Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars directed by D.A. Pennebaker



(WIKI) Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars is a 1973 documentary and concert movie by D.A. Pennebaker. It features David Bowie and his backing group The Spiders from Mars performing at the Hammersmith Odeon, July 3, 1973. The DVD release was later retitled Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars: The Motion Picture

Pennebaker had been asked to come to London and film just a few songs but when he saw the first of the two London shows he realized that "there was a full-length film here asking to be made". Though he had only scant knowledge of Bowie's music, apart from Space Oddity, he was impressed by the star's onstage charisma and the range of his songs and quickly prepared to shoot the entire second gig, without knowing that it would include a dramatic final coup. Jeff Beck participated on three songs (two of them forming a medley) midway through the concert but was edited out from the final cut at his own wish.The expanded version of "The Width of a Circle" was shortened by a few minutes for the soundtrack on vinyl and CD.

The film was shown a few times at festivals in late 1973 and provoked strong interest and favourable reactions, but then disappeared from view until 1983, when it was released on home video accompanied by a soundtrack double album. Evidently it became a casualty first of Bowie's rapid image changes which left Ziggy and glam rock behind and then of the rupture between Bowie and MainMan in early 1975; after that point Bowie was reluctant to release or promote any new recordings dating from before Young Americans as he would have to give half the income from any such recordings to MainMan up to the end of 1982.

Only in recent years has the film become available for regular cinema presentations; for many years it was a home video exclusive.

Bowie had taken the stage persona of "Ziggy Stardust", a science fiction based, theatrical, enigmatic, androgynous character and produced two albums during this period. The evening of July 3 was the last show in the English concert tour promoting Bowie's 1973 album Aladdin Sane and the 60th gig in a tour of Britain that started on May 12, though an American tour was already being booked for the autumn. Very few in Bowie's entourage knew of his decision to drop the Ziggy persona and cancel performing for a while; in the band only Mick Ronson had been told a few days before the final night.

At the end of the evening, aptly just before the song "Rock 'n' Roll Suicide", Bowie announced that, Not only is this the last show of the tour, but it's the last show that we'll ever do. The phrasing was deliberately ambiguous, but most of the audience and many London newspapers and magazines took it to mean that Bowie was retiring from music. In fact, he had killed off his Ziggy persona but not his music career.

Гиперболоид инженера Гарина, Giperboloid inzhenera Garina (The Hyperboloid of Engineer Garin) directed by Aleksandr Gintsburg (pyc. st eng.)

The Hyperboloid of Engineer Garin (Russian: Гиперболоид инженера Гарина, translit. Giperboloid inzhenera Garina) also abberivated as Engineer Garin is a black-and-white 1965 Soviet science fiction film based on Aleksey Tolstoy's novel The Garin Death Ray

The Garin Death Ray also known as The Death Box and The Hyperboloid of Engineer Garin (Russian: Гиперболоид инженера Гарина) is a science fiction novel by the noted Russian author Aleksey Nikolayevich Tolstoy written in 1926--1927. It was one of the first science fiction novels in Russian. Vladimir Nabokov considered it Tolstoy's finest fictional work.

The "hyperboloid" in its title is not a geometrical surface but a "death ray"-laser-like device (thought up by the author many decades before lasers were invented) that the main protagonist, engineer Garin, used to fight his enemies and try to become a world dictator. "Hyperboloids" of different power capability differ in their effect. The device uses two hyperbolic mirrors to concentrate light rays in a parallel beam. Most "hyperboloids" can destroy military ships on the horizon, and those of less power can only injure people and cut electric cables on walls of rooms.

A translation of the passage describing the device:
The rays of light, falling on the inner surface of the hyperboloidal mirror, converge in a single point, the focus of the hyperbola. This is a known fact. But here is the novelty: in the focus of the hyperboloidal mirror, I place a second hyperbola (shaped, as it were, inside out) -- a hyperboloid of revolution, made from a refractory, ideally polishable mineral -- shamonite -- endless supplies of which are found in the north of Russia. What, then, becomes of the rays?

The rays, converging in the focus of mirror (A), fall on the surface of hyperboloid (B) and reflect from it in a mathematically parallel fashion -- in other words, the hyperboloid (B) concentrates all the rays into one beam, a "filament of light" of any thickness desired.

There are two scientific blunders here:
The usage "hyperboloids" is wrong: it is the paraboloid that collects parallel rays into its focal point, a property exploited in parabolic reflectors.

That effect only happens if the incoming light is exactly parallel.

The film adaptations of the novel were released in the Soviet Union in 1965 (The Hyperboloid of Engineer Garin) and 1973 (Failure of Engineer Garin).

Москва слезам не верит; Moskva slezam ne verit (Moscow Does not Believe in Tears) directed by Vladimir Menshov (pyc. st eng.)


(WIKI) «Москва слезам не верит» — советский художественный фильм. В 1981 году фильм удостоен кинопремии «Оскар» как лучший фильм на иностранном языке. Лидер проката 1980 года в СССР (около 90 млн зрителей). Премьера фильма состоялась 11 февраля 1980 года.

Москва, конец пятидесятых годов. В столичном общежитии живут три провинциальные подруги. Их судьбы складываются именно так, как предполагает характер каждой из девушек. Скромная Антонина начинает работать маляром, она выходит замуж за рабочего-москвича, растит троих детей, любима и любит мужа. Самоуверенной моднице Людмиле Москва представляется лотереей, в которой она должна выиграть своё особенное счастье, и замуж она планирует выйти как минимум за богатого, знаменитого москвича («Полюбить — так королеву! Проиграть — так миллион!»). Ради осуществления своих грандиозных планов Людмила готова на всё. Она выходит замуж за известного хоккеиста, но муж её не выдерживает бремени славы и спивается. Людмила остается, в общем-то, ни с чем. Екатерина, которая пошла на поводу у Людмилы и вместе с ней выдавала себя за дочь богатых москвичей, горько расплачивается за свою авантюру. Катя полюбила телеоператора Родиона Рачкова, а он, когда узнал, что у нее нет квартиры в элитном доме (Людмила и Катерина всего лишь присматривали за жилищем родственника Екатерины, уехавшего с женой на курорт), её, беременную, бросил. Девушка одна растит дочь, заканчивает институт (МХТИ им. Д. И. Менделеева), работает на заводе и, наконец, становится директором крупного предприятия. К ней приходит любовь, и её любимый такой же сильный человек, как и она сама. И оказалось, что спасти любовь от собственных ошибок очень трудно. Екатерина наступает на те же «грабли»: снова она выдаёт себя за ту, кем не является. Её новый знакомый Гоша узнаёт о том, что на самом деле Екатерина — директор. Готовую развалиться будущую «ячейку общества» спасают друзья Кати: муж Антонины объяснил Гоше, что Екатерина солгала не потому, что не уважала его, а потому, что боялась не понравиться любимому человеку, привыкшему быть в этой жизни первым.

Moscow Does not Believe in Tears (Russian: Москва слезам не верит; translit. Moskva slezam ne verit) is a 1980 Soviet film made by Mosfilm. It was written by Valentin Chernykh and directed by Vladimir Menshov. The leading roles were played by Menshov's wife Vera Alentova and by Aleksey Batalov. The film won an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1980.

