A Blonde in LoveA Blonde in Love (1965)
Dir. Milos Forman
Feat. Hana Brejchova, Vladimir Pucholt, Vladimir Mensik
This early film from the director of AMADEUS tells the simple story of a young girl's search for a pianist with whom she spent the night. Forman achieves absolute realism with great warmth and humour.
Van GoghVan Gogh (1991)
Dir. Maurice Pialat
Feat. Jacques Dutronc
The ultra-naturalistic style of Maurice Pialat may not seem the best choice for a costume drama about probably the most-often filmed painter in history, but the director's eye for the unsensational and low-key pays dividends in this rewarding, occasionally disturbing film.

Pain and GloryPain and Glory (2019)
Dir. Pedro Almodovar
Feat. Antonio Banderas, Leonardo Sbaraglia, Penelope Cruz
A more restrained, but no less pretty and witty outing for septuagenarian director Pedro Almodóvar, which narrates evocative vignettes from the life of a fictional aging film director, reflecting on his past as he battles chronic illness and writer's block. A beautifully self-reflexive celebration of the…
In The AislesIn The Aisles (2018)
Dir. Thomas Stuber
Feat. Franz Rogowski, Sandra Huller
A German wholesale supermarket is the setting for this gentle romantic drama following a reclusive blue-collar shelf stacker (Andreas Leupold, TRANSIT) and his charming co-worker (Sandra Huller, TONI ERDMANN).
