based around a group of friends who take a trip to the sea to mark the visit of Ahmad, who has been living in Germany for years and has recently got divorced. The popular Elly is invited along as a possible romantic interest for Ahmad, but when she goes missing without trace, recriminations begin amongst the group aimed at the person who invited Elly, Sepideh, and gradually the friends start to re-consider their previously favourable opinion of the girl until the truth about her eventually comes out.
Aurora Boreal (Solstorm) - Thriller from Sweden based on a popular novel - this is a genre that is showing no signs of flagging. This time, the author is Asa Larsson and the action takes place in the north of the country when a mutilated body is found in a remote church. The heroine, lawyer Rebecka Martinsson, is asked by an old schoolfriend, and sister of the victim, to help her out when suspicion falls on her for her brother's death.
