Turning Tide

Synopsis

Turning Tide, a thrilling adventure picture set on the open seas, marks the directorial debut of famed cinematographer, Christophe Offenstein (Blood Ties). This big budget production stars François Cluzet (Intouchables and Tell No One) as Yann Kermadec, a taciturn Breton who, after his friend Franck (heart-throb Guillaume Canet) breaks a leg, steps in to skipper a high-tech yacht for the Vendée Globe, a strictly solo three month round-the-world yacht race.

Early misfortune sees Yann’s boat briefly laid up in the Canary Islands, but when he rejoins the race, he discovers he is carrying a teenage stowaway, Mano (Samy Seghir). Realising his long cherished dream of winning the Vendée Globe is imperiled by the presence of the young Mauritian, a furious Yann refuses to speak to the boy. However, slowly his hostility gives way to empathy and an understanding of Mano’s predicament.

While this stunning film makes a poignant comment on migration, it is the breathtaking action sequences that make it a cinematic experience not to be missed.

9th century China. 10-year old general's daughter Nie Yinniang is abducted by a nun who initiates her into the martial arts, transforming her into an exceptional assassin charged with eliminating cruel and corrupt local governors. Oneday, having failed in a task, she is sent back by her mistress to the land of her birth, with orders to kill the man to whom she was promised - a cousin who now leads the largest military region in North China. After 13 years of exile, the young woman must confront her parents, her memories and her long-repressed feelings. 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.

47 Metres Down

Fun-loving, twenty-something, sisters Kate and Lisa are ready for the holiday of a lifetime in Mexico. When the opportunity to go cage diving to view Great White sharks presents itself, thrill-seeking Kate jumps at the chance while Lisa takes some convincing. After some not so gentle persuading, Lisa finally agrees and the girls soon find themselves two hours off the coast of Huatulco and about to come face-to-face with nature's fiercest predator.

But what should have been the trip to end all trips soon becomes a living nightmare when the cage breaks free from the boat and plummets to the ocean floor. Kate and Lisa find themselves trapped deep underwater with less than an hour of oxygen left in their tanks. They must somehow work out how to get back to the safety of the boat above through 47 metres of shark-infested waters.
