2 editions published in 2004 in French and held by 84 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

Lumière by Michel Blay( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 in French and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La lumière a constitué depuis l'Antiquité un objet central de recherche. Cependant ce n'est qu'au XVIIe siècle que les théories physiques de la lumière, c'est à dire l'étude de la lumière et des couleurs au sens où nous l'entendons encore aujourd'hui, connurent leur véritable essor. Nous présenterons donc tout d'abord le cadre historique, conceptuel et expérimental à l'intétieur duquel se sont constituées les théories de la lumière et des couleurs au XVIIe siècle. Nous nous attacherons ensuite à suivre à travers l'analyse des principaux phénomènes (interférence, diffraction, polarisation) les enjeux du débat entre théories ondulatoires et corpusculaires. Nous consacrerons la dernière partie aux aspects contemporains des théories de la lumière dans leur rapport avec la structure atomique et la mécanique quantique
