            Les Miserables (1978) - Victor Hugo's classic tale of pursuit, uprising and redemption, on which the musical sensation is based, is presented here in a lavishly restored edition. Jean Valjean (Richard Jordan - The Hunt for Red October), a handsome young woodcutter, is cruelly sen...t to prison for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his starving family. Released from prison many years later, he faces freedom with an urge for revenge until he encounters the benevolent Bishop Myriel, who convinces him to become an honest man and to perform good deeds for others. However, Javert (Anthony Perkins - Psycho), the ice-cold Inspector of Prisoners, relentlessly purses Valjean and is determined to put him back in prison. Les Miserables weaves a tale of courage, daring, escape, and the indomitable human spirit. Filmed in extravagant locations throughout France and elsewhere in Europe, it is truly a masterpiece of production. A Tale of Two Cities (1989) - Dissolute lawyer, Sydney Carton, falls passionately in love with the beautiful Lucie Manette. But Lucie loves only her husband, Charles Darnay, who has renounced his hated family name of St Everemonde and with it his connection with the corrupt French aristocracy, to live quietly in London. But the year is 1789, and when Paris erupts in flames as the mob storms the Bastille and overthrows the old order forever, there is a debt of honour that Charles must pay. The Bastille has fallen, but Charles must return to Paris to help an old servant. Inevitably, Charles is arrested and sentenced to die for his family's crimes. All seems lost until Sydney Carton appears. His moment has come, and at last he has the chance to redeem himself, to make up for a wasted life of drunkenness and dissipation in one act of supreme self-sacrifice for the woman he loves. The Woman in White (1997) - A classic tale of mystery, conspiracy and abduction. When young tutor Joseph Hartwright arrives at the Fairlie Estate, he encounters a mysterious 'woman in white

            Writer/director Grmur Hkonarsons eagerly-anticipated follow up to the worldwide hit Rams is a rousing, David-and-Goliath comedy about a farmers wife who steps up to take on the corrupt local co-op in her remote Icelandic valley. Dairy farmers Inga (Arnds Hrnn Egilsdttir) and her ...husband Reynir (Hinrik lafsson), love each other deeply, but are trapped theyre in debt, theyre working 24/7 and havent had a vacation in years. Inga has always been frustrated by the unquestioned commitment Reynir has to the local co-operative, unable to see the logic in them holding a monopoly over the milk they produce (nor in being forced to pay considerably more for groceries and supplies than what those items cost online or in Reykjavik). So after disaster strikes, and the plucky Inga is forced to try and make it on her own, she launches a social media campaign to bring attention to the organisations exploitative practices. Unfortunately, everyone else in the community is dependent on its economic heft, and Ingas quest soon makes her the target of a ruthless adversary. Reminiscent of underdog fables such as Woman At War and Three Billboards, and driven by Egilsdttir's commanding and moving performance (as well as a fine turn from Rams star Sigurur Sigurjnsson as the co-op's self-assured director), Hkonarsons humanistic and charming film deftly melds wry humour and Icelandic gruffness to deliver an crowd-pleasing tale of a woman whos simply had enough, and decides to try to live life on her own terms.

            A new look at Van Gogh, through the legacy of the largest private collector of artworks by the Dutch painter: Helene Krller-Mller (1869-1939), who, in the early 20th Century, ended up buying nearly 300 of his works, paintings and drawings included. The story unfolds of a woman wh...o, in Van Goghs spiritual torment could recognize her own, showing priceless artistic treasures and the rare, naturalistic and architectural beauty of the Krller-Mller Museum set in the vast De Hoge Weluge park, as well as visual extracts of the Milanese, Florentine, Roman and Palladian Renaissance. It tells the tormented, existential parable of a painter, seen through passages from his brother Theos letters, which set the pace of the exhibition, and it shows images of the places he lived and stayed in, from Paris to Provence. The opportunity to tell the story of this collection and of the burning passion for art that led to it, is an outstanding exhibition on Van Gogh. Amid wheat fields and clouded skies at the Basilica Palladiana in Vicenza, brings together 40 paintings and 85 drawings from the Krller-Mller Museum in Otterlo, Holland, now home to Helenes heritage. This is an exhibition that will not only tell us about Van Goghs art and his genius, but it will also allow us to understand the importance of drawing as part of his artistic technique. His seemingly instinctive, au premier coup canvases were the result of long, preparatory studies, not sketches but complete works of art in themselves, where the broken flow of lines that characterizes the style of his paintings, can already be found.
