Jhing Chik Jhing. 2009.

The film is set around the problem of agrarian debt and farmer suicides in Maharashtra. Mouli (Bharat Jadhav), a farmer who ekes out a living on a 2 acre farm is trying his best to support his family. He is in debt to the tune of Rs. 10,000 to the local money lender (Uday Sabnis). Mouli's wife Manda (Madhavi Juvekar) tries her best to sustain the family on the little that they have. Mouli and Manda's children Shyam (Chinmay Kambli) and Dipti (Aarti More) go to the local school - and both are bright children who have a lot to look forward to. Shyam wants to become 'someone' and Dipti has her first crush ! When it seems that all is lost - including the land - and suicide is the only option - Shyam decides that he is not going to die and tries his best to save the family. What he does and the alternative to suicide and debt free farming (the word used in the film is swawalambhi) is the crux of the film.

Fourteen-year-old Siddharta lives in Rome with his mother, Silvia - an affectionate, rambling, though shifty woman. She does not work. She lives by her wits, her friendships, her relationships. She's separated from Siddharta's father, Massimo, who does his best to help them. With Roberto she has a five-year-old daughter, Domitilla, who lives with her own father, from whom Silvia is also estranged. The two siblings love each other very much. Domitilla moves in for the Christmas holidays, and, one day while rummaging among her mother's trousse, gets hurt by a syringe. Emotional turmoil ensues. Siddharta has to live on in spite of his parents' mis-doings. He sends Domitilla to do HIV, HBV and HCV tests without their parents' knowledge. Hence, he has to use his own name.

Hounddog. 2007.

«Gotta always somehow make good outta what can poison you.»
Hounddog is a 2007 coming-of-age drama film written, directed, and produced by Deborah Kampmeier and starring Dakota Fanning, Isabelle Fuhrman, Robin Wright Penn, and Piper Laurie, among others. It is also Isabelle Fuhrman's debut film. Penn also serves as an executive producer. The film was produced by Raye Dowell, Jen Gatien, and Terry Leonard. It premiered in competition at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, and was given a limited release in 11 North American theaters on September 19, 2008.
Shot near Wilmington, North Carolina and taking place in the late 1950s rural Alabama, the film stars Fanning as Lewellen, "a troubled 12-year-old girl who finds solace from an abusive life through music of Elvis Presley."
The film was panned by critics, due in part to a controversial scene in which Fanning's character is raped. The film was also a box office failure, grossing only $131,961, against an estimated $3.75 million production budget.
A drama set in the American South, where a precocious, troubled girl finds a safe haven in the music and movement of Elvis Presley.

Zlatí úhoři / Golden Eels. 1979.

CZ. Karel Kachyňa, jeden z velkých českých režisérů, vytvořil mnoho mimořádně působivých filmů nejen pro plátna, ale i pro obrazovku.

K vrcholům televizní dramatické tvorby bezesporu patří jeho film Zlatí úhoři, inspirovaný povídkami Oty Pavla, o malém chlapci, který spolu s tatínkem podléhá kouzlu řeky Berounky, ale zároveň také prožívá krutou válečnou realitu. "Zlatí úhoři" získali v roce 1979 hlavní cenu na mezinárodním festivalu Prix Italia.

Kunsten at græde i kor / The Art of Crying. 2006.

Follows a precocious, eleven-year-old Allan, who tries desperately to keep his dysfunctional, rural family together during the social upheavals of the early seventies. Allan reveres his father, Henry, the local milkman, and can't understand why others don't feel the same way. His family life is so twisted he thinks it's perfectly normal to stay awake all night dealing with his father's hysterics and suicidal threats. Allan's older brother left town several years ago, and his mother gave up long before that, relying on sleeping pills to escape Henry's tantrums. Allan then becomes obsessed with a rival family, whom he considers foolish white trash until they start taking away Henry's customers. He is frustrated that his mother doesn't take his father's complaints seriously, and is perplexed by the increasingly rebellious and bizarre behavior of his sister, Sanne. Incapable of understanding what's going on and heavily influenced by his father, Allan commits appalling acts...

Piera's story is that of a young girl whose sexual awakening is not only tolerated but actively encouraged by her parents, with whom she seems to have some kind of an incestuous relationship. The disturbing subject matter is not what is wrong with this film, though. This is a film with loose scenes, no discernible plot, secondary characters that appear and disappear at random, nonsensical dialogue... Hey, if you want to challenge our morals by showing mother and daughter kissing naked on the beach that's fine, but try to do it in a way that is watchable.

NO. Det er noen voksne som ikke tror man kan bli forelsket når man bare går i femte klasse. Men det kan man. Jørgen + Anne = sant fikk femmere av et samlet norsk kritikerkorps, og er en varm barnefilm for hele familien.
Ti år gamle Anne Lunde har aldri brydd seg om forelskelse. Inntil hun møter den nye gutten i klassen, Jørgen Ruge. I tillegg har han flyttet inn i det forlatte og mystiske Helgahuset. Et hus som rommer mange hemmeligheter og et rykte om at Helga ble murt inn i veggen av sin egen far fordi hun gjorde alt, og mye hun ikke burde, for kjærligheten. Fra å være mest opptatt av ryktene om Helgahuset, ser Anne plutselig historien med nye øyne. For når Anne selv har vært mest opptatt av å slå guttene i håndbak eller løpe fra dem, tilspisses situasjonen når skolens peneste jente også forelsker seg i Jørgen Ruge. Og i motsetning til Anne har Ellen verdens lengste, vakreste hestehale, alltid pene, rene klær og jobb som skuespiller i en reklamefilm på TV. Kjærester siden barnehagen har hun også hatt. Men Anne har bestemt seg. Oddsene er kanskje ikke på hennes side, men Jørgen Ruge skal bli hennes kjæreste, ikke Ellens.

