It's incredible how much you remember of those movies you watched so many years ago. A shame you don't remember the title, though. Sorry, can't help you with the Dutch ones. Doesn't ring a bell.

I already became helpless seeing that these above went to hell. Now it's time to ask for mainstream, feature-length films that I've seen in the past and wasn't able to track down at IMDb, using all resources possible.

1) Germany, 1988 - Data is pretty scarce for these two informations I have, but I'll just try it here... Actually set in the 1960s German small town, tells a story about group of friends. The leading guy is the radio DJ, he keeps playing popular song of the time which are this movie's soundtrack (I feel it in my fingers, Wild Thing, etc). His girlfriend is Italian named Gabriela and works in a pizza restaurant. At the very end of the movie they break up and he invites her over radio to come back to him, she U-turns her cabriolet in the middle of highway after a bit of reluctance.
The main gag in this film comes near end, when one of these guys needs to pass an exam. His friends help him do it by parking this VW Bus (the old model) with complete radio equipment in it, right next to the faculty, previously bondaging his arm and putting a mic into it. Then they read right answers to him, right after they'd hear the professors' questions.
Eventually the film ends by Procol Harum's hit and Nights in White Satin.
Plenty of stereotypes and lame jokes, but somewhat cute. The film is dubbed to English but it's completely German flick. You can even see some Goggomobils and Isettas in the background.

More to come

Probably totally wrong as it's from the 60s not 1988 and it's in Italian but http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0164132/

2) UK/Sweden, 1987 - A Swedish 17-year old girl comes to England to work, where she finds job as a nanny to 11-year old four-eyed spoiled brat. He keeps tormenting her and acting like sort of kid you wanna beat up properly, but after he breaks some vase or whatever, Swedish chick tells his parents she did it herself. The kid becomes grateful but she gets fired and is already on her way back home. During these last few days they became friends and hang around London walking, making photos and such.

3) UK, 1990s - A 13-year old son of elderly parents, comes to a small, foggy English little town to spend a holiday. There he befriends a small circle of his peers, but his old father wants to drag him around for a boring weekend, making photos of churches and stuff. The kid somehow avoids this boredom by hanging out with these kids, but somehow never manages to become close with a girl who came from Utrecht, Netherlands. Eventually the two were left alone during night out, and somewhere in the bushes he gets his first sex.
This film is actually good.

4) Australia, 1987 - A teenage high school drama set in some sort of a immigrant/Aboriginal community. 90% of the pupils are either Aborigins, Hindus, black people and there's very few whiteys there. It follows paralell stories intertwined together: a Hindu girl who works in the school's data center tries to steal the answers of upcoming test, after being persuaded by a group of thugs to do it for them. However she is being caught in the act, but her friend (a hot white blonde) gives her support and throws inchilladas at this gang's leader, a jerk who only smiles at her misfortune. Then there's another subplot with the same (or another?) girl who is in loved with the best-looking guy there, but he dates the school's most popular girl, a spoiled Negro who eventually dumps him (as I recall).
Plenty of derivative, million times seen stuff, even the soundtrack is corny (Michael Sembello - Maniac). The actors are all amateurs, and such is the acting.

Mario Gaborović on Aug 16 2014, 03:09:30 PM wrote:Back in the 1980s, we had chance to see plenty of children films (mostly 30min shorts) from all around the world. I believe some aren't even listen on IMDb, but out of curiosity I was persistent to discover their titles many years later. These were shown within a so-called "EBU drama" film cycle, albeit I don't know if they were put together under that blanket term abroad, or do they have any inter-connection whatsoever. Luckily I have a good memory, and we were even told beforehand in the newspapers what is going to be shown next. I even remember some years of production. However I don't have high hopes that some of you have seen these:

1) Netherlands, 1984/85 - A blonde-haired boy with glasses named Joost, aged about 12, comes to something called "Zonnekamp" (the backroad sign) to spend a scouting weekend there with his peers. He's being constantly ignored and ridiculed by kids there, only to get up on his bicycle and leave the place. All the time it was a misty rain there, no sun at all. No dialogue, only some mumbling and a few laughs.

