Beautiful Boxer (2003)


Beautiful Boxer (2003)

Ovo je zaista zapanjujući film , koji sam odgledao u dahu i nakon kojega sam se osijećao kao nakon pročitane dobre knjige! Vrhunska izvedba, gluma, vizuelni efekti, fotografija i iznad svega priča, bazirana na istinitom događaju.
Film nam priča o slavnom tajlandskom kickbokseru Nong Toomu, travestitu kojemu je sudbina predodredila da se bori za opstanak na najmuškiji mogući način prije nego iz sebe oslobodi ženu.
Film mi je pomogao da shvatim narav travestita kojih sam se zbog nepoznavanja na neki način gnušao i odbacivao.
Nong Toom je rođen u jednoj siromašnoj nomadskoj porodici na Thailandu. Odmalena, prinuđen da radi i bori se za opstanak, je otkrivao svoju drugu stranu ličnosti koja je njegovim sazrevanjem postajala sve jača i izraženija.
Nong Toom je sebe oduvijek smatrao ženom, koja je greškom prirode zarobljena u tijelu muškarca. I te kakvog muškarca ! Snažnog , virtuoznog, zgodnog i privlačnog u svakom pogledu.

Siromaštvo u kojem je odrastao ga je natijeralo da nauči da se bori u kickboksu, nacionalnim sportom na Tajlandu (Muay Thai - Thai kickboxing)
Duboko religiozan, kontrast u njegovom tijelu je shvatao kao svoju karmu govoreći : " U predhodnom životu sam činio loše stvari, zato u ovom moram da patim."
Kada ga je učitelj pitao zašto želiš da boksuješ odgovorio je :" Da bih mogao da zaradim novac i kupim povrće za moju majku!"
Uporno trenirajući kickbox, dok se krijući šminkao i u usamljenim trenucima dozvoljavajući sebi da pokaže svoju žensku stranu, želio je samo jedno, da pomogne roditeljima i da zaradi dovoljno novca da postane žena.
Zaista su dirljive scene u kojima se vidi njegov očaj kada mora da se tuče ili trpi poniženja zbog svojeg ponašanja koje kako su godine prolazile nije mogao da sakriva.
Svoje protivnike koje bi nokautirao u ringu bi poljubio sa mislima " žao mi je što sam te povrijedio, ali u ringu nema drugog izbora.!"
Na vrhuncu slave kada je postao nacionalni prvak u kickboxu, počeo je da uzima ženske hormone koji sumu oduzimali snagu i muškost, prijeko potrebnu za taj surovi sport. Inače na Thauilandu je zabranjeno ženama da se bave tim sportom.
Danas je Nong Toom ( Parinaya Charoemphol ) žena, glumica koja živi u Bangkoku. Ostao je poznati ritual na ringu koji je kao kickboxer izvodio prije svake borbe najljepšeg tajlandskog borca u ringu!
Gledajući ovaj film , pratičete odrastanje i transformaciju Parinaje u ženu.

Beautiful Boxer is a 2003 Thai biographical-drama-sports film by Singapore-based director Ekachai Uekrongtham. It tells the life story of Nong Thoom, a famous kathoey (male-to-female transgendered person), Muay Thai fighter, actress and model. She was portrayed by male kickboxer Asanee Suwan.



Based on the true story of Thailand's famed transgender kickboxer, Beautiful Boxer is a poignant action drama that punches straight into the heart and mind of a boy who fights like a man so he can become a woman.



Believing he's a girl trapped in a boy's body since childhood, Parinya Charoenphol (affectionately known as Nong Toom in Thailand) sets out to master the most masculine and lethal sport of Muay Thai (Thai boxing) to earn a living and to achieve his ultimate goal of total femininity. Touching, funny and packed with breathtaking Thai kickboxing sequences, Beautiful Boxer traces Nong Toom's childhood, teenage life as a traveling monk and grueling days in boxing camps. Shot in 9 provinces across Thailand and in Tokyo, the film also features a series of explosive matches where Nong Toom knocks out most of his opponents in Thailand and Japan.

Directed and produced by Ekachai Uekrongtham, the film stars Asanee Suwan, a real-life kickboxing champ as Nong Toom. The role earned him the 2004 Supannahongsa Award (Thailand's equivalent to the Oscar) for Best Actor. Beautiful Boxer also features compelling performances by Thailand's award-winning actor Sorapong Chatree in the role of Nong Toom's coach and former Miss Thailand
Orn-Anong Panyawong as Nong Toom's mother.

Kyoko Inoue, one of Japan's top female wrestlers plays herself in the film. She has fought with Nong Toom in real life back in 1988. That historical match was reenacted for the film in a dramatic sequence shot at Toyko Dome. Nearly all of Nong Toom's opponents in the film are also professional kickboxers in real life.

