Our Little Girl. 1935.

Our Little Girl. 1935.
Our Little Girl is a 1935 drama, in which Shirley Temple and Joel McCrea play the leading roles. The film was the final work of the veteran director, John S. Robertson.
The protagonist, Molly Middleton (Temple), is the daughter of a physician, Donald Middleton (McCrea), and his neglected wife, Elsa (Rosemary Ames), who becomes attracted to her husband's best friend, Rolfe Brent (Lyle Talbot).
Our Little Girl is largely overshadowed not only by its predecessors, Bright Eyes and The Little Colonel, but also its immediate successors, Curly Top and The Littlest Rebel — all major hits for Temple that launched her international stardom. Unlike her other films of this period, it included no dancing and only one song. She played a character neither partially nor completely orphaned, as she had, or would, in nearly all of her other films. Our Little Girl was the penultimate film by Temple during her time at Fox in which she did not play an orphan. The last such film would be The Blue Bird: in her next thirteen movies, she would play the part of an orphan.
The doctor Don Middleton (Joel McCrea) is so immersed in his work that he neglects his wife, Elsa (Rosemary Ames), who begins spending more time with her husband's best friend. The two develop an intimate attraction. Don and Elsa decide to divorce, ignorant of the effect on their daughter Molly (Shirley Temple). When Elsa decides to remarry, Molly runs away from home.
Director: John S. Robertson.
Cast: Shirley Temple, Rosemary Ames, Joel McCrea, Lyle Talbot, Erin O'Brien-Moore, J. Farrell MacDonald, Poodles Hanneford, Margaret Armstrong, Leonard Carey, Rita Owin.

Lulu. 1980. DVD.

Lulu. 1980. DVD.
 Lulu is based on the same novel that G.W. Pabst's Pandora's Box was adapted from. Pandora's Box is one of the greatest films ever made so Lulu was bound to suffer by comparison. Both film versions tell the tragic story of Lulu, a vivacious woman, who attracts men (and women) eventually driven to desperation by their obsessions for Lulu.
The story of a sexually enticing young dancer who rises up in society through her relationships with wealthy men, but later falls into poverty and prostitution, culminating in an encounter with Jack 'the Ripper'.
Louise Brooks in Pandora's Box radiated sensuality. She showed no bare flesh but she had a screen charisma that made the audience believe that men would follow her to their destruction. This viewer would certainly have. In the film Lulu, the character Lulu is played by Anne Bennent, who spends a fair amount of her screen time naked. Yet, for all of her bare flesh, Miss Bennent does not have one-tenth the sensuality (or the acting chops) of a fully clothed Louise Brooks. For all of its nudity, the 1980 film is less erotic than Pabst's silent adaptation from 1929.
Director: Walerian Borowczyk.
Cast: Anne Bennent, Michele Placido, Jean-Jacques Delbo, Hans-Jürgen Schatz, Bruno Hübner, Beate Kopp, Heinz Bennent, Udo Kier, Pierre Saintons.

Los niños abandonados / The Abandoned Children. 1975.

Los niños abandonados / The Abandoned Children. 1975.
Danny Lyon is one of America's great photographers, best known for his series on Chicago bike gangs and his on-going series of death row inmates in the Texas prison system. Lyon was partners with Robert Frank in a company they formed to make documentaries and support their photographic work when he made this poetic cinema-verité portrait of homeless children on the streets of Santa Marta, Colombia. Lyon's remarkable trademark ability to be with the boys as if he were one of them allows him (and us) to experience their day-to-day lives. Punctuated by songs written and sung by one of the boys, the film has a transcendent objectivity tinged with heartbreaking beauty. Restored at 2K by Mark Rance from the original camera negative held at the George Eastman House, the audio has been restored from the original production tapes. This effort is part of an on-going collaboration between Watchmaker Films and Lyons' Bleak Beauty.

Mababangong Bangungot / Perfumed Nightmare. 1977.

Mababangong Bangungot / Perfumed Nightmare. 1977.
 Mababangong Bangungot or Perfumed Nightmare is a 1977 Philippine film starring, written, and directed by Filipino filmmaker Kidlat Tahimik. It tells the story of a young Filipino taxi driver infatuated the idea of space travel and the West who gradually becomes disillusioned after living in Paris. The film was well received by critics upon release, even earning the International Film Critic's Prize at the Berlin Film Festival.
Kidlat Tahimik is a young man living in a small Filipino village crossing the bridge--"the bridge of life"--to his village. He longs to be part of the developed world, and forms the Werner von Braun fan club. When an American arrives for an aborted international conference, he gets his chance. The American asks him to come to Paris, to run his chewing-gum-ball machine concession on the streets. In Paris, and on a trip to Germany, he makes friends and discovers that progress in the developed world sacrifices important values. Backgrounded by footage of a summit meeting in Paris, and unable to return to an idealized image of his past, he stubbornly refuses to capitulate to the terms of progress, resigning from his post as head of the Werner von Braun fan club and maintaining that he will find his own way.

