Composer Gustav von Aschenbach takes a convalescent holiday at the Venice Lido after the death of his child and the disastrous reception of his new compositions. Bored, he indulges an idle, whimsical, faintly epicurean interest in a beautiful boy sporting on the beach.

The onset of a deadly pestilence resolves his infatuation, as corruption eventually compromises all ideals

Le grand blanc de Lambaréné by Bassek Ba Kobhio( Visual )
2 editions published between 1995 and 2005 in French and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Cameroonian filmmaker Bassek Ba Kobhio provides a revisionist perspective on Albert Schweitzer, Nobel Peace Prize winner and secular saint of the colonial era. Shot on the site of Schweitzer's hospital in Gabon, the film reveals him to be a man blinded to the people around him by his own spiritual self-absorption and arrogance. His paternalism leads him to cast Africans as childlike primitives to be protected from modernity, which for Ba Kobhio embodies the ultimate evil of colonialism in its inability to value the cultural difference and creative potential in Africans themselves

Determination of pH; theory and practice by Roger G Bates( Book )
1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In portraying the rise and fall, in eighteenth century Ireland and England, of Barry Lyndon - an adventurer-gambler, a cad and a romantic idealist - Kubrick departs from Thackeray's picaresque novel in scope and tone. The first person narrator of the novel gives way in the film to the third person who assumes a good deal of the storytelling function, adding to the sense of detachment and abstraction typical of Kubrick. The way that this film polarised the critics suggests that it may hold a key to his oeuvre. Enervating pictorialism or a stately meditation upon the trappings of cultural ritual that we call civilisation? The painterly tableaux suggest the 'otherness' of a past era - a world as alien as that of 2001 - in a way matched by few other period films
