La religieuse = the nun by Jacques Rivette( Visual )

41 editions published between 1965 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Director Jacques Rivette's feature film adaptation of Diderot's novel was banned in France for two years for its unforgiving representation of Catholic hierarchy. Rivette explores with poetic simplicity the events through which a young woman is forced to take up life in a convent. Freely adapted from the novel, the film tells the story of sixteen year old Suzanne and her inability to comprehend the motiviations of the adults around her, who want to save her and destroy her. After a brief respite while under the tutelage of a sympathetic mother superior, Suzanne is ultimately tormented and abused, culminating in a lengthy sequence in which starved and barefoot, she is left in solitary confinement and driven to near madness. After her escape, she realizes just how unprepared she is for life outside the convent walls and relinquishes her freedom once again, accepting employment in the confines of a bordello

Der rechtschaffene Händler Michael Kohlhaas macht sich von Brandenburg auf in Richtung Sachsen, um dort Pferde zu verkaufen. Unterwegs werden willkürlich zwei von ihnen als Pfand für einen Passierschein einbehalten.

Der verzweifelte Kampf um Gerechtigkeit endet tragisch. Die Geschichte des Michael Kohlhaas basiert auf einem historischen Fall aus dem 16. Jahrhundert und präsentiert sich als zeitlose Parabel über Unrecht, staatliche Willkür und Widerstand (Quelle: Umschlag)

Eine Frau ist eine Frau( Visual )

19 editions published between 1960 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eine Stripteasetänzerin will unbedingt von ihrem Geliebten ein Kind; weil dieser sich weigert, bittet sie den gemeinsamen Freund, ihren Wunsch zu erfüllen. Godards erster Versuch mit Direktton, Farbe und Cinemascope ist inspiriert vom Musical und von den Hollywoodkomödien der 30er Jahre. Godard kopiert jedoch die Vorbilder nicht naiv, sondern analysiert ihre Elemente (z.B. Musik, Farbe); ihn interessiert die erzählte Geschichte weniger als die Erzählmethode. Daher sprechen die Darsteller bisweilen direkt zum Publikum, daher erscheinen zum erstenmal gedruckte Wörter auf der Leinwand. Trotzdem wurde diese "Idee eines Musicals" (Godard) ein ganz und gar unernster Film. (Lexikon des internationalen Films 2000/2001
