European Union (EU) Film Festival 2010

The European Union (EU) Film Festival starts on the 12th of June and ends on the 20th. The movies being screened have won several awards and as always are highly entertaining and a mile away from regular commercial cinema. I’ve picked some gems for you to indulge on the 12th and the 13th. All movies have English subtitles.  Here are some of the gems from the film festival:
