La traversée du phare (1999)


Director & Writer: Thierry Redler
Stars: Jim Redler, Katty Loisel and Corinne Touzet

Two kids about ten years old meet within a very peculiar framework: both come from broken families and are in care of foster homes... whatever that is! The film is not especially good in production. It's more of an amateur film, but, nonetheless it's a very convincing story that sandwiches tons of strong realities of our times in 93 minutes.

Keby som mal pusku / If I Had a Gun

Director: Stefan Uher
Stars: Marián Bernát, Jozef Gráf and Emília Doseková

This movie is set in Slovakia, which was harshly governed by the occupying Nazis. It follows the life and daydreams of a 12-year-old boy during that period, and does not clearly segregate truth from fantasy. The boy plays games by himself, and frequently fantasizes about facing down the local fascists, a bullying neighbor, and the Germans. "If I had a gun," he says to himself, "I would do this..." When his uncle, a smuggler, leaves a gun with him, he fantasizes about killing the local German commander. Perhaps he did.
