  • К полям, горам и морю / Noyuki yamayuki umibe yuki / To the Fields, to the Hills, to the Beaches. 1986.
     During the fervently nationalist months leading up to World War II, a rebellious teenager is transferred to a new primary school in a small Inland Sea town. He vies with the school’s reigning bully, who takes a romantic interest in his older stepsister. When they learn she’s going to be sold to a brothel to pay off her father’s debts, they form an uneasy alliance to free her. With surprising moments of caricature and slapstick, Obayashi celebrates the anarchic world of adolescence while also satirizing adult hypocrisy and conformism.
    Director: Nobuhiko Ôbayashi.

  • Конец невинности / Koi ni itaru yamai / The End of Puberty.
     Shoko Kimura’s Koi ni Itaru Yamai begins well enough with beyond precocious high schooler Tsubara (Miwako Wagatsuma) seducing her nerdy teacher Madoka (Youichiro Saitou). Through their impetuous coupling on a pile of exam papers, somehow their sex organs get transposed. It’s at this very moment where the film not only begins to fall apart, but where director Kimura begins to show her retrograde attitudes and views about male/female sexuality and roles. The confused couple goes to a cabin retreat to figure out things. Tsubara’s goofy-fascinated by her new rod, while Madoka retches every time the idea of fucking comes up. Somewhere along the line, justified by some idea of counterpoint, another young high school couple En (Aimi Satsukawa) and Maru (Shouta Sometani) join up to cavort and work out their own issues of sexuality. Most noticeably absent from the meandering speaking that poses as dialogue is the issue of a teacher and teenage student getting it on. Zero. Despite a good initial inspiration, Kimura remains pretty fucked up on issues regarding sex and gender.
    Director: Shoko Kimura.

  • Толстая Тилла / Die dicke Tilla. 1982.
     DE. Die etwa zehnjährige Tilla gibt in ihrer Klasse den Ton an. Alle machen, was sie will. Als eine Neue kommt, Anne, bricht Feindschaft auf den ersten Blick aus. Anne malt gern, trägt eine Brille und hat lauter Einsen. Tilla hetzt auch die anderen gegen Anne auf, die sie nicht mag, weil sie so anders ist. Der Zwist wird handgreiflich. Tilla demoliert Annes Fahrrad, und die anfangs schüchterne Anne revanchiert sich mit einem Bild, das Tilla als Karikatur darstellt. In einer Notsituation kommen sie sich plötzlich näher, erzählen von sich. Und das gegenseitige Kennenlernen offenbart, daß sie beide die Neigung zu einer neuen Freundschaft empfinden.

  • Песни мёртвых детей / La cancion de los ninos muertos / The song of the dead children. 2008.
     Set on a remote beach, this long short is at times a harrowing account of brutality and recrimination. Several traumatised children mete out punishment to their elderly father for unimagined crimes in this meditation on grief, blame and consequences.
    There is a stand-out performance from the actor playing the eldest son, Emilio, a thug shaped by tragedy and fear. It is difficult to surmise at times whether the gritty realism here is deliberate, or merely the landscape of an angry teenager's violent fantasies.
    As tension between Emilio and his father continues to mount, the rivalry between the brothers is also played out in a series of confrontations. Magdalena, the only girl, retreats into silence as her body betrays her slow passage into womanhood and she is predictably a caring figure who consoles her youngest brother, who refuses to emerge from the wardrobe, where a mysterious silver chalice is kept. This chalice serves a perhaps surprising purpose in the film's conclusion.

  • Дети с Театральной улицы / The Children of Theatre Street. DVD. 1977.
     A documentary on the Kirov School of Ballet in Russia, narrated by Princess Grace of Monaco.
    "Talent is considered worth measuring only when it occurs in the right body," the narrator announces as hundreds of children are paraded across the camera. Each child is aged 10-12 and is gleaned from an application pool of thousands, all hoping to be chosen by the illustrious Vaganova Choreographic Institute and Kirov Ballet.
    The audition process as we see it is incredibly is rigorous, with children measured and chosen for the specific physical proportions deemed necessary for the ballet before even having a chance to show off their ability but, as this movie keenly illustrates, the audition is only the first step that they'll take in a lifetime of rigorous discipline if they are accepted.

  • Воспитанник / Foster Child. 2007.
     Thelma, together with her husband Dado and teenage sons Gerald and Yuri, are an urban poor family hired by a local foster care facility to provide temporary home and care to abandoned babies pending the latter's formal adoption. The inevitable separation is heart-rending for the foster family.
    Thelma's foster child John-John is to be turned over to his adoptive American parents. Every moment with the 3-year-old John-John becomes more precious as Thelma goes through the day fulfilling her motherly duties for the last time—bathing John-John, feeding him, and bringing him to school where the boy participates in a school presentation.

  • Дерево, которому мы причинили боль / To dendro pou pligoname / The Tree We Hurt.
     GR: Καλοκαίρι 1960, σ' ένα γραφικό χωριό της Χίου, τελευταίες μέρες του σχολικού έτους. Η φιλία δυο αγοριών της Δ’ τάξης του Δημοτικού κλονίζεται. Το σχολείο κλείνει και τα δυο παιδιά περνούν ένα μεγάλο μέρος του καλοκαιριού χωριστά. Ο ένας βοηθάει τη μητέρα του στα μαστιχόδεντρα, τα δέντρα που πληγώνονται και δακρύζουν την αστραφτερή τους μαστίχα. Ο άλλος, ακολουθεί τον δικό του, μοναχικό δρόμο και προσπαθεί να ξεφύγει από τη δική του αυταρχική μάνα, που συνηθίζει να τον κυνηγά με τον πλάστη στα σοκάκια του χωριού. Μια τυχαία συνάντησή τους κατά τη διάρκεια μιας τέτοιας καταδίωξης γίνεται αφορμή να επανασυνδεθούν και να περάσουν μαζί το υπόλοιπο καλοκαίρι.
    EN: It's summer 1960, in the picturesque Greek town of Chios, where people get around by donkey. School is ending, and a present-day narrator is calling up memories of the idyllic weeks he spent between fourth and fifth grades. They compose ''The Tree We Hurt,'' an unassuming Greek movie that opens today at the Public Theater.
    In the course of this brief holiday scrapbook, the boy assists his mother in cutting the bark of the gum tree -''the tree we hurt'' - so the gum may drip out like tears or jewels. He frolics with a stray dog, joins in anouting on the beach, frees some trapped birds and is shot at by the bird catcher. He develops a crush on a pretty girl visitor. He and his best friend, Runny-Nose Vangelis, also known as the Cat Strangler, participate in funeral processions to earn a few coins. They splash in a tiny pool, eat ice cream and smoke a cigarette. With some other kids, they make war on wasps and pick on the local lunatic.
