Showing clemency to some emirs, he faces treason charges at court. His accuser, Gomez, father of his fiancee, Chimene, dies in the resulting duel. Chimene's avowed vengeance plot fails and Rodrigo is given her hand. When King Ferdinand dies, his kingdom is divided among his three children. Sancho challenges the decision and imprisons Alfonso, who is released by El Cid. Then Sancho is assassinated by an African war-lord. Alfonso now claims that throne, too, and exiles El Cid.

Trafic by Jacques Tati ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Trafic was Jacques Tati's final outing as the bumbling, amiable Monsieur Hulot, one of cinema's most beloved comic screen personas, following his appearance in films such as Les Vacances de M. Hulot, Mon Oncle and Playtime. In Trafic he accompanies his car firm's new vehicle - an absurd Hulot-esque camper van - to a motor show in Amsterdam. This prescient satire on man's obsession with motorised transport mixes wonderful observational comedy with laugh-out-loud moments. Tati's typically subtle choreography of people and objects is a rewarding lesson in how to see the world anew."--from container
