    With Toni Servillo, Isabelle Huppert, Alba Rohrwacher

     

     

    The multilayered narrative of Bellocchio’s latest film is constructed around

    Italy ’s equivalent of the Terri Schiavo case, a legal struggle around the fate of a woman, Eluana Englaro, suspended in a vegetative coma for 17 years. Each story plays out on a different stylistic level: domestic drama (a liberal senator risks losing the love of his deeply religious daughter), social realism (a young doctor struggles to save a drug addict from herself), and operatic delirium (a famous actress creates a theatrical spectacle around her own daughter, a young woman kept alive by a respirator). (In English and Italian with English subtitles)

    “Recalls the kind of film the great Robert Altman might be making if he were still alive. The best political film of the era…BELLOCCHIO PROVES THAT CINEMA IS STILL ALIVE.” -Armond White, National Review

    "[Bellocchio] may be one of the living Italian masters, but he continues to create work that lives most vividly at the place where family meets politics, where private emotions challenge institutions including -- and especially -- the church and the state. -Caryn James, IndieWire

    With Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Ed Harris, Kang ho Song, Ah-sung ko, Octavia Spencer

    In the near future, an experiment to counteract global warming causes an ice age that kills nearly all life on Earth. The only survivors are the inhabitants of the 'Snowpiercer', a massive train, powered by a perpetual-motion engine that travels on a globe-spanning track. A class system is installed, with the elites inhabiting the front of the train and poor inhabiting the tail. Seventeen years later, in the year 2031, the tail inhabitants prepare for the latest in a series of rebellions. Guards arrive periodically to deliver protein blocks for food, and take some of the children. During one of the guards’ visits, Curtis (Chris Evans) leads the tail inhabitants in revolt, forcing their way through several train cars to the prison section. There, they release prisoner Namgoong Minsu (Kang ho Song), the man who built the doors dividing each car, and his daughter Yona (Ah-sung ko). They offer him Kronal, an addictive drug, as payment for unlocking the doors…

    VENUS IN FUR

    (La Vénus à la fourrure)

    Directed by ROMAN POLANSKI/2014/France/96mins.

    With Mathieu Almaric and Emmanuelle Seigner

     

     

     

    Based on the Tony Award-winning Broadway play by David Ives, which itself was based on Leopold von Sacher-Masoch’s groundbreaking novella, VENUS IN FUR is the latest film from master filmmaker Roman Polanski. Alone in a Paris theater after a long day of auditioning actresses for his new play, writer-director Thomas (Amalric) complains that no actress he’s seen has what it takes to play the lead female character: a woman who enters into an agreement with her male counterpart to dominate him as her slave…Not only is Vanda a perfect fit (even sharing the character's name), but she apparently has researched the role exhaustively, learned her lines by heart and even bought her own props. The likeness proves to be much more than skin-deep. As the extended "audition" builds momentum, Thomas moves from attraction to obsession until…(In French with English subtitles).

    Based on the Tony Award-winning Broadway play by David Ives, which itself was based on Leopold von Sacher-Masoch’s groundbreaking novella, VENUS IN FUR is the latest film from master filmmaker Roman Polanski. Alone in a Paris theater after a long day of auditioning actresses for his new play, writer-director Thomas (Amalric) complains that no actress he’s seen has what it takes to play the lead female character: a woman who enters into an agreement with her male counterpart to dominate him as her slave…Not only is Vanda a perfect fit (even sharing the character's name), but she apparently has researched the role exhaustively, learned her lines by heart and even bought her own props. The likeness proves to be much more than skin-deep. As the extended "audition" builds momentum, Thomas moves from attraction to obsession until…(In French with English subtitles).

