15 classification Borg vs. McEnroe


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Biopic / Sport
Director: Janus Metz
Running time: 100 mins

Björn Borg (Sverrir Gudnason), the level-headed gentleman, and challenger John McEnroe (Shia LaBeouf), the fiery 'superbrat' forged a rivalry which culminated in the legendary Wimbledon final in 1980. We follow these two highly competitive and devoted tennis stars in their preparations for the match, and spend some time in their pasts, through flashbacks. This is a watchable and solid drama, which draws interesting parallels between the players' psychology and illustrates their mutual respect.

15 classification In The Last Days Of The City


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Drama
Director: Tamer El Said
Running time: 118 mins

This melancholic love-hate poem to the Egyptian capital was initially shot in 2009, and documents the city's last tumultuous decade. Blurring the boundaries between reality and fiction, the film blends set scenes and documentary-style footage of real people playing themselves. Khalid, a 35 year old filmmaker finds beauty and sadness in the city that he loves, as he faces loss and struggle in his own life. The Egyptian authorities have refused a permit to show the film inside the country, meaning that, tragically, the country's own inhabitants will currently not be able to enjoy it.

18 classification On Body And Soul


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Drama
Director: Ildikó Enyedi
Running time: 116 mins

This achingly beautiful Hungarian love story follows Endre (Géza Morcsányi), the middle-aged manager of a Hungarian slaughterhouse, and Mária (Alexandra Borbély), his much younger employee. The film opens with the tender, lyrical image of a deer and buck wandering across a snow-encrusted landscape. It is eventually revealed that these are the shared nocturnal visions of the two protagonists. In the wrong hands, this premise could easily turn absurd, but writer-director Ildikó Enyedi keeps the film grounded, touching, understated, and relatable.
