Alice in den Städten / Alice in the Cities. 1974. HD.
 Alice in the Cities (German: Alice in den Städten) is a 1974 German road movie directed by Wim Wenders. It is the first part of Wenders' "Road Movie trilogy", also which includes The Wrong Move (1975) and Kings of the Road (1976). The film is shot in black and white by Robby Müller with several long scenes without dialogue. The film's theme foreshadows Wenders' later film Paris, Texas.
German journalist Philip Winter has a case of writer's block when trying to write an article about the United States. He decides to return to Germany, and while trying to book a flight, encounters a German woman and her nine year old daughter Alice doing the same. The three become friends (almost out of necessity) and while the mother asks Winter to mind Alice temporarily, it quickly becomes apparent that Alice will be his responsibility for longer than he expected. After returning to Europe, the innocent friendship between Winter and Alice grows as they travel together through various European cities on a quest for Alice's grandmother.
Director: Wim Wenders.

EN. Three flatmates in Mexico City face uncertainties: Lucía who has a great job as an art director for TV commercials is abusing alcohol and cocaine. She risks losing her job, going to prison for assault, and she's woefully in love with a bullfighter who may be two-timing her. Carmen, an artist without income, can be manic - snorting lots of cocaine and hanging out with a gay man and a transvestite. What's her future?

Lille Virgil og Orla Frøsnapper / Little Virgil and Freddy Frogface. 1980. DVD.

Lille Virgil og Orla Frøsnapper / Little Virgil and Freddy Frogface. 1980. DVD.
 DK. Lille Virgil og Orla Frøsnapper er en dansk film fra 1980. instrueret af Gert Fredholm. Manuskriptet er skrevet af Hans Hansen, Peter Høimark og Gert Fredholm efter en roman af Ole Lund Kirkegaard.
Filmen er en blanding af historierne; "Lille Virgil" og "Orla Frøsnapper"
Børnefilm om drengen Lille Virgil (Bror Bødtker-Næss), der bor alene i et hønsehus, med sin etbenet hane Sigurd, som vækker ham hver morgen. Sammen med sin trofaste ven Oskar (Christian Honoré) oplever han spændende ting, blandt landsbyens særprægede beboere. Drengenes største problem er dog Orla Frøsnapper (Allan Olsen), som er byens værste bølle, og som kan tabe sine bukser af bare skræk. En dag, Lille Virgil kommer forbi et omrejsende cirkus, bliver han tilbudt at pudse en kanon for at tjene til en cirkusbillet. Men imens dukker Orla Frøsnapper op, for at få fat i Lille Virgil. For at Orla Frøsnapper, ikke skal blive opdaget af kanonkongens ejermand, får Lille Virgil en god idé, som kommer Orla Frøsnapper til ære…
EN. Lille Virgil, 8 years old, lives by himself and his own rules, in a shed he has adapted himself. He spends his time looking after his chicken, helping village people, after a fashion, going to school (when they're not suspended), and grifting for what he needs. He and his best friend have a hairy old time with their exploits, including dodging Orla, the local ne'er do-well, and setting him up to get caught.
A magical journey into the heart of a child. It flows great in a happy mood all the way; not very much action and all these things movies have to content today. Still, for a kid, the antagonist, Orla Frogeater, is intimidating and scary at times. As is the dragon - is it real?
Director: Gert Fredholm.
Cast: Bror Bødtker-Næss, Allan Olsen, Christian Honoré, Katinka Bødtker-Næss, Karl Stegger, Elin Reimer, Peter Schrøder, Inger Hovman, Gotha Andersen, Arthur Jensen, Poul Nesgaard, Jess Ingerslev, Claus Nissen.

 FR. En mai 1968, Caroline, onze ans, quitte les événements parisiens pour la campagne. Sa Mère l'inscrit en arrivant à un stage d'équitation. Unique élève de Monsieur Peyrac, elle conçoit une folle passion pour le bel homme silencieux. Le problème est que sa mère aussi s'est entichée du beau professeur…
EN. This one is hard to find: a France 3 production that deals with the events of May 1968 as seen by a very impressionable twelve year old girl. Caroline and her mother and sister go to their house in the country to wait out the turmoil of the bogus revolution, while Dad keeps working in the city. Caroline falls for the dashing Philippe, her riding instructor (wonderful performance from Pascal Greggory, trimly bearded), and so does her mother; the latter two carry out a torrid affair.
Marie-France arrives on the scene, she is also struck by the macho Philippe and moves in with him. By now there are so many female aggressions going on, you wonder how they can all be resolved without wholesale killings.

