Set in fascist Spain in 1944, a young girl discovers an escape into a fascinating, yet eerie world from her sadomasochistic step father. It may sound a bit heavy, but it’s not quite that heavy. It offers a lot in regards to a strong, solid storyline, and the gore is kept to a need to see basis. There are a couple of rank scenes, such as the toad, but this terrifyingly twisted fairy tale will keep you wanting more and more. It is in Spanish with English Subs, which also adds to that reading a fairy tale feel.

It’s a shame about this one actually, as a lot of the humour will be lost in the next few generations. However, the film epitomizes everything about being a middle aged to older Brit. The plot sees a group of pensioners with their own sub stories ending up in India, in what can only be described as a hovel with their lovable, yet at times ditzy host, Sonny Kapoor played by Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire). A great coming of age film for those that are already of age!

However, when the chance finally comes, a clerical error doesn’t give them a baby of 1.5 years, but instead a 15 year old thug. Funny in parts and delves delicately into the current political climate with a single goal, to show the blending of family life with all its ups and down.
