Movie about a girl growing up, a grasshopper and music stars

Hi everyone!

So, I didn’t watch that movie myself. I only heard my aunt telling my mother about it long ago, in the year between 2002 and 2008. Now auntie doesn’t remember it 🙂 . So, the movie’s about a girl growing up, she lost her parents or maybe one of them, afterwards she sat and caught a grasshopper, then let it go, then caught it again, several times, symbolizing her confusion and lostness. Time passes, and as a teenager or a young woman, she goes to a rock concert, gets noticed by a rockstar and spends a night with him. Later, perhaps, she becomes a singer herself, but I’m not sure I remember that right. Appreciate if anyone tells me the title!

 

Chinese Sci-Fi/Period Piece

This was a movie I watched on Hulu around 2016 that I believe was part of the Criterion Collection, but searching through their database yields nothing. To the best of my memory, it was a period piece about a little girl with mysterious origins and some kind of special powers that made her not fit in, being raised in a rural Chinese village. I believe she had loving parents who may or may not have believed she was their real daughter. Other kids saw her as some kind of freak. One of the images from the film I remember most strongly was her showing up bullies by staring at them with piercing blue eyes and intimidating them with her vibes or something. At the end, a flying saucer with lots of glowing lights shows up at night. I remember the movie being very slow and unrewarding. I wanna say it was from the early 80’s, but for all I know it could be earlier.

Cybersex, trying again

I tried this over a year ago. Let’s see if anyone can remember this.
ChatGPT just keeps giving me episodes of Outer Limits that don’t exist.

I’m looking for a movie (possibly TV show) that came out in the late 80’s or early 90’s. I saw it on late night TV.
There was this guy in a cyberpunk world. He went into a secret club to rent a cybersex booth. The receptionist asked him for the size of the hardware he needed and he said “large”. She laughed and said “OK that means medium.”
He went into the booth and the VR program kept glitching and going wrong.
At the end he walked out and said something like “She treated me no worse than real women I’ve met.”

Help remember thriller movie please!

I THINK it was on hulu within the last yr, it’s in English  and I’m pretty sure the twist about the author was he was writing about the husband family secret or something.. it’s driving me insane

Short film I saw on Netflix circa 2010

Please help – I saw a film circa 2010 on Netflix and cannot for the life of me remember the name.

It was a short horror (or horror adjacent) film (~25-40 min) and centered on a woman who was staying alone in a house (I think after her husband had gone on a trip). She would have a rendezvous with a subservient man in the woods behind a tree and I can’t remember any details beyond that except that I think she died in the end. Anyone have any thoughts – many thanks!

Early 90s indie film

I’m looking for the title of a film I would have seen in the first half of the 90s, or possibly as late as 1996, that was a kind of comedy where the male protagonist was trying to sleep with one of three sisters but is thrown off his game by the behaviour of the sisters and their relationship with their grandmother.  There is a trip to a country house and at one point a shot of a mural of “The Three Graces” although that is not the name of the film. It’s also not “Three Sisters” or “Hannah and her Sisters”.

Film out in last few years, horror

Hi there!

I recently planned to watch a film (I believe it was available on Prime Video), out in the last few years about a woman whose soldier husband was killed in action, however she wants him back – I may have dreamt this next bit but she may have moved to a new home? Either way she uses some type of spell or even black magic etc to get him back to life. Colour, pretty sure it’s in English language as well and most definitely in the horror genre. Sorry of that isn’t a lot to go on but I’d be eternally grateful if it rings a bell 🙂

Movie about a single mom and her troubled son

I recall a movie I saw on TV around 1970’s. It was about a single mom who lived with her son and he was very jealous when his mother dated. He was about 13 and got into trouble with older teenagers. He tried to kiss an older guys girlfriend and the boyfriend chases him. A biker saved him from the guy and they became friends. He put together a plot with his biker friend to get his mom’s boyfriend in the apartment but to kill him by starting a fire.  I think when the biker found out what this kid was planning, he called the police because he didn’t wanna be part of a murder or he wanted to prevent it.  The movie ended where unfortunately it was his mother that was stuck in the apartment and she ended up getting killed by the fire. The boy was put into some sort of rehabilitation place and the mother’s boyfriend went to go visit him. Does anybody remember the movie?

Commercial

Hi, I know this is solely for movies. I vividly remember a commercial from either the 1960’s or 1970’s, a man was med by prison guards to a door. One guard opened the door but there were no steps or a staircase. They threw the prisoner out and closed the door as he stood on the ledge. The prisoner put his hands up to his nose so as not to smell the pollution. I can’t find this on any Google search. Thanks!

Contemporary film with a plot similar to Jane Eyre

A friend of mine is trying to find a movie they saw approximately 10 years ago.

The following is all the information they remember:

Film is in English, color, thriller, likely from the late 90s/early 2000’s

She watched it on TV, not in the theater, but isn’t sure if it was made for TV.

