KOKO AND THE GHOSTS
KOKO I DUHOVI
2011, 90 min, Croatia, Dir: Daniel Kusan

Shortly after Koko (Antonio Parac) and his family move to a new house in the city, eerily strange things start happening, and they begin to wonder if the house is inhabited by spirits - the previous owner, perhaps? When Koko’s sister goes missing, the young boy must embark on a quest to find her, and along the way discover the truth about the house and its bizarre supernatural quirks. A smash success upon its release in Croatia, Daniel Kusan’s KOKO AND THE GHOSTS is a wonderful adventure film for the whole family to enjoy. In Croatian with English subtitles.


THE LONG DAY CLOSES
1992, FilmDesk, 85 min, UK, Dir: Terence Davies

An elegant hymn to memory and the transporting power of the movies, Terence Davies’ tale of young Bud, a lonely, isolated preteen in postwar Liverpool, was listed by Time Out London as one of the best British films ever made, and is a moving biographical work. Though doted upon by his mother and sisters, Bud is miserable at his new school, where menacing bullies make his life hell, and he retreats to the local movie house, letting the silvery images of the cinema bring him some solace.


CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG
1968, Park Circus, 142 min, UK, Dir: Ken Hughes

Widowed father and eccentric inventor Caractacus Potts (Dick Van Dyke) transforms a broken-down old car into a flying machine - to the delight of his children (Heather Ripley, Adrian Hall) and the envy of the tantrum-prone Vulgarian kingdom (Gert Frobe, who played Goldfinger in that 007 film), who has outlawed children in his king. The Potts family, with candy factory heiress Truly Scrumptious (Sally Ann Howes), head to the kingdom to save the day!