The movie is set in Moscow from the late 1950s to the late 1970s. It tells a story about three provincial girls who come to Moscow. They are settled in the same room in a dormitory and eventually become friends. Katerina, played by Vera Alentova, strives to earn her degree and also works hard at a factory. She house-sits an apartment for rich Moscow relatives for a while, and her friend Lyudmila (Irina Muravyova) convinces her to pretend that they are the daughters of a rich professor, in order to seduce intelligent, wealthy Muscovite men. At a party thrown by Lyudmila in the apartment, she meets a man Rudolf (Yuri Vasilyev) who works as a cameraman for a television channel. He eventually forces himself on Katerina, resulting in her becoming pregnant. Rudolf refuses to marry her or acknowledge the child as his own. This leaves Katerina alone with a baby - Rudolf's mother tells her to leave her son alone and offers her money, which Katerina refuses.

The movie shows Katerina with tears in her eyes setting her alarm clock in a dormitory where she just arrived after bearing her daughter, Alexandra (played by Natalya Vavilova), then takes a 20-year leap forward in time. Katerina is then shown waking up to the sound of an alarm clock in her own apartment. She still hasn't married, but she is now the director of a large factory. She has a lover, an older married man named Volodya (Oleg Tabakov), but she still feels that something is missing in her life.

One evening when Katerina is returning home from her friend's dacha in the countryside on a train, she meets a man named Gosha (Aleksey Batalov). Soon after they start seeing each other, but an unexpected return of Rudolf seems to ruin everything. Rudolf is part of a news crew that arrives at Ekaterina's factory to do a report on the factory's great production rate. He does not recognize his ex-lover at first but when he does he wants to make amends and meet his daughter. Katerina doesn't let him call or visit their home. But Rudolf comes against her will when Gosha, Katerina and Alexandra are having dinner. He tells them about the interview, and at that moment Gosha finds out that Katerina is a director and that her salary must be bigger than his own. Being a man that can't let a woman be on top of him in any way, Gosha gets upset and leaves.

For several days he is nowhere to be seen, he doesn't call and doesn't come to Katerina, until at last she and her former dormitory roommates gather in her apartment and decide that they have to do something. Nikolai (Boris Smorchkov), the husband of Antonina, sets out to find Gosha. He finds him drinking and after getting drunk with him he convinces Gosha to return to Katerina.

The final scene of the movie is set in the kitchen of Katerina's flat. Gosha eats soup, while Katerina watches him with tears in her eyes. Gosha asks "What's wrong?" Katerina replies "I've been looking for you for so long". After a moment of thought Gosha says "Eight days." Katerina says "No," and repeats, "I've been looking for you for so long."

Кавказская пленница, или Новые приключения Шурика (Kidnapping, Caucasian Style) directed by Leonid Gaidai (pyc. st eng.)


(WIKI) «Кавка́зская пле́нница, и́ли Но́вые приключе́ния Шу́рика» — кинофильм Леонида Гайдая, снятый в 1966 году. Второй фильм с Шуриком в качестве главного персонажа и последний фильм (из тех, что снял Леонид Гайдай) с участием тройки Трус — Балбес — Бывалый (Вицин — Никулин — Моргунов). Премьера фильма состоялась в Москве в понедельник 3 апреля 1967 года одновременно в 53 столичных кинотеатрах.

Лента входит в число 50 лучших семейных картин согласно опросу пользователей IMDb, крупнейшего Интернет-портала, посвящённого кино.
Содержание

Видя популярность «Операции „Ы“», Яков Костюковский и Морис Слободской подали 15 июня 1965 года заявку в «Мосфильм» на съёмку нового фильма — продолжения приключений Шурика. Сценарий нового фильма назывался «Шурик в горах» и состоял из двух частей: первая часть — «Кавказская пленница» — повествовала о студентке Нине, приехавшей к родственникам на Кавказ, где её похищает местный начальник Охохов; вторая часть — «Снежный человек и другие» — повествовала о научной экспедиции, ищущей в горах снежного человека, за которого выдавали себя Трус, Балбес и Бывалый с целью скрыться от милиции. В итоге Шурик и Нина должны были их разоблачить. 26 октября, когда сценарно-редакционная коллегия собралась вновь, сценарий вращался уже лишь вокруг похищения девушки. Данная версия сценария была утверждена.

Несмотря на это, возникли некоторые сложности с актёрами. Юрий Никулин и Евгений Моргунов считали многое в сценарии натянутым и на этом основании изначально отказались участвовать в съёмках. Впрочем, режиссёру фильма Леониду Гайдаю удалось их переубедить, обещая совместно переделать сценарий в сторону улучшения[2]. На роль Нины долгое время не могли найти подходящую актрису — пришлось провести более пятисот фотопроб. В итоге выбор остановили на Наталье Варлей. Ввиду того, что до начала карьеры актрисы она работала в цирке канатоходкой, ей хорошо давались трюковые сцены. Однако в её случае проблему составляли игровые сцены из-за отсутствия актёрских навыков.

В случае Саахова возникли расхождения во взглядах на образ персонажа между Леонидом Гайдаем и исполняющим роль Саахова Владимиром Этушем. Если Этуш воспринимал своего персонажа всегда серьёзным человеком, в частности, не понимающим, как могли отвергнуть его ухаживания и облить вином, то Гайдай хотел сделать гротескный образ.

В процессе разработки сценарий многократно изменялся цензурой. Так, пришлось видоизменить фразу Труса «да здравствует советский суд, самый гуманный суд в мире!» на «да здравствует наш суд, самый гуманный суд в мире!», так как первый вариант посчитали издевательством над советским судом. Также пришлось вырезать заставку, в которой Трус пишет на заборе «Х», Бывалый приписывает «у», а после появления милиционера Балбес дописывает «дожественный фильм».

И хотя пробный показ ещё не утверждённого Госкино фильма имел огромный успех, картину, тем не менее, выпускать в прокат не решались. Однако фильм посмотрел Леонид Ильич Брежнев и поблагодарил за хорошую кинокомедию, что решило судьбу фильма. В итоге в прокате 1967 года фильм занял первое место, и за год его посмотрело 76,54 млн зрителей.

A she-prisoner of the Caucasus, or Shurik's New Adventures (Russian: Кавказская пленница, или Новые приключения Шурика) (translit. Kavkazskaya plennitsa, ili Novie priklucheniya Shurika), also known as Kidnapping, Caucasian Style, is a Soviet comedy film dealing with the theme of bride kidnapping.

The title is a humorous interpretation of the Alexander Pushkin poem, "The Prisoner of the Caucasus", and Leo Tolstoy's adaptation of the poem to a short story. The film was directed by Leonid Gaidai. It is the last film featuring the trio "Coward" (Georgy Vitsin), "Fool" (Yuri Nikulin) and "Experienced" (Yevgeny Morgunov), an act similar to the Three Stooges. The premiere of the film took place in Moscow on April 1, 1967.
Contents

A kind, yet naïve, anthropology student named Shurik (Demyanenko) goes to the Caucasus to learn the ancient customs of the locals. While there, he falls in love with Nina (Natalya Varley). However, Nina's uncle (Frunzik Mkrtchyan) sells his niece without her knowledge, and arranges to have Nina kidnapped by the eccentric trio: Coward, Fool and Experienced. After a failed attempt, the uncle decides to trick Shurik into helping with the kidnapping, telling him that it is a traditional custom, and that it was Nina's own wish. Shurik goes through with the kidnapping but, after working through his initial confusion, enlists the help of a friend to eventually rescue Nina from her captors.

