  • 12A
  • Directed by: Denzel Washington
  • Cast: Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, Stephen Henderson

Troy ( Washington) is a proud, tight-fisted, ageing working stiff in 50s Pittsburgh, full of bitterness that God, poverty and segregation ruined his youthful dreams of sporting success. Beautifully shot family drama, superbly acted (especially by Washington and Davis), but it suffers a bit from heavy self-importance and a long running time.

  • 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.
