• Christiane F. - Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo. 1981.
    Christiane F. – Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo is a 1981 German film directed by Uli Edel that portrays the drug scene in West Berlin in the 1970s, based on the non-fiction book of the same name written following tape recordings of teenage girl Christiane F. The film immediately acquired cult status (which it still retains today) and features David Bowie as both himself and the soundtrack composer, which gave the film a commercial boost.
    This movie portrays the drug scene in Berlin in the 1970s, following tape recordings of Christiane F. 14-year-old Christiane lives with her mother and little sister in a typical multi-story apartment building in Berlin. She's fascinated by 'The Sound', a new disco with the most modern equipment. Although legally she's too young, she asks a friend to take her. There, she meets Detlef, who's in a clique where everybody's on drugs. Step by step she gets drawn deeper into the scene.
    Director: Ulrich Edel.
    Cast: Natja Brunckhorst, Eberhard Auriga, Peggy Bussieck, Lothar Chamski, Rainer Woelk, Uwe Diderich, Jan Georg Effler, Ellen Esser, Andreas Fuhrmann, Thomas Haustein, Lutz Hemmerling, Christiane Lechle.

  • Le petit bougnat. 1970.FR. Le Petit Bougnat est un film français réalisé par Bernard Toublanc-Michel, sorti en 1970.
    Deux jeunes enfants se retrouvent en colonie de vacances. Le garçon, surnommé Bougnat (Claude Amazan), que sa mère a oublié d’inscrire, arrive, par débrouillardise, à s’y retrouver. Mais la discipline qu’il y découvre lui pèse. La fille, Rose (Isabelle Adjani), tente, quant à elle, d’y échapper. Elle y trouvera cependant l’amour.
    EN. Isabelle Adjani (about 15 at the time) portrays a girl who does not want to leave for a holiday camp.But fortunately,she falls in love with the counselor (perhaps after a good whacking?).
    But the main subject (check the title) is the story of a very poor dirty boy ("bougnat" is a colloquial word for coal man)who does want to spend his holidays in the aforementioned holiday camp.But as he's got nobody to pay for it,he will go secretly...
    Strictly for children ,although the numerous Adjani fans might be interested in watching her first screen appearance.It's harmlessly entertaining stuff and it's better than its current rating.
    Director: Bernard Toublanc-Michel.
    Cast: Claude Amazan, Isabelle Adjani, Vincenzo Sartini, Guy Allombert, Marie-Claude Rauzier, Michel Théodou, Christophe Charletoux, Michel Gérard, Sylvie Allombert, Jacques Henri Barratier.

  • Pelo malo / Bad Hair. 2013.
     Bad Hair (Spanish: Pelo malo) is a 2013 Venezuelan drama film written and directed by Mariana Rondón. It was screened in the Contemporary World Cinema section at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
    The film has been praised by critics for its performances by Castillo and Lange. It deals with many topics ranging from adolescence and parent-child tensions to gender identity and sexuality. Its setting in Venezuelan society also contributes to many of the film's themes.
    A nine-year-old boy's preening obsession with straightening his hair elicits a tidal wave of homophobic panic in his hard-working mother.
    Director: Mariana Rondón.
    Cast: Samuel Lange Zambrano, Samantha Castillo, Beto Benites, Nelly Ramos, María Emilia Sulbarán, Martha Estrada, Cristina Tovar.
    Venezuela, Peru, Argentina, Germany, 2013.

  • Miss Violence. 2013.
    It's Angeliki's 11th birthday celebration, and a well-organised party is held in her honour. Everything is in order, and all the ingredients of a usual birthday party are there. A nice fest, a big cake, music, dance, a caring grandfather's embrace... a truly loving family environment. But is it real, or is this an elaborate facade? As we witness a devastating act of despair, we understand that something lies underneath. The story advances, and we slowly get lured into a web of hideous secrets, while gradually getting ourselves dragged into a downward spiral of lies and deceptive appearances. When we unwillingly unravel the mysteries kept behind closed doors, in reality, we plunge into the depths of the human soul and the unfathomable secrets within. 
    Director: Alexandros Avranas.
    Cast: Themis Panou, Reni Pittaki, Eleni Roussinou, Sissy Toumasi, Kalliopi Zontanou, Constantinos Athanasiades, Giorgos Gerontidakis-Sempetadelis, Maria Skoula, Chloe Bolota, Maria Kallimani, Anna Koutsaftiki, Stefanos Kosmidis.

  • Wild beasts - Belve feroci. 1984.
     Dangerous zoo animals escape from their cages and run amok in the city after drinking water contaminated by PCP (a hallucinogenic drug also known as angel dust, busy bee, peace powder, zombie dust and jet fuel).
    The bloody death and destruction on offer includes stampeding cattle running down pedestrians, rats devouring a couple having sex in a car, a woman's head stomped by an elephant, a seeing-eye dog savaging his master (he didn't see that coming!), and a savage polar bear attack on a bunch of kids (who, having drunk some PCP themselves, also become killers!).
    Director: Franco Prosperi.
    Cast: Lorraine De Selle, John Aldrich, Ugo Bologna, Louisa Lloyd, John Stacy, Enzo Pezzu, Monica Nickel, Stefania Pinna, Simonetta Pinna, Alessandra Svampa, Frederico Volocia, Alessandro Freyberger, Tiziana Tannozzini, Gianfranco Principi.

  • Lilja 4-ever. 2002.Lilja 4-ever. 2002.
    While waiting for her mothers reply to take her to the USA, Lilya idles the time away smoking, drinking and having fun with her, too, outcast friend Volodya. In time, the chance of a new life becomes non-existent; her life is going nowhere. Meeting a young man, she then finds a plane ticket in her hand and a new life in Sweden: a job, an apartment and prospects. All is not what it seems. There shall be work, there shall be housing and there shall be no escape. This is the stark, frank and disturbing vision of the life of a young victim of the underground sex trade and in all its tone of realism of abject poverty, despicable actions and of wanting to show that dreaming of a better life is not a crime but that life can shatter the illusion of a happy ending.
    Based primarily on the real life of a Lithuanian girl Danguole Rasalaite, who ended up in Sweden after her mother took off and went to America. The film follows the events of Danguole's life pretty closely, with the main exception of the boy Volodja who is entirely fictional.
    Director: Lukas Moodysson.
    Cast: Oksana Akinshina, Artyom Bogucharskiy, Pavel Ponomaryov, Liliya Shinkaryova, Elina Benenson, Pavel Ponomaryov, Tomasz Neuman, Anastasiya Bedredinova, Tõnu Kark, Nikolai Bentsler, Aleksander Dorosjkevitch, Aleksandr Sokolenko.
