swimming against the tide in more ways than one as the extravagant project gathers pace and a few
poignant home truths come home to roost.”

Danish coastal town. Philippa and Martina, the elderly daughters of the town's long-dead minister, take
Babette in. As revealed in flashback, Philippa and Martina were once beautiful young women, who'd
forsaken their chances at romance and fame, taking hollow refuge in religion. Babette holds a secret that
may very well allow the older ladies to have a second chance at life.

Dir: James Watkins Cast: Janet McTeer, Daniel Radcliffe, Ciaran Hinds, David Burke, Shaun Dooley

*Based on the classic ghost story by Susan Hill, The Woman In Black tells the tale of Arthur Kipps, a lawyer
who is forced to leave his young son and travel to a remote village to attend to the affairs of the recently
deceased owner of Eel Marsh House. Working alone in the old mansion, Kipps begins to uncover the town's
tragic and tortured secrets and his fears escalate when he finds that local children have been disappearing
under mysterious circumstances. When those closest to him become threatened by the vengeful woman in
black, Kipps must find a way to break the cycle of terror.
The Woman in Black is the UK's highest grossing British horror film since records began.

Dir: Daniel Auteuil Cast: Jean-Pierre Darroussin, Daniel Auteuil, Sabine Azema, Nicholas Duvauchelle
*Twenty-five years after rising to international acclaim in Jean de Florette and Manon of the Spring, Daniel
Auteuil returns to the world of Marcel Pagnol for his first work as director with this celebrated remake of the
1940s classic. Auteuil stars as the eponymous well-digger Pascale, a widower living with his six daughters in
the Provence countryside at the start of World War I. His eldest, Patricia, has returned home from Paris to
help raise her sisters, and Pascale dreams of marrying her off to his loyal assistant Felipe. But when she's

contend with the consequences.

Dir: Werner Herzog Cast: Klaus Kinski, Claudia Cardinale
* An intense and enthralling portrait of a driven man obsessed with capturing a shipping route on the
Amazon, even though it means hauling a boat over a mountain through hostile tribal territory and defeating
seemingly impossible obstacles. The boat was, of course, hauled over the mountain for real in the making of
the film - Herzog's most notorious filming feat.

The Chat Rouge ‘Red Cat’ legend began when several producers gathered under the beautiful
full harvest moon one night in the Beaujolais. Legend says the ‘Red Cat’ protected the
vineyards from the insects and animals that could do harm and damage to the vines and
grapes. These cats love to wander through the vineyards and villages under the bright
Beaujolais moonlight. It is said that these unusual cats looked true red in colour from the
reflection off the bright harvest moon above, which alarmed the villagers and other animals in
the area. Over time they became known as the guardians of the vines, so the winemakers
dedicated themselves to producing the best quality wines in honour of these ‘Red Cats’

1948, UK, 134 min, Cert U.
Dir: Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger Cast: Moira Shearer, Anton Walbrook, Marius Goring
*The Red Shoes is a film in total contrast to anything else emerging from the British cinema of the period.
Imaginative, magical, melodramatic, it is an extraordinary tale of romance and artistic obsession,
distinguished by flawless performances from Moira Shearer, Anton Walbrook and Marius Goring.
The story, echoed by the ballet within the film, is based on Hans Christian Anderson’s tale of a pair of
magical shoes that permit the wearer to achieve perfection in dance, but tragically will not allow her to stop.
A young dancer, Victoria, falls in love with a talented composer Julian, thus incurring the wrath of the
tyrannical impresario, Boris Lermontov, who predicts a brilliant future for her. Julian and Victoria marry, but
Lermontov ruthlessly attempts to come between them, threatening Victoria’s career and forcing her to
choose. Tragedy ensues’