2) Netherlands again, 1988 - A kid has a crush on his new, black-skinned teacher. One day while on hi way to school, he finds out that there was a road accident with a car same like hers involved (a Peugeot 205 cabrio I think). He follows the ambulance van on his bike, but loses them. He comes back to school and sees the teacher there, which makes him happy 'cause she didn't die.

3) Germany, 1980s - Two girls ramble across forest and one of them suddenly drops into a big hole in the ground. People come from elsewhere to get her out with a crane. A drama which borders with horror.

4) Norway, 1983 - A deaf kid who often rambles across the hills suddenly stumbles upon an escaped delinquent named Bjorn, aged about 18. They befriend, set up a fire and have a nice time together, but the police finds him and put him handcuffs. The boy sadly looks at his new friend being taken away.

5) Australia, around 1975 - A kid wants to keep iguana's egg in his backyard, but his mom doesn't let him. I think he hid it somewhere only to find out that a dingo or fox ate it.

6) England, 1985 - A kid takes care of his retarded brother whose idol is Stephen Cram. They pretend being at athletic meeting while running across sand beach together.

7) England, early 1980s - Some kids make pranks on an excursion boat trip by the river canal.

8) Ireland, early 1980s - A drama about some kid named Liam and his brass band. Certainly the weakest of them all.
I've found a page that describes the "Children's Drama" program and it looks like the EBU is also known internationally as EUROVISION. It also gives the name of someone to contact for further information so that may be worth a shot:

Yeah, sorry for not being precise enough. The film ends with those two songs while credits roll.

Very strange 'cause that film doesn't look like it was made on a miniscule budget not to be listed on IMDb. But it's not good either.
I know all these years of release 'cause back in the day where I had no internet these films were announced in the newspapers along with country of production and year of release. Today it would be much easier to track them down by a single cast member. Each time has its own advantages.

It looks very similar but I believe not. This was a feature-length movie, and that sole available episode on YouTube (Macedonians) doesn't look as it was made in the same fashion as this film.
However, very strange considering the same period (1986-87) and subject (immigrants). I'll know it for sure when other episodes emerge.

Thanks a lot! Yes, it looks like they went on all the way until the 2010s to finance this stuff.

I actually managed to find out the title of a single film in this EBU drama series. It is Finnish and it's called "Raamit ranniin", made in 1985. Some kid who trains ski jumping is going bad in school because of his hobby, so his parents torment him for this. He only thinks about his idol Jari Puykkonen and wants to become like him. One day he sees a woman who forgot to park her car properly, leaving her baby inside. As she went to the supermarket, the car started going downhill, but this kid, who was passing by, sees that and blocks the car by putting his skis below the front wheels. The woman returns and it turns out that it was Puykkonen's wife and their baby. As a sign of gratitude, the famous ski jumper buys this kid the most expensive skis.
The film ends with the kid's jump on K90.

Is anyone able to help with this? It's really bugging me.

So I remember watching a film and I can't remember too much. I'm sure it's Asian (can't remember the country so apologies for lumping a whole continent together) and I can definitely remember subtitles. Anyway, it pretty much starts with a what appears to be a prostitution type situation, but then it gets a bit incestuous as there's a few bits about 'don't tell your mum' and the dad is giving the daughter money to sleep with him I think. There's a huge possibility that it's a horror/thriller as I was watching a lot from those genres at the time.

For some reason Dumplings from Three...Extremes is connecting with it in my mind but I'm not sure why. Maybe I watched them around the same time. But anyway, any help would be hugely appreciated!

Yeah, why not. Just did it. Waiting for the obvious "saw it at a festival" answer, but at least I could give it a try. -_-

Apparently, her films ran as shorts before films back in the day. Many people saw them and now they're barely available. Hm. I guess if they're not Looney Tunes or Disney shorts, they don't get re-released.

