Based on the novel by renowned South African author, Zakes Mda.

The seaside village of Hermanus is overrun with whale-watchers; foreign tourists determined to see whales in their natural habitat. But when the tourists have gone home, the Whale Caller lingers at the shoreline, wooing a whale he has named Sharisha with cries from a kelp horn. When Sharisha fails to appear for weeks on end, the whale caller frets like a jealous lover, oblivious to the fact that the town drunk, Saluni, a woman who wears a silk dress and red stiletto heels, is infatuated with him.

The two misfits eventually fall in love. But each of them is ill equipped for romance, and their relationship suggests the deeper concern is not so much the fragility of love, but the fragility of life itself when one surrenders wholly to the foolish heart.

Two French acting greats, Catherine Deneuve and Catherine Frot, share the screen for the very first time in The Midwife, a bright and charming drama about old acquaintances and new beginnings from celebrated director Martin Provost (Séraphine, Violette).

Conscientious, inhibited and perhaps a little self-righteous, midwife Claire is stuck in a rut. After years of placing other people before herself, she’s worried she might have been left behind. One day, however, an unexpected phone call changes everything. The call is from her father’s former mistress, Béatrice, a capricious free spirit who’s been off-grid since she walked out on them over three decades ago.

As circumstances reunite these two polar-opposites, flighty Béatrice is forced to consider her responsibilities, while uptight Claire finally learns to let go of her troubles. Sparkling with humour, tenderness and mischievous charm, Provost’s film provides a perfect canvas for its tour-de-force lead performances.

A bold and buoyant two-hander, The Midwife is a bewitching and unapologetic celebration of life’s loves, losses and endless fresh surprises.

Starring iconic actress Isabelle Huppert in a career-defining role, Elle is already one of the most acclaimed films of the year and earned a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress as well as an Oscar nomination.

Upending our expectations, Michèle begins to track down her assailant, and soon they are both drawn into a curious and thrilling game, one that at any moment may spiral out of control. From legendary filmmaker Paul Verhoeven, Elle is a gripping psychological noir thriller. Exhilarating and multi-layered, the film recalls the ambience of Hitchcock, De Palma and Polanski, with a thrilling cerebral edge.

Meet Ove, an isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse - the quintessential angry old man next door. Having entirely given up on life, his days are spent in a constant monotony of enforcing housing association rules and visiting his beloved wife Sonja’s grave.

The winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, Blue Is The Warmest Colour is the stunning portrait of a relationship, detailed in its portrayal yet exploring emotions and situations universal to us all, this is a towering achievement in cinema.

That is until a chance encounter with a beguiling blue-haired girl (a luminescent Léa Seydoux) turns her world upside down, forcing her to question her desires and assert herself as a woman and as an adult.

Jaw-droppingly frank in its sexual content, mesmerisingly beautiful as an artistic accomplishment and utterly compelling from start to finish, this is gripping, engrossing cinema in its rawest, purest form and one of the most celebrated and talked-about films of the year.
