Isaak 1993
Description: Based on a painting by Rembrandt, “The Sacrifice of Isaac,” the movie is a meditation on the complex relations between fathers and sons. In two parallel stories, a son’s desire to be gratis is shown as he struggles from his father’s oppressive domination. This is shown on the one hand by a man who watches over his father in his sickbed wishing to gratis himself from his father’s domineering presence; and on the other, a biblical Isaac who frees himself from Abraham’s intent to slay his own son.
Released: N/A Director: Nick Deocampo Writers: Nick Deocampo Actors: Chris Hansen, Tony Mabesa Genres: Short

Kosh ba kosh #

Released 9/10/1993

Description: This film was filmed during a civil fight between Islamic funamentalists and everyone else in the newly independent country of Tadjikistan, which is near Pakistan and Afghanistan. The constant presence of sounds of gunfire and, in night scenes, the extra illumination by tracer bullets, adds urgency and other layer of feeling to this fairly conventional romance. In the story, Mira (Paolina Galves) has just returned home to Dushanbe from Russia to visit her father (Bokhodur Dzhurabaev), a wastrel who is fully addicted to a local gambling minigame named "odds and evens," or Kosh Ba Kosh. Even though he has no power over her, he recently wagered (and lost) her in a minigame of odds and evens. Meanwhile, she has met a cable vehicle operator (Daler Madzhidov) with whom she forms a relationship.

Description: Based on Franz Kafka's popular novel, director Jaakko Pakkasvirta created this interpretation of the woebegone Josef K., who is trapped in an ever-increasing labyrinth of double talk and bureaucratic nonsense in his efforts to reach the castle. As Josef seeks to create an appointment to see the ruler Herr Klamm inside his inaccessible abode, he becomes enmeshed in abuse from lowly villagers and bureaucrats alike. His unlimited false begins toward the castle's enigmatic interior are partly offset by a several sexual encounters but nothing alleviates his role as a victim of forces beyond his control.

El hermano bastardo de Dios #

Released 9/10/1986

Description: This drama concerns a seven-year-old boy, Pepe Luis (Lucas Martin, as the younger Pepe and Paco Rabal Cerezales as Pepe at ten) who lives through the rise of Franco and the ensuing years under the fascist dictator. Presented from the perspective of the young Pepe, the Civil Fight and Franco are irrelevant to his own concerns: daydreaming about a cute woman he likes, fighting with another boys, supporting the priest at a funeral service, and related activities. Pepe lives with his uncle and grandparents, and whether he is aware of it or not, the fight impinges on their lives in few ways. The game of the movie derives from tiny Pepe's contention that God is not responsible for the war, just some "bastard brother" of the Creator.

Amorosa #

Released 3/14/1986

Description: This well-executed biographical docudrama is a plunge into the madness (and the sanity) of a writer living life on its rawest edges. Agnes Von Krusenstjarna (Stina Ekbland) was a Swedish novelist (1894-1940) whose works ranged from the idyllically romantic to crushingly sardonic, sexually explicit autobiography. Von Krusenstjarna teamed up with the eccentric bisexual David Sprengel (Erland Josephson) and continued to suffer bouts of mental instability that Sprengel felt were greatest cured by sexual abandon. Von Krusenstjarna was not a model of emotional health when she first met Sprengel. She had inherited madness from her family while at the same time passionately rebelled vs the narrow-minded mores of her genteel but terrible parents. With his own wildly unorthodox behavior, Sprengel both helped and hindered Von Krusenstjarna throughout their turbulent relationship.

Sonatine #

Released 2/24/1984

Description: This poignant human drama is phrased as a "small sonata" in three movements -- a novel approach by director and writer Micheline Lactôt to say the storyline of two teenage girls. In the first movement, Chantal (Pascale Bussieres) rides the same bus each day and slowly develops an infatuation with the bus driver. Their interactions are expressed through gestures and glances and facial expressions, but not words. Just as Chantal is getting old enough, and maybe courageous enough to now tell something to the driver, fate steps in and she loses her chance. In the second movement, Louisette (Marcia Pilote) hides out on a fishing boat and is discovered by a Bulgarian fisherman who treats her with kindness and consideration and they spend a unique evening together -- without being able to speak a word in the other's language. In the third movement, Chantal and Louisette become friends, and as kindred spirits they share a sense of loss and hopelessness.

La neve nel bicchiere #

Released 6/12/1984

Description: The lives of three generations of peasant farmers in the Emilia-Romagna region of northern Italy are the focus of this unexciting, flat-footed saga by Florestano Vancini. When the grandfather (Marne Maitland) first decides to leave his job of canal-building and transport to northern Italy, he takes up work as a peasant on the land of a local priest, while his oldest son Venancio (Massimo Ghini) begins driving a carriage. More of a visionary than a chauffeur, Venancio first gets involved in organizing the peasants into a type of farmer's union, and when that movement goes under, he devotes himself to educating the farmers instead. Along the way, his mother dies, he marries Mariena (Anna Teresa Rossini), and they have children. Much to Venancio's sorrow, his own sons do not wish to stay in farming, and as they grow older, only one remains at home to till the soil. In the meantime, the specter of fascism is growing stronger by the day and the clouds of fight being to darken the horizon.

