FR. Mérette est un téléfilm suisse réalisé par Jean-Jacques Lagrange, sur un scénario de Jean-Louis Roncoroni d'après un récit de Gottfried Keller, diffusé en 1982.
Mérette est l'histoire d'une jeune fille révoltée, au XIXe siècle, qui en veut à Dieu de lui avoir repris sa mère. Elle refuse l'éducation très protestante que son père tente de lui imposer en la plaçant auprès du pasteur Magnoux, dans la campagne vaudoise. Oppressée par ces règles religieuses, Mérette trouve refuge dans son imaginaire et dans la douceur de la nature. Mais la société des adultes est intransigeante…
Mérette a reçu le prix du Festival du Film d'Auteur de San Remo 1982 ainsi que le prix Louis-Philippe Kammans des télévisions francophones.
EN. Mérette is a pretty child, living within a patrician, strictly Calvinist family in the Switzerland of the 19th century.

Anna. 2009. HD.

Anna. 2009. HD.
 Anna is a 12-year-old girl, living in a small fishing village. She is at a crossroad in her life. Her surroundings are changing - and so is she.
The story is so simple and the cinematography is so beautiful, the feel to see watercolors portraits so powerful than the only reasonable thing to say about "Anna" is to see it again. Picture of a girl. And her near reality. All exposed in the most admirable delicate manner. A film about truth. And frustrations. And solitude. And about love. And the magnificent performance of Marie Hammer Boda.
Director: Rúnar Rúnarsson.
Cast: Marie Hammer Boda, Daniel Stampe, Petrine Agger, Kristianna Nordoy, Leonora Nielsen, Henrik Noel Olesen.

Naerata ometi / Igry dlya detey shkolnogo vozrasta / Well, Come On, Smile. 1985.
EE. Mari ema on surnud ja isa joob. Elu lastekodus tundub talle võimatu, kuid minna pole kuhugi. Tal tuleb harjuda elama kodusoojuseta, jõhkravõitu kaaskasvandike seas. Õnneks on seal Tauri, kes käitub hästi, kuid keda miskipärast eriti ei armastata. Robi, kes rikub reegleid, on seevastu kõigi lemmik, kuigi Mari meelest peaks teda vihkama. Õppetund sellest, kuidas näha enda ümber teisi inimesi ja kuidas näha nende välise koore alla, on tütarlapsele peaaegu talumatu, kuid sellest sõltub tema saatus.
EN. Games for Schoolchildren or Well, Come On, Smile; (Estonian: Naerata ometi) is a 1985 Soviet Estonian drama film directed by Arvo Iho and Leida Laius.
1. After the death of her mother, high school student Mari ends up in an orphanage. Three days later, the girl returns home, but her drunken father makes it clear almost from the door that she doesn't belong here.
The night spent at the train station ends for Mari with an acquaintance with an aggressive group of teenagers, led by Robi, and being driven to the police. In the morning, the fugitive leaves the cell: the orphanage teacher came for her.
The orphanage has its own internal hierarchy. The dashing guy Robi is considered the informal leader. The guys obey him and readily obey. The polite, intelligent Tauri, who, unlike the other pupils, has a respectable and very busy father, takes custody of the newcomer. Among the girls, the harsh, nervous Katrin, who ended up in an orphanage after her mother was imprisoned, dominates.
2. Teenage Mari is sent to an orphanage. It's an awful and unfriendly place to be. But soon two rival leading boys both show up their interest against the girl. Which one should she fall in love with, the good or the bad one ? Unbelivable realistic picture of an orphanage-life in Soviet Union is given.
Directors: Leida Laius, Arvo Iho.

רובה חוליות / Roveh Huliot / The Wooden Gun. 1979.

רובה חוליות / Roveh Huliot / The Wooden Gun. 1979.

 The Wooden Gun takes place in Tel Aviv in the early 1950s. In a clear-eyed fashion that would have been impossible in a film made by "outsiders", the plot details the conflict between native-born Israelis and the newly arrived European refugees. The various fears and prejudices of the adults are passed along to their children, upon whom director Hans Moshenson concentrates. Largely comprised of non professionals, the teen-aged protagonists and antagonists are remarkable in their sincerity and conviction. Filmed in Hebrew, The Wooden Gun is available in an English-subtitled version.
Director: Ilan Moshenson.
Cast: Nadav Brenner, Nissim Eliaz, Michael Kafir, Arik Rosen, Louis Rosenberg, Ophelia Shtruhl, Judith Solé, Leon Young.

X. 1986. FULL-HD.
NO. Den unge Jon Gabriel er fotokunstner. Dyktig på sitt område, men hjemløs i omgang med mennesker. Som type, attraktiv nok, men egentlig redd og uten tilhørighet i verden. 13-årige Flora er i mer konkret forstand hjemløs, men nærværende og tilstede i sin kamp for å klare seg. Hun er et barn med en livserfaring alt for stor for hennes unge alder, med en ytre tøffhet og direkthet som står i kontrast til hennes spinkle skikkelse. Slik finner vår fotokunstner seg målbundet i mer enn en forstand når den lille fuglungen av et gatebarn setter sitt blikk på ham og spør om han har et sted å bo. Hun slipper inn til ham, og på sin sære måte gir han henne nærhet. Ikke med ord og væremåter - men med en plakat. Hun vil ikke hete Flora - men Kim. "Kim" skriver han ned med store letrabokstaver på en pappbit - og hun er fortapt i ham.
