Director Per Fly's The Woman Who Dreamt Of A Man is about sex. Got your attention? Passion realised as sexual obsession, to be exact, but like all films trying to be serious about the reasons people lust for each other it's got any number of potential pitfalls to overcome. Imagine a chart from laughable (most of Zalman King's work) up to phenomenal (Shinya Tsukamoto's masterpiece A Snake of June). The Woman... ultimately lodges in the upper half of that scale, though it stops just about everywhere on the way.
The title is almost the entire premise - Karen (Sonja Richter), a successful fashion photographer, meets Maciek (Marcin Dorocinski), a lecturer the spitting image of the man she's had darkly erotic dreams about for some time. She follows him, and when he challenges her, she explains the reason she's so fascinated by him. Drawn together by her story, »

We asked you to suggest the most mismatched lovers in cinema. Here are some of the best gruesome twosomes
@Hows, @filmcat, @Fantaxamus,

This week: Miranda Richardson
Take One: Collateral marriage damage
If you want nearly two hours of Jeremy Irons and Juliette Binoche miserably humping each other in dull, anonymous locations (all frightfully well lit of course) then Damage is good to go. Louis Malle's, and scriptwriter David Hare's, adaptation of Josephine Hart's novel, about a member of Parliament's affair with his son's girlfriend, is rather too inert and tasteful for its own good, and was only partially praised but largely ignored perhaps for those reasons. Many liked it, but many more had issues with it (or so I've read). I had a hard time remembering much about the film, save for the sullen, cheerless sex scenes mentioned above... and one other aspect: Miranda Richardson, playing Irons' character's dutiful wife. Gosh, I love me some Binoche, but good grief Richardson owned this one. »

The Dungeons & Dragons star has spoken. In short, we're all going to die
Silence, believers: a new deity has swept into the Lost in Showbiz pantheon and you will kneel before him. Taking his place next to the likes of Trudie Styler, goddess of flight and couriered truffles, comes a god of awesome logical prowess and mighty self-regard. In hieroglyphic form he is represented as a giant speculum, but in the demotic he is written "Jeremy Irons".
At present, you would probably react to that with the words, "Ah, the actor," – in which case, you are excruciatingly out of date. Know this: the correct incantatory response to hearing the name Jeremy Irons is "Ah, the newly minted green campaigner, whom we must herald as one of the age's most credible ecological thinkers, even though he owns loads of cars, six large houses, and one pink castle."
But we race ahead of ourselves. »

Tilda Swinton is a beautiful, coldly intelligent presence who was born to play the chilly White Witch, icy winter queen of Narnia in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. She is less obviously cast as Emma, the passionate Slavonic daughter of a Russian art dealer, brought to Italy as the wife of Tancredi Recchi, the uptight heir to a rich Milanese industrialist. I Am Love (aka Io sono l'amore) takes place in territory once explored by Bolognini, Visconti and Antonioni as the appeal of neorealism faded.
It begins well in wintry Milan where Emma is organising a birthday dinner for the family at her grand, 1930s style town house. The guest of honour is her elderly father-in-law and »
