Requests

Hey guys,

Feel free to write in the comments below which movies you would like me to upload.

Remember I can’t just upload any movie, there a few rules that need to be followed in order to “green light” a film, the rules are the following:

  1. No Region 1 DVD/Bluray is available to purchase online.
  2. NEW For British films make sure the film isn’t available on Region 2 DVD otherwise I cannot upload it.
  3. Movie was released before the year 2004.
  4. Foreign films applies same rules, if the movie was released on DVD/Bluray but only in country of origin make sure it’s region locked, some studios release them with region 0 and include subtitles, in that case I will not upload them.
  5. Please make sure the film you want isn’t already available on Youtube, it takes me a lot of time to look and upload each film and to see that it’s already up on YT it ends up being a waste of time so make sure to check before requesting it.

Only 1 request each person per month. Actually, you can post 2 requests but the second one will be used only as a backup in case I don’t have the first one.

Note: in order to keep this section as clean as possible and easy to navigate I will delete the comments after the movies are uploaded, for those films that I don’t have I will also delete your comment but not before adding them to the list of wanted films.

Thanks.

    Whoa! Let me first join the masses in heaping praise on this website! Bloody terrific! I have searched long and far for a place like this that specializes in obscure films, but the ones I have come across are either sketchy or invitation-only, and getting an invitation to those places seems next to impossible, so to find this place is a real boon! And that you take requests and offer streaming is really terrific. !

    Right now I’m looking for Mac (1992) w/ John Turturro and the Nobuhiro Suwa film M/Other (1999).

    Cheers, mate

      Hey Lemmy.
      Thank you very much for your words, I really appreciate it.
      After seeing those type of websites you mention I thought that we needed a site like that but free and easy to access for everyone, that’s why I started with rarefilmm 🙂

      I have those two films that you want, I will be uploading them very soon.

      All the best,
      Jon.

    Hi sir!

    Any chance you can find these two Chantal Akerman movies,

    Histoires d’Amérique (1989)
    Letters Home (1986)

    Or any other rare Akerman for that matter. Thanks!

    • Jon Whitehead
      May 14, 2018

      Hey Austin.
      I have both films but ‘Letters Home’ is in French without subs, I’m guessing you don’t want it if it’s not subbed otherwise tell me and I’ll post a link here, I don’t post non-subbed films in the site but I can just leave a link here if you want, let me know.

      Best,
      Jon.

      • Austin
        May 17, 2018

        That’s great to hear Jon! Sure, if you don’t mind posting a link to “Letters Home” I’d really appreciate that. & does that mean “Histoires d’Amérique” will be uploaded to the site? I really appreciate the response, I’ve been looking for these for forever now!

      Hi Brennan.
      I only have ‘Marie-Louise’ but no eng. subs for it, it’s probably going to take a few months until they are done but once they are ready I’ll post it here.
      If you have other films you are looking for just let me know and see if I can help you.

      Best,
      Jon.

      • May 16, 2018

        Thanks for the help. I will definitely wait for the subtitles on Marie-Louise. Been looking forward to seeing this film for quite some time. I’ll add “Time And Dreams” (1976) Documentary to my requests, please.

    Hello John I’m new to your site but have to say very very impressive. So here’s a challenge: the “Britalian” release “A Tale of Five Cities” (1951) – Bonar Colleano/Gina Lollobrigida/Evar Bartok … the original 86-min UK release please, not the butchered 82-min one that seems the only one generally available and which appears sometimes on TV courtesy of those very nice ladies and gentlemen at Talking Pictures. I heard a rumour that the Italian version is in fact a magnificent 95-mins. However; you’ll probably need to to the Italian Job to get your hands on that! Thanks and intrigued to get your thoughts…

    • Jon W.

