52 Films By Women – December 2016


Twelve crazy months after peeking my nose around the corner of films directed by women I find myself having seen more films that almost everyone else I know. I guess that says most about the state of film and the roles of men and women and other groups of people. I mean I haven’t even seen a hundred films and you go from (almost) nothing to knowing your stuff, at least to most people. But putting all of that aside I can see some good things coming from this challenge. I wasn’t the only one doing it and it has given me loads of new films, new directors I now like and it has made me watch films I would otherwise never have dreamed of watching or even heard of.

I mean I’ve seen a documentary about life on Cyprus, I’ve seen Christian Bale listen to Huey Lewis and the News, watched a Panda kick serious ass – twice, saw how poor little Ping Pong got killed and un-killed, watched Nazi propaganda, the life of Serbs in Mexico.. I’ve even seen a Polish children’s adventure and the most hilarious team building event in recorded history. Needless to say, this whole challenge thing was a huge success. Back in January 52 films seemed like an impossible task, but I ended up watching 89, 99 even if you count every individual thing. I’ve watched 20 shorts, 7 feature length documentaries and 72 feature films. I’ve watched films from 29 countries, 45 years and by 80 different directors.

So that’s it. If you have been, thanks for reading. I hope this made at least one person watch one film they would otherwise never have watched. Just this month’s films to go. Thought October was crazy with 13 films? Yeah me too, but then came December. Go out with a bang, I guess. Enjoy!

Whale Rider CoverOriginal title: Whale Rider
Year: 2002
Director: Niki Caro
Duration: 101 min.
Genres: Drama, Family

The beginning of Whale Rider reminded me of a little known 2013 film called The Rocket. A child is born, leaving behind a dead twin brother and mother. She is blamed for all bad things that happen from then on. A boy was supposed to have been born to become the next chief of a Maori tribe, but now the child’s grandfather is stuck with a girl. Whale Rider touches a lot of different topics along the way. Tradition, freedom, grief and more. This is a beautifully crafted coming of age tale of a strong woman struggling to be accepted for who she is in a society dominated by men. I also loved the occasional cut to just footage of swimming whales. Pretty much every scene involving whales was really well done. A very solid film across the board.

Travolti da un insolito destino nell'azzurro mare d'agosto CoverOriginal title: Travolti da un insolito destino nell'azzurro mare d'agosto
Year: 1974
Director: Lina Wertmüller
Duration: 116 min.
Genres: Adventure, Comedy, Drama

I always say I do not like Italian films. I really dislike the acting and weird dubbing they do, and until about 15 minutes in I was ready to toss my TV out the window. Words that come to mind are: loud, obnoxious, vulgar. But it is needed to set up the rest of the story. In it extreme versions of an upper class woman and a lower class man are tossed together in an unreal situation while the former is on a cruise though the Mediterranean. Its conclusion seemed a little cynical, although perhaps it’s also realistic.

The Love Light CoverOriginal title: The Love Light
Year: 1921
Director: Frances Marion
Duration: 89 min.
Genres: Drama, Romance

This is going to be the oldest (feature) film I’ve seen for this challenge. I’ve seen a few Alice Guy shorts, but they are no longer than a minute so I’m not counting them. I found this on YT without any music, so what I did was to find a nice playlist of classical music and jazz and played that in the background. It wasn’t perfect, but enjoyable nonetheless and to be honest after a while you hardly notice it at all. The Love Light is a melodrama that starts off strong enough, but it kind of loses itself in the last half hour plot wise. Still who can complain about watching Mary Pickford innocently blinking into the camera. There were some nice shots of some cliffs by the sea and a lighthouse. Overall it was not the best film I’ve seen, but it was worth the time.

