Niekto ako ja. 1988.

Pôvodný televízny hudobný film pre deti a mládež. Tento film je velmi vzacny, lebo je jediny, v ktorom Dežo Ursiny spieva aj hra. Pri skorsom slavnom muzikali Neberte nam princeznu je tento trocha v jeho tieni a zabudnuty. Rovnako piesne z neho sa neobjavili na ziadnom nosici. Je to skoda, lebo film je to velmi pekny a piesne su krasne. Neberte nam princeznu bol muzikal zo zivota mladych ludi a deti, bol inspirovany rozpravkou a bol ako z rozpravkovych knih. Niekto ako ja je tiez zo zivota mladych ludi, je tiez inspirovany rozpravkou o sestre, ktora hlada svojho brata, ale nie je ako z rozpravkovych knih. Je civilny, skor az domumentarny.

A Menina do Lado. 1987.

PT. A Menina ao Lado conta a história de Mauro (Reginaldo Faria), um jornalista de 45 anos, que aluga uma casa em Búzios a fim de poder terminar o livro que escreve. Na casa ao lado, Alice (Flávia Monteiro), uma menina de 14 anos, afável e solitária, passa as férias. Pouco a pouco, o encanto da garota conquista Mauro que, contra as expectativas, se apaixona por Alice.
EN. 1. Middle-aged married journalist goes to the beach resort of Búzios, in Brazil, to write a book. Gradually, he falls in love with his neighbor's daughter, a beautiful teenager much younger than he, ignoring the social implications.
2. She's fifteen. He's about thirty years older than her. And they are in love. She knows what she is doing. So does he. The movie does not try to preach, just to show some people are like that. I must say I was happily surprised to see such potentially heavy subject handled as gently as it is. The actress was actually a virgin and fifteen when they filmed it, so her mother was present, and someone had to explain to the girl how to fake a sex scene. It was funny to see her recall the experience at a movie debate on Brazilian TV. And she looks convincing in the movie. I thought she was older, and doing a good job of looking younger, when I saw it. If you seriously believe no one under 18 has any emotional maturity, you're in for a shock.

The Strange Affair. 1968.

The Strange Affair is a 1968 British crime film directed by David Greene and starring Michael York, Jeremy Kemp and Susan George.
Peter Strange (Michael York) is an idealistic young police recruit who gets mixed up with the machinations of the tough and jaded Scotland Yard Detective Sergeant Pierce (Jeremy Kemp). Pierce is trying to arrest a gang for drug smuggling and later murder, but is thwarted respectively by a corrupt colleague and an unconvicing witness. Strange is shocked by finding the dead body of a murdered informant he knew and is himself brutally assaulted. Meanwhile, Strange is having an affair with Frederika (Susan George), a minor who he does not know is part of a pornography ring; her supposed aunt and uncle film and photograph her sexual encounters from behind a one-way mirror. (Susan George was 17 at the time the film was shot.)
Pierce obtains copies of photographs of Strange's sexual encounter with Frederika and threatens to expose him to his superiors, ending his career, unless Strange plants some heroin on one of the gang. Strange reluctantly agrees, despite planning to leave the force anyway, as he is disillusioned by the failure to catch and convict the drugs gang. Pierce's planting of evidence is revealed and he is convicted of perverting the course of justice and jailed.
Director: David Greene.
Cast: Michael York, Jeremy Kemp, George A. Cooper, George Selway, Artro Morris, Richard Pearson, Susan George, Madge Ryan, Jack Watson, Richard Vanstone.

La discesa di Aclà a Floristella / Acla's Decent Into Floristella. 1992.

