Casablanca – Review

As time goes by, the appeal of Casablanca shows no sign of diminishing. Originally intended as a WWII propaganda movie, it remains a marvellous blend of bittersweet romance, wisecracking comedy and wartime intrigue. Wonderfully acted by its cast, it’s the story of a laconic nightclub-owner Rick (Humphrey Bogart), whose life in Casablanca is shaken up… Read more »

Headhunters – Monday June 10th 7:45pm (Doors 7pm)

I can’t remember the last time a movie surprised me as much as Headhunters: not just its story twists and turns, which are considerable, but its continual stripping of character veneer and overall audaciousness left me breathless. I haven’t read any of the growingly-popular novels by Norwegian author Jo Nesbo (whose reputation has grown in… Read more »

Untouchable – Monday 6th May 7:45pm

If you are sceptical about French films, don’t be for this one … it is a must see film, my personal favourite of 2012.  I know that I am a little bit late to the party celebrating the film “Intouchable*” but better late than never.. It has heart, humour, hope and in the end happiness…. Read more »

Elling – Monday 10th February 07:45

After The Help, which was shown on 14 January, The Big Cheese Film Club has found another corker – nominated for an Oscar in 2001, in the Best Foreign film category, this Norwegian film portrays two middle-aged, cognitively challenged men who team up to live as roommates in urban Oslo. Somehow, their odd, symbiotic relationship… Read more »
