FRIDAY FEBRUARY 22
From the director of Leviathan, the film is initially a portrait of a failed marriage in its awful final stages. After a particularly nasty row, Alyosha, their son, disappears. The couple’s unhappiness is magnified by rage and self hatred. The film confronts us with the most ghastly of crises – was the lovelessness of their family to blame? The Russia in this film looks barren and bleak but its brilliance and compassion are compelling.

London, 1969 – two ‘resting’ (unemployed and unemployable) actors, Withnail and Marwood, fed up with damp, cold, piles of washing-up, mad drug dealers and psychotic Irishmen, decide to leave their squalid Camden flat for an idyllic holiday in the countryside, courtesy of Withnail’s uncle Monty’s country cottage. But when they get there, it rains non-stop, there’s no food, and their basic survival skills turn out to be somewhat limited. Matters are not helped by the arrival of Uncle Monty, who shows an uncomfortably keen interest in Marwood…
