Films screening in NZIFF Autumn Events 2014 at MTG Century Theatre:

Funny Face
USA 1957
Director: Stanley Donen
Saturday 26 April, 2.15 pm

A charming confection of 50s vogues, this musical casts Audrey Hepburn as a brainy West Village bookshop manager and Fred Astaire as the fashion photographer whose camera (not to mention a trip to Paris and some fabulous Givenchy gowns) might just transform her into a runway star.
“The musical that dares to rhyme Sartre with Montmartre, Funny Face knocks most other musicals off the screen for its visual beauty, its witty panache, and it’s totally uncalculating charm.”— Time Out Film Guide

Lawrence of Arabia
UK/USA 1962
Director: David Lean
Festivals: Cannes (Classics), London 2012
Sunday 27 April, 2.15 pm

David Lean’s 1962 biopic remains the benchmark in epic action cinema: literate, dynamic and visually stupendous. Dashing performances by Peter O’Toole and Omar Sharif defined the two young actors for life.
“There are no intelligent epics like this today and, because of computer-generated effects, it's unlikely that there ever will be again.” — Philip French, The Observer

On The Waterfront
USA 1954
Director: Elia Kazan
Winner, Eight Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor
Saturday 19 April, 6.00 pm

Marlon Brando mesmerises in the indelible performance that revolutionised big-screen acting 60 years ago and is still heart-breaking today.
“As unspoiled in its key elements as the day it was made, On the Waterfront is indisputably one of the great American films.” — Kenneth Turan, LA Times
URL http://www.nziff.co.nz/autumn-events/film/on-the-waterfront

The Third Man
UK 1949
Director/Producer: Carol Reed
Saturday 12 April, 6.00 pm

Ranked first in the British Film Institute’s end-of-century survey of British cinema, The Third Man is film noir with rare pedigree: director Carol Reed and actor Orson Welles bring sinister flamboyance to novelist Graham Greene’s literate, perfectly structured thriller script.
“Of all the movies I have seen, this one most completely embodies the romance of going to the movies.” — Roger Ebert

The Wind Rises
Kaze tachinu, Japan 2013
Director: Miyazaki Hayao
In Japanese, French, German and Italian, with English subtitles
Nominated, Best Animated Feature, Academy Awards 2014
Sunday 13 April, 6.00 pm, Subtitled Version

The great Japanese animator Miyazaki Hayao has announced his retirement and if he sticks to his word, he will have gone out on a sublime note. The Wind Rises is a fictionalised portrait of the brilliant aeronautical engineer Horikoshi Jiro and the two loves of his life: his work, and his ailing wife, Nahoko.
“Marked by flights of incredible visual fancy… Miyazaki’s hauntingly beautiful historical epic draws a sober portrait of Japan between the two World Wars.” — Scott Foundas, Variety