Exit Through The Gift Shop directed by Banksy (eng. st čes.)



(WIKI) Exit Through the Gift Shop: A Banksy Film is a film directed by Banksy that tells the story of Thierry Guetta, a French immigrant in Los Angeles, and his obsession with street art. The film charts Guetta's constant documenting of his every waking moment on film, from a chance encounter with his cousin, the artist Invader, to his introduction to a host of street artists with a focus on Shepard Fairey and Banksy, whose anonymity is preserved by obscuring his face and altering his voice, to Guetta's eventual fame as a street artist himself. The film premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival on 24 January, 2010. It is narrated by Rhys Ifans. The music is by Geoff Barrow. It includes Richard Hawley's "Tonight The Streets Are Ours".[1] The film was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature at the 83rd Academy Awards.

There has been debate over whether the documentary is genuine or a mockumentary.

Thierry Guetta is a French immigrant living in Los Angeles, making a comfortable living with his vintage clothing shop. He also has a strange obsession of carrying a camera anywhere he goes, constantly filming his surroundings. On a holiday in France, he discovers his cousin is Invader, an internationally known street artist. Thierry finds this fascinating, and accompanies Invader and his friends, including the artists Monsieur André and Zevs on their nocturnal adventures, documenting their activities. A few months later, Invader visits Thierry in LA, and arranges a meeting with Shepard Fairey. Thierry continues filming Fairey's activities even after Invader has left home for France. While Fairey is confused by Thierry's enthusiasm, Thierry states that he wishes to make a complete documentary about street art, and the two cross the nation, shooting other artists at work, including Seizer, Neck Face, Sweet Toof, Cyclops, Ron English, Dotmasters, Swoon, Azil, Borf and Buffmonster. What Guetta fails to tell Fairey is that he has no plan to compile his footage into an actual film, and indeed never looks at his footage.

Guetta continues to hear more about Banksy - a prominent and particularly secretive artist. His attempts to contact Banksy meet with failure, until one day Banksy visits LA without his usual accomplice, who is refused entry to the US. Stuck in LA without a guide, Banksy contacts Fairey, who calls Guetta. Guetta becomes Banksy's guide in LA, later following him back to England, winning the privilege to film Banksy on his home turf - a feat that confuses Banksy's crew. Banksy, however, sees the opportunity of documenting street art, which he recognises as having a "short life span", and after Guetta aids him in recording both production, deployment and crowd reactions of his "Murdered Phone-box" piece, Banksy asks him to film the preparations of his "Barely Legal" show. The two become friends, as Guetta provides Banksy with some relief from his anonymity. Returning to LA, Guetta becomes bored, and eventually ends up producing his own stickers and decals and putting them up in the city.

Banksy's show is being prepared in Skid Row, Los Angeles, and while in LA, Banksy has the idea of deploying a Guantanamo Bay detainee doll in Disneyland. He visits the location and places the doll while Guetta films. A few minutes later, however, the rides stop, and the park's security system catches Guetta, who is taken to an interrogation room, while Banksy switches clothes and blends into the crowd. During interrogation, Guetta refuses to admit any wrongdoing, and when allowed a phone call, covertly alerts Banksy to his situation. When forced by the security, he quickly destroys the evidence in his camera, but stashes the videotape in his sock and is eventually let go, much to the amazement of Banksy who then says he trusts him implicitly because of the incident.

A few days later, "Barely Legal" opens, and becomes an overnight mainstream success. Street art prices begin to rocket in auction houses. Banksy is both surprised and disillusioned by the sudden hype surrounding street art, and urges Guetta to finish his supposed documentary. Guetta begins to edit together the several thousand hours of footage, and produces a film titled Life Remote Control. The result is 90 minutes of distorted fast cutting about seemingly random themes. Banksy questions Guetta's ability as a filmmaker, deeming his product "unwatchable", but realises the street art footage itself is valuable. Banksy decides to have a shot at producing a film himself. To make sure that Guetta remains occupied, Banksy suggests he make his own art show.

"I think the joke is on... I don’t know who the joke is on, really. I don’t even know if there is a joke."

— Banksy's former spokesman Steve Lazarides

Guetta happily accepts the assignment, adopting the name "Mr. Brainwash", putting up street art in the city and six months later, re-mortgaging his business to afford renting copious equipment and a complete production team to create pieces of art under his supervision. He rents a former CBS studio to prepare his first show, "Life Is Beautiful", and scales up his production to something much larger than Banksy suggested, but with little focus. When Guetta breaks his foot after falling off a ladder, Banksy realises that the show may well become a trainwreck, and sends a few professionals to help Guetta out. While the producers take care of the practical side of the show, Guetta spends his time on more publicity, asking support from both Fairey and Banksy, eventually taping up huge billboards with their quotes, and ultimately ending up on the cover of L. A. Weekly. Preparation is seriously behind schedule, and Guetta's production team insists that he must make decisions — yet Guetta spends his time hyping up and marketing his work for tens of thousands of dollars. Eight hours before the opening, paintings are still missing from the walls, and since Guetta is busy giving interviews, the eventual layout of the show is decided by the crew itself.

Despite all this, however, the show becomes a raging success with the crowd, and after the first week of the show, Guetta sells almost a million dollars worth of art, with his pieces showing in galleries all around the world, to the utter confusion of both Fairey and Banksy. In an ending montage, Guetta insists that time will tell whether he is a real artist or not.

Водитель для Веры, Voditel dlya Very (A Driver for Vera) directed by Pavel Chukhraj (pyc. st eng, serb.)



(WIKI) «Водитель для Веры» — украино-российский кинофильм 2004 года. Режиссёр Павел Чухрай.

Действие фильма происходит в СССР, в 1960-е годы. Сержант Виктор молод и статен, он смотрит на жизнь просто и прагматично; он готов на всё, чтобы достичь главной своей цели — сделать карьеру. Пока удача способствует ему: его, курсанта привилегированной кремлёвской роты, крупный армейский генерал берёт своим личным водителем.

Генерал-лейтенант Серов рассчитывает женить его на своей неудачливой дочери Вере-хромоножке. Но нового водителя Виктора это не слишком смущает. Он вырос сиротой в детском доме, в нищете, и за шанс пробиться «в высшие сферы» готов жениться на дочери генерала. А Вера не замечает холодный расчёт с его стороны, привязывается к нему, строит семейные планы. Да и сам Виктор, постоянно заботясь о Вере, меняется к ней — сострадание, нежность, надежда на будущее благополучие переполняют его.

Странный их роман развивается на генеральской даче в Крыму под Севастополем. Ласковое солнце черноморского побережья, музыка, мода, быт и развлечения 1960-х годов соседствуют с тайной борьбой за сферы влияния в государственной «машине». В этой борьбе жизнь генерала, его дочери и только что родившегося ребёнка, судьба водителя Виктора станут всего лишь «разменной монетой».

В финале, когда Виктор стоит на пороге быстрой армейской карьеры, он неожиданно жертвует всем, идёт на смертельный риск ради спасения ребёнка и берёт на себя ответственность за его судьбу.

A Driver for Vera (Ukrainian: Vodiy dlya Viry, Водій для Віри, Russian: Voditel dlya Very, Водитель для Веры) is a 2004 Ukrainian film directed by Pavel Chukhrai. The majority of the production of the film was based in Russia, which resulted in the Russian dialogue in the film and would later prove detrimental to the film's prospects at the Academy Awards.

