Requests (now open!)

Hey y’all,

Feel free to write in the comments below which movies you would like me to add on the site.

Remember I can’t just upload any movie, there’s a number of “rules” that I need you guys to follow in order to “green light” a film, they are the following:

  1. No Region 1 DVD/Bluray of the said film is available to purchase online, if the movie that you want was released on DVD at some point but it’s currently out of print you can still request it but make sure to check not only Amazon but also eBay and see how many copies are out there for purchase, if you are unsure you can request it and I’ll give you an answer.
  2. For British films only make sure the film isn’t available on Region 2 DVD otherwise I will not upload it.
  3. The movie was released before the year 2006 (2005 is the limit).
  4. For foreign films I will only upload titles that are not available on Region 1 DVD, if the movie was released on DVD or Bluray but only in the film’s country of origin and without English subtitles then you can request it, if there is a Region 2/B release for such film with subtitles make sure it’s region locked (should say on the back) and not region free (AKA Region 0), in those cases I will not upload them.
  5. Also, make sure the film you want isn’t already available on Youtube (or if it is there it has to be a low quality copy), it takes me a lot of time to look for and upload each film and to end up seeing that it’s already up on YT it ends up being a waste of time so please check before requesting it here. Also, check out the WANTED films list, if the movie you’re looking for is listed there it means I don’t have it.
  6. NEW Last and probably most important rule, I will NOT be uploading films where any of the studios mentioned up next have been involved in the production and/or distribution of the requested film: NBCUniversal and all its subsidiaries, WarnerMedia (including everything from the pre-May 1986 MGM library), TNTHBOTurner Entertainment Networks, RKO Radio Pictures, Monogram Pictures, Cannon Group, Milestone Films, Castle Rock Entertainment, Orion Pictures, Lorimar, Gaumont, Pathé & StudioCanal (including Canal+, StudioCanal UK and Arthaus). For this you can check sites like IMDb specifically in the “Company Credits” part, click on “See More” and it will show you the production and distribution companies involved in the film, if you are unsure you can always ask and I will tell you yes or no.

This last rule I just added I’m a bit bummed about it not gonna lie I hate having to do this and believe me I would love to be able to upload as many movies as possible for you guys but after all the issues and complaints this year that forced me to take the site offline I have no choice, I don’t even know if this will be enough for the copyright trolls to leave me alone to be honest but I’ve run out of ideas so please, if you’d like to see rarefilmm stay online I ask you dearly to follow the rules, let’s hope for the best, I think we will be fine from now on, fingers crossed!

1 request per user please, you may include a second film as an alternative if you think I might not have the first one.

Thanks.
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!)

      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.

    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.

    Don’t know the title about this one, maybe you can help: I am looking for a movie about a couple on the run after having committed a crime. One scene takes place on a deserted beach. The guy gets shot (by mob hitmen?) standing by the sea, while his long-haired brunette girlfriend watches from afar, sitting in the dunes. The bullets make an eerie sound on the quiet beach. The guy falls down and the waves wash over his body. I think it is a French movie, maybe Spanish, definitely European. Probably 1990s. Thanks in advance.

I think the movie I’m looking for the hardest is Kidlat Tahimik’s “Who Invented the Yo-Yo? Who Invented the Moon Buggy?” As an alternative, based on the fact that you previously uploaded Before the Truth, I hope you have more Vojislav Rakonjac films available, mostly Zazidani (The Walled In).

    Nice to see you back! My request, and this might be an odd choice, but the 1993 Super Mario Bros movie has to be it. It is literally not available on any streaming service. It’s not available to rent on YouTube, there is no Region A Blu-Ray (there is a Region B, but it’s unplayable in USA), and the film is not owned by any of your listed studios. It was produced by Hollywood Pictures & Lightmotive.

        No ‘James’ you obviously have no idea what you are talking about, and don’t make remarks that show how limited your knowledge is, you only embarrass yourself ……What Jon has available on Rarefilmm is the MOVIE RELEASE….People Next Door (1970)….what I am looking is the following:

        THE PEOPLE NEXT DOOR (1968) CBS PLAYHOUSE….LLOYD BRIDGES, ROBERT DUVALL, PETER GALMAN, KIM HUNTER, PHYLLIS NeWMAN, NEHEMIAH PERSOFF…Directed by David Greene….originally Broadcast October 15, 1968…I believe UCLA may have Archived what I am looking for amongst other Episodes of CBS Playhouse.

