Marcello Rubini, a frustrated 'serious' writer, does tabloid journalism to make ends meet. He spends every evening in Via Veneto awaiting the next scandal, party invitation, or sexual proposition. From an enigmatic woman named Maddalena, to wealthy intellectual Steiner's penthouse, to a famous actress named Sylvia, Marcello finds himself caught up in the carnival spectacle of nightlife and its fleeting happiness. The empty evenings seem to weave together, a decadent rhythm punctuated only by the regret of the following morning. Marcello is consumed by self-doubt and unable to enjoy the success he has, and so stumbles on, dreaming of attaining the elusive sweet life

Katyn by Andrzej Wajda( Visual )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in Polish and held by 769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Katyn is the harrowing true story of the massacre of Polish officers by Stalin's secret police during World War II, and of their families who, unaware of the crime, were still waiting for them to return. It's also a film about the continuing struggle over History and memory, and an uncompromising exploration of the Russian cover up of the massacre that prevented the Polish people from commemorating those that had been killed."--Container
Jésus de Montréal by Denys Arcand( Visual )

9 editions published in 2004 in French and English and held by 762 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Montreal shrine seeks to inspire its congregants by modernizing its historically successful yet predictable staging of the Passion play.

But as the play enjoys this success, the actors become more and more challenged to separate their real lives from their lives onstage

The bridge by Eric Steel( Visual )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2004, 24 people jumped to their deaths from the Golden Gate Bridge. More people have chosen to end their lives at the Golden Gate Bridge than anywhere else in the world."--End titles. What makes the suicides at the bridge so unusual is that they take place in broad daylight, in front of people in a busy place - unlike most suicides, which are enacted in extreme privacy. Filmmaker Eric Steel and his crew spent 2004 filming the bridge during daylight hours from two locations, grappling with the ethical question of when to alert authorities, and their responsibilities as observers. The film features interviews with the families and friends of some of the victims that year, as well as one person who changed his mind. Offering a glimpse into one of the darkest, most impenetrable corners of the human mind, the film also interrogates society's ability to blithely ignore the grim realities of depression, mental illness, and drug abuse that underly so many suicides. These are only some of the factors discussed by the film, common to the twenty four people who died at the Golden Gate Bridge in 2004, who are now linked together forever by a 4 second fall in an otherwise magically, mysteriously beautiful place
