Saturday sees Spirit of the Beehive (2pm), the Spanish yarn of a pair of children obsessed with Frankenstein, Jacques Tati's ever popular vacational pratfalls M Hulot's Holiday (4.25pm) and Guillermo del Toro's Cronos (6.30pm). The Seven Samurai (2pm), Kurosawa's stylised warlord epic, To Live (6pm), another devastating slice of China from anti-establishment director Zhang Yimon, and Kryzsztof Kieslowski's Three Colours: Red (8.30pm) complete the weekend. Bank holiday allows the Americans a look-in: Jim Jarmusch's occasionally-brilliant string of cab rides Life on Earth (right) (6pm) and a special preview of David O Russell's Spanking the Monkey (8.40pm), hot tip for this year's Best Title Oscar.
Later: Ai no Borei's Empire of Passion, Pedro Almodovar's Matador, the amazing Bicycle Thieves, Nanni Moretti's Dear Diary and Jean Renoir's epic of sex and steam trains, La Bete Humaine.
