IN THE LAND OF BLOOD AND HONEY
(A VER ES MEZ FOLDJEN)
2011, FilmDistrict, 127 min.

Golden Globe® Foreign-Language Nominee from the United States.

In 1990s Sarajevo, Serbian policeman Danijel (Goran Kostic) and Muslim artist Ajla (Zana Marjanovic) fall in love despite their ethnic differences. Separated when the Balkan War erupts, the two meet again when Ajla becomes a prisoner at the camp Danijel oversees. As the conflict rages on, their relationship darkens as each is torn by other loyalties. Angelina Jolie's remarkable debut as a writer-director shines new light on a war whose wounds remain fresh, and whose causes remain murky to Western observers. In Bosnian with English subtitles.

THE SKIN I LIVE IN
(LA PIEL QUE HABITO)
2011, Sony Pictures Classics, 117 min.

Golden Globe® Foreign-Language Nominee from Spain.

The latest film from Pedro Almodovar reunites him with star Antonio Banderas, who plays Dr. Robert Ledgard, a plastic surgeon inspired to develop an artificial skin after his wife burned to death. He perfects his discovery on a female patient (Elena Anaya) held captive at his estate - but neither the woman nor her motivations are quite what they seem. Described by Almodovar as “a horror story without screams or frights,” THE SKIN I LIVE IN crawls with the byzantine plot twists, perversity and dark humor for which its writer-director is justly famous. In Spanish with English subtitles.

A SEPARATION
(JODAEIYE NADER AZ SIMIN)
2011, Sony Pictures Classics, 123 min. Dir. Asghar Farhadi.

Golden Globe® Foreign-Language Nominee from Iran.

In this wrenching family drama, the dissolution of an upper-middle class marriage reveals sexual, class and religious fault lines in contemporary Iran. When Simin (Leila Hatami) asks her husband Nader (Peyman Moaadi) to emigrate in search of better opportunities for their daughter, the man refuses, insisting that they stay with his invalid father. The couple separate and Nader hires Razieh to tend to his dad, but the arrival of this poor, devout and pregnant woman in the household brings serious complications. Winner of the Golden Bear for Best Film at the Berlin International Film Festival. In Persian with English subtitles.

THE KID WITH A BIKE
(LE GAMIN AU VELO)
2011, Sundance Selects, 87 min. Dirs. Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne.

Golden Globe® Foreign-Language Nominee from Belgium.

11-year old Cyril is the problem child of his state-run youth farm, insisting through tantrums and escape attempts that his neglectful father will return for him. During one of his episodes, Cyril encounters Samantha (Cecile De France), a hairdresser who feels an instant connection to the troubled youth, but she soon realizes that his issues run deep. Shot in the Dardenne brothers' trademark naturalistic style, THE KID WITH A BIKE practically glows with compassion, and was a well-deserved Grand Prix winner at the Cannes Film Festival. In French with English subtitles.

Directors Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne will appear in person for discussion following the film.

Golden Globe® Foreign-Language Nominee from China.

Based on the novel The 13 Women Of Nanjing, this epic war drama is set in 1937 during the second Sino-Japanese War. Oscar-winner Christian Bale plays John Haufman, an American missionary at a Catholic church in Nanjing, China. When the Japanese invade, a group of schoolgirls and local prostitutes seek sanctuary on the church grounds and Haufman becomes their protector. One of the most expensive productions ever mounted in China, THE FLOWERS OF WAR expertly balances terrifying battle sequences with intimate personal moments as the world closes in on these young women and their priest.
