Three disabled men embark on a ‘wine tour’ to Spain in order to lose their virginity in this twist on a familiar tale. Jozef is blind, Philip is paralysed from the neck down and Lars suffers from a brain tumour and so they carefully enlist Claude, a middle aged midwife on the run from her husband, to help with their cover story, and to do the driving.

As part of the trip, Madeleine and her new husband, George, drop in on his family, where Madeleine is far from warmly received. That is, apart from George’s very pregnant sister Ashley (Amy Adams at her best) who does her utmost to help Madeleine deal with the rest of the family. Once Ashley goes into labour however, tensions threaten to boil over.
Little Red Flowers | Yuan Zhang | 2006 | China, Italy | 92 mins | 12
Four year old Qiang, a rebellious and independent child, is sent to study at a Beijing boarding school as his parents are frequently travelling. Though unable to conform to the strict environment Qiang still longs for the red paper flowers awarded to well-behaved students. Qiang tries to use his wit and creativity to turn his fellow students against their teacher, convincing them she is a child eating monster. Though charming and humorous Little Red Flowers also presents a satirical look at post-war China and the battle between individuality and conformity.
More Than Honey | Markus Imhoof | 2012 | Switzerland, Germany, Austria | 95 mins |E
Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Markus Imhoof sets his sights on the plight of the humble bee. Responsible for pollinating 80% of plant species, and with 1/3rd of the food we eat reliant on bees their decline is of great importance. Markus’s documentary presents a convincing argument for the importance of bees and the fascinating role they play in our ecosystems. Imhoof also contributes some incredible photography giving us an intimate look inside the world of the bees.
