"Die Blechtrommel"

Die Blechtrommel (Tin Drum) won Best Foreign Film Oscar in 1980, along with several other awards. It is a complex story told against a complex backdrop. A young boy is given a tin drum on his third birthday. He also decides not to grow up, because he is unimpressed by the way grownups act. His mother is married to a fruit and vegetable shop keeper, but has regular trysts with another man. It is the other man that is father to Oskar. Oskar falls down the cellar stairs to stunt his growth, and it works. When someone tries to take his drum from him, he discovers that his scream is so shrill he can break glass. That is strange and complex enough.

The story of Oskar and his family is told against the backdrop of Poland beginning after WW1, and shows Hitler's rise to power. Fine acting, and very clever directing manage to give justice to both the main story, and the backdrop. The film is, at times, visually stunning, and contains many memorable images. Unless you live in Oklahoma, I recommend it. Why Oklahoma, you ask? Because the good people of Oklahoma determined that some passages involving Oskar (who was supposed to be 18 but look like a child) and a girl his age were kiddie porn, and banned it. They purged it from video stores, and even went to the h0omes of people who had rented it and confiscated those copies. Maltin gives it 4 stars, a rating I agree with. IMDB readers have it at 7.9/10.

The exposure is from Angela Winkler, who you might remember from "The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum," and includes the big three -- bush boobs and buns.

    No Johnny Web material today, just StoneCold and TomCat. I really had a lot of catching up to do with these two guys. StoneCold always sends in unadorned scans (with ludicrous file names), and I add the borders and lettering and such. TomCat usually sends in single frames from movies, and I cobble them into collages similar to the ones I make from my own captures. This time he also sent a few other items, mostly runway shots, making him the new Blinky. Well, they are Polish runways so I guess he'd be Blinkowski.

    Gee, I'd love to review "Chce mi sie wyc" for you, but I'd have to take a month off just to learn how to pronounce it. As you may know, Polish is my native language in the sense that it was the first language I ever spoke, but now I can't even read the first simple words and sentences in the "baby book" that my mom used to keep. When I was a high school kid, I used to tell my mom and dad that in a perfect world the Polish people would all escape from Communism, come to the USA, and find a new home in Hawaii. Since Hawaiian has all vowels, and Polish has all consonants, maybe a few generations of intermarriage might produce one sensible language.

    My mom was not amused but, then again, moms never are.

    At any rate, I fell behind with their material, so here's my catch-up: more than 30 brand-new images from The Polish Prince and The New York Daily Nudes.

    TOMCAT (comments by TomCat)

    1. Renata Dancewicz in various fashion shows and magazines.

    2. Renata Dancewicz in "Deborah" 1995, PL db Ryszard Brylski
    (1, 2, 3, 4)

    Renata plays a Jewish girl in 1939, the year of the German invasion of Poland. The Gestapo major lives in Renata's father house. All the Jews were being rounded up and/or killed. Everyone who helped them would be killed. In this desperate plight, Renata found help from her Polish Christian lover. He hid her in his house, and after some time she had to move to a hideout in his cellar.

    3. Dorota Pomykala "Chce mi sie wyc" 1989, PL db Jacek Skalski
    (1, 2, 3)

    This is a movie about the adventures of a lonely widow and a much younger man.

    4. Dorota Pomykala in "Ojciec Krolowej" (The Queen's Father) 1980, PL db by Wojciech Solorz

    5. Iwona Bielska "Znaki Zodiaku" 1978, Gerald Zalewski

    Comments by Brainscan:
    What kind of day is it when we down on the Brainscan farm can bring you two, count 'em two Argentinian fashion models? A damn good day. Almudena Fernandez is pretty well known north of the border the color scan of her comes from Man magazine when she was maybe 19... 20 tops. Nicole Neumann is more of a local gal but nonetheless a looker.

    Page babe of the day is one of my personal faves for reasons that aren't that difficult to explain: those eyes, those lips... those boobs. What isn't there to like?

    Comments by Oz:

    Heather Locklear As always, looking very lovely. When you see her outfit for the first time you're hoping the string will break. But, as she told the Tonight Show audience, there were a couple of 'flowers' covering the important parts if there should be an accident.
    Carla Gugino Carla has appeared a couple of times recently in the Fun House. In this non-nude collage from Snake Eyes, Carla is in her underwear cleaning off blood. In the movie Carla plays a whistle-blower whose contact is killed as she tries to talk to him. Hence the blood. Overall, I quite enjoyed the movie.
    Laura San Giacomo Laura plays the female lead in Quigley (Quigley Down Under). It's a sort of western set in outback Australia during the last century. Tom Selleck is Quigley and he is a sharp-shooter hired to kill aborigines. However, his conscience prevents him from doing this. He 'picks up' Laura in his travels. This is a cleavage collage only.

    A blast from the past, Marthe is shown topless in two movies, Marathon Man (#1) and Bobby Deerfield (#2).

    From the movie "Tales of the City"

    There are three women who took their tops off in this series: Chloe Webb (this scene has appeared before in the Fun House), Barbara Garrick and Carolyn Lowery.

    All I know about my weekend contribution is the movie "Corps plonges" with Geno Lechner that won an award at the Montréal World Film Festival in 1998.

    I don't know anything about the two other girls and the movie "Siren's Kiss". But in my opinion they look good.

    Kristen Knittle Also going topless from "Siren's Kiss".
    Catherine Weber One more exposed pectoral region from "Siren's Kiss".
    Angelina Jolie

    As always, any Jolie nudity is good nudity. Here is a very nice collection of frames highlighting her brief breast exposure scene from "Pushing Tin".
    Sophie Marceau Cleavage and topless scenes from "La Fille de d'Artagnan".
    Josie Maran

    The rest of these images by CHUD are all new scans. Beginning with one of my favorite models. No nudity in any of these, but lot's of bikinis, sexy poses. etc. Josie #1 is my favorite of all of these.

    From "Sam's Song" a.k.a "The Swap" a.k.a "Line of Fire". Apparently this was a very early De Niro film that was originally filmed in '69. Then was partially reshot and edited in '79 with the new actors and scenes used in conjunction with the footage from the the '69 version. Every review I saw calls this an absolute stinker.

    Two more of the beautiful model by RVF. Link #2 features the a better view of the really cool body art/tattoo thing that I mentioned yesterday.
    Summer Phoenix The youngest of the Phoenix clan....Not showing a thing.
    Daryl Hannah On the pokiosity meter...9.2! Plus, a legit exposed nipple too! Excellent collage for the Hannah fans by UC99. These scenes from one of very early movies, 1982's "Summer Lovers".
