“It’s… the faces of three European film legends that makes this love triangle a compelling one to watch.” – Variety
“A touching, impeccably controlled drama.” – The New York Times
Three films that performed particularly well at the recent European Film Festival (EUFF), hosted by Cinema Nouveau, will be afforded a wider release over the next few months. The films are: 3 Hearts (France), which will be screened from Friday, 29 May, and Two Days, One Night (Belgium) and A Second Chance (Denmark), both of which will be released during July this year.
The romantic drama, 3 Hearts (French, with English sub-titles), is the new film from veteran director Benoit Jacquot (Farewell, My Queen), and stars film legend Catherine Deneuve as Madame Berger, alongside Charlotte Gainsbourg, Chiara Mastroianni and Benoit Poelvoorde. The film featured in the 2014 Venice International Film Festival.
A touching and tense drama about destiny, connections, and passion, 3 HEARTS presents a headily romantic look at a classic love triangle with a hint of Greek tragedy. One night in provincial France, Marc (Benoît Poelvoorde) meets Sylvie (Charlotte Gainsbourg) after missing his train back to Paris. Instantly and intensely drawn to one another, they wander through the streets until morning in rare, almost choreographed, harmony. They talk about everything except themselves.
A thwarted plan for a second meeting in Paris sends each in a separate direction – Sylvie reunites with her ex-boyfriend and leaves France; Marc falls in love with Sophie (Chiara Mastroianni) and marries her. When Marc and Sylvie do meet again, their unparalleled harmony still exists, but the hand that fate has dealt them decides otherwise.

Review: Movies @ Suncoast – Deadpool 2
If you are a lover of Durban and you hear of the word ‘Suncoast’, you would automatically be thinking: Casino and Entertainment World – well, if it was only ‘Casino’… then good job!
BUT it’s not all about the casino or the restaurants… it’s also about the movies, which brings us to the point of this post where we review Deadpool 2 at Suncoast’s Cinecentre.
FUN FACT: Cinecentre is part of the Avalon Group which is South Africa’s largest and oldest independent Cinema Exhibition and Entertainment Company – they have been a pioneer of importing Bollywood movies to South Africa for over 70 years.
DEADPOOL 2: REVIEW
DP 2’s elaborate anti-marketing campaign has been simply brilliant by bashing popular pop-culture while also making fun of itself. Ryan Reynolds, who plays both DP and Juggernaut, has once again pulled out all the stops to
deliver an entertaining and hysterically funny anti-hero flick that will appeal to all DP 1 fans.
Storyline: This blockbuster brings together X-Force, Bill Skarsgard, Terry Crews and Brad Pitt (who’s out of sight), a team of misfit hero’s on a mission to save a troubled mutant boy (Russell “Rusty” Collins) from a time traveling cyborg (Cable), played by Josh Brolin, who lugs around a beast of a gun and other advanced weaponry. But it doesn’t end as you may think.
The movies ability to break down the fourth wall without skipping a beat is what makes this film special. This brilliant idea that DP knows he is a fictional character living in a comic book universe could even be expanded upon in future installments, and hopefully it will be. All DP’s literal back breaking and head splitting weirdness mixed with a kind of super consciousness of his own reality should keep all die hard comic book movie fans coming back time and again.
Expect some rib-tickling one-liners, plenty of trash talking and loads of action. DP 2 scores and solid 8 out of 10, so book your tickets now at CINECENTRE!
Suncost Casino and Entertainment World
Centrally located at the northern end of Durban‘s Golden Mile, Suncoast is always a hub of activity. Not only a great spot to visit if you are a local but for tourists to our beautiful city as well. Currently under construction, we found that parking was a mission and running across the lot in the rain not very pleasant, but this is our only negative about our Suncoast experience. On a good note, a little birdie says that part of the new building will be undercover parking – which we think is fantastic!

REVIEW: Tomb Raider at Suncoast’s Cine Centre
There’s just something so electric about going to the movies at Suncoast Casino. With all the lights and vibrant shops & restaurants, you’re immediately transported to a magical place that can only be felt in reality!
We were recently invited to experience the new Tomb Raider movie at Suncoast Casino, and boy were we in for a treat!
Arriving at Suncoast, we made our way to the food court to grab a bite before the movie. Even though there were renovations taking place, it didn’t dampen the atmosphere as Suncoast was still jam-packed full of families and couples alike.
After our quick dinner for two, we headed towards the CincCentre to finally watch the movie I had been dying to watch, Tomb Raider! As a little girl, I grew up playing the Tomb Raider games, and of course, was beyond excited to watch the all new take on the movie franchise.
We queued for our popcorn & drinks which was a breeze.
I loved how Suncoast’s CineCentre give you extra packets of popcorn spice in case you needed it later on in the movie!
After making our way to our seats, we were ready and excited for the movie to begin. Our movie was in 3D and we came prepared, with pre-purchased 3D glasses from a previous movie. So if you’re buying a pair, be sure to keep it somewhere safe for the next time!
My take on the Tomb Raider movie?
I thought it was an incredible, fresh new take on the franchise and thoroughly enjoyed it!
