(1981 Peter Weir)

"Gallipoli" relates the events surrounding the ill-fated World War I battle, in which Australian and New Zealand troops set out to capture Istanbul. But mistakes made by upper-echelon military commanders led to disaster -- in which the army grunts suffered the most.

The film, however, focuses not only on epic clashes, but on the friendships that developed between the soldiers on the field.

General's Son
(1990 Im Kwon Taek)

This film is based on a real person in Korean history whom some may regard to be sort of a patriot. As the title may imply he was son of a famous Korean general who recruited militia to fight against the Japanese. This guy was a market protection gangster who was said to have even killed men with single kicks! The pacing of the movie is as lush and operatic as the Godfather and the story immensely enjoyable to follow. Those of you who are interested in yakuza movies and Hong Kong gangster movies try this out for size. One of the best things about this movie is the intense fight scenes; don't expect flying kung fu kicks but they are surprisingly well choreographed and very cool at that. You might like to know that this film was made just before Korean movies started getting their slick, stylish, Hollywood-killer treatment they're getting now. Want to see what Korean films were like before then whilst still managing to pull off some gems?

With "Goldfinger", the James Bond series took a turn away from relatively straightforward spy thrillers and toward campy gadgetry, extravagant sets, and kitschy jokes.

Goldfinger is surrounded by evil henchmen such as the sexy female pilot Pussy Galore (Honor Blackman) and Oddjob (Harold Sakata), who kills with his steel-rimmed bowler hats. In order to stop Goldfinger, Bond has to survive several perilous situations, including a huge, deadly laser.

Good Morning, Vietnam
(1987 Barry Levinson)

In GOOD MORNING, VIETNAM, which is based on a true story, Cronauer (Robin Williams) is a nonconformist with a wicked sense of humor who is transferred from Crete to Saigon.

Outrageous and over the top, Cronauer speaks in accents, creates characters, pokes fun at everyone--including the President--and spins banned rock and roll tunes. While his antics amuse the masses, they also put him in hot water with his superior officers, particularly Lt. Steven Hauk (Bruno Kirby), who would prefer that the radio show be censored, sanitized, and completely noncontroversial. [Touchstone]Region 2

(1967 Mike Nichols)

svensk titel: Mandomsprovet

Few films have defined a generation as much as The Graduate did. The alienation, the nonconformity, the intergenerational romance, the blissful Simon and Garfunkel soundtrack--they all served to lob a cultural grenade smack into the middle of 1967 America, ultimately making the film the third most profitable up to that time. Seen from a later perspective, its radical chic has dimmed a bit, yet it's still a joy to see Dustin Hoffman's bemused Benjamin and Anne Bancroft's deliciously decadent, sardonic Mrs Robinson. The script by Buck Henry and Calder Willingham is still offbeat and dryly funny and Mike Nichols, who won an Oscar for his direction, has just the right, light touch.

Gud, Lukt och Henne
(2008 Karin Westerlund)

Handlar både om så kallade 'verkliga' människor, som en magdansös i Kairo, en fotbollspelare i Madrid och en före detta präst i Indien. Men den handlar också om att skådespelare från olika länder agerar i scener med varandra och även tillsammans med de verkliga människorna. Filmen har en huvudperson som rör sig som en guide mellan scenernoss att det finns mer mellan himmel och jord än vi anar.
