A War Within
A WAR WITHIN
Denmark, 103 minutes
director: Kasper Torsting

Esben flees the trenches of WW I, so he can return to his family. But everything at home has changed. A charming German Officer is trying to win his wife Kirstine’s heart and replace Esben as father to their child. Esben sees how his family is slowly slipping away, so he decides to fight for it. But just how far can you go in the name of love?

What we think: While Hollywood stopped producing the expensive unprofitable historical dramas, in Europe filmmakers still look back and give us a clear but complex reality from the past, like in this case.

Finding Alice
FINDING ALICE 
USA, 78 minutes
Director: Pablo Fernandez

Erin lives on the streets. Desperate for money, she cheats her way into a job at a nursing home, but ends up stealing cash and going on the run, kidnapping one of the patients in the process. But Erin's frantic escape gradually turns into an inspirational and revealing road trip, due to the unconventional relationship which develops between her and her kidnap victim - - a seventy-year-old man.

What we think: Two strangers - a feisty young woman and a confused older man suffering from dementia - go on a wild road trip full of twists and turns and shocking surprises that cannot be ignored.
