Cinemas opening here this week

officially open later in the week but the Rotterdam film festival starts tomorrow and some of them are test events. gonna watch a documentary about Atletico Miniero tomorrow. not sure what else, like every year i’m totally overwhelmed with the timetable

Not a June release, but I really wanted to get to see Spring Blossom, the Suzanne Lindon film. She seems like a pretty extraordinary talent. Wasn’t sure what sort of film it would be going by the trailer. Hoped it would be more of a buddy movie than a sex thing, but not convinced. Has anyone seen it?

Also hoping to watch Surge this week. Love a bit of Wishaw and was blown away by the trailer. Looked a bit like a Safdi film. Could be a tough watch.

Thats one clunky title there


Really looking forward to Shiva Baby, and also hoping to see Mandabi and It Must Be Heaven in cinemas this month.

I am in a CINEMA and Minari is about to HAPPEN


Me too except for the minari part
Going to the cinema on a really hot day is smart actually, lovely air conditioning :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
Nobody else is as smart as me so its nearly empty

The next one’s going to be called:

Me and me Mum and me Dad and me Gran
And a bucket of Vindaloo

I’ve noticed that they’ve now got some Satyajit Ray films on both Amazon Prime and 4od

The Apu trilogy is on Amazon prime

Well worth a look, he’s a brilliant director…even though he’s part of ‘the canon’ it feels like he gets a lot less attention than some of his European peers

oh thanks for this - been wanting to see the Apu trilogy for quite some time

From what I can see the first two parts of the Apu trilogy are on Prime for all customers but you have to pay for the third one?

oh really? that’s annoying…doesn’t make sense at all

it’s very good, although i watched it like 15 years ago and think i’ve preferred some of his other films I’ve watched since

can’t wait for Annette

I’m guessing Bergman Island is a kind of biopic? I’ve come round to Mia Hansen Love so this could be intriguing