Beautiful Boxer has been officially selected for the Panorama Section of the 2004 Berlin International Film Festival. It’s the only Thai film in the 2004 Panorama.
He is now a she. In real life, Nong Toom's dream has come true after undergoing a sex-change operation in 1999. Now a model and actress based in Bangkok, Nong Toom can no longer fight in the ring. Women are not allowed in professional boxing rings for men in Thailand.

Born into a poor family of nomads, Nong Toom spent his childhood traveling around the country with his family before settling down in Chiangmai province in the Northern part of Thailand. Prior to his big match in Bangkok in February 1998, he'd won 20 out of 22 matches in many provinces. He's feared by his opponents for his trademark swooping kicks, flying elbows and stinging uppercuts. His deadly prowess in the ring made it hard for the public to understand his ambition of becoming a woman.

Undoubtedly one of Thailand's best known kickboxers, Nong Toom is admired by many for his courage and despised by others who accused him of tarnishing the masculine image of Thai kickboxing.

Presque Rien (2000) Come Undone


Presque rien (2000)


U zadnja dva mjeseca sam nekako osamljen, Ispočetka mi je prijala samoća , ali sada mi teško pada. Baš mi nedostaje....on
Noćas mi je kao i uvijek poželio laku noć, al teško da može biti laka kada ti neko toliko nedostaje. Tješi me da ćemo se uskoro vidjeti!
Po netu sam malo surfovao i nisam našao ništa što bi bilo vrijedno pomena u ovom blogu.
Zato sam izvukao stare DVD i prelistao filmove koje imam.
Učinjelo mi se da sam ranije predstavio ovaj film , ali pregledavajući blog ustanovio sam da ga nema, kao ni Grande Ecole.
A obadva filma su vrijedna za svaku kolekciju filmova sa ovom tematikom.
Presque rien ili Come Undone je film o prvoj mladenačkoj ljubavi. Osamnaestogodišnji Mathieu dolazi na ljetovanje sa depresivnom majkom i sestrom.
I tu upoznaje Cedrica , lokalnog momka koji i ne krije previše da je gay. Nastaje prava ljubavna romansa. Prva ljubav se zauvijek pamti, zar ne.
Nastavak možda već znate iz vlastitog iskustva. Iza svake prve ljubavi dolazi druga, pa treća i tako dok ne naiđete na onu koja traje čitav život.
Ovaj film nam priča priču o onoj prvoj, o dilemama , strepnji, strahu, o želji da vam se svaki trenutak produži.
Interesantan film koji se nemože svrstati u stereotipne gay coming out filmove. Majka iako depresivna prihvata sina onakvim kakav jeste, sestra takođe iako ponekad zlobno, Cedericov otac koji pita Mathieua: "Jesi i ti momak od mog sina" čine da ovaj film nema onu tragičnost odbacivanja koje srećemo u sličnim filmovima.
Toplo Vam preporučujem da pogledate ovu romansu.
Na ovaj film je priljepljen engleski titl pa se nadam da vam neće biti problem da ga pogledate.

English:

Presque rien (meaning Almost Nothing, which is also the UK release title; the U.S. title is Come Undone) is a 2000 French film directed by Sebastien Lifshitz, depicting a stormy romance between two 18-year-olds (One who is upper middle class and another who is working class) set in Brittany and what remains of that relationship eighteen months later.
Mathieu (Jérémie Elkaďm), is spending his summer vacation at the sea before starting to attend college in the fall to become an architect. His mother is deeply depressed because of the death of his baby brother from cancer, and he and his snotty younger sister cannot get along.

Then he meets Cedric at the beach (Stéphane Rideau, also the object of gay desires in several films, including Les roseaux sauvages), who is attractive and obviously looking for a boyfriend.

After the first shy kisses and embraces, the two boys begin a steamy affair, and Lifshitz does not hesitate to show that with realism.

A parallel plotline focuses on Mathieu eighteen months later, as he is recovering from the shock of their separation. Mathieu having tried to commit suicide, his psychiatrist sends him back to the small seaside town to learn to deal with what happened. While Lifshitz does not explicitly say why their relationship failed, the impression is conveyed that their characters are simply too different.

The film ends on a hopeful note, when Mathieu meets Pierre (Nils Ohlund), another former boyfriend of Cedric's, and finally gets the feeling he has found someone who understands him.

The Truth About Alex (1986) (TV)


The Truth About Alex (1986) (TV)


Jutros samo pogledao ovaj film, uz jutarnju kafu. Iako je ovaj tv film snimljen 1986, napravljen je u maniru 70-tih godina. Ipak nije ga loše pogledati , poneko bi mogao i da nauči nešto o prijateljstvu i kako ga očuvati.
Ova Tv drama je snimljena za kandsku Global tv prema noveli Ann Snyder, Counterplay.
Brad Stevens je sin majora američke vojske koji želi da se upiše na West Point akademiju. On i negov najbolji prijatelj Alex su ujedno i najbolji igrači u školskom ragbi timu. Alex je pianist kojemu je muzika važnija od ragbija iako je jednako dobar u muzici kao i u sportu.
Nakon što ga na jednoj benziskoj stanici napadne neki suludi vozač, i pred policijom kaže za njega da je gay , Alex prizna svoju homoseksualnu prirodu. Nakon što je to rekao i Bradu, ovaj sav u šoku iz početka odbaci njegovo prijateljstvo, da bi vec' sutradan odlučio da se bori za njega. U školskom klubu nakon što saznaju da je Alex gay počnu da ga odbacuju, provociraju i ponižavaju. Brad ostaje istrajan i vijeran drug, neskriveno svima govoreći da mu je Alex najbolji prijatelj.
Priča je dirljiva aii i poučna. U stvarnom životu moji najbolji prijatelji su str8, ali da li bi to bili i da znaju za moju sexualnu opredeljenost?!
Za neke sam siguran da bi mi i dalje bili prijatelji, a za neke ne.
Ova kopija koju sam pronašao na net je jako loša , očito snimana na VHS direktno sa TV-a,
( uključujući i reklame) pa onda ripovana na DVD. Zato je snimak jako loš, ali se može pogledati.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Truth About Alex is a 1986 made-for-television short film. Based on the book Counterplay by Ann Snyder, The Truth About Alex tells the story of Alex Prager, a high school student who is inadvertently outed as gay and the difficulty his best friend Brad has in coming to terms with it. The telefilm stars Scott Baio as Brad and Peter Spence as Alex.

The film was a Canadian-American co-production, airing in the United States on Home Box Office. The Truth About Alex received a 1987 Gemini Award for Best Short Drama and one for Best Photography in a Dramatic Program or Series and was nominated for two additional awards. The film also received a CINE Golden Eagle Award

This 1986 HBO movie tackles the subject of homosexuality in a high-school setting. Brad Stevens (Scott Baio), the West Point-bound son of an Army major (Michael J. Reynolds), spends his time at football practice and hanging out with his best friend, Alex Prager (Peter Spence), who's an accomplished pianist as well as an athlete. When Alex spurns a truck driver (Barry Greene) who comes onto him in a service-station rest room, a scuffle ensues, and the guy claims that it was Alex who hit on him. The story gets out around school, but Alex doesn't deny it; he confesses to Brad that he actually is gay. Although Brad's initial reaction is shock and outrage, he slowly realizes that Brad is the same wonderful friend he's always been. Such loyalty doesn't sit well with Kay (Jessica Steen), Brad's status-conscious girlfriend, or with his stern father. Things come to a head the night of the football team's championship game, when the rift between Brad and the rest of the student body threatens the school's chance at going undefeated for the third year running. Adapted from Anne Snyder and Louis Pelletier's 1981 novel Counter Play, The Truth About Alex won a cable-TV Ace Award. In addition to Baio, who was a teen heartthrob at the time of its release, The Truth About Alex starred future sci-fi and TV fixture Steen. ~ Brian J. Dillard, All Movie Guide

The Day Laborers - aka: Los Jornaleros (2003)


The Day Laborers - aka: Los Jornaleros (2003)

Ovaj film se zasigurno nemože svrstati u remek dijela filmske umjetnosti, a diskutabilno je da li bi se utopio u moru prosijecčno dobrih filmova sa LGB tematikom. Međutim ono što ga čini gledljivim je njegova jednostavnost i spontanost, a to je taman ono što nam treba nakon obilnog nedeljnog rucčka.
Film opisuje muke Meksičkih imigranata u Americi. Počev od toga da teško nalaze posao, slabo govore jezik, a u velikim gradovima se teško uklapaju u američki način življenja. Još ako ilegalno borave u SAD, prisiljeni su da rade poslove "rezervisane" samo za najslabije plaćene radnike.
Iz tih razloga upadaju u razne neprilike, često se bave kriminalom , prostitucijom , drogom...
Film nam priča tri pric(e o Meksikancima koji su ilegalno prešli američku granicu i pokušavaju da nađu posao.
Odrasli u sasvim drugačijoj kulturi i poimanja moralnosti, ograničeni su osim mnogih zakonskih problema i svojim tradicionalnim vaspitanjem.
Kolika konfuzija nastane kada se jedan od njih zaposli kod coming out pedera i pri tome i sam dovede u pitanje svoju seksualnu orijentaciju saznac'e te u ovom filmu.

