The camerawork is lacklustre, the script is bland and contrived, the climax is lame, and the acting is just about ok. Review

The story of two Brazilian sisters separated by a twist of fate in a country infested with sexist attitudes is one of the finest Brazilian melodramas ever made. Review

While its premise is interesting and thought-provoking, Share isn’t entirely accomplished from a cinematographic perspective. The camerawork is rather uninspired and the performances lack vigour. Review

The enfant terrible of French is back, this time with a tortuous and torturous featurette about the menacing (male) filmmaker and the vulnerable actress. Review

Fugitive thriller set in a gloomy and despondent China excels in visual excellence and technical wizardry, yet its plot is tedious and banal. Review

It’s rather formulaic and conventional, an average spy drama doused in saccharine and filled with two half-baked romances. On the other hand, Red Joan contains a very urgent message that world peace must prevail above national allegiances, and that nationalism can be an arrogant and exclusionary notion. Review

This 59-minute documentary is informative enough for those (like myself) who are little familiar into the world of intersex. A good starting point. Review

It’s effective and riveting enough to keep you hooked until the end. The performances are convincing, too. The script, however, insistently delves into petit bourgeois afflictions, and some people might find it a little pedantic. I still enjoyed it, though. Review

3 Faces returns to the old tradition of Iranian cinema of the 1990s, in its narrative/formal wizardry. It’s meditative, lyrical and cryptic, a lot like The Taste of Cherry. Review

We The Animals is a gentle yet harrowing tale about a premature coming-of-age in a fractured home, mainly seen from the perspective of the child. It’s very honest and brutal, without slipping into cliches. Review
