Win one of 10 double inseason passes to The Lunchbox, starring Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur and Nawazddin Siddiqui, courtesy Madman. 'A charming film,' says Louise. In cinemas on July 10.

Movie review:
(Aust, 2013) Dir. Rolf de Heer. Stars David Gulpilil, Peter Djigirr, Luke Ford. "The haunting face of David Gulpilil is the overwhelming image that remains after watching Rolf de Heer's film about a man conflicted by living on the edge of two worlds. In many ways, it's an extraordinary film..." says Louise. (Releases July 17)

Movie review:
(India, 2013) Dir. Ritesh Batra. Stars Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur, Nawazddin Siddiqui. "Sometimes the wrong train will get you to the right station is a key expression in this rich relationship tapestry as it weaves its textures of loneliness through culinary pleasures. In this case, it's the wrong lunch that reaches the right recipient, and writer director Ritesh Batra in his debut feature, stirs his flavours gently, allowing the delicate aromas of human interaction to blossom unexpectedly in a heart-warming romance," says Louise.

[Coming in August. The 100 Year Old Man who Climbed out the Window and Disappeared, starring Robert Gustafsson, Iwar Wiklander, David Wiberg, Mia Skaringer. "There's more than a sprinkling of magic in this beautifully conceived and executed tale about a centenarian who likes blowing up things, a drink-loving station master, a perennial student, a feisty lady with an elephant, a crime boss, a bikie gang and a suitcase stuffed with stolen money," says Louise.]

Stars Kate Winslet, Josh Brolin. "A jail escapee, a depressed single mother and an impressionable pubescent boy reach the crossroads in this riveting drama set over the 1987 Labor Day long weekend, in which surprise is the key element," says Louise.

Competition winners:
To win DVDs courtesy Roadshow, we asked: With whom among family and friends would you least like to go on a road trip and why? Rob McCray (QLD): My wife - history has taught us that any future road trips will almost certainly end in divorce.

Every Australian film we have ever reviewed (film / DVD / video release), or have reported from the set, or featured in any way, is listed here, going back to films made even before the launch of Urban Cinefile, such as The Piano, Romper Stomper, Muriel's Wedding, Chopper (pic), The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert and dozens more. Over 500 films.

It's the most popular cruise ship destination in the Mediterranean, but by drink o'clock, Villefranche is all yours. And the locals are friendly, as Andrew L. Urban discovered staying at the aptly named Belle Vue apartment in the old and charming Medieval port within easy reach of all the glam spots on the Riviera.
