Sunday 27 May 2012
Free Men (99 mins, 12A)
A black-marketeer (Tahar Rahim) discovers that Paris's Algerian Muslims are aiding the French Resistance. It's an amazing true story, but Free Men doesn't have the flair, or the budget, to do it justice.
Tales of the Night (84 mins, PG
Michel Ocelot (Kirikou and the Sorceress), a French animator who specialises in silhouettes, returns with a lovely portmanteau of six international fairy tales.
Personal Best (85 mins, 12A)
Documentary about three British sprinters who are training to compete in this summer's Olympics. For a film about running, it doesn't move very quickly.
Barbaric Genius (72 mins)
A profile of John Healy, a homeless alcoholic who became a literary sensation with his autobiography, The Grass Arena, only to vanish soon afterwards. It's touching, but leaves too many questions unanswered.
