Le dernier des injustes = The last of the unjust by Claude Lanzmann( Visual )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in French and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1975, in Rome, Claude Lanzmann filmed a series of interviews with Benjamin Murmelstein, the last President of the Jewish Council in the Theresienstadtghetto in Czechoslovakia, the only "Elder of the Jews" (according to Nazi terminology) not to have been killed during the war. A rabbi in Vienna, following the annexation of Austria by Germany in 1938, Murmelstein fought bitterly with Adolf Eichmann, week after week for seven years, managing to help around 121,000 Jews leave the country, and preventing the liquidation of the ghetto. 2012. Claude Lanzmann, at 87 - without masking anything of the passage of time on men, but showing the incredible permanence of the locations involved - exhumes these interviews shot in Rome, returning to Theresienstadt, the town "given to the Jews by Hitler", a so-called model ghetto, but a ghetto of deceit chosen by Adolf Eichmann to dupe the world. We discover the extraordinary personality of Benjamin Murmelstein: a man blessed with a dazzling intelligence and a true courage, which, along with an unrivaled memory, makes him a wonderfully wry, sardonic and authentic storyteller. Through these three periods, from Nisko in Poland to Theresienstadt, and from Vienna to Rome, the film provides an unprecedented insight into the genesis of the Final Solution. It reveals the true face of Eichmann, and exposes without artifice the savage contradictions of the Jewish Councils
Love comes lately( Visual )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on three short stories by ISaac Bashevis Singer (Yentl), Love Comes Lately braids fiction, fantasy, autobiography into a bittersweet comedy-drama pitting the self-reneweing power of male ego and libido against the inevitable physical decline of age. Though anchored in a long-time relationship with Reisel (Cheers and Taxi's Rhea Pearlman), octogenarian author Max Kohn (Otto Tausig - Old Love) uses his frequent book tours as opportunities to let erotic imagination take flight. There are fantasy flings with a needy widow (Caroline Aaron) and a Cuban housekeeper (Elizabeth Pena - Lone Star), which then give way to a real-life intimate encounter with a former student (Barbara Hershey - The Stunt Man). Finally, a fondly recalled but painful interlude with a free spirited woman (Tovah Feldshuh - Kissing Jessica Stein) challenges Max's peace of mind even as it feeds his work. In Love Comes Lately, writer-director Jan Schütte "has gone above and beyond the call of dutiful adaptation" (Andrew Sarris, The New York Observer)."--Container

Le dernier de injustes( Visual )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in French and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1975. In Rome, Claude Lanzmann filmed a series of interviews with Benjamin Murmelstein, the last President of the Jewish Council in the Theresienstadt ghetto in Czechoslovakia, the only Elder of the Jews not to have been killed during the war. Murmelstein is a figure despised by many of the ghetto's surviving inhabitants even though, as a rabbi in Vienna, following the annexation of Austria by Germany in 1938, Murmelstein fought bitterly with Adolf Eichmann, week after week for seven years, managing to help around 121,000 Jews leave the country. Intercut with footage of Lanzmann himself revisiting specific sites in Vienna and the Czech Republic, the brilliant Murmelstein -- sometimes excitedly but more often calmly -- explains his actions and precisely defines his paradoxical role in history
Beethoven's hair( Visual )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beethoven's Hair traces the unlikely journey of a lock of hair cut from Beethoven's corpse and unravels the mystery of his tortured life and death. The film begins in modern times when a pair of Beethoven enthusiasts, Ira Brilliant and Che Guevara, purchase the hair at a Sotheby's auction. As the story unfolds, it follows the past generations of owners, culminating in the futuristic science that reveals Beethoven's 'medical secret'. Set to a lush score of some of Beethoven's most glorious music, the film explores the world of forensic testing in sharp relief against the romance of 19th century Vienna and the horrors of 20th century Nazi Germany. Based on Russell Martin's bestselling book, this is the story of characters separated by time and place, whose only connection is an odd relic that touched each of their lives. Along the way Beethoven's Hair sheds new light upon the cause of Beethoven's various maladies, including his deafness, as well as accounting for his volatile personality and perhaps even the nature of his art"--Cover
