THE PLEA  (1967)  * with multiple, switchable subtitles *  * NEW *

Based on the work of Georgia’s national poet Vazha Pshavella (1961-1915), Vedreba is a loosely-structured, visual poem that follows the plots of Pshavella’s epics and talks about pride, honor, revenge, and mourning. Set amidst the mighty swipe of the Caucasus mountains and making full use of the inconceivable natural imagery of geological forms and unusual architecture, of strong facial features and costumes, and of sounds and winds, this is a truly memorable cinema of image creation. Khevsur Aluda kills Chechen Mutsal in a decent fight. Enchanted by his rival’s bravery, Aluda refuses to cut off Mutsal’s right hand. For this violation of Khevsur tradition, Aluda is expelled from his family. Chechen Chokhola gets acquainted with Khevsur Zviadauri while hunting in the mountains. He brings Zviadauri home, pays him homage and lets him stay overnight at his place. However the Chechens know Zviadauri is a Khevsur. They drag him out of Chokhola’s house and execute him near a Chechen’s grave. Chokhola can do nothing to defend Zviadauri.

THE THREE PILOTS  (1942)  * with switchable English and Spanish subtitles *  *NEW*

This tribute to the Italian Air Force Academy, made right in the middle of the Second World War, is, for the most part, lacking the usual fascist innuendos so common to the genre. As the opening credits state, many of the film's extras (who were actual cadets) were either dead or invalided out of service by the time the film went into circulation. To be sure, the country's fortunes were at its low point when the movie finally made it to the theatres. The film addresses the friendships that formed during training for service, along with the usual romantic adventures, and shows some rather dramatic and daring photography. Ironically, while the film tried to give a human face to the soldiers fighting on the Axis side of the war, shortly after its release, a number of pilots from this very academy had switched to the Allied cause after Italy's surrender in 1943.

 

 

THERE’S ALWAYS A PRICE TAG  (1957)  * with switchable English subtitles *  *NEW*

Walking the streets intoxicated, Eric Freminger would've ended up run down by a car without the help of a stranger, Robert Montillon.

Helene convinces Robert to help him in a Machivellan plan she conceives to defraud the insurers and becomes his mistress to pay for the deed. That, of course, doesn't stop him from seducing the young housemaid at an opportune moment. Later, during a violent argument between Robert and Helene, he accidentally kills her. That's when everything really starts to unwind, as the young man is accused of committing two murders he didn't commit.

 

Un soir d'ivresse, Eric Fréminger se ferait écraser bêtement sans le secours d'un inconnu, Robert Montillon. Celui-ci connaît des jours difficiles et, malgré l'accueil plutôt glacial de la femme de Fréminger, malgré le caractère quelque peu inquiétant de la somptueuse demeure où il est reçu, Robert accepte la proposition que lui fait Fréminger d'entrer chez lui comme secrétaire-chauffeur. Quarante-huit heures plus tard, ruiné malgré les apparences, Fréminger se tire une balle dans la tête après avoir annoncé à Hélène, sa femme, que pour toucher les 300 millions de l'assurance-vie, elle devra maquiller son suicide en crime car il vient de faire supprimer la clause « suicide » par l'assurance. Hélène persuade alors Robert de l'aider dans le plan machiavélique qu'elle conçoit aussitôt ; et elle devient sa maîtresse pour le payer de ce petit service. Ce qui ne l'empêche pas de le pousser dans le lit de sa jeune bonne afin de trouver en celle-ci, au moment opportun, un témoin facilement influençable. Mais au cours d'une explication orageuse entre Robert et Hélène, celle-ci est tuée accidentellement par lui. Tout le mécanisme se retourne alors contre le jeune homme qui est accusé de deux crimes sans pouvoir se disculper.

Accompanying him is young Fritz, whom he had gotten to know during the confusing of long retreat on the Eastern Front. Hans' old apartment is almost completely destroyed; only one of the rooms is "liveable", and then only because the situation is so desperate. At a former trucking firm, he finds only an old horse and wedding carriage left over from his once thriving company. Next door to him is Edith, the young widow of a teacher, who's moved in with her child. Soon after, Hans develops a deep affection for her and Edith, too, falls in love with the hale returnee, who radiates so much unwavering self-confidence. Fritz, a clever boy devoid of moral scruples, quickly find his way on the black market, where one can earn good money relatively quickly. Even Hans Richter, whose search for a job is consistently disappointing, soon lets himself get dragged into illegal trade. A few months later, Hans' son Werner returns from imprisonment at the hands of the Allies. A nerve injury has temporarily blinded him. Richter is overjoyed to once more hold in his arms the son he thought dead. Unfortunately, his son is less than delighted in his father's black market dealings and doesn't hesitate to show his disrespect. It isn't long before violent arguments develop between the two. Edith, too, is little impressed by the luxurious gifts Hans has been bringing her. In fact, she turns away from him, disappointed. This leads Hans to reconsider his "work", which has him living in the lap of luxury while others starve.

