ALLIED

There was a big brouhaha about this film as it came out around the time that it's star Brad Pitt was divorcing Angelina Jolie.

After watching the movie you'll probably be thinking that this is the sort of film that needs all the publicity that it needs, good, bad or indifferent. From the very beginning the movie is weighed down with cinematic history. If you are going to set a Second World War love story in any place on earth then setting it in Casablanca has to be one of the most audacious moves that a screen writer can make. It is in this city that Brad Pitt, a Canadian who has signed up to fight for the British, meets up with a French resistance fighter, played by Marion Cotillard, to plan and carry out the killing of a top German

Between Land And Sea & Further Beyond involving drama about Mathilde, a young French Red Cross doctor, who comes to the aid of a group of nuns, many of whom have been raped by Soviet soldiers.

Based on real events, director Anne Fontaine (Coco Before Chanel) explores this fraught situation with great humanity and sensitivity.

Mathilde protects the nuns not only from further attacks but also from the Mother Superior who'd prefer to conceal the scandal at all costs.

The Innocents is an emotionally layered, tender and insightful drama. The complexities of trauma and shame are deftly and sensitively handled through the prism of faith and compassion.

The Innocents screens in Garter Lane Arts Centre on Sunday, March 12th at 7.30pm. Booking 051-855038 & garterlane.ie.

Two contrasting Irish made documentaries are on the running order in Garter Lane Arts Centre next week. Between Land and

Applications are now being invited for the thirteenth annual Ted & Mary O’Regan Arts Bursary.

The Bursary was inaugurated in 2005 to honour the memory of one of Waterford’s best loved and respected couples. The purpose of the Award is to assist an individual or individuals, either from or with a strong connection to Waterford City or County, to pursue and develop their chosen arts discipline.

Applicants should note that the criteria for the Bursary are open and flexible and that people of all ages may apply. Whilst the Bursary has, in the past facilitated recipients to attend a third level arts course, this is not a pre-requisite. The Award will aim to fill the financial gap which prohibits an arts worker or arts student of any age or any arts discipline achieving their artistic goal.

The Bursary is funded by a combination

Author: David Young Price 8.99 Euro

by Marco Vichi Translated by Stephen Sartarelli Published by Hodder & Stoughton Price €25

The first novel in this series, published just a couple of years ago, won the Crime Writer's Association's award for Best Historical novel.

Now the follow-up, Stasi Wolf, is on the shelves continuing the story of Karin Muller, a detective in the East German police. What made the first novel such a success was the time period, the 1970's, that the book was set in, where it was set as well as the sheer lack of understanding that most people here in the West had/have for what went on there. What we do know is that the Stasi, the secret police, were everywhere and controlled practically every section of East German life. Their reach was enormous and if you got on the wrong

Quangodelic band leader Pat Allot says that April Fool’s Day is the perfect time for a gig by the fourteen-piece ensemble, whose performances include papier maché animal masks, frequent mutiny in the form of break-out jams, and lots of dancing. “We don't care how stupid we look; we just care about FUNK,” says Pat, who frequently plays while wearing a home-made puffin mask. “Pure wonky Funk. We play live music that people can get sweaty to. We play party music. We are the party.”

Quangodelic have been building up a cult following with regular gigs in their hometown of Cork, as well as in DeBarra’s in Clonakilty, Townlands Carnival in Macroom, Elysian Circus and Kfest in Killorglin.

But Waterford holds a special place in their heart; several band members hail from the Déise, including Tramore-born drummer Conor Gilligan, and gigs in The
