Of the newly-released (in UK) films I have seen so far this year (and possibly late in 2002), my list would look sonething like this:

1. Lilja 4-Ever
2. Etre et avoir; The Man Without a Past
3. Le Fils; Le Souffle; Broken Wings
4. Elling

Nowhere in Africa and The Pianist were two films which failed to fulfil my high expectations, created doubtless by the storm of Oscar-fuelled publicity surrounding them both.
