Cinema 1 - HOW MUCH DO YOU LOVE ME? - R21 (Consumer advice: Sexual
Balding, elfin-eared Francois (Bernard Campan) enters a hooker-in- the-window joint in Paris' Pigalle district to meet the woman who has become his obsession - the voluptuous Daniela (Monica Bellucci). Her attention can be had for 150 Euros and an extravagant bottle of champagne. Francois doesn't balk at the cost. Instead, he reveals that he has just won a fortune in the lottery and offers Daniela 100,000 Euros a month to live with him until the money runs out. Daniela accepts and appears to cheerfully transform herself into the highly sexed domestic goddess of every man's dreams. But Francois has a debilitating heart condition, and Daniela's unnerving gangster boyfriend Charly (G¨¦rard Depardieu) is not ready to let her go without a fight. Directed by Bertrand Blier.
Cinema 2 - NACHO LIBRE - PG (Consumer advice: Nil)
Jack Black's latest on-screen escapade! Ignacio, growing up in a poor monastery in Mexico, has dreamed of being a professional wrestler since childhood. This obsession has led him to a thankless adult existence as monastery whipping-boy and chef, serving stale, day-old nacho chips to finicky orphans. In an effort to earn the respect of Sister Encarnacion (Ana De La Reguera) and escape the monastery into the greedy excess of pro wrestling, Ignacio enters a local amateur competition. Along the way, he picks up the notably scrawny yet tough street urchin Esqueleto (Hector Jimenez) as his tag-team partner. The duo hilariously loses badly and repeatedly to all manner of local wrestling oddities. It is only when Ignacio recognizes a higher goal than money and glory that he can truly compete with his professional idols, including the dreaded and evil champion Ramses. Directed by Jared Hess.