The plot of the film is set during the Khrushchev Thaw in the former Soviet Union, and concentrates on a young cadet in the Red Army named Viktor (Igor Petrenko) who becomes a chaffeur for his general (Bohdan Stupka) and begins a relationship with the general's daughter, Vera (Alena Babenko). Viktor becomes involved in a plot by the KGB, and a KGB agent (Andrei Panin) pushes Viktor to spy on the general for their purposes.

BBC: Only Fools and Horses - "Video Nasty" directed by Martin Shardlow


(WIKI) Only Fools and Horses is a BAFTA winning British television sitcom, created and written by John Sullivan, and made and broadcast by the BBC. Seven series were originally broadcast on BBC One in the United Kingdom between 1981 and 1991, with sporadic Christmas specials until 2003. Episodes are regularly repeated on GOLD.

Set in Peckham in south London, it stars David Jason as ambitious market trader Derek "Del Boy" Trotter, Nicholas Lyndhurst as his younger brother Rodney, and Lennard Pearce as their ageing grandfather (later replaced by Buster Merryfield as their Uncle Albert). Backed by a strong supporting cast, the series chronicles their highs and lows in life, in particular their attempts to get rich.

After a relatively slow start the show went on to achieve consistently high ratings, and the 1996 episode "Time On Our Hands" holds the record for the highest UK audience for a sitcom episode, attracting 24.3 million viewers (over a third of the population). Critically and popularly acclaimed, the series received numerous awards, including recognition from BAFTA, the National Television Awards and the Royal Television Society, as well as winning individual accolades for both Sullivan and Jason. It was voted Britain's Best Sitcom in a 2004 BBC poll.

Rodney's Art Class is given a £10,000 grant to make a film spotlighting the local community, but first he has to avoid the scheming intentions of Mickey Pearce and Del Boy. Whilst Rodders suffers from writer's block, Del provides him with inspiration and a tale of a killer Rhino escaping from London Zoo and laying waste to innocent victims on the streets of the city. Rodney immediately points out the flaws in the logic behind the plot, and Del leaves him to it. But without telling Rodney, Del has already arranged for Mickey to head down to the town hall to film different couples' weddings at £50 a time – and he has also managed to persuade half the neighbourhood to pay £10 for the opportunity of becoming a movie extra. To make things worse, Mickey arranges for the lovely Amanda to pop round the Trotters' flat in her nurse's uniform and begin filming a 'blue movie' called Night Nurse, which is due for its premiere in the back room of The Nag's Head.

Новый Гулливер, Novyy Gullivyer (The New Gulliver) directed by Aleksandr Ptushko & A. Vanichkin (pyc. st eng.)


(WIKI) «Новый Гулливер» (1935) — советская детская анимационно-игровая сатирическая комедия Александра Птушко по мотивам романа Джонатана Свифта.

Первый фильм, в котором центральный игровой персонаж действует в художественном пространстве, целиком созданном средствами объёмной мультипликации.

В картине было использованно около 1500 кукол, в том числе — многочисленные вылепленные из глины скульптором Ольгой Таёжной лилипуты.

Сюжет наполнен «новым пониманием» в духе того времени: рабочий класс лилипутов борется с прогнившим капитализмом: король-марионетка, тайная полиция, жёлтая пресса и т. п. Советский пионер, конечно же, не может остаться в стороне, и помогает рабочим.

Фильм был удостоен почётной грамоты на кинофестивале в Москве в 1935 г.

Пионер Петя Константинов в качестве награды как лучшему юному осводовцу Артека получает любимую книгу — «Путешествия Гулливера» Джонатана Свифта. Вместе с другими пионерами, своими руками отремонтировавшими парусную лодку со звучным именем «Артек», он отправляется на прогулку к ближайшим от пионерского лагеря островам Адалары. Там на отдыхе ребята просят вожатого прочитать им вслух Петину книгу. Сам же лучший осводовец во время чтения уснул и сам попал в мир, описанный в книге.

Петя путешествует на корабле, его корабль атакуют пираты. Вместе с тремя пленниками Петя дерётся с пиратами и одерживает верх, но в этот момент и пиратский корабль разбивается о скалы. Петя очнулся на берегу, окруженный и связанный лилипутами. Его усыпляют сонным зельем. В парламенте идут прения, что делать с новым Гулливером, доходит до драки (любопытен маленький крупный план, когда видно, что у первого министра не хватает нескольких зубов). Слово берёт король, он решает использовать Гулливера в военных целях. Гулливера перевозят в город с помощью 15 тракторов и специальной платформы. Петю будит сам король, сунув скипетр ему в нос. Перед Петей проходит военный парад.

В это время где-то в подвалах проходит митинг рабочих. Стачка назначается на следующий день. Они нашли Петину тетрадь по русскому языку, из которой узнают, что он за могучий союз рабочих всей Земли.

Петю кормят с конвейера, подавая еду краном. Присутствует весь королевский двор. Выступает кордебалет. Когда ему начинают петь, как замечательно живёт народ под руководством мудрого короля, Петя в гневе прерывает певицу и сам начинает петь пионерскую песню. Песню подхватывают рабочие в подвалах. Двор разбегается. Шеф полиции решает убить Гулливера, и даёт указание работникам подземного завода изготовить партию оружия. Рабочие предупреждают Гулливера, полиция узнаёт об этом, но стачка уже началась. Рабочие захватили арсенал. Петю полиция пытается отравить, но он не выпил яд, а выплюнул, сделав вид, что умер. Начинаются военные действия. Повстанцев отбросили к морю, но в дело вступает Петя, он захватывает королевские корабли. Рабочие на земле развивают успех, подрывают фугасы и танки. Гвардия и двор разбегаются. Король не удержался на башне и, падая, зацепился за стрелку башенных часов. Петя дует в горн, взявшийся неведомо откуда, снимает с колокольни колокол и на манер колокольчика трясёт его. Потом произносит: «Митинг свободной Лилипутии объявляю открытым!» и просыпается под смех товарищей, так как последнюю фразу он сказал вслух.

The New Gulliver (Russian: Новый Гулливер, Novyy Gullivyer) is a Soviet stop motion-animated cartoon, and the first to make such extensive use of puppet animation, running almost all the way through the film (it begins and ends with short live-action sequences). The New Gulliver was released in 1935 to widespread acclaim and earned Ptushko a special prize at the International Cinema Festival in Milan. The part of Gulliver was played by Vladimir Konstantinovich Konstantinov, who was born in 1920 and died in 1944 near Tallinn in the Second World War. This was his first and only film role.

The story, a Communist re-telling of Gulliver's Travels, is about a young boy who dreams of himself as a version of Gulliver who has landed in Lilliput suffering under capitalist inequality and exploitation.

Découverte du Monde: Manaus réalisé par Sylvain Dommergue & Philippe Lafargue



Manaus: une ville au cœur de la forêt amazonienne. C'est la capitale du plus grand état brésilien, l'Amazonas, située au confluent du Rio Negro et du Solimoes, juste avant que leurs eaux se mélangent et prennent définitivement le nom d'Amazone. En 1660, les Portugais y installèrent un fort, sous le nom de São José do Rio Negro, afin de marquer leurs prétentions territoriales. Les abords étaient alors peuplés par différents groupes indigènes, notamment les Manaus. Au milieu du XIXe siècle, la folle aventure du caoutchouc prend soudainement possession de la ville qui est tout juste un village. Son ascension est fulgurante; les capitaux venus d'Europe y affluent...

