It's the Guardian's Pick of the Week, and may well be the most poignant, beautiful and important cinema experience you'll have this year (or next, or the one after maybe).
Buy tickets for the Ritzy screening in Brixton tomorrow night (Tuesday 27th July) or in Brighton on Sunday 1st August.

Do you like a little Serge? Who doesn't, the man charms you like you're a snake and he's got a pipe and a basket. A pipe and a basket made of pure solid love that is. Oh, and also he's got that amazing back catalogue of music, acting, directing, writing, photography...
To co-incide with the release of the new Gainsbourg bio-pic, unexpectedly titled 'Gainsbourg', Branchage is celebrating all things Serge at the Curzon Soho on July 30th - Joignez-nous pour celebrer la Bourg!
Join us for a night of film and live music - we've got it all going on late into the night. A selection of Serge Gainbourg's video performances, Hige Club (a collective formed especially for this one-off event) perform Charlotte Gainsbourg's gallic album 'Charlotte Forever', penned by her father, and a live performance, by Andy Philip and Tim Rose, of Gainsbourg songs selected from his massive oeuvre. Then it's into the screening room for a rare big-screen showing of Serge's 1976 directorial debut, the highly controversial JE T'AIME MOI NON PLUS - risque! - starring Jane Birkin and infamous Warhol superstar Joe Dallesandro.
And here's the real kicker... Joann Sfar, director of said new Gainsbourg bio-pic, 'Gainsbourg', will be in attendance.

And it wasn't just a jolly... Branchage brought Amiina's live soundtrack to Lotte Reiniger's fairytale animations to the Film & Music Arena. And it was a packed out Arena.
What a pleasure to bring an original Branchage commission and a festival favourite to Latitude. As well previously performed scores to Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, Latitude commissioned a soundtrack to a third classic Reiniger piece - Aladdin.
In other news - peopled played scrabble. That's latitude for you.