Eine Nervenverletzung hat ihn vorübergehend erblinden lassen. Richter ist überglücklich, den Totgeglaubten wieder in seine Arme schließen zu können. Umso mehr verstört ihn die Verachtung, die sein Junge ihm und seinen fragwürdigen Machenschaften gegenüber hegt. Zwischen Vater und Sohn kommt es immer wieder zu heftigen Auseinandersetzungen.

Hans beginnt, über sein Handeln nachzudenken, das ihn in Saus und Braus leben lässt, während andere hungern.

Lured by the promise of big money offered to him by two Nazis, Toto la Puzza agrees to appear in an American court in West Berlin and impersonate a general, who's being tried for war crimes.

After being released, the two men head for East Berlin, where Russian security forces promptly put them under arrest. When they're found to be carrying a book, which Toto uses as an advisor to pick out lottery numbers, the Russians believe to have found a secret code book and order the two chumps to use the code to find the flight paths American spy planes are using to violate Soviet airspace. Things don't get better, when Toto's dead aunt comes to him in a dream, dictating a row of numbers which supposedly correspond to the coordinates of these illegal flight paths. When the Russians end up shooting down one of their own planes based on these numbers, they come to the realization that these Italian idiots have nothing to do with espionage. That, however, doesn't prevent a Russian general from trying to use the two in an exchange against two Soviet agents in American hands.

Convinced they're finally on their way back to Italy, they're more than a bit nonplussed when the pilot announces that they've just flown over Peking.

Der Widerstand wird angeführt von Rittmeister von Hochberg und seinem Freund Blome, die sich mit Hilfe zweier junger Frauen, Marie-Luise und Brigitte, in einem Gasthaus verstecken können.  Nachdem die Gefahr vorüber ist, ziehen die beiden weiter, denn sie müssen die Braut des Herzogs, eine Prinzessin, sicher nach England bringen, da Napoleon die Absicht hat, sie aus politischen Gründen mit dem polnischen Fürsten Potovski zu verheiraten.

 

 

BISMARCK  (1940)  * with English and Spanish switchable subtitles *  * NEW VERSION*

Although not at all loved by the Queen and Cabinet, Otto Graf von Bismarck is appointed by King Wilhelm I as a cabinet member on the advice of his War Minister Roon.  Very quickly, Bismarck wins over the trust of the king, while the Cabinet rejects his advice and position more and more.  Of all Bismarck's opponents, the professor of medicine and pacifist delegate Rudolf Virchow is his most critical.  Finally, Bismarck disolves the Prussian Landtag and begins the reform of the Prussian army with the help of Roon.  Bismarck enters Prussia into an alliance with Austria against Denmark.  Soon, a war breaks about between Prussia and Denmark, in which Prussia's army emerges as victorious, no less in thanks to the strategy of Minister Moltke.  Despite Bismarck's successes in Prussia's political scene, intrique and attacks against him take place from all sides of the governmental ministries and from the side of the Crown Prince Friedrich.

 

Obwohl er bei der Königin und dem Kabinett unbeliebt ist, wird Otto Graf von Bismarck von König Wilhelm I. auf Anraten seines Kriegsministers von Roon ins Kabinett berufen. Sehr schnell gewinnt Bismarck das Vertrauen des Königs, während das Kabinett ihm völlig ablehnend gegenübersteht. Von allen Bismarck-Gegnern ist der Medizinprofessor und pazifistisch gesonnene preußische Abgeordnete Rudolf Virchow der schärfste. Schließlich löst Bismarck den Landtag Preußens auf und beginnt unter der Leitung von Kriegsminister von Roon mit der Heeresreform. Bismarck verbündet sich mit Österreich gegen Dänemark. Es kommt zu einem kurzen deutsch-dänischen Krieg, aus dem Bismarcks Truppen als Sieger hervorgehen, nicht zuletzt dank der genialen Strategie des Ministers Moltke. Dennoch hagelt es innenpolitische Angriffe im Landtag und von Seiten des Kronprinzen Friedrich.

