Deeply considered ... I Wish. One of the year's best films has arrived quietly, unnoticed by the awards-season cheerleaders, but with its delicacy and complexity, it puts the Oscar-bait to shame. Hirokazu Koreeda's I Wish has taken two years to come to the UK. It has been more than worth the wait. Like his earlier movie Still Walking , this is a deeply considered Japanese family drama in the tradition of Ozu, with echoes of Edward Yang and Tsai Ming-liang – moving, sometimes heartbreakingly sad, often mysterious.

Breathless Godard's dazzling debut set up the stall for the French new wave. Breathless is a footloose, free-wheeling dash through the doomed romance between Jean Seberg's newspaper vendor and Jean-Paul Belmondo's hoodlum, hot-wired with jump-cuts and homages and shot on the run, without a permit, on the sunny streets of Paris. Bande à Part Described by the director as "Alice in Wonderland meets Franz Kafka", this picaresque about three wannabe crooks remains the lightest, most purely playful of Godard's early films. Two set-pieces stand out: the record-breaking dash through the Louvre, and this classic dance sequence, replete with hand-claps, foot stamps and wry off-camera commentary.