Respire CoverOriginal title: Respire
Year: 2014
Director: Mélanie Laurent
Duration: 91 min.
Genre: Drama

Whew.. I think this French teenage drama might have been one of the most difficult to digest films I’ve seen all year. Afterwards I was a proper mess. Respire (Breathe) felt extremely real and some of the scenes really gave me a hard time to watch. Unless you’ve had a wonderful carefree time going through college I think this film will get very close at times – too close for comfort. It’s raw, it has some amazing shots, great acting, beautiful scenes and haunting music. I have no idea why this only gets a 7.1 on IMDb because to me it seems like it deserves much more. If you like raw and real and are not afraid to end up feeling like crap afterwards I suggest giving this a go. Go in blind though, avoid watching the trailer. Whoever came up with that spoilery piece of.. anyway, great film, go watch it!

The Kids Are All Right CoverOriginal title: The Kids Are All Right
Year: 2010
Director: Lisa Cholodenko
Duration: 106 min.
Genres: Comedy, Drama, Romance

When Joni turns 18, she attempts to contact her father who was a sperm donor to her and her brother Laser. They secretly meet him and very much like in Respire they are taken in by his charming personality. After the only scene in this film that made me laugh Laser spills the beans to his mothers and after the whole crazy family meets things get a little out of hand. The film had some good moments, but failed to engage me especially in the first half. I do not react well to certain things that happen in this film, but once that was sorted out the comedy made place for drama and I ended up liking it until the end. The main cast of five, Julianne Moore, Annette Bening, Mark Ruffalo and Mia Wasikowska were great and two of them ended up being nominated for an oscar for their performance in this film. Josh Hutcherson kind of just tagged along for the ride and didn’t really have much to do. This is a good film, but it didn’t really work for me.

Sedmikrásky CoverOriginal title: Sedmikrásky
Year: 1966
Director: Věra Chytilová
Duration: 74 min.
Genres: Comedy, Drama

Well okay. Daisies takes a while to get into, but once it does it’s just so much fun. It looks like the two lead actresses had loads of fun too while making the film. Daisies is about nothing really. No coherent narrative, no progression or character development. It’s kind of like a lighthearted Luis Buñuel film. Absurd and comical, nihilistic too. And with some amazing camera shots and post processing. I loved the scene right after the scissor thing where everything is being cut up. Nowadays that would be an instagram filter but back in 1966 I imagine that wouldn’t have been so easy to do.

Sib CoverOriginal title: Sib
Year: 1998
Director: Samira Makhmalbaf
Duration: 86 min.
Genre: Drama

Sib (The Apple) is the debut film of Iranian director Samira Makhmalbaf. She directed this film when she was only 17 years old, which seems pretty impressive. From the credits I guess it was also a bit of a family effort. Her father Mohsen and mother Marzieh are credited for screenplay+editing and co-directing respectively. The story is about a family of four. Father is pretty much a beggar from what I could gather – he has no job. Mother is blind, and their two twelve year old twin daughters have been locked inside all their lives. The film opens with a letter being written by concerned neighbours who ask the authorities to intervene. The Apple feels extremely low budget but acting is surprisingly natural. It didn’t end up being a film I particularly enjoyed, but it’s certainly worth checking out. Samira’s father, mother and sister Hana are also film directors. All I’ve seen from any of them is The Day I Became a Woman, which I really liked a lot but watched last year so it didn’t make any of my posts for the challenge.

Salut les Cubains CoverOriginal title: Salut les Cubains
Year: 1963 or 1971
Director: Agnès Varda
Duration: 30 min.
Genre: Documentary

Agnès Varda is going to win the non-existent prize for most featured director in this blog series. This time she went on a trip to Cuba in 1963 and she made a couple thousand photo’s. A lot of them are shown to us while two narrators, Varda being one of them, tell stories about all things Cuban. They speak about the political climate close after Fidel and Raul Castro and Che Guevara and others had their revolution. They talk about the men and the women and the day to day life and they talk about the booming artistic climate in the country at the time and they are very positive about it all. The journey clearly made an impact on Varda, but knowing what we know now some of it does sounds a little naive. Twice have they added a song into this documentary and twice have they used photo’s to make it seem like the performers are moving and dancing to that music. It was very clever and fun to watch. Salut les Cubains is not Varda’s best work, but it’s worth a watch because of its short runtime.

