When the man they knew as their father passes away, brothers Gabriel (David Dencik) and Elias (Mads Mikkelsen) are in for a shock: turns out both were put up for adoption by their real dad, Evelio Thanatos. Taboo, or not taboo? This outrageous, philosophical farce crosses Hamlet with The Island of Dr Moreau, and perhaps a smattering of Step Brothers… Call it what you will, it’s a wildly unorthodox comedy which couches some deep thinking about genetics, nature vs nurture, and bestial behaviour in slapstick pratfalls, dumb and dumber jokes, and good old fashioned sibling rivalry.

Another film of immense ambition and scope from leading Chinese filmmaker Jia Zhangke (A Touch of Sin; The World). Set over three decades, from the turn of the millennium to 2025, the film charts the ranging fortunes of two men and the woman they both love (Jia’s muse, Tao Zhao). This is a film about China’s embrace of capitalism, but told with an unforced poetic simplicity and rueful conviction.
