Description: Thomas Arslan's second detail movie and part of his Berlin-trilogy is a slow-paced milieu study of German-Turkish youth in Berlin-Kreuzberg.

His journeys start on the roads of Berlin, where the shy brunette Daniel meets the blonde Clemens, who invites him home for coffee and offers him a zone to stay. Later Daniel is living with Clemens and believes he has found the love of his life. The two test to imitate a bourgeois marriage and its lifestyle. But after four months of tedium, Daniel is cruised by a rich older boy who entices him to transport into his villa, where he encounters a group of older gays, pretentious in their appreciations of fine art and classical music, who fawn over him.
Description: Harris, a 16 year old man spends his day skateboarding aimlessly around Athens with his friends. Vassilis, a middle aged cop, is frustrated with his dead-end job and crammed in his tiny apartment with his family.
Description: Sohail is an ambitious law undergraduate who signs up with MI5 and, eager to enjoy a part in protecting British security, starts an investigation into a terrorist cell. His sister Nasima is a medical student in Leeds who becomes increasingly alienated and angered by Britain's foreign and domestic privacy after witnessing at first hand the relentless targeting of her Muslim neighbours and peers. With action set in Pakistan, Eastern Europe, London and Leeds, both feature-length episodes feature a tragic sequence of happenings from two distinct perspectives. At the heart of this thought-provoking drama is a revealing examination of British Muslim life under actual anti-terror legislation. Britz ultimately asks whether the laws we think are making us safer, are now putting us in greater danger.

Dealer Oskar can persuade them to smuggle drugs in their stomachs on plane to Fresh York - although both know of the risks, since Marina's sister died on a related journey. However on comeback at the airport in Fresh York they present nerves and all their dreams begin to shatter.
Description: This movie captures the essence of Jon Bon Jovi, the lead singer of one of the prime users in the legion of pop-metal bands that took '80s radio by storm. Most of the movie is a short narrative loosely based on the songs from his 1997 solo album Destination Anywhere, and details Jon Bon Jovi and Demi Moore as a young couple struggling with alcoholism and the death of their young child.
Description: The theme of the delicious Hungarian fantasy movie "A Very Moral Night," made in 1977 and actually testing at the Public Theater, should well be innocence, even if the action does take zone in a bordello. It is a nice bordello, so sweet and wholesome that it seems a zone of pure beauty and Eden-like charm.
Description: A Hungarian band plays American rock & roll and blues hits with nice enthusiasm and passion, but success seems to avoid them. TV and radio don't enjoy their songs, sometimes even their crowd just sits and sips beer. Something gotta be done, and the band's leader (Lóránt Schuszter) comes up with the large idea: write and enjoy songs for the folks about themselves and not about some exotic, but too distant people's life. "We transport from Tobacco Street to Retek street" With the remains of the band and a second singer (Gyula Deák "Bill") they search what they failed to present folks before. The rich fresh sound can finally translate the spirit of blues and rock much more than words from any dictionaries could, this is the Köbánya-blues.
Description: "Ripacsok" is a nice film with nice soundtrack, acting, cinematography, direction, etc. The globe of "artists", hamming actors, nice clowns and terrible clowns... A special film in many ways. Pál Sándor is a very nice hungarian director, watch his films (especially the slightly better "Régi idõk focija") if you have the chance.

Description: Like Light Physical Injuries, The Wall Driller explores the compensatory machismo of Hungary’s official leading class. Szomjas’s flashiest, most problematic movie says the sad tale of a proletarian malcontent ensconced in a monstrously depressing housing project who—even less effectually than the heroes of Bald-Dog Rock—attempts to change his life. Buying a power drill and slinging it across his shoulder like the anti-hero of a spaghetti western, he turns entrepreneur, boring holes in his neighbors’ walls so that they can hang mirrors or pictures. The metaphor is played for max smarmy innuendo, particularly once the wall driller gets mixed up with the prize member of a local prostitution ring staffed mainly by girls on maternity leave. (Nothing if not topical, the movie followed by less than a year the sensational trial of the “Cuki Cuties,” a bevy of hookers who operated out of an espresso bar on the Yugoslav border.

He thinks he can purchase everyone and everything but at the end he gotta face that he can't purchase life. A must-see for everyone. Casting involves some of the best Hungarian actors. The storyline takes zone in the eighth district of Budapest focusing on the store zone on Teleki square which is still working. The film includes some archive footage of true war during the revolution.

They have to deliver an necessary letter to Marquis De Surenne and protect a young lady named Yvonne Barre through the desert and lead her to a secure place. Although these three boys are outlaws , they test to do everything to support folks who are in need. This is a very exciting ebook with the special humor of Jenő Rejtő.
Description: It is 1989, the year of the demise of socialism in eastern Europe. Nevertheless, the one theme of Junk Film does not refer to this historical moment of high ideals, quite the contrary, the wild, burlesque of a motif-mozaic seems merely to stick it’s tongue out at the arrogant users of politics who have their heads stuck in the clouds. The movie rudely points out the mystery and unapproachability surrounding the every-day existence of politics. The stage is a greasy, falling-down block of a pub named the Gólya and its instant surroundings.
Description: Via the Fresh York Times: "...the movie has the gratis form of the agitprop films made by Jean-Luc Godard in the late 1960's and early 1970's. At the center of it is the tiny fictional tale of Raffael, who stands for everything rotten in the newly liberalized Hungarian society. He is the owner of an amazingly profitable video store in Budapast and, it seems, a speculator in currencies."
Description: Jo March and her husband Professor Bhaer operate the Plumfield School for terrible boys.

