My Little Princess / I'm Not a F**king Princess. 2011. DVD.

My Little Princess / I'm Not a F**king Princess. 2011. DVD.
 FR. Hannah et Violetta forment un couple hors du commun : mère insaisissable et fillette en quête d’amour maternel, artiste fantasque et modèle malgré elle. Lorsqu’Hannah demande à sa fille si elle veut être son modèle, tout bascule dans la vie de Violetta qu
EN. My Little Princess is a 2011 French-Romanian drama film directed by Eva Ionesco and inspired by her relationship with her mother, the well-known artistic photographer Irina Ionesco whose pictures of her young daughter caused controversy when they were published back in the 1970s. The film illustrates a situation which at first glance seems to be a paradox: whilst revealing more and more of her daughter to the public the mother seems to get increasingly estranged from her and vice versa.
Violetta is raised by her grandmother. Her mother Hanna tries to make a living on taking photographs and concentrates on her dreams to become a famous artist. In order to succeed as an artist she doesn't worry about dating men of questionable reputation. Only every now and then her mother visits her daughter but during these occasions it occurs to her that her daughter could be a potential model. She starts exploiting her daughter who by transforming into a kind of Lolita becomes increasingly alienated from other children of her age. At school she is eventually frequently insulted and rejected. Then Mamie dies and Hannah's photographs are about to unequivocally overstep the line of acceptability. Hanna even coerces Violetta mercilessly into cooperation by withholding her food in case she doesn't agree to pose for increasingly daring photographs.
Director: Eva Ionesco.
Cast: Isabelle Huppert, Anamaria Vartolomei, Georgetta Leahu, Denis Lavant, Jethro Cave, Louis-Do de Lencquesaing, Pascal Bongard, Anne Benoît, Johanna Degris-Agogue, Lou Lesage, Nicolas Maury, Joe Sheridan.

Mords pas, on t'aime / Beiss nicht, man liebt dich. 1976.
Der 10-jährige Frédéric verbringt zusammen mit seiner gleichaltrigen Freundin Rose einige schöne Ferientage in einem kleinen französischen Ort. Dort lebt er bei seinen Großeltern. Sein Vater kümmert sich nur sehr selten um den Jungen. Frédéric und Rose machen das, was alle Kinder gerne machen. Sie hecken Streiche aus. So entwenden sie ein Schild aus der Kirche, auf dem auf einen heiligen Brunnen hingewiesen wird, in dem Touristen Münzen an die Heilige opfern. Sie bringen das Schild an einem See an, so dass die Touristen denken, dort wäre die heilige Quelle. Nachdem die Touristen wieder weg sind, baden die beiden nackt in dem See, und tauchen nach den reingeworfenen Münzen. In der Zwischenzeit entwendet der Opa von Frédéric ihre Kleider. Daher müssen beide nackt zurück ins Dorf laufen. Frédéric ist darüber so erbost, dass er vorgibt, sich vom Dach zu stürzen. In Wirklichkeit wollte er nur die Erwachsenen ärgern.
Das gemeinsame Nacktbad kommt vor allem beim Vater von Rose überhaupt nicht gut an. Und so entschließt sich dieser, Rose in eine reine Mädchenschule zu bringen, die von Nonnen geleitet wird. In dieser Schule sind Besuche strengstens untersagt. Nur nach dem Sportunterricht gelingt es Frédéric an Rose heranzukommen. Die Umkleideräume liegen in einem Flachdachbau. Durch eine Dachluke kann er mit Rose sprechen, während diese gerade am Duschen ist. Sie vereinbaren, sich zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt zu treffen.

 DE. Nun sind endlich die Sommerferien herangekommen. Marco (Tobias Blume) und Tobi (René Hahn) haben vorab viele Pläne geschmiedet, die aus ihrer Sicht geeignet sind, die gesamten acht Wochen Ferien entsprechend abwechslungsreich und unter Jungs zu gestalten. Dann aber kommt die “schlechte” Nachricht: Marco soll für eine Zeit in ein Ferienlager ins Erzgebirge fahren. Was ist nun mit den schönen Vorhaben der beiden?
Um in dieser Hinsicht nicht alles über Bord werfen zu müssen und gemeinsame Abenteuer erleben zu können, überredet Marco seinen Freund, ihn mit Pferd und Wagen von zu Hause bis zum Ferienlager zu begleiten - das Ganze natürlich auf Umwegen, versteht sich!

