This suspenseful and intelligent drama details the fractures and tensions at the heart of Iranian society.  When his wife leaves him, Nader hires a young woman to take care of his suffering father.  Unaware that his new maid is not only pregnant but also working without the permission of her unstable husband, Nader soon finds himself entangled in a web of lies and manipulation.


Quote from H'west film society FACEBOOK page:

"A very successful start to the season, with a 94% audience approval rating for "Midnight in Paris". Voting slips showed a unanimous high rating. Comments included: 'Witty, different, some great lines', 'Loved the music', and the reference to the surreal: 'Do you think if I took a walk around Haverfordwest at midnight, I might meet some interesting people??!' Who knows? It's a town full of history. Look out for that car as the clock strikes twelve ..."

A beguiling tale of a young man on the threshold of work, love and adulthood.  Domenico lands a job in the "Technical Division" and works as an underutilized errand boy until a clerk position is vacated by the death of an older employee. The reward of office life seems to be a future of drudgery.


Last weeks film did not go down quite as well, but this week there is something special (IMHO)

grim, grim, grim!
Dog kicked to death!
Continuous foul language!
Child cruelty!
(another) dog beaten to death!  ...........followed by redemption!

However, I left rating it an "A" Film, but with my nerves jangling!  An 'in your face' sort of film that leaves you wondering how you managed to stick it out, but you are glad you did.  However, I will not be buying the DVD for my collection!

Ricky has a dream: To make his group of paraplegic musicians the best band in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Spanning five years from the first rehearsals this uplifting film charts their progress. It invites the viewer to take a plunge into the streets of Kinshasa without a safety net but accompanied by some irresistible toe-tapping tunes.


Bother, I missed tonight's film as I'm 'Granny Sitting'

I bet it gets a good rating!