Under the rule of an oppressive monarchy backed by military force, the miners often resort to stealing gold to compensate for their meager wages. Workers are subjected to strip searches and are forced to take laxatives by the often brutal guards and inspectors as they look for stolen gold, and Jacob raises his vocal objections over the treatment of his fellow workers.
Description: In modern-day Berlin (1987), Frau Kutowski goes insane, believing herself to be the (real-life) notorious Anita Berber, a nude art dancer/drug addict/scandalous figure of post-WWI Berlin. (Berber died of tuberculosis in 1928, having achieved significant success and recognition throughout the dance world.) Frau Kutowski is placed in a mental hospital, where in her own mind she acts out Berber's final days, including in her fantasies the hospital's staff and patients, to represent Anita's mates and associates.
Description: This is a very theatrical version, full of sound & fury, histrionics and large arm movements. Cynical audiences might not purchase into it, but if you were to go back to the early 1600s this is probably the method you'd see it. The plot of Macbeth, if you were snoozing during high school English class, is about an 11th century Scottish fighter who hatches a dubious plan to steal the throne. Spurred on by his wife Lady Macbeth, who wears the pants in the household, he finds himself swiftly slipping down the path of evil.

I saw this first movie by Ackerman on french channel Arte and I was fascinated by its simplicity of conception and execution. Ackerman gives a wonderfully quiet example of small, no-budget, private short movie which can be a lesson for any young and new student of movie or anyone with a nice passion( but not much means) for film-making and recording the globe with a camera. young Ackerman plays in the movie and from the first mins you receive the mood and the means together as the soundtrack of the movie is solely composed of constant humming of some tune by -supposedly- the main hero who is a lonely woman living in an apartment. This is one of the most ingenious approaches to the composition of movie melody I have ever heard! and you wonder if it has been repeated again. We follow the woman entering the building, up the stairs and into her tiny kitchen and very later realize that we will only see HER. She keeps humming and even makes appropriate noises when attending to things in the kitchen. The obsession with the kitchen leaves one wondering " Can a kitchen really drive someone mad?". Here domestic life of a lonely girl seems like an unbearable and crushing prison with no hope of redemption( a theme that Ackerman returns to it soon with nice force). When the women cooks and cleans and gradually makes a mess of everything you receive a comical view of quiet breakdown rarely seen. Fixed camera position is in accord with a claustrophobic mood and also relates to a documentary style camera which the movie emulates to some extent. This is a movie about what we may -and usually will- call domestic hell ,though it never loses sight of intrinsic humor of the situation. I love Ackerman's performance and her determination to be a filmmaker, standing on her own feet and making an amateur movie a must-see.
It's interesting to search out that the movie that made Chantal Akerman wish to create movies was Pierrot le fou (she talks about it on an interview from the Criterion collection, simple to search online); she was 15, didn't think movies were art and only knew vaguely of the 'auteur' theory. Like for many future filmmakers, Godard blew up all the notions for what a movie should look like or be, and a film like Pierrot is one that I'd imagine would strike up a 15 year old's imagination. Thus we have her first film, English game 'Blow Up My Town', and it's both a tribute (at the end) to Pierrot, while also being an unintentional use run for Jeanne Dielman, her 1975 masterpiece.This is very... student film-y. It sounds shallow to described it that way, but that's what this is. It's following a young girl (Akerman plays the girl) who comes to her apartment, puts away some groceries, cooks noodles, and proceeds to tape her door and windows in so she can... clean, and eat, and then shine her shoes and dance a little. It has no concrete story, and I'm sure Akerman would've been horrified if it had any conventional storyline to it. It's a portrait of a young girl coming undone, but in a method that is type of playful - the sound results emphasize this, with a type of 'la-la' singing from time to time, this couched between some intentionally awkward unique results - but not much more.I did play watching it, but for what it was: a glimpse into what a filmmaker wants to discover in about 10 minutes. Its ending is type of low - is there no another method than how this woman is going to go out - but I liked how rough and odd it was. It's a great tiny short that finds someone at 18 trying out this thing named movie equipment on something that can be done easily: take an apartment (I wonder if it was Akerman's own) and just have some wonky, self-indulgent expression into female boredom, alienation and anxiety. 6.5/10
After having seen "Jeanne Dielman", I can clearly see how nice of a filmmaker Chantal Akerman is, and, although I disliked this film, I'm still highly interested in her another works. However, this is one of the worst movies I've seen recently.Yes, it was her first film, so I shouldn't be too angry, of course. She made it at only the age of 18, so I probably shouldn't be expecting "Citizen Kane", but it was still a pain to sit through! It felt pretentious, nonsensical, and, overall, the movie was really annoying. Actually I'm sure there's folks out there telling I didn't receive it, and that I could never watch Chantal Akerman's work because of my views on this, but, there is not necessarily any current meaning here. With "Jeanne Dielman", folks (including myself) can create variety of theories and such on the film. I mean, it is a movie that has been analyzed time and time again! Here, I just don't see anything!I don't know, maybe I'm stupid, but it seems like this isn't a very nice film.