Alles verläuft dann aber nicht ganz ohne kleine “Wehehchen” , so dass sie ziemlich lädiert im Ferienlager eintreffen.

Left to their own devices, the two children learn to cope with hunger, the cold, and the everyday cruelty in a devastated country.

Když se slunci nedaří / When the Chips Are Down. 1995. Episode 6.

Když se slunci nedaří / When the Chips Are Down. 1995. Episode 6.
 Když se slunci nedaří je český šestidílný televizní seriál z roku 1995, natočený režisérem Hynkem Bočanem podle scénáře Iva Pelanta.
Šestidílný seriál Když se slunci nedaří se odehrává převážně v nemocnici, jejímiž pacienty jsou děti nejrůznějšího stáří. Autoři seriálu, Eva a Ivo Pelantovi, se záměrně vyhnuli těžkým a beznadějným případům a jejich nemocnici většinou opouštějí uzdravené děti. Přesto se diváci seriálu i v jejich pohodové nemocnici setkají s onemocněními vážnými, v současné dětské populaci relativně častými, jejichž léčení klade na pacienty, ale také na jejich rodiče nemalé nároky. V každém případě je seriálová nemocnice místem důvěry v uzdravení, zejména díky vedoucí lékařce dětského oddělení, doktorce Šnajberkové. Představuje typ lékaře, s nímž bychom se v době onemocnění rádi potkali.
Episode 6. Šnajberková.
V závěru seriálu se budeme věnovat soukromí lékařky a jejích nejbližších. Dcera Markéta se chystá do tanečních a matka objeví podezřelou pihu na jejím břiše. Od chvíle, kdy Markétě pihu odoperují, čeká doktorka Šnajberková na histologický nález a prožívá úzkostné období. Současně také přijímá novou malou pacientku, která si stěžuje na bolesti bříška. Ačkoli jsou všechna vyšetření negativní, Kristýně se z nemocnice nechce. Doktorka Šnajberková však brzy přijde na to, čeho se malá pacientka bojí a jak s tím souvisí krásná panenka Barbie.
Director: Hynek Bočan.

Představuje typ lékaře, s nímž bychom se v době onemocnění rádi potkali.

The Strange Affair. 1968.

The Strange Affair. 1968.
 The Strange Affair is a 1968 British crime film directed by David Greene and starring Michael York, Jeremy Kemp and Susan George.
Peter Strange (Michael York) is an idealistic young police recruit who gets mixed up with the machinations of the tough and jaded Scotland Yard Detective Sergeant Pierce (Jeremy Kemp). Pierce is trying to arrest a gang for drug smuggling and later murder, but is thwarted respectively by a corrupt colleague and an unconvicing witness. Strange is shocked by finding the dead body of a murdered informant he knew and is himself brutally assaulted. Meanwhile, Strange is having an affair with Frederika (Susan George), a minor who he does not know is part of a pornography ring; her supposed aunt and uncle film and photograph her sexual encounters from behind a one-way mirror. (Susan George was 17 at the time the film was shot.)
Pierce obtains copies of photographs of Strange's sexual encounter with Frederika and threatens to expose him to his superiors, ending his career, unless Strange plants some heroin on one of the gang. Strange reluctantly agrees, despite planning to leave the force anyway, as he is disillusioned by the failure to catch and convict the drugs gang. Pierce's planting of evidence is revealed and he is convicted of perverting the course of justice and jailed.
Director: David Greene.
Cast: Michael York, Jeremy Kemp, George A. Cooper, George Selway, Artro Morris, Richard Pearson, Susan George, Madge Ryan, Jack Watson, Richard Vanstone.

Le viol d'une jeune fille douce / The Rape of a Sweet Young Girl / In Trouble. 1968.

