"Elf Episoden aus dem Leben von Monsieur Oscar, der von Sonnenaufgang bis Sonnenuntergang in einer weißen Stretch-Limousine durch Paris chauffiert wird und dabei jeweils in eine andere Existenz schlüpft ... . Der hochenergetische Film bietet ein vom Hauptdarsteller Denis Lavant mit beängstigender Präsenz gemeistertes Stakkato voller Einfälle und cinephiler Anspielungen. Er strotzt vor visueller Kraft und Energie und lässt sich als hypnotisch-grotesker Versuch über das Menschsein an der Grenze zu Verfall und Tod interpretieren." []

On Capri, an Italian crew makes a German film of Homer's Odyssey; Fritz Lang directs with American money. Prokosch, the producer, with his sneer and red Alfa, holds art films in contempt and hires writer Javal to help Lang commercialize the picture. Against this backdrop, Javal's marriage to Camille, a young former typist, disintegrates. It opens with the couple talking in bed, she asking assurance that he finds her attractive. Later that day he introduces her to Prokosch, and, unawares, blunders unforgivably. The rest of the film portrays her, in their apartment and in public, expressing her hurt and change of heart and his slow grasp of the source of her contempt
La belle noiseuse by Jacques Rivette( Visual )

58 editions published between 1990 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 529 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

Le Doulos by Jean-Pierre Melville( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the title screens explain, in gangster slang, 'doulos' means 'hat.' In the slang shared by criminal and police, 'doulos' also designates the person who wears it: the informer. Through shadowy back streets on the edge of Paris, an ingenious cat and mouse game is played as two underworld characters, seemingly working against each other, find themselves in a deadly entanglement of their own making but infinitely larger than both of them. Faugel, a thief recently released from prison, and Silien, Faugel's best friend and all-around suspicious character, are up against shady nightclub owner Nuttheccio, and the police's Capt. Clain, ruthless as any criminal. The hapless gangsters know two things: their sense of honor is the only thing they can take with them to the grave, and that date with the grave is coming all too soon. By Jean-Pierre Melville, French poet of crime cinema, full of shadows, night, trench coats, guns, tough guys, cigarettes, slinky dames, cocktail bars, crooked cops, betrayal, and loot
