Crazy Stupid Love
Click through on the links to watch the film trailers:
Crazy Stupid Love - Ensemble-cast romantic comedy that is by all accounts a sophisticated bash at a age-old set up. Steve Carell is a decent man but has been dumped by his cheating wife (Julianne Moore) and to get himself back in the game he enlists the help of playboy Ryan Gosling. Witty, acerbic dialogue and strong performances go a long way to making this an all in all perfectly watchable film.
El Capitán Trueno y el Santo Grial - Hollywood isn't the only place that's digging the mine of old comic books, with Spain clearly searching through their old back catalogue too. Adapted from the popular comic book series popular in the Sixties, the film uses a plot from one of the earliest editions.
El Ilusionista (l'illusionniste) - French-British animated film taken from an unpublished letter written by mime artist, director and comedian Jacques Tati to his estranged daughter. Originally set in Czechoslovakia Sylvain Chomet, director of the feature, has transferred it to Fifties Scotland. The story tells of a failing illusionist who meets a young girl who thinks he is and can be a successful magician again.
Intruders - Spanish film-makers continue to make inroads in Hollywood with this the latest flick from the makers of 28 Weeks Later. Directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo and written by Spanish team Nicolás Casanego and Jaime Marques. A girl is confronted by a monster in her house and subsequently normal family life is destroyed.
Las Razones del Corázon - Twice winner of the Golden Shell Award, Mexican director saw his latest flick Las Razones del Corazón included in the Official Selection of the San Sebastian Film Festival this year but failed to take away a prize. It's a personal adaptation of the last chapters of Madame Bovary. Bored housewife Emilia is left unfulfilled by her mediocre life and on the same day that her lover leaves her, her financial credit problems come to a head and she loses all her possessions.
Nadar, y Simin una Separación - Picking up Best Director Award and the prizes for both actor categories at the Berlin Film Festival, Asghar Farhadi's latest film tells the story of an unhappy couple who are trying to divorce. They have visas to leave Iran but familial complications are causing rifts between them. One desires to make a new and better life for their young daughter and the other doesn't want to leave an elderly relative behind without proper care. Subtle and beautifully acted tale of the sociological issues that are at the forefront of modern Iranian life.