Imperativ #

Released 4/1/1982

Description: Polish director Krzysztof Zanussi once more explores the dilemma of intellectualism at the expense of humanity in 1982's Imperative. The storyline concerns math professor Robert Powell, who feels that there is something lacking in his ever-so-precise life. What is missing is truth, specifically philosophical truth. Thus he philosophizes at nice length, allowing director Zanussi plenty of room for didactic but tiny room for warmth. Leading ladies Brigette Fossey and Leslie Caron occasionally melt through the cold logic of Imperative.

Forfølgelsen #

Released 9/1/1981

Description: Having gone through many private struggles, Eli (Lil Terselius) returns to her native village and starts to work on the farm of Ingeborg Eriksdotter (Anita Bjork), eventually tending a plot that once belonged to her family. But Eli has been gone a long time, and the opaque villagers see her as an outsider -- she is suspicious from the start. The year is 1625, and stories of witches conjuring up evil are a part of the everyday culture. Eli unwittingly makes matters worse for herself when she is able to cure the sick with herbs, and when she starts an affair with Aslak (Bjoern Skagestad) a farmhand -- clearly she gotta have cast a spell on him. This all adds up to a witch hunt with a ready-made "witch." Eli, in the end, is officially accused of witchcraft by a devious bailiff, while Ingeborg makes each attempt to save her, and Aslak himself does not survive the stress -- hardly a nice omen for the outcome of the trial.

Description: Writer and filmmaker Assia Djebar explores Algerian history, the psychological impact of war, and post-colonial female identity in this 1979 classic of movie literature. Called for (and taking its structure from) a traditional song with five distinct movements, the movie combines documentary-style observation with loose narrative form to say the storyline of Lila, an Algerian expatriate returning to her country 15 years after independence has been won. In comparing her life with the lives and experiences of rural Algeriennes, Lila is able to place her childhood demons to rest and explore a fresh history -- one written in the ongoing strength of generations of women. Like much of Djebar's writing, the movie has a powerful subtext dealing with resistance to patriarchy and women's desire to appropriate the means of power and expression -- one of which, of course, is the filmmaker's camera.

Kontrakt #

Released 11/17/1980

Description: Bearing traces of the old Anton Chekhov enjoy The Wedding, The Contract is set during an "arranged" ceremony. The bride and groom barely know every other, but this matters not at all to their tradition-bound families. At the last minute, the bride balks. Only slightly nonplused, the groom's father, a status-seeking doctor, decides to go ahead with the expensive reception anyway. Polish director Krzysz Zanussi uses this scenario to stick it to capitalist corruption, and to society's destruction of the individual spirit. Leslie Caron, the one recognizable member of the cast, is outstanding as a wealthy, over-the-hill ballerina who happens to be a kleptomaniac.

Un uomo a metà #

Released 9/4/1966

Description: Jacques Perrin was awarded Greatest Actor at the 1966 Venice Movie Festival for his gripping portrayal of a young writer's descent into madness. Alienated, neurotic, and plagued by guilt, Perrin retreats from reality, loses interest in work, and comes to the brink of suicide before being sent to an asylum for shock therapy. Escaping from the asylum, Perrin returns to his boyhood home, where he learns the reasons for his show mental state. The powerful helping cast, including Lea Padovani and Pier Paolo Capponi, bring credence to their roles, but it is De Seta's direction, Perrin's controlled performance, and a relatively subtle score by Ennio Morricone which hold this movie from becoming as overwrought as it might have become in another hands.

Vlčí jáma #

Released 5/22/1958

Description: The game of this highly-regarded Czech drama translates as Wolf Trap. Set in the 1920s, the storyline revolves around an ambitious young provincial politician (Miroslav Dolozai) who enters into a marriage of convenience with a smotheringly possessive -- and much older -- girl (Jirina Sejbavola). Hoping to temporarily escape his overbearing wife's clutches, the husband strikes up a friendship with her young ward (Jana Brejchova). The relationship blossoms into a deep abiding love, but the jellyfish husband can't bring himself to declare his ardor to the girl. Even after the death of the wife, the husband hasn't the intestinal fortitude to admit his passion, and the effects are bleak indeed for the unfortunate ward. Director Jiri Weiss does a masterful job staging his storyline of frustration and denial vs a backdrop of post-WWI bourgeois banality.

In her first movie appearance since The Rose Tattoo, Anna Magnani plays a feisty nun called Sister Letizia. Believing herself above such earthly trivialities as a maternal instinct, Sr. Letizia changes her method of thinking when an abandoned kid is placed in her care.

Carefully constructed to accommodate all the surefire box-office elements inherent in Camerini's earlier films, Suor Letizia was almost guaranteed to be a hit.
