Helden wie wir / Heroes Like Us. 1999.

Heroes Like Us presents as heroes ordinary teenagers and young East German adults, who in Thomas Brussig's (the novel and screenplay author) story, caused the Fall of the Berlin Wall. Our young hero falls in love, from an early age, with a girl whose family is not in good standing with the ruling Communist party. Our hero's father, however, is a member of the "Stasi", the secret state police. The father not only hinders his son's relationship with the girl, but he arranges for his son, after finishing school, to become a Stasi spy himself. The absurdities of everyday life in the former German "Democratic" Republic are comically (sometimes tragically) are exposed throughout the film.

L'année du certif. 1996.

FR. Un roman vivant et chaleureux comme la mémoire collective
Les Cévennes, dans la France des années trente. C'est la grande époque du certificat d'études. Les écoles, les villages même s'affrontent, par l'intermédiaire de eurs champions, pour le prix cantonal. Chaque instituteur se doit d'avoir au moins une fois dans sa carrière le premier du canton...
dès l'été, commence l'année terrible. paul Fontanes, l'instituteur de Saint-André-la-Vallée prépare son fils Antoine ; Mlle Rachel, de Saint-Pierre-du-Mont, lance dans la bataille la tendre et folle Pascaline.
Pendant que les jeunes candidats connaissent leurs premiers émois amoureux et se passionnent pour les romances à deux sous, les espoirs et désespoirs des instituteurs viennent fausser la règle du jeu. Alors, entre adultes et enfants, se noue un drame qui ne connaîtra son épiogue que douze ans plus tard...
L'Année du certif a été adapté pour la télévision en 1996 par Jacques Renard.
EN. This certificate was formerly obtained by pupils at the end of primary school. It disappeared and in the naughties is nothing but a memory for older people, retired or soon-to-be-retired. I thought myself of taking it, but the principal told my mother it was useless.
The teacher of a small village has a dream: he wants his son to get his certificate and to be the best in the district ("Canton"). His younger son is less gifted: he is ashamed of him and treats him like a dunce. His obsession is so strong his marriage (his wife is a schoolteacher too) is soon on the rocks. Enter a handsome teacher and this is no more the perfect family.
The day of the exam is particularly well directed, with the inspector of schools and the inhabitants talking arithmetic and spelling. When the results are announced, there will be some surprises. And even an unexpected twist, ten years later. This is an above average MTV work.

Горещо пладне / Goreshto pladne. 1965.

On a hot summer day three boys are splashing around the river. One of them gets his hand caught in the stone masonry of a railway bridge. Many peasants, the passengers from the train, which stops nearby, and the crews of tanks taking part in a military exercise flock to the scene of accident. People drop out whatever they are doing; even the maneuvers get stopped to come to the help of a child. Action must be taken quickly because the water level is rising fast. The concerted efforts of all involved people help save the child. Thus a particular case, an extreme situation has served as a test of significant and insignificant in our life, which often happens to become transposed.

Miss Violence. 2013.

It's Angeliki's 11th birthday celebration, and a well-organised party is held in her honour. Everything is in order, and all the ingredients of a usual birthday party are there. A nice fest, a big cake, music, dance, a caring grandfather's embrace... a truly loving family environment. But is it real, or is this an elaborate facade? As we witness a devastating act of despair, we understand that something lies underneath. The story advances, and we slowly get lured into a web of hideous secrets, while gradually getting ourselves dragged into a downward spiral of lies and deceptive appearances. When we unwillingly unravel the mysteries kept behind closed doors, in reality, we plunge into the depths of the human soul and the unfathomable secrets within.
Director: Alexandros Avranas.
Cast: Themis Panou, Reni Pittaki, Eleni Roussinou, Sissy Toumasi, Kalliopi Zontanou, Constantinos Athanasiades, Giorgos Gerontidakis-Sempetadelis, Maria Skoula, Chloe Bolota, Maria Kallimani, Anna Koutsaftiki, Stefanos Kosmidis.

