Film show: 'Leto', 'To the Ends of the World' and 'In Safe Hands'
Issued on: Modified:
"Leto" caused a stir at this year's Cannes Film Festival for its thoughtful rendering of 1980s Russia, its impressive use of music and the - potentially politically-motivated - absence of the film's director. Lisa Nesselson tells us why the historical film hits all the right Rock 'n' Roll notes. We also get a glimpse of the horrors of war in "To the Ends of the World"; this fictional account recreates the death throes of former Indochina in 1945.
And we find out just how complex the adoption process is in new French release "In Safe Hands", which zooms in on the chain of professionals involved, from social services to foster families.
