  • Untouchable [DVD] Untouchable | DVD | (04/02/2013) from £4.18  |  Saving you £15.81 (79.10%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Driss (Omar Sy), a Senegalese man living in a Paris slum, applies for a job as caretaker to a wealthy quadriplegic, but all he wants is to get his paper stamped so he can get benefits. Despite his lack of qualifications, he lands the job because of his attitude: Philippe (François Cluzet), the quadriplegic, wants a caretaker who will look at him without pity. As Driss reluctantly learns to move, feed, and clean Philippe, the two men discover a blunt but vital humour that not only bridges the cultural and class divide between them, but gives Philippe a renewed joy in life. It's easy to see what made Untouchable such a massive success in France; the movie has the sweet sincerity and uplifting conclusion that make for a classic feel-good experience. The chemistry between the two leads is undeniable, and Sy--who won the French equivalent of the Oscar for his role--is a dynamic and charismatic performer, while Cluzet's understated performance conveys Philippe's frustrations. The movie doesn't dig too deeply into the struggles of life as a quadriplegic or the struggles of life among the inner-city poor, so when Untouchable ends it's not likely to leave a lasting impression, but that doesn't get in the way of its immediate charm and warmth. --Bret Fetzer

  • Slumdog Millionaire [DVD] Slumdog Millionaire | DVD | (01/06/2009) from £2.99  |  Saving you £15.78 (78.90%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Danny Boyle (Sunshine) directed this wildly energetic, Dickensian drama about the desultory life and times of an Indian boy whose bleak, formative experiences lead to an appearance on his country's version of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" Jamal (played as a young man by Dev Patel) and his brother are orphaned as children, raising themselves in various slums and crime-ridden neighorhoods and falling in, for a while, with a monstrous gang exploiting children as beggars and prostitutes. Driven by his love for Latika (Freida Pinto), Jamal, while a teen, later goes on a journey to rescue her from the gang's clutches, only to lose her again to another oppressive fate as the lover of a notorious gangster. Running parallel with this dark yet irresistible adventure, told in flashback vignettes, is the almost inexplicable sight of Jamal winning every challenge on "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?," a strong showing that leads to a vicious police interrogation. As Jamal explains how he knows the answer to every question on the show as the result of harsh events in his knockabout life, the chaos of his existence gains shape, perspective and soulfulness. The film's violence is offset by a mesmerizing exotica shot and edited with a great whoosh of vitality. Boyle successfully sells the story's most unlikely elements with nods to literary and cinematic conventions that touch an audience's heart more than its head. --Tom Keogh Stills from Slumdog Millionaire (Click for larger image)    

  • Trainspotting [1996] Trainspotting | DVD | (01/10/1999) from £13.48  |  Saving you £6.51 (32.60%)  |  RRP £19.99

    The film that effectively launched the star careers of Robert Carlyle, Ewan McGregor and Jonny Lee Miller is a hard, barbed picaresque, culled from the bestseller by Irvine Welsh and thrown down against the heroin hinterlands of Edinburgh. Directed with abandon by Danny Boyle, Trainspotting conspires to be at once a hip youth flick and a grim cautionary fable. Released on an unsuspecting public in 1996, the picture struck a chord with audiences worldwide and became adopted as an instant symbol of a booming British rave culture (an irony, given the characters' main drug of choice is heroin not ecstasy).McGregor, Lee Miller and Ewen Bremner play a slouching trio of Scottish junkies; Carlyle their narcotic-eschewing but hard-drinking and generally psychotic mate Begbie. In Boyle's hands, their lives unfold in a rush of euphoric highs, blow-out overdoses and agonising withdrawals (all cued to a vogueish pop soundtrack). Throughout it all, John Hodge's screenplay strikes a delicate balance between acknowledging the inherent pleasures of drug use and spotlighting its eventual consequences. In Trainspotting's world view, it all comes down to a question of choices--between the dangerous Day-Glo highs of the addict and the grey, grinding consumerism of the everyday Joe. "Choose life", quips the film's narrator (McGregor) in a monologue that was to become a mantra. "Choose a job, choose a starter home... But why would anyone want to do a thing like that?" Ultimately, Trainspotting's wised-up, dead-beat inhabitants reject mainstream society in favour of a headlong rush to destruction. It makes for an exhilarating, energised and frequently terrifying trip that blazes with more energy and passion than a thousand more ostensibly life-embracing movies. --Xan Brooks

