  TH. เป็นหนังผีที่แหวกขนบหนังผีแบบไทยๆ หลายแง่มุม ซึ่งเล่าผ่านมุมมองของผู้กำกับชาวอังกฤษ พอล สเปอร์เรียร์ (Paul Spurrier) ที่อยู่ในไทยมากว่า 10 ปี โดยหนังได้ติดตามชายหนุ่มที่เพิ่งออกจากร่มกาสาวพัสตร์มาเป็นครูยังภาคอีสาน ดินแดนที่มีเรื่องเล่าถึงผีและวิญญาณมากมาย ซึ่งหนึ่งในลูกศิษย์เป็นเด็กหญิงที่ไม่ยอมพูดกับใคร และมักถูกเพื่อนร่วมชั้นรังแก จนทำให้ครูมือใหม่ต้องยื่นมือเข้าช่วย
หนังเล่าถึงขั้วที่แตกต่างโดยใช้ครูหนุ่มและเด็กหญิงเป็นตัวเปรียบเทียบ แม้ว่าทั้งคู่ต้องเผชิญเรื่องราวร้ายๆ ที่มาพิสูจน์ความอดทนเช่นกัน แต่ครูหนุ่มก็พยายามปรับตัวเข้าหาโลกความเป็นจริงหลังจากที่ใช้ชีวิตในโลกอุดมคติมานาน ในขณะที่เด็กหญิงพยายามหลีกหนีจากความจริงอันโหดร้ายเข้าสู่โลกแห่งจินตนาการในป่า โดยมีเด็กหนุ่มลึกลับเป็นเพื่อน

Le grand départ / The Big Departure. 1972.

Le grand départ / The Big Departure. 1972.
 FR. Le Grand Départ est un film français réalisé par Martial Raysse, sorti en 1972.
Une fin de repas comme tant d'autres: un couple au regard vide devant un écran de télévision, plongé dans une digestion béate; puis, rupture avec l'arrivée brutale et rapide d'un jeune homme, et sa fuite en vélomoteur. Avec lui, le metteur en scène nous entraîne dans une "fête à l'envers"; l'ordre logique est renversé; les personnages changent d'identité; ils empruntent leurs masques tour à tour à des animaux (le chat Caïn), à des héros de la mythologie (Monsieur Nature), à des tableaux célèbres. Les allusions à la peinture sont nombreuses: Léonard de Vinci, Millet, Delacroix et même des contemporains: Labisse et, naturellement, Martial Raysse (le réalisateur est peintre). Les couleurs prennent celles des négatifs d'une photo: les roses buvard tournent subitement au vert, et les mauves délavés au bleu; les catégories, les déterminations ordinaires s'évanouissent dans des effets visuels fluides et inattendus. Ces créatures mystérieuses parlent du "grand départ" et cherchent le "paradis". Cette quête les conduit dans une sorte de communauté hyppie où le rêve a chassé la réalité. Ils se retrouvent sur un radeau soumis à des événements cosmiques indéfinissables; le cauchemar et le merveilleux deviennent inséparables. Les cataclysmes se succèdent; les fantasmes, les espoirs disparaissent, emportés dans un flot d'images évanescentes qui se dissolvent dans la confusion et se désagrègent dans l'horreur! Le grand départ? La quête du paradis? Avec qui? Vers quoi? Puisqu'il semble, "hélas, qu'il n'y ait pas d'autres paradis que celui où nous sommes".
EN. Not a good movie, though a prime example of audacious, rule-breaking cinema. It’s an early seventies French film shown almost entirely in negative exposure, which in itself makes it worth a watch.
LE GRAND DEPART (THE GRAND DEPARTURE; 1972) was the only feature directed by the famed French painter and sculptor Martial Raysse. In keeping with the revolutionary spirit of the time, LE GRAND DEPART has no plot to speak of and appears to have been largely made up on the spot. It shares a kinship with such films as BEGOTTEN (1990) and the X-rated short THE OPERATION (1995), both of which experimented with negative exposure (and far more effectively).
For decades LE GRAND DEPART was thought a “lost” film, but in late 2008 it made its DVD debut (in France), to alternately enchant and disappoint viewers anew.
We follow the cat man into a bizarre fantasy universe presented in negative exposure that reverses color values (black is white and vice versa) and written words. The cat man steals a car and then picks up a young girl he promises to take to “Heaven.” Heaven turns out to be a country chateau inhabited by several more animal mask wearing weirdoes.
There’s also a hippie cult frolicking in the woods nearby. The cult’s leader is an intense English speaking guru who prophecies a “Grand Departure” that will liberate his followers from their Earthly concerns.
Somewhere in here we learn the cat man represents death, as everyone he meets dies soon afterward--if he doesn’t do the killing himself. An example of this occurs when he callously molests a woman on a country road and leaves her for dead.
The cat man winds up on a “raft of freedom” manned by the guru and his followers. The raft becomes a sort of interstellar flying carpet that whisks them all through the cosmos. The trip is fun at first, with the cultists frolicking and playing ball with the Earth(!), but it eventually degenerates into a mass orgy…and the film finally returns to normal exposure.
The negative exposure works wonders, transforming drab Parisian locations into exotic dreamscapes. Of course it can’t do much for the camerawork, which is loose and amateurish; without the visual heightening this would likely play like a crappy home movie. Nor is the acting anything much; the only performer who makes any impression is Sterling Hayden as the cult leader.
 This film was created using technology Eastman Color Negative (ECN) is a photographic processing system created by Kodak in the 1950s for the development of monopack color negative motion picture film stock. Therefore, here is the original version of the film and the second version with inverted chroma.

