B007 Ep 122 – The Handmaiden – Trolls – Toni Erdmann

In today’s recap Bina007 reviews three outstanding films playing at the BFI London Film Festival: Park Chan-Wook’s erotic thriller, THE HANDMAIDEN – the funny, smart heart-warming children’s animated film TROLLS – and the German tragicomedy TONI ERDMANN.  All three were exceptionally good, and dealt with love, although with very different audiences in mind!
