Review: On a hot summer day three boys are splashing around the river. One of them gets his hand caught in the stone masonry of a railway bridge. Many peasants, the passengers from the train, which stops nearby, and the crews of tanks taking part in a military exercise flock to the scene of accident. People drop out whatever they are doing; even the maneuvers get stopped to come to the help of a child. Action must be taken quickly because the water level is rising fast. The concerted efforts of all involved people help save the child. Thus a particular case, an extreme situation has served as a test of significant and insignificant in our life, which often happens to become transposed. - IMDb

Review: In this surprising Spanish film, a group of young adolescents combine their resources to outwit their elders and enable one of their number to undergo pregnancy and childbirth without ever coming to the attention of an adult. Paloma and Arturo are 13 and 15, respectively. They meet for the first time in front of the Prado, and soon fall in love. Despite restrictive family circumstances, their friends arrange for them to have time together. Paloma then becomes pregnant as a result of a skiing trip. At first, the two young lovers plan to escape to India, where even at their ages they could be married. This does not work out, and instead Arturo and all their friends study pregnancy and childbirth so as to arrange for Paloma to give birth clandestinely. Because her single father is a traveling salesman, and she lives with an oblivious grandmother, this scheme is not altogether impossible. - Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide

Review: In a town near Lille, melancholy police superintendent Pharaon De Winter lives with his mother. An 11-year-old girl has been raped and murdered. Over the next week, De Winter investigates and grieves, his face nearly expressionless. He bikes, he gardens. He accompanies his neighbors, Joseph and Domino, to dinner and to the seaside; he even observes them in vigorous if not rough coitus. For Domino, sex seems her way of connecting. Does she fancy Pharaon? A plowed field, the sea, Pharaon's flowers, the pudenda of Domino and of the ravaged girl - this mix of images of beauty, evil, and possibility assaults Pharaon as he tries to do his job and hold on to his humanity. - IMDb
