Humour and Irony in European Cinema

In troubled times, laughter is often the only way in which to respond to the world.

In this series of films, the Film Studies department at the University of Edinburgh introduce a series of wry, amusing and sometimes absurd films that reflect and comment on the real situation of Europe in ways that sometimes apparently serious films cannot.