    In the near future, an experiment to counteract global warming causes an ice age that kills nearly all life on Earth. The only survivors are the inhabitants of the 'Snowpiercer', a massive train, powered by a perpetual-motion engine that travels on a globe-spanning track. A class system is installed, with the elites inhabiting the front of the train and poor inhabiting the tail. Seventeen years later, in the year 2031, the tail inhabitants prepare for the latest in a series of rebellions. Guards arrive periodically to deliver protein blocks for food, and take some of the children. During one of the guards’ visits, Curtis (Chris Evans) leads the tail inhabitants in revolt, forcing their way through several train cars to the prison section. There, they release prisoner Namgoong Minsu (Kang ho Song), the man who built the doors dividing each car, and his daughter Yona (Ah-sung ko). They offer him Kronal, an addictive drug, as payment for unlocking the doors…

    A THIRSTY WORLD

    Documentary by YANN ARTHUS-BERTRAND/France/2012/90mins.

    This time, the famous photographer Yann-Arthus-Bertrand is looking at one of the major challenges to human survival: WATER. Today, against a backdrop of sharply increasing demand, growth in the world population and the growing impact of an unsettled climate, water has become one of the most precious natural resources of our planet. Faithful to Yann Arthus-Bertrand's reputation, A THIRSTY WORLD, filmed in some 20 countries, reveals the mysterious and fascinating world of fresh water through spectacular aerial images shot in regions that are difficult to reach and rarely filmed, like Southern Sudan or

    Northern Congo. It also lets us discover the most beautiful landscapes on our planet, the lakes, rivers and wetlands created by water.

    “A 100: A VISIONARY, THRILLING WORK…FROM ONE OF OUR MOST EXCITING FILMMAKERS”-Olivier Lyttelton, The Playlist

     

    “AN ENORMOUSLY AMBITOUS, VISUALLY STUNNING, AND RICHLY SATISYING FUTURISTIC EPIC from the gifted Korean genre director Bong Joon-ho…Snowpiercer has been brought to the screen with the kind of solid narrative craftsmanship, carefully drawn characters and--above all--respect for the audience’s intelligence rarely encountered in high-concept genre cinema.”-Scott Foundas, Variety

     

    “AN ENTHRALLING RIDE THAT NEVER RUNS OUT OF MOMENTUM as it cleverly examines the issue of social class in a thoroughly engaging, yet complex manner.”-Screen International

    IDA

    Directed by PAWEL PAWLIKOWSKI/Poland/2014/80mins.

    With Agata Trzebuchowska, Dawid Ogrodnik, Halina Skoczynska

     

     

    From acclaimed director Pawel Pawlikowski comes Ida, a moving and intimate drama about a young novitiate nun in 1960s

    Poland who, on the verge of taking her vows, makes a shocking discovery about her past. She is shocked with the declaration that her real name is Ida and her Jewish parents were murdered during the Nazi occupation. This revelation triggers a heart-wrenching journey into the countryside, to the family house and into the secrets of the repressed past, evoking the haunting legacy of the Holocaust and the realities of postwar Communism.

    Miami Beach Premiere Engagement!

    VENUS IN FUR

    (La Vénus à la fourrure)

    Directed by ROMAN POLANSKI/2014/France/96mins.

    With Mathieu Almaric and Emmanuelle Seigner

     

     

     

    Based on the Tony Award-winning Broadway play by David Ives, which itself was based on Leopold von Sacher-Masoch’s groundbreaking novella, VENUS IN FUR is the latest film from master filmmaker Roman Polanski. Alone in a Paris theater after a long day of auditioning actresses for his new play, writer-director Thomas (Amalric) complains that no actress he’s seen has what it takes to play the lead female character: a woman who enters into an agreement with her male counterpart to dominate him as her slave…Not only is Vanda a perfect fit (even sharing the character's name), but she apparently has researched the role exhaustively, learned her lines by heart and even bought her own props. The likeness proves to be much more than skin-deep. As the extended "audition" builds momentum, Thomas moves from attraction to obsession until…(In French with English subtitles).

    “MISCHIEVIOUS, LIP SMACKING ENTERTAINMENT”

    -The Hollywood Reporter

    “Polanski’s most simple and unalloyed film, A JOYOUS TWO-HANDER AND AS NEAR TO COMEDY AS POLANSKI HAS EVER BEEN - bearing in mind his customary attraction to discomfort, panic and a nagging imminence of the sinister.”-Film of the Week, Sight and Sound
