Cemetery Of Splendour - Apichatpong Weerasethakul

Apichatpong Weerasethakul / 2015 / Thailand / 122 mins

Soldiers with a mysterious sleeping sickness are transferred to a temporary clinic in a former school. The memory-filled space becomes a revelatory world for housewife and volunteer Jenjira, as she watches over Itt, a handsome soldier with no family visitors. Jen befriends young medium Keng who uses her psychic powers to help loved ones communicate with the comatose men. Doctors explore ways, including coloured light therapy, to ease the mens’ troubled dreams. Jen discovers Itt’s cryptic notebook of strange writings and blueprint sketches. There may be a connection between the soldiers’ enigmatic syndrome and the mythic ancient site that lies beneath the clinic. Magic, healing, romance and dreams are all part of Jen’s tender path to a deeper awareness of herself and the world around her.

He's On Duty (2010) - Korean Cinema Echoes

Deptford Cinema is proud to collaborate with the Korean Cultural Centre UK to bring you incredible cinema. Once a month, we'll screen a gem picked by KCC. And it's free!

To conclude our triptych on migration, we're delighted to present Yook Sanh-hyo's comedy HE'S ON DUTY.


Bang Tae-sik is a perennially unemployed South Korean man who, based on his physical appearance, could pass for a foreigner. As a result he is often confused for an outsider and, having nothing much to do, he takes advantage this situation. Tae-sik adopts a fake foreign accent and pretends to come from Bhutan. Very clumsy, the newly named Bang-ga gains confidence little by little and becomes more and more influential among his friends and co-workers. He also starts romancing the lovely Jang-mi who works in the same factory as him.

With He’s on Duty, Yook Sanh-Hyo presents a light-hearted and vigorous comedy that delivers uncommonly powerful commentaries on immigration, discrimination and racism.

La La Land

American romantic musical film written and directed by Damien Chazelle, and starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone as a musician and an aspiring actress who meet and fall in love in Los Angeles. The film's title refers both to the city of Los Angeles and to the idiom for being out of touch with reality.

At the 89th Academy Awards, La La Land received a leading six awards, including Best Director, Best Actress (for Stone), Best Cinematography, Best Original Score, Best Original Song ("City of Stars") and Best Production Design

Audacious, retro, funny and heartfelt, La La Land is the latest great musical for people who don’t like musicals – and will slap a mile-wide smile across the most miserable of faces.

Ian Freer

Empire

"La La Land" isn't a masterpiece (and on some level it wants to be). Yet it's an elating ramble of a movie, ardent and full of feeling, passionate but also exquisitely controlled.

Owen Gleiberman

Variety

*It’s a film that re-enacts, with rare originality, a classic role for the movie medium—escapist entertainment in troubled times. *

Joe Morgenstern

Wall Street Journal

*For a film that starts with a slightly campy musical number that could alienate viewers just as easily as charm them, this romance sure makes the leap to greatness quickly. *

  • Directed by: Céline Sciamma
  • Written by: Céline Sciamma
  • Cast: Zoé Héran, Malonn Lévana, Jeanne Disson, Sophie Cattani, Mathieu Demy

Something like a pre-pubescent cousin of The Virgin Suicides, this quietly beautiful film centres on a little girl who introduces herself to the children of her new neighbourhood as a boy. Powered by an incredibly convincing performance by 10-year-old Héran, it sets a carefree tone that contrasts with the high stakes of emerging identity.
