The deer hunter by Michael Cimino( Visual )

66 editions published between 1978 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 2,522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Five friends, Michael, Nick, Steven, Stan, and Axel, who are from a small town in middle America, work in the stifling heat and infernal din of a steel mill. They blow off steam after work at a neighborhood tavern. They go deer hunting every fall. One day late in 1968, Michael, Steven, and Nick leave for a tour of duty in Vietnam. Before they go, Steven marries the pregnant Angela; their wedding reception serves as the friend's farewell party. 30 years after it appeared, this film can still generate intense responses and controversy. Perhaps the best description of the subject was offered by film critic Roger Ebert, who said, "'The Deer Hunter' is said to be about many subjects: About male bonding, about mindless patriotism, about the dehumanizing effects of war, about Nixon's "silent majority." It is about any of those things that you choose, if you choose, but more than anything else, it is a heartbreakingly effective fictional machine that evokes the agony of the Vietnam time."

Trama: In una classe di bambini a cui è stato chiesto di raccontare della propria famiglia, la piccola Gertie comincia la sua descrizione: il papà Ollie lavorava nel campo degli addetti stampa per una grande etichetta discografica e cinematografica e la mamma Gertrude era collaboratrice di una casa editrice. Quando Gertrude perde la vita mettendo al mondo la primogenita Gertie, Ollie si trasferisce in New Jersey dal padre e si rituffa a capofitto nel lavoro per cercare di anestetizzare il dolore del lutto. La crescita e l'educazione della bambina vengono quindi completamente delegate al nonno Bart. Il nonno, tuttavia, pone Ollie di fronte alle sue responsabilità di padre e lo obbliga a portare con sé la figlia. In un momento di tensione, stressato dalla presenza di centinaia di giornalisti e dal pianto inarrestabile di Gertie, Ollie si lascia andare ad uno sfogo offensivo verso l'attore Will Smith che gli costa lavoro e carriera. Lo ritroviamo sette anni dopo, padre perfetto, operaio nel suo piccolo sobborgo a guidare la spazzatrice comunale e a ricevere sistematici rifiuti in tutti i colloqui sostenuti a New York dove nessuno ha dimenticato la sua sfuriata. Gertie, intanto, è cresciuta ed è una bambina vivace ed intelligente. Ollie è quasi pronto per una nuova relazione con Maja, giovane cassiera del videonoleggio che gli fa domande indiscrete sulla sua abitudine di noleggiare film hard. Quando però gli viene offerta la possibilità di sostenere un colloquio forse decisivo sembra disposto a sacrificare tutto, a spostarsi a New York sradicando Gertie dall'ambiente dove è cresciuta, addirittura a mancare la recita scolastica della figlia. Nell'attesa del colloquio di lavoro, è proprio l'incontro con Will Smith che lo fa riflettere sull'importanza dei figli e sulla necessità di fare sacrifici per loro Ollie rinuncia quindi al colloquio e corre alla scuola di Gertie, giusto in tempo per prendere parte al numero musicale della figlia