Director: Lane Shefter
Writers: Michael Lewis (written by)
Jose Nevarez (story)
Genre: Drama
Plot Outline: Los Jornaleros presents the interwoven stories of three
young Hispanic men who come to this country to pursue te American
dream and instead end up struggling as day-laborers.

Runtime: USA:88 min

Language: Spanish

English:

Three Mexican cousins illegally cross the U.S. border and try to make a living as day laborers in Los Angeles. The pressures their new living situation brings threatens to tear them apart.
Quick review: One of the storylines gets a little melodramatic, butthis film has a lot of heart. It demonstrates the plight of immigrants struggling for a living in an honest manner. Tura, Pillo and Quique cross the border and find shelter with a relative livingin Los Angeles. They begin looking for work like many others,standing in a specific spot hoping someone needs a day laborer and will stop by to pick them up. Each of the three then has his own storyline. Two of the three look for an easier life, one in the armsof a married woman and the other through drugs. The third meets a gay art dealer who seems a little too interested in him. The drug storyline is the one that gets a little too melodramatic, and you always know that in the end the family will pull together. The gay angle is secondary in this film, but overall it's a good film and anyone interested in immigrant issues will enjoy it.

Gymnastikos: Power and Grace (1993)

VOLITE LI GIMNASTIKU?

Ako je odgovor potvdan, onda je ovo pravi film za vas.
Često sam gledajući gimnastičke vježbe na raznim takmičenjima razmišljao o tome kako to i nije neki sport, već umjetnost koja na jedan poseban način pokazuje snagu i eleganciju tijela.
Ovaj film nam prikazuje upravo to. Goli i polugoli gimnastičari nam kroz jednu skoro baletsku predstavu prikazuju svu ljepotu, eleganciju, snagu i virtuoznost muškog tijela.
Gimnastičari, uglavnom iz Istočne Evrope, kroz režisersko oko Layne Derricka nam prikazuju ovaj sport na jedan drugačiji način, koji možemomo samo naslutiti gledajući njihova takmičenja.
Nakon ovog filma , možete vidjeti trailere za neke filmove iz iste produkcijeske kuće. Zanimljivi su!

ENGLISH:
Hypnotic and unusual, this balletic appreciation of the male form in motion features five world-class gymnasts who are filmed while warming up and performing incredible gymnastic exercises. Self-described by the makers as "the video equivalent of a 'high-end' coffee table book," the hook for this visually stunning video is that the young men, all from Eastern Europe, are seen both with and without their clothing. The nudity, gratuitous to some, enjoyable to others, helps in revealing the amazing strength and fluidity of the athletes. Producer and director Layne Derrick was determined to create a gymnastic art film with men in the nude, remarking, "We thought our biggest challenge would be finding top, internationally ranked gymnasts willing to perform without clothes. We learned that nudity was not an important issue to Europeans."

For centuries, millions of people around the world have watched in awe as gymnasts perform their athletic feats with amazing strength and elegance. Experience these remarkable performances first hand in the artful study of male motion and fluidity. Classically presented, this video production focuses on the male human form in the nude and the eloquence of skills refined over the years by five magnificent Easter European, world ranked competitive athletes. Gymanstikos: Power and Grace is an inspiring gymnastic experience of sheer will, intensity and graceful beauty.

NaPolA (2004), Before the Fall


NaPolA (2004), Before the Fall


Iako se ovaj film nemože svrstati u neki gay film, stavio sam ga u ovaj blog. Film je nabijen energijom , čvrstinom , snagom, emocijama..
Smješten u vrijeme trećeg rajha, 1942, godine u vrijeme kada su nacisti vladali Njemačkom, ovaj film nam približava sav fanatizam tog doba.
NaPoIA je elitna nacistička škola u kojoj se surovo obučavaju novi naci-ratnici, disciplonovane, nesalomljive ubice. Kroz tu školi je do 1945. godine prošlo oko 15.000 studenata, fanatizovanih robotizovanih ratnika.
Film obrađuje priču o prijateljstvu i ljubavi između dva učenika te škole. Friedrich je tinejđer iz niže klase tadašnjeg Njemačkog društva, ali je talentovani boxer. U jednom meču zapazi ga jedan od direktora škole NaPolA i predloži mu da podnese aplikaciju za upis u najelitniju školu tog vremena. Friedrich je oduševljen ponudom, a odlazak u tu školu vidi i kao bijeg iz siromaštva svoje porodice.
Na toj akademiji upoznaje Albrechta, sina direktora škole, sa kojim stvara neobično jako prijateljstvo ko je u uslovima u kakvim su se našli i nesmije biti iskazivano sa previše emocija.

