The Family Way

Roy Boulting; GB, 1966, 120min

Based on Bill Naughton's warm-hearted play, The Family Way is a thought-provoking exploration of the emotional impact of the 1960s sexual revolution. Hayley Mills stars in her first adultfilm with Hywel Bennett as two sensitive youngsters who fail to consummate their marriage, following the vulgar ribaldry of their typically working class Lancashire wedding. Considered controversial in 1966, The Family Way remains a warm gentle comedy for manners, morals and manhood.

Girls Can't Swim

Western AF

Manuel Poirier; France, 1997, 134min

This amiable road movie follows two misfits ; Catalan shoe salesman Paco and vertically-challenged Russian-Italian Nino ; who meet under inauspicious circumstances as they travel through Brittany. Nothing extraordinary happens, but it's often funny and touching, mainly because the focus is on the credible, charming but never sentimentalised characters. A modest film, but immensely engaging.
