Punťa a čtyřlístek. 1955.

I děti by měly mít rády zvířátka - tak jako kamarádi z tohoto filmu, kteří se vzorně starají o nalezeného pejska. Je jim líto, když se o něho přihlásí skutečná majitelka a zmatek ještě vnese ztracená psí známka. Svou výchovnou dikcí film nezastře, že vznikl v polovině 50. let - a nepomohla ani účast slavného režiséra Jiřího Weisse, jenž zde stěží mohl uplatnit svůj pověstný smysl pro drobnokresbu mezilidských vztahů.

Poil de Carotte / The Red Head. 1932, 1925.

The story itself is simple: a young boy is the odd one out. His parents are much older; his mother unmercifully picks on him, favoring his near-adult siblings, while his long-suffering father has withdrawn into the small pleasures of hunting and meeting with friends. Really, it's a sort of Cinderella: the wicked step-mother (only it's his real mother), the vain pampered older siblings, his having to work and slave for them, wearing tattered hand-me-downs. But it's told with a wonderful leisurely anecdotal naturalism, laced with delightful moments of surrealism (he's surrounded by double-exposure goblins when told to close up the hen house at night, for example). The greatest scene in the film combines the two, as the boy and a young girl "rehearse" a marriage ceremony, marching through the fields while the animals about them burst into song. The father, as delineated by Baur, and the maid, also immeasurably enriched by a subtle performance, are marvelous characters. The film was made during that brief period when the French countryside was a pre-technological world, yet technology was sufficiently advanced so that sound films could document that existence. Certainly there are "literary" story telling elements, such as the family being "introduced" by the father, the older maid telling the new maid what to expect, and the boy's school essay about his miserable family life. But the wonderful thing about the film is its ineffable technique and its enigmatic moments that are the purest styleless cinema. There are many visual joys, like the shot of boys playing leap-frog with the town spread out below them, that are presented with simplicity and unostentatious naturalism. All told, this is a film of the highest cinematic art, approaching the level of Renoir and Ozu. Adapted from various stories by Jules Renard, Poil de Carotte (The Red Head) is the poetically related tale of a delicate domestic situation. Robert Lynen plays the young son of Catherine Fourtenay. Fourtenay's husband Harry Baur knows that Lynen is not his son, but remains married for appearances' sake. Baur remains aloof and distant until he discovers the cruelties heaped upon Lynen by his resentful mother. Foster father and son develop a respect and friendship for one another that finally deepens into love. A remake of a 1925 film of the same name (also directed by Julien Duvivier), Poil de Carotte which made a star out of its juvenile lead Robert Lynen, whose genuine red head needed no touching up by the makeup men; sadly, Lynen was killed while fighting with the Resistance during World War II.

This is actually a movie originally made for children. A Norwegian one, too. Wow! You might think, this is probably weird. And it is, indeed. The story changes between fiction and real life.

Liberté-Oléron. 2001.

Here is another sea holiday comedy, but a much better one. Even though there's nothing original to revel in here, the depiction of this middle-class French family is so accurate that it becomes funny! Anybody can recognize a situation he has already lived. A god mirror to our lives and therefore as we poke fun of the awkward patriarch, we make fun of something not that far from what we have already lived or maybe of what we are in a certain way. Really funny.

Sýkorka / Little Chickadee. 1989.

„O velké lásce dvou různých malých dětí“
SK. Sýkorkou nazývá dědeček osmiletou vnučku Danku. Její dětství na malém městě je komplikováno skutečností, že pochází ze smíšeného česko-slovenského manželství a že oba její rodiče jsou zaměstnáni. Tak Danka tráví většinu svého volného času s milovaným dědou - truhlářem, který jí vštěpuje lásku k práci, ústu k lidem a smysl pro věrnost a přáteltví. Ze spolužáků je jejím nejlepším kamarádem chlapec Teo Grossmann, syn bohatého židovského kupce. Danka se téměř na každém kroku střetává s nesmyslnými bariérami národnostními, sociálnímia náboženskými. Píše se rok 1938 a v městečku narůstá napětí. Množí se protičeské a protižidovské výpady. Danka nemůže pochopit jaký rozdíl existuje mezi ní a Teem a třeba chlapci z hitlerjugend, kteří jsou ve slovenském městečku na prázdninách. Nechápe, že její dosud šťastný svět a současně i svět jejích rodičů, jejího dědy a všech čestných lidí se bortí.