  • Goodbye Lenin! (2002) Goodbye Lenin! (2002) | DVD | (03/09/2007) from £5.11  |  Saving you £14.88 (74.40%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Much like the Berlin Wall upon which much of the film hinges, Wolfgang Becker's delightful Goodbye Lenin pitches itself halfway between the spartan family theatrics of Thomas Vinterberg's Festen and the verdant sentimentality of Pedro Almodovar's All About My Mother.It's Germany, 1989, and Christiane, a staunch supporter of East Germany's socialist regime, collapses in the street as her son, Alexander, is dragged into the back of a Stasi van amidst the violence and mayhem of a peaceful protest gone wrong. A heart attack leaves Christiane in a coma for 8 tumultuous months in which the Berlin Wall falls and East and West Germany tentatively embrace reunification. Upon her waking, the doctors inform son Alexander and daughter Ariana that the slightest shock is likely to kill their mother - so Alexander hatches a plan, a plan that will see East Germany immortalised within the confines of his mother's bedroom.Alexander, played with suitable intensity by Daniel Bruhl (he looks like Ahston Kuchler, of MTV's Punk'd, but he acts like Spiderman's Tobey Maguire) - is forced to hunt out abandoned jars of Spreewald Pickles, film news stories with his Kubrick-loving buddy explaining the appearance of huge Coca Cola billboards across the street and pay children to pretend to be former pupils of his mother - all to maintain the pretence of the continued existence of East Germany.Striking precisely the right balance between the sour reality experienced by many East Germans (old man Gdanske prowls around the periphery of the movie howling for the bad old days, Alexander and Ariane find themselves cheated out of thousands of Deutschmarks by the bank), and the lightness required to make what is essentially dark material comic, Becker fashions what many consider to be something of a first: a dazzling German comedy.

  • Agatha Christie's Poirot - The Definitive Collection (Series 1-13) [DVD] Agatha Christie's Poirot - The Definitive Collection (Series 1-13) | DVD | (18/11/2013) from £66.95  |  Saving you £-9.99 (-16.60%)  |  RRP £60

  • Ghost In The Shell [Blu-ray] Ghost In The Shell | Blu Ray | (20/03/2017) from £8.49  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £N/A

    The skilful blending of drawn animation and computer-generated imagery excited anime fans when this science fiction mystery was released in 1995: many enthusiasts believe Ghost suggests what the future of anime will be, at least in the short term. The film is set in the not-too-distant future, when an unnamed government uses lifelike cyborgs or "enhanced" humans for undercover work. One of the key cyborgs is The Major, Motoko Kusanagi, who resembles a cross between The Terminator and a Playboy centrefold. She finds herself caught up in a tangled web of espionage and counterespionage as she searches for the mysterious superhacker known as "The Puppet Master." Mamoru Oshii directs with a staccato rhythm, alternating sequences of rapid-fire action (car chases, gun battles, explosions) with static dialogue scenes that allow the characters to sort out the vaguely mystical and rather convoluted plot. Kusanagi's final quote from I Corinthians suggests that electronic evolution may compliment and eventually supplant organic evolution. The minor nudity, profanity, and considerable violence would earn Ghost in the Shell at least a PG rating. --Charles Solomon

  • Breaking the Waves [DVD] Breaking the Waves | DVD | (10/11/2014) from £8.19  |  Saving you £7.80 (48.80%)  |  RRP £15.99

    Set in an unmercifully rugged, coastal village in Scotland in the 1970s, this extraordinary film by Lars von Trier stars British actress Emily Watson as a naive girl named Bess, who holds regular conversations with God and whose pure and intensely personal faith is hardly tolerated by the gruesome Calvinist elders of her church. Bess marries an oil-rig worker (Stellan Skarsgård) and comes to believe that erotic discovery is a part of God's grand plan. But after her spouse is hurt in an accident, she decides that divine instruction is leading her towards the life of a prostitute--with disastrous but somehow beautiful results. Von Trier (The Idiots, Dancer in the Dark) has made a wonderful, entirely unexpected and rigourous work of discovery in this film, with a formal visual design that recalls classic films by Carl Theodor Dreyer and Robert Bresson. Watson is a phenomenon, her wide-eyed wonder at the world as God's handiwork is a breathtaking portrayal of conviction. --Tom Keogh, Amazon.com

Soon the sisters find themselves locked in their bedrooms, with sober dress enforced and their schoolwork replaced by cookery classes. Their home now a prison, all the girls have to live for are arranged marriages and family honour. But together, driven by strength, courage and a desire for freedom, the five sisters fight back against the limits imposed on them and test their family ties to breaking point.
