|El PactoReleased in:
Paris Ballardo, Iyali BallardoTags: incestSummary:
When they were children, Sergio and Teresa, brother
and sister, made a promise to never leave each other.
They grow up, and their unusual love becomes stronger.
But Teresa has inherited the mental disease that led
her mother to suicide. She only wants to live with her
brother in her own world, and becomes violent against
the rest of people.
'El pacto' (which means 'The pact') is an intense
Mexican melodrama, with many of its typical excesses,
but also with interesting psychoanalitical elements.
Sergio Véjar (camera operator in some Luis Buñuel's
most popular films) writes and directs this strange
story "based on true facts" with some reminiscences of
Buñuel's melodramas. - V. GomezControversial scenesAdded:
|Le souffle au coeurReleased in:
France, Italy, West GermanyStarring:
Benoît FerreuxTags: bathing boy
This is a jolly coming-of-age story about a 15-year-old boy named Laurent Chevalier who is growing up in bourgeois surroundings in Dijon, France. This is France in the mid-1950s rather than America in the 1990s. Thus, Laurent is unharmed by events which would irreparably shatter the self-esteem of a modern American adolescent: he gets drunk, he smokes, he has sex (including incestuous sex), he is smothered by his mother, he is ignored by his father, a priest makes a pass at him, he gets rheumatoid fever, etc. There's enough scandalous behavior in this film to make 100 made-for-TV movies, and yet this is a very happy and oddly innocent tale. - Tim Horrigan, IMDbControversial scenesAdded:
Felicitas Grimm-Luck, Julia Burger, Rosa Greve, Tina HamperlTags: incestSummary:
A successful author of children's books falls in love with a woman whose very special relationship to her father ends in a horrible nightmare dramatically changing the lives of all persons involved. Leon, an author of children's books, and his eleven-year old daughter Tanja come to Denmark for their holidays. Here, Leon hopes to forget the trauma haunting him since his wife died in a car accident two years ago and keeping him from writing. But the new surrounding does not free him from his burden - until he makes the acquaintance of Roula, a young woman who runs the vacation house rental agency. Leon is captured not so much by her physical attraction, but by the secret that seems to cast a shadow over her life - and by the scars that they share. Roula lives alone with her father in an isolated house. When Leon understands the true character of their relationship, it is already too late - he can no longer stop the avalanche of events triggered off by him. The seemingly intact and harmonious world breaks apart in as much a consistent as cruel manner, leaving the protagonists to pay a high price for their newly achieved freedom.Controversial scenesAdded:
