In the type of film that the British have made their own, Very Annie Mary brings shades of Billy Elliot and Little Voice to the uplifting and often hilarious tale of an awkward and rebellious twenty something who somehow finds the strength to break free from the clutches of her eccentric yet domineering father and in doing so discovers that she has an extraordinary talent! With Jonathan Pryce as the Pavarotti impersonating baker and Rachel Griffiths as the very talented but very confused Annie-Mary. Also featuring Hob and Nob, the gay café owners, and the Ogw Women’s Institute Village People tribute band.
Zürich in the mid-1950s: The young shy teacher Ernst Ostertag becomes a member of the gay organization Der Kreis. There he gets to know the transvestite star Röbi Rapp - and immediately falls head over heels in love with him. Röbi and Ernst live through the high point and the eventual decline of the organisation, which, in the whole Europe, is seen as the symbol of gay emancipation. Ernst finds himself torn between his bourgeois existence and his commitment to homosexuality, for Röbi it is about his first serious love relationship. A relationship which will last a lifetime. From the present, the film looks back to the time when the Mother of all European homosexual organisations had its high point until it fell apart. While the repression against homosexuals became increasingly more intense in Zurich, two young and very different men fight for their love and - together with their friends - for gay rights.

James Suckling: 94/100 Punkte "Very pretty and refined with an excellent depth of fruit and attraction. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh and subtle finish. Shows elegance." WineSpectator: 91-94/100 Punkte "This has some eye-opening toasty depths, with warm ganache and vanilla notes leading the way for a very polished core of plum preserve flavors. A bit monochromatic, but it is a pretty color." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 93-95+/100 Punkte "The deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Le Gay is youthfully mute, opening with black cherries, wild blueberries and mulberry scents with suggestions of violets, licorice and black soil. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers beautifully delineated fruit with oodles of freshness and firm yet beautifully ripe tannins, finishing very long and perfumed." Vinous (Neal Martin): 90-92/100 Punkte "The 2017 Le Gay has a strong whiff of the sea coming from the glass, brine and a little Japanese nori (seaweed) that is neatly sutured into the black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a little oaky at the moment with dark chocolate and a little leather tincturing the black and red fruit. It just feels a little predictable on the finish whereas the best recent vintages of Le Gay have fanned out and demonstrated more precision. Nevertheless, Le Gay often blossoms during its élevage so this might surprise when in bottle." Wine Enthusiast: 92-94/100 Punkte "Barrel Sample. This is a dense, opulent wine—the epitome of the Pomerol appellation. It is generous and open, with great dark fruits and integrated tannins that will allow the wine to age. Drink from 2024." Weinwisser: 18/20 Punkte "90 % Merlot. 10 % Cabernet Franc, 23 hl/ha. Purpurgranat. Dichtes, verwobenes Waldbeerenbouquet, dahinter Schattenmorellensaft und Holundergelee. Am cremigen Gaumen mit feinsandigem Tannin und süssem Extrakt. Im langen, gebündelten Finale eine Orgie von blauen Beeren, Mokkacreme und Lakritze. 2025 – 2045" Bitte beachten Sie die Sonderbedingungen der Subskription in unseren AGB.
From the acclaimed team that brought you the hit gay drama SHANK, RELEASE is an explosive drama about violence, abuse and budding love behind walls of a hellish prison. After finding himself locked-up for a serious crime, young priest Jack (Daniel Brocklebank) struggles to adapt to life in an increasingly volitile prison replete with corrupt guards and a vulnerable cellmate (Wayne Virgo from SHANK). However, when he meets guard Martin (Garry Summers) a passionate but clandestine affair develops and he gets a new lease of life. Both men’s dreams of escaping together are threatened as tensions rise and battle lines are drawn, and soon their very survival becomes paramount. More visceral and gut-wrenching than most gay cinema in recent memory, RELEASE’s unflinching exploration of justice, retribution, repression, religion and love is an example of British cinema at its most refreshing, controversial and exciting.

Château Le Gay beobachten wir bereits seit Jahren. In 2015 jetzt der Durchbruch - dem Team ist ein Blogbuster gelungen, der in seiner Preisklasse seines Gleichen sucht! Im Bukett eine sehr schöne Fruchtsüße, am Gaumen Blaubeere, ganz fein anklingende Cassis-Note (unglaublich interessant), Kaffee und schwarze Schokolade! Der Wein hält sich aufgrund einer betörenden Frische und Mineralität wunderbar lang am Gaumen. Chapeau! (95-96 Punkte) Wine Advocate: 94-96/100 Punkte The 2015 Le Gay comes from the 6.5-hectare Pomerol estate, of which 2.09 hectares are currently being restructured. It is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc picked from 27 September until 8 October at one degree lower alcohol than Montviel; it has a fragrant bouquet with delineated red cherries, crushed strawberry and hints of vanilla from the 100% new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, ripe and rounded in the mouth, very well balanced and very smooth. This just glides across the mouth and once that new oak has been absorbed, this will be a gorgeous Le Gay to behold. Do not overlook this Cru because it has been on a roll in recent years. Trinkgenuss: 2020 bis 2050 Weinwisser (Rene Gabriel): 18/20 Punkte 90 % Merlot, 10 % Cabernet Franc. Dunkles Granat, recht satt in der Mitte, rubiner Rand. Das Bouquet zeigt eine tolle, sehr fruchtreife Süsse, rotes Pflaumenmus, Früchtetee und feine Kräuternoten. Im Gaumen dunkelmalzig, fast nur schwarze Beeren, Mokka und schwarze Pralinen, im Finale Heidelbeeren ä gogo. Glücklicherweise habe ich ihn im Saal vom Syndicat in Pomerol nochmals nach verkostet. Das Muster gefiel mir um Längen besser als jenes auf dem Chäteau. Trinkgenuss: 2024 bis 2042 James Suckling: 95-96/100 Punkte "A tight and racy red with walnut skin, pecan nuts, chili and spice. Blackberry. Full body, round texture. Chewy. Very promising. Like the great Le Gays from the 1980s."
