Proiezione di due film stranieri

On Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th May at 6.45 pm in the Griffith lecture theatre the following films will be screened:


El Orfanato (The Orphanage) 2007
Directed by Juan Antonio Bayona

Runtime time 1 hr. 45 min.
Genre: Drama, Horror, Mystery, Suspense

Laura purchases her beloved childhood orphanage with dreams of restoring and reopening the long abandoned facility as a place for disabled children. Once there, Laura discovers that the new environment awakens her son's imagination, but the ongoing fantasy games he plays with an invisible friend quickly turn into something more disturbing. Upon seeing her family increasingly threatened by the strange occurrences in the house, Laura looks to a group of parapsychologists for help in unravelling the mystery that has taken over the place


Le gout des autres (The Taste of Others) 2000

Runtime time 112 minutes
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance

Factory owner Castella is trapped in an unhappy marriage with a wife who spends more time cluttering up their home with chintz than showing genuine affection. Frustrated and unloved, he falls madly in love with an actress in a local theatre production - who just happens to be the English teacher he fired a few days earlier.


  1. Shown subtitled? Or without?

  2. Both films will be subtitled

  3. I'm a member of staff at Surrey and on NetNews, the Surrey newsletter, it says that le Gout des Autres will be shown on Monday, the 16th. Can you confirm, whether it's going to run on Tuesday or Monday?

  4. Gout des Autres will be shown on Tuesday, sorry for any confusion!
