Synopsis

Teppo meets and falls in love with the beautiful blonde Sari. But this is to be no ordinary love affair. Teppo is a central figure in a neo-Nazi group and when he meets Sari’s son, he is in for a big surprise. Sari’s son is called Rhamadhani and he is black. Naturally for Teppo this is a huge dilema. On the one hand he has this passionate love affair with a wonderful woman, and a chance to fulfil dreams of parenting and family, and on the other a long held belief based on discrimination, ignorance and hatred. When Sari gets pregnant Teppo decides to do his best to make peace with Rhamadhani. With his brother and his old Nazi group threatening over his shoulder, he is forced to make a stand. It's a simple choice between love or hate.

LA Times

"'Heart of a Lion' is clever in the way it casts the idea of 'the Fatherland' against that of 'fatherhood', with Franzen excellent as the man in the middle."

Indiewire

"...a fine, energetic performance by Franzén, who oscillates in a heartbeat from slapstick comic to brute, and the young Yusufa Sidibeh, perfect as a boy whose experience has taught him to be far too suspicious for his age. At the heart of it all is Karukoski's conviction that it's our connections with others that make us what we are — for better or worse."

A slave to the orders of her mistress, Nie Yinniang must choose: sacrifice the man she loves or break forever with the sacred way of the righteous assassins.

The Clan

Official Selection TIFF and Venice International Film festival 2015, and the Official foreign language Oscar entry for Argentina.

From the producers of Wild Tales and directed by Pablo Trapero (White Elephant, Lion's Den, Carancho) five times selected in Cannes, comes THE CLAN, a suspense thriller based on the sordid controversial real-life case that shocked Argentina in the 80's.

Argentina in the early eighties. Within a typical family home in the traditional neighborhood of San Isidro, a sinister clan makes its living off kidnapping and murder.

Arquímedes, the patriarch, heads and plans the operations. Alejandro, his eldest son, is a star rugby player at CASI—a prestigious local club—and the Argentine mythical national team (Los Pumas). The son gives in to his father’s will and identifies possible candidates for kidnapping; his popularity shields him from suspicion.

To a greater or lesser extent, the members of the family are accomplices in this dreadful venture as they live off the benefits yielded by the large ransoms paid by the families of their victims.

Based on the true story of the Puccio family, this film full of suspense and intrigue takes place in the context of the final years of the Argentine military dictatorship and incipient return to democracy.
