is studying English with other pupils on the English shore at Herne Bay, Kent. The lads, on the other
hand, are less interested in learning and prefer to spend their time in amusement arcades with English
girls. Julien also has a buddy named Janet, with whom he goes to the movies and walks on the pier. He
quickly learns, however, that she is in love with an older French boy named Jean-Pierre, not with him.

that they no longer need Janet to go about the beach.

Torzók, also known as Abandoned is set in a 1960s Hungarian orphanage, thus almost everyone who watches it is unfamiliar with the subject and locale.

Slowly building bonds with the few allies he can find, including another youngster, Attila, and two orphanage staff, Aron and his circle rely on one another to survive the orphanage's and their country's awful conditions, both of which have been wrecked by communism's spread.

“The DMZ (1965)” is possibly the best 1960s film I've ever watched, telling the narrative of two children who try to be children in the center of a minefield while they explore the Korean border. After the signing of the Korean War armistice in the summer of 1953, a young boy and a little girl find themselves in no man's land. Because the two are merely children, they have no idea that they are in the "DMZ" or what the DMZ is; all they know is that they are alone and in danger. Skeletons and decomposing bodies, as well as abandoned tanks, overturned trucks, damaged railroads, and rusted equipment, are common sights. There are no other people around, and nature has begun to reclaim the land — wild dogs and foxes pose a threat, and little girl subsequently becomes separated from her brother after following a cute bunny into a woodland grove and being unable to find her way back.

The Brazilian movie “O MEU PÉ DE LARANJA LIMA” (1970) is about Zezé - a poor six-year-old boy, intelligent, sensitive, and needy. He is a sad, toy-less child who, one day, in one of his backyard games, ends up making a lime orange tree his greatest confidant. Lacking an affection, he doesn't find it in his family – no one has much patience for him. The devilish little boy goes out on the streets to do a thousand mischief. He learns everything himself; he is the “discoverer of things”. When the family moves into a house where are lots of trees in the yard, each brother chooses one for himself – one gets the mango tree, another gets the tamarind tree, and so on. Zezé is left with a small lime orange tree. However, this tree is so friendly that they talk a lot and even play together. Zezé invents for himself a fantasy world in which the great confidant is Minguinho, the lime orange tree.
This film is the first adaptation of the great book “MEU PÉ DE LARANJA LIMA” about childhood, written by José Mauro de Vasconcelos and published in 1968, just two years before the movie was created. It seems that this movie is very true to the novel, which is generally positive. Children are really cute. The end is indeed moving.
