Life Inside

In this chapter, we see how great directors from France, Ukraine, the UK, the US, New Zealand and Algeria have illuminated inner life.

The Meaning of Life

How have great filmmakers from around the world, and across the decades, tried to get to the essence of life?


Movies can soar with love – but also be sunk by sentimentality. In this chapter, we see great Chinese, Sri Lankan, American, Hungarian, Iranian, French, British, Korean, Turkish and Hong Kong films which avoid the pitfalls of representing love.
