Gosford Park by Robert Altman( Visual )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and French and held by 1,702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La historia de un accidentado fin de semana en una típica casa de descanso inglesa en el año 1932. Sus ocupantes son retratados por el ojo crítico de Altman quién divide a sus habitantes en dos secciones: Arriba y Abajo. Mientras que en la parte superior las pláticas tratan sobre temas como dinero, política y traiciones. En la parte inferior; los sirvientes de los nobles recrean sus vidas al estilo de los grandes señores. Al ser descubierto el anfitrión de la fiesta muerto; los secretos que todos guardaban celosamente empiezan a salir a la luz pública poniéndose en evidencia un pasado lleno de engaños donde no existen ya divisiones económicas y todos son presas de los mismos defectos y capaces de cometer los más perversos crímenes y traiciones."--Envase
