Frantz
  • 2016
  • France
  • 113 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: François Ozon
  • Cast: Pierre Niney, Paula Beer, Ernst Stötzner

In a small German town after WW1, Anna (Beer) mourns her fiancé Frantz who was killed, when she meets Frenchman Adrien (Niney), who claims to have been his friend. Touching, mournful and beautifully crafted tale, with a fine performance from Beer as just one of the many impressive elements.

The Handmaiden

The Handmaiden
  • 2016
  • Korea
  • 144 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Park Chan-Wook
  • Cast: Kim Tae-Ri, Kim Min-Hee, Ha Jung-Woo, Jo Jin-Woong

Thief Sook-Hee (Tae-ri) is hired to pose as a maid to wealthy heiress Hideko (Min-hee) as part of a con trick, but then maid and heiress discover mutual passion. This loose adaptation of Sarah Waters's Fingersmith is bravura filmmaking, but while the emotion between the two women is vibrant, an extended sex scene is exploitative, and the plot is too convoluted.

  • Cast: Sherwan Haji, Sakari Kousmanen, Ville Virtanen, Kati Outinen

Syrian asylum-seeker Khaled (Haji) meets travelling salesman-turned-restaurateur Wikström (Kuosmanen), and after an awkward start, a beautiful friendship is born. Kaurismaki is back and at the top of his game, with a melancholy, gorgeous-looking, sometimes screamingly funny exploration of the kindness of strangers. How we’ve missed him.
