In Louis Hartlooper and Springhaver you can see the best foreign language films with English subtitles at our monthly screenings: Language no problem. This means that people who don’t understand Dutch can now also enjoy a French, Dutch, Italian or Danish production. The selection for this programme is not random. We will always choose a film we feel is a must-see for everyone. For example, in October we showed the opening picture of the Netherlands Film Festival for 2018: Niemand in de stad (No one in the city) by Michiel van Erp. In November we showed a big favourite from the Cannes Film Festival: Girl by Lukas Dhont. As always films from Britain or the US will still be shown in their original language with Dutch subtitles.
Cold War | Pawel Pawlikovski
Polish romantic drama by Academy Award winner Pawel Pawlikowski (Ida and My Summer of Love). In his search for young artists for a Polish folklore ensemble , musician Wiktor’s eye catches the young and free spirited Zula. There is an instant attraction between them, but they are constantly on the run between East and West. They cannot live apart nor can they be together: an impossible romance in an impossible time. Cold War was selected for the Official Selection at the Cannes Film Festival where Pawlikowski was awarded Best Director.
Japanese drama by acclaimed director Hirokazu Koreedo. Osamu and his son return from one of their regular shoplifting sprees and meet a lost little girl outside in the cold. When it turns out she has run away from home, Osama decides to take her home with him where she is welcomed by his family. They live a happy life despite their limited resources, having to resort to stealing in order to get by. An unexpected turn exposes hidden secrets, severely straining familial bonds. Winner of the Palme d’Or 2018, the grand prize at the Cannes Film Festival.
