Sweet Bean
Naomi Kawase - Japan, France, Germany - 113 mins

The title of Naomi Kawase's film—perhaps her best to date —refers to a red-bean paste used to fill the dorayaki pancakes served up by chef Sentaro at a tiny diner he manages with little enthusiasm. His mood is transformed after strangely insistent septuagenarian Tokue (Kirin Kiki) persuades him to take her on as his assistant. ... more

Celso García - Mexico - 95 mins

The Hollywood Reporter dubbed this film an "uncommonly effective road movie." The task seems straightforward enough: Paint a yellow dividing line on a 200-kilometer stretch of highway between two towns in a remote desert (or perhaps desertified) area of northern Mexico, and do it in 15 days.
