Emil i Lönneberga 1971 60f 720p Emil

Emil i Lönneberga 1971 60f 720p Emil - Swedish, Sub: English

Emil Svensson lives with his mother and father, little sister Ida, farmhand Alfred, and maid Lina on a picturesque farm in Småland. He is an unusually lively little boy, who just can't resist trying out every whim that enters into his white-haired head. Always with the best intentions in mind, because he is a good-hearted child, but often with catastrophic results, especially for his short-tempered father. As a result, Emil spends a lot of quality time in the wood shed carving wood figurines and waiting for Anton's temper to cool down. And the father's patience is certainly tried, as Emil gets his head stuck in the family's only soup bowl, hoists little Ida up the flag pole, and arranges a lavish christmas party for the poor.

Walkabout 1971 60f 720p

Walkabout 1971 60f 720p English

Two young siblings are stranded in the Australian Outback and are forced to cope on their own. They meet an Australian boy on "walkabout": a ritual separation from his tribe. A privileged British family consisting of a mother, a geologist father and an adolescent daughter and son, live in Sydney, Australia. Out of circumstance, the siblings, not knowing exactly where they are, get stranded in the Outback by themselves while on a picnic. They only have with them the clothes on their backs - their school uniforms - some meagre rations of nonperishable food, a battery-powered transistor radio, the son's satchel primarily containing his toys, and a small piece of cloth they used as their picnic drop-cloth. While they walk through the Outback, sometimes looking as though near death, they come across an Australian boy who is on his walkabout, a rite of passage into manhood where he spends months on end on his own living off the land. Their largest problem is not being able to verbally communicate. The boy does help them to survive, but doesn't understand their need to return to civilization, which may or may not happen based on what the Australian boy ends up doing.

The Boys of St. Vincent 1992 60f 480p English

The Boys of St. Vincent 1992 60f 480p English

The true story of boys being sexually abused at their orphanage ran by a religious community in Newfoundland. This movie is based on actual events, but it says it is not all about one specific incident. It documents St. Vincent's Orphanage in Canada, where many of the boys suffer physical, emotional, and sexual abuse at the hands of the brothers who run the facility. When the stories are surfaced and a police investigation is begun, religious and political groups work to silence the story to keep it from reaching the public.

Sommerjubel 1986 60f 480p Summer Fun

Sommerjubel 1986 60f 480p Summer Fun - Norwegian, Russian, Sub: English

Feelings like love and sexual curiosity are a part of growing up. The transformation from child to adolescent is an exciting time. In this joyful film we follow a group of 10-year old kids over a few weeks in the summer, where many things are starting to change in their lives. The film is based on a novel by Rune Belsvik. The story-line is quite simple – the summer adventures and discoveries of several 10-year-old kids. They go skinny dipping (isn’t it too cold for that in Norway?), play together and discover the wonders and confusions of growing up and changes in the way they perceive the opposite sex (girls are not that gross after all, are they?). As a separate plot line, we follow the father of a pair of brothers falling in love with their teacher. That provides for a sweet, but comic, parallel about falling in love at any age (the confusion and red cheeks seem to me to be permanent throughout life).

Voor een verloren soldaat 1992 60f 480p For A Lost Soldier

Voor een verloren soldaat 1992 60f 480p For A Lost Soldier - Dutch, Sub: English

Based on the autobiography by Rudi Van Dantzig, "For A Lost Soldier" takes place during the end of WW II in the Netherlands. It's the story of a young boy in Amsterdam whose parents send him to live in the country (Friesland) for his own safety. A family who had initially asked for a young girl ends up being young Jeroen's "adoptive" family. Jeroen is coming of age, being the tender age of 12, and is making discoveries on his own, especially his sexuality. He doesn't necessarily understand his feelings at first, until the arrival of the Canadian Liberators in 1945.
One particular soldier, Walt Cook, takes an interest in young Jeroen and a friendship blossoms between the two. Heit, Jeroen's adoptive father, sees that there is more to their friendship than meets the eye, and lets him know that he sees what's going on. This doesn't bother the other soldiers, however. In fact, as other soldiers are courting young girls in the village, so does Walt "court" young Jeroen. The two fall in love with each other, and a sexual relationship does indeed develop.
Perhaps it's Walt not wanting to face the hurt Jeroen will eventually face, but he fails to tell Jeroen that his platoon will be leaving. Jeroen is crushed when he realizes that Walt is gone the next day, and tries in vain as he searches the village for him.

Mitt liv som hund 1985 60f 720p My Life as a Dog

Mitt liv som hund 1985 60f 720p My Life as a Dog Swedish, Russian, Sub:English

In 1959 Sweden, young Ingemar (Anton Glanzelius) lives with his dying mother and his nasty older brother. He survives all of life's knocks by comparing himself to those who are worse off--such as Laika, the little Russian space dog who was rocketed to his death and had nothing to say in the matter. Ingemar begins to identify with Laika more and more as his mother's health deteriorates, at times dropping to all fours and baying at the moon. When his mother is advised to get some peace and quiet away from her children, Ingemar is sent to live with his loveable uncle and aunt. For the first time, the boy is surrounded by relatives and classmates who pose no threat and who genuinely like him. He even has a sexual awakening. When his mother dies, he no longer rationalizes his misfortunes by comparing himself to those less fortunate; from now on, he can conjure up pleasant memories of his summer away from home to sustain him through the hard times. My Life as a Dog (Mitt Liv Som Hund) is based on the autobiographical novel by Reidar Jonsson. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Tom and Lola 1990 60f 720p 480p Tom et Lola French, Sub:English

Their immune systems tragically damaged, Tom and Lola are a pair of beautiful children isolated since birth in hermetically sealed plastic bubbles. But isolated bubbles and distant hospital technicians cannot inhibit the beguiling spirit and supernatural bond between Tom and Lola , the indomitable protagonists of Bertrand Arthuy's enchanting French fantasy. Objects of endless medical probes, Tom and Lola watch TV and dream of a distant world - of ice and snow, penguins and whales, dogsled rides across the mountainous tundra. Their valiant efforts to breach their suffocating isolation -- a hilarious, often touching quest to reach Alaska -- form the heart and soul of this magical film. Time and again, Tom and Lola outsmart their keepers, escaping to explore a world where wonder and surprises exist around every corner. Miniature fugitives, they elude their captors in a race against time. Superbly mounted, touchingly scored and brilliantly observed, Tom and Lola is a visual treat for anyone who has ever appreciated - or forgotten - the charm and innocence of youth.
