Novelist Gunter Grass assisted in this brilliant film adaptation of his groundbreaking novel, which depicts the horrors of two world wars in Germany via the brazen gaze of a very special young boy. Frustrated by the lies and hypocrisies that surround him, three year-old Oskar resorts to breaking glass with his shrill voice and banging relentlessly on his tin drum. With the fascists rising-up in his Polish-German hometown of Danzig, and the events leading up to the onslaught of Nazism coming to a head, Oskar is determined to boycott the adult world and remain a child forever.Vividly portrayed by the diminutive David Bennet, and brilliantly directed by master of the New German cinema, Volker Schlondorff, Oskar's epic coming-of-age story is a milestone of European film, and deservedly won top prize at Cannes and the Academy Awards

14 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The prismatic portrait of the days and nights of a party girl in sixties Rome is a revelation. It follows the gorgeous, seemingly liberated Adriana as she dallies with a wide variety of men, attends parties, goes to modeling gigs, and circulates among the rich and famous.

Klassenverhältnisse by Danièle Huillet( Visual )

22 editions published between 1983 and 2009 in German and English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on Kafka's unfinished novel 'Der Verschollene' (Amerika), Klassenverhältnisse doesn't deal with the real United States but it is rather an allegory taking place at no specific time in history. It is about class relations and about a society utterly cruel, capricious and ludicrous as it is shaped by capitalism. This 2 disc DVD offers a film transfer supervised by the filmmakers, two rare documentaries about the work on the film as well as unpublished rushes and photos from the shooting. The ROM section features additional material such as scripts, the shooting schedule, an interview and excerpts from a press conference with the filmmakers, and a book about the film (in German)"--Edited from back cover
