No Bears (12A)

Dir: Jafar Panahi 2022 | 107 mins

The outstanding new film from acclaimed Iranian director Jafar Panahi.

He plays himself – a filmmaker trying to direct a cast and crew in Turkey. He is forced to remain in an Iranian village close to the border.

As his actors perform their own story of attempted escape to Europe, Panahi finds himself coming up against suspicion and local traditions in the village where he is staying.

Jafar Panahi's latest film is a testimony to how artistry and protest can find inspiration in the very restrictions that he and other creative voices face.

‘A piercingly self-aware portrait of an artist who is not afraid to depict himself and his craft as aloof or insular’ ★★★★ Observer

‘A dark postmodern satire about the unexpected film that emerges within a film about making a film’ Times

‘Life, as they say, goes on, and No Bears observes people toiling away at existing while Panahi wrestles with the existential, this juxtaposition providing the cleverly timed comic relief that aids his witty social commentary’ Little White Lies

Then one evening he is struck by a revelation. It is as simple as it is profound. With a new energy Mr Williams sets about creating a legacy for the next generation.

ROH Live: Like Water for Chocolate

3 hours and 10 minutes (inc interval)

A co-production between The Royal Ballet and American Ballet Theatre, inspired by Laura Esquivel’s novel. This modern Mexican classic is a captivating family saga.

Tita lives with her family on a ranch in Mexico. She falls in love with Pedro. But when they want to marry, family tradition prevents it. Tita must remain unmarried in order to care for her mother.

Tita’s love for cooking is such that her own emotions are transmitted to others through the food she prepares. As her moods change in response to events in her life, the consequences for all those around her become ever more startling…

Mexican conductor Alondra de la Parra also acts as musical consultant for composer Joby Talbot’s newly commissioned score. Artistic Associate Christopher Wheeldon worked closely with novelist Laura Esquivel to reshape her richly layered story into an entertaining and engrossing new ballet.

Suitable for ages 12+ years


‘Not all choreographers are good directors, but Christopher Wheeldon is. Even when dealing with a tricky text such as Laura Esquivel’s magical realist novel Like Water for Chocolate, his is a steady hand. His choreography seems in a telepathic relationship with the melody and mystery of Joby Talbot’s score, while Bob Crowley’s designs, inspired by Mexican architect Luis Barragán, give a sense of heat and isolation, and some visually arresting coups de theatre’ ★★★★ The Guardian
