Widely praised following its world premiere as a Special Presentation at the
Toronto International Film Festival, director Rithy Panh's (RICE PEOPLE)
celebrated period epic set in the rich landscape of French colonial
Indochine is a highly successful adaptation of Marguerite Duras' acclaimed
and semi-autobiographical novel "Un Barrage Contre le Pacifique", featuring
a leading performance by BAFTA Award Winner and recipient of the European
Film Academy's 2009 Achievement in World Cinema, Isabelle Huppert.

Deceived into investing all of her savings in worthless, regularly flooded
farmland, incapable of supporting crops and perilously close to the ocean,
THE SEA WALL tells the compelling story of one mother's fight to protect her
family - Joseph (Gaspard Ulliel, HANNIBAL RISING, A VERY LONG ENGAGEMENT)
and Suzanne (Astrid Berges-Frisbey) from destitution at the hands of a
corrupt administration.

Battling both the colonial bureaucrats and nature itself, she enlists the
help of the local villagers, putting into place an elaborate scheme:
building a dam against the sea to secure the future of both her family and
the local community.

    Miele narra la storia di Irene, una ragazza di trent'anni che ha deciso di aiutare le persone che soffrono: malati terminali che vogliono abbreviare l'agonia, persone le cui sofferenze intaccano la dignità di essere umano. Un giorno a richiedere il suo servizio è un settantenne in buona salute, che ritiene semplicemente di aver vissuto abbastanza. L'incontro metterà in discussione le convinzioni di Irene e la coinvolgerà in un dialogo serrato lungo il quale la relazione tra i due sembrerà infittirsi di sottintesi e ambiguità affettive.

    Er ist exzentrisch, genial, scharfzüngig – doch nicht unbesiegbar. Das muss Tony Stark alias Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) erkennen, als er sich einem Gegner gegenübersieht, der keine Grenzen kennt. Nachdem dieser ihm all das, was Stark am Herzen liegt, genommen hat, begibt sich der geschlagene Held auf die leidvolle Suche den zu finden, der dafür verantwortlich ist – eine Reise, die seinen Mut und seine Standhaftigkeit auf eine harte Probe stellen wird. Mit dem Rücken zur Wand kann sich Stark auf seiner Mission nur noch auf seine eigenen Instrumente, seinen Scharfsinn und seine Instinkte verlassen um jene zu schützen, die ihm am wichtigsten sind. Während er sich langsam wieder zu alter Form zurückkämpft, findet Stark die Antwort auf die Frage, die ihn insgeheim schon lange verfolgt: Macht der Mann den Anzug oder macht der Anzug den Mann?