Prolaze kroz neviđenu torturu koju im naće škola, učeći vojne tehnike, borilačke vještine, oružje i sve što je nephodno kako bi ih jednog dana poslali na front.
Albrecht je slabiji i fizički i emotivno od Friedricha , ali uz njegovu pomoć uspijeva nekako da seodrži u školi. Uz to njegov otac je toliki fanatik da nema samilosti čak ni prema sopstvenom sinu.

Film je nagrađivan na mnogim festivalima, kao što su:

* Best Direction, Bavarian Film Awards, 2005
* Best international film, Hamptons International Film Festival, 2004
* Best Actor, Max Riemelt, Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, 2004
* Best film, Viareggio EuropaCinema, 2004

English:

As Hitler launches the first major military aggressions of World War II, the strongest and smartest German young men enter exclusive schools known as "Napolas" to train as future leaders of the Third Reich. In 1942, a recruiter from one such Napola sets his sights on Friedrich, a talented adolescent boxer, who sees the training and prestige offered by the Napola as his ticket out of an impoverished family unit run by his anti-Nazi father.
In the Napola, Friedrich learns to fight without pity, becoming a formidable killing machine. Propagandistic classes reinforce a hardened worldview of his Aryan superiority.
Meanwhile, Friedrich forms a bond with fellow cadet Albrecht Stein, an aspiring writer and son of the local Nazi governor. Governor Stein dotes on Friedrich, barely masking his contempt for his own son’s sensitivity. But Friedrich admires and empathizes with his friend, even though Albrecht criticizes Friedrich’s brutality in the ring.
As the war escalates, the school's military training also intensifies. Unscrupulous trainers humiliate the more vulnerable cadets in front of their peers and send the others out on dubious war game exercises. In one such nightmarish event, they instruct Friedrich and Albrecht to shoot escaping POW’s who turn out to be unarmed Russian civilians. Tormented with guilt, Albrecht rebels, and Friedrich must choose between his sworn allegiance to the Fuehrer and his best friend’s moral. imperative.

Go West (2005)

Go West (2005)

Valjda zbog vremena u kojem je ovaj film smješten, film nije po mom ukusu, ima previše mržnje i generalizacije prema ljudima.
Očito da su rane koje je nanio međunacionalni rat u bivšoj Jugoslaviji još previše svježe u dušama mnogih ljudi koji su preživjeli strahote i razaranja koja su se na specifičan način dešavala na našim područjima.
Bilo kako bilo ova ljubavna gay tragi-komedija je smještena u Bosni i Hercegovini koja je uz Hrvatsku bila najviše pogođena destruktivizmu ljudske rase.
U takvim vremenima je nemoguće ostati netaknut i emociaonalno i fizički.
Na početku filma možemo čuti sledeće: Srbi koji su pravoslavci mrze muslimane, muslimani koji su muslimani nevole srbe, ima tu i hrvata koji su katolici koji se nekad vole sa muslimanima, a nekad se nevole. Trenutno mislim da se nevole. Al i to će da stane jedan dan, odložiće se oružje na stranu, pokolji će da se zaborave, al će jednako da mrze homoseksualce." Šta li su im pederi skrivili? ( prim. autora)

Glavni akteri ove ljubavne gay drame su srbin Milan i musliman Kenan, koji su se zatekli u Sarajevu u vrijeme ratnih dešavanja.
Milan uporno govori Kenanu "biježimo na zapad" , samo tako ćemo se spasiti , svjestan balkanskog ludila koje se ko epidemija širila Sarajevom.
Pošto su srbi ubijali muslimane gdje god su ih zatekli, i pri tome je svaki muškarac morao da pokaže svoje genitalije, kako bi se utvrdilo dali je obrezan ili ne u jednoj krvavoj srpskoj raciji Milanu padne na pamet da Kenana preobuče u ženu, kako bi izbjegao pokazivanje kurca i sigurnu smrt.
Pošto je Milan svojim drugarima uredno pokazao kitu , pri čemu se utvrdilo da nije Musliman, a Kenana predstavio kao svoju ženu Milenu, uspjeli su da izađu iz Sarajeva i pobjegnu u Milanovo selo, kod njegovog oca Ljuba. Naravno Kenana predstavi kao svoju dijevojku Milenu, pa otac sav oduševljen što mu sin napokon ima curu odluči da ga oženi, prije nego ih pošalje na zapad. I bi svadba, svi se Srbi toliko ponapijaše na svadbi da niko nije ni posumljao u kenanovu ženstvenost.
Međutim da se stvar zakomlikuje Milana pozovu u vojsku, pa Kenan, tj Milena mora ostati sa ocem Ljubom dok se Milan ne vrati i ne srede papiri za zapad.
Kenen je imao sreće jer otac Ljubo slabo vidi, pa nije primjetio da mu snaja piša stojeći. Tu se onda pojavljuje Ranka, napaljena samohrana majka, koja nikome nesmije da kaže ko je otac njenom sinu.
Kenan ( Milena) i Ranka postaju prijateljice. Jednom prilikom Ranka provali da Milena ima kitu i oduševi se. Milena zadigne suknju i pošteno izjebe Ranku, kojoj se to toliko dopalo da se naprosto zaljubila u Ljubinu snaju. Da bi Kenen bio samo njen , baca čini da Milan pogine u ratu.
Kada je stigla tužna vijest da je Milan poginuo, Milena nema kud i prizna Ljubu da je muško. Ljubo da bi sačuvao obraz sinu , a i svoj, Kenanu daje novac i papire za zapad. Kenan je uspio da se domogne Holandije i da na televiziji u jednom intervjuu kaže kako još nezna šta se tamo stvarno desilo.
Predpostavljam da sada svi neobrezani holandski pederi jure u Beograd, prijestonicu srba kako bi jedni drugima pokazivali kite i tako utvrđivali svoju nacionalnost.
Na žalost film nam nije otkrio misteriju kako su Hrvati utvrđivali ko je musliman ,a ko srbin i kako su muslimani utvrđivali ko je srbin a ko hrvat?
Jesu li i hrvati obrezani?
Eto tako otprilike izgleda ova crna komedija u kojoj je balkanska apsurdnost izmješana sa crnim humorom prevazišla samu sebe!

