Vakáció a halott utcában. 1978.

Каникулы на пустынной улице / Vakáció a halott utcában. 1978.
Épül az új lakótelep, de mellette még ott vannak a régi kis házak. Lebontásra ítéltettek, lakóik már el is költöztek, de egy-egy ottmaradt tárgy, egy elfelejtett névtábla még emlékeztet a régi lakókra és foglalkozásukra. Az új házakba pedig már költöznek be a "boldog" új lakók. Illetve költöznének, mert a lakásokat nem lehet használni, éjszakánként újra eltűnnek a mosdók, a csapok, de még a WC-csészék is. Az új lakókkal érkeznek gyerekeik is, akik hamarosan felfedezik a régi, elhagyott házakat, s birtokba is veszik őket. Többek között egy volt magánnyomozó irodáját, s mi sem természetesebb, hogy nyomozni kezdenek. S a nyomoznivaló is adva van, hiszen a felnőttek még mindig tehetetlenek a mosdók, csaptelepek tolvajaival szemben. A film sok humorral ábrázolja a gyerekek kalandéhségét, s enyhe szarkazmussal a felnőttek időnkénti tehetetlenségét.

Never losing touch with each other. A game played by a mother and her child. A kind of tango. The sound of feet. Breathing. And faint smiles. Until suddenly the woman’s hands let go of each other.

TV-serien utspelade sig under ett helt år, från vår, sommar, höst till vinter, och olika barn agerar sidekickar i varje avsnitt. Tusen år till julafton tog sig an historien ur barnens perspektiv, med ämnen som kläder, boende, försörjning, matbrist och rädslan för svält och krig.
När uppfanns pruttkudden? Hur var det att äta sig mätt på inälvor? Och hur var det som barn att arbeta i gruva på 1500-talet eller att bo i kollektiv på 1970-talet?

Keby som mal pušku / If I Had a Gun. 1971.

Если бы у меня была пушка / Keby som mal pušku / If I Had a Gun. 1971.
 Film, ktorý vznikol podľa literárnej predlohy Milana Ferka rozpráva o vojnových časoch z pohľadu detských hrdinov a patrí v tomto smere spolu s filmom Stanislava Barabáša Pieseň o sivom holubovi medzi najlepšie filmy slovenskej kinematografie. Na pozadí udalostí na Slovensku medzi vypuknutím Slovenského národného povstania a oslobodením sledujeme osudy malých hrdinov s ich detskými starosťami i radosťami. Stávame sa svedkami ich objavovania okolitého sveta, sexuality, komentovania ľudí a udalostí a v neposlednom rade i túžby po dospelosti, ktorú v tomto prípade paradoxne predstavuje puška. Mozaikovité rozprávanie však okrem dychtivého poznávania mladých hrdinov sprevádzajú nestále stretnutia so smrťou alebo aspoň hrozba jej zjavenia. Film Keby som mal pušku patrí do Zlatého fondu Slovenskej kinematografie a zaslúžili sa o to okrem režiséra Štefana Uhra aj kameraman Stanislav Szomolányi, hudobný skladateľ Iľja Zeljenka, strihač Max Remeň a v neposlednom rade herecké obsadenie.

La guerra di Mario / Mario's War. 2005.


La guerra di Mario / Mario's War. 2005.
 A rebellious little boy has been taken away from his abusive mother and placed in the temporary care of a young couple. And while Mario is a singular child, commendably portrayed by the pugilistic Marco Grieco, what turns Antonio Capuano's Mario's War into a fine film is not just this penetrating performance but the sensitive depiction of the new world that envelops this young boy. This film gets to the heart of the restless struggle between an adult and a child who have to adapt to each other without the bond of a biological relationship. Giulia is a special woman who gratefully and bravely embraces her new foster son. As played by the wonderful Valeria Golino (recently seen in Respiro), we recognize her unbending strength and commitment to meeting this huge challenge. Not only does she have to grapple with every obstacle Mario throws at her, but she has to cope with the doubts and hesitation of Sandro (Andrea Renzi), the man she lives with and loves...