Løperjenten / Kamilla / Betrayal. 1981

NO. En familie i oppløsning, sett gjennom datterens øyne.
Familien er Vibeke Løkkebergs tema. I filmene blir vi kjent med familier som kjemper, ofte mot seg selv. Løkkeberg lar kameraet gli ned til de uskyldige og svakeste i konfliktene, barna. Løperjenten er en slik film.
Lille Kamilla bor i etterkrigstidens Bergen. Hennes far, Sverre Konradsen (Helge Jordal), er en konkurs fabrikkeier som vil til Amerika for å starte på ny. Med seg på planene får han Siri, en ung kvinne som overtar både arbeid og sengeplass, mens kona Lisa (Løkkeberg) blir overlatt til den finere kjøpmannen Nilsen. Han er også interessert i pengene Sverre tjente under krige
Dette er en hjerteskjærende, vakker og rystende skildring av etterkrigstidens Bergen, sett gjennom lille Kamillas øyne, laget av en av Norges mest særegne regissører. Filmen ble i 1995 satt på UNESCOs liste over Norges 15 mest betydningsfulle filmer.

2. Kamilla was originally released in Sweden in 1981, then made the specialty-house rounds in the US four years later. Nina Knapskog is astonishingly perceptive as the 7-year-old daughter of bitterly battling parents. Seeking an escape from the vitriol, Nina develops of friendship with a lonely little boy. Together the kids form a united front against the nastiness and callousness of the rest of the world. Echoes of the earlier child's eye view foreign classic Forbidden Games are inescapable, but the sheer virtuosity of Kamilla enables it to stand on its own lofty merits.
Director: Vibeke Løkkeberg.

Den pro mou lásku / Day for My Love. 1976.

Režisér Juraj Herz tentokrát překvapil citově působivým příběhem o manželské dvojici, která se musí vyrovnat s tragickou událostí, které ničivě zasáhla do jejího soužití. Režiséru se podařilo i v časech vypjaté normalizace vyprávění zbavit jakýchkoli politických odkazů, hrdinové si žijí jakoby navzdory době, uzavírajíce se do svého soukromí, do svých radostí i strastí... Všimneme si téměř karnevalového veselí, když i s kamarády podnikají bezmála happeningové akce, smyslem pro nenápadné postižení všední tváře velkoměsta (podíl kameramana Jiřího Macháně na lyrizaci obrazu je nesporný). Režisér nikde nepodlehl svodům melodramatu, příběh líčí střízlivě i emočně vypjaté scény. Film upoutal na svou dobu odvážnou, byť něžně natočenou milostnou scénou.

Rakuyôju / Tree without leaves. 1986.

The story is simple. A boy has a mother who is dedicated to him in every way, emotionally engaged and prepared for extreme sacrifice for the smallest pleasure for him. On the other side is a father so stern he makes Bergman's Scandinavian Lutherans seem mild. The mother dies when the boy is 11; all the siblings have fled and the boy at the end is stuck with his father, penniless. The thing is framed as the book the boy writes, now old and missing key parts of his soul. Lots of snow. Lots of lonely stares that contrast with the wide eyes of the boy, selfish and demanding.
It works. It works because its gentle, a gentle knife that wounds. In the west, you'd have Nick Nolte shouting. Beatings. Dark drama and loud. Here, the routineness of how bleakness seeps is much more disturbing. Everything is beautiful.
The anchor scene. There's usually one in such compositions, and here it is obvious because it is recalled a dozen times and repeated about half that. The boy and his sister are in the field playing. Tossing sandals in the air and pretending they are bats. We see the bats in their imagination as they attempt to catch them, which of course they are, continuing to keep them flying. The saintlike mother calls them for supper, which we know was painstakingly and perfectly prepared.
The children ignore her, playing with their imaginary hauntings in fun because they know they can control them. It builds and builds in resonance each occurrence, obviously the center of the movie the adult plays over and over in his head...