    It has come to my attention that a rip of the 1985 documentary Yama – Attack to Attack has shown up in some circles online. It’s about labour protestors in Japanese cities and it resulted in both of the film’s directors being murdered for their art.

    I would like to humbly request this film, as it sounds like an important and underseen work that should probably be made more available. I imagine that’s what the filmmakers would have wanted.

    Thank you.

    Welcome back! It’s so good to see you back providing such rare gems to people, like myself, who has a difficult time getting them because either they don’t show them on tv anymore, they aren’t available on DVD, or worse yet, they aren’t in their region, and speaking of such.

    I am looking for a movie if you have it, or if you can possibly get it. The movie is called The Journalist-https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079374/ . It’s a 1979 Australian movie staring Sam Neill in it.

    It’s only available in a region 4, to purchase, and on Vimeo, you can only get it if you are in Australia, or New Zealand. I’m in the USA with a region 1 DVD player. The movie is produced by Umbrella Entertainment, so I don’t know if that’s going to be a problem, or not for you.

    Anyways, if you can get it, it would be greatly appreciated. Again, thank you so much for providing such rare movies which would otherwise be lost in the mists of time. Thank you.

    Hello I never made any requests here before but I’m looking for various Colombian films. I’m from there and can speak spanish so I don’t need any subtitles in fact it be better without any cause it can get distracting. Anyway I have found many on youtube but there’s still many I can’t find or are on there in extremely bad quality or dubbed in english.

    The following films are the ones I’m looking for mind you all the titles are in spanish if you need an wiki or imdb page I’ll try and help you out with links to any but anyway here goes: Canaguaro 1981 (on youtube but horrible quality), La agonia del difunto 1981, El dia de las Mercedes 1985, Mariposas S.A. 1986, Milagro en Roma 1989, Con su musica a otra Parte 1983, Funeral siniestro 1977, Area maldita 1979, 27 horas con la muerte 1981, Triángulo de oro aka La isla fantasma 1984, Extraña regresión 1985 (this one is on youtube but dubbed in english), La boda del acordeonista 1986 (sometimes label as 1)coming out im 1985 or 1988), Técnicas de Duelo 1988 (on youtube but terrible quality), Pasado el meridiano 1967, Bolivar so Yo 2002 (on youtube bad quality), El embajador de la India 1986, Golpe de estadio 1998, Te Busco 2002, Todo está oscuro 1997, De amores y delitos: Amores ilícitos 1995, Ayer me echaron del pueblo 1982, El taxista millonario 1979, Un hombre y una mujer con suerte 1988, Caín 1984, Colombia Connection 1979, Pisingaña 1986 (on youtube horrible quality), and Los niños invisibles 2001.

    Sorry I asked for so many I just thought I’d take the advantage to ask as many as possible since the first time I found this site it was taken down 3 weeks later. Hopefully you can eventually find all of them. Oh by the way some of these are on youtube but not blocked in my counrty and I used a vpn and went through 40 countries but no luck with any of them but if they are in yours please let me know to see if my vpn will work if I set it to you country.

    Last but not least I want to thank you for this site and for all the uploads you do. Right now I do not have any financial way to show my appreciation and I don’t when I will have any but if I ever do I will donate as much possible to make sure this site stay up.

    THE DARWIN ADVENTURE (1972) starring Nicholas Clay. I doubt there’s much chance of finding this, as it seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth! I’ve spent several years fruitlessly searching for it.. But I thought I’d post it on the off chance!

    Welcome back, Jon! Thrilled to see you back. I’m looking for 1985’s Twice in a Lifetime. For a relatively recent Oscar-nominated film, it seems to have virtually vanished. All I can find is a very poor quality, foreign subtitled pan and scan VHS dub. I’d love to be able to see a nice print of this. Thank you!

    * Anything nominated for the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film or Best Live Action Short Film that you don’t already have.

