A French colony in Africa's Ivory Coast discovers months after the fact that World War I has begun. Spurred on by a capricious patriotism, they figure they'll do their part by attacking the German colony up the river. After all, they have six rifles, and one of them is an automatic. So off to war they march-- or rather, their servants do, carrying the white folk on palanquins. They soon stop for a lovely picnic. When machine gun fire is heard in the distance, they run back to the safety of the colony. All goes well until a young geographer becomes the key strategist for the French, working with the local tribal chief and turning the old colonial social hierarchy on its head
Zazie dans le métro( Visual )

5 editions published between 1960 and 2011 in French and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zazie is an energetic, saucy little girl from the suburbs who comes to Paris with her mother Jeanne for the weekend. Jeanne has an urgent appointment with her lover, so Uncle Gabby will be looking after Zazie. Zazie particularly wants to ride the Metro--the subway--but the train staff is on strike. So after the obligatory sightseeing trip to the Eiffel Tower, Zazie loses her uncle and embarks on a series of madcap, rather Rabelaisian adventures. While visually borrowing from silent films and cartoons, there is quite a lot of humor, social satire, cultural and linguistic commentary (drawn directly from the novel) that is incomprehensible without a thorough knowledge of French history and culture in the post-war period. To the average American viewer, it is best approached as a surrealistic, farcical slice of French life and enjoyed accordingly

It is 1850 in the beautiful, perfectly-kept town of Wismar. Jonathan Harker is about to leave on a long journey over the Carpathian Mountains to finalize real estate arrangements with a wealthy nobleman. His wife, Lucy, begs him not to go and is troubled by a strong premonition of danger. Despite her warnings, Jonathan arrives four weeks later at a large, gloomy castle. Out of the mist appears a pale, wraith-like figure with a shaven head and deep-sunken eyes who identifies himself as Count Dracula. The events that transpire slowly convince Harker that he is in the midst of a vampyre. What he doesn't know, however, is the magnitude of danger he, his wife and his town are about to experience as victims of the Nosferatu
Le Crabe-tambour = Drummer-crab by Pierre Schoendoerffer( Visual )

Extrait du résumé figurant sur la jaquette : Un officier de la marine nationale française se voit confier un dernier commandement sur le Jauréguiberry chargé de l'assistance de la grande pêche sur les bancs de Terre-Neuve. Il mène aussi une quête personnelle, enracinée dans les guerres coloniales françaises : croiser une dernière fois un homme qu'il a connu, devenu patron d'un chalutier. Cette recherche est relayée par les souvenirs du médecin du bord et de l'officier mécanicien, qui évoquent ensemble un lieutenant de vaisseau surnommé le "Crabe-tambour". Images et témoignages se succèdent ; ils se remémorent cette figure légendaire qui les incite à interroger leur propre parcours

Warum die Kinder der Nachbardörfer Longueverne und Velans seit Menschengedenken bittere Feinde sind, weiß niemand mehr so genau. Werden Gefangene gemacht, ist es üblich, ihnen die Knöpfe abzuschneiden und die Hosenträger, was nicht nur schmachvoll ist, sondern auch Strafmaßnahmen zu Hause nach sich zieht. Also beschließen die Jungen, nackt in den Kampf zu ziehen, aber sie haben die Rechnung ohne die Brennnesseln gemacht. Da ist es schon besser, sich eine Knopfreserve anzulegen, um nach einer Niederlage den Verlust ersetzen zu können. Die kriegerischen Auseinandersetzungen nehmen mit der Einweisung der beiden Anführer ins Internat ein jähes Ende - bis zum nächsten Sommer, wenn ein neuer Krieg der Knöpfe ausbricht
