Man tänker sitt (2009)

An enigmatic film with some beautiful cinematography. I think this movie has hidden depths and will repay multiple viewings.

Matti und Sami und die drei größten Fehler des Universums (2018)

Utterly gorgeous, gentle comedy, with fine performances all round, that everyone should watch! Highly recommended.

Medea (1969)

Extraordinary, beautiful and intense. Remind me never to cross a Colchian sorceress.

Mercury Rising (1998)

Not a bad movie as such, but just too trite and formulaic to be deeply meaningful. Not really my cup of char. Miko Hughes' performance as the autistic kid, though, was stunning.

Mia aioniotita kai mia mera (1998)

A ponderous film in which the protagonist, Alexander, a man who knows he is dying and has very little time left, tries to find some meaning in the recollected fragments of his life, whilst spending his last day out of hospital with a young boy, an Albanian immigrant who has been driven from his own home, and whom Alexander rescues first from the police and then from what seems to be a criminal gang which sells street children to desparate childless couples. When the young boy's friend Selim is found dead, the street kids have a sort of funeral where they burn his belongings, in a rather haunting and lovely scene. I feel this movie has hidden depths, and will repay more than one viewing.

Milan (2007)

Essential viewing. Although the director has insisted that the film does not 'take sides', it is nevertheless a good counterbalance to the relentless propaganda that was churned out by NATO and the subservient western media at the time.

Mino (1986)

Rather sombre towards the end - but then it is about WWI! A gorgeous production.

Monstagram (2017)

"...And also, a duck on his back that can also kill you." Come on, that's got to be worth something.

Mr. Bean's Holiday (2007)

A really excellent comedy, very amusing throughout. Despite having hardly any lines, 10-year-old Max Baldry reveals himself as an exceptionally good actor in this, his first 'big break', and was rightly nominated for a 'Best Performance' at the Young Artists Awards. The scene where Mr. Bean (Rowan Atkinson) mimes to an aria by Pucini in front of a crowd is marvellous! Mr. Bean seems to interpret this in terms of Romeo and Juliet, with Stepan (Baldry) playing the part of the dead Romeo (in fact, the scene in the actual aria has nothing to do with this! Mr. Bean's holding Stepan in his arms also has overtones of the Christian pietà...). The final scene on the beach is a splendid finale to this very enjoyable movie.

The Mummy Returns (2001)

Thin action/CGI pabulum, though redeemed by some nice one-liners, and by Freddie Boath's performance as the cute, clever, cheeky boy. Without Freddie's contribution, though, it would scarcely be very satisfying for anyone with more than two brain cells to rub together.

My Family and Other Animals (2005)

Perhaps not quite as good as the 1987 TV miniseries, but a superb film realisation nonetheless. One pleasing thing about this movie is that Gerald (Eugene Simon) goes practically feral by the end - wearing just a pair of shorts and covered in a layer of dirt.

My Uncle Silas (2000-2003)

A pleasant enough series, lightweight and fluffy; though, in all honesty, Joe Prospero as Edward doesn't really have a lot to do except ask questions of Albert Finney which display his (Edward's) naivete, for humorous effect.
