‘A Gun in Each Hand’

Spain, 2012, Comedy/Drama, M, 1hr 37 min

A film which has nothing to do with Westerns, gangsters or gunslingers, ‘A Gun in Each Hand’ is about how men try to negotiate their way through a minefield of contemporary personal relationships, and continually fail. This subversive yet poignant film is sharp as new scalpel, tempered by wicked humour and occasional glimpses of empathy.


Australia, 1996, Drama, M, 1hr 43 min

Lewis is a twenty-something man who lands a job at a psychiatric hospital. But he gets more than he bargained for when he finds himself directing an adaptation of the Mozart opera ‘Cosi` Fan Tutti’ to be performed by the patients. But that’s only part of the story.