Alamar / To The Sea. 2009.

ES. Con sólo cinco años, el pequeño Natan siente que este viaje con su papá Jorge no es un viaje más, sino el capítulo previo a abandonar la tierra mexicana –paterna– rumbo a la de los orígenes de su mamá –italiana–. Sin embargo, la ruptura familiar del pasado, lejos de convertirse en un nudo traumático, abre una nueva perspectiva para padre e hijo en su trayecto hacia el arrecife de coral de Banco Chinchorro, donde el vínculo entre ellos crece al ritmo del contacto con la naturaleza. Bucear en Alamar, junto a los personajes, nos permite expandir todo un mundo de experiencias que se transmiten o se dejan incorporar; como si esta sorprendente –extática, lírica, oceánica– película de González Rubio siempre tuviera nuevos secretos escondidos para revelarnos, y para hallarlos debiese nadar entre el documental y la ficción. Sin la necesidad de perseguir grandes ballenas imposibles, Alamar prueba que los milagros (cinematográficos) existen.
EN. Alamar (To the Sea) is a 2009 Spanish-language documentary-style film about a boy visiting his father on the Banco Chinchorro. It is by Pedro González-Rubio. Alamar won best picture and the audience award at the seventh Morelia International Film Festival.
A young boy and his father learn about living in harmony with nature in this languid drama from filmmaker Pedro Gonzalez-Rubio. A man from Mexico (Jorge Machado) travels to Italy and falls in love with a beautiful local woman (Roberta Palombini). Their feelings for one another are strong, but they prove to be short lived, and when they decide to beak up after the birth of their son Natan, he returns to Mexico while she stays in Italy and takes primary custody of the child. However, the father strives to remain a presence in his son's life, and the boy visits his father at least once a year. As the five-year-old Natan travels to Mexico, his father has joined the family' fishing operation near the coral reefs of Banco Chinchorro. Living in an elevated cottage near the shore, Natan and his family devote their summer to an idyllic existence, spending their days catching the plentiful fish and observing the wildlife, and their nights sitting by the fire and admiring the stars. To the father, this simple life teaches an important lesson of existing in peace with the natural world, and Natan comes to see himself as being as much a part of this environment as the fish, the waterfowl and the seaweed. Alamar (aka To The Sea) was the first solo directorial credit for cinematographer Pedro Gonzalez-Rubio.

Como Desenhar um Círculo Perfeito / How to Draw a Perfect Circle. 2009.

PT. Cinco anos depois de "Alice", Marco Martins regressa com uma história dramática sobre as primeiras descobertas da adolescência e sobre um isolamento que conduz ao amor incestuoso entre dois irmãos.
Numa sombria e decadente mansão, no centro da cidade de Lisboa, vivem os gémeos Guilherme e Sofia (Rafael Morais e Joana de Verona), de 16 anos, e Leonor (Beatriz Batarda), uma mãe ausente, que delega nos dois filhos a responsabilidade de cuidarem da casa e de si próprios. Os dois cresceram habituados a depender apenas dos afetos um do outro e, de mãos dadas, vão despertar para a vida, para o amor e para a sexualidade. Sofia desde pequena prometeu a sua virgindade a Guilherme e essa será a obsessão do rapaz até ao dia em que ela decide cumprir com o prometido...
EN. In a house, the last trace of a Lisbon that has long disappeared, Guilherme and Sofia grow up sharing experiences and slowly discovering their sexuality. Guilherme, sheltered in a female universe, unable to deal with the uncorresponded love of his sister and her relationships with other boys, ends up running away. After the death of his grandmother Clara, Guilherme refugees himself in his father's house, who is immersed in a almost autistic world, which leaves him increasingly isolated. Guilherme discovers that life can not be held in a perfect circle and returns home. When the twins finally meet, they rediscover the sexual tension that surrounded them since the beginning, and love finally takes shape. "How To Draw a Perfect Circle" is intimate and silent in style, offering the pleasure of exploring the limits, creating a closed, claustrophobic universe, innocent and contagious in the simplicity of its emotions, where everyday situations become at times brutal, cruel, yet infused with a strangely perverse beauty.

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.

Kapitán Korda / Captain Korda. 1970.

V poetice dětského filmu lze řešit závažné problémy - třeba citovou rozervanost malého chlapce z dětského domova, jenž přilnul ke svým adoptivním rodičům, avšak po čase se ozvala jeho biologická matka... Příběh je samozřejmě hodně didaktický, uzpůsoben vnímání cílové divácké skupiny, takže mu odpustíme lecjaká zjednodušení, avšak vyhmátnutí ústředního sporu je přesné.
Director: Josef Pinkava.
Cast: Michal Vavruša, Vladimír Brabec, Milena Dvorská, Drahomíra Hofmanová, Jiří Vala, Václav Babka, Vlastislav Hudec, Jiří Sika, Roman Skřivánek, Jan Stibor, Ota Kadleček, Rudolf Vavřínek, Antonín Ženčák, Božena Böhmová .
