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.

Gentle age 2000 60f 720p Нежный возраст - A tender age - (Lang: Russian)

Gentle age 2000 60f 720p Нежный возраст - A tender age - (Lang: Russian)

Ivan Gromov (Dmitry Soloviev) is the grandson of a military fighter pilot. The film explores the years of Ivan's adolescence through the prism of a trauma he incurred during an incident in the war when a parachute with a cartridge fell on his head. Subsequently, he is forced to tell the story of his life to an army psychiatrist. This device allows ironic distance on the part of the I-narrator Ivan to the events told in the ensuing retrospective of the film. Soloviev further parodies the events through the use of music and intertitles with high-browse quotes on everyday events. In the style of Assa and Black Rose, Soloviev here again manages to portray an accurate, yet ironic picture of the young generation in the period of the collapse of the Soviet Union. While in Assa and Black Rose he was referring to the present, he demonstrates in Tender Age his ability to use the same devices of film narrative to portray the past.

Crows 1994 Wrony 60f 480p 720p - (Lang: Hungarian, Polish, Sub: English, Russian)

Wrony (Crows) 1994 Polish (English Subtitles) 480p 720p

A crow is a raucous, abrasive, unloved bird, and an apt nickname for the lead character in Dorota Kedzierzawska's Crows -- a 9-year old girl who possesses all of the above characteristics (although the first two could be the result of the third). This short and simple film is beautiful not only in its emotionally-honest story but in its cinematography, which won an international award.

Crows is about the basic human need for companionship and love, and echoes the age-old theme that no person is an island. The Crow (as the protagonist is referred to) is routinely scorned by her schoolmates and ignored by a mother who's always too tired for her. Eventually, wanting some sort of family life of her own, the Crow kidnaps a 3-year old child and attempts to leave Poland by sea. Most of the film centers around the relationship between these two girls as the older one recognizes that being a parent entails more than giving and receiving love.

Director Dorota Kedzierzawska has done a marvelous job of coaxing unaffected performances from her young actors. The movie works because these children are believable. Their relationship is fraught with all the complications and complexities one might expect when a 9-year old with limited patience seeks an outlet for a wellspring of untapped love. Crows has a style perfectly wedded to its plot: fresh, bright, and touching.
