Two films not to miss this holiday season

Latest update : 2011-12-03

FRANCE 24 film critic Jon Frosch recommends two films hitting theatres this month: David Cronenberg’s psychosexual thriller "A Dangerous Method" and Aki Kaurismaki’s "Le Havre", a comedy about illegal immigration. Check out the trailers.

One film not to miss this holiday season is “A Dangerous Method”, David Cronenberg’s riveting, beautifully played intellectual thriller about the birth of psychoanalysis and the shifting relationships between Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender), Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen), and a young patient named Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley).

Also worth checking out is Finnish filmmaker Aki Kaurismaki’s latest movie, “Le Havre”, a wistful deadpan comedy about an aging Frenchman who helps a young African refugee hide from the police.

Here are the trailers:
