Zazie dans le métro by Louis Malle( Visual )

45 editions published between 1959 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zazie is an energetic, saucy little girl from the suburbs who comes to Paris with her mother Jeanne for the weekend. Jeanne has an urgent appointment with her lover, so Uncle Gabby will be looking after Zazie. Zazie particularly wants to ride the Metro--the subway--but the train staff is on strike. So after the obligatory sightseeing trip to the Eiffel Tower, Zazie loses her uncle and embarks on a series of madcap, rather Rabelaisian adventures. While visually borrowing from silent films and cartoons, there is quite a lot of humor, social satire, cultural and linguistic commentary (drawn directly from the novel) that is incomprehensible without a thorough knowledge of French history and culture in the post-war period. To the average American viewer, it is best approached as a surrealistic, farcical slice of French life and enjoyed accordingly

La Pointe-Courte by Agnès Varda( Visual )

The great Agnes Varda's film career began with this graceful, penetrating study of a marriage on the rocks, set against the backdrop of a small Mediterranean fishing village. Both a stylized depiction of the complicated relationship between a married couple and a documentary-like look at the daily struggles of the locals, Varda's discursive, gorgeously filmed debut was radical enough to later be considered one of the progenitors of the coming French new wave