Le viol d'une jeune fille douce / The Rape of a Sweet Young Girl / In Trouble. 1968.
 FR. Le Viol d'une jeune fille douce est un film québécois réalisé par Gilles Carle, sorti en 1968. Il met en vedette Julie Lachapelle, Katerine Mousseau et Donald et Daniel Pilon. Produit par Onyx Films, il fut réalisé clandestinement les fins de semaines à l'insu des propriétaires de la société de production, André et Pierre Lamy.
Julie (Julie Lachapelle) est une jeune adulte, artiste-dessinatrice, vivant à Montréal. Avec son ami Tancrède (Jacques Chenail), Julie s'ennuie et trouve qu'il ne lui arrive jamais rien. En visite chez le docteur (Claude Jutra), elle apprend qu'elle est maintenant enceinte. Elle organise une rencontre avec une avorteuse, mais se désiste à la dernière seconde.
Durant sa grossesse, on suit Julie dans son quotidien variant les amants et les amis. Il y a Katerine (Katherine Mousseau), son amie et colocataire, qui la quitte pour son nouvel amant et qui finira par revenir lorsque sa relation se termine. Jacques (Jacques Cohen), son amoureux marocain, qui lui aussi finit par l’abandonner. Ses frères, Gabriel (Donald Pilon), Raphaël (Daniel Pilon) et Joachim (André Gagnon) viendront alors à sa rescousse. Ayant comme objectif de faire tabula rasa des idéaux artistiques de Julie, ils détruisent les objets excentriques de son appartement pour mettre fin à sa vie d’artiste. Ils veulent retrouver le père de l'enfant et lui donner une leçon. Julie, qui ne sait pas qui est le père, forcée à parler par ses frères, improvise : il est français et il conduit une Jaguar bleue. Les Lachapelle Brother, au volant de leur Camaro décapotable, parcourent les routes du Québec à la recherche de ce père supposé, sous le regard indifférent, à peine inquiet de Julie. Sur la route, ils embarquent Marie, une auto-stoppeuse peu bavarde que les frères Lachapelle violeront dans un champ en bordure de route, avant de continuer leur chemin. Arrivés chez le supposé père, Joachim, Gabriel et Raphaël le passent à tabac, sans même expliquer leurs actes.
De retour à Montréal, l'enfant de Julie, nommé Xanthippe, a maintenant deux mois. Elle considère l'option de donner son bébé en adoption, mais encore une fois se désiste après quelques rencontres de parents candidats et se résout à l’élever elle-même, avec son ami Tancrède dans un nouvel appartement qu’elle décore à son goût.
EN. Julie is an 18-year old technical designer living in Montreal. Liberal and carefree, one day she finds herself pregnant as a result of her sexual promiscuity and is unsure who the father is. She meets and falls in love with a Moroccan-born man recently immigrated and moves in with him. She decides upon the course of an illegal abortion but her lover steals the money she saved for it and disappears. Her three brothers, Raphael, Gabriel, and Joachim arrive from the country and seeing her pregnant and not married, they decide that she has been raped and vow to punish the man responsible to reclaim the honor of their family. Julie accompanies them on their mission and watches as her brothers beat up the wrong man and then inexplicably rape a random young girl themselves. Julie is left alone and must decide whether to keep her baby, abandon it, or give it up for adoption.

La guerra de papá / Daddy's War. 1977.

La guerra de papá / Daddy's War. 1977.
 ES. La guerra de papá es una película española dirigida por Antonio Mercero basada en la novela de Miguel Delibes El príncipe destronado.1​ A pesar del gran éxito obtenido en su estreno por el público, es una obra bastante desconocida en aquellos años al ser categorizada por la prensa como film blanco.​ El interés por toda la actualidad sobre la Transición española, silenció cualquier obra que estuviera al margen de conflictos políticos.
El protagonista es un niño de facciones angelicales interpretado por Lolo García, que hace constantes travesuras en un intento de llamar la atención a sus padres, ya que siente celos de su hermana más pequeña.
Como se estilaba en los años 70 en España se dobló todo el sonido, lo cual produce una desincronización entre los labios de los actores y la voz.
EN. Based on a novel by one of the greater Spanish writers of the XX century (Miguel Delibes), "La Guerra de Papá" (Dad's War)
Spain, March 1964: Quico is a very naughty child of three belonging to a wealthy middle-class family. Since Cristina's birth, he feels he has lost the privileged position of "prince" of the house for his eight months old sister. So, with his brother Juan, who is eight years old and is quite disobedient, spend their time committing prank after prank, causing the resulting anger of his mother, the nanny and the old housemaid. The rest of the family members are two much older brothers, his resigned mother and a retrograde father of authoritarian ideas. But many years have passed, and the civil war that won the despot Don Pablo is simply for their children "Dad's war".
Director: Antonio Mercero.