Pour toi je ferai bataille CoverOriginal title: Pour toi je ferai bataille
Year: 2010
Director: Rachel Lang
Duration: 21 min.
Genre: Drama

Or: For You I Will Fight. MUBI was showing this short and the next one this month so I decided to give them a try. I’ll keep it short and say I could not connect to anything in either short. Both seem like slices of life with no real narrative or point to it. In this one a girl (Ana) joins the military. The end. I’m not sure what else to say. I guess I missed the point.

Les navets blancs empêchent de dormir CoverOriginal title: Les navets blancs empêchent de dormir
Year: 2011
Director: Rachel Lang
Duration: 28 min.
Genre: Drama

Or: White Turnips Make It Hard to Sleep. The same actress plays a girl named Ana. She does this again in a third short that wasn’t on MUBI so I didn’t watch that. I guess that means that she is meant to be the same person. But no military this time, although she does know her way around a uniform. This time she’s visiting her long distance boyfriend to break up with him and to come up with useless bits of trivia to place on a board. The end.

We Need to Talk About Kevin CoverOriginal title: We Need to Talk About Kevin
Year: 2011
Director: Lynne Ramsay
Duration: 112 min.
Genres: Drama, Thriller

Every so often you see a film and you know it’s good, but it just doesn’t seem to work for you. For me that’s We Need to Talk About Kevin. In the first 15-30 minutes it gave me no way in, to get into the film watching zone so to speak. I was looking at flashbacks, weird ethereal scenes and had no idea why I was watching them other than they looked pretty. As the story became clear in the next 15 minutes things picked up, but then it was pretty clear what had happened and the rest of the film was just watching the thing you knew had happened happen. I mean not exactly, but in a generic sense. The best thing for me was Tilda Swinton who was just fantastic as Kevin’s mother. I think this film should have been called We Need to Talk About Kevin’s Dad, because to me he was the real problem. Anyway, great film, sadly it didn’t really work for me. I wish it did.

De røde enge CoverOriginal title: De røde enge
Year: 1945
Director: Bodil Ipsen
Duration: 85 min.
Genres: Drama, War

I watched a gorgeous copy of this film. Subtitles were great although a little fast at times. Since I do not speak any Danish I do not know if the subs, the dialog or both were amazing, but either way the result was me being impressed. The film is very low key, but it felt almost like how I’d imagine a war drama or film noir if it had been directed by Ingmar Bergman. Everything in this little gem worked for me. There was plenty of drama, some neat action scenes and a good amount of thriller. Red Meadows was released just half a year after the liberation of Denmark, and everything felt very real – of course within the confines of how they made movies around that time. Reflections on war and its heroes felt very sincere and mature, so close after the war. More people should see this!

Antonia CoverOriginal title: Antonia
Year: 1995
Director: Marleen Gorris
Duration: 102 min.
Genres: Comedy, Drama

The first 15 minutes I did not like this film. It felt Dutch – which is a way of saying ‘not for me’ – and acting was hammy, also a very Dutch thing. I so did not expect to be almost tearing up when the credits rolled. This film grew on me unlike any other. The strange villagers grew on me and I started to care about them and their affairs. The first 15 minutes aside it all felt very magical and fairytale-like, but real enough to be believable. The film is filled with strong women and weak men, which I usually find refreshing to see. It also gives a lot of social commentary about life in a small village and about life in general. That’s the kind of thing that usually wins me over and so it did. Antonia’s Line won an Oscar for best foreign language film in a year in which I have not heard of any of the other nominees. I’m not sure what that means – the other films might be great too – but this is certainly worth checking out.

Nareul Itjimarayo CoverOriginal title: Nareul Itjimarayo
Year: 2016
Director: Yoon-Jung Lee
Duration: 106 min.
Genres: Drama, Mystery, Romance

Remember You opens with a man walking into a police station to report a missing person. Himself! How very D.O.A. But then we get a flashback to find out what drove the guy to report himself missing. What followed was actually a pretty good romantic drama about love and loss. The film looked nice and the acting was good. A lot of the scenes early on had a way of returning later when a bit more of the mystery was unraveled and things got some context. I say really well done for a debut film that was also written by its director. One to keep an eye out for.

