Heads up to French-speaking Intactivists:
Otac na sluzbenom putu [When Father Was Away On Business] (1985)http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089748/
Airs tonight at 9PM (Eastern) on TFO, the French language provincial public broadcaster.
The boys' mother is obsessed w/ cleanliness and gets the 6-year-old boy and his 12-year-old brother circumcised. While only fictional, this movie is quite graphic in the close-up shots of what they show. The boys even privately joke to each other that their mother probably cleans their father penis w/ Spic-And-Span.
3 key scenes:
- The mother goes to a doctor (might be her brother or brother-in-law) about having the boys circumcised.
- The family and the boys prepare for their circumcision by their uncle, a butcher. In the kitchen is the grief-stricken mother and the family sitting around the table. An adult jokes when he was circumcised, they had enough left to make a coat. In the bedroom, the boys are awaiting their fate. An extreme close-up of the boys genitals are shown with the uncle's hand putting the shield against his penis. You hear the boy scream as the camera quickly pans up to the boys screaming mouth. Next scene has boys recovering from their circ being told they're "brave" boys and given presents.
- (way) Later in the movie, the little boy takes a bath w/ a girl. The 2 sit in the bathtub and splash around, as they settle down and she looks down between his legs to notice he's circumcised (another extreme close-up). He proceeds to tell her that his [slang for uncle] circumcised him. She says she knows and said it's done by the Jews as well. She asks him what a [slang for uncle] is and he tells her it's his uncle a butcher. She tells him it's better when done by a doctor.
This boy MUST have gotten circumcised for the part in the movie, because: The boy is CLEARLY intact during the circumcision scene and the camera pans up to his face (all one shot). Later in the movie, he stands in the bathtub, pulls his underwear down and he's circ'd and the extreme close-up of the boys circumcised penis between his legs involves a pan up to his face (all 1 shot)... and his foreskin-- to me-- DOESN'T look retracted.http://www.tfo.org/