Tatsumi Hijikata: Summer Storm - Butoh: Dance of the Dark Spirit directed by Arai Misao



Ankoku Butoh (Dance of Darkness) is the avant-garde dance form born out of the devastation of post WWII Japan but also influenced by Dadaism, Surrealism and Antonin Artaud's Theatre of Cruelty. It's legendary founder, Hijikata Tatsumi, is the supreme figure in the last half-century of Japan's experimental culture, a seminal and inspirational presence there for artists, choreographers, filmmakers, musicians and writers.

His final performance with his dancers, Summer Storm, took place in 1973 at the Westside Auditorium of Kyoto University. Three cameramen with small 8mm cameras filmed the entire performance in color, one close-up to the dancers' faces and bodies, the second from the middle of the auditorium, and the third from the back of the hall. As with the other performances, the ghostly images of Hijikata and his dancers were outlined against a deep, engulfing darkness. The following year, Hijikata would choose to live in seclusion until his death in 1986. The celluloid images were restored in 2003 and are presented on this DVD—a first for American audiences.

Faut pas rêver: Espagne, la cathédrale du juste réalisé par Simon Freige

Faut pas rêver - 10/01/1997 - 12min12s

Reportage sur un extraordinaire "Bâtisseur de cathédrale à lui tout seul": dans le village de MEJORADA DEL CAMPO, à 20 km de Madrid, un homme passionné (et enfant du pays), ancien moine espagnol âgé de 72 ans, Don Justo GALLEGO, s'est attelé depuis 1964 à la construction, à lui seul, d'une cathédrale, "pour mériter sa place au paradis". Cette cathédrale, étrangement esthétique, "la 1ère construite par un homme seul", est réalisée d'après un plan dessiné par un ami, mais toute la conception architecturale est de lui; les dimensions en sont impressionnantes: 50 m de long sur 30 de large, la coupole culmine à 55 m du sol... En vérité il est parfois aidé soit par un maçon, soit par des gens du village.

Fed up with being continuously bullied by his elder brother, Krishna sets fire to his brother's motor-bike, which lands him in big trouble with his mother. She takes him to the nearby Apollo Circus and tells him that he can only come home when he earns 500 rupees to pay for the damaged bike. Krishna agrees and finds a job with the circus, but one day his boss asks him to run an errand and when Krishna returns, he finds that the circus has packed up and left. Alone and with nowhere to turn, and unable to find the money to repay his mother, he decides to travel to the nearest big city - Mumbai (Bombay). As soon as he arrives, he is robbed of all his meager possessions. He follows the thieves and befriends them, and ends up in the city's notorious red-light area of Falkland Road, near the Grant Road Railway Station. One of the thieves, Chillum, also a drug pusher and addict, helps Krishna get a job at the "Grant Road Tea Stall." Krishna gets a new name, "Chaipau," and learns to live with it. His goal is to get the money he needs to return home to his mother, but he soon finds out that saving money in his surroundings with the people near him is next to impossible. To make matters worse, he has a crush on a young prostitute named Sola Saal. He sets fire to her room and attempts to escape with her, but the two are caught. This gets Krishna a severe beating, and he loses his job. He works odd jobs to feed himself and look after Chillum, who can't live without his drugs. To get more money, Krishna and his pals rob an elderly Parsi man by breaking into his house in broad daylight. One night while returning home, the boys are apprehended by the police and taken to a juvenile home. Eventually, Krishna escapes and goes back to his world of drug-pushers, pimps and prostitutes, still nurturing his dream of one day returning to his mother.

Le Bic Cristal réalisé par Danielle Schirman



Il a remplacé la plume des écoliers, accompagné l’alphabétisation en Afrique, inspiré les artistes... Le "Bic Cristal" fait son apparition au début des années 1950, lancé par le baron Bich, qui a acheté au Hongrois Lazlo Biro son brevet de roulement à bille et d’écoulement de l’encre. C’est l’un des tout premiers objets jetables imposés par Bic à grands coups de publicité, avant les briquets et autres rasoirs.

Depuis, le Bic s’est émancipé au point de devenir l’outil d’écriture par excellence. Son nom est quasiment devenu un nom commun - tout un symbole!

Grâce à une mise en scène ludique et de judicieuses images d’archives, le film explore ses caractéristiques: sa forme de crayon bien taillé si familière à nos doigts, son corps transparent qui laisse voir le niveau de l’encre... Une histoire de stylo qui raconte aussi l’avènement de la société de consommation.

The setting is a small fishing village. The former seaman Longren (Ivan Pereverzev) raises his daughter Assol (Lena Cheremshanova/Anastasiya Vertinskaya) alone after losing his beloved wife, making a meager living by selling the toy boats he carves from wood. As a child, Assol encounters an old man (Nikolay Volkov) who claims to be a wizard and promises the girl that one day a prince will come on a ship with scarlet sails to carry her away. The villagers scoff but Assol believes her dream will come true one day.

Arthur Grey (Sasha Lupenko/Vasily Lanovoy) is a nobleman's son who breaks away from his cruel father (Pavel Massalsky) to pursue a life at sea, and eventually becomes the captain of a merchant vessel. Having set to port at Assol's village, he spies the young maiden sleeping in the forest and falls in love. After inquiring in the village he learns of Assol's dream and sets about to make it come true.

Khottabych (Russian: Хоттабыч [}{0ТТ@БЬ)Ч], Hottabych) is a 2006 Russian comedy folk-tale by STV Film Company, a remake of the 1956 Soviet film Old Khottabych. This film has little in common with the first film, except for some central elements. The film has the screen name K}{OTT@B\)CH, underscoring the film's Internet motif. It is based on the novel The Copper Jar of Starik Khottabych by Sergey Oblomov. It opened in theaters on August 10, 2006 at Karoprokat.

A youth named Gena is a hacker hooked on computers and the Internet. His girlfriend is fed up with him, because he pays so little attention to her and so much to his electronic exploits, such as defacing the www.microsoft.com web site.

Attempting to mend his relationship with his girlfriend, he buys an ancient jar from an Internet-auction and finds a genie residing in it. Per the fairy-tale tradition, he is offered three wishes. First, the genie, named Hottabych by Gena, prints a huge number of US$100 banknotes. Unfortunately Hottabych is not familiar with modern paper, and the banknotes are printed on Egyptian papyrus. This later sets off a chain of events leading back to Gena.

Unbeknownst to him, the local mafia is aware of Gena's skills and is intent on forcing him to gain entrance to bank computers. Furthermore, the Russian and American police forces are attempting to locate him because of his recent activity on the Internet. The Americans send a female hacker named Annie to trick Gena into revealing himself, which he does. After a rocky start to their relationship, romance ensues.

Things are further complicated by an evil genie named Shaitanych who is also hunting for the jar, in an attempt to collect all 13 genie-vessels and gain dominion over Earth. After Hottabych grants Gena's final wish, he decides to become a mortal man and is subsequently killed by Shaitanych. Left with nothing but a strand of Hottabych's hair, Gena and Annie decode his DNA and upload the binary code into the Internet, where a final battle takes place between Hottabych and Shaitanych.