Verbotene Liebe / Forbidden Love. 1989. HD.
  DE. Verbotene Liebe ist ein DEFA-Spielfilm des Regisseurs Helmut Dziuba aus dem Jahr 1989.
Der 18-jährige Georg liebt die 13-jährige Nachbarstochter Barbara (Julia Brendler). Als sich herausstellt, dass beide miteinander geschlafen haben, zeigt Barbaras Vater ("Tatort"-Ermittler Peter Sodann) den Jungen an - aber hauptsäch­lich, um dessen verhasstem Vater eins auszuwischen. Als Georg vor Gericht gestellt werden soll, bieten seine Mitschüler der Staatsmacht die Stirn… Das Drehbuch nach einer in der DDR lange verbotenen Erzählung lag drei Jahre lang auf Eis, erst am Vorabend der Wende konnte sich Helmut Dziuba an die Verfilmung machen - die leider etwas hölzern ausfiel.
Uncensored Version.
EN. Sensitive, honest, balanced, beautifully photographed drama that - 10 years after date - is still more actual considering the more and more uptight reaction towards sexuality as such of, and as expression of love between young people. With sharpness the film shows the inhuman attitude and petit bourgeois hypocracy of the community and the destructive effect of only following rules.

Dezember 1977 im Abendprogramm des Deutschen Fernsehens statt, eine Wiederholung in zwei Teilen am 3. und 4. Januar 1978 im Nachmittagsprogramm.
Die Vorstadtkrokodile, das ist eine widerspenstige Bande von 10-13-Jährigen. Nicht nur kess mit der Zunge, sondern auch mal flink mit der Faust. Um bei den Krokodilern aufgenommen zu werden, muss man eine gefährliche Mutprobe bestehen. Erst dann darf man sich das Bandenabzeichen, ein Krokodil, auf die Jeans nähen. So klettert Hannes auf den Dachfirst der alten Ziegelei, doch beim Abstieg rutscht er ab und bleibt hilflos an der Regenrinne hängen. Die Krokodile nehmen Reißaus. Ein Glück, dass Kurt alles beobachtet und die Feuerwehr ruft. Kurt ist an den Rollstuhl gefesselt, aber der "Rennfahrer" erkämpft sich mit Witz und Köpfchen einen Ehrenplatz in der Gruppe. Und weil Kurt mehr im Kopf hat als andere in den Beinen, gelingt es ihnen die Einbruchsbande, die in der Papageien-Siedlung ihr Unwesen treibt, zu stellen.

Valerie a týden divů / Valerie and Her Week of Wonders. 1970. HD.
A true masterpiece of Czechoslovak cinema!
CZ. Po adaptaci Kunderova románu "Žert" se Jaromil Jireš uchýlil ke zcela odlišné látce i k rozdílnému způsobu vyjadřování. Ve snivém výtvarně dekorativním vyprávění vylíčil osudy a pocity dospívající dívky, jež žije se svou přísnou babičkou ve starém domě a ocitá se v samém středu bizarních událostí, ohrožována tajemným "tchořím upírem"... Na vizuální podobě surreálné fantazie Vítězslava Nezvala se podílela Ester Krumbachová. Autoři hojně využívali hororových prvků i lyrické básnivosti.
EN. A thief awakens Valerie, just 13, taking earrings left to her by her mother. By morning, the earrings have been returned, Valerie's first period has begun, and a troupe and a missionary have arrived in her Medieval town. The thief is Orick; he reports to a cloaked constable who may also be the missionary. Attention to sexuality is everywhere: Valerie's grandmother's puritanical nature, the missionary's sermon to the town's virgins, the parish priest's attempt to seduce Valerie, and lusty adults at play. Valerie's nascent sexuality puts her in great danger. Can she navigate the passage from innocence to experience, a route teaming with vampires, a murderer, and an obscure family tree?

Toto le héros / Totò the Hero. 1991. HD.

Toto le héros / Toto the Hero. 1991. HD.
 FR. Toto le héros est un film franco-germano-belge réalisé par Jaco Van Dormael, sorti en 1991.
À travers une mosaïque complexe de flashbacks, un vieil homme du nom de Thomas Van Hasebroeck (Toto) se souvient de la vie apparemment sans éclat qu'il a menée et imagine comment les événements auraient pu tourner différemment.
Depuis l'âge de huit ans, Thomas est persuadé — à tort ou à raison — d'avoir été échangé par erreur à sa naissance avec un autre bébé, son voisin Alfred Kant. La jalousie ressassée à l'égard de cet homme mieux loti lui a gâché toute son existence, parfois avec des conséquences tragiques pour ses proches. Il ne songe qu'à se venger et envisage même de tuer Alfred. Pourtant Thomas trouvera sur le tard une manière plus originale de donner un sens à sa vie.
EN. Thomas and Alfred were born around the same time; a fire in the nursery had nurses scrambling to save the newborns. Because he felt that he deserved Alfred's good fortune at being born into a wealthy family, Thomas conceives the idea that he and Alfred were switched at birth, and he can't help seeing that his unhappiness should be Alfred's, from the loss of his sister to his inability to have a relationship with the woman Evelyne. So, as his life is ending, he formulates a plan of revenge against his bitter enemy, his lifetime adversary, the man who stole his existence.

