Films by Language


Day Watch

Dnevnoy dozor

Timur Bekmambetov

The second instalment of Timur Bekmambetov's hot-blooded, hyperkinetic vampire trilogy set in decaying post-communist Russia feels beefier, flashier and twice as hallucinogenic.

Freedom’s Fury

Colin Keith Gray

Fascinating historical doco weaves a riveting high-stakes narrative around the 1956 Olympic water polo semi-final between Hungary and the Soviet Union, which turned into a bloodbath.

The Italian


Andrei Kravchuk

Crafty six-year-old Vanya escapes his squalid Russian orphanage (and adoption by an eager Italian family) to search the streets of St Petersburg for the mother who abandoned him.

The Monastery

Mr. Vig and the Nun

Pernille Rose Grønkjær

Award-winning documentary about an eccentric elderly man who dreams of turning his castle into a monastery and the Russian Orthodox nun with ideas of her own about how it should be done.


György Pálfi

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.
