A dramatic history of Aisin-Gioro "Henry" Pu Yi, who at the age of three became the last of the Emperors of China. Chronicles his lofty birth and brief reign in the Forbidden City, as the object of worship by half a billion people; through his abdication, his decline and dissolute lifestyle; and his exploitation by the invading Japanese as the ruler of Manchukuo from 1932 to 1945.

Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence by Nagisa Ōshima( Visual )

In a Japanese prison camp on Java in 1942, two British officers, John Lawrence and Jack Celliers, encounter camp commander Yonoi and his sergeant Hara. Things had been going pretty well, until charismatic, rebellious Celliers arrived. Yonoi is a devotee of the samurai ideal; neither he nor Hara can understand the stoic way in which the British prisoners accept their situation of defeat. Lawrence speaks Japanese, and ceaselessly tries to mediate between the prisoners and their overseers, translating both the words and the values of the two races. Celliers' attitude, however, is more comprehensible to Yonoi. He and Celliers arrive at a sort of détente, based on an admiration for the other, but this eventually turns into a contest of wills as the camp's carefully nurtured equilibrium is destroyed

"In the not-so-distant future, strong-willed and beautiful Kate (Richardson) possesses a precious commodity that most women have lost and most men want to control ... fertility. Forced into a brain-washing bootcamp that turns fertile women into surrogate mothers for social-elite men and their infertile wives, Kate thinks she's made out well when she's assigned to an eminent party leader (Duvall). But when she learns that he's sterile, she's faced with the impossible choice: produce him an heir or die!"--Conteneur
Derrida( Visual )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An odd portrait of Jacques Derrida, one of the most polemical and influential theorists of the end of the 20th century. The filmmakers 'deconstruct' the French thinker's private and professional life, in an attempt to capture the processes of an inquisitive and iconoclastic mind which has greatly influenced our way of understanding the limits of language."--Festival

Playing the piano by Ryūichi Sakamoto( )

21 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein Solo-Pianoalbum des herausragenden japanischen Pianisten Ryuichi Sakamoto. Der umtriebige Musiker war Teil des Yellow Magic Orchestra, das als sehr einflussreiche Gruppe in etwa mit Kraftwerk in Europa vergleichbar ist. Sakamoto ist ein Multitalent, das sich im Avantgarde-Pop, in der Neo-Klassik, bei Kunstperformances und im Jazz gleichermassen heimisch fühlt. Ausserdem ist er ein sehr gefragter Filmmusikkomponist (Der letzte Kaiser, Babel u.v.a.). äDer ganze Duktus dieses Piano-Albums ist so sensibel und leise, dass man schnell dazu übergeht, die Musik als Hintergrund zu sehen. Das ist natürlich gemein. Aber der jazzige Ansatz vieler Songs ... den Sakamoto mit seinen Kenntnissen über die meditativen Wiederholungsstrukturen der Minimal Music kombiniert, versetzen den Hörer an eine Hotelbar. Sakamotos Affinität zu Romantikern wie Chopin und Postromantikern und Impressionisten wie Debussy oder Satie verleiten zum sanften Abdriften in Träume über Nebel, Herbst, Wasser oder andere romantische Bilder. Auf seiner Tournee wird sein Pianospiel sicher intim und reizvoll seinä (www.monstersandcritics.de)
