"Angelopoulos’ sixth film, the Golden Lion award winning Alexander The Great (O Megalexandros, 1980), is a perfect case in point. Covering most of the thematic concerns that have occupied Angelopoulos in his forty years of filmmaking, it’s a deeply allusive meditation on myth, history and modernity, political ideology and national identity, and the demands made of its audience extend far beyond its 199 minute running time."

This is the story of how these men's time shuddered to a halt when riot police entered the compound in October 1992 and shot dead 111 unarmed prisoners. From the direc find out more...

Trilogy consists of three stand alone stories, all set in Grenoble, and three different genres, thriller, comedy and melodrama, that taken as a whole become inextricably linked. A contemporary tour de force by Lucas Belvaux that calls to mind Kieslowski's ‘Three Colours' trilogy. In this emotive third film the only thing Pascal is sure of, in his increasingly complicated life, is his love for his wife, but with her descent into morphine addiction he can feel her slipping away from him. Pascal's find out more...
