FILM buffs will have the chance to enjoy several outstanding British films on various themes to suit different tastes when the British Film Week opens today, at the Hong Kong Science Museum Lecture Hall. Directed by Michael Whyte, The Railway Station Man tells the moving story of Helen, played by Julie Christie, who starts her life anew after the sudden death of her husband, and her relationships with her new lover and her teenage son. The Hawk carries a chilling plot on how a housewife, Annie, reacts against a cruel serial killer to protect herself and her children. Just Like a Woman is about an unusual relationship between a divorced housewife and her much younger American boyfriend who likes to dress up as a woman. Orlando is the fantasy journey through time of someone who lives from the Elizabethan era to the 20th century, first as a man, then as a woman. Paper Marriage is a love story of a Polish woman and a petty crook who find themselves drawn together against all odds. As You Like It is a Shakespearian comedy translated into modern times, bringing out with an ironical eye our concerns for environmental issues and the balance of nature. Crime Broker is another sensational film which portrays the double character of Holly Mcphee who, on the surface, is a respectable housewife and magistrate, but has a private obsession with crime, and her emotional entanglement with a criminologist who also has a dark side. Walk Me Home is an unusual love story set in the Europe of the '90s, describing an encounter between two people of very different background: an old man and a young lady research scientist. Freddie as F.R.O.7 is an animation story on how a French prince was turned into a frog and then later into agent F.R.O.7 of the French Secret Service who works against the power of darkness in Britain.