Al otro lado. 2004.

Al otro lado. 2004.
Al Otro Lado ("To The Other Side") is a 2004 Mexican film directed by Gustavo Loza. The film follows the story of three children, one from Mexico, Cuba, and Morocco, as they attempt to deal with realities of immigration in their societies. The film won three awards at the Lleida Latin-American Film Festival in 2006, including Best Film and the Audience Award; Vanessa Bauche won best actress at the festival for her performance. Al Otro Lado was also the Mexican candidate for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film at the 78th Academy Awards, but was not selected as one of the final five nominees.
The movie is composed by three short films that, in appearance, are connected by a theme: the immigrants lacking identity papers. This it is not completely true if we set us in the plot of the story that happens in Cuba, where a boy wants to seek his father, an American citizen.

De qué color es el viento / What Color Is the Wind? 1973.
ES. De qué color es el viento es una película mexicana filmada en 1972 (aunque sería estrenada comercialmente el 13 de octubre de 1973) y fue producida y dirigida por Servando González, quien también escribió el guion junto con su esposa Miriam Salinas, sobre la base de una idea de Aida Berkman. El título de la película fue cedido por la poetisa Griselda Álvarez, y fue tomado de Letanía erótica para la paz: "Las auroras eran amargas / como niños ciegos que quieren saber de qué color es el viento".
Sergio y Eva son dos niños invidentes que estudian en la misma escuela de capacitación para ciegos y pronto se hacen amigos, a pesar de que él proviene de una familia humilde y ella de una familia de clase alta, por lo que la madre del chico le prohíbe que la vaya a visitar a su casa.
Por suerte para Sergio, su maestra Luz María decide ayudarlo costeando una parte de la operación con sus ahorros para que pueda ver. La operación resulta todo un éxito pero, ahora, el niño comienza a percatarse de que el mundo no es tan maravilloso como se lo había imaginado cuando estaba ciego y, aunado al hecho de que es ahora la mamá de Eva quien no quiere el trato con su hija (ya que la niña también había sido operada con anterioridad pero sin conseguir el mismo resultado), Sergio decide tomar una medida drástica para poder recuperar la amistad de su amiguita.

La tía Alejandra / Aunt Alejandra. 1979.
ES. La tía Alejandra es una película mexicana de horror dirigida por Arturo Ripstein. Fue estrenada en 1979, protagonizada por Isabela Corona y Diana Bracho.
La trama se sustenta en la llegada a un hogar familiar, formado por dos padres y sus tres hijos, de la anciana tía del marido. Una mujer en principio cariñosa que sufre graves cambios de humor, que se recluye en su habitación con bastante regularidad y que parece estar rodeada por un aura de misterio que causa rechazo en el mayor de los hijos y no hace más que traer desgracias a la casa desde su llegada.

EN. La Tía Alejandra (Aunt Alejandra) is a Mexican horror film of 1979, starring Isabela Corona.
The plot is based on the arrival of Aunt Alejandra to a familiar household consisting of two parents and three children. A woman who is loving, in principle, suffers severe mood swings and strange things happen in her room quite regularly and that seems to be surrounded by an aura of mystery. Rejected by the eldest child, she only serves to bring misfortune to them since coming home. Auntie has a fortune that will surely help her relatives, but really begins to destroy the whole family with diabolical acts, and attempts to teach children witchcraft. When one of the children mocks her, she caused his death. When her nephew dismisses of his house, she chokes him in his own bed. When the older girl burns her face, Alejandra burns an entire room with the girl inside. Only surviving Lucía, the wife, and her young daughter, but she seems to have learned the secrets of Alejandra...
La Tía Alejandra is a curious and unusual, a rarity in the genre of Mexican Cinema. Not strictly a horror film, but conveys concern in many of its passages. It is not explicit in what it shows but rightly fiddles with witchcraft, curses, black Magic and Satanism. Not when graphic violence on screen display, but in a subtle way the sample with an elegant ferocity that causes discomfort even viewer. The staging of Ripstein is austere. But his control over the narrative tempo is excellent. With the atmosphere and the magnetic presence of a large Isabela Corona that from a physical get feeble and helpless to convey a menacing tone that seems unfeasible but for the good work between director and actress.
Director: Arturo Ripstein.
Cast: Diana Bracho, Isabela Corona, Manuel Ojeda, María Rebeca, Lilian Davis, Adonay Somoza Jr., Juan José Espinoza, Humberto Vilches, María Barber.
