Sunshine for the Poor (2001) – France

 

Year: 2001
Original title: Du soleil pour les gueux
Runtime: 00:55
Country: France
Language: French
Subtitles: English (inside the MKV and .srt)
Genre: Drama
Director: Alain Guiraudie
Cast:
Isabelle Girardet … Nathalie Sanchez
Alain Guiraudie … Djema Gaouda Lon
Jean-Paul Jourdàa … Pool Oxanosas Daï
Michel Turquin … Carol Izba

Plot / Synopsis:
Clocking in at a scant fifty-five minutes, this early work from Alain Guiraudie is alternately loose and precise, with an offbeat sense of humor that works intriguingly against Guiraudie’s precise framing and the determined camerawork of cinematographer Antoine Héberlé (who would reunite with Guiraudie two years later on No Rest for the Brave). The narrative here is a kind of micro-budgeted magical realism, focusing on a woman named Nathalie Sanchez (Isabelle Girardet), a former hairdresser who has started wandering the Causses in search of the “ounaye shepherds,” a group of rural-living men she’s been hearing about since her mother told her stories as a child. Before long, Nathalie Sanchez (the characters in the film always say their names in full) comes across a true-blue ounaye shepherd, Djema Gaouda Lon (Michel Turquin), a bearded man with a black hat and a walking stick. Problem is, he’s lost track of his ounayes, but that’s hardly an issue for Nathalie Sanchez, who sees this as an opportunity to spend some significant time with her own folk hero. Their journey spans several miles, and their conversations yield interesting finds: we learn, for instance, that most ounaye shepherds die young from a disease called “borondale.” The two purveyors also become acquainted with Carol Izba (Guiraudie), a conflicted fugitive on the run from his homeland, and the commanding Pool Oxanosas Daï (Jean-Paul Jourdàa), a renowned bounty hunter (though he prefers the term “pursuit warrior”) on Carol Izba’s tail. As storytelling, the movie is tricky and restrained, but Guiraudie mixes up the pacing by varying the proximity of his camera: in some scenes, the characters are seen in close-up or medium close-up, the banter guiding the filmmaker’s position; in others, Guiraudie pans or tracks as his characters canvas an immense field, their bodies compressing into little dots as they reach the corners of the frames. These shots—documents of gravel, wind, dirt, and the dynamic of four human beings trapped inside a stretch of earth—provide the film’s core.

The Dark Valley (2014) – Austria

 

Year: 2014
Original title: Das finstere Tal
Runtime: 1 hour, 54 minutes [114 minutes]
Country: Austria | Germany
Language: English
Subtitles: English
Genre: Western
Director: Andreas Prochaska

Xenia Assenza … Maria
Carmen Gratl … Gaderin
Paula Beer … Luzi
Thomas Schubert … Lukas
Beatrix Brunschko … Mutter Lukas

Plot / Synopsis:
When the snows come, darkness descends on the valley. It is the late nineteenth century; a stranger arrives in this remote community of alpine farmers. His name is Greider and he has apparently been away in America for some time. Ostensibly a photographer, he announces his desire to stay until winter is over. But this reticent observer, who finds accommodation with the widow Gader and young Luzi, finds himself confronted with the deep distrust of an unwittingly close-knit community. Luzi will soon get married; although she loves her fiancé with all her heart, she fears this day more than any other. When the youngest son of the wealthy Brenner farmer has a fatal accident whilst cutting wood, and his brother is found dead in the mill stream soon after, the old order in the valley begins to unravel. But there are things you just can’t talk about, even if you can’t forget them. Thomas Willmann’s novel on which this film is based skilfully weaves the stylistic devices of the rural-based ‘Aga saga’ into a compelling revenge drama. For her screen adaptation, Andreas Prochaska uses motifs from the western to depict, in archaic images, the silent battle of a community with its own laws.

I Am Twenty (1965) – Russia

Year: 1964
Original title: Mne dvadtsat let
Runtime: 72 mins + 99 mins
Country: Soviet Union
Language: Russian
Subtitles: English
Genre: Drama
Director: Marlen Khutsiev
Cast:
Valentin Popov … Sergei Zhuravlyov
Nikolay Gubenko … Nikolai Fokin

Svetlana Starikova … Vera Zhuravlyova
Lev Prygunov … Second Lieutenant Aleksandr Zhuravlyov
T. Bogdanova … Lyusya Kostikova
Lyudmila Selyanskaya … Conductress

Plot / Synopsis:
I am Twenty is notable for its often dramatic camera movements, handheld camerawork and heavy use of location shooting, often incorporating non-actors (including a group of foreign exchange students from Ghana and the poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko) and centering scenes around non-staged events (a May Day parade, a building demolition, a poetry reading). Filmmakers Andrei Tarkovsky and Andrei Konchalovsky both play small roles in the film. The dialogue often overlaps and there are stylized flourishes that echo the early French New Wave, especially François Truffaut’s black and white films. The screenplay, co-written by Gennadi Shpalikov, originally called for a film running only 90 minutes, but the full version of the film runs for three hours.
