  • FFF: Sunday, April 10 Noon at Regal Winter Park - Chekhov for Children (3 Stars) There is no knowledge of Anton Chekhov required for this touching documentary about a group of New York City junior high schoolers putting on Uncle Vanya in the late 1970s. The play, which should | 4/7/2011
  • FFF: Monday, April 11 6:30 p.m. at Enzian Theater - La Pivellina (2 Stars) A middle-aged carny with candy-apple hair (Patrizia Gerardi) finds a baby abandoned in sketchy suburban Rome. Rather than call the cops, she takes the toddler to her caravan, home of Europe's least-chee | 4/7/2011

  • FFF: Wednesday, April 13 1:15 at Enzian Theater - Dog Sweat (4 Stars) The Western media generally fails to paint a human portrait of young Middle Easterners living under Islamist regimes. Usually, they're portrayed only in terms of conflict. The beauty of this movie, filmed secre | 4/7/2011
  • FFF: Thursday, April 14 6:45 p.m. at Enzian Theater - Square Grouper: The Godfathers of Ganja (4 Stars) Finally, a documentary that's supposed to be better when you're high. (As opposed to the accidental brilliance of toking during Spellbound.) Jumping off of the premise that So | 4/7/2011
  • FFF: Friday, April 15 3:30 p.m. at Regal Winter Park - 
Red Chapel (3 Stars) The most interesting part of Red Chapel is the fact that it fails. It fails in interesting ways, but it still fails. Its stated mission was to undermine the North Korean state with a (tremendously unf | 4/7/2011

Bots High (4 Stars) I'd forgotten about Battle Bots until seeing this absorbing documentary about a group of high schoolers from Miami designing and eventually pitting their bots against one another. The film follows three set | 4/7/2011

7 p.m. at Enzian Theater - River of Grass A screening of the 1994 film directed by Kelly Reichardt and set in the Everglades, part of curator Scott Foundas' "Florida Films" series.

8:30 p.m. at Regal Winter Park - Potiche (4 Stars) The latest from prolific French filmmaker Francois Ozon harbors resonant messages about women's liberation and the 1970s organized labor movement, amid the seemingly insubstantial context of a romantic farce. The movie's colorful visual palette and formal playfulness make it more buoyant, and a lot more fun, than the recent thematically similar Made in Dagenham. Catherine Deneuve and Gerard Depardieu chew the scenery with humor and class. -John Thomason

9:15 p.m. at Enzian Theater - 
Fanny, Annie & Danny (2 Stars) 
You know how every Thanksgiving or Christmas you read about a dysfunctional family gathering that ended in a bloodbath? Imagine sitting through nearly 90 minutes of prelude to the event. Fanny, Annie & Danny is a low-budget tale of variously screwed-up siblings coming home for Christmas to the ugliest (on the inside) Ma and Pa one can imagine, mainly because they all have nowhere else to go and are just that full of self-loathing. It ends in revelations and tragedy, the latter of which is both lazily earned and, I suppose, 
sadly realistic. -JS

9:30 p.m. at Regal Winter Park - Shut Up Little Man! An Audio Misadventure (2 Stars) This documentary about two raging alcoholics and the men who taped their screaming matches begins as an interesting examination of an organic cult phenomenon - the tapes were discovered by the San Francisco hipster set and turned into comic books and plays - but quickly peters out. At first, it works as a curiosity, but the two men who taped their crazy neighbors turn from pleasantly surprised accomplices into bickering, mean-spirited opportunists milking a sliver of an interesting story. By the time they're hassling one of their neighbor's now-elderly friend at his front door, you just wish "Eddie Lee Sausage" and "Mitchell D" would, well, shut up. -JS
