A young samurai rises to power in the 12th-century struggles between land-owning nobles and the Buddhist clergy – only to be undone by his own arrogance and vanity. The control of colour and design (scrupulously researched, as usual) and vivid performances from a large ensemble cast make sense of the complicated historiography.

While investigating the murder of a beautiful singer, Detective Naredin becomes enmeshed in a game played out at the highest levels of Egyptian politics. Neither old nor new alliances can be trusted, and as the 2011 revolution approaches, Cairo is becoming more and more dangerous. The movie, which betrays a predilection for the noir tradition, won at Sundance.

Nina is twelve years old and her world has just been shattered to smithereens: Her parents’ marriage has broken down and they are getting a divorce. After his internationally successful feature debut Miracle Juraj Lehotský now brings us an intimate drama in which the viewer looks upon the world and the selfish, visionless behaviour of adults through the eyes of a 12-year-old girl. A girl who is resilient and belligerent, but also vulnerable and just as fragile as the miniature world she creates for herself in the garden shed.

One day, workers at an elevator factory receive an unpleasant surprise: at night someone has taken away all the equipment and materials, so it’s impossible to continue production. The struggle for existence is on – not only via sophisticated negotiating tactics but also with the help of singing, dancing, and vaguely idealistic leftist theories.

A young farm girl named Liina is hopelessly in love with Hans, and she’s willing to do anything to secure his affections… One of the most original cinematic achievements of the season, the film is set in a pagan Estonian community where werewolves roam, the greedy villagers steal whatever they can lay their hands on, they have to cope with the plague, and hovering over them all is an ensemble of kratts, peculiar creatures made of metal and wood. Best Cinematography at Tribeca.
