Brigands, chapitre VII by Otar Iosseliani( Visual )
4 editions published between 1996 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 82 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

L'Enfer d'Henri-Georges Clouzot by Serge Bromberg( Visual )
1 edition published in 2010 in French and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
En 1964, Henri-Georges Clouzot choisit Romy Schneider, 26 ans, et Serge Reggiani, 42 ans, pour être les vedettes de L'Enfer. Un projet énigmatique et insolite, un budget illimité, un film qui devait être un "événement" cinématographique à sa sortie. Mais après 3 semaines de tournage, le drame. Le projet est interrompu, et les images que l'on disait "incroyables" ne seront jamais dévoilées. Ces images, oubliées depuis un demi-siècle, ont été retrouvées et elles sont plus époustouflantes que la légende l'avait prédit. Elles racontent un film unique, la folie et la jalousie filmées en caméra subjective, l'histoire d'un tournage maudit et celle d'Henri-Georges Clouzot qui avait laissé libre cours à son génie de cinéaste. Jamais Romy n'a été aussi belle et hypnotique. Jamais un auteur n'aura été aussi proche et fusionnel avec le héros qu'il a inventé. Serge Bromberg et Ruxandra Medrea réussissent ici une "recomposition" de l'oeuvre disparue, créant un nouveau film qui raconte l'histoire de ce naufrage magnifique et qui permet au projet d'exister enfin

Chronik der Anna Magdalena Bach Sicilia! ; Une visite au Louvre ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2009 in German and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Chronik der Anna Magdalena Bach, which covers the years of Bach's life from his marriage to Anna Magdalena to his death in 1748, is at once a love story, a documentary, a socio-political statement, and a film of the music of Bach. Sicilia! is a four part film which follows Silvestro, an emigrant who is returning home after fifteen years spent in America. His conversations, with his mother, on the train, or on the price of oranges, as well as the recurrent shot of arid landscape outside the train window, supply some of the most intense and memorable moments in contemporary cinema. Une visite au Louvre: as the camera shows us some of the masterpieces held in the Louvre, Julie Kotaï speaks the comments made about the paintings by Cézanne which were put into writing by the poet Joachim Gasquet
