THE CLOCK
1945, Warner Bros., 90 min, USA, Dir: Vincente Minnelli

Director Vincente Minnelli’s take on the universal boy-meets-girl story. Off-duty soldier Robert Walker meets Judy Garland in New York. Some sightseeing and a day later, they fall in love. One of those rare films in which Judy didn’t sing at all, proving she was also capable of carrying a purely dramatic role.


LITTLE WOMEN (1933)
1933, Warner Bros., 115 min, USA, Dir: George Cukor

Katharine Hepburn stars in this Academy Award-winning adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel set in 1860s New England. As four sisters grow from girls to young adults during the hard times of the Civil War, the difficulties, tragedies and joys they experience tear at - but cannot break - the deep bonds of sisterhood and family in this timeless and heartwarming tale of growth and self-discovery.


RIDICULE
1996, Park Circus/Miramax, 102 min, France, Dir: Patrice Leconte

Moved by the difficulties faced by peasants living in the mosquito-ridden swamplands near Lyon, aristocratic engineer Marquis Grégoire Ponceludon de Malavoy (Charles Berling) devises a plan to drain the boggy land. But to gain an audience with King Louis XVI (Urbain Cancelier) in Versailles, he learns he must impress the royal court with his verbal wit. Drawn into a world of ever-shifting alliances where words are used as weapons, the marquis begins to lose sight of his noble intentions.
