ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19) A previous misunderstanding continues to taint the atmosphere to some extent in the early part of the week. But cooler heads prevail, and the situation eases by the week's end. TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20) While the artistic aspect of the Divine Bovine is well-served this week, that practical side is also getting the sort of recognition that could lead to a new and well-deserved opportunity. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) With home-related matters taking on more importance this week, now could be the time to make some long-deferred purchases. But shop carefully for the best quality at the best price. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Congratulations. While that family problem might still rankle, it should be easing thanks to your efforts to calm the waters. Also, a workplace situation seems to be moving in your favor. LEO (July 23 to Aug 22) The Big Cat's energy levels should be rather high these days, and you might do well to tackle any tasks that still need doing. This will clear the way for those upcoming projects. VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sept 22) Someone's criticism might not be as negative as you perceive. Actually, it could be helpful. Discuss the matter with your critic, and you both could learn something valuable. LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22) A business matter could cause some friction among your colleagues. But once again, that logical mind of yours comes to the rescue. And the sooner it does, the better! SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov 21) There might still be some heated temper flare-ups out there. But your sensible self should advise you to stay out of these situations until things cool down and calm is restored. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21) Changing your mind could be the right thing to do if you can't resolve your doubts. You might want to discuss the matter with someone whose advice you trust. CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19) The Sea Goat's merrier side dominates this week, and this means that, despite your usual busy schedule, you'll be able to squeeze in parties and all sorts of fabulous fun times. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18) An educational opportunity could offer a lead to something other than what you had planned. But keep an open mind, and before you decide to turn it down, check it out. PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20) The Piscean wit and wisdom helps you work through a situation that might have been accidentally or even deliberately obscured. What you unravel could prove to be very revealing. A SOLDIER inspects a pair of Tiwi burial poles, located at the Low Level caravan park, during World War II.

WILD TALES THURSDAY, August 20 6.30pm: catch up with friends, glass of wine $5, snacks provided 7pm: film starts Classification: MA15+ Genre: Drama, mystery, suspense, comedy Director: Damin Szifrn Cast: Ricardo Darin, Liliana Ackerman, Luis Manuel Altamirano Garcia, Alejandro Angelini Country: Argentina Language: Spanish Running time: 122 minutes INEQUALITY, injustice and the demands of the world we live in cause stress and depression for many people. Some of them, however, explode. This is a movie about those people. The characters of Wild Tales cross the thin line that divides civilisation and barbarism. A lover's betrayal, a return to the repressed past and the violence woven into everyday encounters drive the characters to madness as they cede to the undeniable pleasure of losing control. Argentinian writer-director Damin Szifrn's Wild Tales is developed around six distinct and fearlessly entertaining tales that range from uproariously funny to bleakly black. The film enacts a savage assault on contemporary Argentine society, skewering class and gender bias through a series of morbid segments alive with dark humour. There is no framework connecting the various stories and there are no titles to separate them. The only consistent element is a terrific sense of production values. Impeccably edited with fluid camerawork and a scale that includes a fair number of explosions, bloody fights and stunt work, the movie's polished quality holds its polemics together. Starring a who's-who cast of major Argentinean actors and co-produced by the Almodovar brothers, Wild Tales has won major film awards and was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at this years Academy Awards. >> film society
