Swagger of Thieves

Rating: R16 Drug use & offensive language

Running time: 1 hr 46 mins

TWO SCREENINGS ONLY!
Friday 1st June 8pm & Friday 8th June 8pm!

Julian Boshier's all-access portrait of Wellington rock n roll institution Head Like a Hole's Nigel 'Booga' Beazley and Nigel Regan at home, on the road and in full roar.

"Swagger of Thieves director Julian Boshier has worked for half a decade on this film. Sometime during that marathon of bloody-minded perseverance, he has earned the trust and respect of Nigel ‘Booga’ Beazley and Nigel Regan, the ever-collapsing binary stars who are the guts of any HLAH line up. Boshier finds the two men staring down the age with belligerence, vulnerability, shamelessness and honesty. There is no legacy polishing here, and no one’s feelings are spared." (New Zealand International Film Festival)

Pierre Richard (The Fugitives), one of France’s supreme elder farceurs, stars in Stéphane Robelin's (All Together) modern take on the Cyrano de Bergerac story.

"Pierre is a retired widower who hasn’t left his house for two years. On the insistence of his daughter, he learns how to indulge in the delights of the Internet, thanks to some patience from a young man, Alex (Yaniss Lespert, What’s in a Name?), who is hired as Pierre’s computer tutor. On a dating site, Pierre meets the young and gorgeous ‘flora63’ (Fanny Valette, Little Jerusalem) who wants to meet him. But, given Pierre has used Alex’s head shot for his profile, he needs to convince Alex to take his place at the rendezvous."

Lost in Paris

Rating: M Offensive language & sexual references

Running time: 1 hr 23 mins

STARTS APRIL 12
Filmed in Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon's signature whimsical style, LOST IN PARIS stars the filmmakers as a small-town Canadian librarian and a strangely seductive, oddly egotistical vagabond.

When Fiona's (Gordon) orderly life is disrupted by a letter of distress from her 88-year-old Aunt Martha (delightfully portrayed by Academy Award (R)-nominee Emmanuelle Riva) who is living in Paris, Fiona hops on the first plane she can and arrives only to discover that Martha has disappeared. In an avalanche of spectacular disasters, she encounters Dom (Abel), the affable, but annoying tramp who just won't leave her alone. Replete with the amazing antics and intricately choreographed slapstick that has come to define Abel and Gordon's work, LOST IN PARIS is a wondrously fun and hectic tale of peculiar people finding love while lost in the City of Lights.
