L'armée des ombres = Army of shadows by Jean-Pierre Melville( Visual )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in French and English and held by 857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'Armee des Ombres is a stark and unvarnished story about Resistance fighters in Vichy France in 1942-43 when the French leadership allowed the Nazis to occupy the country. The members of this army are cold, hungry, desperate men and women, with false names and no addresses, who can be betrayed in an instant by a traitor or an accident. They know they will probably die. A meditation on the nature of resistance and the price of courage, these heroes can save their own country only by cutting themselves apart from it. Entangled in the political turmoil engulfing France in the wake of May '68--as a result received poorly there--the film was not distributed in the US until 2006
La ronde by Max Ophuls( Visual )

78 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La ronde translates as 'The round' which can refer to the policeman's beat, a circle of dancers, or a carousel, all of which this circular collection of interconnected short stories resembles. Each scene is built around a specific pair, and when one member of the pair breaks away from his or her lover, he or she then moves on to the next, introducing the partner that will lead on to the next pair, and so on until we are back where we started. Many of these lovers are seeking something they've lost in arms that look familiar but that belong to strangers. La ronde is the bittersweet note sounded by the circular nostalgia of the heart

Adieu, Volodya : a novel by Simone Signoret( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This novel by the celebrated French actress, published here posthumously, follows the fortunes of some Jewish emigre families. Set in Paris between the world wars, her story is of people who find ways to survive both the memories of past persecution in Eastern Europe and the threats of Nazism on the rise in France. Numerous characters, most connected with the garment and theater industries, are brought in, but only Nicole, the nouveau riche neurotic who has created both a new identity and a new past for herself, seems to be flesh and blood. The others, despite some lively dialogue, are two-dimensional and unreal. But a sense of the era does emerge, with political events skillfully interwoven. --Laurie Spector Sullivan, Library Journal
