Elusive Justice: A Nazi Story That Still Surprises | Television Review by Dorothy Rabinowitz Louis Malle: Indien | Film-Rezensionen.de (“L’Inde Phantome/Calcutta” directed by Louis Malle, 1969) Wir Deutschen können uns glücklich schätzen. Wir haben König Pilsener, Schloss Neuschwanstein, „Deutschland sucht den Superstar“ und nun endlich die wertvollen Dokumentation über Indien des französischen Filmemachers Louis Malle. ‚Pierrot Le Fou‘ hat sich dieses Werkes angenommen und auf drei DVDs in einem Schuber veröffentlicht, das sich optisch und akustisch sehen bzw. hören lassen kann. Die Bildqualität ist größtenteils sehr sauber, nur gelegentlich etwas grobkörnig und von leichten Verschmutzungen durchzogen, was zweifellos dem Ausgangsmaterial zuschulden ist. - Phantom Indien – Malles Dokumentationen sind erfrischend unkompliziert – oder ist es gerade das, was sie so kompliziert erscheinen lässt? - Kalkutta – Als Louis Malle sich das gefilmte Material für „Phantom Indien“ ansah, entschied er, dass die Szenen, die er in Kalkutta gedreht hatte, es wert waren, in einen eigenen Film zusammengefügt zu werden.

Indian Vibes - BESPRECHUNGEN - Film Mehr Reviews Slumdog Millionaire Stell Dir vor, Du bist Kandidat in der Show “Wer wird Millionär”, Du hast bis jetzt alle Fragen richtig beantwortet. Du stehst kurz vor dem Hauptgewinn und dann wirst Du verhaftet. Danny Boyle kennt man als Regisseur von „Trainspotting“ und „The Beach“. Die Geschichte des Films entfaltet sich in den Verhören auf dem Polizeirevier. Der Film basiert auf dem ergreifenden Buch von Vikas Swarup „Q and A“, auf deutsch „Rupien, Rupien“. Und Mumbai ist ganz klar einer der Stars des Films, eingefangen in beeindruckenden und faszinierenden Bildern. Auch bei der Auswahl der Darsteller bewies Danny Boyle großes Geschick. Ganz wichtig und hervorragend ist natürlich der Soundtrack von A.R. Kann denn ein westlicher Regisseur überhaupt einen indischen Film drehen? Der Film heimst zurzeit einen Preis nach dem anderen ein und hat jeden einzelnen davon verdient. Slumdog Millionaire Regie: Danny Boyle Kinostart: 19.03.09 Hippie Masala - Für immer Indien

WILDWATERFILM.COM Shortcut to Justice [english] Shortcut to Justice Erweiterte und aktualisierte Neufassung Shortcut to Justice erzählt neben der Geschichte der couragierten „Frauen für Gerechtigkeit“ nun auch die Geschichte der Frauengerichte der "Nari Adalat", die in Gujarat und auch in anderen indischen Bundesstaaten aktiv sind. Die „Frauen für Gerechtigkeit“ und die "Nari Adalat" Frauen wehren sich, couragiert und solidarisch, gegen Unrecht und Gewalt, unter denen viele Frauen dort leiden. Weil Polizei und Justiz oft untätig bleiben und kaum Schutz und Hilfe geben, haben sie selber Gerichte gegründet. Mit Schlagfertigkeit und Kreativität weisen sie prügelnde Ehemänner und zänkische Schwiegermütter in die Schranken. Die Vereinten Nationen und medica mondiale setzen den Film in vielen Ländern für die Frauen- und Menschenrechtsarbeit ein. Länge: 54 Minuten, deutsche Untertitel, verfügbar in den Formaten 16:9 und 4:3, D 2014 Der Film wird gegen Lizenzgebühr für Vorführungen zur Verfügung gestellt. Stimmen zum Film Trailer

Tenko (TV series) Tenko is a television drama, co-produced by the BBC and the ABC. A total of thirty episodes were produced over three series between 1981 and 1984, followed by a one-off special (which was twice the length of the other episodes), Tenko Reunion, in 1985. The series dealt with the experiences of British, Australian and Dutch women who were captured after the fall of Singapore in February 1942, after the Japanese invasion, and held in a Japanese internment camp on a Japanese-occupied island between Singapore and Australia. Tenko was created by Lavinia Warner after she had conducted research into the internment of nursing corps officer Margot Turner (1910–1993) for an edition of This Is Your Life and was convinced of the dramatic potential of the stories of women prisoners of the Japanese.[1] Aside from the first two episodes, set in Singapore, which were written by Paul Wheeler, the series was written by Jill Hyem and Anne Valery.

Bechdel Test Movie List '2016: Obama's America' – Will political documentary sway undecided voters? (+video) August may be the laziest month for Hollywood blockbusters, but it has become open season for little-films-that-can. And this year is no exception, with the political documentary “2016: Obama’s America,” pulling in more than $9 million to become the top grossing non-nature documentary of the year. Skip to next paragraph Recent posts Subscribe Today to the Monitor Click Here for your FREE 30 DAYS ofThe Christian Science MonitorWeekly Digital Edition The film, from conservative author Dinesh D’Souza, which began playing in theaters nationwide this past weekend and has gone viral online, is a slow – and selective – trip through Obama’s backstory. The documentary is currently screening in Tampa hotels hosting guests at the Republican National Convention, where its themes have been warmly embraced. The surprise success of the film suggests it is part of a “new normal” in US politics, says John Johannes, a professor of political science at Villanova University in Philadelphia. Mr.

Best Historical Movies - a list by Ragabzidann Breakfast Interrupted | Man Made DIY | Crafts for Men | Keywords: art, kitchen, breakfast, video Nothing like enjoying a delicious meal just before it all goes crazy. On purpose. This super fun video, entitled "Breakfast Interrupted" by Bruton Stroube Studio is somewhat of an epic food fight video, sans the people throwing it. It's almost as if there was a mystical force pulling the table from above - and by "mystical," I mean a hydraulic pump going crazy. BSS | Breakfast Interrupted from Bruton Stroube Studios on Vimeo. Shot at 1000fps, each second of this short film captures in detail the way food behaves when it's not handled with care. So jealous of these guys! The video was actually created two years ago, so you may have seen it make the rounds already, but it's new to me, and I just couldn't help but share.
