"Antonia's Line"

Antonia's Line (1995), named simply Antonia in The Netherlands, the country of origin, won the Best Foreign Film Oscar. It is a delightful story of a matriarchy, started by Antonia (Willeke van Ammelrooy) and her daughter Danielle (Els Dottermans). The film begins as WW II ends. Antonia goes back to her home town to bury her mother and raise her daughter. Her daughter comments, "It isn't much" when she sees the village. Antonia says, "That's what I thought when I left, and it hasn't changed much." They settle into a farming life, and acquire guests over time, such as the village idiot, a retarded woman after she is raped by one of her brothers, a woman who loves being pregnant (Wimie Wilhelm), the village priest, when he leaves the church, etc.

Danielle announces one day that she wants a baby. When questioned, she decides she doesn't want a husband, just a baby. Antonia explains that the local country men just make boys and follow cows, so takes her to the city to find a man. This sets up the famous scene where she wears the guy out doing it time after time, then stands on her head naked to make sure the sperm gets to the right place. This works, and she gives birth to a brilliant, beautiful daughter. Eventually, history repeats itself, and the daughter becomes pregnant.

These are just the highlights. If you haven't seen this film, you are really missing something. Although, as in real life, some tragic things happen, this is a very uplifting, affirming film that will have you constantly smiling. Els Dottermans shows everything, Elsie de Brauw, as her lesbian lover and her child's t4eacher shows breasts, and Wimie Wilhelm also shows breasts. IMDb readers have this at 7.4 of 10. This is a foreign language film with subtitles and a very feminist story, yet I adored it. It is clearly a B.

    "Flesh and Lace"

    Flesh and Lace (1964) is a difficult film for me to categorize. Made by Joe Sarno, it is probably early exploitation, and sort of a roughie. The story centers around two establishments. The first is a club with B girls who hustle drinks and a craps game in a back room. The other is a toy store/loan sharking business. Heather Hall is the newest employee at the bar, and is too shy to attract men into buying drinks. She is hanging on to her job by a thread, mainly because her roommate and coworker (Judy Young) is sleeping with the boss. Rook (Phil Mason) comes back to town with enough cash to pay of his markers, and starts back up with Judy Young. Young throws Hall out on her ear when she catches her with Mason.

    That is when Hall meets Joe Russell, the toy shop owner, and moves in with him. She has gone from shy to a nympho. Since the plot isn't terrible complex, I will stop here. Russell shows her buns, and is in lingerie frequently. Robin Marks, as one of the club dancers, shows breasts, and buns through sheer panties.

    There is no IMDB score as yet for this Something Weird release, and no reviews or comments. Thew transfer is pristine and I somewhat enjoyed seeing 50's looking women and 50s attitudes, but this is not a film that would entertain most people. If the genre is exploitation, this is a D, not because it is badly made, but because of the story.

    MOVIE REVIEWS:

    Here are the latest movie reviews available at scoopy.com.

    • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
    • If there is a white asterisk, it means that there isn't any significant humor, but I inexplicably determined there might be something else of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Junior or Brainscan, or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.

    .avi's from Shiloh.

    .wmv files made by Scoop from Shiloh's .avi's.

    NOTE: because of a unique combination of circumstances with the Windows media player and some substantial bandwidth theft, we will have to do all of our movie files in zip format. Left click on the files as you normally would to view a picture. When you get a choice, click on "save", and put it on your hard drive in the directory of your choice. UnZIP and play from there.

    I know this is not especially convenient, but it allows the film clips to continue. I can protect .zip files from hot-linking in the same way I can protect still images. For some reason, if I protect .avis and .wmvs from hot-linking, they will not play in the Windows media player, and I can't get a satisfactory work-around. Perhaps I will find a better solution, but for now this new policy allows you to continue getting the movie clips you want to see, which is much preferable to my abandoning the clips altogether.

