ON BODY AND SOUL:
Nominated for Foreign Language Film at the 2018 Oscars, On Body and Soul is set on the outskirts of Budapest, where two employees of a small abattoir discover that they have the same dream. Endre, the finance director, and Mária, the new control inspector, meet as deer in a forest and fall in love. The two loners decide to make these dreams come true, but soon find that things are not as easy in real life. The film was a hit at film festivals, scooping up 8 award wins including four awards at the Berlin International Film Festival 2017, and the Golden Frog at Camerimage 2017.
THE HAPPIEST DAY IN THE LIFE OF OLLI MÄKI:
The true story of famous Finnish boxer Olli Mäki, who had a shot at winning the 1962 World Featherweight title. The black-and-white Finnish biographical drama follows the boxer as he trains for the fight. Olli finds himself swept to national stardom, and becomes a symbol of his country. All he needs to do for his fame and fortune is focus – but he has just fallen in love. Juho Kuosammen’s black-and-white Finnish biopic was a big hit on the festival circuit, and picked up the Un Certain Regard Award at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival among its numerous awards.
Félicité is a singer in a bar. When her fourteen-year-old son is injured in a motorcycle accident, she begins to frantically look for money for his operation. Félicité searches the streets of Kinshasa, capital city of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and a vibrant place full of dreams and music, which leads her to meet Tabu. Alain Gomis’ vivid film took home six awards on the festival circuit, including the Silver Berlin Bear for the Grand Jury Prize at the Berlin Film Festival, and was nominated for even more.
Oliver Laxe’s film follows a dying sheikh on his final journey on a caravan through the Moroccan Atlas. The sheikh’s dying wish was to be buried with his loved ones, but he dies before he reaches his destination. The caravaners then refuse to take the sheikh’s body any further, as they are afraid of the mountain. The task then falls to two rogues, Saïd and Ahmed, who had been travelling with the caravan and insist they know of another way to escort the sheikh’s body to his resting place. Mimosas won fourteen awards at film festivals around the world, including the Critics Week Prize from Cannes 2016.
All four films are available to screen now from the Booking Scheme.
