Wolmi Island - This Korean war film is laughably bad propaganda. It shows the defense force of an island fighting against the US and its allies during the Korean war. Of course the Koreans are depicted as valiant heroes who inflicted a whopping 13 ship casualty on the enemy. :lol: This is only really interesting if you want to see what their cinema is like but even then I would recommend other, better made films. This one is terrible.

Samraat -  In this Bollywood film, a cast of odd characters meet up to find the ship Samraat and get the gold aboard it. The former captain had been running an illicit scheme and the daughter hires two men to find the ship. Of course the men realize the ship has gold and each  wants to find the gold for their own ends and they are willing to work together for it. This one tries way too hard to be funny but the jokes just fall flat to me. I'm also not a fan of the lame, musical interludes. This one is worth a 4/10.

The Great Chess Movie (1982) documentary by Gilles Carle wasn't exactly great but anyone wanting to see a bit more of Bobby Fischer and Anatoly Karpov might wish to take a look.  There is a copy on youtube.

French actor Robert Hossein directed the 1982 version of Les Miserables.  Lino Ventura starred as Valjean; Michel Bouquet as Jalvert.  But it was Jean Carmet (above) as Thenardier who won a Cesar Award (supporting actor).  I saw a dubbed version of this film some time ago.  Not bad.

Michel Serrault has a small respectable hat shop in provincial France in Claude Chabrol's The Hatter's Ghost (1982).   It is a fun but macabre film.  We learn the major spoiler early on that Serrault has killed his wife some time ago but keeps up the pretence that she is bed ridden in the apartment above the store.  Charles Aznavour is a suspicious neighbour who has a shop across the lane.  But why are all the friends of his deceased wife being murdered one by one?  Serrault shines as usual.

Krystyna-Janda-%E2%80%93-Interrogation.j

It came as no surprise that Richard Bugajski's Interrogation (1982) was banned by the Polish government.  Krystyna Janda plays a woman who is imprisoned for years until she confesses to a crime she did not commit.  It certainly owes something to Kafka's The Trial and even The Passion of Joan of Arc (picture below).  The film was eventually released in Poland in late December 1989 and then at Cannes in 1990.  Janda won the Cannes Best Actress prize.  At times the film and the performances seem a bit too obvious but there is no denying that it is still powerful.
