‘War heroes’ in new mission

Russian comedy ‘Composition for Victory Day’ will be screened at 6 pm on February 23 at the Russian Cultural Centre Cinema Hall, Colombo 7.

On the eve of the Victory Day celebrations, three old wartime friends reunite in Moscow. But they don’t get a chance to sit and recall their long-forgotten exploits. Chairman of the Veterans Foundation Kilovatov is accused of dealings with the criminal world and put behind the bars. Former dissident Morgulis, now residing abroad, and participant of protest rallies Dyakov organize the release of their friend from prison.

Confronted with the cruelty of their enemies who masterminded the arrest of their wartime buddy, the heroes involve mafia and security service in the release operation, and then decide to hijack a plane.

A journalist and a Scoop

A story of a young journalist who follows the scoop comes across during a magic show, directed by Woody Allen will be screened at 3.00 pm on Tuesday on February 15 at the Alliance Francaise de Colombo.

Starring Hugh Jackman, Scarlett Johansson, Ian McShane and director Allen himself, the film tells a story of a young journalist student, Sondra Pransky, in England.

At the funeral of the famous British journalist Joe Strombel, his colleagues and friends recall how obstinate he was while seeking for a scoop. Meanwhile the deceased Joe discloses the identity of the tarot card serial killer of London. He cheats the Reaper and appears to the American student of journalism Sondra Pransky, who is on the stage in the middle of a magic show of the magician Sidney Waterman in London, and tells her that the murderer is the aristocrat Peter Lyman. Sondra drags Sid in her investigation, seeking for evidences that Peter is the killer. However, she falls in love with him and questions if Joe Strombel is right in his scoop.
