Bahman Ghobadi's (A Time for Drunken Horses) beautiful new film sees an ailing father lead his sons to Iraq to celebrate the fall of Saddam Hussein. Gritty, poetic and alive with rousing Kurdish music.

Hei yan quan
Ravishing, elegiac dream of a film from Tsai Ming-liang (Goodbye Dragon Inn, The Wayward Cloud), featuring parallel narratives and starring Lee Kang-sheng as a brutally beaten hobo and a man in a coma.
A lady doctor interviews an army doctor in the jungle. Playful, funny and touching study in time and transformation from leading Thai experimental filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul (Blissfully Yours, Tropical Malady).
György Pálfi (Hukkle) clocks in with a ghastly, audacious assault on the senses, involving a male genetic disorder that results in more body dysfunction than Cronenberg's entire oeuvre.
