He persuades Lizzie Thomas, a secretary at a local estate agent's, to come and work for him as his assistant, to bring some order to his chaos. He inspires her with his enthusiasm and imagination, and frustrates her with his apparent carelessness and destructiveness, which culminates in her calling the police as one of his parties is attacked by local troublemakers, seemingly with his tacit approval. But their paths are destined to cross again and again as Lizzie, with the support of some of the folks that she met at Paul's house, rises through the changing landscape of corporate Britain. This is the tale of a meaningful and strong relationship that isn't a love story; it's about those rare folks who profoundly influence and shape our lives.

Description: Devil Gold is director José Novoa's third collaboration with producer Elia Schneider, and like the previous two films, Huelepega (or Glue Sniffer, which Schneider directed in 2000) and Sicario (1994), the movie is a thriller-melodrama that focuses on a real-life trouble plaguing Venezuela, with an emphasis on how the conditions affect children.

The storyline is said entirely without the test of spoken dialogue. Symbolic imagery replaces much of what would have been spoken in a narrative, establishing the case and setting. In the story, two brothers are part of an underground organization opposed to the totalitarian regime. Members of the underground identify themselves using pieces of torn photographs. Reviewers found that the storyline is said intelligibly and quite swiftly, despite the absence of dialog, but is not quite lively enough to satisfy action buffs.
Description: A dark and claustrophobic film, this brutal, tragic, gut-wrenching drama is set almost fully within the confines of a ship's cargo container that is only 25 square meters in size. It is the grim storyline of six ill-fated refugees trying to receive to Canada from a port in France. The police are in hot pursuit when the septet of strangers are stowed away in the large metal box. The refugees -- two men, two girls and two kids -- are of different backgrounds including Gypsy, Russian and Arab. The first of many issues occurs when a mother and daughter arrive with no meal (they lost it during a chase). The one Russian refugee, Roman, declares that they could not be allowed to board the ship, but the another three refugees let them in. Their ordeal starts when the ship breaks down in Liverpool.
Description: Each kid who has lost a parent early in life (whether due to death or the separations of divorce or for any another reason) longs to see that parent again. Many have kept up a running dialogue in their heads of things they would tell to them if they ever see them again, and many of these things are bitter indeed. In this story, Camille (Marianne-Coquelicot Mercier is such a child. Her father (Denis Mercier) left years before, and actually she is thirteen. Stargazing appeals to her as a hobby because "stars have no sex." Surprisingly, her father does reappear, but actually he is a "she." This casts a pall over their reunion, and Camille is forced to come to terms with her fresh father, and cannot renew a relationship with the boy who (in his view at least) never was.

After a woman at the school is found to have been gang-raped, the headmaster chooses Valerka to be one of the scapegoats, though he had nothing to do with the deed. The punishment seems mild enough, he was simply expelled from school. However, after quarrelling with his mother about the incident, he takes to the road, and discovers a society so bleak, degraded and hopeless that it is a wonder he remained alive.
Description: Mavi Sürgün is a fictionalized acc of one period of the life of a Turkish journalist who was condemned to exile for an article he wrote in 1925. He turned his punishment into a reward by creating a tiny paradise in what is today the vacation resort, Bodrum. In fact he is considered by some to be the first ecologist. The movie concentrates on this latter aspect of his hero and through flashbacks portrays the inner turmoil of a boy who is trying to come to terms with his past. The slow pace is somewhat of a drawback, the flashbacks are often confusing and the protagonist is not everytime very convincing. But the photography of the country side is exceptional Kenan Ormanlar and the short appearance by a very theatrical Hanna Schygulla of Fassbinder fame adds a tiny spice to the drama.

