L'armée des ombres = Army of shadows by Jean-Pierre Melville( Visual )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2020 in French and held by 861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'Armee des Ombres is a stark and unvarnished story about Resistance fighters in Vichy France in 1942-43 when the French leadership allowed the Nazis to occupy the country. The members of this army are cold, hungry, desperate men and women, with false names and no addresses, who can be betrayed in an instant by a traitor or an accident. They know they will probably die. A meditation on the nature of resistance and the price of courage, these heroes can save their own country only by cutting themselves apart from it. Entangled in the political turmoil engulfing France in the wake of May '68--as a result received poorly there--the film was not distributed in the US until 2006
Le cercle rouge = Red circle by Jean-Pierre Melville( Visual )

8 editions published between 1970 and 2011 in French and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

« Master thief Corey (Alain Delon) is fresh out of prison. But instead of toeing the line of law-abiding freedom, he finds his steps leading back to the shadowy world of crime, crossing paths with a notorious escapee (Gian Maria Volonté) and an alcoholic ex-cop (Yves Montand). As the unlikely trio plots a heist against impossible odds, their trail is pursued by a relentless inspector (André Bourvil), and fate begins to seal their destinies. Taking its title from Buddhist lore, Jean-Pierre Melville’s Le Cercle rouge combines honorable anti-heroes, coolly atmospheric cinematography, and breathtaking set pieces to create a masterpiece of crime cinema. »--

Trafic by Jacques Tati( Visual )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Trafic was Jacques Tati's final outing as the bumbling, amiable Monsieur Hulot, one of cinema's most beloved comic screen personas, following his appearance in films such as Les Vacances de M. Hulot, Mon Oncle and Playtime. In Trafic he accompanies his car firm's new vehicle - an absurd Hulot-esque camper van - to a motor show in Amsterdam. This prescient satire on man's obsession with motorised transport mixes wonderful observational comedy with laugh-out-loud moments. Tati's typically subtle choreography of people and objects is a rewarding lesson in how to see the world anew."--Container