Een vrouw als Eva / A Woman Like Eve. 1979.
 A better version of this film was found.
NL. Een vrouw als Eva is een Nederlandse speelfilm uit 1979 onder regie van Nouchka van Brakel.
Het verhaal gaat over de huisvrouw Eefje, die getrouwd is met Ad en in een flat woont, samen met hun twee kinderen Sander en Britta. Eva is niet gelukkig met haar bestaan van huishouden, kinderen opvoeden en voor haar man zorgen. Na een uitbarsting bij haar moeder thuis op moederdag verrassen Ad en buurvrouw Sonja haar met een trip naar Zuid-Frankrijk. Als de beide vrouwen daar naar het strand gaan, ontmoet Eefje tijdens een zwempartijtje de Franse Liliane. Ze blijkt een lesbische vrouw, die met nog een aantal anderen in de commune La Corbeille woont. Eefje en Sonja gaan er kijken. Sonja vindt het niks, Eefje wordt aangetrokken door de eenvoudige leefstijl van de bewoners, en niet in de laatste plaats door Liliane, die haar Eva noemt, en haar omringt met aandacht. Eenmaal weer thuis kan Eva Liliane niet vergeten, en als Liliane vanwege een vrouwenfestival naar Nederland komt, besluit ze haar weer op te zoeken. Eva's gevoelens raken verward: wil ze verder met Liliane, of toch bij haar man blijven? Ze besluit voor het eerste te kiezen en Liliane achterna te reizen naar de commune Frankrijk. Na de scheiding van Ad worden de kinderen in eerste instantie aan haar toegewezen. Ad bouwt intussen een relatie op met buurvrouw Sonja.
Toch niet in harmonie met de hele situatie wordt Eva in Frankrijk steeds ongelukkiger. Terug in Nederland huurt ze een woonboot waar ook de kinderen bij haar zijn en waar ze Liliane kan ontvangen. Tijdens de voortslepende rechtszaak over hun echtscheiding worden de kinderen uiteindelijk bij Ad geplaatst, ook omdat die inmiddels met Sonja in ondertrouw is gegaan. Volgens zijn advocaat kunnen zo twee onvolledige gezinnen weer één gezin vormen. Eva is nu alleen, ze kan dus in principe doen wat ze wil. Liliane laat de keus helemaal van Eva afhangen. Ze besluit haar grote liefde te volgen. Eenmaal op het station blijft Eva op het perron een tijdlang staan. Stapt ze op de trein naar een nieuw leven? In de slotscène zien we de trein wegrijden waarna Eva zich omdraait en het perron afloopt.

