Spies kidnap a child to ensure their secrets are not spilled by the father. Hitchcock liked this yarn so much he filmed it twice. But the original UK version has all the pep and originality of youth - and Peter Lorre in a pre-Hollywood role.

A well-groomed, greedy Polish mercenary aids a Mexican Revolutionary against the repressive government, while butting heads with a young female radical and an American rival. Quentin Tarantino rates this little-seen spaghetti western higher even than Once Upon a Time in the West. Sergio Corbucci (Django) directs, from a story by Franco Solinas (Battle of Algiers), and the glorious score is by the great Ennio Morricone. With Franco Nero and Jack Palance as “Curly”.

Philippe Falardeau (Monsieur Lazhar) returns with an energetic, laugh-out-loud political comedy that couldn’t be more timely. Steve Guibord (Patrick Huard, brilliant) is an independent Quebec MP travelling to his northern riding with a new Haitian intern. Soon after finding themselves caught in the crossfire of activists, miners, truckers, politicians and Aboriginal groups, it turns out that Guibord somehow holds the decisive vote in a national debate that will decide whether Canada will go to war in the Middle East!
