Shoah by Claude Lanzmann( Visual )

22 editions published between 1985 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Umfassende Dokumentation über die systematische Vernichtung der europäischen Juden durch die Nationalsozialisten. Der Film zeigt kein historisches Material und setzt nicht auf optische Schocks. In langen Interviews mit Opfern und Tätern, in meditativen Bildern von den Orten des Geschehens 40 Jahre danach, zeigt der Film die Ereignisse der Vergangenheit im Spiegel der Gegenwart. [...] "Shoah" ist einer der bedrückendsten und zugleich beeindruckendsten Filme über die Todesfabriken des Dritten Reichs, weil er die üblichen Methoden der "Vergangenheitsbewältigung" und ihre filmische Darstellung radikal in Frage stellt." []

Indiqué sur la jaquette : Le Mahabharata" est le plus grand livre du monde. Il compte près de douze mille pages (environ quinze fois la Bible) et plus de 100.000 vers.

Ce film, composé en trois grandes parties ("La partie de dés", "L'exile dans la forêt" et "La guerre"), opposent deux familles cousines, les Pandavas et les Kauravas, qui se querellent pour savoir qui doit régner sur le monde. "Le Mahâbhârata est une épopée, avec des héros et des dieux, des animaux fabuleux. En même temps, l'œuvre est intime. C'est-à-dire que les personnages sont vulnérables, pleins de contradictions, totalement humains" (Peter Brook)
La belle noiseuse by Jacques Rivette( Visual )

18 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 276 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

Klassenverhältnisse by Danièle Huillet( Visual )

6 editions published between 1983 and 2007 in German and English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The film is based on Kafka's unfinished novel "Der Verschollene". It doesn't deal with the real United States but it is rather a kind of allegory taking place at no specific time in history. Straub and Huillet's version is about class relations and about the society that is created by capitalism, which is utterly cruel, capricious and ludicrous

Brigands, chapitre VII( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in Russian and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This crazy, satirical epic humorously portrays several eras in European history. Though the costumes and regimes change, the film suggests, the human motives of lust and greed remain the same. Jumping back and forth in time, the film condemns its characters to an eternity of irony. In one section, a medieval king named Vano, who has a penchant for exotic torture techniques, executes his wife for being unfaithful. Seamlessly the film flashes forward to the early 1930s, with another Vano, played by the same actor, portraying a low-down thief who suddenly seizes power. Intercut with all of this is the story of a contemporary Vano, a hapless drunk who wanders across the underworlds of Europe
Shoah( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over a decade in the making, this monumental investigation of the unthinkable: the murder of more than six million Jews by the Nazis. Using no archival footage, Claude Lanzmann instead focuses on first-person testimonies (of survivors and former Nazis, and other witnesses), employing a circular, free-associative method in assembling them. The intellectual yet emotionally overwhelming SHOAH is not a film about excavating the past but an intensive portrait in which the past is always present