English:

A Muslim cellist and a Serbian student make a desperate attempt to hide their love long enough to escape from war-torn Bosnia before the truth about their sexuality is revealed and they are put to death. Serbian aggression in Sarajevo is escalating, and now, due to his faith, Kenan's life is in grave danger. Should he be questioned, Kenan will almost certainly be put to death. Now, in order to escape to freedom, Kenan will pose as a woman and take the role of Milan's wife. Should the ruse work, the couple may be able to make it to Holland. Yet while the villagers in Milan's hometown seem convinced that Kenan is indeed Milan's bride, the powers that be may not be persuaded so easily.

Ahmed Imamovic’s debut film takes a risk that somehow works -– it’s a movie that exhibits exhilarating changes in mood as daringly impressive as anything found in the works of John Ford or Frank Capra. The time is 1992, when war gripped Sarajevo. Kenan (Mario Drmac) and Milan (Tarik Filpovic) are young and in love. And if being gay is difficult in more reasonable times and places, it is just about impossible here, where prejudice against homosexuality is especially heightened in the Balkans. And so, Kenan, who is Muslim, and Milan, a Serb, attempt to escape to Milan’s father’s home in Eastern Bosnia. When they are stopped by soldiers along the way, they have to think fast: after all, Kenan is uncircumcised, a dead giveaway that he is a Muslim. The guys get around the body check by passing Kenan off as a woman – as Milena, Milan’s finance. Meanwhile, Milan’s father (played by the iconic Rade Serbedzija), delighted with the idea of a new daughterin- law, prepares wedding festivities for Milan and “Milena”/Kenan. Imamovic’s film swings rather breathlessly from knockabout farce to wartime tragedy, filling in the space between with colorful characters, such as the randy Ranka (Mirjana Karanovic), who solves a personal problem when she befriends “Milena.” Imamovic twists and pulls his audience with a rare confidence, successfully having his way with our emotions. The result is a movie that keeps surprising us -– as well as itself. Look for Jeanne Moreau in a brief cameo towards the climax.

Masahista (2005) - The Masseur

U Blogu sam već postavio Dva Filipinska filma, Bathhouse (2005) i The Man in the Lighthouse (Lalake sa Parola, Ang (2007)

Dvadesetogodišnji Iliac radi kao maser u jednom lokalu gdje se uz masažu uglavnom podrazumijeva sex. Dok masira klijente Iliac sluša njihove životne priče , tješi ih kad zatreba i ukoliko plate sve to začini seksom.
Tipična prostitucija na dalekoistočni način.
Ljubaznost i spremnost da se udovolji klijentu je sastavni dio posla.
Kada Ilijacu umre otac, porodica ga zove da se vrati kući i da se prihvati novih obaveza koje se od njega očekuju. Hladna majka, nervozna cura, neodgovorni brat učine mu se manje prijatnim nego ono što doživljava i osijeća na poslu....