La piccola nasconde il fuggitivo, ma ben presto la madre si accorge della presenza dell'uomo e intreccia con lui una relazione. Vera, avendo capito di chi si tratta, ha la ben precisa intenzione di servirsi di Federico per eliminare il marito. Simona, maturata in fretta, desidera un figlio da Federico. La situazione precipita, anche perché i sospetti della polizia e dei "vigilanti" si stanno accentrando sulla villa...
EN. Federico is a child-killer running from the law. Wounded, he is taken in by a 12 year old girl named Simona. Their strange love affair is interrupted by Simona's depressed, oversexed mother Vera, who concocts a plan with Federico to kill her wheelchair-bound, reclusive husband. Simona does not take kindly to this new relationship between Federico and Vera.
L'Immoralita is a film that is difficult to pigeon hole into one 'type' of film, but suffice to say it's an entertaining and well worked thriller with enough substance to satisfy most viewers, providing they can stomach the sometimes uncomfortable tone of the movie. Almost everything about the film really is rather detestable and as such the characters are hard to care for; making watching the film akin to watching a car crash at times. The film begins with a scene that sees a man carrying the body of a dead girl before burying her, and then being pursued by a bunch of people with guns. This man turns out to be Federico; a murderer and paedophile, wanted for killing children. Wounded, he bumps into a young girl who he befriends after she offers him shelter. The girl lives with her parents; the mother, lauded as the town slut, and her dilapidated father who is rotting away in a wheelchair. The murderer and the child grow closer together despite the law being after him and the pair develops a friendship that is shattered when the mother discovers the sheltered criminal.

L'isola / The Island. 2003. HD.

L'isola / The Island. 2003. HD.
 IT. Turi e Teresa sono figli di un pescatore che vive e lavora in un'isola siciliana. La loro e una vita semplice e pacifica, fatta di abitudini e fatiche quotidiane: accudire la nonna, pescare, gestire il bar al centro del paese.
Ma Turi, ormai, e quasi un uomo e deve iniziare ad uscire in mare con il padre.
Questo fatto finira con il rivoluzionare per sempre i rapporti tra fratello e sorella.
Lungometraggio d'esordio di Costanza Quatriglio, trentenne palermitana la quale non dimentica le sue origini documentaristiche e le innerva con una narrazione che sembra rimandare al cinema di matrice iraniana. La trama e molto esile e il film e legato a un lavoro di ricerca di sguardi e relazioni con la scabra struttura dell'isola di Favignana. Il montaggio, perfettamente sintonizzato con la colonna sonora musicale di Paolo Fresu, prova a fornire compattezza a un'opera prima che, pur con qualche intellettualismo di troppo (vedi la presunzione di poter pensare di fare a meno di una struttura narrativa solida), lascia ben sperare per il futuro.
EN. A coming of age story of a boy, Turi (Ernandes) and his younger sister, Teresa (Guarrasi) on an island off the coast of Sicily. Using mostly non professional actors in a neorealist style, this film creates a charming and seemingly authentic slice of village life.
The slow naturalistic pace, beautiful photography, a sense of the local customs & values, and a captivating performance by Veronica Guarrasi as Teresa make this well worth seeing. The director seem to have captured the end of childhood and the start of adolescence.
Director: Costanza Quatriglio.
Cast: Veronica Guarrasi, Ignacio Ernandes, Marcello Mazzarella, Erri De Luca, Anna Ernandes, Francesco Vasile, Ilary De Ioannon, Anna Rita Mazzara, Antonio Burdua, Maurizio Guarrasi, Salvatore Campo.

Cerf-volant du bout du monde / The Magic of the Kite. 1958.

Cerf-volant du bout du monde / The Magic of the Kite. 1958.
 FR. Cerf-volant du bout du monde est un film franco-chinois réalisé par Roger Pigaut en 1958. Il s'agit de la première coproduction franco-chinoise.
Dans les années 1950, à Montmartre, une bande d'enfants avec à sa tête Pierrot, toujours accompagné de sa petite sœur Nicole, découvre un magnifique cerf-volant échoué dans un arbre. Par ruse, Pierrot et ses amis récupèrent le cerf-volant et y découvrent une lettre écrite en chinois.
Grâce à un antiquaire qui leur traduit la lettre, les enfants apprennent qu'un petit garçon chinois, Song Tsiao Tsing, attend une réponse. Hélas, l'adresse est restée dans la queue du cerf-volant volée par Bébert, un ancien de la bande. L'antiquaire leur apprend également que le personnage représenté sur le cerf-volant est Sou Wou Kong, le roi des singes.
Pierrot, au fond de son lit, rêve que ce singe les transporte en Chine, lui et sa sœur, à la recherche de l'auteur de la lettre...
EN. This interesting little French film is set in a run-down suburb of Paris. It's about a group of bored children making mischief to fill the days (eg sticking a cat up a tree and then calling the fire brigade so they can watch them get it down!) One of them has a Chinese kite, with a message on a piece of paper in Chinese on it. His mates try to grab it to sell to an antique shop. One night, one of the boys and his sister are visited by a mysterious Chinaman and are promptly floated off on their bed to China in their pyjamas. The Chinaman clicks his fingers and they appear once again in their everyday clothes, and have all sorts of adventures in China.
Director: Roger Pigaut.
