The Age of Shadows

The Age of Shadows
  • 2016
  • South Korea
  • 140 min

  • Directed by: Jee-woon Kim
  • Written by: Jee-woon Kim
  • Cast: Byung-hun Lee, Yoo Gong, Kang-ho Song

Lee Jung-Chool (Song Kang-ho) is a Korean police officer serving as part of a Japanese mission to locate a consignment of explosives in 1920s Shanghai. A little research into the political tensions of the era is advisable, but it has a steely verve and baroque style that makes for compelling viewing.

Viceroy's House

Viceroy's House
  • 2017
  • UK / India
  • 106 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Gurinder Chadha
  • Cast: Gillian Anderson, Michael Gambon, Hugh Bonneville, Manish Dayal, Huma Qureshi

Lord Louis Mountbatten (Bonneville) is to oversee Britain’s withdrawal from India and the ensuing partition, but he and his wife Edwina (Anderson) witness the violence erupting through the country. A below-stairs romance between Dayal and Qureshi is frustratingly insipid and the Indian characters are all unforgivably poorly drawn. Despite some good acting, timid and inert.
