Help! What's The Name of That Film?

With such knowledgeable folk on the site I thought a list topic helping others remember the names of long forgotten films might be of some use.

If you are trying to remember a name of a film you watched 40 years ago or only 40 minutes ago then ask in here and let the Letterboxd community help you.

If somebody does solve your problem can you please confirm they have the correct film so I can add it to the list.

  • @poovey318, is it Coldwater?
    @Auteur, could it be "Exile to Siberia"/"Siberian Exile" or "Exiles" (1992)?

  • Can anyone help me identify a Palestinian film that revolves around a wedding. It is not Rana's Wedding. It is not plot-driven, more of a commentary on the customs and gender roles of the culture. The scene that is stuck in my mind involves a minefield right next to where the wedding is taking place. The family's/guests' horses go into the field but no one can chase after them because of the mines. There may or may not also be a plot relating to whether or not the bride is a virgin, and producing a bloody sheet? Not sure about that one though. Has anyone seen this???

  • @David K: Could it be Wedding in Galilee?

  • @Adam Cook, that looks like it! The title did not ring any bells so I hadn't checked that one out. Thanks!

  • @David: Glad I could help. I've been useless at solving some of the questions in this list recently.

  • Hi, I'm looking for a short TV film from the early 80s (I think) about a teenage boy and girl who get caught in snow. The girl is unpopular, the boy's leg gets broken in a trap and the girl helps them both survive. Any ideas? Thanks!

  • I'm looking for the name of a movie which I saw at the same time as weekend at Bernie's at the drive ins as a kid. It was about a plane that went missing off the radar and then appeared again. All the people had been replaced or something and they had glowing red eyes. Anyone have any idea?

    Thanks

  • @Blay: Sounds like Annihilator.

  • @adam: thanks but that's not it. I don't think it was an action movie but more of a thriller. All I remember is seeing the glowing red dots on my clock at night and thinking these things were coming to get me. I was only about 9 at the time. :)

  • @Bjay: I'm talking about Annihilator the TV-movie (YouTube link) which is more of a sci-fi thriller. It certainly fits your description, right down to the red eyes.

Please to comment.
