Aventurile lui Tom Sawyer (1968)
Film romanesc intreg

Aventurile lui Tom Sawyer (în engleză The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer) este un roman scris de Mark Twain și apărut în anul 1876. Este o lucrare considerată ca literatură pentru copii, dar este citit cu plăcere și de unii adulți. Din cauza jargonului folosit de autor, romanul după publicație inițial a fost pus în America pe lista cărților interzise. (notita, jargonul se refera la denumirea care era data negrilor in anii aceia).

Copilul orfan Thomas Sawyer este crescut împreună cu fratele său vitreg Sid și verișoara Mary de mătușa Polly în satul american „St Petersburg” de pe malul fluviului Mississippi, denumire fictivă a orașului natal al autorului Hannibal, Missouri. În roman apar și Huckleberry Finn, un prieten de-al lui Tom, sclavul negru Jim, precum și Joe Indianul, un răufăcător căutat de autorități. Sid un copil model, îl pârăște la fiecare ocazie pe fratele său neastâmpărat Tom. Acesta chiulește de la școală, ducându-se la scăldat, se bate cu alți copii și se împrietenește cu Huckleberry Finn, un vagabond al cărui tată este un bețiv. Tom în peripețiile sale este în căutare de comori. Cu această ocazie este martorul unei crime comise în cimitir. În cele din urmă Tom descoperă pe Joe Indianul într-o peșteră. Cu ajutorul lui răufăcătorul este prins de autorități, iar Tom este sărbătorit ca erou. Autorul prezintă cu simpatie, înțelegere și umor aventurile personjului său principal, povestire care îl face pe cititor să-și reamintească de zilele fericite și fără griji ale copilăriei sale.

Aventurile lui Tom Sawyer

Eroul principal al romanului este un băiat pe nume Huckleberry Finn care trăiește în târgușorul american imaginar St. Petersburg, Missouri, situat pe râul Mississippi, și duce o viată de hoinar, până când o vaduvă îl ia să îl educe și să îl învețe carte. Dar când prinsese și el puțin gustul modului lui nou de viață, apare tatăl său care îl răpește pe o insulă a râului, vrând astfel să îl dezvețe cu forța de bunele maniere proaspăt învățate. Huck evadează de acolo, înscenând totul ca și cum ar fi fost omorât. El fuge pe o altă insulă unde se întâlnește cu un negru fugar pe nume Jim. Cei doi se duc pe o plută în statele libere, dar în drumul lor ei întâlnesc doi hoți care îl vând pe Jim ca sclav unui fermier, unchiul personajului de roman Tom Sawyer. Huck fuge și, împreună cu Tom, îl eliberează pe Jim în stil eroic, fugind cu toții in Teritoriul Indian. Sursa pentru info si poze – wikipedia.

The 3 Deadliest Words In The World – „It’s A Girl” : Evan Grae Davis – Gendercide: the greatest human rights issue of our time & the greatest form of violence in the world

Here is an article whose subject – gendercide- is absolutely devastating. The statistics are staggering.

What is gendercide? Gendercide is the systematic killing of members of a specific sex. 

The ugly facts of gendercide: China and India kill more girls than are born in the whole United States in one year. And then the aftermath: In China there are 37 million more men than women, leading to kidnappings of women from other countries and resulting in a high number of child brides. Filmmaker Evan Grae Davis has filmed a documentary that focuses on these two countries.

Even in a secular society, life is the most basic human right there is. For those of us that live our lives for the God who created us, it is much, much more. Psalm 127:3 says, „Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.” Ezekiel 16:36-38 speaks about the judgment against those that gave the blood of their children to their idols. Jeremiah 22:17 speaks about „shedding innocent blood, and for practicing oppression and violence.” Just look at the picture below, the terrified women held in a cell and awaiting a brutal forced abortion after having been busted in by the Family Planning Police of China and arrested. And then there is Exodus 20:13 „You shall not murder”, one of 10 commandments given to mankind.

The 3 Deadliest Words In The World – „It’s A Girl”

Photo credit and story below from

In India, China and many other parts of the world today, girls are killed, aborted and abandoned simply because they are girls. The United Nations estimates as many as 200 million girls are missing in the world today because of this so-called „gendercide”.

This is a trailer for a documentary that shows some of the faces of women and societies in China and India that contribute to the genocide of girls. Following a 3 minute documentary trailer for the film, ‘It’s a Girl’ director Evan Grae Davis gives a TEDxTalk.

About the speaker:
From the Aral Sea disaster in Eastern Europe to poverty in Africa to social transformation among tribal groups of South America, ‘It’s a Girl’ director Evan Grae Davis has traveled the globe with camera in hand for 16 years. Evan has dedicated his career to advocating for social justice through writing and directing short documentaries and educational videos championing the cause of the poor and exploited. Evan draws from his experience and passion as he lends leadership to Shadowline Films, a team of filmmakers who share a common concern for the critical issues of our time. It’s a Girl is his first feature-length documentary.

It’s a girl, a film being released this year, documents the practice of killing unwanted baby girls in South Asia. The trailer’s most chilling scene is one with an Indian woman who, unable to contain her laughter, confesses to having killed eight infant daughters.