 NO. Det kan være lurt å forberede seg på puberteten når den kan komme hver dag som helst. Det mener ihertfall de to guttene i denne filmen. Å melde seg på kurs i synkronsvømming skulle vel gi en rimelig god sjanse for å treffe damer. Men vet gutta hva et slik møte kan utsette dem for-sånn rent følelsesmessig? Det blir litt sterkt for dem i denne sorgmuntre historien.

Sweet Movie. 1974.

Сладкий фильм / Sweet Movie. 1974.
 Sweet Movie is a 1974 avant-garde art house comedy-drama film written and directed by Yugoslavian director Dušan Makavejev.
An international co-production of companies from France, Canada, and West Germany, the film follows two women: a Canadian beauty queen, who represents a modern commodity culture, and a captain aboard a ship laden with candy and sugar, who is a failed communist revolutionary.
One narrative follows Miss Monde 1984/Miss Canada, who wins a contest of the "most virgin"; her prize is the marriage to a milk industry tycoon. However, following his degrading puritanical introduction to intercourse, she vents her intention to leave to her mother-in-law who, at that point, nearly has her killed. The family bodyguard takes her away, further humiliates her, and finally packs her in a trunk bound for Paris. She finds herself on the Eiffel Tower, where she absently meets and has intercourse with a Latin singer, El Macho. The sexual act is interrupted by touring nuns who frighten the lovers into penis captivus. In her post-coital shocked state, she is adopted into an artist community led by Otto Muehl, where she finds affectionate care. The commune practices some liberating sessions, where a member, with the assistance of the others, goes through a (re)birth experience, cries, urinates and defecates like a baby, while the others are cleaning and pampering him. Later she is seen acting for an obscene advertisement, in which she is naked, covered in liquid chocolate.
The second narrative involves a woman, Anna Planeta piloting a candy-filled boat in the canals of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, with a large papier-mache head of Karl Marx on the prow. She picks up the hitchhiking sailor Potemkin, though she warns him that if he falls in love, she will kill him. He ignores her many suggestions for him to leave and their relationship evolves. Eventually, in the state of love making, she stabs him to death in their nidus of sugar. She also seduces children into her world of sweets and revolution. She is eventually apprehended and arrested by the police who lay down plastic sacks containing the children's bodies on the side of the canal, implying they too have been killed by Planeta. The film ends with the children, unseen by the others, being reborn from their plastic cocoons.

 The summer of '58, the year Sweden almost won the world championship in soccer over Brazil, Yngve Johansson accepts two children to live with him during the summer, as told through the eyes of a young boy. His name is Mårten, and the other child's name is Annika. She is a rough girl, with many problems. The three of them do not get along, and Yngve is a true dictator to the children's eyes. However, when the children discover that their new guardian has a crush on their teacher (Cecilia Nilsson), they do what they can to bring the two together. Soon enough, the three will discover that they have a lot more in common than they previously imagined, and together they can make their lives worth living again. This is a sweet story about life in Sweden in the mid 1900's. It is about family, love, hate, innocent friendship that we all can relate to, and much, much more.

Bambule. 1970.

