Nuit et brouillard = Night and fog by Alain Resnais( Visual )

20 editions published between 1955 and 2014 in French and English and held by 1,842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Called the greatest film of all time by director Francois Truffaut, this legendary documentary from 1955, was directed by Alain Resnais, one of the pivotal figures in the 'New Wave' that revolutionised French cinema in the 1950s. Though only thirty minutes in length, the film is devastating in its impact. Night and Fog refers to the arrival of prisoners in Auschwitz under the cover of darkness and also the ultimate failure of the Nazis at Nuremberg to take responsibility for it. Written by Jean Cayrol, a holocaust survivor, and poetically narrated by Michel Bouquet, its gruesome images seem like a surreal nightmare."--Kanopy

On Capri, an Italian crew makes a German film of Homer's Odyssey; Fritz Lang directs with American money. Prokosch, the producer, with his sneer and red Alfa, holds art films in contempt and hires writer Javal to help Lang commercialize the picture. Against this backdrop, Javal's marriage to Camille, a young former typist, disintegrates. It opens with the couple talking in bed, she asking assurance that he finds her attractive. Later that day he introduces her to Prokosch, and, unawares, blunders unforgivably. The rest of the film portrays her, in their apartment and in public, expressing her hurt and change of heart and his slow grasp of the source of her contempt