The Bolshoi Ballet in Christopher Wheeldon's Misericordes directed by Oliver Manzi



"Created especially for Russia's Bolshoi Ballet, perhaps the most esteemed and time-honored dance company in the world, the piece known at its premiere as Misericordes is a richly imagined reinterpretation of Hamlet. This recording of its opening night performance in Moscow captures both the boundary-pushing vision of choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and the breathtaking artistry of Svetlana Lunkina, Dmitri Gudanov, and other Bolshoi dancers. The work is choreographed to Arvo Pärt's Symphony No. 3, which, together with Paul Tazewell's graceful costumes, lends the production an aura of sacred pageantry and, on a more subtle level, a haunting sense of danger. Part of the series Strictly Bolshoi".

BBC: The Impressionnists - Edouard Manet 1832 - 83 directed by Phil Grabsky & Ali Ray



The Impressionists have become the international superstars of Western painting. The works of Manet, Monet, Renoir, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Cezanne and the great successors of Impressionism like Gauguin and Van Gogh appear everywhere and are well loved by the public and academics alike. In addition to their popularity and accessibility, for their time impressionist paintings were radical works of art, which instigated a revolution in the art world. The Impressionists broke away from traditional, academic art in their technique - by using touches of color to capture movement and light and in their subject matter, depicting ordinary people at work and leisure in Paris and on the banks of the Seine. In this series, "The Impressionists with Tim Marlow", we are reacquainted with the artists - their motivations and loves, triumphs and disappointments and with their work. Marlow takes us on a journey through late nineteenth-century France and he invites us to immerse ourselves in the greatest impressionist works of art.

BBC: Only Fools and Horses - "Tea for Three" directed by Martin Shardlow


(WIKI) Only Fools and Horses is a BAFTA winning British television sitcom, created and written by John Sullivan, and made and broadcast by the BBC. Seven series were originally broadcast on BBC One in the United Kingdom between 1981 and 1991, with sporadic Christmas specials until 2003. Episodes are regularly repeated on GOLD.

Set in Peckham in south London, it stars David Jason as ambitious market trader Derek "Del Boy" Trotter, Nicholas Lyndhurst as his younger brother Rodney, and Lennard Pearce as their ageing grandfather (later replaced by Buster Merryfield as their Uncle Albert). Backed by a strong supporting cast, the series chronicles their highs and lows in life, in particular their attempts to get rich.

After a relatively slow start the show went on to achieve consistently high ratings, and the 1996 episode "Time On Our Hands" holds the record for the highest UK audience for a sitcom episode, attracting 24.3 million viewers (over a third of the population). Critically and popularly acclaimed, the series received numerous awards, including recognition from BAFTA, the National Television Awards and the Royal Television Society, as well as winning individual accolades for both Sullivan and Jason. It was voted Britain's Best Sitcom in a 2004 BBC poll.

Trigger's young niece, Lisa, is staying with him for a while, and the scruffy young girl that Del and Rodney remember has now become a stunning 25 year-old woman. Both Trotter brothers think they are in with a chance, and immediately begin competing for Lisa's affections. Despite almost coming to blows, Del and Rodney manage to invite Lisa round to the flat for tea, and she seems more than happy to accept. In preparation for their date with Lisa, Del goes out to get some more 'Smash' and Rodney spends half-an-hour on the sunbed. Just before Del leaves for the shops, he notices Rodney has dozed off and whacks up the heat on the bed. Much to Rodney's annoyance, he spends most of the evening nursing his bright red face, which has burnt under the ultra-violet rays, whilst Del and Lisa seem to be getting on really well. To get his revenge, Rodders picks up on the fact that Lisa mentions she was going hang-gliding, and as a surprise for his 46th birthday, he arranges for Del to have a go. After offering to give her a lift back home to Winchester, Del and Rodney head off to meet Lisa's friends for a spot of hang-gliding. Not wanting to loose face, Del reluctantly agrees to try it out, and after launching himself into the air, he disappears for over 12 hours. It's only later, after finding out Lisa is engaged to be married, that Del Boy is brought back from hospital after crashing into a television transmitter in Redhill.

山灵雨, Kong shan ling yu (Pluie de lumière sur la montagne vide) réalisé par King Hu (中文 st fr.)



(WIKI) 《空山灵雨》是胡金铨执导的一部电影,1979年上映。该片与《山中傳奇》皆是在韩国取景拍摄,讲述了三宝寺住持传位以及众人争夺玄奘抄写的《大乘起信论》残卷的故事。片中多处运用了禅宗典故,影射了现实世界的种种丑恶现象。[2]该片还被香港电影金像奖选为华语电影百强之一。

三宝寺住持智严病重,要从众弟子中挑选接班人,邀请大财主文安、地方官王将军,以及食荤、不避女色却精通佛法的法师悟外一通参商。文安带有一新娶的小妾白狐,其实是临时雇佣的女飞贼,王将军则带有会武功的酷吏张诚。他与王将军都想盗取寺中的无价之宝——玄奘手抄《大乘起信论》。

白狐心急,与男仆金锁入藏经阁盗宝,不料撞见弟子一辈中的二师兄慧文,可慧文主动为他们开锁,原来他与文安早就串通好了。而王将军则支持大师兄慧通。这时,发配充军的流犯邱明入寺拜在智严门下,他本是被张诚陷害的。一天悟外给众僧在河边讲法,却让一众侍女在河中戏水,悟外安然自若,但众僧大多俗念未尽。智严把《大乘起信论》残卷展示给王将军和文安,并称那只不过是破纸,其中文意才最重要。

智严派邱明看守藏经阁,遇到张诚,两人起了冲突。张诚意欲偷袭,不料被白狐两人发现,结果反而被邱明摔下了楼。第二天僧众开会,王将军恶人先告状,智严等虽然心知肚明,然而仍然罚邱明吊在藏经楼上,但晚上被白狐救下。智严、悟外考教三个弟子,让他们打三桶水,唯有三弟子慧思是听其自然的将水打上来的,并说“心清水自清”。

众僧又一次召开大会,智严将住持一位传给了邱明,出乎众人意料。热衷权位的慧通不服气,煽动众僧以伙食不佳为由闹事,却被邱明平息,还要众僧学种菜,并改革了处罚犯戒人等的措施。邱明向文安借钱,文安要《大乘起信论》作抵押。慧通要联合张诚置邱明于死地,然而由于白狐通风报信,没能得手,反而被罚看守藏经楼。

智严在海边举行了涅槃仪式,白狐盗走了经卷,与文安在河边会和。张诚追去,在树林里几次抢夺,最后金锁、张诚在混战中身亡。众和尚追至,白狐、文安坐船逃跑,不料摆渡人竟是智严。白狐最终被悟外的众侍女擒拿,而文安遇到了慧文,被告知他俩的事已被禀明住持,文安慌不择路,坠崖身亡。

最后,邱明烧毁了众多祸事的缘由——《大乘起信论》残卷的原本,但将其中一份印本送给了王将军。白狐则看破红尘,削发为尼。

Pluie de lumière sur la montagne vide (空山灵雨, Kong shan ling yu) est un film taïwanais réalisé par King Hu, sorti en 1979.

