His only goal is to fight boredom until he's allowed to resume his detective duties, Ella's dying wish is to dance one last tango before her life is over. De Wet reluctantly agrees to help her fulfill her dream and, in so doing, realises his own need for healing and inner peace.

From July 19 you can see the much-lauded and anticipated award-winning international production from Austria, Amour, that won the 2013 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, and tells of a couple in their 80s. They are both cultivated, retired music teachers. Their daughter, who is also a musician, lives abroad with her family. One day, Anne has an attack. The couple's bond of love is severely tested.
The festival ends on July 21 with No!, a Chilean drama film directed by Pablo Larraín. The film is based on the unpublished play El Plebiscito, written by Antonio Skármeta. Mexican actor Gael García Bernal plays René, an in-demand advertising man working in Chile in the late 1980s. The historical moment the film captures is when advertising tactics came to be widely used in political campaigns. The campaign in question was the historic 1988 plebiscite of the Chilean citizenry over whether general Augusto Pinochet should have another eight-year term as President.
