He very gently sets about winning over first the children, by providing them with a place to play and learn, and then works on their parents. The church slowly becomes the focal point of the community and very quickly ends up full with standing room only. There's a heavy Mafia presence in the community but the priest stands up to them and encourages his parishioners to do the same. He does this effectively and suffers the consequences as the antagonism grows between him and the Mafia. Based on a true story, the ending is truly heart-rending.The acting is superb all round, the children in particular are very genuine and believable. The character of the priest is in keeping with the benign and virtuous Monatlbano and Zingaretti gives a powerful performance in this truly wonderful movie This movie is a must have for any Inspector Montalbano or Luca Zingaretti fan
Breaking the Waves | Blu Ray | (10/11/2014)
from £9.79 | Saving you £10.20 (51.00%) | RRP
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

When Ryuhei Sasaki (played by Teruyuki Kagawa) is unceremoniously dumped from his ‘safe’ company job, his family's happy, humdrum life is put at risk. Unwilling to accept the shame of unemployment, the loyal salaryman decides not to tell anyone, instead leaving home each morning in suit and tie with briefcase, spending his days searching for work and lining up for soup with the homeless. Outstanding performances; serene, elegant direction; and Kurosawa's trademark chills are evident as he ratchets up the unsettling atmosphere and the grim hopelessness of Sasaki's unemployment. Special Dual Format Edition includes: 1080p Blu-Ray transfer in the original aspect ratio Making of documentary Q&A, Tokyo, September 2008 Premiere footage, Tokyo, September 2008 DVD discussion UK Trailer 28 page colour booklet