Бамбуле / Bambule. 1970.
DE. Bambule ist ein deutsches Fernsehspiel des Südwestfunks aus dem Jahr 1970; Regie führte Eberhard Itzenplitz, das Drehbuch stammt von Ulrike Meinhof.
Der Film kritisiert die autoritären Methoden der Heimerziehung (Fürsorgeerziehung) in einem Mädchenheim. Im Verlauf der Handlung kommt es zu einer Revolte der Heiminsassinnen gegen die unterdrückenden Strukturen. Die Handlung des Films wird oft auch als Parabel auf die gesellschaftlichen Zustände der Zeit verstanden, denen eine neue, verschärfte Form des Klassenkampfes entgegengesetzt werden müsse.
Die vielschichtige Handlung spielt über 24 Stunden in einem West-Berliner Mädchenheim für adoleszente Mädchen. Gleich zu Anfang flüchten zwei von ihnen. Monika wird wegen einer Fußverletzung sofort wieder eingefangen, Irene gelingt die Flucht im zweiten Anlauf. Während Monika zur Strafe im „Bunker“ (der Arrestzelle des Heims) sitzt, erzählt sie einer verständnisvollen und liberal eingestellten Erzieherin, Frau Lack, wie sie schon als kleines Kind von ihrer Stiefmutter ins Heim gesteckt und dort von Nonnen schikaniert wurde; besonders, nachdem diese ihre lesbischen Neigungen entdeckten. Die ebenfalls lesbische Irene wird zunächst von ihrer Mutter abgewiesen und kommt schließlich bei zwei ehemaligen Heiminsassinnen unter, die sich mittlerweile mit Prostitution über Wasser halten. Ein Treffen mit ihrer Freundin, einer Heiminsassin, die mittlerweile als „Freigängerin“ außerhalb des Heimes als Verkäuferin arbeitet, scheitert an einem Missverständnis. Ebenso scheitert der Versuch mit einer ehemaligen Heiminsassin. Deswegen kehrt auch Irene in das Heim zurück. Monika wurde unterdessen, gegen ihren Willen, zu den Klosterschwestern abgeschoben, schafft es aber durch Provokation, dass diese sie postwendend an das Heim zurückschicken. Die dritte Hauptfigur, Evelyn, zettelt in der folgenden Nacht einen Zellenaufstand („Bambule“) an, der zu einem Polizeieinsatz führt. Am Morgen sitzen Evelyn und Irene gemeinsam im Bunker und denken über weitere Möglichkeiten des Widerstandes gegen die Verhältnisse nach.
EN. The film criticizes the authoritarian methods of home education in a girls' home. In the course of the action, there is a revolt against the oppressive structures. The plot of the film is often understood as a parable to the social conditions of the time, to which a new, more acute form of class struggle must be opposed. The multi-layered plot plays for 24 hours in a West Berlin girls' home for adolescent girls.

 DE. Der Kinderfilm Blauvogel ist ein DEFA-Indianerfilm aus dem Jahr 1979. Er entstand nach dem gleichnamigen Roman von Anna Jürgen, von dem er aber inhaltlich stark abweicht. Alternativtitel ist Der blaue Vogel.
Die Familie Ruster kommt im Jahr 1755 in eine britische Kolonie in Nordamerika. Die Familie ist arm, und hätte in Knechtschaft in England leben müssen. Doch in Nordamerika können sie sich eine eigene Existenz als Farmer aufbauen. Zwar herrscht Krieg zwischen den Engländern und den Franzosen, doch davon lassen sich die Pioniere nicht abhalten. Der 9-jährige George ist begeistert, als ihm sein Vater den Reichtum der Natur zeigt. Am größten Baum auf dem Land, das sie gekauft haben, erklärt ihm sein Vater, dass sie nun im Paradies sind. Die Familie beginnt, die Bäume zu fällen, und das Land zu roden.
EN. In the middle of the 18th Century, the Ruster family immigrates to the United States. The father, a former farm laborer, leads a hard life as a settler along with his family. One day the nine year-old George, his second-youngest son, is kidnapped by Iroquois. He is taken in by an Indian family in the place of a deceased son and receives the name "Blue Bird." The boy has homesickness and difficulties accustoming to the customs of the Indians. But gradually he begins to feel at home with them, and advances to a full-fledged member of his new community. As the regular white settlers are attacked, he feels more associated with the Indians than with his former people. After the victory of the English over the French in 1763, all of the captured white settlers are to be exchanged for the captured Indians, including George/Blue Bird. He decides to remain with the Indians.
