Bitka na Neretvi (1969)
Hmm....don't like this Yugoslav warflick all that much. Story + acting is hard to feel interested in and it's too gloryfying of the Yugoslavian resistance battling Chechtnics + Germans. Ok...some of the battlescenes are well staged with good explosions and bullits whipping up dirt, etc...Rather chaotic and a little intense. But whenever a partizan is killed or wounded, we are forced to feel ooohh sooooo sad...like if the whole wide world is bleeding/crying.. Irritating as h...!! Orson Welles gets a few bullets in his (f..) belly and tumbles to the ground. Great stunt !!!! Also there's a fine little homage to Sergio Corbucci's DJANGO. We see Franco Nero clutching to a cross with bloodied hands and a "sick" expression on his face. Danish tape runs 126.45 mins...letterboxed about 1:1.70
Dick Turpin (1974)
not two seconds worth coming for !!
Ridiculously baaad film from 1'st to last second...oh boy!! It's a "knock-ém up" comedy in the Trinity-manner...only far far FAR worse. I saw a Danish (ultra rare) x-rental version... running 86.55 mins(pal)...letterboxed...and immediately sold it to a Norwegian collector.
Stunning mix of newsreel and fiction...wow!!
Fantastic little "war" gem this. Stands to reason why it won a Silver Bear at the Berlin Filmfestival once. We are offered visually very beautiful images of documentary footage from world war 2. In an extremely competent manner this material is mixed into a fictitious story about a young soldier´s life and death as a soldier participating in the famous D-Day invasion (Operation Overlord).Don't expect another Saving Private Ryan or The Longest Day.....Overlord is by far too "experimental" for that.Well, it's really impossible to compare these films, but rest assured Overlord will deliver a very unique war movie experience, like you´ve (probably) never seen it before.
Well made and with o.t.top horrorabsurdities making U laff U'r butt off!!
Yes yes....many Danish film critics and splatter/horror-fans have been real busy dismissing this no-budget flick as the worst of the worst. Well...my opinion is they don't know what to look for. For starters...FLÆNSET(SHREDDED) is ok filmed and edited. The director and his crew certainly know their genre territory and plays around with horror/sleaze/xploitation-conventions in a rather amusing manner(in many scenes).This film...with all its shortcomings,yeah sure....is actually a very cleverly arranged piece of gross-out entertainment.Don't look for anything artsy,great classic acting etc...U'll only get disappointed. The gore-score is minimal, but we're not talking serious splatter as in Lucio Fulci. The gory happenings are exaggerated to the "xtreme" and U'll need a grin on your face to really appreciate it.There's a lot of sexual "activities" as well and it's here that Heini Grunbaum delivers truly nice touches. Like where hubby is watching the miss'us getting done by a big stud, who asks her. "So what is your husband really like ?". Moaning of lusty pleasure she replies..."En vattepik" (hanging d...!!!). Ooohh...it is just sooo...funniiii!!! And the scene with the policeman sneaking up on a girl in the shower...uuuhh-huuuhhh!!!???? So.....a lot of good B-horror fun + some promise of talent, makes this little quickie far from the worst Danish movie ever. Actually it's the first "SERIOUS" try in this field and director Heini should take another slap at it again soon...please.
I misteri della giungla nera (1964)
Aaaarrgh....lemme' outta' here.....!!!!
Wooden acting....ridiculous turbans....stuffy tigers...Guy Madison. I was 7 years old when they made this "lame'o"... thank God I didn't saw in at the time...my youth would've been over in a sec. What a crazy world the grownups can make...!!! Seen letterboxed on Italian tv-channel RaiUno, running 82.00 mins, pal. Took me about 22 mins fast-forwarding on my vcr.
Largo retorno (1975)
promising start...good idea...poor film!!
