Soul kitchen by Fatih Akin( Visual )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Soul Kitchen" is Zinos Kazantsakis's humdrum restaurant in a working-class neighborhood of Hamburg. The food is mostly frozen, unceremoniously zapped in the microwave, or thrown into a vat of bubbling grease. He loves his restaurant and his girlfriend Nadine, even after she leaves him for an assignment in China. Wanting to liven up the restaurant, Zinos hires an out-of-work three-star chef, lets his ex-con brother Ilias spin records, and seeks out new clientele. Soon Soul Kitchen is reborn as Hamburg's newest hot spot. On a whim, Zinos flies to China to rekindle his relationship with Nadine leaving his brother in charge. There is also a slipped disc, a hard-drinking, chain-smoking waitress, a scheming real-estate developer, a Turkish "physio-healer," and a high stakes poker game in the mix. But the film is not about food or love; it's about family, life and human relationships, with a lingering nostalgia for a time when eating out implied getting dead drunk, stuffing one's face with cholesterol and kissing across the table

The experiment by Oliver Hirschbiegel( Visual )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

4000 DM für zwei Wochen? Leicht verdientes Geld, dachte sich Taxifahrer Tarek, als er die Anzeige für ein psychologisches Experiment in der Zeitung sah. Bei diesem Versuch sollen insgesamt 20 Personen, aufgeteilt in Wärter und Gefangene, in einem simulierten Gefängnis leben. Alle Beteiligten sollen sich dabei möglichst realistisch benehmen, doch eins stellt Versuchsleiter Professor Thon von Anfang an klar: Gewalt wird nicht geduldet! Darüber hinaus gibt es einen umfangreichen Katalog von weiteren Regeln. Doch was als harmloses Spiel begann, entwickelt schnell eine gefährliche Eigendynamik, die bald auch das psychologische Beobachterteam überfordert: Die Teilnehmer nehmen ihre Rollen sehr ernst, und irgendwann wird die Einhaltung der "Regeln" wichtiger als gesunder Menschenverstand und Humanität. - Und mittendrin der freiheitsliebende und eigenwillige Tarek

Échos d'un sombre empire ; Leçons de ténèbres by Werner Herzog( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in German and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Échos d'un sombre empire " (Echos aus einem düsteren Reich) : Jean-Bedel Bokassa, tiran théatral et anthropophage de la République centrafricaine, ne pouvait qu'interesser Herzog : il y a du Aguirre, dans ce simple troufion autoproclamé Empereur. Le héros essentiel de ce film est pourtant ailleurs. Michael Goldsmith, journaliste britannique qui couvrait le couronnement en 1977, fut alors arrêté et torturé. Ce déplacement de personnage est décisif. Herzog est en train de modifier le sens d'un mot essentiel à son oeuvre, "survivant" : il signifiera désormais non plus "surhomme", mais "rescapé" et "témoin". (Source : jaquette)
