    35 years ago, Finnish deadpan master Aki Kaurismäki (FALLEN LEAVES, LE HAVRE) achieved a significant international breakthrough with this beloved road movie following the adventures of an inept Siberian rock ’n’ roll band. Somewhere in the tundra, in no-man’s land, lives the worst band in the world, an outfit with no audience and absolutely no commercial potential. Yet they long for success, so when their manager suggests they head to the USA, the band is prepared to sacrifice their cultural identity for a shot at the big-time. Thus, with matching projectile pompadours and pointed shoes, a music style that weds rockabilly with Finnish folk tunes, and the frozen corpse of their bass player strapped to the roof of their stretch Cadillac (purchased from a dealer played by Jim Jarmusch), the Leningrad Cowboys make their way towards Mexico across a landscape of warped Americana… Infused with Kaurismäki’s signature dry wit and generosity of spirit, the film spawned two sequels, and brought the fictional band a major real-life following!

    The eagerly anticipated new film from writer/director Gustav Möller (THE GUILTY), Sons is a gripping moral thriller that offers an extraordinary showcase for the remarkable Sidse Babett Knudsen (BORGEN, WILDLAND) in the leading role. Idealistic Eva (Babette Knudsen) works in the minimum-security ward of a correctional facility, overseeing the incarcerated men with an almost maternalistic sense of compassion, guiding them in meditations and showing genuine interest in - and empathy for - their wellbeing. But all this changes when Mikkel (Sebastian Bull), a swaggering offender, is transferred to the facility, and without revealing her motives to her superiors, Eva requests to be reassigned to his high-security block. So begins an unsettling and dangerous game of cat and mouse in which Eva’s increasingly unhealthy preoccupation with Mikkel challenges her belief in restorative justice, and places much more than her job at stake. Moller’s atmospheric new thriller packs a genuine punch and is a must-see for fans of both Scandi noir and its phenomenal star, who delivers arguably a career-best performance.

    Direct from the 2024 Cannes Film Festival, where it was the opening film of the UN CERTAIN REGARD section, WHEN THE LIGHT BREAKS is a poetic drama set over a single, seemingly endless summer’s day in Reykjavik, Iceland. From one sunset to another, young art student Una (a remarkable Elín Hall) is on a rollercoaster ride of emotion as she navigates a series of challenging events swirling around her. A tragic event forces her to bond with a new group of friends and as she grapples with grief, she also harbours a secret and is unable to fully express her emotions. Highlighting the unique, ethereal twilight of the Icelandic summer, it delves into group dynamics as national and personal tragedy collide, and Una must face the first big challenge of her adult life. Written and directed by Oscar-Nominated Icelandic director Rúnar Rúnarsson, this deeply moving coming-of-age drama presents a poignant young-adult exploration of grief, sorrow, love, beauty and friendship.
