Blue, white, red three colors ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2011 in French and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A bold trio of stories about love and loss ... [that] was a defining event of the art-house boom of the 90s. The films are named for the colors of the French flag and stand for the tenets of the French Revolution: liberty, equality, and fraternity--but that hardly explains their enigmatic beauty and rich humanity. Set in Paris, Warsaw, and Geneva, and ranging from tragedy to comedy, Blue, White, and Red ... examine a group of ambiguously interconnected people experiencing profound personal disruptions"--Container
Léon Morin, prêtre by Jean-Pierre Melville ( Visual )
26 editions published between 1961 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Life during wartime is not simply men shooting at one another, but also women tending to their children. The widow Barny is one, an office worker in a rural village in occupied France, whose child's father was a Jewish man. When genial Italians occupy the village, all is well. Then the Nazis arrive, round up and shoot the Italians, and get down to the business of rounding up Jews. Barny has her daughter baptized as a Catholic for legal certification--and also sends her to hide on a farm in the country. A communist, she takes out her anger at this subterfuge by arguing with the priest, the young Father Morin. The priest and the widow begin a series of spiritually-cum-sexually-charged dialogues. Barny's crush on Father Morin offers a place for the film to examine religious conviction, while exploring the philosophy of belief and its meaning in everyday struggle
Léon Morin, priest ( Visual )
4 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in French and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Léon Morin is a devoted man of the cloth who is also the crush object of all the women of a small village in Nazi-occupied France. He finds himself most drawn to a sexually frustrated widow, a borderline heretic whose relationship with her confessor is a confrontation with both God and her own repressed desire. A triumph of mood, setting, and innuendo, Léon Morin, Priest is an irreverent pleasure from one of French cinema's towering virtuosos

J'irai comme un cheval fou I will walk like a crazy horse ( Visual )
8 editions published between 1973 and 2007 in French and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Arrabal's second film forsakes the political allegory present in Viva La Muerte for a dramatic discovery of faith and organized religion. The story follows a man, Aden, played by the American George Shannon, who flees society after the death of his controlling mother. Out in the wilderness he encounters the beauty of nature, and under the tutelage of a hermit named Marvel, becomes a "normal homme." Aden falls desperately in love with Marvel, who can communicate with animals, the clouds, and the sun. Upon returning to civilization, Marvel in tow, Aden is more aware than ever of the hideous and hypocritical nature of human society. Long considered a masterpiece of surrealist film, it stands as Arrabal's most delirious and devlish picture, an outrageous portrait of both other-worldly beauty and inner torment
