Hiroshima mon amour = Hiroshima, my love by Alain Resnais( Visual )

200 editions published between 1959 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 2,156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most influential films of all time, Alain Resnais' first feature is a beautifully realised parable of love and war set in bomb-ravaged Japan. Following Night and Fog, his devastating chronicle of the Nazi concentration camps, Resnais was asked to make a film about the atomic bomb, and responded with this moody masterwork, a love story in which a French actress (Emmanuelle Riva) and Japanese architect (Eiji Okada) exorcise their memories of war during a torrid affair amid the ruins of Hiroshima. Utilizing an innovative flashback structure and Academy Award-nominated screenplay by novelist Marguerite Duras, Resnais delicately weaves past and present, personal pain and public anguish, in a film that defined the French New Wave

Léon Morin, priest by Jean-Pierre Melville( Visual )

43 editions published between 1961 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 405 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

Blue, white, red : three colors( Visual )

3 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in French and held by 249 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

The developing myocardium by Emmanuèle Riva( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I will walk like a crazy horse = J'irai comme un cheval fou by Fernando Arrabal( Visual )

13 editions published between 1973 and 2007 in French and Spanish and held by 60 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
The passion of Bernadette = La passion de Bernadette( Visual )

3 editions published in 1991 in French and English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following up the acclaimed best-selling movie, Bernadette, the story of the apparitions of Our Lady in Lourdes to Bernadette Soubirous, this beautiful Jean Delannoy film tells the rest of the story of her life after the Marian visions- the life that made Bernadette a saint. The grotto at Lourdes is flourishing with many pilgrims, and Bernadette leaves to enter the convent of the sisters of Nevers to dedicate her life to God. Under the harsh rule of the Novice Mistress who "doesn't believe in apparitions", Bernadette, now Sister Marie Bernard, begins her life of achieving sanctity through prayer, faith, suffering, and deep charity toward all. With another moving performance by actress Sydney Penny, this film reveals incessant illness and suffering that St. Bernadette patiently, even cheerfully endured throughout her life in the convent, often repeating her prayer to "suffer and offer it to God." She went to her eternal reward in 1879, at the age of 35. When her body was exhumed many years later, it was found to be incorrupt. Today she lays in rest in a glass case in the chapel of the Sisters of Nevers, where millions have come to see "the little saint of Lourdes."