Brutal film about the exploitation of a young Italian boy, who is virtually sold to the operators of a sulphur mine where he is beaten and sexually molested.
This is the story of a young adolescent in an Italian mining community, ostensibly (or hopefully) at some time in the past. He is indentured in a traditional apprenticeship system that makes him a virtual slave to his bosses. The inferno-like conditions of sulphur mining, the sexual exploitation resulting from week-long separation of husbands from wives, and the ever-present danger of the mines combine construct a real-life allegory for the dual "open" and "subterranean" levels of human nature. Acla's boyish exuberance, sensitivity and idealism set him fundamentally at odds with his environment. Aurelio Grimaldi's excellent direction ensures you won't know the outcome until the closing credits roll. This is not an easy film to watch: you fill emotionally drained for a long time afterward. Be warned.
Director: Aurelio Grimaldi.

EN. In 1974, a group of 11-year-old boys spend the last carefree summer of their childhood, unaware that the world of grown-ups, with its loves, passions, prejudices and curses, is about to seal their fate. Aaron, Stelios, Sakis, Galanos and Verios, "the acrobats", are best friends. School has closed for the summer holidays and the children spend their time playing games, running errands, and riding their bikes. Life is a game, into which they channel all their physical energy and imagination. They practice their diving abilities in a big cistern. It is a game through which their special talents and competitive spirit unfold. One is good at balancing acts, another at diving and another at somersaults. It is in this neighborhood that Aaron will spend the most important summer of his life: a rite of passage from childhood to adolescence, a time for learning about love, jealousy and friendship.

Al otro lado. 2004.

Al Otro Lado ("To The Other Side") is a 2004 Mexican film directed by Gustavo Loza. The film follows the story of three children, one from Mexico, Cuba, and Morocco, as they attempt to deal with realities of immigration in their societies. The film won three awards at the Lleida Latin-American Film Festival in 2006, including Best Film and the Audience Award; Vanessa Bauche won best actress at the festival for her performance. Al Otro Lado was also the Mexican candidate for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film at the 78th Academy Awards, but was not selected as one of the final five nominees.
The movie is composed by three short films that, in appearance, are connected by a theme: the immigrants lacking identity papers. This it is not completely true if we set us in the plot of the story that happens in Cuba, where a boy wants to seek his father, an American citizen. In reality Al Otro Lado is the story of three children that want to enjoy his absent parents but are impeded by their economic situation; three stories that themselves turn in just one story of hope.
Director: Gustavo Loza.

Alucarda, la hija de las tinieblas / Innocents from Hell. 1977.

ES. Alucarda, la hija de las tinieblas es una película de horror mexicana de 1978, dirigida por Juan López Moctezuma y protagonizada por Tina Romero en el rol principal. Está basada en Carmilla, novela corta de 1872 escrita por Sheridan Le Fanu. Narra la historia de dos huérfanas que viven en un convento católico y se ven enfrentadas a una posesión diabólica.

Ana Nojoom bent alasherah wamotalagah / I Am Nojoom, Age 10 and Divorced. 2014.

I Am Nojoom, Age 10 and Divorced is a 2014 Yemeni drama film directed by Khadija al-Salami. It was selected as the Yemeni entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 89th Academy Awards, the first time that Yemen had submitted a film for consideration. However, it was not nominated. The film is based on the story of Nujood Ali, who sought divorce from her abusive husband at age 10.
A true story about a ten-year-old girl, forced to marry a man twenty years her senior. She tries to free herself from this violent relationship by filing for divorce at a Yemeni court. Khadija Al-Salami is Yemens first female filmmaker and belongs to a new generation of Arab women filmmakers whose work is currently screened in EYE.
The opening film in EYEs programme is an adaptation of the international bestseller about 10-year old Nujood, who made international headlines in 2009 when she protested against her arranged marriage. Nujood became the figurehead of the fight against child brides in Yemen. According to figures of the United Nations and the Yemeni government, some 50% of Yemeni girls are married before they are 18, while 15% is married before the age of 15.
The girls are taken away from their families with the promise of a moderate dowry and the argument that there will be one mouth less to feed. Nojooms husband, however, forces his young bride to do hard work and rapes her every night a legitimate and acceptable act in the eyes of the majority, but not for Nojoom.
