Doing the right thing carries risks and rewards in Paradise, a wonderfully melancholic fish out of water farce with a soulful performance from rising star Vincenzo Nemolato. Sicilian slushie vendor Calogero is enrolled in a witness protection programme after observing a Mafia killing. Now he is far from home as the sole resident of the Paradise inn high in the Alps. The arrival of a fellow Sicilian (the deadpan Giovanni Calcagno) is more than a coincidence and prompts Calogero to take desperate measures. Perhaps the two men have more in common than they realise.

Also screening on Fri 6 Mar, 9pm (Cineworld)
