In 1960, Polsky (David Hayman) is a grumpy Holocaust survivor who lives alone in the remote countryside of Colombia and spends his days gardening and playing chess. Shortly after Nazi criminal Adolf Eichmann is captured by Mossad agents in Argentina, a mysterious old German man named Herzog (Udo Kier) moves in next door, immediately raising Polsky’s suspicions. He’s never liked Germans to begin with, but could his new neighbour be none other than the infamous Adolf Hitler in hiding? Against all better judgement, Polsky becomes determined to prove Herzog’s true identity and soon finds himself forced to get closer to “the enemy” in order to obtain irrefutable evidence.

Unfurling like a cross between Rear Window and Grumpy Old Men, this charming black comedy is a bittersweet heartwarmer about old people coming to terms with the misery of loss.

In the seemingly perfect utopia of Barbie Land, everyone is happy and – to borrow a line from another similarly self-aware film based on a popular line of toys – everything is awesome. The world is populated by an abundance of Barbies, each partnered with a Ken, of which there are also many. When one Barbie (Margot Robbie) begins to question her existence, she must leave Barbie Land and venture into the real world to discover her true purpose. But she’s not alone: along for the ride is her Ken (Ryan Gosling), who is determined to be more than a mere accessory.

In a year with new works from the likes of Martin Scorsese and Christopher Nolan, it’s hard to believe that Barbie would be among the most popular and anticipated films of 2023. Or perhaps some colourful, fun cinematic confection is exactly what the world needs right now.
