Syngué Sabour, pierre de patience = The patience stone by Atiq Rahimi( Visual )

Adapted from the best-selling novel by Atiq Rahimi. It tells a story of a young woman watching over her older husband, in a country torn apart by war. A bullet in the neck has reduced him to a comatose state. One day, the woman's vigil changes. She begins to speak truth to her silent husband, telling him about her suffering, her dreams and her secrets. After years of living under his control, with no voice of her own, she says things she could never have spoken before. Her husband has unconsciously become syngué sabour (The Patience Stone)- a magical black stone that, according to Persian mythology, absorbs the plight of those who confide in it. The woman's confessions are extraordinary and without restraint. But after weeks of looking after her husband, she begins to act, discovering herself in a relationship she starts with a young soldier

Luis Buñuel : le jeu et la loi by Marie-Claude Taranger( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in French and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"L'oeil tranché, d'Un chien Andalou, le scandale de l'Âge d'or? Une évidence : le projet cinématographique de Luis Buñuel se place d'emblée sous le signe de la rupture. Une question : la rupture opérée, que peut-il y avoir au-delà? Comment poursuivre une fois passé le point extrême du refus? Buñuel aurait pu être le Rimbaud du cinéma. Il aurait pu aussi être de ceux qui sont un jour rentrés dans le rang en abandonnant leurs révoltes de jeunesse. S'il n'a été ni l'un ni l'autre, c'est qu'il a réussi à élaborer une stratégie originale qui lui permette de ne renoncer ni à la création ni à la révolte. Cette stratégie repose sur le paradoxe et sur le jeu : loin de refuser d'abord l'ordre et la loi, les films ne cessent de s'y référer et de les mimer, mais pour les enfreindre et en renouveler indéfiniment la transgression. Cette mise en cause de l'ordre conduit à récuser les catégories fondamentales de notre pensée, de la causalité à la 'réalité', de l'identité à la vérité. Ainsi peut s'articuler une parole qui refuse les cadres mêmes qui lui donnent forme. On le vérifie ici avec trois des derniers films de Buñuel : 'La Voie lactée', le 'Charme discret de la bourgeoisie' et le 'Fantôme de la liberté'."--Book cover
