Seven internationally respected filmmakers offer different perspectives on time and fate -- some witty, some somber -- in this omnibus film, with the stories linked by performances from jazz great Hugh Masekela. Dogs Have No Hell by Aki Kaurismaki follows one man's unusual journey as he celebrates getting out of jail by travelling to Siberia in search of a wife. Victor Erice directed the impressionistic Lifeline, in which a family of Spanish farmers try to help an infant who has fallen ill.

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
While the results are predictably mixed, most manage to rise to the occasion, with Spike Lee, Spain's Victor Erice and Chinese director Chen Kaige doing particularly impressive stuff.
Lifeline is a compelling mixture of elements -- rural life and historical detail, physical labor and a child's imagination -- that continually unveils new meaning.
If all the sections were as strong as Lee, Herzog and Jarmusch's, tempus would surely fugit, but as it stands this is occasionally meandering.
