Released 26th November 2007

Finally receiving a release after some frustrating delays is Frantisek Vlácil's masterpiece. Set in the 13th Century it is an ambitious, multi-layered medieval epic, and is a stunning piece of cinema. It has recently been voted as the best Czech film of all time.

Aka L'Albero degli Zoccoli. A superb film portrait of peasant life in turn-of-the-century Lombardy. Written, directed, shot and edited by Ermanno Olmi. A popular Winner of the Palme d'Or,
