Rocco e i suoi fratelli by Luchino Visconti( Visual )

Luchino Visconti's operatic masterpiece tells the story of the Parondis, a poor family from a village in southern Italy who come to Milan seeking a better life. Following the death of her husband, proud Rosaria (Katina Paxinou) picks up stakes and moves to the city with four of her sons: Simone (Renato Salvatori), Rocco (Alain Delon), Ciro (Max Cartier), and Luca (Rocco Vidolazzi). Awaiting them in Milan is her oldest son, Vincenzo (Spiros Focas), who himself is preoccupied with his impending nuptials to the beautiful Ginetta (Claudia Cardinale). Divided into chapters focused loosely on each brother, the movie chronicles the Parondis' struggle to get by, as the brothers take odd jobs and the family endures life in a cramped tenement. Much of the movie's second half deals largely with Simone and Rocco. The loutish Simone eventually finds success as a boxer, and the family soon moves to a better neighborhood. Meanwhile, Rocco gets drafted by the military, and becomes a successful boxer himself upon his return. Complications arise when Nadia (Annie Girardot), a prostitute, enters their lives. Simone falls in love with Nadia first; however, Rocco eventually becomes the object of her affection. Simone's obsession with Nadia and his rapidly deteriorating behavior ultimately threaten to bring the family to ruin, even as the saintly Rocco tries to save his brother. At the peak of Rocco's success, Simone commits a crime that cruelly dashes Rocco's hopes of keeping the family together

Her brother-in-law is a lay-about; her peevish mother-in-law worships her sons and exploits Clara, the only working adult in the household. One day she passes out on the factory floor, and the National Health Service diagnosis of tuberculosis is justification for sending her to a sanatorium in the mountains. There she meets a young man, and falls desperately in love. If, as Appollinaire said, "Sickness is the vacation of the poor," what will happen when Clara is well?

State of siege by Costa-Gavras( Visual )

12 editions published between 1973 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an unnamed, repressive South American country, an American CIA agent is held hostage by a left-wing guerrilla group demanding the release of 150 political prisoners. Rapid-fire crosscutting builds suspense as the official's life hangs in the balance. Costa-Gavras' political thriller, filmed in Allende's Chile, examines the terrorist act in terms of national policy and U.S. intervention in Latin America. The plot is a thinly veiled re-enactment of the actual 1970 kidnap and murder in Uruguay of Dan A. Mitrione, an official with the United States Agency for International Development. The director's indictment of America's clandestine collusion with Latin American dictatorships caused the film to be withdrawn from the American Film Institute Theater in 1973. The film was also criticized by the Left who condemned Costa-Gavras' sympathetic portrayal of the CIA in the guise of Yves Montand. (Does not circulate)