The opening of this romantic muddle is none the less magical. Some piece of classical music is used with great result. Much like Kubrick does with the Schubert piano piece in Barry Lyndon....aahh..well!!?? Anyways....I'm a sucker for great music and images of lovers to be...aaahhh. Remember the little "close U'r eyes"-scene in The Evil Dead, where Ash is charming his way in on a girl by use of jewelry...?? This moment is also great and features some nice romantic music. Ok.....back to A Long....which is typically 70's Euro style. The story is full of baaad cliches + a honymoontrip to Venice. Later on when the young girl (dies and) is frozen down...the now older man is watching the pictures of that trip. And so on, so on, so on.....get the picture now!!?? The Danish video-release is 94.19 mins long(pal)...full screen...very hard to come by, of course!!
Gli amori di Ercole (1960)
cheesy film...different versions/scenes...oohh maaann!!
The totally rare Danish videorelease of this "trashy" film is full screen running 96.00 mins precisely. Italian tv channel RaiUno showed a letterboxed print(1: 1.70 cirka) the other day running ½ a minnute shorter. The 2 versions features a whole bunch of scenes filmed from different/alternative angles and many are diff/alternative takes. Quite "interesting" to compare actually...if you are into this sort of movie-watching. One scene found only in the Danish version shows Miss mansfield (hidden behind some see-through cloth)covering her naked body with some clothes. Extremely...uuhuuhhh...daring!!!!! I give it 5 out of 10.....but "reflecting" on it afterwards is worth a good laugh and....10 !!! Cheers sandal-genre comrades!!!
La femme écarlate (1969)
Sweet, easy and VERY sixties Euro-style....
Ok...nothing really to "upset" you in anyway here...but the atmosphere...colors...Paris...clothes.....music....everything just makes me wanna travel back in time and be a part of this filmproduction. Easy viewing film you can "easily"(!!) label this little Euro gem. Monica Vitti looks wonderful...a bit like Elke Sommer in Mario bava's Lisa And The Devil. But it's lightweight context here...nothing to worry about. No violence...sex....creepiness....just a charming experience which I recommend you check up on any day. I saw the extremely rare danish x-rental version...83.02 mins... letterboxed....english language. Best of all...I'll add it to my collection...no other collector buys this off'a me...nope.
Les séducteurs (1980)
easy viewing and very nice indeed.
There are quite a few memorable scenes. I especially fell for Gene Wilder's story in which he deal with "sexual problems" in a very different manner than U get most of the times in mainsream films. And the music from S N Fever....wow!!! My feet just keep on tappin'!!! The story featuring Lino Ventura has some interesting moral aspects and some good dialogue. And then there's the shot of the young secretary in her see-through dress...now I'll remember that any day!!!! The last installment feat. Ugo Tognazzi has a very unusual scene where he encounters a woman who supposedly is "the original deep throat". Check out her "talents" guys....an' I'm sure many of U will find her...ahh..."interesting"!!!! The first story w. R Moore and D Elliot is instantly forgettable I'll grant U that. Otherwise...this is delightful entertainment, meant to "sweaten" U up...arrite...!!?? Danish videoprint runs 121.35 mins and is fullscreen(looks very good).
Fine little Italian "war" gem here.
Well.....it's not that it's a great movie or anything like that, but it's well made and has some more "lyrical" passages along the way. Not a typical war-movie at all, dealing with "revolution"(= Corbari, the hero) vs. fascism in Italy during w.w.2 Two scenes stand out...especially the first one, which I hold as one of filmhistory's best staged execution-scenes ever!!! Damn fine editing and some passionate music to go with the "emotinal" happenings. Second scene is the finale where, again, people are being executed.This time they're hanged though. In the first one they were shot.Director Orsini has an outspoken flair for these matters it seems. Saw this on Danish videotape....letterboxed 1:1.90 approx.... English language...running 97.18 mins, pal time. Tina Aumont dosn't dress down I'm afraid....but instead we get full frontal male nudity for those into such ah...!!??
