Other notable DVDs released in May 2008 that we recommend : -

The Air I Breathe

Released 20th May 2008

Every so often a film comes along that triumphs despite a patchy (Brendan Fraser) and often mismatched (Sarah Michelle Gellar) cast. This superior crime drama is such a film.

Dans Paris

Released 6th May 2008

Christophe Honore's 2006 follow up to controversial Ma Mere starring Isabelle Huppert, is a more accessible movie than would have been expected, and is a surprisingly watchable tragi-comedy.

The Cottage

Released 13th May 2008

Superb 2007 British horror com. Not as quite good as Shaun Of The Dead, but then again what is?

Le Gai Savoir

Released 13th May 2008

From 1968, one of Jean-Luc Godard's most unpromising, but ultimately, most rewarding features.

The Willow Tree

Majid Majidi's 2007 film about a man blind from birth who regains his sight to see the world in a very different way.

The Violin
