Loubia Hamra #

Released 11/24/2013

Description: On an Algerian beach, children splash about, sleep, squabble - and then suddenly go to war. And it’s neither King of the Flies nor La Guerre des boutons. In her first film, full of grace, Narimane Mari movies this childish freefor- all closely, at the irregular pace of an imagination inspired by the highest form of reality, national History — actually, nothing less than the Algerian Fight of Independence. When their make-believe induces a general upheaval, we follow the flock of kids as they stamp their feet up the stairs, invade houses, cross village squares, in a whirlwind of shouts and empty words. Time is stretched like in a dream, through a choreography of belligerent shadows or the night-time explosion of the cemetery, as so many warning signs of dangers to come.

Bella ciao #

Released 6/4/2000

Description: A boy struggles to help his family while remaining real to his ideals in this drama set in Europe during the 1930s. Orfeo Mancini and his wife Nella are a pair of working-class Italians who years ago swore allegiance to the Communist party. With Mussolini on the rise, Orfeo and Nella come to the conclusion that they are no longer welcome in their native land, and they decide to pull up stakes and transport to America with their two children. As a effect of some confusion en route, the Mancinis end up in Marseilles rather than the United States; needing work, Orfeo takes a job working as a manual laborer for a wealthy landowner. This requires a serious amount of pride-swallowing on Orfeo's part, since his fresh boss is an Italian expatriate who once courted Nella. The case becomes all the more hard for Orfeo when his employer throws his allegiances behind the growing fascist movement.

La souriante Madame Beudet Reviews:

"La Souriante Madame Beudet" is mostly interesting and a classic because of its unusual and daring theme, for its time. Back in the '20's girls rights weren't exactly regarded as the most necessary or relevant things, to place it mildly. Girls were often oppressed and restrained in their marriage, to mainly only household chores, as is shown in this film about a girl who is trapped in a loveless marriage.Of course there is not much to the story, it's just purely about its theme. The film follows the life of the husband and wife over a couple of days, in which she gets humiliated and has to do humiliating chores for her husband. She begins thinking about taking revenge but the clever girl is later stricken with remorse. The film shows the position of the girl in daily life and it of course does so by exaggerating things to create its point. Normally we only know French films for its excellent and romantic love stories. This is a entire various piece of cake.The film is made in a style-full fashion, which makes the film really interesting to watch, even for todays standards. The film has some interesting camera positions, such as a couple of over-shoulder shots. But also the storytelling is interesting and style-full, such as in the sequences were the husband is faking emotions and in the background the mirror opens with a couple of hand-puppets testing the exact same scene, with the words 'all theater' appearing. It makes the imaginative Germaine Dulac directing also one of the highlights of the movie.Alexandre Arquillière is brilliantly repulsive as the husband and Germaine Dermoz is nice as the obviously more clever wife. There are a couple of more characters but the film does a nice job at concentrating mostly purely on the two main hero were after all the film and its plot is all about of course.In todays perspective, the film is both interesting and pretty to watch.8/10http://bobafett1138.blogspot.com/


I studied Girls and Movie with author, Dr. Sandy Flitterman-Lewis at Rutgers University and this is one of the many movies that we watched in the viewing. Germaine Dulac provided us a glimpse into the life of girls in France during Pre-World Fight II era and Post Globe Fight I world. Paris was a town who loved the arts at the time and was thriving with literary salons and American expatriates as well. Germaine Dulac never captured as much attention but she could have been on league with her male counterparts like Jean Epstein and others. Sadly, the fight and the depression may have ended her career like so many others. We can only imagine what might have been if Germaine Dulac had been given the same advantages that her male counterparts received during that time. But she was one of the lucky ones to receive the experienced to direct such movies like this that are controversial and eye opening as well. Language is not important since sound didn't come until the 1930s and Germaine's career went elsewhere.


"La Souriante Madame Beudet" is other remarkable movie directed by Damen Dulac, one of the most outstanding avant-garde French directors of the time and the topics of some previous reviews of her principal silent movies by this German Count in his modern diary some months ago. This one is a movie that has all of the characteristics of her another movies insofar as their likeness of cinema innovations and the display of strong, independent and decisive female characters.The movie depicts the storyline of Madame Beudet, a modern frenchified girl who likes to enjoy at the piano longhaired composers' oeuvres ( Debussy ), read novels ( Flaubert, probably… ) and modern magazines. She is married with a textile businessman. He is a rude and ordinary boy who absolutely bores his wife because he has various cultural interests than her, like going to the theater to watch "Faust" ( obviously Madame Beudet as a excellent French chauvinist doesn't like that German enjoy ).When Monsieur Beudet is fed up with the differences between them, he makes a fake attempts to commit suicide in front of her with a revolver that is not loaded… But one day, his wife territories bullets in the barrel...The most remarkable aspect of this movie it is the will that Madame Beudet displays to place an end to an unhappy marriage. She is an intelligent, cultivated person that can't stand such bored life. She rebels vs marriage's conventions, affirms the right to live her own life, to claim a satisfied life via an inward rebellion that only has success in her dreams ( displayed in the movie with trick and unique results ). So the possibility to receive her freedom thanks to her husband's continuous fake suicide attempts seems to be the excellent excuse for her to create her dreams come true.But in spite of her desires and plots vs her husband, at the end Madame Beudet will succumb to remorse. Even with those inner claims of independence, she accepts her particular condemnation as shown in the last sequence of the film…walking about the roads with her husband, crestfallen.Bu in spite or thanks to such an ending, Damen Dulac achieve her inward intentions displayed in this film: the right to be a nonconformist, independent and satisfied human ( girl ) being.And now, if you'll let me, I gotta temporarily take my leave because this German Count gotta check if their musket is, sure enough, not loaded.Herr Graf Ferdinand Von Galitzien
