Imagine John Lennon’s childhood… Liverpool 1955: a smart and troubled fifteen year-old is hungry for experience. In a family full of secrets, two incredible women clash over John. Mimi, the buttoned-up Aunt who raised him, and Julia, the prodigal mother. Yearning for a normal family, John escapes into the new and exciting world of rock n’ roll where his fledgling genius finds a kindred spirit in the teenage Paul McCartney.
Just as John begins his new life, tragedy strikes. But a resilient young man finds his voice – and an icon explodes into the world.

Director : Kawase Naomi
Cast : Kiki Kirin, Nagase Masatoshi, Uchida Kyara
Duration : 113 mins
Language : Japanese (Chinese and English Subtitles)
Frequent Cannes visitor Kawase Naomi opened this year’s Un Certain Regard sidebar with this gentle foodie drama, one of the arthouse filmmaker’s most accessible films yet. Sentaro (Nagase Masatoshi) lives a mundane life making mediocre dorayaki – cake with sweet red bean paste – in a small suburban bakery. One day, a kind old woman named Tokue (Kiki Kirin) applies as the store assistant, bringing with her a delicious homemade recipe for red bean paste.
The two lonely souls eventually find a new purpose in life as their unlikely partnership leads to newfound success. Showing in detail the methodical process that goes into making the perfect dorayaki, AN is a sweet, humanistic drama that will surely make anyone with a sweet tooth salivate.

Director : Seewai Hui
Cast : Yuen Tai-Yung, Kenny Bee, David Ki, Ryan Hui, Michael Hui
Duration : 58 mins
Language : Cantonese (Chinese and English Subtitles)
Mr Yuen Tai-Yung (b. 1941) is a Chinese artist known for his creation of over 200 iconic Hong Kong movie posters – which include many films from the Bruce Lee, Hui Brothers, Stephen Chow, Jacky Chan and Sammo Hung’s kung fu and comedy series.
This documentary chronicles the director’s quest to find the reclusive master and subsequent encounters with the man within a period of 12 months. It captures the life and art of the self-taught genius who single-handedly depicted the look and feel of what can be describe as the Golden Era of Hong Kong Cinema from 1975 to 1992.
Western audiences might recognize some familiar faces from the prolific painter’s recent works – undeniably breathtaking – such as the portraits of Marlon Brando, Michael Jackson, James Dean, John Lennon, Audrey Hepburn and Anne Hathaway.
