Carlos by Olivier Assayas( Visual )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Filmbiografie über Aufstieg, Höhepunkt und Fall des Linksterroristen Ilich Ramírez Sánchez, der als "Carlos" in den 1970er-Jahren durch politisch motivierte Anschläge zweifelhaften Ruhm erlangte. In strenger Triptychon-Struktur entwickelt der Film ein facettenreiches Zeitbild der politischen Verwicklungen während des Kalten Krieges. Ein herausragendes, von kinematografischer Energie durchpulstes Porträt, das den linken Terror als Arena eitler Egos demontiert und seinen Protagonisten als erfolgsversessenen "Global Player" zeigt, dessen politischer Idealismus bald auf der Strecke bleibt.

Clean by Olivier Assayas( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trama: Dopo la morte del suo compagno, la rockstar in declino Lee Hauser, a causa di una partita di droga tagliata male, Emily, una donna di origini asiatiche, anch'ella tossicodipendente e con un passato nel mondo dello spettacolo, cerca di ricostruirsi una vita, principalmente per riavere in affidamento il figlio Jay, lasciato ai nonni paterni poco dopo la sua nascita, otto anni prima. Dopo essere uscita dal carcere (era stata arrestata perché accusata di aver fornito la dose letale a Lee), Emily fugge dal distretto industriale di Hamilton (Canada) e si reca a Parigi dove, ottenuto un lavoro come cameriera, fatica a ritrovare un po' di stabilità. Sono troppo poche le forze che le restano dopo le cure di metadone e troppo grande il vuoto lasciato dalla morte del compagno per rinunciare alla tentazione di ricadere nel tunnel della droga. Nel frattempo, i genitori di Lee, Albrecht e Rosemary, oltre a doversi occupare del piccolo Jay, devono affrontare la malattia, probabilmente mortale, della stessa Rosemary. Anche per questo motivo Albrecht - che dopo la morte di Lee aveva invitato Emily a restare il più lontano possibile dal figlio - riallaccia segretamente i rapporti con la donna. L'incontro con Albrecht e la prospettiva di passare un weekend con il figlio spingono Emily a cercare una nuova via d'uscita da un'esistenza sofferente e confusa: accetta un nuovo lavoro come commessa in un grande magazzino, rifiuta la proposta di incidere un disco a San Francisco, pur di riabbracciare il figlio. Quando incontra finalmente Jay a Parigi (condotto dal nonno da Londra, dove Rosemary è stata ricoverata), Emily si trova davanti un bambino che le attribuisce la responsabilità della morte del padre, ma che è altresì piacevolmente sorpreso dalla sua estrema sincerità. Potrebbe portarlo con sé a San Francisco (è lo stesso Jay a domandarglielo) ma preferisce riconsegnarlo al nonno, per permettere alla nonna malata di passare un po' di tempo con il nipote prima della sua morte
