La tía Alejandra / Aunt Alejandra. 1979.

ES. La tía Alejandra es una película mexicana de horror dirigida por Arturo Ripstein. Fue estrenada en 1979, protagonizada por Isabela Corona y Diana Bracho.
La trama se sustenta en la llegada a un hogar familiar, formado por dos padres y sus tres hijos, de la anciana tía del marido. Una mujer en principio cariñosa que sufre graves cambios de humor, que se recluye en su habitación con bastante regularidad y que parece estar rodeada por un aura de misterio que causa rechazo en el mayor de los hijos y no hace más que traer desgracias a la casa desde su llegada. La Tía posee una fortuna que seguramente ayudará a sus parientes, pero en realidad empieza a destruir a toda la familia en forma diabólica, pues intenta enseñar brujería a los niños. Cuando uno de ellos le hace travesuras provoca su muerte, y cuando su sobrino la echa de la casa lo ahoga en su propia cama. Luego la niña mayor le quema el rostro y ella hace que se incendie una habitación completa con la niña dentro. Solo sobrevive la esposa y la hija pequeña, pero esta parece haber aprendido los secretos de la Tía...
EN. La Tía Alejandra (Aunt Alejandra) is a Mexican horror film of 1979, starring Isabela Corona.
The plot is based on the arrival of Aunt Alejandra to a familiar household consisting of two parents and three children. A woman who is loving, in principle, suffers severe mood swings and strange things happen in her room quite regularly and that seems to be surrounded by an aura of mystery. Rejected by the eldest child, she only serves to bring misfortune to them since coming home. Auntie has a fortune that will surely help her relatives, but really begins to destroy the whole family with diabolical acts, and attempts to teach children witchcraft. When one of the children mocks her, she caused his death. When her nephew dismisses of his house, she chokes him in his own bed. When the older girl burns her face, Alejandra burns an entire room with the girl inside. Only surviving Lucía, the wife, and her young daughter, but she seems to have learned the secrets of Alejandra...
La Tía Alejandra is a curious and unusual, a rarity in the genre of Mexican Cinema. Not strictly a horror film, but conveys concern in many of its passages. It is not explicit in what it shows but rightly fiddles with witchcraft, curses, black Magic and Satanism. Not when graphic violence on screen display, but in a subtle way the sample with an elegant ferocity that causes discomfort even viewer. The staging of Ripstein is austere. But his control over the narrative tempo is excellent. With the atmosphere and the magnetic presence of a large Isabela Corona that from a physical get feeble and helpless to convey a menacing tone that seems unfeasible but for the good work between director and actress.

La India. 1975.

A boy after watching his mother making love to another man becomes obsessed with her, to the point that as he grows up becomes a rival to her mother's (a cabaret dancer called LA India) lover.
From a 70's Mexican film we are always expecting something out of the normal to say the least, this one its not above those expectations, a mix of a weird story, surrealism and oedipus complex all under teh Mexican sun make this one a real winner. The director works well with the actors, but sometimes over use a bit those long close-up shots, and does divide the film in two different parts, one more conventional with a normal story, the other a more surrealist, but still a very positive work.

L'année de mes sept ans. 2003.

My name is Helene and 1952 was not an easy year for me. First, because my parents decided to leave Montpellier for Paris but without taking me and my big brother Michel along with them. Why, I don't know... The fact remains that I had to leave the south for Lille, in the North, where my grandmother Yaya (her true name is Alice but this is the way call her) and my grandfather Georges were living. What I disliked most was that Yaya had a preference for Michel and that Granddaddy was too grumpy. In Lille I also got very upset when pupils at the catholic school I attended told me I was... Jewish. Jewish? I didn't even know that Jews even existed. And when I knew better about them (Michel was more informed than I was), what a shock it was when I learned that my two other grandparents had been sent to a concentration during the war. A little too much for a little girl like me. A sure thing is that I will never forget the year 1952, the year when I was seven....

Foruten henne består Lars' venner av Peter og den gamle sjøulken Kalle, som bor på loftet. I tillegg har han god kontakt med sin onkel Tobby.

Sally Mann, photographer.

Sally Mann, all I could find about this interesting fine art photographer in one archive, the contents of the following:
1. As one of the world's preeminent photographers, Sally Mann creates artwork that challenges viewers' values and moral attitudes. Described by Time magazine as "America's greatest photographer," she first came to international prominence in 1992 with Immediate Family, a series of complex and enigmatic pictures of her three children. What Remains--Mann's recent series on the myriad aspects of death and decay--is the subject of this eponymously titled documentary.
Filmed at her Virginia farm, Mann is surrounded by her husband and now-grown children, and her willingness to reveal her artistic process allows the viewer to gain exclusive entrance to her world. Never one to compromise, she reflects on her own personal feelings about mortality as she continues to examine the boundaries of contemporary art. Spanning five years, What Remains contains unbridled access to the many stages of Mann's work, and is a rare glimpse of an eloquent and brilliant artist.
Director: Steven Cantor.
USA, 2005.
Language: English.
2. The archive is also a photo album Sally Mann "Immediate Family": "These are photographs of my children....Many of these pictures are intimate, some are fictions and some are fantastic, but most are of ordinary things every mother has seen. I take pictures when they are bloodied or sick or naked or angry. They dress up, they pout and posture, they paint their bodies, they dive like otters in the dark river." 
3. Blood Ties: The Life and Work of Sally Mann.
Documentary about Sally Mann.
Blood Ties: The Life and Work of Sally Mann is a 1994 short documentary film directed by Steven Cantor and Peter Spirer. It was premiered at the 1994 Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Short.

