down under to retrieve him. Years later, a neglected and dejected Bogle returns with a man claiming to be the heir. Clinging to their family jewels, the Tichbornes refute the claim and a court case of scandalous proportions ensues. Edinburgh: Lumiere. Stirling: MacRobert.
Time Regained (18) (Raul Ruiz, France/ Italy, 1999) Marcello Mauarella, Catherine Deneuve, Emmanuelle Béart. 162 mins. Marcel (Mazzarella) lies in bed thinking about his life, and reflects back less on his own actions than of those in the wealthy late l9th/early 20th century salon culture in which he moved. Ruiz’s adaptation of Proust's ﬁnal volume of Remembrance Of Things Past captures brilliantly the tenuousness and subjectivity of memory — aided and abetted by his trademark lateral tracking shots, technical correlatives to Proust’s thinking. See preview and review. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.
The Trench (15) (William Boyd, UK, 1999) Paul Nicholls, Daniel Craig, Danny Dyer. 98 mins. Naivete might be the word. But it cannot capture the innocent ignorance that engulfed the British teenagers who flocked to enlist in World War One. Boyd traces the demolition of this innocence amongst a group of front-line volunteers preparing for the infamous Battle of the Somme. As the bloody outcome is well established, plot is secondary, and the narrative focuses on character deveIOpment. The stylisation seems at odds with the bulk of the film. Nevertheless, worthy stuff.

The Truman Show (PG) (Peter Weir, US, 1998) Jim Carrey, Laura Linney, Ed Harris. 103 mins. Truman Burbank leads a life of sublime banality in the picture perfect island community of Seahaven, but is the unwitting star of the world’s longest-running documentary soap opera. The Truman Show (the movie) is flawlessly put together, with script and direction perfectly judged. Carrey, still a schmuck, but less ingratiating than usual, surprisingly gives the movie its heart. Edinburgh: Film Guild at the Filmhouse. Trystero Short Film Night Late night programme of short ﬁlms, wrapped around a break in the Cameo bar and selected by Edinburgh-based arts events organisers Trystero Productions. Highlights include: Robert Tate ’s New York-set Ketosis, Anthony Alleyne’s award-winning The Booth and Edinburgh College of Art graduate Adrian J. McDowell's hilarious Who’s My Favourite Girl. Edinburgh: Cameo.
Very Bad Things (18) (Peter Berg, US, 1998) Cameron Diaz, Jon Favreau, Christian Slater. 100 mins. Diaz is marrying Favreau and nothing, but nothing, is going to upset her plans for the perfect wedding. That is, until Favreau and pals hit Las Vegas for his stag night and inevitable debauchery is cut short when they accidentally kill a hooker. An outrageously grim and gruesome black comedy about the extremes of nuptial hysteria and male bonding. Edinburgh: Filmhouse.
Welcome To The Dollhouse (15) (Todd Solondz, US, 1995) Heather Matarazzo, Brendan Sexton Jr, Matthew Faber. 87 mins. Heather Matarazzo delivers an unforgettable performance as Dawn Wiener - a lonely, softly-spoken child subjected to constant abuse at school and virtually ignored at home. This Sundance Grand Jury Prizewinner presents the world of high school as far closer to the bone than the usual sanitised version, probing an inner world of frustration and anger with scathing humour and understanding. Edinburgh: Cameo.
West Side Story (PG) (Robert Wise & Jerome Robbins, US, 1961) Natalie Wood, Richard Beymer, Russ Tamblyn, Rita Moreno. 155 mins. Romeo And Juliet revisited against a background of New York gangs. Great songs of course, but the playing of the stylised dancing against a realistic background contrives to make it all look rather camp these days. Edinburgh: Lumiere.
Cop killer: The Bone Collector
Wings Of Desire (15) (Wim Wenders, w, 1987) Bruno Ganz, Otto Sander, Solveig Dommartin, Peter Falk. 127 mins. Restless angel Ganz on duty over Berlin takes a tip from American movie star and former angel Falk on the possibilities of crossing over, and follows his mentor's path to consummate his relationship with beautiful
circus acrobat Dommartin. Gorgeous black- and-white photography and a sensitive feel for the people and places of Berlin grace this thematically rich and uncharacteristically optimistic slice of Wenders enchantment. Highly recommended. Falkirk: FTH Cinema.
The Winslow Boy (U) (David Mamet, US, 1999) Nigel Hawthome, Rebecca Pidgeon, Jeremy Northam. 110 mins. It has surprised many that David Mamet should adapt Terence Rattigan's very British period drama, based on an event which caught the public’s imagination in 1912. The boy in question is expelled from naval academy for allegedly stealing a postal order, much to the consternation of his upper middle class family. At father's insistence, the Winslow’s spare no expense to clear the boy’s name. The cast are roundly superb, evincing as much control as their director. Edinburgh: Lumiere.
Wonderland (15) (Michael Winterbottom, UK, 1999) Gina McKee, Shirley Henderson, Molly Parker. 108 mins. At once both extraordinarily beautiful and desperately sad, this portrait of life in contemporary London is seen through the eyes of three sisters and their dysfunctional family. Wonderland is unrelentingly grim for the most part, yet the performances are so good that you can’t help but be moved to tears. And Winterbottom utilises every trick in the Great Filmmaker’s Manuel to create a visual treat worthy of its title. See preview and review. Edinburgh: Cameo.
The World Is Not Enough (12) (Michael Apted, US/UK, 1999) Pierce Brosnan, Robert Carlyle, Denise Richards. 128 mins. A nuclear scientist with shapely curves, an international terrorist impervious to pain, a slick British spy who delivers his innuendo with a touch of apology in his voice. The nineteenth Bond movie is distinguished by a number of plot twists not usually squeezed in between spectacular but uninspired action set pieces, which increases involvement with the peripheral characters.