The film exposes the atrocities of war through the eyes of two children who are stranded in the DMZ after the end of the Korean War. The DMZ, strewn with abandoned tanks, dead bodies, land mines, and unexploded shells, is an exceedingly dangerous place for children. But what most endangers them in the end are not weapons but people.
'Demilitarized Zone' is not unlike the Japanese 'Grave of the Fireflies,' but instead of being based in a post-nuclear bomb attack in Hiroshima it is based in the split Koreas.

To dendro pou pligoname / The Tree We Hurt. 1986.

GR: Καλοκαίρι 1960, σ' ένα γραφικό χωριό της Χίου, τελευταίες μέρες του σχολικού έτους. Η φιλία δυο αγοριών της Δ’ τάξης του Δημοτικού κλονίζεται. Το σχολείο κλείνει και τα δυο παιδιά περνούν ένα μεγάλο μέρος του καλοκαιριού χωριστά. Ο ένας βοηθάει τη μητέρα του στα μαστιχόδεντρα, τα δέντρα που πληγώνονται και δακρύζουν την αστραφτερή τους μαστίχα. Ο άλλος, ακολουθεί τον δικό του, μοναχικό δρόμο και προσπαθεί να ξεφύγει από τη δική του αυταρχική μάνα, που συνηθίζει να τον κυνηγά με τον πλάστη στα σοκάκια του χωριού. Μια τυχαία συνάντησή τους κατά τη διάρκεια μιας τέτοιας καταδίωξης γίνεται αφορμή να επανασυνδεθούν και να περάσουν μαζί το υπόλοιπο καλοκαίρι.
EN: It's summer 1960, in the picturesque Greek town of Chios, where people get around by donkey. School is ending, and a present-day narrator is calling up memories of the idyllic weeks he spent between fourth and fifth grades. They compose ''The Tree We Hurt,'' an unassuming Greek movie that opens today at the Public Theater.
In the course of this brief holiday scrapbook, the boy assists his mother in cutting the bark of the gum tree -''the tree we hurt'' - so the gum may drip out like tears or jewels. He frolics with a stray dog, joins in anouting on the beach, frees some trapped birds and is shot at by the bird catcher. He develops a crush on a pretty girl visitor. He and his best friend, Runny-Nose Vangelis, also known as the Cat Strangler, participate in funeral processions to earn a few coins. They splash in a tiny pool, eat ice cream and smoke a cigarette. With some other kids, they make war on wasps and pick on the local lunatic.

Die Kinder vom Friedrichshof / Child of the Commune. 2009.

The commune of Otto Muehl, the acclaimed Vienna Actionist, was one of the most controversial artistic and social experiments of the Seventies. In the countryside, on the compounds of the Friedrichshof, mutual sexuality, common property, the connection of happening and body art as well as the consistent removal of any permanent relationships should serve as the ideal foundation for this project. The most ambitious aim of this Austrian commune was Muhls third generation project/Child production which aimed to create a completely new human being. Twenty years later, in summer of 1991, Muhl was arrested for child abuse and the community dissolved. The company's experiment was a dramatic failure. Through the eyes of these children, the film looks back at the community and examines what has become of the children of this utopia.

Gyerekgyilkossagok / Child Murders. 1993.

In this black and white melodrama about children, the child murders that the film's title refers to are the million and one ways that children's souls are ravaged by neglect, unkindness and cruelty, even though several physical deaths take place in the story. Zsolt (Barnabбs Tуth) lives a lonely life with his grandmother, having been left in her care by his mother so that she could leave the country. He spends so much time taking care of his grandmother (rather than the contrary) that he has little time for much else. However, he makes friends with Juli (Mбria Balogh) a homeless young gypsy woman living in an abandoned railway car. This friendship becomes known to the other children in his circle, and results in his being actively ridiculed, ostracized and beaten. When Juli has a miscarriage and Zsolt helps her dispose of the baby's corpse, they are seen by one of the hate-filled local children, who notifies the police. The gypsy girl is taken to a prison hospital, where she hangs herself. Zsolt quietly takes his revenge on the informant. His life takes a turn for the better when his grandmother is hospitalized and he comes to the attention of a kindly policeman.