The film is about a nanny who takes on the child of a widower.

Throughout the film, the nanny sees a ghost woman (or what she thinks is a ghost woman) in the house, but in the end it’s revealed that the wife/mother is still alive and the husband has been keeping her trapped.

I told her it sounds like Jane Eyre, but she said it’s definitely not a period piece. I did some googling to try to find modern adaptations of Jane Eyre, and have come up empty handed. Hopefully someone here will be able to help. I think I might be more curious than she is at this point, lol

1940s WWII Movie About a French Soldier During the Fall of France

This is a Hollywood (English language) movie from the 1940s, but it may have a French director and partially French cast in America for the war. It is about a French soldier during and immediately after the Fall of France (1941); he may have been a tank driver. At the start of the movie all he can think about is deserting the cause of France but the patriotism and death of those around him eventually changes his mind.

Near the start he is picked up by a truck carrying French soldiers from all over the front, but after being strafed the majority are killed.

He successfully winds up in a ship and I believe the end of the movie sees him joining the Free French.

80s or 90s European film: a woman chef makes amazing multi-course dinner for humble neighbors?

I think it’s a European film, not in English.  Color, some time around 80s or early 90s.  The scene I remember:  dark interior shots of maybe a country cottage; she’s back and forth between cooking in the old kitchen and serving in the dining room.  The people at the table are older, and they’re humble people totally unaccustomed to great food/fine dining.  Every course is blowing them away, but they’re reserved people, so they’re not showing it much except in these cute glances they share among each other.  Any ideas?  Thanks!

70s or 80s, mirror starts bending, then shatters, killing someone

Hi, I saw this on TV in the 70s (or maybe 1980-81).  I think it was a TV show, not a movie on TV, but I’m not sure.  Horror genre, I suppose, since I think something supernatural was at work in the scene I remember:  someone’s looking in a tall mirror on the wall.  The mirror starts warping / bending / buckling, and then suddenly shatters, sending a shard into the chest of the person.  Anyone remember?  This site is amazing, btw!

Identify this soft-core porn movie featuring mother trying to get impregnated by her son

This movie would have been made in the 90’s or 00’s. It featured a mother trying to get impregnated by her son.   At one point, the mother is screwing the son, I believe against his will, and the son is pleading with her to stop, saying something to the effect of, while trying not to splooge “Stop, I can’t hold it back any longer.”

Sci-fi/action/horror movie about anti-aging serum and a Nazi submersible research vessel in the Arctic

Hello! Trying to find an odd movie I watched quite a while ago, most likely released from late-90s to mid 2000s. The cinematography, stunts, and effects were pretty good. Acting was passable for this type of feature.

The story was about a man who had developed a serum to quickly make his body 20+ years younger, and had three combat-skilled daughters (?) working with him to search for ways to make the serum permanent. A submersible (?) ship appeared in the Arctic rising out of the ice, which turned out to be some kind of weird Nazi (?) research facility. The man sends one of his daughters to check out the vessel, and she disappears. The remaining two daughters take it upon themselves to follow up where the first daughter failed. In the end, the vessel’s origin or whereabouts remained unknown.

Sorry for the sketchy details. I do not recall any of the actors being notable stars. I searched through several AI-based movie search websites and dozens of story/character-related movies but could not re-discover this particular one. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you!

Horror, mystery, “theatrical” movie where a young women is kidnapped and locked in a dark bedroom

Horror, mystery, “theatrical” movie where a young women is kidnapped after being at a bar/club and she wakes up in (tied to?) a bed, locked in a dark bedroom. All the scenes of the movie take place in this bedroom from that event. She sees other people there, after a while, but I don’t think they are real… No gore, very symbolic. The year: between 2005 and 2019? Indie movie perhaps. Not well known.

Some obscure thriller from presumably the 90s

Hello, I have not seen this supposedly American film myself. I just want to help one girl who complains that she has been looking for it for ten years without success.
According to the plot, a young single mother gets married. Her husband takes her to his house, located in the middle of nowhere. Some strange things begin to happen. She constantly has nightmares. In them some shaggy one wanders around, and someone’s ominous whisper is heard. In the whisper you can make out the name Caroline (but this is not certain). Perhaps this is her name.
In addition, the heroine found some kind of workshop in the forest. And there were strange, creepy pictures in it, perhaps drawn by this husband of hers.

There was also an episode with a death in the stable. Some woman, either his mother or his nanny, fell into a trough and was electrocuted

In addition, they had a child together. He died. Then (as far as this girl who is looking for the film remembers) it turns out that this psychotic husband killed this common child of theirs.

No matter how much I Googled, the result was zero. I think either the film is very little known, or maybe this girl has some faulty memories. But nevertheless, hope dies last. Thanks in advance for any hints.
