Set in the 1950s, The Dupes traces the destinies of three different men brought together by their dispossession, their despair and their hope for a better future.

Representing different dimensions of the Palestinian experience, each one believes he can make a new life for himself, but as the film s title suggests, their flight is no solution. One of the first Arab films to address the Palestinian question, 'The Dupes' is based on the 1962 novella 'Men in the Sun' by assassinated Palestinian writer, artist and resistance leader, Ghassan Kanafani. Set in Palestine and Iraq, and filmed in Syria by Tewfik Saleh, an Egyptian director, the film was banned in several Arab countries due to its implied criticisms of Arab governments.

The Errors of Youth was an effort to describe Dimitry Gurianov, a representative of his generation who can't find his place in life. The hypocrisy of the Army; the boring life of the countryside; the hard work and constant drunkenness in the north; plus misadventures with women bring him to Leningrad, where he becomes part of the 'black market' scene.  The film was banned  after it was made, because it was found to be too close to 'real life.'







THE GERMAN CHAINSAW MASSACRE (1990) * with hard-encoded English subtitles *



The Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies, banned in Germany (no doubt as potentially dangerous, sort of like romantic comedies from 1942), led the creator of the German Chainsaw Massacre to make his own version after watching bootleg versions of the American horror film. It took 14 days to make the film and was done almost immediately after the Wall came down in Berlin. In the film, bizarre West German murderers see low cost meat in the East Germans moving over the old boundary into the West and start turning them into sausage. Clara flees her sleazy spouse and the rotting East, and lands in the arms of the butchers. She is kept alive simply because the daughter of the family falls in love with her. Who knew that some 4% of the Ossies heading to the Golden West never arrived at their destination, but were instead turned into Wurst?

Part 1 - Target Peenemunde: The German Army has been working in great secret on a ballistic rocket since 1936, with the goal of using it in a war expected to begin in the near future. In 1939, the anti-fascist scientist Dr. Kummerow sends an anonymous report to the English embassy in Oslo; a report which has been ignored in London for years. Resistance groups in France, Poland and Germany, on the other hand, are trying to find the trail leading to Hitler's "Wonder Weapon". Borawski, a Varsovian, is snuck into the secret project at Peenemunde. A Polish cleaning lady for the scientist Grunwald and the scientist's guard, Drager (who is later successfully recruited to assist the Resistance) help Borawski accomplish his task. After resistance members pass on further materials, London decides, maybe it would be best to bomb the place.

Part 2 - Password Paperclip: The Allied bombing raid causes great damage. However, it doesn't do much to stop the production of the dreaded rockets. Among the casualties of the British raid is Grunwald's girlfriend and the cleaning lady. Having experienced pangs of conscience for a while already, Grunwald decides to assist the Resistance. The manufacturing of the rockets are now moved from Peenemunde to an underground factory in the Harz Mountains, which was prepared long before the move. The Anti-Fascists attempt to cripple the rockets with sabotage. They do this, even though brutal reprisals by the SS thin their ranks. Little does the Resistance know, however, that the leader of the rocket program has made an arrangement with the advancing Americans to work for them as an expert.

Das polnische Hausm dchen des Wissenschaftlers Grunwald und deren Bewacher Dr ger, der sp ter f r die Aufkl rungsarbeit gewonnen werden kann, helfen ihm. Nachdem die Widerstandsgruppen immer neues Material weitergeleitet haben, entschlie t man sich in London endlich zu einem Luftangriff.

Teil 2 - Password Paperclip: Der alliierte Angriff richtet gro en Schaden an, trifft die Raketenproduktion jedoch nicht im Kern. Unter den Opfern befinden sich auch Grunwalds Freundin und sein Hausm dchen. Schon lange im Gewissenskonflikt, begibt sich Grunwald jetzt auf die Seite des Widerstands. - Die Produktion wird von Peenem nde in eine seit langem vorbereitete unterirdische Anlage im Harz verlegt. Mit organisierter Sabotage versuchen die Antifaschisten, die Raketen untauglich zu machen. W hrend sie sich auch von brutalsten Vergeltungsschl gen der SS nicht einsch chtern lassen, bereitet der Leiter des Unternehmens sein Arrangement mit den anr ckenden Amerikanern vor, die den Experten brauchen.

In 1941, the British Admiralty is worried about the large number of Allied ships being destroyed in the Pacific Ocean by a mysterious enemy vessel. Initially, British Admiral Russell suspects that a German submarine is the culprit. However, the few revealed pieces of the mystery point to a German Navy surface warship. The British don't know it yet, but the enemy ship in question is the German raider Atlantis commanded by Captain Rogge. His success in sneaking upon unsuspecting enemy vessels is due in large part on Atlantis' ability to disguise itself as a benign, non-combatant, neutral ship. To achieve this ruse, the Atlantis uses props, camouflage, paint, fake foreign flags and even theatrical costumes for its crew to make itself appear something it's not. When the Atlantis is close to its prey, it reveals its true identity and opens fire sinking the duped victim. Finally realizing the truth, Admiral Russell decides to set traps in order to persuade the Atlantis to reveal its position to a task-force of British warships laying in ambush .But first, Admiral Russell must gain Atlantis' confidence by pretending he's sending messages from the German Navy High Command.
