Divine OrderThe Divine Order (2017; German/Swiss German)

Dir: Petra Volpe, Ihr 36mins Colour 12A

In 1971, a young housewife organizes the women of her town to petition for the right to vote. With this good-humoured comedy-drama, writer-director Petra Volpe gives us the fictional story of a housewife who finds her voice during the Swiss referendum. Watch out men, this is a “triple F” rated film – a female-led film, written and directed by a woman! (IMDB; Guardian)

Land of MineLand of Mine (2015; Danish/German)

Dir: Martin Zandfliett, 1hr 40mins Colour, 15

In post-World War II Denmark, a group of young German POWs are forced to clear a beach of thousands of land mines under the watch of a Danish Sergeant who slowly learns to appreciate their plight. Land of Mine uses an oft-forgotten chapter from the aftermath of World War II to tell a hard-hitting story whose period setting belies its timeless observations about bloodshed and forgiveness. (IMDB; Rotten Tomatoes)

Cold WarCold War (2018; Polish/French/German)

Dir: Pawel Pawlikowski, 1hrs 28mins. B & W, 15

A passionate love story between two people of different backgrounds and temperaments, who are fatefully mismatched, set against the background of the Cold War in the 1950s in Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris. Ida director Paweł Pawlikowski’s exquisitely chilling Soviet-era drama maps the dark heart of Poland itself. Visually stunning, with a soundtrack to match. (IMDB; Guardian)

Nile HiltonThe Nile Hilton Incident (2017; Arabic)

Dir: Tariq Saleh, 1hr 48mins.Colour 15

A maid witnesses a murder at an upscale hotel and a policeman is assigned to the case, but it soon becomes clear that important people don’t want the case solved. The Nile Hilton Incident indicts real-life corruption with a simmering rage brought to a boil by Fares Fares’ gripping performance. (IMDB; Rotten Tomatoes)

Hotel SalvationHotel Salvation (2016; Hindi)

Dir: Shubhashish Bhutiani 1hr 42mins. Colour PG

A 77 year-old father decides to end his days in the holy city of Varanasi and attain salvation, with his son accompanying him. This beautifully rendered film, the debut of young director Shubhashish Bhutiani, enacts a subtle family comedy-drama that anyone who has spent time with an ageing parent could relate to easily. A gentle charmer of a film – life, death and marijuana-laced lassis in a trippy Indian arthouse flick! (BFI; Guardian)