The Kid from the Big Apple CoverOriginal title: The Kid from the Big Apple
Year: 2016
Director: Jess Teong
Duration: 119 min.
Genres: Family, Drama

For the second time this challenge I felt like I was the wrong audience for a film I watched. It happened earlier with a Polish children’s film and now with a Malaysian one. Well at least I got to see some crazy stuff, but I have to admit that this one wasn’t a very good film. It had heart I’ll give it that, but it scores negative points for pacing, cheesiness, no sense of subtlety and just being really strange at times. The story is simple. A single mother dumps her American daughter with her grandpa while she goes off to work in China for a few months. The kid is obnoxious, loud and rude, but since this is a kid’s film that’s apparently no problem. For a kid raised in NY her English is terrible, and her mother speaks with an Australian accent. Very weird, but okay. I guess it’s not easy to find actors that speak fluent Cantonese (or was it Mandarin?) and English. Anyway, this was a fun little sidestep, but I’d just forget about this one before it takes up space on your watchlist.

The Wild Party CoverOriginal title: The Wild Party
Year: 1929
Director: Dorothy Arzner
Duration: 77 min.
Genre: Drama

The Wild Party, an early talkie, starts off as a straight forward high school drama. The popular girl (Clara Bow) develops a crush on the hot new teacher (Frederic March). All your typical stereotype students are there. The bookworm, the flirt, the leader, the followers, etc. The film makers in 1929 were still adapting to sound pictures. Microphones were often hidden inside or behind big props, meaning the actors had to stand close to them with their heads turned right so the mic would catch their voices. That’s why a lot of the early talkies are very static – people simply could not move much. But the sound crew of The Wild Party was the first to experiment with a fishpole microphone allowing them to hold it above the actors as they gained more freedom to move. It shows, this film does not feel static at all. It’s still only a mediocre film, but it certainly isn’t because of sluggish talking or boring static scenes.

Siembra CoverOriginal title: Siembra
Year: 2015
Director: Ángela Maria Osorio Rojas
Duration: 80 min.
Genre: Drama

As a Christmas present (more or less) MUBI decided to give me Siembra, I think my first ever Columbian film. I couldn’t pass up the chance to make my world map (see below) a little fancier so I watched it straight away. In Siembra a father and his son have moved from their farm to a village. The son is into street dancing (I think, it’s a little vague) and he ends up dead. Again it isn’t very clear how or why. But given his death, the father has to cope with this loss in an environment that isn’t his real home. Siembra isn’t straight forward in its story telling. It doesn’t feel coherent all the time, but it’s concrete enough to be able to follow what is happening. A lot of the scenes are simply long takes of people’s faces or people doing menial tasks. The music is pretty amazing though and the black and white photography is also excellent. All in all Siembra was a worthwhile film, although it is definitely not one for the masses.

Begone Dull Care CoverOriginal title: Begone Dull Care
Year: 1949
Director: Evelyn Lambart
Duration: 7 min.
Genres: Animation, Music

Seven minutes of nice jazz music by the Oscar Peterson Trio set to hyperactive animation that moves with the flow of the music. There’s nothing more to say really, just watch it yourself. In general people really seem to like it. I didn’t even though the music was fine. I thought the animation was well done but boring and just a gimmick repeated over and over again for seven minutes.

Things We Lost in the Fire CoverOriginal title: Things We Lost in the Fire
Year: 2007
Director: Susanne Bier
Duration: 113 min.
Genre: Drama

I had already seen Susanne Bier’s In a Better World last year – and loved it. Things We Lost in the Fire, together with 2014’s Serena, are her only two English films. The latter is carried entirely by a stellar performance of Benicio Del Toro who plays a drug addict trying to get back on his feet after his best and only friend is killed. The rest of the cast is pretty good too, although I can’t seem to get used to Halle Berry. I liked this film but I think I’d rather stick to her Danish efforts.

