La meglio gioventù = The best of youth by Marco Tullio Giordana( Visual )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in Italian and English and held by 748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film is about the members of an ordinary, modern Italian family, in love, at work, at one another's sides and on one another's nerves. The lives of the two brothers at the center of the story, Matteo and Nicola, tell a tale of youthful baby-boomer idealism, rebelliousness, and disillusionment, followed by the mellowing of middle age. Qualified as a doctor, Nicola embodies '60s restlessness, as he becomes a woodworker. Diffident literature student Matteo becomes a soldier, then a policeman and detective. Their lives unfold as threads in the larger historical tapestry, wherein events such as the Florence floods of 1966, workers' uprisings in Turin a few years later, the Red Brigades terrorism of the 1970s, and the Mafia trials of the 1990s occur and affect them. Though their lives follow wildly divergent paths the brothers remain close, and their decisions figure strongly in determining each other's futures. The film presents a fascinating study of the ways in which people continue to grow after they have become adults

Little Salvatore, known to all as Toto, is fascinated by the movies and befriended by projectionist Alfredo. Toto becomes Alfredo's apprentice, which nurtures his love for cinema. The Cinema Paradiso is the center of village life, despite the depredations of Father Adelfio, who censors all of the films, indicating where to cut--at every kissing scene--by ringing a small bell. After a fire blinds Alfredo, Toto becomes the projectionist. As Toto grows older, his gaze switches from the flickering images on the screen to pretty classmate, but they are separated when Toto is drafted into the military. Thirty years later Salvatore, now a successful filmmaker in Rome, learns that Alfredo has died. His return to the small Sicilian village of his childhood unleashes a flood of memory, of a love as fleeting as those forbidden, excised kisses
Saraband by Ingmar Bergman( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in Swedish and held by 581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Saraband is a revisitation to 1973's Scenes From a Marriage, as thirty-odd years have passed in the lives of former husband and wife Johan and Marianne. An inner prompting has sent Marianne to visit Johan in his ramshackle but finely appointed house in the middle of the forest, where she becomes a sounding board for the emotional wreckage she encounters there: Henrik (Johan's 61-year-old son) and Henrik's 19-year-old daughter, Karin. Henrik and Karin are musicians, both locked in grief over the death of wife and mother Anna two years earlier. Infused with the unsentimental, gentle humor of distanced perspective and thoughtful reflection, this is another of Bergman's provocative expositions into the most fundamental human need: connection
