Enjoy another cinematic road trip with our Wild Strawberries September choice. Well-loved, versatile actor Ciarán Hinds stars as the world-weary Fiat 500 driver, traversing the French countryside with a framed photo of a woman perched on the seat beside him. Stopped at a café, he witnesses what looks like a body drop by a bunch of bald men, and decides to make himself scarce. Taking off across country and sea, his various quirky encounters are met with little conversation but pose much entertainment for the viewer. A mix of whimsy and melancholy, this charming film offers a richness of landscape, food, music and ideas.
