2 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Composed almost entirely of brilliantly shot, single-take vignettes focusing on characters connected to one seemingly minor incident on a Paris street, Haneke's film, with an outstanding international cast is a revelatory take on racial inequality and the failure of communication in today's increasingly diverse European landscape
Le temps du loup = Time of the wolf by Michael Haneke( Visual )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in French and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An extremely timely and prescient piece of social commentary, Time of the Wolf follows a family's difficult journey immediately after an unknown apocalyptic event. Haneke never tells us what happened, or where, or when, but instead puts us directly into the terrifying aftermath, with all of its confusion, uncertainty, and danger. As all social laws and codes are suddenly overturned, Heneke asks us to find our own way through. Time of the Wolf is Haneke's most intense film, and also his most hopeful."--Container

Satansbraten by Rainer Werner Fassbinder( Visual )

Poète endetté ayant connu à la fin des années 60 une reconnaissance de courte durée, Walter Kranz vit avec une femme irascible et un frère idiot. Obsédé par la page blanche, il se prend par narcissisme pour Stefan George, un poète symboliste, et s'applique durablement à l'imiter...Film le plus cynique, le plus drôle et le plus impertinent de Fassbinder. Ici le cinéaste allemand bâtit une comédie noire sur l'artiste face au culte de l'individualisme et révèle un sens inouï de l'autodérision en se jouant de Stefan George, poète homosexuel du vingtième siècle

Funny games( Visual )

2 editions published in 2019 in German and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michael Haneke's most notorious production, Funny Games spares no detail in its depiction of the agony of a bourgeois family held captive at their vacation home by a pair of white-gloved young men. In a series of escalating 'games,' the sadistic duo subject their victims to unspeakable physical and psychological torture over the course of a night. A home-invasion thriller in which the game's threat of bloodshed is made stomach-churningly real, the film ratchets up shocks even as its executioners interrupt the action to address the audience, drawing attention to the way that cinema milks pleasure from pain and stokes our appetite for atrocity. With this controversial treatise on violence and entertainment, Haneke issued a summation of his cinematic philosophy, implicating his audience in a spectacle of unbearable cruelty"--Container

Der Film beruht auf dem 1. Band der Romanfolge von Lisa Tetzner. Er soll nach den Vorstellungen der Filmemacher "den Zugang und die Beschäftigung mit Fragen und Problemen ermöglichen, die an den Schnittpunkten zwischen gesellschaftlich-politischen Ereignissen und der persönlichen Welt auftreten. An den Folgen, die dieses für das Zusammenleben der Menschen hatte, zeigt sich, welcher Art die nationalsozialistische Herrschaft war."
