Looking for a movie (mid 80s) about two rich families involved in a feud that has something to do with industrial problems, maybe factories, and possibly mafia problems. There is another story line about father-daughter relationship. I remember the father had meetings with mafia (?) people at the house on the lake. At the end of the film there’s a shot of a big boat on the lake, and a huge explosion, in which everyone gets killed, and this is the ending (the final shot is that big explosion).
Looking for a French movie from the early 2000s about a young man, his name is Anri or Louis. He tries to become an actor, goes to the university, but doesn’t find work. Then he falls in love with an older woman, moves in with her. His parents try to convince him to choose a different life, but he doesn’t want to. At some point he becomes homeless, then eventually finds a job.
Looking for a movie (made possibly in the 60s or 70s) about three boys who build a spaceship in a garage of one of them. I think that either an alien meets them in the end or they actually fly to space. One of them wore glasses. The setting was very minimalist, looked like a 60s movie. (NOT Explorers/My Science Project)
Looking for a short movie from the 90s, probably British, about a girl who lived on a farm and was molested by a neighbor. He had a rabbit, and the girl wanted to take that rabbit, he agreed to do that in exchange for a kiss, and kisses her, then raped her. Later the parents discovered everything.The title was something like “Terrible Secret” or something that had to do with secret. Based on real events.
Looking for an American or British film made in the last 10 years. At the beginning of the film, the journalist is trying to join an undercover group going out to a dangerous mission. At first she speaks with some old man who refuses her, then with a young man who allows her to go with them. At the beginning someone gives her a task, and she refuses, but then agrees to do it.
Looking for an American film made in the last 5-10 years with very famous actors. I remember only one scene – a conversation between two people on a farm. One of them sits on a hill near the grave and says that he buried his wife here, because she liked it there, and they often went out for a walk together. (Not Forrest Gump)
Looking for an 80s-90s American TV-movie about an 8 year old girl who was molested by her father. Her mother discovers it, when she tries to give her a bath, and the girl starts crying and becomes hysterical. The girl’s name is Sally or Molly, her mother calls her “pumpkin” (or “peanut”). The mother goes into hiding with her, changes her hair to hide from her father, who demands to see her. They both hide from the police, at one time have a dinner at a priest’s house. (Not “In the Best Interest of the Child” or “Her Desperate Choice” )
Trying to remember the name of an American movie probably from the 90s. A woman calls her sister from her office, then suddenly she sees something that looks like a criminal activity. Then she is murdered, and her sister hears it all on the phone. The investigation that follows leads nowhere, and the sister decides to take the matter into her own hands.
Looking for an unknown horror movie, probably from late 70s. I only remember the trailer: a woman is walking on the street, sees a young girl in a white dress. The girl’s eyes roll inside her head, fill with blue liquid, and then we see some strange visions that she creates. Then the camera shifts to the street again and the girl is not there.
Looking for a kid adventure/fantasy movie, probably European, from the 80s-90s (not later). There was a red-haired boy called Peter, who discovers a magic tree, goes through it to some magic world and meets the vikings (or fighters of some sort). He keeps coming there, and these journeys are kept in secret from his parents. I think only his girlfriend knew about it. Later in the movie a mayor wants to cut the tree, and Peter convinces the vikings to appear in the city so that everyone would know that the tree has magic powers. The vikings come out of the tree in the middle of a city parade or some festivity.
Can someone please identify a children’s mini-series from 70s or 80s. I think it was in 6 parts. It was about a girl named Cassie, who befriended a grumpy old man and started taking care of his horse. When the man died, he gave the horse to her. Her parents were surprised and at first didn’t want her to keep the horse, but eventually agreed.
What is the title of a movie (mid 80s) about two rich families involved in a feud that has something to do with industrial problems, maybe factories, and possibly mafia problems. There is another story line about father-daughter relationship. I remember the father had meetings with mafia (?) people at the house on the lake.

Looking for a BBC documentary (maybe 10-15 years old) about women in their 20s, who date older men. There is one scene when they talk and the woman says “You are not going to die, right?”, and the man says “No angel, I’m not ready to die yet”.
Trying to find a movie or a mini-series about a construction worker in Chicago or Detroit. He remembers his life back in the 40s or 50s when he had a hard time getting by. He is Afro-American, had trouble reading and his boss or someone else was bothering him. I thing there was a problem with his house, because he couldn’t pay for it and had to sell it. There is also another story line – the relationship with his son.
I’m looking for a documentary made in the last 10 years about the process of shoe-making in India, which shows an environmental hazard. The leather for the shoes proves to be touched with radioactive material from a contaminated river. There is an interview with someone who works there for a dollar a day, and she describes the whole process of shoe-making. Then the shoes are shipped to Netherlands and France, and distributed all over the world.
Trying to remember an American documentary (probably mid 90s- early 2000s) about spanking. There are three families who advocate the use of corporal punishment, they are very strict and religious. The mothers teach their children at home and punish them if they don’t behave. In one scene a mother asks the son if he finished his homework, he says yes, but she finds out he is not telling the truth and decides to punish him, goes to his room with a switch and we hear him scream.
What movie is this from? (probably American, mid 90s)
Looking for a movie (probably mid 90s’) about a girl who was found in an old house when she was 14-16 years old, living in isolation (in a cage perhaps)? She was hid by her abusive father and couldn’t talk, because when she was little no one ever spoke to her and she didn’t develop language skills. The girl had big blue eyes and was very quiet. Her doctor discovers that her mother did talk to her sometimes, and therefore she is able to learn new words. At the end of the film she learns to speak and testifies against her father in court. (NOT “Nell”. NOT “Mockingbirds don’t sing”)
I’m trying to remember a TV-movie from late 90s- early 2000s about a teacher in the South, who told his students something he shouldn’t have told them (maybe about his political views, Holocaust, or maybe about Darwin and the the theory of evolution, etc), and the parents start a boycott against him. At one point there is a school meeting and some of the parents start shouting they don’t want him in the school, trying to fight him, rip his shirt off. There are several students and teachers who support him, and it becomes a subject of national debate. The teacher has blue eyes, and he is new in town. (NOT “Inherit the wind” 1999)
I am looking for a 90s-2000s documentary about teenagers who murdered their parents or relatives. One of the murderers is a teenager with schizophrenia, who murdered his grandparents. He heard voices in his head saying that he should kill his grandfather and grandmother. First he wanted to commit a suicide and drove around the neighborhood, where he was arrested for speeding, but the police let him go. Then he came to his home and murdered his grandparents with a knife or with an ax. The documentary also shows his portrait, a fat boy wearing eyeglasses.
(Not “Teen Killers: a Second Chance?” (1998), “Why did Johnny Kill?” (1988))
