Not going to write about that you've seen a thousand times: "the Fifth element", "Alien" and pictures of Kubrick. Today in our program more rare instances.
These films were made with the 70‑ies of the last century to our time in Italy, England, France, Poland and other from Spain. We can not guarantee that all of the tapes you are going to adore in the end, it's the European cinema, where every second picture is obtained by Arthouse, even if it is removed for Housewives. But these movies will help to distract from Hollywood and to be proud of small cinema.
Inquiry pilot Pirks / Test pilota Pirxa, 1978, Poland
Formally movie listed the Soviet-Polish, but the Polish in it much more than the Soviet. It is a curious and not at all shameful shot psychological fiction, where the astronaut is sent on an expedition to test pilot a crew of humanoid robots. Made on the novel by Stanislaw LEM "the Inquiry", although the themes are more typical of Isaac Asimov with his eternal conflicts of artificial intelligence.
Train horror / Horror Express 1972, UK, Spain
English scientists dug driven somewhere fossil of a creature through Russia by rail, and, of course, the evil forces are out of control. Despite tradewaste design, not the bad picture in the genre of Russian-European c horror Christopher Lee in the title role.
Bunker "the Palace hotel" / Bunker Palace Hôtel, 1989, France
Almost no one had the vision, but extremely stylish the post-apocalyptic picture. And since the film is shot by the French, then, of course, a luxurious bunker with the survivors will be just the decoration for reproof socio-political plagues of our time.
Epidemic / Los últimos días, 2013, Spain, France
Another post-Apocalypse, too beautiful, it is also taken in the streets of Barcelona, which was empty due to the fact that people are unable to go outside. So here they were struck with the disease.
Seconds / Split Second 1992, UK
A fantastic action movie with Rutger Hauer on the suppression of an unknown killer on the flooded streets of post-apocalyptic London. Inexpensive, but its cheerful, conjures up associations with the "Predator" and "blade Runner".
Lobster / The Lobster, 2015, Greece, Ireland, The Netherlands, UK, France
The plot is weirder than the weirdest episode of "Black mirror" in the future people are forced in order to find a mate, but lonely losers forced to become animals. The "lobster" has caused fierce discussions — from rejection to cries of "Best film of the year". Both obvious extremes. However, the film does not hide that is designed special to fans of progressive art. Keep that in mind, inserting a tape into the VCR (just kidding).
The leaders of Atlantis / Warlords of Atlantis 1978, UK
The hit of the Soviet film distribution, playful adventure film about the English, who, with the help of the submarine found a underwater city with monsters and sexy Babes. Formally obliged to be trash, but in reality looks much better than the DIY genre of the era.
Time lords / Les maîtres du temps, 1982, France, Switzerland, Germany, great Britain, Hungary
Another megahit the Soviet era, the animated rené laloux. A remarkable story with a simple but very deep plot multiplied by the outstanding fantastic graphics. If one cartoon you not, see the full length album "wild planet" and "GANDAHAR. Light years" by the same author.
When the end of the world / Bis ans Ende der Welt, 1991, Germany, France, Australia
Tiring long (2 hours 40 minutes), but it's beautiful work by experienced festivalsite WIM Wenders. Romantic (!) a movie about how the world lives in anticipation of his death was worth an astronomical by European standards $ 23 million, and not collected almost nothing. But the soundtrack I wrote for Depeche Mode, R. E. M., U2, Lou reed and Peter Gabriel. Tell you a secret that if you look at the movie only to the middle, he seems much better, almost perfect.
Immortal: war of the worlds / Immortel (ad vitam), 2004, France, Italy, UK
Very strange movie, filmed in a mixed cinematic-animated manner. The action takes place in the year 2095, when people are able to genetically modify your body any way you please. What is happening on the screen a little bit confusing, but the beauty is incredible.
Pandorum / Pandorum, 2009, Germany, UK
Most famous of all of the movies on this list, but in case anybody forgot. A strong representative of the genre of "Massacre in a very dark corridors of a space ship", fans of the "Alien" and "Through the horizon" will be satisfied.
Babylon N. Uh. / Babylon A. D., 2008, France
Mathieu Kassovitz took over 70 million movie where VIN Diesel in the dystopian future world carries some priceless girl from Troitsk to Vladivostok to sit on a submarine. The success of the movie is not earned, and it deserved — but don't you miss the chance to see Gerard Depardieu in the role of the Russian mafia?
Frequently asked questions about time travel/ Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel 2009, UK
Chamber golovskoi movie sights on the goal — have fun opening and closing the key aspects of time travel and paradoxes arise. The theme, of course, the movie is not exhausted, but for fans of the time machine is a must-see, not even resist.
The Chrysalis / Chrysalis, 2007, France
Detective about the future, about dangerous medical experiments and murder on the streets of Paris. Removed hard, but the characters sometimes blunt and not childish. Therefore, the "chrysalis" — not the best movie in this world, but still from "Alphaville" we are not so much seen French fiction in the costume detective.
Mystery dungeon / Eden Log 2007, France
A very specific French canadian response to the "Cube". The way out of the mysterious dungeon looking for only one character, although along the way he'll meet a variety of good people and bad guys. Puzzles there but the home where he is and who he is. There is a thick plaque cyberpunky the oddities that many people like.
The city of lost children / La cité des enfants perdus, 1995, France, Germany, Spain, Belgium
Slightly grosely, but mental and scenic steampunk from the Director of "Amelie" and "Delicacies". Story is better not to repeat, as it resembles either nonsense, or terrible childhood dream. In fact, the terrible children's dreams and the movie itself.
Cargo / Cargo, 2009, Switzerland
Switzerland, birthplace of the Creator of the Alien (artist H. R. Giger), spawned a film, the plot of which is very, very with the "Stranger" in common. Lady gets on a transport ship, where the bulk of the crew is in an artificial sleep, and waking watch faces weird. Just be warned: the result is not quite "Alien".
Nirvana / Nirvana, 1997, Italy, France, UK
One of the iconic cyberpunkish of quinoprotein. Note that "Nirvana" was filmed before the "Matrix" in those days, when cyberpunk imagined a little differently than it is now. It's the film is about a computer game, which, as usual, came out from under the control of the Creator.
Life force / Lifeforce, 1985, UK
The film is unusual in its genre: Gothic cosmowarrior. Yes, about the invasion of aliens. Anyway, no time to explain, take it on faith: it is rich (for its time) made a horror story, a space vampires doing different kind of bloody violence. English movie though, but the Director is the Yankees Tobe Hooper, Creator of the "Texas chainsaw massacre".
Attack the block / Attack the Block, 2011, UK
Movie which idea (not the fact that consciously) loggerheads Bondarchuk for "Attraction". Only in the English prototype of all zawodzie! Aliens land in South Butovo London, after which the local lads and the boys begin to wet them. Cheap and shot in the dark swashbuckling trash with a minimum preachy snot.
