In this week's Film Programme Francine Stock talks to Ralph Fiennes about his directorial debut, Coriolanus, and the juggling needed to act and direct in the same picture. She also examines the lure of the short film with Terry Gilliam and Ewan Bailey. Ewan is taking his beautiful and harrowing film, DeafBlind to the Slamdance festival this week --it was selected from thousands of entries for the prestigious showcase -- and Terry's stylish and sinister account of a foreign holiday -- The Wholly Family -- premieres on line next week...a first for him and an adventure which he's embraced with open arms. To bring the programme to a resounding close the critic Maria Delgado explains why the Spanish prison drama, Cell 211, which is released this week on DVD, deserves to cement the reputations of its leading actor, Luis Tosar and its director, Daniel Monzon.
