Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

Roman Polanski has been denied bail by the Swiss Justice Ministry. He is currently being held there for possible extradition to the US for unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor.

Folco Galli, a spokesman for the Ministry, told the Associated Press that bail was refused due to fears that he would flee the country. US authorities have been trying to extradite the director since he fled the country 30 years ago after confessing to statutory rape of a 13 year old girl.

The US have 60 days to file a formal extradition request, which, if approved, can be appealed against. Polanski will remain in custody throughout his ongoing appeal. The hearing will start in the next few weeks.