 Du er ikke alene / You are not alone. 1978. HD.
 DK. Du er ikke alene er en dansk film fra 1978. Filmen er instrueret af Lasse Nielsen og Ernst Johansen, og manuskriptet er af Lasse Nielsen og Bent Pedersen. Filmen havde premiere den 23. februar 1978.
Filmen foregår på en dansk drengeefterskole hvor en af drengene, Bo (Anders Agensø), opdager sin kærlighed for forstanderens yngste søn, Kim (Peter Bjerg), da begge påbegynder en rejse af seksuel udforskning med hinanden. I en ikke-relateret hændelse bliver en elev udvist for at vise pornografiske plakater, hvorefter de andre elever beslutter sig for at protestere og gå i strejke. Kim og Bo beslutter sig for at komme ud af skabet foran forældre og klassekammerater og viser en film de har lavet om deres forhold, der afsluttes med en lang og følelsesladet kyssescene.
Overgreb på børneskuespillere:
I foråret 2018 er det kommet frem i medierne, at mange af børneskuespillerne, både drenge og piger, som var med i filmen, skal være blevet krænket og seksuelt misbrugt under filmoptagelserne. Misbruget skal være begået af de to instruktører Lasse Nielsen og Ernst Johansen.
EN. You Are Not Alone (Danish: Du er ikke alene) is a 1978 Danish coming-of-age film written by Lasse Nielsen and Bent Petersen, directed by Lasse Nielsen and Ernst Johansen and produced by Steen Herdel.
Set in a Danish all-boys boarding school, one of the boys, Bo (Anders Agensø), develops a special relationship with the headmaster's young son, Kim (Peter Bjerg). In the beginning of the film the headmaster is trying to get funding for a new gym for the school. The boarding school is likely a Christian one, as they have school prayer and the teachers keep referring to good Christian morals.
In another plotline, a troubled student is expelled for displaying sexually charged posters. Some of the students decide to protest this by walking-out of classes. The boy is eventually allowed to return to school so that he may graduate. At the year-end graduation ceremony, the boys present to the entire school and their families a short film they made by themselves based on the commandment "Love thy neighbour".
Sexual abuse:
In 2018 six male and sixteen female former child actors accused the two directors of sexual abuse during the production of You Are Not Alone and other films. The accusations were covered widely in Danish media, and Ernst Johansen admitted to having had sex with under-age female actors, but claims to not having been aware of the age of consent (15 years in Denmark), and that the girls made a pass on him first.
 Directors: Lasse Nielsen, Ernst Johansen.
Cast: Anders Agensø, Peter Bjerg, Ove Sprogøe, Martin Højmark, Elin Reimer, Jan Jorgensen, Jørn Faurschou, Merete Axelberg, John Hahn-Petersen, Hugo Herrestrup, Beatrice Palner, Aske Jacoby, Ole Meyer.

HU. A film a Ceausescu-rendszer utolsó évében játszódik. Főszereplője a tízéves Petru, aki értelmiségi szüleivel egy kis hegyi faluban él. Az apát ellenzéki magatartása miatt folyamatosan zaklatják, lassan már élete is veszélybe kerül.
EN. The story starts in Romania in the last years of the Ceaucescu regime. The main character of the film is Petru, a ten-year-old Romanian boy. His world is one of action and dreams but, at the same time, presents an authentic vista of contemporary Central Europe. All the events are shown through his eyes. His odyssey is an amusing and grotesque tale of survival as well as a parable on the survival of the human spirit. He comes to grips with a hostile world with both humour and rage, imagination and innocence. Petru lives with his vegetarian father Mihai and his pianist mother Daniela, in a small idyllic village in the Carpathian Mountains. His best friends are his dog Ursu, with whom he shares all his joys and sorrows, and the buffalo Florica. One day the family has to leave the country for political reasons. A long journey to freedom full of thrills and adventures begins, which first leads them from Hungary to Austria. Here they are sent to a refugee camp where Petru's parents are classified as economic refugees because they have no documents; they are be deported back to Romania. Petru flees on his own and has to encounter a number of dangerous situations. But there are also glimmers of hope when an old stationmaster and his wife from a tiny Bavarian village adopt him, nurse him back to health and enable him to integrate into a new community. But here too, the police are already on his tail...

Tom et Lola / Tom and Lola. 1990. HD & DVD.
 FR. Tom et Lola est un film français réalisé par Bertrand Arthuys, sorti en 1990.
Tom et Lola sont deux enfants-bulle de 9 ans, qui, depuis leur naissance, sont coupés du monde à cause de leur déficience immunitaire. Ils vivent nus, sans cheveux, dans deux bulles de plastique, entourés de l'affection de leur entourage, et attendant désespérément un remède à leur maladie. Cependant, ils construisent ensemble un monde onirique, communiquent avec un code secret et décident un jour, profitant de circonstances favorables, de réaliser leur rêve, atteindre l'Alaska où l'air est si pur qu'ils n'auront plus peur des microbes. Ils s'enfuient donc un soir de l'hôpital et commencent leur aventure merveilleuse pleine de péripéties.
EN. Tom et Lola (English: Tom and Lola) is a French film about two ten-year-olds who have always lived isolated in sterile, hermetically sealed plastic bubbles due to an (unspecified) immune-deficiency disease. However, neither their environment or the hospital technicians can keep down the indomitable spirit of these children. Nor can anything stop their quest to one day run truly free, unbound by the medical shackles that bind them.
In this allegorical children's melodrama, nine-year old Tom and Lola (Neil Stubbs and Melodie Colin) have been kept in super-sanitary conditions all their lives, and have only rarely ventured outside their clinical environment wrapped in plastic. They have been told that they have a radical immune deficiency, and will die if exposed to a normal environment. Surreptitiously, they begin to test the truth of this assertion by escaping from supervision in the middle of the night, and discover that whatever their adult captors believe, they are just fine. One day they escape for good.
Trivia: Late in the film when the pair are traveling, they come upon a group of siblings who are all completely naked in their own home. Despite claims to the contrary, this is perfectly normal for European preteens.
Director: Bertrand Arthuys.
Cast: Cécile Magnet, Marc Berman, Catherine Frot, Celian Varini, Neil Stubbs, Mélodie Collin, Sophie Arthuys, Olivier Belmont, Nadia Chapuis, Edouard Dequesne, Nicolas Haure, Quiterie Lejosne, Junior John Levis, Gwenaelle Quelme, Janine Souchon.

