Poulet aux prunes = Chicken with plums by Marjane Satrapi( Visual )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For their lovely, yet tragic film, graphic artists Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud reunite for a second story drawn from Satrapi's family's rich history. Instead of an animated feature, like Persepolis, they turn to live action. In pre-revolutionary Tehran, Nasser-Ali Khan (Mathieu Amalric) comes across as a curmudgeon who cares more about his career than his family, but there's more to the musician than meets the eye. With his son's help, he sets out to replace his broken violin, leading to adventures with a mysterious woman (Golshifteh Farahani) and a magical merchant (Jamel Debbouze, delightful), but when no suitable replacement materializes, Nasser announces his plan to pack it in. As he lies in bed, waiting to die, he reflects on incidents involving a judgmental clockmaker (Serge Avedikian) and his headstrong mother (Isabella Rossellini). Then, he meets the Angel of Death (narrator Edouard Baer), who gives him a glance at the fates that await his loved ones, much as in A Christmas Carol (Chiara Mastroianni plays his adult daughter). Meanwhile, his wife (Maria de Medeiros) plies him with delicacies, like chicken with plums, but he insists that death is the only solution, which makes this sound like a grim affair, except Satrapi and Paronnaud find the humor in the scenario and the beauty in the milieu, combining stylized sets and hand-drawn backdrops. Much as with Sean Penn's guitarist in Woody Allen's Sweet and Lowdown, Amalric never strives to make Nasser-Ali likable, but he succeeds in making this stubborn man understandable. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Elvire Jouvet 40 by Benoît Jacquot( Visual )

11 editions published between 1986 and 2013 in French and Undetermined and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Benoît Jacquot filme l'ingénieuse entreprise de Brigitte Jaques qui transpose pour la scène sept leçons données par Louis Jouvet, au conservatoire en 1940, à l'élève Claudia s'exerçant sur le personnage d'Elvire de Dom Juan. Les leçons sont extraites de "Molière et la comédie classique", ouvrage de Louis Jouvet édité chez Gallimard en 1965. À partir du spectacle créé en 1986 au théâtre national de Strasbourg, Benoît Jacquot signe un film éblouissant sur le théâtre et l'apprentissage du métier d'acteur. Philippe Clévenot, projeté dans le personnage de Louis Jouvet aux côtés de son élève Maria de Meideros, exhume l'art et la méthode du maître qui s'attache sans relâche à commenter Molière, en même temps qu'il expose avec lyrisme la pratique de la diction, la respiration, la situation dramatique et "le sentiment". Le film fixe dans le mouvement la rencontre fugitive et énigmatique du mot et du corps. Rencontre d'autant plus boulversante que la guerre sépare le maître de l'élève. Claudia, après avoir reçu le premier prix de sa classe au conservatoire, est interdite de scène du fait de ses origines juives; Jouvet est conduit à s'exiler
