Carancho by Pablo Trapero ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2011 in Spanish and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
22 deaths a day, 683 a month, over 8,000 a year, 100,000 over the last decade. In Argentina, traffic accidents are decimating those 35 and under. Festering beneath Argentina's crime-plagued, class-divided society is the quasi-lawless realm of motor vehicle accidents and their aftermath. Sosa is an ambulance-chasing lawyer. He's lost his license, so now he works the late-night streets of Buenos Aires, signing up injured clients for a predatory firm that will pay them perhaps a quarter, or a fifth, of what the insurance companies pay. Luján is an overworked young doctor who takes ambulance shifts for extra money. Her level of sleeplessness and chemical intake renders her less than desirable for performing emergency life-and-death surgery, but to Sosa Luján seems to be a ministering angel who can redeem his sleazoid existence. While Luján and Sosa can fall in love, the more vital question is can they escape the grim logic of their situation, evade responsibility for their own actions, and outrun a machine determined to destroy them?

Sat pralāt Tropical malady ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in Thai and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Tropical malady" is two distinct halves, divided into two complementary and wholly necessary pieces. The first half is a love story. A young soldier, Keng (Banlop Lō̜mnō̜i), is assigned to patrol the Thai forests, and he falls for a country boy, Tong (Sakdā Kǣobūadī), a worker in a rural Thai village's ice plant. In the second half, that love story has been swallowed by a folk tale, in which the spirit of a man has found its way into the body of a tiger. A soldier patrols the forest, looking for a villager who has disappeared while a voice-over relates the story of a shaman who has the power to turn himself into a tiger. Is the soldier Keng? Is the missing villager--or, stranger yet, the tiger--Tong?