      Hi Michael.
      Sorry that I couldn’t give you an answer earlier, I’m very busy with the uploads and trying to keep up with everything that some things I just forget.
      IMDb doesn’t list a different runtime like it does on some movies but it is very possible that the Italian version is longer, I don’t have that version unfortunately, and it seems that the movie hasn’t been released in any form, not even VHS. All I was able to find was that the Italian version was show in the Catholic channel tv2000 3 times in 2014 and once in 2013, it probably hasn’t been shown again on Italian TV since then which is a shame but hopefully it will maybe next year, if they air it again I might be able to ask a friend to capture it.
      Thank you for the support as always, I appreciate it.

      Best,
      Jon.

    Thank you for your hard work. Amazing!

    There are several films with the legendary Jean Gabin which still have never been subtitled into English… All of these titles are available on DVD (or VHS) in Europe, but do not have English subtitles:
    “Gloria” (1933)
    “Varietes” (1935)
    “Le Messager” (1938)
    “Pour l’amour du ciel” (1950)
    “Tonnerre de Dieu” — there are DVD copies circulating, but only in very bad phonetic English (1965)
    “Pour un soir..” (1931)
    “Pour l’amour du ciel” (1950)
    “La Sang a la Tete” (1952)– very bad phonetic English-subtitled version available online
    “Coeurs joyeux” (1933) — I actually own a very good copy of this on a CD-ROM (but it doesn’t have any English subtitles)
    “La Cas du docteur Laurent” (1956)
    “Drapeau noir flotte sur la marmite” (1971)
    “Paris-Beguin” (1931)
    “Chacun sa Chance” (1930)
    “Verdict” (1974) — Jean Gabin and Sophia Loren.

    Thank you!

    Maybe there are some French-speaking rarefilmm fans who can help to subtitle some of them? (( can dare to dream!)

    • John
      August 18, 2018

      For subtitles I find the best site is:

      http://www.opensubtitles.org/ followed by https://subscene.com

      If you can’t find subs in English (or your desired language) or you need to
      resync, adjust or otherwise modify them, I use very good freeware:

      http://www.nikse.dk/subtitleedit

      It will do automatic translations using Google which can range from quite good
      to somewhat comical, but mostly you get the idea. To English, I find transations
      from Portuguese, Spanish and Italian to be quite good. From Romanian not bad,
      from French not so good (I think French is much more idiomatic). From Germanic
      and Scandanavian not bad. In any case, you may not get the subtleties of the
      original, but you will understand what’s going on.

      If you are really desparate, there is a Python script which uses speech to text
      libraries to create a subtitle file directly from the film, then uses
      translation libraries (using Google) to translate them. (this part doesn’t work unless you register for a Google API key, so I use subtitleedit to do the translation as they recommend in the instructions below)
      I’ve tried it and the results are reasonable. It drops some of the dialogue but it does handle a good part of it and will give you an idea of what’s going on. Sometimes the results are pretty good and other times not so much. But it is quick (about 5m) and easy, so give it a try. If the results stink you are no worse off.

    Hi Jon – an amazing run of films lately. Bertrand Tavernier’s fascinating recent documentary on his journey through French cinema caused me to think more than I had before about Claude Sautet and Edmond T Greville in particular.

    Hi Jon,
    Thanks so much for the great site, I love all of the films by great directors which I never would have been able to see otherwise.

    I’m not sure what makes something ineligible for being available for sale, I’d love to request Linton Semage’s “The Outcast”:
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0281025/?ref_=nm_knf_i2
    There was briefly a Region 1 release years ago, but it’s long been out of print and unavailable, so I don’t know if that disqualifies it. I know that Camp de Thiaroye is on the site and it similarly had an OOP New Yorker release, so I wasn’t sure if this case was comparable.

    Thanks so much for all your hard work!

    • Jon W.
      December 7, 2018

      Hi Hiton.
      Thank you for the support I appreciate that a lot.
      I will upload “The Outcast” for you, stay tuned to the new postings.

      Best,

    Hello Jon,
    Firstly, thanks for your invaluable site.