    For a more possible option I’ve also been on the hunt for Doris Totten Chase’s “A Dancer” which was on TV in 1988 and did once get a VHS release but I’ve never found it!

    My request is WAMPYR (1978): This is the italian version of George Romero’s MARTIN which features music by GOBLIN and is edited in a different way. It does exist with english subs. It was part of a multi-disc-edition which is now out of print.

    Hi! Since you were so kind as to post ISABEL, I was wondering if you had a line on another film by Paul Almond, 1970’s ACT OF THE HEART, which starred Genevieve Bujold (his wife at the time, lucky duck) and Donald Sutherland. Also, while this isn’t especially specific, it seems a lot of Luis Bunuel’s Mexican films are very hard to find these days in subtitled form, and I think practically any of them would be a welcome and valuable addition to the site. Thanks again for your excellent work with Rarefilmm!

    I would love to see Storm De Hirsch’s only feature ‘Goodbye in the Mirror’ (1964). I missed a screening at Brighton Cinematheque in the 2000’s and more recently at Close-Up (I reckon the only UK screenings in 20 years). Thanks for the site – great work!

    Just found your amazing site. I would love to see The Reward (1965) with the late, peerless Max von Sydow. Production Co: Arcola Pictures, Distributed by twentieth Century Fox, release date: 15 September, 1965. Have looked extensively online, the only dvd offered is 66 minutes (the original film runs 92 minutes). English subtitles would be wonderful, as a large part of the dialogue is in Spanish, but apparently the context still allows the story to unfold for those who don’t understand Spanish.

    Chronicle of the Years of Fire (1975) (original title: Ahdat sanawovach el-djamr), directed by Mohammed Lakhdar-Hamina. Landmark Algerian film, is the first and to date, only film from any African country to win the prestigious Palm D’Or. As far as I can tell, it’s never received a region 1 DVD release let alone a Blu-ray release, nor is it available in the digital realm (at least with English subtitles) outside of a low quality YouTube posting that looks like video camera footage of a TV airing of the movie (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6MuVXQ9jWk&t=152s). It was recently restored by The Film Foundation’s World Cinema Project and can be selected for screening at a theater. But other than that, it still can’t be easily seen and remains the rarest and hardest to see of all the Palm D’or winners.

    I would like a widescreen HD version of Bertolucci’s The Sheltering Sky. The commercial LQ 4:3 version of the film, which I bought, is a disgrace to its imagery, which is evident to anyone who saw the beautiful Arabic/Middle East scenery in the cinemas. Last time I checked, there was no proper copy of the film available for sale.

    I’m terribly sorry for not remembering my second choice right now, so if my faltering mind will let me remember it, I am going to take the liberty to post another comment regarding that one. After all, there is so much good stuff out there, that isn’t out there.

    Both of those are early Bruce Lee movies. Thunderstorm in particular is based on a popular play.
    Also, could you find the original Korean version of Yonggary 1999? That one’s probably long lost, but I wanted to try at least.

    Hi, I would love if you could add “Bawdy Tales” (AKA “Storie Scellarate”), a 1973 film directed by Sergio Citti and overseen and written by Pier Paolo Pasolini. Alberto Grimaldi produced. It is not on video ANYWHERE, much less Region 1. I have asked a number of U.S. boutique labels about releasing it, and their answer is always, ‘We aren’t interested’. I would love to get it on the site here. Also, as a backup, I’d also like to get Sergio Citti’s “Casotto” (Beach House), with Jodie Foster, from 1976, on here. Thank you for your time.

    Recently discovered Rarefilmm and I’m amazed by the range of films here – thank you! I would love to be able to see (any of) the following 1950s films with English subtitles – to the best of my knowledge they’re not available as R1 DVD or Bluray releases. They’re classic European films (melodramas, comedies, noirs) that deserve to be better known:

    Calle Mayor (Juan Antonio Bardem, 1956 Spain)
    El ultimo caballo (Edgar Neville, 1950 Spain)
    La vida por delante (Fernando Fernan Gomez, 1958 Spain)
    Voici le temps des assassins (Julien Duvivier 1956 France)
    Poveri Milionari (Dino Risi, 1959 Italy)

    Also very interesting, if you can find them:
    Rendez-vous de Juillet (Jacques Becquer, 1949 France)
    Mi tio Jacinto (Ladislao Vajda, 1956 Spain)
    Los peces rojos (Jose Antonio Nieves Conde, 1955 Spain)

    If you could find Theodore J. Flicker’s “The Troublemaker” (1964), I’d love to see it again. Although it’s been panned, it’s notable in that many people who were involved in it, such as the director and also Buck Henry, went on to do great things. Also, Godfrey Cambridge is wonderful as an Irish policeman, and there’s a hilarious uncredited silent cameo by Tiny Tim.

