As Glasgow celebrates New Year’s Eve, a chance encounter brings Jake (Josh O’Connor) and Elena (Laia Costa) together and the attraction is instant. Sexy and smitten, they’re totally swept up in each other and the relationship develops at speed.

CFF: Honeyland

In a deserted Macedonian village, Hatidze, a 50-something woman, trudges up a hillside to check her bee colonies nestled in the rocks. Serenading them with a secret chant, she gently manoeuvres the honeycomb without netting or gloves. Back at her homestead, Hatidze tends to her handmade hives and her bedridden mother, occasionally heading to the capital to market her wares. One day, an itinerant family installs itself next door, and Hatidze’s peaceful kingdom gives way to roaring engines, seven shrieking children, and 150 cows.

CFF: Monos

Alejandro Landes delivers one of the most talked-about films of the year: a hallucinogenic, intoxicating thriller about child soldiers. In competition at London Film Festival this year. High in the mountains of South America, above the billowing clouds but with gunshots heard in the distance, a motley group of child and teenage soldiers train and wait for instruction. This might be some teen rave gone feral, but for the deadly seriousness underlined by the presence of an American hostage, the Doctora.
