Russia 1962

directed by
Andrei Tarkovsky

Valentin Zubkov
Yevgeni Zharikov
Stepan Krylov
Nikolai Grinko
Irma Raush

Vyacheslav Ovchinnikov

Vadim Yusov


Ever so often, I discover things on YouTube by Related Videos of something I watched before, or also by the video recommendations on my Starting Page.

Today, I stumbled over a complete posting of Andrei Tarkowski's debut film IVAN'S CHILDHOOD from 1962. As I knew about the movie, but had not watched it, I took the time and did so. And I found reason enough to collect it in a playlist on my channel, and then also to make a entry here.

The movie is in Russian, with English subtitles.


I had indeed watched several scenes from this movie before: In a fan-made video for the song THE BOY WITH THE GUN by David Sylvian.

Although the lyrics and the movie's plot don't match in detail, I found the video very amazing, as I loved the song, and was captivated by the intenity of the images. Hope you enjoy ...

BROKEN CRAYONS (2009) - Official Trailer


A Hispanic boy named Sean, who has recently become an orphan, arrives at his new home, a small orphanage. He meets the teacher and headmistress and the kids that live there, and although at first sight, the surroundings seem idyllic, it becomes clear very soon that this place holds no love, compassion, friendship and trust among the inmates.

Trying to find his way there, Sean soon has to make a decision, whether to blend in with the others, or to speak up against an atmosphere of injustice and maltreatment on so many levels. But tragedy strikes, and leaves every one dumbfounded, aghast and helpless.
