Perfume : the Story of a Murderer by Tom Tykwer( Visual )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 942 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1738 in Paris, a baby is born under a fishmonger's bloody table in a marketplace and abandoned. Orphaned, passed over to the monks as a charity case, already there is something about the tiny infant that is unsettling. No one will look after him; he is somehow too demanding and, even more disturbing, something is missing: he doesn't smell the way a baby should; indeed, he has no scent at all. Yet Jean-Baptiste Grenouille clings stubbornly to life, because he possesses an absolute sense of smell, and with it, he can read the world, discovering truths that elude ordinary men. As he leaves childhood behind and comes to understand his terrible uniqueness, his obsession becomes the quest to identify, and then to isolate, the perfect scent--that of life itself. Grenouille embarks on a monstrous quest, until the frenzy of his final triumph explodes in all its horrifying consequences

In Germany in 1967, murderous bomb attacks, the threat of terrorism, and the fear of the enemy inside are rocking the very foundations of the still-fragile German democracy. The radicalized children of the Nazi generation, led by Andreas Baader, Ulrike Meinhof, and Gudrun Ensslin, are fighting a violent war against what they perceive as the new face of fascism. The man who understands them is also their hunter, the head of the German police force, Horst Herold

Zazie dans le métro( Visual )

8 editions published between 1960 and 2011 in French and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zazie is an energetic, saucy little girl from the suburbs who comes to Paris with her mother Jeanne for the weekend. Jeanne has an urgent appointment with her lover, so Uncle Gabby will be looking after Zazie. Zazie particularly wants to ride the Metro--the subway--but the train staff is on strike. So after the obligatory sightseeing trip to the Eiffel Tower, Zazie loses her uncle and embarks on a series of madcap, rather Rabelaisian adventures. While visually borrowing from silent films and cartoons, there is quite a lot of humor, social satire, cultural and linguistic commentary (drawn directly from the novel) that is incomprehensible without a thorough knowledge of French history and culture in the post-war period. To the average American viewer, it is best approached as a surrealistic, farcical slice of French life and enjoyed accordingly

Calcutta by Louis Malle( Visual )

4 editions published between 1969 and 2007 in French and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When he was cutting PHANTOM INDIA, Louis Malle found that the footage shot in CALCUTTA was so diverse, intense, and unforgettable that it deserved its own film. The result, released theatrically, is at times shocking - a chaotic portrait of a city racked with social and political turmoil"--Container
God's country by Louis Malle( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in French and English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1979, Louis Malle traveled into the heart of Minnesota to capture the everyday lives of the men and women of a prosperous farming community. He returned six years later, during Ronald Reagan's second term, to find drastic economic decline. Free of stereotypes about America's heartland, God's Country, commissioned for American public television, is a stunning work of emotional and political clarity." -- container
