...and the Band played on
(1993 Roger Spottiswoode) 50:-

From Randy Shilts' bestseller comes a powerful, enlightening and moving chronicle of our times.

In the summer of 1981, few knew of the deadly disease we now call AIDS. "...and The Band Played On" follows the struggle of a handful of strong-willed men and women who took on the fight to save lives.

Matthew Modine stars as Dr. Don Francis, a researcher at the Centers for Disease Control who seeks to uncover the cause of a number of mysterious deaths. With little funding for a subject few will even discuss, not only must he fight the disease, but a disinterested public, the government, the media and even the communities where the mysterious virus strikes hardest. But as the death toll mounts, public interest is stirred and Francis' research becomes a desperate race against time.

Agnés Varda
"4 by Agnés Varda" 475:-

Agnès Varda used the skills she honed early in her career as a photographer to create some of the most nuanced, thought-provoking films of the past fifty years.

She is widely believed to have presaged the French new wave with her first film, "La Pointe Courte", long before creating one of the movement's benchmarks, "Cléo from 5 to 7". Later, with "Le Bonheur" and "Vagabond", Varda further shook up art-house audiences, challenging bourgeois codes with her inscrutable characters and offering effortlessly beautiful compositions and editing. Now working largely as a documentarian, Varda remains one of the essential cinematic poets of our time and a true visionary.

Aika Hyvä Ihmiseksi
(1977 Rauni Mollberg) 80:-

svensk titel: Rätt Bra för att vara Människa

Rapsodisk berättelse från en finländsk småstad på 1920-talet. Såren efter inbördeskriget 1918 är ännu inte helt läkta. Den rådande förbudslagstiftningen inbjuder till flitigt hembrännande, så även på den gård omgiven av gammal fin trähusbebyggelse, där merparten av episoderna tilldrar sig.

"Rätt Bra för att vara Människa" är ett slösande rikt snitt genom en tid och en stämning, full av poetiska bilder om sammanhållningens och självkänslans villkor i fattigdomens småstad.

Akasen Chitai (1956 Kenji Mizoguchi) 225:-

originaltitel: 赤線地帯

In a Tokyo brothel named Dreamland - an obvious irony given the faded hopes of those who work there - the lives of five prostitutes intersect. Each has a very different story for how they entered the profession, but what they share is the struggle to make sense of the red light district and its cycle of exploitation. Filmed shortly before the Japanese government's introduction of an antiprostitution bill, 'Akasen Chitai' is a compelling study of women torn between financial necessity and questions of conscience.

Yokihi (1955 Kenji Mizoguchi)

Middle-aged philosophy professor Marion Post (Gena Rowlands) would appear to have every advantage.

But she is interrupted, thanks to an accident of ventilation, by the therapy sessions going on in the psychiatrist's office next door.
