Elizabeth : the Golden Age by Shekhar Kapur( Visual )

1585: Philip II's Catholic Spain is the most powerful empire in the world. Only England, ruled by Protestant Elizabeth, stands against him. The Queen is threatened by a depleted treasury, constant threats of assassination, and plots by Philip to install her cousin, Queen Mary of Scotland, on her throne. To which end a great armada is poised to invade England--as punishment for the capture of his treasure-ships, and to make Europe safe for Catholicism--even as Elizabeth's attention is diverted to Sir Walter Raleigh, returned from the New World with two gifts: the territory of Virginia and tobacco. Facing her greatest challenge, Elizabeth must rally her country to safeguard her kingdom, destroy her enemies, and secure her position as "Mother to her people."

The gaze by Mani Kaul( Visual )

2 editions published in 1990 in Hindi and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on 'The Meek One', a short story by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, a 40-year-old antique shop owner and money lender recounts his first meetings with his 17-year-old wife, when she pawned her items at his shop. As the film progresses, their marriage is revealed to be an unhappy one with his wife growing increasingly distant and contemptuous of him. Their relationship gets more complicated with each quarrel and consequent reconciliation, even driving his wife to point a gun to his head. Sadly, it is ultimately she herself who gets destroyed. A languidly-paced drama that is a departure from the average Indian narrative film, told largely through the internal monologue of the husband.

Året er 1585, og etter å ha regjert over England i nesten tre årtier, må dronning Elizabeth I fremdeles kjempe mot andres blodtørst etter tronen og den snikende trusselen av svik i familien. På den andre siden av den engelske kanalen blåser en destruktiv vind av fundamentalistisk katolisisme over det 16. århundrets Europa, med Spanias Philip II, som ledende figur. Kong Philip - med sin mektige hær og en armada som dominerer havet - har kirken i Roma og inkvisisjonen i ryggen. Han presenterer en forestående trussel for dronning og land. Den mørke og gudfryktige kongen er fast besluttet på å styrte den protestantiske "kjetteren" fra tronen og gjøre England til en romersk-katolsk prakt igjen. Mens Elizabeth I forbereder seg på å gå i krig for å forsvare sitt imperium, kjemper hun samtidig for å balansere mellom sine eldgamle, royale plikter, og en uventet svakhet, sin kjærlighet til Sir Walter Raleigh. Filmen hadde norsk kinopremiere 2.11.2007, og fikk terningkast 2 - 4

In an age of apocalypse, the legendary battle between good and evil continues in a new epic adventure. 1300 years into the future, the world has suffered apocalyptic devastation. Only two nations survive: Aryavarta, where the last vestiges of humankind dwells, and Nark, a dark continent ruled by the savage Asuras. Ravan, the demonic ruler of Nark, threatens Aryavarta with his desire for world domination, as his legions march forth and spread his evil empire. But hope remains in the form of four brothers, the princes of Aryavarta: Bharat, Shatrughan, Lakshman and the Prince Rama. They remain duty-bound to protect the war-torn outposts of Aryavarta from Ravan's forces but as the battle rages Prince Rama must choose between duty and the survival of his people.
