L'effrontée 720p 60f Charlotte & Lulu 1985 French, Sub: English

Charlotte (Gainsbourg) is being raised without a mother. She is only 13 but ready to be an adult. She meets an older boy and begins a relationship while teaching a young friend about life and learning the ropes herself.
This is the simple story of Charlotte (played with effortless ease and considerable verve by Charlotte Gainsbourg), a girl of thirteen or fourteen who is unhappy with her lot. The school holidays are approaching and she is not going away for a month - not until August. She has nothing to do. She hates her peer group, so doesn't hang with them. She hates the fact that no one at home takes her seriously. Her only friend is Lulu (Julie Glenn), a younger girl with a weak disposition.
On one of the last days of school she sees a video of Clara Bauman (Clothilde Baudon), a child prodigy. On the video, Clara is playing Beethoven's Third Piano Concerto. Charlotte finds out that she and Clara are the same age, and that Clara is coming to town to play a concert.

Numéro deux 1975 50f 540p Number two - French, Sub: English

An analysis of the power relations in an ordinary family. One of the high points of Jean-Luc Godard's challenging 1970s work, NUME'RO DEUX shows us the world of a working-class French family through the fracturing prism of layered and juxtaposed video images. Godard and fellow collaborator Anne-Marie Mie'ville focus on the shifting relationships of this family as they lead lives of not-so-quiet desperation in an austere, claustrophobic apartment. The resulting film is a dense tapestry that simultaneously examines various facets of family life in contemporary capitalist society, including materialism, old age, childhood trauma, sexual politics, and rape. The decision to film this story in such a daring fashion--splitting the screen into innumerable variations--only enhances Godard and Mie'ville's point. As we watch the young married couple (Sandrine Battistella and Pierre Oudrey) slowly drift apart from one another, the cold, distant images add even greater loss to their disintegrating relationship. In focusing on the more somber aspects of family life, the filmmakers have crafted a bold commentary on familial dysfunction, which at the same time works superficially as a visual tour-de-force of stunning originality.

Glasgow, summer, 1973. Dustmen are striking; bags of garbage add to the blight of council flats and a fetid canal. Ryan, who's about 12, drowns during a play fight with his neighbor, the jug-eared James. James runs home, a flat where he lives with his often-drunk da, his ma, and sisters, who live in hope of moving to newly-built council flats. The slice-of-life, coming-of-age story follows James as he tags along with the older lads; has a friendship with his quirky wee rodent-loving neighbor, Kenny; spends time with Margaret Anne, myopic, slightly older, the local sexual punching bag; and, has a moment or two of joy. The strike may end, but is there any way out for James?

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.
