Muriel, ou, Le temps d'un retour by Alain Resnais ( Visual )
10 editions published between 1963 and 2007 in French and English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Set precisely in the reconstructed city of Bologne in September-October 1962; two triangles overlap and interact as the central participants in different ways subject themselves to the pull of the past through guilt and the result of present tedium. A straighforward even mundane story is broken up into an emotionally horizontal chain of short scenes wittily rendered difficult by ellipses and fragmentation. Even though linearity is preserved, the focus is on selected undramatic moments. While Resnais maintains a consistent underlying attitude to the past in all his films and collaborations, in Muriel it is the nouveau romanesque suppression of character and story in favour of the form of the emotion that is uppermost

The belly of an architect by Peter Greenaway ( Visual )
16 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Stourley Kracklite, a burly middle-aged American architect, is in Rome to organize a large-scale exhibition of the work of Etienne-Louis Boullee (1728-1799), a visionary French architect. His wife Louisa is along, and a little bored with his cerebral fixations. Surrounded by Roman art and architecture--whose perfect scaling and Classicist surfaces he has always admired--Kracklite is overcome by narcissistic jealousy. Amidst the graceful clean domes, virile statues, and sturdily parallel columns of Roman monuments, Kracklite suspects Louisa of trying to poison him as his prodigious gut begins giving him searing pains. Anxious and paranoid, he's undone by his fear that despite his internal inspirations, an architect is a speck of a thing compared to what he builds--huge, material spectacles that far outlive their progenitors

To help him in his task, a group of actors pose as the figures in the paintings to create a series of human tableaux.

2 editions published between 1978 and 1991 in French and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An erudite art collector guides an unseen interviewer around six paintings by Frederic Tonnerre, a fictitious 19th century painter, in an attempt to solve the mystery of a missing seventh painting, the disapperance of which has provoked a major scandal. Ruiz's intriguing meditation on the possibilities and limitations of the pictorial in the cinema is also a detective story with clues and solution. The film presents the six paintings as tableaux vivants in which the actors hold poses as they are minutely examined. The film forces the viewer-voyeur to reappraise his approach to static paintings and to the narrative flow of film
