The Age of Shadows

The Age of Shadows
  • 2016
  • South Korea
  • 140 min
  • 15
  • 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.

  • 142 min
  • Directed by: Kleber Mendonça Filho
  • Cast: Sonia Braga, Maeve Jinkings, Irandhir Santos

Clara (Braga) is a 65-year-old widow and retired music critic, the sole remaining resident of an apartment block by the sea, but a construction company wants to knock it down. Effective, slow-burn drama with a sensational performance from Braga. A rare, rounded, fiery portrair of a middle-aged woman.

Elle

Elle
  • 2016
  • France, Germany, Belgium
  • 130 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Paul Verhoeven
  • Cast: Isabelle Huppert, Christian Berkel, Anne Consigny

Michele (Huppert) is a successful, middle-aged video games producer who, when raped by a violent intruder, doesn't report the assault but behaves as though nothing has happened. Verhoeven's dark character drama features an astonishing, multi-layered central performance from Huppert and its treatment of sexual violence is challenging and audacious.

The Eyes of My Mother

The Eyes of My Mother
  • 2016
  • US
  • 76 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Nicolas Pesce
  • Cast: Kika Magalhaes, Will Brill, Olivia Bond

Francisca (Magalhaes) is a young woman with no sense of right or wrong, who develops a taste for killing people. An arthouse coming-of-age drama cloaked in the conventions of a slasher film, it’s an impressive slice of American gothic but too mannered, eccentric and slow to entirely win you over.

  • US
  • 111 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Barry Jenkins
  • Cast: Alex Hibbert, Ashton Sanders, Trevante Rhodes, Mahershala Ali, Janelle Monáe, Naomie Harris

The story of a young black man growing up, struggling with his sexuality and neglected by his drug-addicted mother. Astutely judged and beautifully humane sophomore feature from Jenkins, with sublime work from the three actors playing the main character (Hibbert, Sanders, Rhodes) and fine support from Ali, Harris and Monáe. Terrific.

Personal Shopper

Personal Shopper
  • 2016
  • France
  • 105 min

  • Directed by: Olivier Assayas
  • Cast: Kristen Stewart, Nora von Waldstätten

Maureen (Stewart) is an American in Paris, coming to terms with the death of her twin brother while working in the titular position for her demanding celebrity boss (von Waldstätten). An awkward fusion of ghost story, celebrity culture satire and de Palma-style thriller; Stewart's nervy, edgy performance almost but not quite keeps it on track. Intriguing but incoherent.

  • Cast: Taraneh Alidoosti, Shahab Hosseini, Babak Karimi

  • Cast: Isabelle Huppert, André Marcon, Roman Kolinka, Edith Scob

Nathalie (Huppert) is a philosophy teacher whose finds herself having to soldier on as she loses her job, her mother (Scob, wonderful) and her husband over a short period of time. A poignant, wonderfully funny and elegantly crafted meditation on ageing; Huppert is simply incredible.
