Description: In this eerie, atmospheric tale, a young girl is on a train when she sees some folks she thinks she knows from her childhood. On arriving home, her husband says her that a certain countess has died. At that point, the movie cuts to a stage of the countess singing in a mausoleum while the visual photo of the graveyard's many tombstones passes before one's eyes. Back home, the husband -- also a "father-figure" -- is looking over his collection of wooden angels. Some time elapses, and he surreptitiously sees a thief come down through the chimney, steal some things, and then leave. To combat any recurrence, he builds an iron, escape-proof cage around the fireplace, and then goes away on a trip. When he comes back, he finds the thief dead in the cage. Thus far, the camera has only shown the husband in profile or from the back. Then there is other storyline about a young girl, with a spiteful, nasty mother, who is trying to cope with her own attraction to a man.

Special People #

Released 11/21/2008

Description: Enlisted to teach a class of wheelchair-users about filmmaking, the neurotic Jasper gets a tiny more than he bargained for. His charges seem to know more than he does about his subject; they're not impressed by his own heartfelt social realist oeuvre; and they meet his each recommendation with the blank indifference peculiar to the streetwise adolescent. Questions condescending outreach projects, self-defeating attitudes within the disabled community, and the vacuity of the movie business - all with a sly wink and a healthy supporting of self-parody.

Berliner Ballade #

Released 12/31/1948

Description: Long before he played the corpulent Goldfinger, German actor Gert Froebe was a scarecrow-skinny comedian. In Berliner Ballade, Froebe makes his screen debut as Otto, a feckless Everyman who tries to adjust to the postwar travails of his defeated nation. Stymied by black-market profiteers and government bureaucrats, Otto starts fantasizing about a happier life at the end of that ever-elusive rainbow. Director R. A. Stemmle doesn't have to strive for pathos: he merely territories his gangly star amidst the ruins of a bombed-out Berlin, and the mission is made for him. Filmed in 1948, Berliner Ballade was soon released in the U.S. as The Berliner.

Cielo sulla palude #

Released 8/3/1949

Description: Unlike most Italian movies of the 1940s, Augusto Genina's Cielo Sulla Palude opened in Venice rather than Rome. The film's American game was Heaven Over the Marshes, and indeed most of the storyline is set in the disease-ridden Pontine Marshes on the outskirts of Rome. This was the home of Maria Goretti, a pious young woman who was murdered by her would-be seducer. For reasons elucidated in the course of the film, Maria's short time on world made her worthy of Sainthood, which was now bestowed upon her shortly after the release of this film. Maria Goretti is well-played by Ines Orsini. Cielo Sulla Palude served as the arrival detail for director Augusto Genina, whose previous pro-fascist movies had caused him to be blacklisted after WW II.

Caccia tragica #

Released 11/4/1947

Description: Set amongst the Italian peasantry of WW2, Caccia Tragica (Tragic Chase) is set in motino when a truck loaded with cash targetted for farming projects is stolen by bandits. The local villagers set aside their petty political and private differences, banding together to capture the outlaws and recover the loot. The storyline takes a romantic detour by concentrating on the romance between two young folks caught in the middle between the pursuers and the pursued. At the time of its release, Caccia Tragica was perceived as a Communist tract (it was produced by the left-leaning National Association of Italian Partisans). This didn't prevent the movie from winning an award at the 1947 Venice Movie Festival, quite a coup for first-time director Giueseppe De Santis.

Starving in Suburbia Reviews:

Lifetime's recent film, Starving In Suburbia, aired last Saturday and was very nice to me. Laura Wiggins (who has already starred in 2 another Lifetime movies, "Girl, Positive" and "The Cheating Pact") did very well in this film as the insecure teen dancer who turns to anorexia to control her weight. Callie Thorne also does well in the role of the concerned mother trying to support her daughter. The premise of the film is that teen dancer Hannah (Wiggins) is shown a Thinspiration site by a fellow dancer friend, which is a community of folks who treat anorexia as a method of life and treat the act of being skinny like a religion. The scenes where Hannah "chats" with ButterflyAna seem a tiny unrealistic in the method they discuss their intentions, but since I haven't met anyone with anorexia, I might not know how seriously they take weight loss.I also applaud the movie's ending, which shows Hannah's wrestler brother, Leo (Brendan Meyer) is revealed to be anorexic after passing out during a match, being hospitalized, and dies. He is also revealed to be a person that tried to warn Hannah early on that ButterlyAna was a terrible influence on her. That was a really great twist, even though I dislike the father's reaction to the revelation ("He's a boy! He's an athlete!" Seriously? Are folks really still that naive?) Actually that I've gotten my praise out of the way, here's some negatives about the movie: 1. The title. I don't feel "Starving In Suburbia" is a nice game for it. The original game "Thinspiration" was a better title. 2. The sub-plot involving Hannah and her mate Kayden's boyfriend was cute unnecessary and should have been slash from the film entirely. It was dug into for about 2 mins and was then fully abandoned. 3. In the end, Hannah goes to see ButterflyAna (Izabella Miko) at her house and confronts her about causing her brother's death. How did Hannah search her? I don't think she would've posted her address on the website, and it seems method too convenient that she's within driving distance of Hannah's house. 4. Hannah's confrontation with ButterflyAna felt method too short and kinda shoe-horned in. It could have been at least a several mins longer. But nevertheless, this film was very nice and one of Lifetime's best.


This is a theme that girls in a society that fixates on being thin and pretty as a standard of beauty are all that matters, and anything to receive that perfection is necessary. Having survived both anorexia and bulimia, I similar to the characters need and eventual surrender to the voices haunting her inside her head, whether true or imagined. I was also surprised to search hundreds of these websites, active encouraging the desire to starve, to give hints on wasting away as a present of solidarity in a club that is teetering on the destruction of your body, and more importantly your soul. The acting is superb, and the theme is one that needs to be heard. Perfect through and through.


It seem like normal movie, but it now shows you how real it can be if you hold going and hide it from anyone and everyone. your actions will become deadlier as you stop doing what you need to do.This film was as nice as what it shows, and it showed. The acting was nice and the film was moving and quick paced. It was fun to watch and gave us a sight of the tiny things and large thing that can happen.The films focus on the dancer named Anna and her brother who is in a wrestler league competition. meal is important for both of them, and we begin to see some secrets that are left behind can cause very risky actions.6/10