The statistics are sickening. The UN reports approximately 200 million girls in the world today are ‘missing’. India and China are said to eliminate more female infants than the number of girls born in the US each year. Lianyungang in China has the worst infant gender ratio on record with 163 boys born for every 100 girls. Taiwan, South Korea and Pakistan are also countries in which unwanted female babies are aborted, killed or abandoned.

About the talk:
Evan talks about the global problem of female genocide using some eye opening statistics, powerful real life experiences and most importantly through his documentary making journey. His documentary is called „It’s a girl”.

The Hiding Place -The story of Corrie Ten Boom

Published on Apr 4, 2012 by 

For her efforts to hide Jews from arrest and deportation during the German occupation of the Netherlands, Corrie ten Boom (1892-1983) received recognition from the Yad Vashem Remembrance Authority as one of the „Righteous Among the Nations” on December 12, 1967. In resisting Nazi persecution, ten Boom acted in concert with her religious beliefs, her family experience, and the Dutch resistance. Her defiance led to imprisonment, internment in a concentration camp, and loss of family members who died from maltreatment while in German custody.

The ten Boom family were members of the Dutch Reformed Church, which protested Nazi persecution of Jews as an injustice to fellow human beings and an affront to divine authority. In her autobiography, ten Boom repeatedly cited religious motivations for hiding Jews, particularly her family’s strong belief in a basic tenet of their religion: the equality of all human beings before God. Their religious activities had also brought the family a history of personal connections to the Jewish community. Corrie’s grandfather had supported efforts to improve Christian-Jewish relations in the nineteenth century. Her brother Willem, a Dutch Reformed minister assigned to convert Jews, studied antisemitism and ran a nursing home for elderly of all faiths. In the late 1930s that nursing home became a refuge for Jews fleeing from Germany.

After World War II began, members of the ten Boom family became involved in resistance efforts. Two nephews worked in resistance cells. Various family members sheltered young men sought by the Nazis for forced labor and assisted Jews in contacting persons willing to hide them. Corrie became directly involved in these efforts when, along with her father and sister Betsie, she decided to hide Jews in the family home in Haarlem, the Netherlands. Using her job as a watchmaker in her father’s shop as a cover, Corrie built contacts with resistance workers, who assisted her in procuring ration books and building a hiding place in the family home.

Six people, among them both Jews and resistance workers, hid in this hiding place when the Gestapo (German secret state police) raided the house on February 28, 1944. Those in hiding remained undiscovered. Several days after the raid resistance workers transferred them to other locations. In the meantime, however, the Gestapo had arrested Corrie ten Boom, her father, her brother and two sisters, and other family members. In addition, the Gestapo arrested several resistance workers who had unwittingly entered the house during the raid, as well as many family acquaintances who had been attending a prayer meeting in the living room. Altogether, the Gestapo arrested some 30 people in the ten Boom family home that day.

After holding them briefly in the penitentiary in Scheveningen, a seaside town close to The Hague, the Gestapo released all but three of the ten Boom family members. Corrie ten Boom, her older sister Betsie, and her father Casper remained in prison. Casper ten Boom became sick in prison and died in a hospital corridor only ten days after the arrest. The sisters remained in the Scheveningen prison until June 1944, when officials transferred them to an internment camp at Vught, in the Netherlands. In September 1944, the Nazis deported Corrie and Betsie ten Boom to the Ravensbrueck concentration camp in Germany. In Ravensbrueck, the sisters managed to stay together until Betsie died that December.

The camp administration released Corrie ten Boom in late December 1944. Along with other released prisoners, she traveled by train to Berlin, where she arrived on January 1, 1945. From Berlin, ten Boom journeyed across Germany by train until she reached the Netherlands, where she reunited with surviving members of her family.

After the war, ten Boom advocated reconciliation as a means for overcoming the psychological scars left by the Nazi occupation. She later traveled the world as an evangelist, motivational speaker, and social critic, referring to her experiences in Ravensbrueck as she offered solace to prisoners and protested the Vietnam War.

Coming Fall 2012 – a movie on the life of St. Augustine (trailer)

This looks like a good movie to see, based on Augustine’s own writings. (via See more at or follow on Facebook here.

Published on Jun 13, 2012 by 

430 AD. The Roman Empire is beginning to crumble. The Vandals and other marauding tribes spill through the gaps in Roman defenses. And one of the greatest saints of the Christian church stands between his flock and the barbarian invaders. As he attempts to negotiate between the proud Roman authorities and the implacable Vandal king, Bishop Augustine recalls his own life before Christianity…

In this stirring and epic new film on the life of St. Augustine of Hippo, follow the great saint as he rises from his reckless days as a youth to his accomplishments as a renowned but dissolute orator. Though worldly success and riches come his way, including a position in the imperial court of Milan, satisfaction and peace elude him. It takes a confrontation with the Christian bishop Ambrose and the countless prayers offered by his patient mother, Monica, to break through his intellectual pride.

Starring Alessandro Preziosi, Monica Guerritore, Johannes Bandrup, and Franco Nero.
