Sterritt ** See full review.

King of Hearts (Not rated)

Director: Philippe de Broca. With Alan Bates, Geneviève Bujold, Jean-Claude Brialy, Pierre Brasseur. (102 min.)

Sterritt *** Sojourning in a French town during World War I, a British soldier becomes

the unlikely hero of lunatics in a local asylum, bringing antic adventures and newfound dangers for all of them. This engaging 1966 comedy isn't de Broca's best movie, but it was so popular with American audiences in the late '60s that it's still one of the era's most fondly remembered cult classics. In English, French, and German with English subtitles.

Washington Heights (R)

Director: Alfredo De Villa. With Tomas Milian, Judy Reyes, Manny Perez, Jaime Tirelli. (80 min.)

Sterritt *** A young Latino man dreams of success as a comic-book artist while working in his father's New York City bodega and coping with the challenges of inner-city poverty and crime. De Villa's debut film is persuasively written and acted, if a tad rougher around the edges than one might wish.
