On Body and Soul

  • 3 stars
  • 2017
  • 1h 56min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Ildikó Enyedi
  • Cast: Géza Morcsányi, Alexandra Borbély, Zoltán Schneider

An unusual love story set in the everyday world, based around the duality of sleeping and waking, mind and matter. As the title suggests, it's a film that revels as much in the physical as the spiritual. One minute, we're in dreamland, the next we're watching a graphic shot of a cow being dismembered in the slaughterhouse…

  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 29min

  • Directed by: Gethin Aldous, Jairus McLeary
  • UK release: 8 September 2017

Documentary about a group therapy session in California’s Folsom State Prison; twice a year, members of the public are allowed to join prisoners and the film follows three men from one session.

Your Name

  • 5 stars
  • 2016
  • Japan

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Makoto Shinkai
  • Written by: Makoto Shinkai
  • Cast: Mone Kamashiraishi, Etsuko Ichihara, Ryûnosuke Kamiki
  • UK release: 18 November 2016

Country girl Mitsuha (Kamishiraishi) and city boy Taki (Kamiki) find themselves inexplicably transported into each other's bodies. A sweet love story told against a background of genuine tragedy, it has more philosophical meat than most grown-up dramas, and a finely wrought, emotionally charged payoff.
