Of all the things I imagined Heavy Trip would be, “sweet” was not one of the adjectives that would’ve immediately jumped to mind before watching this utterly charming shaggy dog story of a band chasing a dream they never really intended to catch. But here we are, in a post Heavy Trip world, and sweet is the best way to describe this hilarious film that is shockingly appropriate for the whole family […]. Turo is a twenty something metalhead living in rural Finland with a dream. He and his baddies in the band Impaled Rektum just want people to hear that they are the heaviest, most brutal band in the world, but they can’t seem to make it out of the basement.

The screenings on Sep 26th at 9:30 at Savoy and Sept 27th at 13:00 at Bio Rex are mostly for school groups and the ticket offices at Savoy and Bio Rex are not open at that time. [Kiki’s Delivery Service is] a lovable 1989 anime from Japanese master Hayao Miyazaki […]. Like his classic My Neighbour Totoro, this seamlessly works elements of fantasy and mild crises into an everyday children’s story, though this one serves more as a primer for womanhood. Kiki is a young witch – a profession that carries no sinister associations. Having reached the age of 13, tradition dictates that she must fly the nest on a sort of witchy gap year. Accompanied by her sardonic cat Jiji, and with a shaky grip of broomstick aviation, she winds up lodging with a kindly baker, for whom she begins an airborne delivery service. The plot is so loose

Mikrobi ja Gasoliini (2015)

The screening on Sep 26th at 9:30 is mostly for school groups and the ticket office is not open at Orion at that time. Microbe and Gasoline is an honest, exuberant ode to adolescence that crackles with creativity, heart and originality. Director Michel Gondry, whose whimsy often gets the better of him, shows great restraint in this story of childhood friends Daniel (Ange Dargent) and Theo (Theophile Baquet), known as Microbe and Gasoline, respectively. The two set off on a summertime adventure across France in a house on wheels they build themselves out of scrap parts. The set-up is pure Gondry, the filmmaker and music video whiz whose fantastical imagination bends reality into a daydream. […] Packed with wit and warmth, Microbe and Gasoline is a minor key showstopper. It’s proof you don’t always need a huge fireworks display, sometimes a bottle rocket and a few sparklers will do the