Dans la Chine de la dynastie Ming, le Supérieur du monastère bouddhique de San Pao (Trois Joyaux) doit se choisir un successeur. Parmi les hauts dignitaires invités pour l’assister dans cette lourde tâche, certains convoitent ardemment le parchemin inestimable abrité par le Temple : les soutras du Mahayana écrits par Xuan Zang. Mensonges, trahisons, tentatives de vols et meurtres accompagnent les cérémonies d’intronisation. Mais au final seul la voie du Bouddha prévaudra.

Scènes d'écran: Na Grani réalisé par Luc Riolon



Depuis sa fondation dans le creuset du mouvement hip-hop en 1996, S'poart a su garder intact son désir d'une danse en constante évolution basée sur la performance. La compagnie et les créations sont un espace d'expression, d'initiatives et de rencontres. Mickaël Le Mer découvre le hip hop au début des années 90, lors de la « 2ème vague ». Il se forme avant tout au sein de l'aventure collective de la compagnie S'poart, regroupant des passionnés de hip hop d'un même territoire géographique, les alentours de La Roche sur Yon, dès 1996. Suite à de nombreuses collaborations artistiques avec les compagnies Käfig et Accrorap, S'poart devient elle-même une compagnie professionnelle en 2OO2. C'est dans ce contexte collectif que Mickaël Le Mer fit son premier essai en tant que chorégraphe et c'est avec «In Vivo» (2007).

Le spectacle
Poursuivant le travail sur les matériaux, l'architecture et le corps qui a donné son univers particulier à leur précédent spectacle, in vivo, S'poart élargit son équipe et entre dans une autre dimension avec na grani. Le projet singulier du
chorégraphe Mickaël Le Mer se fonde sur un voyage marquant à Ekaterinbourg. Cette ville de Russie située à la frontière de l'Europe et de l'Asie, dans l'Oural, est un centre industriel. Son histoire particulière et les danseurs qu'il y
a rencontrés ont ouvert la voie de ce nouveau spectacle. Labeur poétique, en résonance avec la mémoire des corps,forgé par l'exploration des limites et frontières du geste, mais aussi par la richesse des différences que chacun porte
en soi.

Fanny and Alexander (Swedish: Fanny och Alexander) is a 1982 Swedish drama film written and directed by Ingmar Bergman. The film won four Academy awards in 1984 and was nominated in six categories including Best Director (Ingmar Bergman) and Best foreign language film (won). It was originally conceived as a four-part TV movie and cut in that version, spanning 312 minutes. A 188-minute version was created later for cinematic release, although this version was in fact the one to be released first. The TV version has since been released as a one-part film; both versions have been shown in theatres throughout the world.

The story is set during 1907–09 (with an epilogue in 1910), in the Swedish town of Uppsala. It deals with a young boy, Alexander (Bertil Guve), his sister Fanny (Pernilla Allwin), and their well-to-do family, the Ekdahls. The siblings' parents are both involved in theater and are happily married until the father's sudden death through a stroke. Shortly thereafter, their mother, Emilie (Ewa Fröling), finds a new suitor in the local bishop, a handsome widower, and accepts his proposal of marriage, moving into his ascetic home and putting the children under his stern and unforgiving rule. He is particularly hard on Alexander, trying to break his will by every means, something Emilie had not expected. The children and their mother soon live as virtual prisoners in the bishop's house until finally the Ekdahl family intervenes, urged by Emilie who has secretly been in touch with her former mother-in-law Helena and told her of their dire situation.

With help from an old friend, a Jewish antiques dealer, as well as some magic, the children are smuggled out of the house, but the Ekdahls' attempts to bribe or threaten the bishop into divorce fail. Emilie, by now pregnant, slips her husband a sedative and flees as he sleeps, after which a fire breaks out and the bishop is burnt to death. In the meantime, Alexander has met the Jewish merchant's mysterious nephew, Ismael Retzinsky, and fantasized about his stepfather's death – it is as if Alexander's fantasy comes true as he dreams it. The story ends on a mainly happy, life-affirming note, with the christening of Emilie's and the late bishop's daughter as well as the illegitimate daughter of Alexander's uncle, Gustav Adolf Ekdahl (Jarl Kulle); this fruit of the lustful man's affair with the nanny, Maj, is cheerfully adopted into the Ekdahl clan. During the festivities however, Alexander encounters the ghost of the bishop who pushes him to the floor, signalling that he will never be completely free of him.

Découverte du Monde: Baalbek réalisé par Sylvain Dommergue & Philippe Lafargue



Depuis la nuit des temps les hommes ont adoré le soleil. Il eut pour nom BAAL-Sham, Hadad, Hélios ou Jupiter. Les foules sont venues en masse pour se prosterner, l'honorer et le craindre. Elles lui ont édifié jusqu'à la démesure, temples et sanctuaires. Rome, à son apogée s'y employa et lui offrit ce qu'elle avait de plus beau et de plus gigantesque : la pierre fut taillée, sculptée, dressée vers le ciel. Surgit alors un lieu de culte à nul autre pareil, alliant les traditions de l'Orient et celles des Romains. Aujourd'hui encore, presque 2000 ans plus tard, on en a le souffle coupé. Pourtant rien n'a manqué pour venir à bout de Baalbek : la décadence de Rome, les tremblements de...

BBC: The Impressionnists - Claude Monet 1840 - 1926 directed by Phil Grabsky & Ali Ray



The Impressionists have become the international superstars of Western painting. The works of Manet, Monet, Renoir, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Cezanne and the great successors of Impressionism like Gauguin and Van Gogh appear everywhere and are well loved by the public and academics alike. In addition to their popularity and accessibility, for their time impressionist paintings were radical works of art, which instigated a revolution in the art world. The Impressionists broke away from traditional, academic art in their technique - by using touches of color to capture movement and light and in their subject matter, depicting ordinary people at work and leisure in Paris and on the banks of the Seine. In this series, "The Impressionists with Tim Marlow", we are reacquainted with the artists - their motivations and loves, triumphs and disappointments and with their work. Marlow takes us on a journey through late nineteenth-century France and he invites us to immerse ourselves in the greatest impressionist works of art.

BBC: The Weird Adventures of Eadweard Muybridge directed by Jill Nicholls


Pioneer photographer, forefather of cinema, showman, murderer - Eadweard Muybridge was a Victorian enigma. He was born and died in Kingston upon Thames, but did his most famous work in California - freezing time and starting it up again, so that for the first time people could see how a racing horse's legs moved. He went on to animate the movements of naked ladies, wrestlers, athletes, elephants, cockatoos and his own naked body, projecting his images publicly with a machine he invented and astounding audiences worldwide with the first flickerings of cinema. Alan Yentob follows in Muybridge's footsteps as he makes - and often changes - his name, and sets off to kill his young wife's lover. With Andy Serkis as Muybridge.

Калина красная (The Red Snowball Tree) directed by Vasili Shukshin (pyc. st eng.)



(WIKI) «Калина красная» — художественный фильм Василия Шукшина по одноименной повести.

Выйдя из тюрьмы, Егор Прокудин решает податься в деревню, где живёт синеглазая незнакомка Люба, с которой он переписывался — ведь надо немного переждать и осмотреться. Но жизнь в деревне рушит все планы Егора, и он решает навсегда порвать с прошлым. Теперь у него есть друзья, работа, любимая женщина (Люба). Однако бывшие друзья-преступники Егора не собираются мириться с его успокоенностью…

The Red Snowball Tree (Russian: Калина красная) is a 1974 Soviet film directed by Vasily Shukshin. It was the most successful film of that year. In total the film was watched by over 140 Million people.

