The Double Life of Veronique (Krzysztof Kieślowski, 1991) – 18 March

Taste of Cherry (Abbas Kiarostami, 1997) – 18 March

In The Mood For Love (Wong Kar Wai, 2000) – 18 March

“Bresson confirmed us a donkey will be an attention-grabbing and complicated as a human being.”
Modern Times (Charles Chaplin, 1936) – 18 March

A Short Film About Love (Krzysztof Kieślowski, 1988) – 18 March
“Initially a part of Dekalog. Later expanded by Kieślowski into a movie. Olaf Lubaszenko and Grazyna Szapoloska is my favorite ‘couple’ ever in a movie. A heartbreaking movie.”
The Piano Teacher (Michael Hanake, 2001) – 18 March
“A disturbing expertise. Must be watched with a view to watch Isabelle Huppert’s good efficiency. Traditional Hanake.”
