"Camille falls out of love with her husband while he is rewriting the screenplay The Odyssey by American producer Jeremiah Prokosch. Just as the director of Prokosch's film, Fritz Lang, says the The Odyssey is the story of individuals confronting their situations in a real world, Contempt itself is an examination of the position of the filmmaker in the commercial cinema industry."--Container

"When Celestine begins work as a chambermaid in a crumbling Normandy estate, she is privy to the most personal of details about each of the members of the household: M. Monteil's craving for sex, Mm. Rabour's embittered repression, father-in-law M. Rabour's refined fetishism. But when two unexpected and shocking events take place in the quiet country community, Celestine suspects that the staunchly right-wing farm labourer, Joseph, is involved, and does everything in her power to make him confess"--Container

His advisors, unable to convince him he is the right man for the job, seek help from a renowned psychoanalyst (and atheist). But his fear of the responsibility suddenly thrust upon him is one that he must face on his own
La belle noiseuse The beautiful troublemaker by Jacques Rivette( Visual )

72 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A painter suffering artistic burnout is inspired by his meeting with Marianne at his Languedoc villa. She is persuaded to pose for him as he attempts to recover the 'masterpiece' he had abandoned ten years earlier. The film becomes a playing out of the process of creation (of a painting/a film), a battle of wills between the artist and his model, the artist's wife (who has been his model) and Marianne's lover. This package contains two versions of the film both prepared by Rivette - the four-hour version more in the nature of a performance piece, which explains the process in exhaustive detail (including the hand of an actual artist, Bernhard Dufour, at work) while the two-hour version (minus Dufour's hand) is brisker, more in the nature of a short story, which provides a different perspective on the relationships

La voie lactée The milky way by Luis Buñuel( Visual )

32 editions published between 1968 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of Buñuel's most vigorous critiques of Catholic doctrine, The Milky Way is a picaresque tale about a pair of scraggly pilgrims who set off from Paris to experience an age old European tradition, the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. In the course of their journey, they traverse not only space, but time, traveling back in history to bear witness to Jesus' speech at the wedding in Cana, as well as remarks by the Virgin Mary about her son's grooming habits. Before the pilgrimage comes to an end, both the Devil himself and the Marquis de Sade make an appearance. Discussions of the articles of faith include the observations of a rural police inspector, whose skepticism about the nature of the Eucharist leads him to conclude, "You'll never convince me that the body of Christ can be enclosed in a piece of bread!"
Le Doulos by Jean-Pierre Melville( Visual )

38 editions published between 1962 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le Doulos pays tribute to the American gangster films of the 1940's whilst retaining a uniquely French perspective. Where the Hollywood noir strives for clarity and simplification, Melville's films and Le Doulos in particular, retain their ambiguity, leading to a major coupe du théâtre at the film's finale
Holy motors by Léos Carax( Visual )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leos Carax returns to cinema after a 13-year hiatus with HOLY MOTORS, a brilliant, visually striking film that was one of the toasts of this year's Cannes Film Festival. Apparently inspired by the filmmaker's fascination with the after hours life of stretch limousines, Denis Lavant plays Monsieur Oscar who, over the course of a single day, takes on 10 other guises, ranging from a gangster and ageing millionaire to a troubled parent and anarchic tramp. With impressive cameos by Eva Mendes and Kylie Minogue, HOLY MOTORS is the rarest of things - a true original." -- cover
