Film show: Charlotte Le Bon’s début feature takes us to the ghostly ‘Falcon Lake’


After years in front of the camera, she’s now crafted a teen romance with a difference. Director Charlotte Le Bon’s haunting “Falcon Lake” conjures up the intensity of first love. She joins us in the studio to talk about building a complex female protagonist, about how visual arts feed into her filmmaking and touches on playing trailblazing artist Niki de Saint Phalle in the future.

We also discuss French documentary “Tax Me if You Can”, which reveals the dirty tricks deployed by institutions and individuals to escape the taxman. Film critic Lisa Nesselson tells us why it’s a thoroughly entertaining take on financial mischief on a massive scale.

And we take a look at Hirokazu Kore-eda’s latest release “Broker”, as the Japanese director decamps to South Korea for a tale of family, destiny and the ties that bind us.
