Cinema Paradiso

Cinema Paradiso
  • 1988
  • Italy/France
  • 123 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Giuseppe Tornatore
  • Written by: Giuseppe Tornatore
  • Cast: Philippe Noiret, Salvatore Cascio, Marco Leonardi, Jacques Perrin

Told largely in flashback, the winner of the 1990 Oscar for Best Foreign Film traces young Salvatore's infatuation with his village cinema, and his growing friendship with its projectionist (played to perfection by Noiret). Essentially, it's Tornatore's lament for the joyous movie-going experience of his youth and recognition of the price we pay for our maturity.

Toni Erdmann
  • 2017
  • Germany, Austria
  • 162 min

  • Directed by: Maren Ade
  • Cast: Peter Simonischek, Sandra Hüller, Michael Wittenborn

When Winfried (Simonischek) visits his adult daughter Ines (Hüller) in Romania, he thinks that she takes life too seriously, and decides to play pranks on her. Superlative third feature from German writer-director Ade, ranging from flamboyantly lunatic comedy to a wonderfully natural, textured portrait of the parent-child relationship. Inimitable and unforgettable.

T2 Trainspotting

T2 Trainspotting
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 117 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Danny Boyle
  • Cast: Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Kelly MacDonald, James Cosmo, Shirley Henderson, Irvine Welsh

Renton (McGregor) returns to Edinburgh from Amsterdam, two decades on. Hodge's blood-pumping script builds on the original with characters that are older, sadder and definitely not wiser, and resentment and guilt festering like an open sore; but is it Archie-Gemmill-scoring-against Holland good? Yes, it is.
