La face cachée du pétrole [enjeux et secrets de l'histoire du pétrole au XXe siècle] by Patrick Barbéris( Visual )
1 edition published in 2010 in French and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Depuis le début du XXe siècle, le pétrole est au coeur de tous les événements majeurs (politiques, militaires, économiques) qui ont façonné notre monde. Une histoire qui demeure entourée de nombreux mystères. 'La face cachée du pétrole' dévoile ces stratégies secrètes qui ont fait de l'or noir une arme et un enjeu décisifs. -- 1. Le partage du monde: La toute puissance des dirigeants pétroliers s'exerce dès les premières découvertes. Avant de devenir des États souverains, l'Iran et l'Irak ne sont que de vastes concessions pétrolières. Pendant la 1re guerre mondiale, la compagnie de John Rockefeller approvisionne des manière décisive la machine militaire alliée. En 1928, 17 ans avant Yalta, les dirigeants des compagnies pétrolières se partagent le monde au terme d'un accord qui demeure secret jusqu'au début des années 50. -- 2. Les grandes manipulations: Le choc pétrolier de 1973 fut avant tout une gigantesque manipulation des compagnies pétrolières qui souhaitaient augmenter les prix du baril pour financer leurs investissements. L'administration Reagan utilisa l'arme du pétrole saoudien pour faire chuter les cours mondiaux et provoquer l'effondrement de l'Union soviétique. En 1986, les pays du Golfe ont augmenté artificiellement de 65% le montant de leurs ressources pétrolières. Nourri d'archives et de témoignages d'acteurs directs de l'Histoire, le film révèle l'enjeu géopolitique que représente le pétrole."--Conteneur

Zitternd vor Nervosität wartet Nachrichtensprecherin Rebecca am Madrider Flughafen: Nach 15 Jahren kehrt ihre Mutter Becky zurück, die erfolgreiche Showdiva, die nie erwachsen geworden ist. Rebeccas Erinnerungen jagen als Flashbacks durch die Eingangssequenz: Sie hat die Mutter vergöttert, geliebt, doch diese Liebe wurde nie erwidert. Aus verhinderter Liebe wurde Haß - und eine Ehe: Denn die Tochter heiratete einen früheren Liebhaber ihrer Mutter, Manuel. Bevor der am nächsten Morgen ermordet aufgefunden wird und die Story einen ersteren Ton annimmt, fürht uns Almodovar noch einmal durch seine grellbunte Phantasiewelt: Rebecca, Becky und Manuel besuchen den Auftritt des Transvestiten Femme Letal: Gelegenheit für eine schöne Shownummer mit Beckys alten Songs und für eine frivole Verführungsszene hinter der Bühne ...

Ein wandlungsfähiger Richter versucht, dem Mord auf die Spur zu kommen. Pedro Almodovar setzt ein Mutter-Tochter-Melodram in knalliger Pop-Art-Manier um, versehen mit dem Witz und der Ironie und Hysterie, die auch seinen bisherigen Werken eigen sind.