It is presented as a grand drama, not just full of stirring, colorful photographs, but also provocative ideas, illusions and ideals. Jan Saudek became a world-renowned photographer, winning international awards and being exhibited abroad, long before he had gained recognition in his native country. He is a man who appears in many roles before the camera, often changing them, often surprising, and often shocking. However, even the most versatile illusionist is incapable of entirely hiding in the face of three cameramen in action under the supervision of a director.

Las que empiezan a los quince años. 1978.
ES. Elvira, una joven cuya vida está llena de dificultades y cuyas relaciones familiares son muy problemáticas, decide entrar en el mundo de la prostitución. Algunas amigas de su misma edad le facilitarán el camino.
EN. The adventures of Elisa, Marian and Susi in Sexland.
"Las que empiezan a los quince anos" tells the story of the sexual adventures of three fifteen'year old girls: Elisa, Marian and Susi.
Elisa lives with her father and her stepmother. Her father, drown in debts by reason of bad business decisions, has to run away from his debtors. Elisa remains with her stepmother that has no love left for her. Soon Elisa is out in the streets. One of the roads left for her is prostitution. Her life will be one of many adventures and misadventures.
Marian, very early in her life, became a prostitute. She had known a good-looking guy in a party. She falls in love with him, but in reality he's a pimp. One day they have a fight and Marian decides to become independent. She opens the doors of the cars and ask the drivers if they want some company. On seeing this beautiful lolita, many say that, yes, they could do with a bit of company.
Susi's family has no financial problems. Her father works a lot and is always absent, but her mother likes and understands her. Susi likes girls. She sometimes plays innocent little games with Elisa and Marian.
There's no doubt that "Las que empiezan a los quince anos" is an exploitation film. Many exploitation films try to hide their nature by assuming the form of a cautionary tale. In this way, the morality watchdogs are partially appeased. This doesn't happen here. "Las que empiezan a los quince anos" gives no excuses.

Las tumbas / The Tombs. 1991.

"El Pollo," a 13-year-old child in reform school, witnesses and experiences the brutalization of the guards and the other inmates.
A beautiful, poetic movie regarding the tormented existence of young inmates in Argentinian's juvenile jails, more or less during dictatorship rule. The young "pollo" escapes from one male-directed prison only to be recaptured and sent to another one, led by women. In spite of the warden's ferocity and sadism, he manages to tie a relationship with the only female that seems to care for the kids, who is eventually discovered and punished. The film discloses the rueful sadic behaviour of adults, priests included, against the stray cats, and the magic of human relationships that mild in these desperate situations. Though it seems that from Argentina we only get movies about fascist and concentration-camp like prisons, of course this reflects the dramatic recent history. A praise for the little actors, especially the one playing "Lupini" is great.

Last Day of Summer. 1984.

This rarely seen television film was one of the first dramas to be shown on Channel 4 in Britain. Brothers Tom and Pete live in their late parents' sprawling home deep in the English countryside on the banks of the River Thames. Pete, being old enough to inherit the house, decides to open it as a commune, in keeping with his hippie leanings, and reflecting the era in which the film is set, and when a vacancy occurs he decides to take the first person who applies. Jenny, played by Annette Badland, then joins the commune completing the diverse range of characters. Initially her plain looks and shy personality are the subject of some ridicule from the others, but soon her warmth and kindness wins everybody over, and she and young Tom, who is still a boy grieving for his parents and obviously lonely amongst a houseful of adults, form a strong bond. Jenny become a big sister for Tom, and Tom shows suburbanite Jenny the wonders of the countryside in the full bloom of high summer. They spend time picnicking and boating on the river in Tom's boat, and the summer passes lazily by until the last day of the school holidays when the drama begins. Just about everything in this film is pretty near perfect. The acting is sensitive and credible, the haunting piano score is spot on and the attention to detail is breathtaking - the posters on the wall of Tom's bedroom are obviously genuine 1960s articles. But it is the cinematography that really shines. Rarely has the Berkshire countryside looked more lush, and the interiors are moodily lit, with shafts of sunlight peeking through both the permanently closed heavy curtains and the marijuana smoke.
Director: Derek Banham.
Cast: Annette Badland, Graham McGrath, James Gaddas, Christine Winter, John Telfer, Saskia Reeves.
