His work is made more hard by envy; for example, that of his teacher, who was wounded defending his honor.

Description: Globe Fight II has long provided fodder for European filmmakers and East German director Konrad Wolf is no exception.

Description: Rumania's entry in the 1958 Cannes Movie Festival was the excessively melodramatic Ciulinii Barganului. The game translates as Fools of Baragan, in reference to a band of beleaguered feudal Rumanian peasants. But these are no fools: instead, they are fearless freedom fighters, organizing a brave (though foredoomed) revolt vs the tyranny of the landowners. The parallels drawn between the folks of Baragun and Russia's revolutionary leaders are all but impossible to miss. It would have been nice, however, if the storyline had not been said in such a heavy-handed, spell-it-all-out fashion.

Description: This easy-to-take Hungarian drama is also known as Two Wishes. The prinicipal characters are a pair of juvenile delinquents, who may still be redeemable. The sullen duo is befriended by a kindly police inspector, who takes it upon himself to straighten out the boys. What follows cannot be termed surprsingly or innovative, though it is immensely satisfying. Of interest is the fact that a Communist-bloc movie would admit to a delinquency trouble in the so-called Worker's Paradise. Ket Vallomas was the Hungarian entry in the 1957 Cannes Movie Festival.
Description: This Norwegian documentary was released in another countries as Lapland Calendar. In Disneyesque fashion, the movie features the day-to-day existence of the Norwegian Laplanders. The "story" concentrates on the annual odyssey wherein the Lapland reindeer are shepherded to snow-free grazing lands. Not surprisingly, director Per Host is more fascinated with the reindeer than with the human characters -- and, by extension, so is the audience. The movie was lensed in economical Eastmancolor, meaning that most existing prints have washed out over the past 40 years.

When Tanilo is felled by illness, Estaban is forced to take over the family's blacksmith business. He also inaugurates a romance with Tanilo's pretty young wife Juana (Lilia Prado).

Description: The main focus is on the 5 member band of a tiny circus as it runs into issues while touring rural Japan. It also pays lots of attention to the two daughters of the aging and irascible ringmaster-circus owner. The high points are the sound (and score) and cinematography featuring a lot of vertiginous panning (appropriate - as high wire trapeze artists are also an necessary element in the film). A fascinating side-light on 30s Japan.
Description: Judging by the number of times it has shown up on Spanish-language cable TV, La escondida is one of the most famous and greatest beloved of the Maria Felix vehicles.

La escondida is stunningly photographed by the late, nice Gabriel Figueroa.
