VIENE UNA CHICA

Director: Chema Sarmiento.
Meet Tino, the main character in this comedy. He’s 17 and got something that makes him special: Down syndrome. The movie focuses on a critical part of his life and the circonstances under which he discovers love and its little worries. Tino studies at a Down institute in a spanish provincial city. His world revolves around his school mates on one hand and his sister, Licia and her group on the other hand. Not forgetting Baldo, his cousin, always asking him to bear messages in his trials with Elvira. Apart from their regular school activities, the Down students are rehearsing a theater play for year’s end. Tino is doing the main part along with Logio, his best friend. To him Tino confesses his love for Bego, a girl from the institute. Logio strategically recommends to attend the Church’s services that Bego loves in order to get closer to her. Tino implements the “plan” that proves successful. Baldo has to cope with a tough encounter with Elvira’s father and brother where he get beaten up. But not easily intimidated, he decides to elope with his beloved. Tino is being enlisted for the mission. He has to undertake a series of entertaining tests that enables him to step back from love attraction. Nonetheless, his first personal setback with Bego leaves him terribly disappointed. During a service, she refuses to sit beside him and sends him a terrible gaze. Fortunately, the disappointment doesn’t last long. Soon comes a new girl in town who captivates every boy’s attention in the bar where Tino often meets with his sister Licia. Nacho and Cruz, the two lady-killers of the band go crazy for her. To prove that they are irresistible, they bet on who’s going to conquer the “girl in green” (named Carolina). A few days later, while staring inside a cake-shop, Tino sees Carolina approaching in the window’s reflection. They start to chat and Tino gets the feeling he could win the bet initiated by the boys. He’s ready for any sacrifice like eating up cakes with her, spending all his savings, and so on. The affair ends one afternoon as the three candidates are given the same appointment by the girl (who was told about the bet). Each of the boys finds out they’ve been played. But Nacho and Cruz now realize that Tino is a grown-up man. Another day, Tino is walking in the street with Mina, a girl from his class who needs him to help her pick up a birthday gift. At a shop, they notice Logio and Bego passing by, hand in hand. As she observes Tino’s astonishment, Mina tells him that Logio approached Bego to let her know about Tino’s “plan”. Doing so, he could win her friendship and go out with her. The year’s end performance does not turn out as expected: with Logio not being on stage when his turn arrives, the last act seems jeopardized. As the general confusion is growing, Tino improvises a final that allows him to take his revenge on Logio and stir the audience’s warm applause. Tino has gained the confidence to take a fresh look on life.

Tobruk

Director: Václav Marhoul.
There is only a very thin line between heroism and cowardice. Courage is the will power, which no man has enough to spare. If used, it is soon exhausted. Courage is the capital, which we spend gradually. Thus, the last order may be the order to pay out the account drawing to zero. The deepest fear rises when a man is floundered by a current, all alone, having nothing to hold on and not being able to cope. This is the main topic and the artistic motto of this wartime psychological drama. North Africa, II. WW, Fall 1941. Jiri Pospichal, twenty years old, signs up as a volunteer in the Czechoslovak army. His naive ideas about heroism are rawly confronted with the hell of the African desert, complicated relationships in his unit and the ubiquitous threat of death. All this takes its cruel toll in the shape of his gradual loss of self respect and courage. He is full of self-confidence and patriotic ideals, yet at the same time is deeply frustrated by his father, whom he views as a collaborator. His closest companion is a Jewish soldier, Jan Lieberman, in many ways more mature. Their opposite, in turn, is Corporal Kohák, a former member of the French Foreign Legion, for whom warfare is above all a profession The psychological drama between these three characters, the differing attitudes and personalities of each of them, are, during the course of the story and most clearly in its dramatic climax, brought into confrontation with a clear and harsh test of the moral character of all. The plot of the film is freely based on the classic American novel “The Red Badge of Courage” by Stephen Crane, first published in New York in 1897.
