Fahrenheit 451 by François Truffaut( Visual )

87 editions published between 1966 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 2,705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this society of the future the job of firemen is to hunt out and incinerate books. 451 degrees F. is the temperature at which they burn. Typically Truffaut sought for new ways to combine pre-existing elements and unsettle audience expectations. Here he makes the fantastic seem banal and the banal seem strange. He strips Bradbury's story of its futuristic elements and apocalyptic ending in blending elements of the recent past and the near future. Truffaut humanises Bradbury's abstract characters blurring the clear-cut opposition between Montag and the Captain. Julie Christie's dual roles suggest the potential for both submission and revolt in most of us

Mata Hari, agent H21 by Jean-Louis Richard( Visual )

9 editions published between 1990 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'action se passe à Paris en 1917. On ne parle que de cette guerre qui ne veut plus finir, des civils qui ne peuvent pas comprendre, des embusqués qui mènent la belle vie. Partout le découragement et avec lui, la peur et sa conséquence: l'espionnage. Dans un music-hall parisien se produit une superbe danseuse d'origine javanaise, MATA-HARI dont le nom signifie Fille du Soleil. Ses danses orientales plus suggestives que sacrées, lui valent d'être très en vogue. Les salons parisiens se disputent sa présence, ses admirateurs civils et surtout militaires se multiplient. Cette femme, à la fois courtisane et espionne, nous semble tantôt pure et tantôt rouée, enfantine et diabolique, fragile et dangereuse, amoureuse et intrigante. Le film s'attache à suivre pas à pas les faits et gestes de cette trop belle créature à la faveur de ses entreprises amoureuses et de ses aventures d'espionne. --Conteneur
