La Famille Belier

Dir. Eric Lartigau (France 2014, 106mins 12)
A great crowd pleaser of tears and laughter in this rude exuberant film that was No 1 at the French box office of the teenage Paula (played by the wonderful Louane Emera) who has a God-given talent for singing but finds it hard to communicate her joy to her all-deaf family.

Mr Denning Drives North

Dir. Anthony Kimmins (UK 1952, 93mins 12)
Top-notch and off-beat British suspense thriller starring John Mills as a well-off aircraft
designer who tries to stop his daughter’s marriage (to Herbert Lom). Fine script with plenty
of twists and a cast of the best British actors of the time made for an entertaining movie.

The Salt of the Earth

Dir. Juliano Ribeiro Salgado, Wim Wenders (France 2014, 110mins 12)
Unmissable and shattering are typical audience responses to Wim Wender’s powerful documentary on the work of the extraordinary Brazilian photographer Sebastico Saljado, which treats human suffering with real humanity as he rejects any sense of despair.