Too bad. But there's some hope, if I understand the Center for Visual Music website correctly:
2014 update - Bute program and selected individual films may be booked through CVM. Abstronic is available digitally; others are 16mm. We are working to make others available on digital formats soon, pending funding.

A friend saw this black-and-white film as a kid, but can't remember its name or locate it. It had some kids who venture into an "abandoned" manor, where they encounter a man. This man captures one of the kids and forces him to eat invisible (that is, non-existent) chicken (or some other meat dish) with him in a dinner table. The manor has many secret passages which the man uses to scare the other kids. The captured kid might have or might not have been black.

France, 1961, color (99% sure).

A film that reminds of Repulsion, but it is not. This is what I remember: a blonde girl who I though was Brigitte Bardot - until I checked all of her films made around that period - moves to a flat at the highest floor of an ordinary building, I think older lady was the owner. Generally the film deals with her decaying romance with a guy I can't remember for life.
The films begins with somebody driving her from the airport in a white Citroen DS, and ends in a very unforgettable way: after a quarrel with her boyfriend, she (wearing a pink nightie) slips from the floor and falls into the pit between the stairs (no elevator there). This scene, the final one, is made like a dreamy sequence where she's falling for 10 seconds in a slo-mo, turning upside-down. Just when she's about to hit the floor and die, the film ends.
There's also a scene near the end in which she's playing a guitar in the bed, turning her back to boyfriend who came to talk with her.
I checked Deneuve's filmography as well, but it doesn't fit either. :(

The unknown movie:

Color, but a but not vivid colors. Probably from the 50s or early 60s

Court drama after a ship wreck. And if I remember correctly they have to go down to the wreck to find a scarf )or similar) which is evidence in the case.

Does this ring a bell for anyone?

I don't think so. My ship actually sunk.

I think it might be Reap the Wild Wind (1942) actually, but all the plot summaries I've found don't spoil the ending so I can't really be sure.

I saw a vampire film, I'm pretty sure it was a Vampire film. But the main plot was that they owned a disco.

It's not Blacula, it's clearly made on a lower budget than that. In one scene the female lead is walking through the city, and it's obvious that they didn't close off the street as everyone she passes keep looking at her.

A friend recommended me this movie but she didn't remembered the title. I don't particularly value her movie opinion, but it really bugs me not finding which movie it is.

She says its the story of a female runner, possibly a olympic runner. She has this big race coming up, but she doesn't seem to be able to improve her time. The film opens with a TV interview, where she states that she could only run faster if she was running for her life. Somehow, someone kidnaps one of his children, and calls her saying that in order to save her kid's life, she must runs to x place in x time. Obviously, she does, thus breaking her record time. The kidnapper ends up being her trainer/father/husband. The film is probably previous to the 2000's, but possibly already in color.

okay, I have one - from the 70s and most likely made-for-TV (US) and shown on one of the big three networks. I was probably in the 10-12 range and it really, really creeped me out

all I remember is this family had a house (newly bought?) and there was a sealed door under the stairs (maybe in their basement? maybe just under the stairs to the second floor?)

anyway, they opened the sealed doorway and let out these nasty goblin/troll-like creatures that were well beyond mischievous - they wanted to hurt (kill?)

that's all I remember

any takers? anyone old enough?

@xianjiro: Why do you want to revisit the prune heads? It's not a particularly good film, you know.

mostly to excise those childhood demons but also to know what bugged a lot as a kid. can't imagine I won't laugh my ass off at it now (like I do with most 'horror.')

but thanks! :) I'll track it down and see if it's what I remember. I'll also say, after so many years, things are too often nothing like the memory of them. ^_^

Thanks again, Monty - that has to be it. It's interesting how different my memory of the movie is from what I saw. Other than the bolted metal portal and the stairs down to it (and the climactic scene), I think my 10 year old imagination really went to work. I would have sworn dozens of people were attacked! :rolleyes:

Well, that's another unofficial check I've been able to reclaim from my past.
