Casanova - Comedy by Lasse Holstrom. Heath Ledger stars as the famous playboy, who narrowly escapes the wrath of the church when he agrees to mend his promiscuous ways by taking a wife. He eventually sets his sites on Francesca (Sienna Miller), a beautiful and talented writer who shows no interest in him.

Walk the Line- Drama by James Mangold. Joaquin Phoenix excels as the Man in Black, Johnny Cash, in this solid - if not ultimately revelatory - biopic. But it's really Reese Witherspoon as June Carter, Cash's great love and saviour, who steals the show. And, of course, the music is fantastic.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang- Comedy by Shane Black. While fleeing police, actor-turned-criminal Harry Lockhart (Robert Downey, Jr) unexpectedly comes upon an audition for a movie about a private detective. After landing the part, Harry shadows real-life detective Gay Perry (Val Kilmer), who becomes his crime-fighting mentor and partner after the movie falls through. While adjusting to his new job, Harry comes across Harmony (Michelle Monaghan), a woman he loved many years ago.

Broken Flowers(Zlomené kvety) - Drama by Jim Jarmusch. What should have been the brilliant meeting of two great minds - Jarmusch and Bill Murray - is instead a sporadically funny, occasionally touching, but mostly disappointing and tedious story about an aging ladies' man who hits the road to find former lovers, in search of his potential long-lost son.

 

 


Oliver Twist- Drama by Roman Polanski. Barney Clark stars as the title character in Polanski's version of the frequently filmed Charles Dickens classic about an orphan who falls in with a group of young pickpockets on the streets of London. Ben Kingsley also stars.

Don't Come Knocking(Nechoď klopať na dvere) - Drama by Wim Wenders. Over 20 years since their brilliant collaboration Paris, Texas, Wenders reunites with playwright / screenwriter / actor Sam Shepard, who wrote and stars in this film about an aging movie star (Shepard) who tries to atone for his hard-living ways.

 

 

 


Fun with Dick and Jane(Finty Dicka a Jane) - Comedy by Dean Parisot. - When it focuses on satirizing the US corporate and political culture, this Enron-inspired romantic crime caper is biting and clever, but when Dick (Jim Carrey) and Jane (Tea Leoni) start robbing stores and banks, it goes downhill pretty quickly.


King Kong- Adventure by Peter Jackson. Naomi Watts, Jack Black and director Peter Jackson make this remake about a giant gorilla and the woman he loves exactly what it needed to be: a humorous, compelling and touching spectacle.


Land of Plenty(Krajina Hojnosti) - Drama by Wim Wenders. The great German director Wim Wenders (Wings of Desire) once again focuses on America in this post-September 11 drama, which stars Michelle Williams.
