Film round-up: 30/06/2014 – 06/07/2014


This is it. If you are reading this, dear The Edge‘s followers, it means that you have successfully survived the madness of moving out! We all think you deserve a treat; here is this week’s film round-up so you can go out and celebrate at the cinema. You’re welcome.

The 100 Year-Old-Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared starts this week’s releases on a rather long, but intriguing note. Allan Karlsson’s decides to flee on his birthday. Only, he is a 100 Year-Old dynamite expert and lives in an old folk’s home. The film is an adaptation of Jonas Jonasson’s very successful debut novel, published in 2009.

The Anomaly sees Ian Somerhalder leaving the fantasy world and its vampires to star in this science-fiction film directed by Noel Clarke. A former solider (Noel Clarke) has 9 minutes to figure out how to get out of the van he just woke up into after being taken captive.

Bobby Jasoos is a thriller arriving directly from Bollywood. Bobby wants to be the number one detective of Hyderabad. The film follows him in his adventures, celebrating his aspirations.

Cycling With Molière allies the writing of successful French actor Fabrice Luchini, director Philipe Le Guay and writer Emmanuel Carrère into a story focusing on a theatrical production. Two actors have to find compromises for the play they are working on. How will these two egocentric men manage to put their temper aside?

Goddess relates the story of Elspeth Dickens who desperately tries to find her “voice” whilst being stuck in an removed farmhouse with her two twin sons. To so doing, she decides to make the most of nowadays’ technology and invest in a web-cam. Directed by no less than Mark Lamprell, who graced us with the scenario of Babe: Pig In The City, the film has the promise to be a very entertaining, and hopefully sometimes strange, musical.

Here and Now stays within the country setting, but completely changes the tone. Grace, a proper city-girl, is dragged to the countryside by her parents, who are trying to save their marriage. Say, a country boy, finds Grace both obnoxious and attractive. As you can guess, the film focuses on the pair, and the evolution of their relationship.

Tammy already marks the return of Enough Said‘s director on big screens. After losing her job and being cheated on by her husband, Tammy leaves on a road-trip with her profane, hard-drinking grandmother. Sounds like there would be worst ways to deal with so much drama at once.

The Year and The Vineyard (El Año Y La Viña) finishes this film round-up as it started, with a (shorter) intriguing note. A man falls through a hole in time in 1937, directly to a small village in 2012. Defined as a aromatic fantasy drama by the BBFC, it would definitely be worth digging a screening somewhere, especially if you are near the capital.