    Perhaps these tips will help if you have trouble with the codecs for these movies:

    Shiloh says:

    FYI when I hypercam vids to make the file size smaller I use DivX MPEG-4 Fast-Motion for the video compressor, then I use virtualdub to compress the audio. The properties for the vids says the video codec:  DivX Decoder Filter & audio codec:  Morgan Stream Switcher which I'm not familiar with. When I compress the audio with virtualdub I use MPEG Layer-3.  A friend of mine told me about compressing the audio about (6) mos. ago. Like I said previously, only been capping for a year & a half & I'm no expert. Hopefully this info will help members with the proper codecs for my vids.
     
    When I cap big brother's I use hypercam mostly & sdp & asfrecorder if the set up allows me. I stopped using camtasia cause the file sizes were always too big, could never figure out the process, over my head lol, plus it cost too much to buy in my opinion.

    A reader says:

    You mentioned that some users were having trouble with the videos on your site. There is a tool designed to determine what codec is needed for a video. http://www.headbands.com/gspot/ Hope this is useful to you or your users.

    Scoop says:

    I made the .wmv versions of each video. The codecs for these: Windows Video V8, Windows Audio 9. The upside of these is that you know the codecs, and they'll play in the Windows Media Player. The downside is that they are slightly larger, and slightly lower quality.

    'Caps and comments by Oz:

    "Murder in Mind"
    Murder in Mind is the typical 'based on a true story' TV movie so there's little nudity. Some pokies and underwear by Jennie Nauman, Angie Ohren and Kristin Davis.


    "Atomic Train"
    Kristin Davis had a minor role in the very lame Atomic Train. No nudity but she looks good in her jumper.


    "Alila"
    Over to Israel for Alila, one of the more pointless movies you'll ever see. Yal Abecassis' nakedness is the only highlight.

    • Yal Abecassis (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)


    "Garage Days"
    Continuing eastwards and on to Australia, we have Garage Days. Some nice nips shown by Pia Miranda and Yvette Duncan. Natalie Jain plays the stripper but the credits have Cassandra McCann as the body double. I couldn't work out where one comes in. Cassandra might be in the more athletic scenes and Natalie in the topless scenes. There are also some sexy images of Maya Stange and Holly Brisley.

    • Pia Miranda (1, 2, 3)
    • Yvette Duncan (1, 2, 3)
    • Natalie Jain (with some body double work by Cassandra McCann) (1, 2)
    • Maya Stange (1, 2,
    • Holly Brisley


    "Blurred"
    Still in Australia but there is no nudity in Blurred, just pokies by Nathalie Roy. Marea Barker is the stripper but we're not around long enough to see the full strip.

    • Nathalie Roy (1, 2)
    • Marea Barker (1, 2)


    "The Healer"
    Back to Europe, although with an Australian actress Miranda Otto naked, we have The Healer, which is a co-production of several countries. Some movies have very poor credits, not listing some performers. This is the opposite. We only see Ginger Bergland's naked behind but she's in the credits. Likewise for Wioletta Kolokowska, who is a naked car accident victim.


    "Anna's Summer"
    Down to the Mediterranean we have the Greek Anna's Summer. Maria Skoula is topless and there's some see-through nudity by Angela Molina.

    • Maria Skoula (1, 2)
    • Angela Molina (1, 2, 3)


    "Profession of Arms"
    Still in the same area, we can see a topless Sandra Ceccarelli and Dessy Tenekedjieva in the Italian film The Profession of Arms (aka Il Mestiere delle armi)


    "Swedish Beauty"
    Finally, up to Scandinavia and we can see Swedish Beauty. Unfortunately, very little nakedness just some sexy caps of Jenny Ulving and Nadine Kirschon.

    Variety
    Susan Sarandon
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

    Fantastic toplessness in scenes from 1978's "Pretty Baby".

    Kristen Johnston
    (1, 2)

    Showing some serious pokies in scenes from an episode of "3rd Rock from the Sun".

    Cristi Harris
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

    Señor Skin 'caps from the direct-to-vid movie "Kiss of Death" (1995). Chances are you've never heard of her, but she does look pretty darn good topless.
