EO15

Directed by Jerzy Skolimowski | Poland | 2022 | 1h 28m | Polish, French & Italian w/ English subtitles | Starring Isabelle Huppert, Sandra Drzymalska, Lorenzo Zurzolo, Mateusz Kosciukiewicz, Lolita Chammah

Released from a travelling circus, a grey donkey treks across the Polish and Italian countryside, experiencing cruelty and kindness in equal measure, all the while observing the follies and triumphs of humankind. Inspired by Robert Bresson’s 1966 film Au Hasard Balthazar, legendary filmmaker Jerzy Skolimowski’s (Deep End, The Shout) engrossing and surreal portrait of modern Europe won the Jury Prize at last year’s Cannes Film Festival.

Reviews

‘The effect is eerie, profound and emotional. As a mirror back onto humanity’s foibles and criminal excesses, EO is the perfect heir to Bresson’s long-suffering Balthazar.’
★★★★★
Phil de Semlyen, Time Out

‘No movie that I’ve seen this year has moved me as deeply, made me feel as optimistic about cinema or engaged me with such intellectual vigor as “EO,” whose octogenarian genius auteur and all the donkeys who play EO…deserve all the love and the carrots, too.’
Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
