I watched a part of this foreign film on the TV last year. I can't recall what the name is, and I've been trying to figure out what it was for a few days now to no avail. The language was either French or Italian (my memory isn't the best). I want to lean more towards French as I think I remember seeing the name Pierre (either an actor or character) attached to the information of the film that I saw on the guide. All I can really remember about the movie is that this man was in this apartment/hotel at some point and a priest (I think) was talking to him. The man had a best friend who was an alcoholic, and at some point during the movie, he had drank so much that he was in some barn, passed out. The man trekked through the snow to get him because his wife was giving birth to his child. Earlier in the film, he was in a wooded area, talking to his friend's wife about him. Does anyone know what this film is named?
When I was a boy in the 1960's I watched two films, which have left fragments in my mind. I think the first film is Italian, probably in the genre of neo realism. A dark-haired man is locked inside the freezing room by an accident. The other man doesn't know about the man inside. The second film is part war film, part fantasy film. I remember two scenes. In the first scene two men are talking in the living room of a house, which may have been damaged by a bomb (World War II?) It occured to me that the living room somewhat looked like a circus manege. In the second scene a flame is "wandering" from what I remember as a mansion on the top of a hill to a camp. The camp is inhabitated by poor people and the men have dark beards. They may be refugees, gypsies or simply poor people. The flame looked unreal to me, it was perhaps made by animation tools. This is also why I have written that it might have been a fantasy film. Do you recognize those two films, which may be Europan?
