Prepare for thrills and spills, Scandinavian-style: Clavelshay’s 2013 film and food season closes with a special screening of Jo Nesbo’s Headhunters. It’s about an upwardly mobile professional who supplements his income, mistress and breathtakingly beautiful wife with high-class art heists . All goes swimmingly until he decides to steal a priceless canvas from the wrong man (the drop-dead gorgeous Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) who’ll stop at nothing to destroy him. It’s time to ditch your un-watched Killing DVD boxed set and see the outrageous, hilarious and audacious Headhunters: it really does leave the rest of Scandinavian noir in the shade!

With its sublime Cannes and Alpes Maritimes locations, suave screenplay and sizzling chemistry between its stars, Cary Grant and Grace Kelly To Catch a Thief is a movie brimming with sumptuous colour, effortless style and Hollywood glamour.

Restaurateur (Stanley Tucci from The Devil Wears Prada) has one last chance to turn round the fortunes of his struggling Italian restaurant and rescue it from bankruptcy. His plan is to serve an Italian banquet for legendary crooner, Louis Prima together with the great and the good of his New Jersey clientele.

The trouble is, he’s having to contend with a wily rival restaurateur (Ian Holm); juggle his beautiful mistress (Isabella Rossellini) and statuesque girlfriend (Minnie Driver) and also persuade his single-minded, perfectionist brother to prepare and cook the greatest meal of their lives.

One of the films in the Film and Food pantheon, Big Night (1996) is a big-hearted movie about family, friendship and fettuccine; it also happens to be one of the funniest and most profound movies about the highs and lows of working in a restaurant.

So, do come and savour its many flavours, accompanied with two courses of delicious Italian fayre, Clavelshay-style; a movie quiz and introduction from MovieMail reviewer Alexander Ballinger. Salute!