English:

Following the death of his father and a chance meeting with an abusive romance novelist, a masseur working in a gay massage parlor struggles to make sense of his unfulfilling relationships while simultaneously assisting his mother in preparing his father for burial. Twenty-year-old Iliac (Coco Martin) may not be the best masseur in the parlor, but when he catches the eye of a cold and calculated romance novelist looking for a cheap thrill, the icy indifference displayed by his paying lover does little more to warm the spirits than his sexually charged but emotionally distant girlfriend. Despite the resentment Iliac feels towards his late father for abandoning the family and embarking on a suicidal alcohol binge, the lovelorn youth nevertheless makes the journey home to be there for his grieving mother in her time of need. As he prepares his father for burial and his mind wanders back to the previous night's encounter at the massage parlor, Iliac's increasingly complex love life disturbingly begins to mirror his troubled family life. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Before Night Falls (2000)




Before Night Falls (2000)

Čitajući kritike o ovom filmu na internetu, odlučio sam da ga pokušam naći i pogledati. Nakon dosta pokušaja uspio sam ga pronaći na jednom blogu i skinuti ga preko rs. Nisam se pokajao.
Film je zasnovan na memoarima kubanskog pisca homoseksualca Reinaldo-a Arenas-a koji je 1980. godine izgnan sa Kube koga glumi Javier Bardem. Bardem je poznat našoj publici po mačo ulogama u filmovima španske produkcije, a Before night falls je prvi njegov film u kome glumi na engleskom i koji mu je otvorio vrata u Holivud.
Ovo je priča o gej muškarcu koji je rođen na Kubi 1943 godine i umire u New Yorku 1980. Film prati njegov život, kako je biti gej na Kubi i obrađuje probleme koje on ima kao pisac i homoseksualac, kako je proganjan i kako napušta Kubu i dobija egzil u New York-u.
Kroz život ovog pisca možemo ponešto saznati o gay populaciji na Kubi, njihovom načinu života prije i poslije revolucije.
Reinaldo Arenas na zaista specifičan način prati i piše o dešavanjima koja ga se dotiču u ta vremena, sa posebnim osvrtom kako je biti gay na Kubi.


Ovaj film vam toplo preporučujem da pogledate. Na žalost film je titlovan na Turskom jeziku, ali pošto je audio na Engleskom može se pogledati!
Ako neko nađe linkove za ovaj film bez ikakovog titla molim da mi ga pošalje!Gvala

Kako je u filmu Javier Bardem tj. Reinaldo Arenas klasifikovao homoseksualce.

" Da li si primetio da postoje četiri tipa gejeva?

Prvi, on je gej lajavac. Glasan je, pokazuje svima da je gej, nema granica u menjanju partnera, stalno ga hapse, sistem mu drži ogrlicu oko vrata da ga obuzdaju i privedu u kamp za rehabilitaciju.

Drugi je obican gej. Ima vezu sa gejevima, posao, klub u koji izlazi, voli da pije čaj sa svojim gej prijateljima. Piše pesme, tu i tamo i ima odnose samo sa ostalim gejevima. Nikad ne rizikuje i ne upoznaje prave ljude.

Treći, to je prikriveni gej. Niko ne zna da je on gej. Oženjen je ima decu, krije se na putu u javni WC i dalje nosi prsten što mu ga je žena dala. Teško se opaze ali se lako čuju. I najcešce su oni ti koji osuđuju druge gejeve.

I četvrti, kraljevski gej. Jedinstveni proizvod naše komunisticke zemlje. Zbog svoje bliskosti sa vođom ili rada za specijalnu službu, može priuštiti sebi da bude otvoreni gej, da putuje slobodno po zemlji i inostranstvu. Nosi skup nakit i lepu odeću, čak ima i svog privatnog šofera."

Sve napred navedeno uz male prepravke može se primeniti i na naše društvo.

English:

Before Night Falls is the harrowing story of Cuban writer Reinaldo Arenas (1943-1990). Arenas was a homosexual in Cuba during Castro's reign, a very bad time for gays. If anything, Before Night Falls serves as a good introduction to Arenas' life. Writer/director Julian Schnabel (Basquiat) adapted Arenas' memoirs (published posthumously in 1993), and combined them with some of Arenas' other works and some remembrances from other people. This film comes highly anticipated, after winning the Grand Jury Prize and the 2000 Volpi Cup for Best Actor at the 2000 Venice Film Festival for actor Javier Bardem.

The movie starts with Arenas' (Bardem, The Dancer Upstairs, Live Flesh) childhood. He grew up on a farm where his teachers quickly realized he had a talent for poetry. He later joined the Revolution and moved to Havana, where he attended The University of Havana. There he began many relationships with men, including Pepe Malas (Andrea Di Stefano, Almost Blue, The Phantom of the Opera). Later, Arenas landed in jail after being falsely accused of molestation. Even in jail, he was able to write, and eventually made his way to America, where he lived the last decade of his life.

