Clooney, Von Trier and Shia LaBoeuf's paper bag: Berlinale 2014

It may not have the glamour of Cannes, but the Berlin Film Festival certainly has the clout. We find out why Lars Von Trier decided to take a vow of silence at this year’s event, while Shia LaBoeuf walked the red carpet with a bag over his head. We also hear from George Clooney about his upcoming World War II caper "The Monuments Men".

Also on the show: tributes continue for Hollywood’s greatest child star, Shirley Temple, who has died aged 85.

Our film critic Lisa Nesselson gives us her take on animated adventure "Mr. Peabody And Sherman", and black-and-white Polish feature "Ida", both out in France this week.

We also find out why short is sweet for short-film creators at the festival dedicated to the form in the French town of Clermont Ferrand.

Finally, we discover a brand new "Beauty and the Beast": Christophe Gans’ "La Belle et la Bête" has Léa Seydoux, Vincent Cassel, and sumptuous costumes by Christian Lacroix, for a truly French touch.
