Shot on a shoestring, and barely released at cinemas last year, Black Pond nonetheless earnt its young writer-directors a Bafta nomination – and quite right, too.

Their unsettling, lyrical comedy, laced with tangy jokes and inventive surrealism, is an impressively distinctive debut. Chris Langham stars as a middle-class chap who invites a mysterious stranger into his comfortable home.
