The international film festival in Delhi was supposed to highlight the talents of female directors from around the world. But the opening ceremony was cancelled, the festival broke up in disarray, and three guests – including the Oscar-winning New Zealand director Jane Campion – have now accused one of the organisers of sexual harassment.

Greenberg is a delicately observed, very well acted character study that is undermined by the utter obnoxiousness of its main character. It is very hard indeed to care about Roger Greenberg (Ben Stiller), the dysfunctional anti-hero of the film: a man on the cusp of middle-age, bitterly disappointed by the way his life has turned out.

Inokashira park is a tranquil patch of green located in Mitaka, a west-lying suburb in Tokyo about thirty minutes by train from the centre. But from first glance, you wouldn't think hidden behind the t'ai chi groups and bandstands lies one of the city's most cultured attractions: the Studio Ghibli museum. Primarily thanks to the animated films Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke by the Oscar-winning Hayao Miyazaki, Studio Ghibli has become known as "the Disney of the East". But any thoughts that this beguiling museum devoted to his work is like a Japanese Disneyland are swiftly banished as soon as you approach the museum's entrance.

Frank Capra once observed that: "The Oscar is the most valuable, but least expensive, item of world-wide public relations ever invented by any industry." A glance at this year's nominations suggests why the Academy Awards are still as alluring as ever. This year's ceremony will see fantasy extravaganzas such as Avatar and Inglourious Basterds go up against gritty, low-budget jewels like The Hurt Locker and Precious. There's also an animated film, Up, in the best film category. Hollywood's big awards will be a broad church.
