Winner of Best Film at the London Film Festival 2015, directed by Athina Rachel Tsangari and co-written by Efthymis Filippou (whose Lobster was a surprise hit with the David Lean audience), Chevalier is an interesting, unconventional and amusing look at male bonding.

 

 

This Review from the New York Times, here also includes a link to the english sub-title Trailer. I’ve linked to the NYT rather than the more wordy (and worthy) review in Variety as the latter’s website seems slow to load.

 

while that english sub-title Trailer can also be seen below…..
