Foreign Film: Zero Motivation
A zany, dark, & comedic portrait of everyday life for a unit of young, female Israeli soldiers. The Human Resources Office at a remote desert base serves as the setting for this cast of characters who bide their time pushing paper and battling in computer games, counting down the minutes until they can return to civilian life. Amidst their boredom and clashing personalities, issues of commitment - to friendship, love, and country - are handled with humor and sharp-edged wit (imdb.com)
Two Gentlemen of Verona
In what is considered to be Shakespeare's first play, Valentine and his best friend, Proteus, leave their home in Verona to seek out the broader world of Milan. Proteus leaves behind his love, Julia, who dresses as a page-boy in order to run after Proteus to Milan, only to discover that he has fallen in love with another woman, Silvia...the same woman who is the heart's desire of Valentine. The play mixes all of Shakespeare's great themes of friendship, loyalty, infidelity, the outrageous behavior of young people in love...and a few mapcap scenes.
Foreign Film: Wild Tales
Inequality, injustice and the demands of the world we live in cause stress and depression for many people. Some of them, however, explode. This is a movie about those people. Vulnerable in the face of a reality that shifts and suddenly turns unpredictable, the characters of Wild Tales cross the thin line that divides civilization and barbarism. A lover's betrayal, a return to the repressed past and the violence woven into everyday encounters drive the characters to madness as they cede to the undeniable pleasure of losing control.
