Literature teacher Laurence (Melvil Poupaud) and his partner Fred (Suzanne Clément) have shared a long and stable marriage, but Laurence has been harbouring a secret. One day he announces to Fred that he feels he has been living a lie for years, and that he can no longer go on living as a man when he knows that he is meant to be a woman.

I Killed My MotherI KILLED MY MOTHER (15) 2009 CANADA  CANADA DOLAN,   IN FRENCH      £15.99
Hubert Minel doesn’t love his mother. The seventeen-year-old regards her with haughty contempt, and sees only her dated sweaters, kitsch decorations and the breadcrumbs that get stuck on the corner of her lips when she munches. In addition to these irritating surface details, there are also the cherished family mechanisms of manipulation and guilt. Confused by a love/hate relationship which obsesses him more and more each day, and desperate to escape the suffocating atmosphere of his mother’s working-class, suburban home, Hubert drifts through the mysteries of an adolescence both marginal and typical: artistic discoveries, illicit experiences, the opening-up to friendship, sex, and ostracism.

The directing debut of young French-Canadian actor Xavier Dolan is a cathartic, fiercely compelling evocation of turbulent late adolescence. Visually stunning, with exquisite performances from Dolan himself – as the volatile, verbally savage Hubert – and a highly acclaimed cast including Anne Dorval and Suzanne Clément, I Killed My Mother was the winner of 22 international film awards in 2009, including three categories at Cannes.

Some BFI releases for April 2017

German Concentration Camps Factual SurveyGERMAN CONCENTRATION CAMPS FACTUAL SURVEY DUAL DVD + BLU-RAY RELEASE £29.99
Intended to be shown to the German people in 1946 damn the Nazi regime and shame the German people in to acceptance of Allied occupation, a complete rough-cut of this disturbing documentary revealing the horrors of the Nazi concentration camps was viewed at the Ministry of Information in London and in the end never shown.

In September 1945 Sidney Bernstein led a small team –which included Stewart McAllister, Richard Crossman and Alfred Hitchcock–to complete the film from hours of footage and to create a feature-length visual report on the Nazi atrocities. However the project was left unfinished and shelved.

Even in its incomplete form, the film was immensely powerful, generating an awed hush among audiences. But now, complete to six reels, this faithfully restored and definitive version produced by the Imperial War Museums and with a newly recorded narration by actor Jaspar Britton, has been rightfully compared with Alain Resnais’ Night and Fog (1955).
