Un condamné à mort s'est échappé, ou, Le vent souffle où il veut = A man escaped, or, the wind blows where it wishes by Robert Bresson( Visual )

La poison( Visual )

4 editions published between 1951 and 2017 in French and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The writer, actor, and director Sacha Guitry emerged from the theater to become one of France's best-known and most inventive filmmakers, and La poison marked his first major collaboration with another titan of the screen, the incomparably expressive Michel Simon. With Guitry's witty dialogue and fleet pacing, this black comedy is the quintessential depiction of a marriage gone sour: after thirty years together, a village gardener (Simon) and his wife (Germaine Reuver) find themselves contemplating how to do away with each other, with the former even planning how he'll negotiate his eventual prison trial. Inspired by Guitry's own post-World War II tangle with the law--a wrongful charge of collaborationism--La poison is a blithely caustic broadside against the French legal system and a society all too eager to capitalize on the misfortunes of others"--Container

Au hasard Balthazar( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in French and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A profound masterpiece from one of the most revered filmmakers in the history of cinema ... follows the donkey Balthazar as he is passed from owner to owner, some kind and some cruel but all with motivations beyond his understanding. Balthazar, whose life parallels that of his first keeper, Marie, is truly a beast of burden, suffering the sins of humankind. But despite his powerlessness, he accepts his fate nobly. Through Bresson's unconventional approach to composition, sound, and narrative, this simple story becomes a moving parable about purity and transcendence."--Container
