Also showing: The Monk, Outside Bet, African Cats and Being Elmo
Sunday 29 April 2012
The Monk (101 mins, 15)
In a 16th-century Spanish monastery, a monk (Vincent Cassel) is tested by a masked mystery man. Dominik Moll's melodrama has some gorgeous, painterly imagery, but no story with this much magic, murder and general gothic juiciness should be quite so slow and ponderous.
Outside Bet (101 mins, 12A)
Back in the mid-1980s, some redundant Fleet Street printers buy a racehorse. Bob Hoskins and the rest of the cast must have been betting on a Full Monty-ish thoroughbred, but this hobbling Britcom deserves to be sent to the glue factory.
African Cats (89 mins, U)
Disney wildlife documentary boasting fabulous footage of Kenyan lions and cheetahs. But the twee editing and narration will make anyone over the age of six wish that David Attenborough had been in charge.
Being Elmo (76 mins, U)
Affectionate profile of a Sesame Street puppeteer. Worth a look if it's on BBC4.
