Lacombe, Lucien by Louis Malle( Visual )

103 editions published between 1973 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 965 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the first French films to address the issue of collaboration during the German Occupation, Louis Malle's brave and controversial Lacombe Lucien traces a young peasant's journey from potential Resistance member to Gestapo recruit. At once the story of a nation and one troubled boy's horrific coming of age, the film is a disquieting portrait of lost innocence and guilt

Les amants = The lovers by Louis Malle( Visual )

112 editions published between 1957 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sensuous but bored provincial wife attempts to find love and a more meaningful life in an adulterous relationship with a younger man. Truffaut called the film "the first night of love in the cinema." The film's guiltless treatment of an illicit affair, however, caused a furor of protest and censorship upon its release. It also made an international star of Jeanne Moreau
Le feu follet = The fire within by Louis Malle( Visual )

77 editions published between 1963 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After garnering international acclaim for such seminal crowd-pleasers as The Lovers and Zazie dans le métro, Louis Malle gave his fans a shock with The Fire Within (Le feu follet), a penetrating study of individual and social inertia. Maurice Ronet (Elevator to the Gallows), in an implosive, haunted performance, plays Alain Leroy, a self-destructive writer who resolves to kill himself and spends the next twenty-four hours trying to reconnect with a host of wayward friends. Unsparing in its portrait of Alain's inner turmoil and shot with remarkable clarity, The Fire Within is one of Malle's darkest and most personal films
Lacombe Lucien : the complete scenario of the film by Louis Malle : text by Louis Malle( Book )

57 editions published between 1973 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With a superb music score by Django Reinhardt, this is a Louis Malle film about the German occupation of France. Based on his own experiences in France during the occupation, Malle's film does not paint a pretty picture of the French Resistance and eventually he emigrated to America because of the critical reaction to this film. Essentially the tale of a young boy who wants to join the Resistance but is shunned by them because of his youth, he joins the Gestapo. Unfortunately, he then falls in love with a young Jewish girl. Push comes to shove and he suddenly has the unsympathetic Resistance and the Gestapo hot on his trail. Not a pretty picture of either side

After skirting the horrors of an unidentified war being waged in an anonymous countryside, a beautiful young woman takes refuge in a remote farmhouse where she becomes embroiled in the surreal domestic odyssey of a mysterious family. Evocatively shot by cinematographer Sven Nykvist, 'Black Moon' is a Freudian tale of adolescent sexuality set in a post-apocalyptic world of shifting identities and talking animals. It's a cinematic daydream like no other

"In 1979, Louis Malle traveled into the heart of Minnesota to capture the everyday lives of the men and women of a prosperous farming community. He returned six years later, during Ronald Reagan's second term, to find drastic economic decline. Free of stereotypes about America's heartland, GOD'S COUNTRY, commissioned for American public television, is a stunning work of emotional and political clarity"--Container
