I must flee you, Mademoiselle, that I can see: I should not have waited nearly so long, or rather it were better never to have laid eyes on you.

The Dark (2005)

In mourning over the tragic drowning of their daughter Sarah, James and Adèle are visited by Ebrill, a young girl who claims she died 60 years ago and bares a startling resemblance to Sarah.
Although it has its scary moments - the photopgraphy is excellent - the movie is marred by an obscurantist plot and an incomprehensive open ending.

Charles Bradley: Soul of America (2012)

The rise of 62-year-old aspiring soul singer Charles Bradley, whose debut album rocketed him from a hard life in the Brooklyn Housing Projects to Rolling Stone Magazine's top 50 albums of 2011.

Intimate and compelling documentary on an artist struggling hard and finding success at a high age that also illustrates the social environment in which Charles Bradley lives and from where his music finds its inspiration.

The Hudsucker Proxy (1994)

A naive business graduate is installed as president of a manufacturing company as part of a stock scam.

Coen Brothers' likable and entertaining homage to the good old days of cinema is a mixture of screwball comedy, newspaper movie and social satire; this time told more straighforward than usual.

Halliwell**: "Clever and enjoyable pastiche of Hollywood comedies of the 40s, close in spirit to Preston Sturges and an ending straight out of Frank Capra. It is stylzed, stylish and civilized entertainment."

Maltin***: "The Coen brothers' most extravagant creation to date, an eye-popping '50s fantasy of big business gone berserk, with Robbins absolutely perfect as the wide-eyed patsy who miraculously rises to the top. Newman is a crafty villain, and Leigh is fun (if a bit one-note) as a fast-talking, Kate Hepburn-ish reporter."
