Open city( Visual )

13 editions published between 1945 and 2009 in Italian and English and held by 773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shot in the still war-torn streets of Rome shortly after the Nazi withdrawal, Roberto Rossellini's Open City is considered his greatest work. Shot on scavenged ends of film, this classic war saga in which members of the Italian resistance try to smuggle badly needed cash out of Nazi-occupied Rome, helped define Italian neorealism. It was so real in fact, that audiences were convinced the actors were amateurs and, even though Federico Fellini has a writing credit, the film was improvised

A prostitute's attempt to escape the clutches of her brutal pimp end in tragedy for her teenage son.

He is ever alert to the incongruous features of a world where petit bourgeois piety rubs up against the amoral innocent violence of the underclass

Stage & spectacle : three films by Jean Renoir( Visual )

3 editions published in 2004 in French and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Near the end of his long and celebrated career, master filmmaker Jean Renoir indulged his lifelong obsession with life-as-theater and in rapid succession directed The golden coach (1953), French cancan (1955), and Elena and her men (1956), three delirious films infatuated with the past, love, and artifice.