También la lluvia CoverOriginal title: También la lluvia
Year: 2010
Director: Icíar Bollaín
Duration: 103 min.
Genre: Drama

Even the Rain is one of those films about making films. In it a crew has travelled to Bolivia to shoot a film about the Spanish colonial conquerors and an anti-slavery priest set hundreds of years ago. There is also a woman trying to make a making-of documentary but that plot line is quickly lost for some reason. A lot of locals are cast to play the many natives in the film, but at the same time a multinational corporation is claiming the water supply and raising prices. One of the key native actors is also one of the leaders of a resistance against this corporation, something that quickly seems to get out of hand. In the last quarter of the film the story gets lost in what seems to be a B action film and it feels really out of place. But overall there is more than enough to think about while watching – the parallels between the events of the film being shot and the water business for instance. Despite the weird ending still worth a watch.

Bande de filles CoverOriginal title: Bande de filles
Year: 2014
Director: Céline Sciamma
Duration: 113 min.
Genre: Drama

In a year in which Boyhood was making the news I guess the film title translators of this world thought it would be a good idea to brand this French drama Girlhood. About the only thing these films have in common is that they’re both coming-of-age stories. Girlhood takes place in a black neighbourhood in – I think – one of the banlieues of Paris. Two great scenes, one being the opening shot and the other its companion piece featuring a very popular song by a US artist were the highlights of the film for me. I had some difficulties identifying with the characters, I think because they and their lives are so far removed from the kind of world I grew up and still live in. I did like how the main actress, Karidja Touré, started out being an insecure girl and ended up being much more self confident. Girlhood is not the kind of film I’d normally choose to watch, so I’m glad that I forced myself to do so because of this challenge. In this case I’m glad I did. I liked it a lot more than I originally thought I would.

Falling Leaves CoverOriginal title: Falling Leaves
Year: 1912
Director: Alice Guy
Duration: 12 min.
Genre: Drama

On this last day of the year I was wrapping up this post and I noticed I hadn’t watched any Alice Guy or Lois Weber. Shame on me, and so I set out to correct that immediately. I included a few other Alice Guy shorts, even shorter than this one, in the section below to watch. Falling Leaves was the longest one. It was shot on a single film reel with it being only 12 minutes long. Falling Leaves is a sweet little story about a girl who falls ill. It’s got the sweetest scene with the girl’s younger sister. Watch it here.

Suspense CoverOriginal title: Suspense
Year: 1913
Director: Lois Weber
Duration: 10 min.
Genres: Drama, Thriller

Alice Guy was the first female film director, but she was from France. Lois Weber was the first American female director. She co-directed, wrote and starred in this 10 minute long thriller. There are some neat film techniques to be found in these ten minutes. The phone conversations were nice and the two shots from the tramp, one from above and another while he walked up the stairs into the camera are great. There’s lots of other good stuff going on so do yourself a favour and take the 10 minutes to watch this old gem here.


Before wrapping things up with a super long list, here are a few things that may be of interest. Things I’ve missed or that are just too short to include. Or things I had already seen that I still think are worth watching.

And now what?

Before enjoying some well deserved oliebollen I’m left wondering what’s next. I missed a lot of films these past 12 months that I really would like to catch up on eventually. I mean I never did get around to watching Le Bonheur and Vagabond, or anything by Naomi Kawase for instance. Looking at the map above I can’t help but notice I left an entire continent (no it’s not Antarctica you smart-ass!) untouched and that needs work. I’d still like to see Jeanne Dielman some day, and Liv Ullmann’s Faithless, but they’re both very long and I think that’s why I never got around to them. I also didn’t get to some very well known films, like Big, Fish Tank, Wayne’s World, The Piano or Little Miss Sunshine. There’s still plenty to watch, and who knows what 2017 will bring. Let’s hope for another film as amazing as Toni Erdmann, which has been my favourite 2016 release (male and female directed) ever since I saw it. Anyway, it has been fun, bring on 2017! But not before one more – I’m happy to say rather lengthy – list and a final famous film quote.

The list!