    The film documentary ‘Negative Space’ by Chris Petit seems to have vanished from the face of the earth, and since it deals with film criticism, it’d be good to see.

    And also, the work of Axel Corti is decidedly underseen, other than The King’s Whore. There is only one subtitled film of his on YouTube, (though it is a good one) Young Freud:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NwK-U636Roo

    Hi Jon,
    I’ve been trying to track down a 1998 mockumentary called The Thin Pink Line for some time. It’s a gay parody of The Thin Blue Line, and it features an incredible cast of comedic talent, including some of Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer’s earliest film appearances. As far as I can tell based on my own attempts to find it, its only home media release was a DVD in Japan some time in the mid-noughties. Otherwise, I can find no trace of it. If you were able to track it down, I think it could be a wonderful addition to the story of nineties alternative comedy.

    Hi Jon

    Thank you so much for this wonderful library… my thing is Japanese film, particularly 1945 to 1975 and you have titles here I’ve not found elsewhere. And better copies of some I already have. So, my request… just the one:

    Rokujo Yukiyama Tsumgi (Dark the Mountain Snow), Zenzo Matsuyama, 1966

      Hi Brian,
      I too am into Japanese films mostly 1945 to 1965. Never heard of Rokujo Yukiyama Tsumgi (Dark the Mountain Snow), Zenzo Matsuyama, 1966 – thanks for mentioning it.

    Hi Jon,
    Can you find the movie MEN… (Mannen…) by Doris Dorrie? I can’t seem to find it anywhere with English subtitles. Thanks!

    Greetings,
    I wonder if you might be able to find a scarce Canadian film called, Yes, Sir! Madame… by Robert Morin. I saw it once 20 years ago and I’ve never forgotten it, but I’ve never been able to find it.

    Hi Jon, glad to see you back! Do you have “The Sea and the Poison” or any other Kei Kumai films? I see you have 2 on the site already, but I’m a big fan of his work.
    Another request is Shinji Somai’s “Luminous Woman.”

    Cheers!

    Great to see this site again, welcome back! I’m after a copy of

    Strike Me Lucky (1934).

    There have been no commercial releases of the film that I am aware of. However, I know prints were transferred to VHS back in the late 80s/early 90s for film aficionados (that’s the only time I’ve seen it). Given the calibre of people on this site, there’s a good chance one of them has a copy… thank you.

    Thanks very much for this site. Some wonderful Japanese films I had not seen before.
    Looking for Tomu Uchida’s MORI TO MIZUUMI NO MATSURI 森と湖のまつり (The Outsiders / Festival of Lakes and Forests) (1958). I know there was at one time an R2 version Japanese with no subtitles.

    As a backup Koreyoshi Kurahara’s THE WOMAN FROM THE SEA (海底から来た女 Kaitei kara kita onna, 1959). I was living in Japan at the time and caught the 2008 Tokyo Filmex retrospective which showed 12 of Kurahara’s films. Some of those shown were later released in R1 with subtitles in a set titled The Warped World of Koreyoshi Kurahara. Unfortunately, THE WOMAN FROM THE SEA was not one of them – it especially would have fit better given the title of that set. It is about a young man who becomes infatuated with a beautiful young woman who can transform herself into a shark, in which guise she terrorizes the fishing village where the young man is vacationing. Some great underwater filming

    1993 indie Risk with the great Karen Silias from What Happened Was, Hal Harley films. I saw on VHS back in the day and I think that’s all she wrote, seems to have disappeared. Gritty, messy NYC relationship drama, not perfect but compelling enough, deserves to resurface if only for Silias. Thanks
