Frank Riva( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"He's lost his past, he's lost his roots - but not his enemies. Legendary French stage and screen actor Alain Delon stars as Frank Riva, an ex-undercover cop called in from retirement after 25 years of exile to investigate the mysterious circumstances surrounding the murder of his brother in a drug sting operation. He soon finds himself back on the trail of the notorious Loggia crime family, who had put a bounty on his head during the French Connection days. Frank is forced to pick up the pieces of a life he left behind a quarter of a century ago: his old flame Catherine, Nina Rizzi, the daughter he never knew, and Xavier Unger, his former partner, now chief of the Paris police. He must also put together a new team to confront the Loggia gang: Superintendent Lydie Herzog, his nominal superior, the headstrong Captain Hervé Sebastian, and rookie computer whiz Juliette Janssen. Frank Riva is a police officer who follows his instinct and refuses to be deflected from his mission, a man who ignores social convention and flouts rules and regulations, and who lives according to his own deep conviction of right and wrong." --Container

Nuovo cinema paradiso by Giuseppe Tornatore( Visual )

The story begins in the present as a Sicilian mother pines for her estranged son, who left many years ago and has since become a prominent Roman film director who has taken the advice of his mentor too literally. He finally returns to his home village to attend the funeral of the town's former film projectionist and, in so doing, embarks upon a journey into his boyhood just after WW II when he became the unofficial son of the town projectionist. In the dark confines of the Cinema Paradiso, the boy and the other townsfolk try to escape from the grim realities of post-war Italy. The town censor is also there to insure nothing untoward appears onscreen, invariably demanding that all kissing scenes be edited out. One day, Salvatore saves the projectionist's life after a fire, and then befriends the new projectionist. A few years later, Salvatore falls in love with a beautiful girl who breaks his heart after he is inducted into the military. Thirty years later, Salvatore has come to say good-bye to his life-long friend, who has left him a little gift in a film can.--

The confessions of Jean Jacques Rousseau by Jean-Jacques Rousseau( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his Confessions, Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-78) tells the story of his life, from the formative experiences of his humble childhood in Geneva, through the achievement of international fame as novelist and philosopher in Paris, to his wanderings as an exile, persecuted by governments and alienated from the modern world. In trying to explain who he was and how he came to be the object of others' admiration and abuse, Rousseau analyses with unique insight the relationship between an elusive but essential inner self and the variety of social identities he was led to adopt. Confessions is Rousseau's search, through every resource of language, to convey what he despairs of putting into words: the personal quality of one's own existence." "This translation includes the preface to the Neuchatel manuscript, which provides insights into Rousseau's conception of autobiography."--Jacket
