Until June 2: 7 Days in Havana (2012)

Not your usual film structure, 7 Days In Havana tells the story of a week in the Cuban capital with a different director taking the reins on each day.

The film premiered in the Un Certain Regard category at the Cannes Film Festival in 2012, and features work from a number of regulars there including Gaspar Noe and Julio Medem. Making his directorial debut was actor Benicio Del Toro who enjoyed a warm reception while filming in Cuba after playing revolutionary hero Che Guevara in the two-part 2008 biopic Che.

Until June 3: Volcano (2011)

Shot entirely in Iceland, Volcano is a simple but poignant film about a couple adjusting to life after retirement. Described by the Telegraph as “a poignant observation of purpose and old-age”, it won awards across the festival circuit in 2011.

At Cannes, director Rúnar Rúnarsson even enjoyed a standing ovation after its screening thanks to what The Hollywood Reporter described as the film’s “tenderness that never compromises its truthfulness”.

Until June 4: Othello (1952)

Directed, produced, written by and starring Orson Welles, this brooding vision of Shakespeare’s Othello was filmed over three years. During this time, the shoot kept running out of money, which lead to logistical complications, such as costumes being impounded for non-payment.

One particular fight scene begins in Morocco but ends in Rome when shooting restarted several months later. It was worth it, though: Othello took the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival when it played there in 1952.

Until June 5: Milk (2008)

Released just as California was voting on whether to delegalise gay marriage, the story of Harvey Milk’s fight to become the first openly gay politician in the US is told through flashbacks and voiceovers.

Director Gus Van Sant wanted the film to be as authentic as possible so, as well as using footage from the time, he recreated Milk’s old camera shop in its original location.

The film won two Oscars, for its screenplay and for Sean Penn’s mesmerising performance in the lead role. Critic Sukhdev Sandhu, in his review for the Telegraph, praised the casting of Penn, and said Milk was a “wonderfully evocative film, radiating with warmth and humour.”

Until June 6: An Education (2009)

The novelist Nick Hornby wrote the screenplay for An Education, based on journalist Lynn Barber’s real-life tale of coming of age in a west London suburb in the 1960s.

An Education is the film that introduced the world to Carey Mulligan, earning her an Oscar nomination and widespread acclaim. Telegraph film critic Sukhdev Sandhu called it a “delightful, resonant film” and “a beguiling introduction to Mulligan, whom we will soon be seeing a lot more of”. And he was right.

Until June 7: Mesrine: Killer Instinct (2008)

The first of two films looking at French gangster Jacques Mesrine, Mesrine: Killer Instinct tells the tale of his rise to become Public Enemy No 1.

The first part in the two-film series, Killer Instinct was actually filmed second. The pair were filmed back-to-back over a gruelling nine-month shoot, starting at the end and working backwards so that star Vincent Cassell could lose the weight he gained to play the gangster in his heyday. “The movie peaks with enough brute urgency to stoke your hopes nicely for part two,” Telegraph critic Tim Robey wrote in his review. Which is lucky, because you can watch that too...

Called “France’s answer to Scarface”, the second installment of the epic gangster tale did not disappoint fans. “This rambunctious and violent gangster drama more than sustains its lengthy running time,” wrote Telegraph film critic Sukhdev Sandhu in his review.

Again starring Vincent Cassell, the film was also meant to star his father, Jean-Pierre Cassel. A legendary actor in his own right, Cassell Sr was to play Vincent’s on-screen father but he died shortly after filming began.
