62 editions published between 1967 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 989 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A hired killer in a state of virtual living death goes about his business in a muted Paris, a city of shadows, only to fatally admit emotion (the love of a woman) into his life. His actions are analogous to hara-kiri committed by the solitary samurai. Melville takes the mythology of the gangster and removes all overt social comment in favour of romantic stylisation. Melville commented that his intention was "to show the mental disorder of a man who unmistakably had a tendency to schizophrenia."

The drama unfolds in a series of episodes merging into each other in which each of the five sons moves in turn to occupy the centre of the stage.

The girl on a motorcycle by Jack Cardiff( Visual )

14 editions published between 1968 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A wildly sexy time capsule from the swinging sixties, The girl on a motorcycle (1968) stars Alain Delon (Le samoura) and Marianne Faithfull, two actors at the height of their impressive cool, as lovers with a taste for the open road. Faithfull stars as Rebecca, a bored housewife who bolts from her home in the French countryside to visit her lover, Daniel (Delon), in Germany. Wearing nothing but a form-fitting black leather suit (the film was re-released in the U.S. as Naked under leather), the lusty Rebecca races across the country, and in flashback remembers the start of their affair. She recalls the initial, furtive glances in her father's bookstore, her elaborate sexual fantasies and their long-awaited consummation. Most important of all is the motorcycle itself, a gift from Daniel that seems to give her more pleasure than any man could deliver. Directed by legendary cinematographer Jack Cardiff (The red shoes) in pulsating psychedelic hues, The girl on a motorcycle has emerged from obscurity to become more than a cult favorite; it is a touchstone film of 1960s Euro youth culture