Irene Rich is married to Marc McDermott. He's old, he's irascible, he's dying, and he's mad that Irene is being escorted to the charity ball by John Roche from across the street. So he switches his sleeping pills for the aspirin and insists she gives him too many so when he dies, she'll be in trouble. What a joke! Fortunately, John's brother, Monte Blue, has just been made a judge, so he gets the investigation quashed.Monte gets engaged to Norma Shearer (credited as "Norma Sherer"); Monte and Irene fall in love thanks, we are said by vast swaths of titles, to the irresistible force of fate; Monte and Miss Sherer are married an everyone goes off to escort Monte's father to the hospital, leaving the two competitors for Blue alone in the same house because.... well, that seems like a nice idea, doesn't it?It's the sort of storyline I am not overly fond of, but director Jack Conway does his usual stalwart greatest with it, with a melodramatic ending involving a fire, wolves and a flood. Unfortunately, while Miss Rich seems well cast, Norma Shearer is still learning her craft, and exhibits her "Ain't I cute?" tricks at full blast, causing me to wish to shoot her. Mr. Blue is stuck in the middle with many a reaction shot, in which, I believe, he is supposed to look pensive. Instead, he looks like a rather doughy elder brother of Harry Langdon, thinking about the case and not coming to any conclusion.Fortunately, this film did not seem to harm anyone's career. Mr. Blue went on to work with Lubitsch in some sparkling comedies at Warners, while Conway, Shearer, and producer Harry Rapf fled to the newly formed Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, where they all did very well by themselves and the studio.
It had other game and Robert E. Sherwood of "Life" magazine explained ""Lucretia Lombard" has an alternative game "Flaming Passion" and is used in those districts were passion is popular"!!. Passion was very famous with Kathleen Norris who was the most widely read and the highest paid American girl writer from 1911 to 1959 and specialized in novels with plenty of romantic complications. Lucretia Lombard (Irene Rich) pays the price for marrying for wealth and a game - she has been shackled for years to a tyrannical husband (Marc McDermott) whose dissipated younger life has left him a drug addicted wreck. Everytime the excellent wife, "Remember" she remarks to a disgruntled butler "we can receive away from him but he can't receive away from himself"!!Across the street are the Winships and when Lombard dies of a drug overdose, D.A. Stephen Winship is named in when suspicion is thrown on Lucretia. Lombard is a thoroughly nasty piece of work, not only does he switch pill box lids so the poisonous painkillers can be mistaken for the mild aspirins, he sets the stage when young Fred Winship comes to take Lucretia to a charity ball by indicating that she would be only too satisfied to receive rid of him. Norma Shearer has the part of Mimi, Judge Winship's (Alec B. Francis) petted ward. She wasn't the star, in fact her name was down the bottom of the cast but she had charisma and star quality that made you remember her - in fact Tons named her "the search of the cast"!!Somehow Lucretia's issues are ironed out cute quickly but Stephen has his own issues - he has somehow become engaged to Mimi and has no concept how it happened!! The judge and his wife are over the moon about it as it has everytime been Mimi's dream and Stephen finds himself swept along with the enthusiasm. Fred can't be left out of this turgid tale - he has gambling debts and confesses all to Lucretia who in her effort to shield Stephen consents to go with Fred into city to raise the money!! But wait!! - Stephen has seen them together, thinks there is no hope for him as far as Lucretia goes and when she returns to say him of the true reason of her flight with Fred, Stephen has news of his own - he is actually married to Mimi!! Yes, that's right - there had been a hunting accident and thinking the judge may not live long, consents to marry Mimi so the old fellow can die happy!!Of course all this can't be allowed to continue and it paves the method for a spectacular climax, combining an immense forest fire and the bursting of a dam!! Norma pulls all this emoting off with aplomb and in the most natural acting style. She even convinces that she is in love with the stodgy Monte Blue who gotta be at least 20 years older than she, but it seems to come off as character worship!!
This film is an early outing by Jack Conway, before he directed such films as "Brown of Harvard", "The Smart Set", or "Our Modern Maidens". The film starts with an illustration of Lucretia Lombard's life--a girl (Irene Rich) married to a cockeyed, disabled old boy (Marc McDermott). Her only satisfaction is to be seen in public with the foolhardy young son of Reverend Winship (Alec B. Francis), Fred (John Roche). Next we are introduced to the glamorous, elfin ward of the reverend, Mimi, played by a hypnotic, young Norma Shearer. The elder son Steve (Monte Blue), is the apple of Norma Shearer's eye. After a night of partying with Fred, Mrs. Lombard returns home too worn-out to notice her husband has switched the cover of his sleeping pills with that of some aspirin. As a consequence, Mrs. Lombard gives her husband a lethal dose of opiates, so out of despair she calls Fred. Fred asks Steve, in the midst of being wooed by Mimi, for help. Fortunately Steve is the district attorney and arrives in time to prevent Lucretia from incriminating herself to the authorities. However, this possibility encounter sparks an undying flame of love in Steve for Mrs. Lombard, that only grows stronger as time goes by. Through some implausible plot twists it becomes clear to Mimi that her boy is a louse. I can't say you what happens next, as that is the slam-bang end of the movie. What I can say you is that if I were in Monte Blue's shoes I would have not picked Irene Rich over Norma Shearer (who made the film a watchable 6.0 for me)!
