An expatriate White Russian general sets in motion a grand hoax after he meets a destitute woman on the banks of the Seine River in Paris.

Peau d'ane = Donkey skin by Jacques Demy( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in French and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on a story by Charles Perrault, Donkey skin takes place in an amorphous medieval kingdom of a king (Jean Marais), his queen, and their beautiful daughter, the princess (Catherine Deneuve). When the queen dies, the king takes an oath that he will only marry a woman more beautiful than she. Unable to find such a woman, the king settles upon the unlikely candidate of his daughter. In horror the princess flees, helped by her sassy fairy godmother (Delphine Seyrig). Mystical, surreal, and fantastical events as well as several musical numbers by Demy's longtime collaborator, Michel Legrand, lead the princess to flee the castle in the skin of her father's favorite donkey (it had bowel movements of jewels and gold). Her new existence as a filthy scullion named "Donkey Skin" is thankless and sad, and the princess longs for love. When a neighboring Prince comes to town a romance is born, and proceedings of epic fairy tale proportions lead the prince and the former princess "Donkey Skin" together, bringing this extravagantly filmed, whimsical and decorative tale full circle

L'anno scorso a Marienbad by Alain Resnais( Visual )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in Italian and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In un sontuoso albergo (in origine, una principesca villa di campagna) durante una serata teatrale, un uomo incontra una donna e si sforza di persuaderla a ricordare un'antica promessa: un anno prima, a Marienbad, ella s'era riproposta di partire insieme con lui. Nei saloni dell'albergo, nel parco, nella stessa camera della donna, l'uomo sarà sempre presente, persuasivo, inquietante. Il film si snoda ora al presente, ora al passato, ora al futuro, ricorrendo insistentemente al tema della protagonista che lotta contro un ricordo di cui non è sicura, o che cerca di respingere, o che desidera. Un altro uomo - il marito o l'amante - cerca di trattenerla un istante: ma senza aver dato una risposta definitiva, la donna si dilegua nel labirinto del vasto giardino all'italiana, dove lo stesso corteggiatore non è sicuro di ritrovarla