    So you managed Renaldo & Clara! Another that has totally eluded me for over 20 years is The Bell Jar, directed by Larry Peerce.

    Love from London,

      Hi Barton,
      There’s a B&W copy of “The Bell Jar” on Youtube:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oL1lAKA32es
      This is the same copy that I have only that in color, the movement as you will probably notice is not very smooth, I don’t think it’s worth posting it here but if you want I’ll post a link here so you can downoad it, Let me know.

      Best,
      Jon.

      • December 23, 2018

        Hello Jon,
        I’ve only just seen this. Thanks for replying. If you do have a colour version I’d be very interested in seeing it.

    November 1, 2018

    Sorry this isn’t so much a request but a question to Vlad,

    How do you search for movies on ok.ru? I can’t seem to find a way to browse the choices on the site and see what is there. How do you do that?

    • Vlad
      November 2, 2018

      Hi Rob. First, I assume you have created an OK.RU account. If so, there’s really nothing special I do. I search by video, always in “long duration” and for “the entire time”. Oh, sometimes it helps if you remove the films production date and search by title alone if you aren’t getting results. If that does not work, it might take some digging around. It also helps to find channels that upload movies and subscribe to them.

      Hope this helps.

    November 4, 2018

    Hi Jon! I am new to the site as I was looking for (and thanks to you, found) “Storia di Piera” with Hanna Schygulla and Isabelle Huppert. That got me thinking about another Isabelle Huppert film that I saw several years ago on cable called “Navodneniye” (1993) (AKA “The Flood” AKA “L’inondation”) directed by Igor Minaiev. I have searched high and low for it and can’t find it anywhere! I would love to watch it again and I think others on here would like it too.

    • Jon W.
      December 4, 2018

      Hi Julia.
      Welcome to the site! It always makes me very happy when I can help people reunite with films they’ve been waiting years to see them 🙂
      I don’t have that film unfortunately, it seems to be incredibly rare, do you remember which was the channel where you saw it? Are you from Germany by any chance? Maybe we could email the channel if you remember it and they might be able to show it agan sometime (super long shot but still worth asking in my opinion).
      Thanks.

      Best,
      Jon.

    Wow, what a pity! But, do you think that one day you might find a copy of “Antoine et Sébastien”? Anyway, I thank you very much for your effort and your time to search and post these amazing movies!

    Hi Jon,
    So glad you are back! Thanks for all that you do. My request would be for the Nils Malmros film Tree of Knowledge (1981).

    Also, do you have any inside info on these two films by Alf Sjöberg? My understanding is that there is video out there in the ether somewhere but they are as of yet unsubtitled in English.
    Iris and the Lieutenant (1946)
    Only a Mother (1949)

    Best,
    Chris

    • Jon W.
      December 5, 2018

      Hi Chris.
      It’s nice to see you back here after such a long time, I hope you’ve been well my friend.
      I will upload “Tree of Knowledge” for you, no problem.

      About the Sjöberg films, I will try to find someone to start a translation for “Only a mother”, doesn’t look like there’s anyone doing anything to get them done and I think it’s time. About “Iris and the Lieutenant” I found an article that said that there’s legal pending disputes about this film that’s why it can’t be found anywhere.

      Hope to hear again from you soon.

      Best,
      Jon.

    My request:

    A Southern Maid (aka Love Wins Again) (1933/1934) with Bebe Daniels

    More information on film:
    A Southern Maid is a 1933 British musical film directed by Harry Hughes and starring Bebe Daniels, Clifford Mollison and Hal Gordon.[1] It is based on the operetta A Southern Maid by Harold Fraser-Simson. A young Spanish woman marries a lowly Englishman, rather than the aristocrat her father had intended, much to his displeasure. It was part of the cycle of operetta films popular in Britain in the mid-1930s.