After staying in England for five years, Percy Averhoff returns back to his homeland.  And he discovers, that his overly protective parents have already picked out a bride for him.  However, the choice of Anne Osterkamp was not entirely altruistic, then it just so happens, “by the purest of coincidences”, that she’s the daughter of a business acquaintance of his parents.  To show his parents, that he will be the one to pick out his bride, he answers a newspaper ad.  The letter he sent leads to a meeting with the person who placed the ad, Amalie Hartwig; and she’s a really attractive girl.  But Percy hasn’t a clue what’s really behind her placing an ad in the newspaper for a husband.

 

Nach einem fünfjährigen England-Aufenthalt kehrt Percy Averhoff in die Heimat zurück. Und dort muss feststellen, dass seine übertrieben fürsorglichen Eltern schon eine Braut für ihn ausgesucht haben. Die Wahl fiel allerdings nicht ganz uneigennützig auf Änne Osterkamp, denn sie ist "rein zufällig" die Tochter eines Geschäftsfreundes der Eltern. Um seinen Eltern zu zeigen, dass er seine zukünftige Ehefrau immer noch selbst aussucht, antwortet er auf eine sympathisch klingende Kontaktanzeige. Das Schreiben führt zum Erfolg, Amalie Hartwig ist wirklich ein entzückendes Mädchen ... Percy ahnt jedoch nicht, was hinter der ganzen Sache steckt.

DAS MADCHEN VOM PFARRHOF  (1955)

http://www.rarefilmsandmore.com/Media/Thumbs/0008/0008776-das-madchen-vom-pfarrhof-1956.jpg

At the request of his old friend, the district priest, a young pastor takes the orphaned Annerl into his home, which is run by his housekeeper, Brigitte. Annerl's mother had died recently and all her possessions became the property of von Finsterberg, the owner of the estate they were living on. When Annerl visits von Finsterberg and asks for her mother's property back, the notorious womanizer uses the opportunity to hit on the poor girl. Annerl, however, is no blushing flower. She makes it clear that the old man should take a long walk off a short pier. For his part, the young pastor doesn't have much good to say about von Finsterberg, as he recently returned a stolen foal, but refused to reveal the thief's identity. Turns out, the horse was stolen by Sepp, who earns his living as a poacher and resides with his good-natured, but somewhat mentally challenged mother. Sepp despises the Catholic Church and those who represent it, because the previous parish priest wouldn't let him marry a divorced woman. The lady in question then committed suicide in a nearby river. Thus, Sepp became a willing toold of von Finsterberg and his village clique, who have no love for the young pastor and his "practical Christianity". Soon, gossip is making the rounds of the village about the young priest and Annerl and things finally reach a head at the Easter Festival.

 

Auf Bitten seines alten Freundes, des Einödpfarrers, nimmt der junge Pfarrer von Kirchfeld die verwaiste Annerl in seinen Haushalt auf, der von seiner Wirtschafterin Brigitte geführt wird. Annerls Mutter ist kürzlich gestorben, und alle ihre Habseligkeiten sind in den Besitz des Gutsherrn von Finsterberg übergegangen. Als Annerl Finsterberg aufsucht und um Rückgabe bittet, nutzt der notorische Frauenheld die Gelegenheit, sich an das hübsche Mädchen heranzumachen, doch Annerl lässt ihn einfach stehen. Finsterberg ist auch auf den jungen Pfarrer nicht gut zu sprechen, weil der ihm ein zuvor gestohlenes Fohlen zwar zurückgebracht hat, ihm aber nicht verraten wollte, wer der Dieb war. Gestohlen hatte es Sepp, der sich unter anderem als Wilderer seinen Lebensunterhalt verdient und bei seiner gutmütigen, aber etwas wirren Mutter lebt. Sepp ist ein erbitterter Gegner der katholischen Kirche und ihrer Repräsentanten, denn der frühere Ortspfarrer hatte seine Heirat mit einer geschiedenen Frau verhindert, woraufhin sich diese in den Mühlbach gestürzt hatte. So wird Sepp unfreiwillig zum Werkzeug des Herrn Finsterberg und jener Dorfclique, denen der junge Pfarrer und sein "praktisches Christentum" ohnehin ein Dorn im Auge ist. Üble Klatschgeschichten über Hochwürden und das Annerl machen im Dorf die Runde, und beim Kirchfest nach Ostern eskalieren schließlich die Ereignisse.

Als sie arbeitslos wird, fährt sie zu ihrem Onkel zurück, der sie als Wirtschafterin beschäftigt, und lernt dort den angeblich stellungslosen Reisebegleiter einer amerikanischen Familie, Frank, kennen, der in Wirklichkeit der schwerreiche Erbe der Quick-Autowerke ist. Am Ende kommt es zur schönsten Hochzeit vom Traunsee.
