Sun 19 Jun 3.45pm

Surviving Life (Theory & Practice) 15*
A married man (Václav Helsus) falls in love with the woman of his dreams – literally. Sent to a shrink to unravel what this could mean - in whose office portraits of Freud and Jung provide pithy commentary on the proceedings - he taps an unconcious world both playful and painful. Billed as a psycohoanalytical comedy, this dazzlingly inventive mix of animation and live action wowed at Venice 2010 and features a delightful cameo by the great director himself.