 ES. Un hombre afectado de sus facultades mentales mantiene encerrada a su familia por 18 años en una casona en la Ciudad de México.
Basada en hechos de la vida real, es uno de los films más conocidos del director Arturo Ripstein y del actor Claudio Brook que interpreta a Gabriel Lima, un hombre que aparentemente vive sólo en una casona en la Ciudad de México donde fabríca raticida, el cual vende a pequeños negocios.
Sin embargo lo que ninguno sabe, es que desde hace 18 años mantiene a su familia encerrada, su esposa Beatriz (Rita Macedo), y a sus tres hijos: Porvenir (Arturo Beristaín), Utopía (Diana Bracho) y la pequeña Voluntad (Gladys Bermejo).
Gabriel es muy estricto con ellos, los hace trabajar en su taller y diariamente los somete a sesiones de ejercicio, estudio y una comida basada solo en vegetales, ya que la carne está prohibida, pero lo más importante, los mantiene alejados del mundo exterior porque él cree que es dañino y corrupto, además por la más mínima distracción los castiga encerrándoles en un pequeño cuarto.
La historia esta basada en eventos de la vida real documentados en periodicos de 1959. Rafael Pérez Hernández, mantuvo encerrada a su familia por 15 años en una vieja casona estilo europeo en esquina de Insurgentes Norte y Godard en la ciudad de México conocida como “Casa de los Macetones”.

Das Eismeer ruft. 1984. HD.
DE. Das Eismeer ruft ist ein deutscher Kinderfilm der DEFA von Jörg Foth aus dem Jahr 1984. Er beruht auf dem gleichnamigen Kinderbuch von Alex Wedding.
Prag 1934. Fünf Kinder hören in ihrem selbstgebastelten Radio die Nachricht, daß der Eisbrecher "Tscheljuskin" im Packeis des Polarmeeres liegengeblieben ist. Spontan beschließen sie, die Schiffbrüchigen zu retten. Aber schon bald gerät ihre Expedition in eine Sackgasse. Ein sympathischer Film über den Idealismus der Kindheit, der durch seine ruhige Erzählweise allerdings konzentriertes Hinsehen voraussetzt.
EN. This children's adventure movie is a charming tale of a group of youngsters in Prague who hear that Soviet sailors abandoned their failing ship in the Arctic Sea before it went down, but no one had been able to find the sailors yet. Inspired by the efforts to save the men, the youngsters strike out on their own to help in the rescue attempt. One child is in charge of making the potato pancakes, one is in charge of the compass, and others all have their particular tasks to handle. Their progress toward the Arctic Sea is necessarily slow, whether by foot or cart or train, and they have to hole up in a relative's country cottage to spend their first night away from home. Meanwhile, worried parents have been to the authorities and a hunt is on for the children that parallels the hunt for the seamen. The children hear that they have been reported missing in the news on the radio, and they decide to turn back -- not because they have done anything wrong, but because they have to go through a dark tunnel to continue their journey -- and they are all afraid of the dark. Except for a bit of serious footage on the ship and sailors lost at sea -- which detracts from the focus of this story, the film is entertaining for adults and children alike.
Director: Jörg Foth.
Cast: Oliver Karsitz, Alexander Rohde, Vivian Schmidt, Thomas Gutzeit, Oliver Peuser, Ilja Kriwoluzky, Heide Kipp, Ute Lubosch, Marie Gruber, Gabriela Wilhelmová, Carl Heinz Choynski, Zdenek Srstka, Thomas Plenert, Hannes Stelzer.
