Parallel Mothers (15)

Two women, Janis and Ana, coincide in a hospital room where they are about to give birth. Both are single and became pregnant by accident. Janis, middle-aged, doesn't regret it and she is exultant. The other, Ana, an adolescent, is scared, repentant and traumatized. Janis tries to encourage her while they move like sleepwalkers along the hospital corridors. The few words they exchange in these hours will create a very close link between the two, which by chance develops and complicates, and changes their lives in a decisive way.

Parasite (15)

This superb blackly comic satirical thriller swept up awards including the Palme d’Or at Cannes and dominated the Oscars, the first Korean film to do so. A downtrodden family, the Kims, eke out a hand-to-mouth existence in a basement apartment. Struggling to earn enough for basic survival, their luck changes when the son, Ki-woo is employed to teach English to the daughter of the wealthy Park family in their suburban home. Slowly and cunningly, the Kims infiltrate every aspect of the Parks’ daily life. But when an interloper threatens their newfound comfort, a battle of class warfare breaks out, with things going first comically, then horribly, wrong. Full of energy, verve and a transgressive visual wit, PARASITE is incredibly watchable but also brims with rage at the inequalities of contemporary capitalism.

Paris, Texas (15)

Travis Henderson walks out of the desert after disappearing for four years. He is picked up by his brother Walt, who with his wife Anne have been looking after Travis’ son Hunter. A man ill at ease in everyday life, Travis feels the need to search for his ex, Jane, who left him some years before. In doing so, he attempts to bring his family back together, with unexpected results. PARIS, TEXAS is the summation of Wenders’ fascination with the American West - its landscape and the people who populate it. This Cannes winner is the pinnacle of the filmmaker’s career.