This was the last film made by writer/director/actor Vasili Shukshin, who was a leading exponent of the Russian traditionalist cultural movement which idealized the simplicity of rural, village life. It is based on his novel of the same name. Shukshin died in 1974, the year the film was released. While Kalina Krasnaya clearly favors the simple life, it does not embellish or overly glorify this theme, unlike official party films in praise of workers; this may partly account for its popularity. Duty, guilt, delayed redemption and retribution are the themes of this movie, which has resonances with Dostoevsky's works. Yegor Prokudin (Vasili Shukshin) is an orphan who grew up in a criminal gang. While he was free, he did not lose his innocent, joyful heart, but many years in prison have taken away his joy in living. The film opens on the occasion of his release from prison. Soon, he discovers love with a village peasant girl, Lyuba (Lidia Fedoseeva-Shukshina), who restores his will to live and fills him with an enthusiasm for rural life. Their idyll is short-lived, as his former associates will not leave him alone.

Baron Prášil (The Fabulous Baron Munchausen) Karel Zeman (čes. st eng.)



(WIKI) The Fabulous Baron Munchausen (Czech: Baron Prášil) is a 1961 tinted Czechoslovak romantic adventure film directed by Karel Zeman, based on the tales about Baron Münchhausen. The film combines animation with live-action and is heavily stylised.

The film begins with footsteps leading to a pond. The camera continually moves upwards to show the flight of butterflies, birds, and a progression of historical aircraft ending with a rocketship travelling through space and landing on the moon.

The astronaut/cosmonaut leaves his spacecraft and sights other footsteps on the moon leading him to an old phonograph, then a crashed rocket with a plaque reading Jules Verne's From the Earth to the Moon. Taken to a dinner table, the surprised space traveller meets the characters from Verne's book and Baron Münchhausen. Inviting him to their table, the characters believe that the cosmonaut is a man actually from the moon, and kindly treat him as a small child.

The Baron decides to take him to Earth in a fanciful airship held up by a herd of winged horses. The Baron dresses the spaceman, called "Joey" in the English dubbed version and "Tonik" in the original Czech, in 18th Century costume where they land in 18th Century Turkey. Speaking in an unintelligible voice that he calls the "language of diplomacy" the Baron presents Joey to the Sultan. However Joey's lack of knowledge of diplomatic protocal and his falling in love with Princess Bianca, a damsel in distress held prisoner by the Sultan leads to a series of romantic and fanciful adventures that transform the modern scientific space traveller into a hero rivalling the Baron.

Among the exciting and satiric adventures are sword and sea battles with the Turks, being swallowed by a giant fish, and ending the conflict between two warring kingdoms.

BBC: Only Fools and Horses - "The Longest Night" directed by Martin Shardlow


(WIKI) Only Fools and Horses is a BAFTA winning British television sitcom, created and written by John Sullivan, and made and broadcast by the BBC. Seven series were originally broadcast on BBC One in the United Kingdom between 1981 and 1991, with sporadic Christmas specials until 2003. Episodes are regularly repeated on GOLD.

Set in Peckham in south London, it stars David Jason as ambitious market trader Derek "Del Boy" Trotter, Nicholas Lyndhurst as his younger brother Rodney, and Lennard Pearce as their ageing grandfather (later replaced by Buster Merryfield as their Uncle Albert). Backed by a strong supporting cast, the series chronicles their highs and lows in life, in particular their attempts to get rich.

After a relatively slow start the show went on to achieve consistently high ratings, and the 1996 episode "Time On Our Hands" holds the record for the highest UK audience for a sitcom episode, attracting 24.3 million viewers (over a third of the population). Critically and popularly acclaimed, the series received numerous awards, including recognition from BAFTA, the National Television Awards and the Royal Television Society, as well as winning individual accolades for both Sullivan and Jason. It was voted Britain's Best Sitcom in a 2004 BBC poll.

el, Rodney, and Albert are mistakenly apprehended as shoplifters by an overzealous security guard at the Top Buy Supermarket. And things get worse when they're taken to the manager's office and realise that they've lost their receipt for the goods.

Shortly after, Tom the security guard brings a cocky shoplifter, Lennox Gilbey, into the manager's office, where he promptly pulls out a gun and demands money from the safe.

Unluckily for Lennox the safe is on a time-lock and due to the dodgy watch he's wearing, he's 15 minutes later than he planned - and the safe doesn't open until 8am the next morning.

After being held hostage throughout the night, Del realises that he sold the dodgy watch to Lennox, and that he also knew him as a kid. By preying on his guilty conscience, Del persuades Lennox to reveal that the plan was hatched by Tom and the supermarket manager to get at the £60,000 stored in the safe.

The three accomplices beg Del not to go to the police, and instead, he arranges for Lennox to get a job as security guard at the supermarket after Tom's retirement, and then makes sure he wins a £1,000 prize as the millionth customer in the store.

Faut pas rêver: France, Marseille le panier réalisé par Régis Michel

Faut pas rêver - 17/09/1993 - 12min46s

Véritable village en plein coeur de Marseille, le Panier est le plus vieux quartier de la ville. Le plus légendaire aussi. La plupart des marseillais n'y ont d'ailleurs jamais mis les pieds, effrayés par sa mauvaise réputation. En effet, ce quartier populaire où marins, dockers et petits commerçants immigrés d'Italie se cotoyaient, fut aussi jusque dans les années 70, le fief des plus grands truands locaux. Ce reportage retrace l'histoire du Panier et les habitants d'aujourd'hui se souviennent de l'atmosphère de solidarité et de convivialité qui régnait entre voisins, dans ce décor digne des films de Pagnol. - Dans les rues, Gisèle, marchande d'escargots, née en Italie vend ses gastéropodes cuisinés selon une recette connue d'elle seule. - Dans un bar, Rosy qui a chanté à l'Alcazar y a connu les plus grands (Lucienne Boyer). Elle montre une photo prise quand elle avait 35 ans. Au Panier, les hommes jouent aux cartes, une femme apporte les boissons. Ils racontent leurs souvenirs. Les enfants s'amusent sur tandis que les femmes assises sur des chaises en haut de la rue discutent ou tricotent. - De ce quartier, on aperçoit le vieux port et ses bateaux. - Mais pendant l'Occupation, le Panier a été évacué, 10 000 personnes arrêtées, les maisons étaient promises à la destruction. - Aujourd'hui, le soleil se couche sur les toitures des ruelles qui ont été épargnées et où l'on voit le linge sécher aux fenêtres. - Une vieille femme installée depuis 60 ans dans le quartier se souvient : on donnait pour la famille du truand qui venait d'être arrêté. - Nikita, ancien truand (du gang des blouses grises), un des derniers survivants, a fait 25 ans de prison. Il explique pourquoi il volait. - A la terrasse d'un café, les buveurs se rappellent des manières polies et correctes des voyous, avec les personnes âgées en particulier. Ils ne se faisaient du mal qu'entre eux. Un ou deux crimes pour réglement de comptes ont suffi pour forger la mauvaise réputation du quartier. - Et même si le reportage nous montre encore des marseillais attablés dans une cave pour une partie de "passe anglaise", ceux-ci ne jouent plus l'argent comme autrefois, chacun reprenant sa mise à la fin de la partie; et si l'on voit pour finir, un truand courir, poursuivi par la police, ce n'est plus que pour les besoins d'un film.
