Ramchand Pakistani (2008)

Good-looking and worthwhile, albeit slightly sanitised and with some accent slippage.

Rang-e khoda (1999)

Full of simple beauty and warmth but a touch sentimental. It's deservedly popular, but there's a bit of a tendency for non-Iranian audiences to focus on it too much, while overlooking better Iranian films such as Leila, Secret Ballot, Under the Skin of the City, The Day I Became a Woman, The Circle and A Separation.

Rasputin (1996)

Fairly thickly fictionalised HBO treatment with some richly beautiful depictions of Russian Orthodox cathedral services and palace interiors. They must have had a great art department. Alexei Romanov is one of those royals who exercise considerable fascination, like the Empress Elisabeth of Austria, who was the subject of three romanticised 'Sissi films' in the 1950s. Here Alexei narrates, and it's an intelligent narration by Freddie Findlay; a pity then that Findlay doesn't have more to do, as the meat of the screenplay goes to the adult actors, with the Tsarevitch little more than a plot device.

Ratcatcher (1999)

Beautiful, grim, poetic. Reminiscent of the autobiographical films of Terence Davies and Bill Douglas.

Reach for Glory (1962)

Remarkable and overlooked. Won a United Nations award. On one level, it's simply the touching story of two thirteen-year-old boys who fall in love with each other. It also deals with questions of religious tolerance, class, cultural differences, patriotism and sissyhood, but unlike, say, Tea and Sympathy or Another Country, doesn't hit us over the head with them. Props for using a real native German speaker rather than a native English speaker with a fake accent. Martin Tomlinson and Oliver Grimm give fine performances as the two leads.

Ready? OK! (2008)

Charming and well-intentioned. Rather like Ma Vie en rose but more lighthearted.

Reifezeit (1976)

By Iranian director Sohrab Shahid-Saless, who also directed the wonderful Still Life (1974). Could make a good dual watch with Mamma Roma and Félicité.

Return from Witch Mountain (1978)

OK, but the first film was pretty good and, especially considering the ending, should have been left well enough alone.

The Return of the Psammead (1993)

Charming series based on Helen Cresswell's novel, which is a tribute to the work of the great E. Nesbit, pioneer of realistic fictional depictions of children and of low fantasy -- mind you, Edward Eager was also a great admirer of Nesbit's, and he used her inspiration to create not spinoffs but low fantasies set in the time and place he knew, such as the wonderful Half Magic. As Five Children and It, The Phoenix and the Carpet and the later standalone The Enchanted Castle have all been given TV series, it's a pity that The Story of the Amulet, the third book in the trilogy, never has been. For that matter, why hasn't Half Magic?