    Thank you

    Greetings. Back in the late 1970’s I saw this Brazilian Film in a theater in Mill Valley. The plot was that some evil developer was trying to buy all the real estate in this community to redevelop.The community revolted against this plan. I think boulders were rolled down the hill at cars? After they won the people partied; dancing in the streets. Any excuse, these people partied. After seeing this film, our friends and I would say, Let’s Bahia or party. Does anyone know the name of this masterpiece? or where I can find it with English subtitles?

    For some reason I’ve retained the memory of a very positive review of a film called, (I think,) “Barnardo of the Mountains”, released sometime mid 1990’s. All I remember is that it was a partisan war drama so I’m guessing could be from Yugoslavia, Greece, Italy, etc.. Haven’t been able to find mention anywhere. Also just to reiterrate a request for “Les noces de papier” (The Paper Wedding) 1989 made for television Canadian film directed by Michel Brault with Genevieve Bujold. Thanks for all the wonderful work. Cheers.

        WOW! I had exhausted all other options and lost hope of finding this. I was aware of the Channel 4 screening, but assumed no-one had recorded and saved it. You just made my year!

      Nobody seems to have any information about this movie so I’m assuing it’s lost, it’s so sad that nobody cared to preserve it.

    A request please for “La Guerre est Finie”, Alain Resnais, 1966. I know it’s out there on DVD but I can only find Region 1 US Import DVD or an import with Spanish subtitles. Any chance? (And not just because it’s got Genevieve Bujold again, in a small role.)

    Hi Jon,

    Thank you very much for making this website what it is today. I’ve seen so many great films here and my memories are filled with great times watching all the rare classics many years ago.

    I do have one request. I’ve been looking everywhere for a Japanese film called “Moeru Aki” or “Glowing Autumn”. It was made in 1979 by the famous Japanese director Masaki Kobayashi. I’d very much like to see this film and would be the happiest person if you could find it and upload it.

    Thanks again,

    Hello Jon, I sincerely thank you for this wonderful resource of a website. It’s absolutely great!

    My primary request would be for “L’amour Fou” (1969) by Jacques Rivette. For the life of me I cannot find it to watch anywhere. Secondly, “Class Relations” or “Klassenverhältnisse” (1984) by Straub/Huillet would be my back-up of choice.

    Thanks so much, and all the best.

    Hi, Jon.
    Really? But thanks for the feedback! I am patient and will wait for the post of “Sarah”. Thanks also for the effort in trying to look for another movie. I know it takes time and energy. In the future I’ll ask for another movie.
    Thank you and I also wish you a Merry Christmas and a great New Year with these excellent films,
    Hugs,

      Also, I will probably be able to get “Sarah” before the end of this month but without subs, would that be OK for you or you need the subtitles? Let me know.

      Thank you for the support, Merry Christmas to you as well and happy new year 🙂

    Hi Keith reply 11 Dec
    Glad you have had some help of these links but I have come upon a new way of recording ok ru videos which seems to work always. If you use Firefox and has Videodownloader as an add on it will never work or download if you play ok ru videos directly.However if you put the letter m. in front of the web address as an example (https://ok.ru/video/1250315930254 just put m. in front https://m.ok.ru/video/1250315930254 and then click enter a new page upons up with the video and then if you click on the video the videodownloader will work and download normally. I have no idea why this work but found this tip somewhere in cyberspace

    Up From The Beach (1965)

    I have never found an official release of this movie. It may be owned by Turner Classic Movies. I am not sure but it is on their website but not available. There are people who have done DVD-R, but I’m sure it’s not an official release and they say the quality is poor.

    The movie takes place the day after the movie The Longest Day. This was the follow-up movie. With some of the same actors.

      https://ok.ru/video/542453729913 this is the only French original language found but unfortunately there are Turkish subtitles on the English hard sub. BTW the best search engine for videos on ok ru is in fact the English version of Yandex instead of Google. You Tube is owned by Google and it is not surprising that ok ru which is a serious competitor for the best classical film site is not showing up when you use the Google search engine for ok ru videos.
