NEW:A retrospective of Michael Mann's films!

The retrospective of Michael Mann's films brings nine significant films by one of the most important contemporary Hollywood filmmakers, leading American and world directors. In addition to his acclaimed thrillers such as "Awakened Conscience" (1999), "The Thief" (1981), "The Manhunter" (1986), "The Last of the Mohicans" (1992), and "Ali" (2001) are also on this list.

Mann is an artist who always creates a realistic and visually impressive world, an often cruel and merciless urban milieu. The retrospective starts with "Heat" (1995), an adaptation of Mann's own TV movie "The Showdown in LA" (1989), this time starring Al Pacino and Robert De Niro .

Mann is responsible for the first adaptation of a novel by Thomas Harris from the series about Hannibal Lecter - in the film "Manhunter" (1986), which did not do well at the time of its premiere, but over time it was recognized by critics as a worthy achievement and it gained cult status.

"The Last of the Mohicans" (1992) is considered one of the highlights of Mann's oeuvre, and it is also remembered for the almost unreal beauty of the main characters unforgettably embodied by Daniel Day-Lewis, Madeleine Stowe, Eric Schweig, and Jodhy May .

The thriller "Awakened Conscience" (1999), based on true events about a scientist who decided to testify that a large tobacco corporation concealed information about the harmful effects of cigarettes, features convincing acting performances by Al Pacino and Russell Crowe .

"Collateral" (2004), is the first feature film from a major Hollywood studio that is shot mostly on a digital camera. This movie was praised for Mann's distinctive, impressive visual style and Tom Cruise's performance as the villain.

In addition to being a director and screenwriter, Mann distinguished himself as a producer, and this is where the popular TV series "Miami Vices" from the eighties stands out.  

This retrospective also includes the biographical drama "Ali" (2001) about Muhammad Ali, in which he focused on the period from 1964 to 1974, crowned by two great matches - the first winning the title of world champion and the return of the title. Ali himself believed that only Will Smith could embody him in the film, which was achieved.

The film "Jericho Mile" (1979) was filmed as a television special in Folsom Prison, and most of the characters were played by the inmates themselves, members of various gangs. Mann was fascinated by the social life in the prison, characterized by the division into several main gangs.
