|Die ABENTEUER DES PRINZEN ACHMED
Exquisite, feminist film about a married woman's artistic and romantic desires.
Philosophical film with big ideas, delicately handled.
Poignant tribute to "useless" people and how much they can mean to us.
Magnificent and tragic film on refugees of Partition (and worldwide).
Poignant tribute to how an older generation is edged out of our lives.
Der TIGER VON ESCHNAPUR
Brazen chutzpah and superb craftsmanship, despite the fantasies and cliches on India: it was Lang's "comeback" film, kick-ass antidote to Hollywood, post his Hollywood phase!
Generous and heartfelt tribute to an artistic competition/rival and to cinema itself.
36 Chowringhee Lane
Poignant observation on ageing and loneliness and the selfishness of youth.
Haunting elegy for a humanist way of life.
Die ABENTEUER DES PRINZEN ACHMED
Extraordinary art with paper, scissors and film.
