ARABIAN NIGHTS: VOLUME 3, THE ENCHANTED ONE

DIRECTOR: Miguel Gomes - PORTUGAL

“Gomes’s sui generis epic concludes with arguably its most eccentric—and most enthralling—installment. Scheherazade escapes the king for an interlude of freedom in Old Baghdad, envisioned here as a sunny Mediterranean archipelago complete with hippies and break-dancers. After her eventual return to her palatial confines comes the most lovingly protracted of all the stories in Arabian Nights, a documentary chronicle of Lisbon-area bird trappers preparing their prized finches for birdsong competitions. Right to the end, Gomes’s film balances the leisurely art of the tall tale with a sense of deadline urgency—a reminder that for Scheherazade, and perhaps for us all, stories...

IN THE SHADOW OF WOMEN

DIRECTOR: Philippe Garrel - FRANCE

Philippe Garrel’s romantic drama is an examination of marital infidelity and a freewheeling riff on life, art, and the never ending battle of the sexes. Married couple Pierre and Manon (Stanislas Merhar and Clotilde Courau) collaborate on making documentaries. While researching a current subject—an aging Resistance fighter—at a film archive, Pierre falls hard for Elisabeth (Lena Paugam), a beautiful young intern. When Manon discovers the affair, her reaction surprises both Pierre and herself. Garrel deftly manages to depict the characters’ different perspectives in a realistic and sometimes comical way, providing a fresh take on an old story: the mindset of...

AFERIM!

DIRECTOR: Radu Jude - ROMANIA

Jude won Best Director at the Berlin Film Festival for this visionary historical epic — a European “Eastern” to an American Western.

Constable Costandin and his son have been dispatched by a nobleman to track down a runaway slave accused of seducing the landowner’s wife. Foul-mouthed and quick-tempered, Costandin rides roughshod on the local peasantry in his search, explaining to his teenaged son that he’s upholding the social order.

SCHNEIDER VS. BAX

DIRECTOR: Alex Van Warmerdam - NETHERLANDS

The twists and turns surprise in this unsparing, deadpan, black comedy. Schneider, a contract killer, gets a phone call from Mertens who has a rush job for Schneider. The killer refuses to take it; it’s his birthday and he has promised his wife to help with the celebratory dinner. Mertens stresses that it is important and needs to be done that day. “It’s Ramon Bax, a writer over sixty. He lives on his own on a lake. He’s got no neighbors. It’s an easy job, you’ll be back before lunchtime.” Reluctantly, Schneider agrees, but the easy job turns out to...
