L'histoire d'Adèle H. = The story of Adele H. by François Truffaut( Visual )

61 editions published between 1975 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 777 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A laserdisc version of Truffaut's film about a woman who realises herself in self destruction, a story of unrequited love based on the actual journals written in code by the daughter of Victor Hugo who refers to herself only as Adele H. Beginning in 1863 Adele pursues an English lieutenant to Nova Scotia and Barbados. Truffaut's idea was to make a film with a maximum of inner violence about love involving only one person. The object of her love is worthless and Adele recognises him as such. Adele's obsession is with the emotion of love itself, l'amour fou which radically draws her to a refusal of identity on the outer limits of society. Truffaut called his film 'a musical composition for one instrument' and his single minded focus on Adjani as Adele carries us to 'a larger view of the notion of neurotically willed romanticism.' Kael recognises that The Story of Adele H. is, in a strange way, 'deeply, disharmoniously funny'

A fascinating psychological study and a socio-critical investigation. Sonia Bergerac is a teacher at a tough junior high.

Scared and taking antidepressants, Sonia finds a gun in a bag belonging to one of her students, a local hoodlum and gangbanger. In the struggle to reclaim his weapon from her, she accidentally wounds him. When he and his fellow gangsters then threaten her life and the life of the other students, she breaks, taking some of her students hostage so she can finally teach a proper lesson on Molière.
