Kyosuke Kasuga, fifteen, moves to a new city and falls for Madoka Ayukawa. She's friendly when they're alone, but acts like a delinquent when in front of others. Kyosuke meanwhile struggles not to break the heart of Hikaru Hiyama, who fell in love after seeing him make an impossible basketball shot.

3,1/5 (bei 88 Stimmen)

In einer verregneten Nacht steht ein rotes Einrad, genannt Red, in der Sonderangebotsecke von Eben's Bikes, einem Fahrradgeschäft. Während die Kamera auf Red heranfährt, scheint sich der Regen in einen Trommelwirbel zu verwandeln und die Szene wechselt zu dem Clown Lumpy, der auf Red unter mäßigem Applaus in eine Zirkusarena fährt. Lumpy beginnt mit drei Bällen zu jonglieren, lässt aber ab und zu einen Ball fallen, der dann unerklärlicherweise zu ihm zurück gespielt wird. Bei einem besonders weit fehlgeworfenen Ball wird klar, dass das Einrad die Jonglage gerettet hat. Der Clown stürzt zu Boden, als er bemerkt dass er praktisch in der Luft reitet, aber Red fängt die übrigen fallengelassenen Bälle auf und bringt die Nummer unter tosendem Applaus zu Ende. Doch dann verwandelt sich das Klatschen wieder in das Geräusch des Regens und Red wacht aus seinem Traum auf. Deprimiert kehrt er in die Ecke mit den Sonderangeboten zurück.

3,6/5 (bei 18 Stimmen)

The final 17 years of American singer and musician Karen Carpenter, performed almost entirely by modified Barbie dolls.

The Garden of Earthly Delights(1981)

3 Min.
3,1/5 (bei 9 Stimmen)

A collage of two-dimensional images of vegetation, each appearing only for a moment, sometimes as a single image, more often with other bits of stem, leaf, bud, or petal. Often we see only the outline of objects against a black background. Black and green are occasionally joined by fragments of orange or of white and blue. The objects in the frame don't move but they are quickly replaced by another collage, giving the feel of rapid motion. Each collage is crisp, its lines etched against the background of black and later of white. Whitman anyone, or Hieronymus Bosch? Although there is no soundtrack, the rapidity of changing images and colors suggests a riot.

The Strike(1988)

The Strike is a film from The Comic Strip Presents that received a limited theatrical release, and won the Golden Rose of Montreux for the same year. The film concerns Paul (Alexei Sayle), a Welsh former miner and aspiring screenwriter, who writes a hard-hitting filmscript about his own experiences of the 1984 Miners' Strike. However, the Hollywood production company that gets hold of his script turns it into a ludicrously sensationalist and anachronistic action film, starring Al Pacino (played by Richardson) as Arthur Scargill, and Meryl Streep (Jennifer Saunders) as his wife.
