    Tim Roth stars in Mexico’s submission for the Academy Award directed by Gabriel Ripstein. Arnulfo Rubio smuggles weapons for a deadly Mexican cartel. ATF agent Hank Harris (Roth) attempts to apprehend him, but gets kidnapped by Rubio, instead. Rubio takes him to his bosses, but during the 600-miles-long drive, they slowly befriend one another. 600 Miles is a thriller, a road movie and a relationship drama: a nail biter to the very last frame with superb performances. Winner of Berlin Film Festival Best First Feature Award.

    Prolific artist, philosopher, writer, storyteller and "radical humanist" John Berger is the focus of Tilda Swinton’s vivid four-part cinematic portrait. In 1973, he moved from urban London to the tiny Alpine village of Quincy. THE SEASONS IN QUINCY: FOUR PORTRAITS OF JOHN BERGER examines different aspects of Berger's life in this remote village in the Alps. In four seasonal chapters, the film combines ideas and motifs from his work with the texture and history of his mountain home. A terrific insight into the creative process: perfect for our Arts In Film section.

    Benjamin, winemaker, sees his wife die in his arms following a long illness. Only one way for him: death. But a young Japanese woman, coming specially to taste his wine, will gently bring him to mourn the death of his wife by a series of symbols and exchanges between two cultures. A moving portrayal by French actor/winemaker Gérard Depardieu put this film at the top of our favorites.
