Les livres, voilà l'ennemi ! Dans un pays indéfini, à une époque indéterminée, la lecture est rigoureusement interdite : elle empêcherait les gens d'être heureux. La brigade des pompiers a pour seule mission, non d'éteindre les incendies, mais de traquer les gens qui possèdent des livres et de réduire ces objets en cendres. Montag, pompier zélé et citoyen respectueux des institutions, rencontre Clarisse, une jeune institutrice qui le fait douter de sa fonction. Peu à peu il est à son tour gagné par l'amour des livres. (Jaquette)

Mata-Hari : agente H-21 by Jean-Louis Richard( Visual )

12 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 17 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

After sex Post coitum animal triste : un film by Brigitte Roüan( Visual )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in French and German and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eine scheinbar glücklich verheiratete Verlagslektorin in den besten Jahren lässt sich auf eine Affäre mit einem wesentlich jüngeren Mann ein, der sie aber bald verlässt, weil er ihre bedingungslose Leidenschaft nicht teilen kann. Am Ende stehen der Verlust von Arbeit, Familie und Selbstachtung und die Angst vor der völligen Verwahrlosung. Eine Tragikomödie, die die Geschichte einer "amour fou" ganz aus dem Blickwinkel der betroffenen Frau erzählt. Obwohl der zweite Spielfilm von Brigitte Roüan in Lust, Leidenschaft und Trennungsschmerz schwelgt, wird immer ein ironisierender Standpunkt beibehalten, der die Geschichte spiegelt. Ein souverän inszenierter Spielfilm, der auch darstellerisch zu überzeugen versteht. [film-dienst]