Du bout des lèvres / On the Tip of the Tongue. 1976.

FR. Du bout des lèvres est un film belge réalisé par Jean-Marie Degèsves, sorti en 1976.
Fernand est solitaire, observateur, différent des autres adolescents de son âge tout en leur étant si proche. Il a quinze ans, l'âge des regards furtifs, du mensonge et des rêves infinis.
Madame Boirin est elle aussi solitaire, fugitive, ambiguë à l'encontre des amies de Fernand, Georgette la douce et Christine l'allumeuse. Répondra-t-elle a l'intérêt que Fernand lui porte ? Elle qui pourrait être sa jeune mère.
Fernand guette, espionne, observe les allées et venues du corps épanoui de cette femme qui, en certaines circonstances, teint de l'ignorer. Avec précision, astuce, Fernand s'approche, s'élance et lui parle.
Gentiment amusée, dupe ou non, Madame Boirin, l'écoute, sourit et surtout, s'intéresse à lui. Au fil de leurs rencontres et la jalousie aidant, cet amour quasi filial se transformera en attrait physique irrésistible : Fernand vibrera par et pour elle. Elle, tendrement émue, compréhensive ou si seule, acceptera ses avances jusqu'à ce que, devenu son 'petit Dieu'. Elle l'initie.

Locked in his room, he collects pictures of beautiful naked actresses to drown his boredom. His desire will come true in the presence of Catherine, a rich and mysteriously lonely woman next door. As a worker's son, withdrawn and taciturn, will discover a world that is new to him. He watches, spies, observes the comings and goings of the body of hers who, in certain circumstances ignores him. Through their encounters and helping jealousy, this almost filial love will turn into an irresistible physical attraction.

Put the camera on me. 2003.

1. Before he went on to direct Jawbreaker Sparkler Darren Stein grew up making videos. Along with his friend 'Adam Shell' and the other neighborhood kids these young film makers touched on such adult subjects as jealousy, cruelty, and sexuality.
2. The fact that I did not have Internet tonight was more of a blessing than a curse as I get to dig some of the movies that were laying around my external hard drive . Picked an excellent one – it is called “Put the camera on me” and it is a documentary. A documentary – au that must be boring – but no – because that was not an ordinary documentary, but rather fun and very arty made mixture of short movies shoot by Darren Stain.
When he was little boy his dad brought home a camera and Darren being very artistic and imaginative soon learned how to use it and was obsessed with the idea of making movies – regular one and crazy one starring himself and his friends . About 20 years later Daren combined these movies and together with his original stars – created the movie I just watched.
The best part of this movie was that while watching it I unconsciously started to remember similar situations that have happen to me few years ago– you know playing out with yours friends, having a hell a lot of fun, making cool tricks …etc– so the movie of Daren through not complicated or charged with great ideas or thoughts was quite an experience.
It gave me some ideas – like writing down my memories – making a script and getting few friends to play in it – oh I know that that is not probably going to happen – but the idea is cool anyway – imagining how it will be – I guess I will be able to do the first part and if I do you will be able to see few things at my blog.
But back to the movie – if you can get a hold on it see it – you won`t regret it. I remember talking with a friend about it.

Tomboy. 2011.

A family moves into a new neighborhood, and a 10-year-old named Laure deliberately presents as a boy named Mikhael to the neighborhood children. It is heavily implied that Mikhael is a closeted transgender boy. This film follows his experiences with his newfound friends, his potential love interest, Lisa, his younger sister and his parents. It focuses in on the significance of gender identity in social interaction from an early age, the difficulties of being transgender and young, and how Mikhael navigates these in the background of childhood play and love.

Blauvogel / Blue Bird. 1979.

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.
