May 17-19: The Uninvited, Le Havre, The Yellow Sea & More!

05/15/12  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

Surf waves of action and violence in epic South Korean thriller THE YELLOW SEA! Na Hong-jin, the South Korean director of THE CHASER, returns with another nerve-wracking, stomach-churning action epic! THE YELLOW SEA tells of a debt-ridden Korean-Chinese taxi driver who goes to Seoul to bump off a gangster and also look for his absent wife, who moved there to find work. But a chain of unexpected events sends him running for his own life. At last year's Cannes Film Festival THE YELLOW SEA whipped the audience into a laughing, clapping frenzy -- thanks largely to its thrilling, virtuosic chase sequences! Variety calls the movie "pulse-pounding, mordantly funny" but adds that it is "serious and full-bodied enough to achieve a genuinely tragic dimension." Fasten your seatbelts on Friday or Saturday when we premiere it in a 35mm color & scope print! Here's the British trailer. Asghar Farhadi's FIREWORKS WEDNESDAY is 2006 Iranian marital drama FIREWORKS WEDNESDAY, the third feature by Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi (A SEPARATION), looks at modern, middle-class marriage in Iran against the backdrop of the Persian New Year. A betrothed young woman is drawn into a heated domestic dispute involving the couple she cleans for. Is the husband carrying on an affair with the divorced beauty-shop owner who lives next door? The truth comes out in a series of blistering exchanges. See this acclaimed 2006 movie on Thursday or Friday. Bohemian hides illegal immigrant from the cops in wry, funny, humane LE HAVRE For his first feature in five years, Finland's droll master of working-class comedy Aki Kaurismäki forsakes his familiar turf for the French port city of LE HAVRE. There a poor, aging, but happy bohemian working as a shoeshine man decides to hide a young African boy from the French authorities. (The child is an illegal immigrant hoping to get to London.) Working with a superb French-Finnish cast, Kaurismäki crafts a warm, funny, humanistic parable of contemporary Europe, as well as a loving tribute to classic French cinema (Melville, Renoir, Carné, Guédiguian). LE HAVRE is one of the most acclaimed movies of the past year. Don't miss it when it returns to the Cinematheque for one more screening on Saturday! 1944 ghost story THE UNINVITED is one of Martin Scorsese's all-time "scariest" Lewis Allen's spooky THE UNINVITED came in at #3 on Martin Scorsese's 2009 list of the "11 Scariest Horror Movies of All Time." This atmospheric 1944 chiller tells of a brother and sister (Ray Milland, Ruth Hussey) who buy an old Gothic mansion on the rocky Cornwall coast for an unusually low price. They soon discover why it was so cheap. This eerie classic, which has similarities with Hitchcock's REBECCA, has never been officially released on DVD in the U.S. Victor Young's lush music score produced the popular standard "Stella by Starlight." The Time Out Film Guide calls THE UNINVITED "an impressive supernatural thriller," commenting that it "tightens the screws of tension to genuinely frightening effect." You're invited to shudder along to it on Thursday or Friday. Just announced: potent Polish Oscar nominee IN DARKNESS to show on June 4 Agnieszka Holland's 2011 Polish drama IN DARKNESS was not only one of the five nominees for this year's Oscar for Best Foreign Language film. It is also one of the most gripping and spectacular movies of recent memory. But the film opened at the Cedar Lee during the 36th Cleveland International Film Festival, so many lovers of international cinema missed it. For this reason the Cinematheque is bringing IN DARKNESS back to Cleveland for one show on Monday, June 4, at 7:00 pm. Regular admission prices apply. The film has an impressive average score of 74 (out of 100) on metacritic.com.
