Noah: a tale of biblical proportions but is it allright or all wet?

On today’s cinema show our film critic Lisa Nesselson tells Jade Barker that those debating the accuracy of Darren Aronofsky’s film "Noah" have missed the point. France 24 spoke with the director who told us he took artistic license with the biblical story.

Plus we take a look at the film "Heli" which definitely doesn’t glamorise the Mexican drug trade. Find out why the director decided to include explicit violence.

And find out how the movie "Computer Chess" recreated an early eighties feel - using vintage equipment.
