            Angela Blacks life appears idyllic: a lovely house in suburban London, days working as a volunteer at the dogs home, two wonderful sons and a charismatic, hard-working husband, Olivier. However, beneath this faade of charmed domesticity, Angela is also the victim of domestic abus...e. Trapped in a relationship she cannot escape, Angela is approached out of the blue by Ed, a private investigator, who spills Oliviers darkest secrets. When faced with some horrifying truths about her husband, a stunned Angela is left reeling. Can she really trust Ed? Can she leave behind her life as she knows it and finally free herself from Olivier? With one encounter, Angelas life switches from school runs and the dogs home to private detectives and buried secrets as she risks everything she holds dear to fight back against the man who has suppressed and tormented her for most of her life.

The feel-good and extremely appetising message of the film is clear: Arabs and Jews should unite over their shared love of food rather ...than fighting. Featuring freshly chopped Israeli/Arab salad, exquisite mussakhan (Palestinian roast chicken) and kreplach made to perfection, Breaking Bread is a mouth-watering film about hope, collaboration and exotic fare.

            A sensational trove. A great discovery. A cinematographic tour through 4 stunning exhibitions. After 70 years from the Hitlers declaration of war to degenerate art, an event film that reveals secrets of the Fuhrer treasure. Picasso, Matisse, Renoir and Chagall: paintings hidden, ...looted and condemned finally come to light to reveal the Nazi obsession for art on the big screen. Starting from the incredible Gurlitt case and of his massive collection, the true story of masterpieces persecutes and banned during the 20th century. Introduced and narrated by Toni Servillo, winner of 2 European Film Awards and protagonist of The Great Beauty, Best Foreign Film at the 86th Academy Award. 80 years have passed since the Nazi Regime placed a definite ban on so-called degenerate art, considered cosmopolitan and communist. In 1937 an exhibition was held publically branding and stigmatizing it, at the same time, at Hitlers behest, the confiscation began of ancient and classic works of art, of masterpieces that were to occupy those spaces imagined to be the Louvre of Linz. This documentary tells many stories. And all of them revolve around three big exhibitions, the starting point for a series of human and artistic narratives.

            Based on Erick Kstners iconic novel, writer/director Dominik Graf (Beloved Sisters) re-unites Never Look Away stars Tom Schilling and Saskia Rosendahl for this exhilarating coming-of-age drama set in Berlin in the tumultuous period between the 1929 market crash and the Nazi Party...s rise to power. Raffish twenty-something Jakob Fabian (Schilling) works as an advertising copywriter for a cigarette company during the day and at night, drifts through cabaret bars, brothels and artist studios with his wealthy leftist friend Labude (rising star Albrecht Schuch). When he meets Cornelia (Rosendahl), a self-confident aspiring actress, he manages to shed his pessimistic attitude for a brief moment and falls in love. But then, he too loses his job as part of the great wave of layoffs, whilst Cornelias career blossoms thanks to her boss and admirer, Makart (Aljoscha Stadelmann), a Babelsberg Studio mogul. Its an arrangement that Fabian finds difficult to come to terms with, and it's not just his world that is falling apart... Capturing a world of moral decline and disillusionment, this Bildungsroman is a wildly enthralling dive into Weimar Germany on the edge of self-destruction. Fans of the multi award-winning Babylon Berlin will be similarly entranced.

One morning, as he prepares to jet off to London to screen-test for a top-secret new American su...perhero blockbuster, he pops into the local dive bar to kill some time. There, he meets middle-aged Bruno, initially dismissing him as a(nother) fan. But far from it, Brunos in fact Daniels neighbour, and has been awaiting this moment. Bruno sees himself as one of reunifications losers and a victim of the gentrification of what was once East Berlin and as the pair banter, and he begins nitpicking the increasingly exasperated (and now late for his flight) Daniels career he gradually reveals a far more intimate knowledge of Daniels life than is comfortable...

            Zhenia, a Russian-speaking immigrant from the East works as a masseur in Poland and becomes a guru-like figure in a wealthy gated community of his clients. One grey, foggy morning, a mysterious young man, Zhenia (Alec Utgoff, Stranger Things), crosses the border from the Ukraine ...into Poland, carrying only a massage table. When faced with a staid official at Warsaws immigration office, he secures the necessary residence permit by simply taking the mans head in his huge, soft hands and massaging him into a trance. Zhenia soon establishes himself with the well-to-do residents of a suburban gated community of identical white McMansions, where his unique talents quickly become in demand. Among the clientele are Maria (Maja Ostaszewska), who finds a calm in Zhenia that her hostile children and husband dont provide; derisive widow Ewa (Agata Kulesza, Ida) who lusts after the masseur in more ways than shell dare admit; a woman obsessed by her three bulldogs who pleads for them to also be treated, and Wika (Weonika Rosati), who has invested the last hopes for her cancer-stricken husband (Lukasz Simlat, Corpus Christi) in Zhenias seemingly magical fingertips. But as he navigates through the affairs, drinking, drug-taking and games of neighbourly one-upmanship, no one thinks to ask Zhenia about his own concerns, least of all his mysterious origins Anchored by Utgoffs utterly magnetic central performance, Szumowska and Englerts study of class and modern malaise astutely blends magic realism with dark humour and stunning production design to often jaw-dropping effect. Following Pawel Pawlikowskis Cold War and Jan Komasas Corpus Christi as Polands official entry to the Academy Awards, NEVER GONNA SNOW AGAIN is a striking jewel worthy of equal attention.