Bardem's job as Arenas is amazing. He easily makes the transformation from idealistic young man to an older, AIDS-afflicted man living in New York. Johnny Depp (Blow, Chocolat) and Sean Penn (Sweet and Lowdown, Up at the Villa) show up, although both are nearly unrecognizable. Arenas does have a harrowing life, especially in his latter days in Cuba, and Bardem's performance shows his waning exuberance and growing disillusionment with Cuba. Bardem's Arenas seems innocent and almost happy-go-lucky, although he is certainly aware of the danger he is constantly in.
video
This movie is best suited for those unfamiliar with Arenas. It is essentially a biography of events, with little insight as to why Arenas was who he was. Except for one or two excerpts, there is also little of his work in the movie. He meets other Cuban literary figures, but the movie does not identify any of them. The only way to know who they are is to know beforehand that Arenas met them in the first place. One reason may be that while he was a prolific writer, most of his works came during his time in the States. He published only one book in Cuba, another was smuggled to France, and both incurred the wrath of the government. There are so many unanswered questions about Arenas himself. At the end of the film, he is still a mystery.

Night Watch (2005)
"Ronda nocturna" (original title)



Director: Edgardo Cozarinsky

Genre: Drama
Country: Argentina, France
Language: Spanish
Duration: 81 min
Year: 2008



Stars: Gonzalo Heredia, Mariana Anghileri, Rafael Ferro





Ovaj argentiski film me definitifvno nije oduševio . Ipak sam gledao i gore od njega.
Gluma nije loša kao ni sama režija filma, ali sam priča filma je nekako nedorečena.
Victor, 20-togodišnji mladić , nižerazredni narkodiler koji se bavi i prostitucijom u Buenos Airesu, kruži gradom po raznim klubovima i javnim kupatilima sa prijateljima koje srecće po ulicama.
Kroz ovu filmsku priču Viktor nas upoznaje sa svijetom prostitucije, tranvestita, narkomana, pedera, beskućnika, ukratko sa samim dnom svakog društva.
U ovom filmu sa jako malo dijaloga režiser Edgardo Cozarinsky nam prikazuje jednu mračnu stranu Buenos Airesa, prepunu mizerije i nepravde. Nedorečenost samog filma bi valjda trebalo da nam ostavi prostora da nakon filma razmislimo o tome.



This dark, sensitive tale of an atypical night in the life of Victor, a 20-year-old Buenos Aires prostitute, puts a fresh, intelligent twist on the frequently told drama of young male hustlers. Victor plies his trade in a foreboding, seedy world with its nocturnal denizens – horny businessmen, drug addicts, fellow prostitutes, transvestites, and the homeless- and the threat of violence simmering just below the surface of most encounters. Projecting a cool nonchalance bordering on insensitivity, the handsome, mop-haired young Victor feels at peace with both this world and his trade.
The night, however, quickly takes on an ominous feel after he narrowly escapes being hit by a car right after midnight and the beginning of All Souls Days. He is haunted by this brush with death, and as the night wears on, other incidents – threatening strangers, a friend who almost kills him after sex, the remembrance of a past love – combine to create for Victor, a subtle, surreal urban odyssey.
Veteran director Edgardo Cozarinsky weaves a fascinating portrait of a young man forced to confront his past, his present and his future. (Spanish with English subtitles)

„Srećko" uvek trudio da živi prema očekivanjima drugih – kao njegova dosadna

automobilske nesreće, kada se na misteriozan način spasio sigurne smrti.
Upoznaje neke čudne ljude: starog čoveka s bebom, damu iz starih vremena koja

Njihova jedina poruka je: „Vrati ono što nije tvoje. Imaj poštovanja." On

studija do idiličnog imanja, bićemo u prilici da iskusimo ono što Eni trenutno
radi, kao i stvaranje najnovije knjige retrospektive, videćemo njene padove, ali
i velike uspehe.

Mlada žena po imenu Saša studira u Omahi, u Nebraski, pošto je napustila
Peking gde je ostala u drugom stanju sa Jangom. Zvezda pekinške opere, Jang,
izbačen je iz trupe zbog svojih skandaloznih susreta sa Amerikancem, Bošenom.
Sada prodaje svoje telo na ulicama Pekinga, prekinuvši sve veze sa oboje
ljubavnika, iako oni i dalje pokušavaju da stupe u kontakt s njim. U Sašinu
priču ulazimo u trenutku kada ju je Bošen našao pokušavajući da privuče Janga u
Ameriku tako što će zasnovati porodicu sa Sašom i njenom bebom. Uz romantični
San Francisko i mogućnosti koje su pred njom, Saša počinje da razmišlja o svojim
namerama i budućnosti, naročito posle susreta sa prostitutkom X i sklapanja
prijateljstva s njom.
