Workers Unite!

A powerhouse debut with an ambitious subject—the throes of European capitalism—dramatized with practical and engrossing storytelling. We see a labour dispute in all its detail of passion and conflict—drama that attracts drama, and even a song! A tremendous evocation of the struggle to work and live.

Weekly
Film thumbnail
Brought under scrutiny after Ilych's Gate (labelled "morally sick" by Khrushchev!), the great Soviet filmmaker Marlen Khutsiyev drastically re-edited this generational portrait into I am Twenty. Reminiscent of the French New Wave, once more capturing the angst & anxiety of this "Khrushchev Thaw."

Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau's relationship drama

Told in real-time, in the aftermath of an orgy and between the tender early-morning hours of 04:27 and 05:59, this relationship drama explores the fluid, fragile bond formed by our titular Theo and Hugo. An ambitious queering of the classical Orpheus and Eurydice myth.
