Wolf Totem

China, France / 121 mins/ Mandarin, Mongolian / 2015
Direction:J J Annaud
1967. Chen Zhen, a young student from Beijing, is sent to Inner Mongolia to teach a nomadic tribe of shepherds. But it is Chen who has much to learn - about existence in this endless, harsh and breathtakingly beautiful wilderness, about community, freedom and responsibility, and about the most feared and revered creature of the steppes - the wolf. Seduced by the complex and near-mystical bond between these sacred creatures and the herdsmen, fascinated by their cunning, their strength, their ferocious beauty, he captures a cub and tries to tame it. But the growing relationship between man and animal – as well as the tribe’s ancient way of life, and the land itself - is threatened when a central government officer decides to eliminate all wolves from the region, whatever the cost. Jean-Jacques Annaud, internationally acclaimed director of Seven Years in Tibet, The Bear and Two Brothers, returns with Wolf Totem, his latest spectacular adventure into the heart of the natural world, based on the bestselling book by Jiang Rong.

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meagre supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible, rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney’s safe return.

Everything will be fine

Germany, Canada, France, Sweden, Norway / 118 mins / English / 2015

Direction: Wim Wenders

A winter’s evening. A country road. It is snowing, visibility is poor. Out of nowhere, a sledge glides down a hill. Brakes are slammed on, the car comes to a halt. Silence. Tomas, a novelist, is not to blame for this tragic accident, neither is little Christopher who could have kept a closer eye on his brother, nor Kate, the mother of the two, who could have called the children in earlier. Afterwards, it is as if Tomas has fallen into a deep pit. The relationship with his girlfriend Sara collapses under this burden. He seeks refuge in his writing and tries to establish a family of his own with Ann and her daughter Mina. The film carefully and precisely tells a story of guilt and the search for forgiveness, and the fact that it is not time that is a great healer but the courage to face up to things and to forgive. Especially oneself.
