Un long dimanche de fiançailles A very long engagement by Jean-Pierre Jeunet( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in French and English and held by 1,094 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1920, country girl Mathilde is living in Brittany with her aunt and uncle when she learns that her fiancé Manech was one of five French soldiers condemned to a barbarous death by their own side. Court-martialed for intentionally wounding themselves, their punishment is to be thrown into no man's land, unarmed and with their hands tied behind their backs. But Manech may have survived. Hiring a dogged old bird of a private detective and a lawyer to aid her, Mathilde is off on an adventure. She pursues her sleuthing through a flurry of letters, documents, and private interviews--hunting down the soldiers who were in the trenches with Manech--along with their lovers and relatives. She also discovers that she has a sort of doppelgänger: a Corsican prostitute pursuing a parallel investigation for another of the five, and murdering anyone who did her own beloved mate wrong. Mathilde will have to hurry to follow the clues piecing the story together before they are lost forever

"Elf Episoden aus dem Leben von Monsieur Oscar, der von Sonnenaufgang bis Sonnenuntergang in einer weien Stretch-Limousine durch Paris chauffiert wird und dabei jeweils in eine andere Existenz schlüpft [...]. Der hochenergetische Film bietet ein vom Hauptdarsteller Denis Lavant mit beängstigender Präsenz gemeistertes Stakkato voller Einfälle und cinephiler Anspielungen. Er strotzt vor visueller Kraft und Energie und lässt sich als hypnotisch-grotesker Versuch über das Menschsein an der Grenze zu Verfall und Tod interpretieren." [film-dienst.de]

Men in the French Foreign Legion, escaping some personal or legal entanglement, can leave their lives behind and take on a new identity.

La langue ne ment pas by Stan Neumann( Visual )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in French and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le film de Stan Neumann est adapté des journaux de Victor Klemperer, écrits de 1933 à 1945 à Dresde. Victor Klemperer, professeur à l'université de Dresde, est un des rares Juifs allemands à avoir survécu en Allemagne pendant toute la durée du régime hitlérien. Il doit sa survie au courage de sa femme Eva, aryenne selon les critères nazis. La guerre finie, ils retrouvent leur maison à Dresde, désormais en zone d'occupation soviétique. Pendant toute cette période, Victor Klemperer, linguiste, a étudié l'évolution de la langue nazie. Dans son journal, il note que son "travail sur la langue était un moyen de légitime défense, il n'avait rien de scientifique. [Il] moissonnait sans plan préconçu, tout ce qui passait à [sa] portée, au hasard de [ses] lectures, des émissions de radio, des discours beuglés par les haut-parleurs". Son journal est aussi un des témoignages les plus précis et les plus impressionnants sur le destin des Juifs allemands sous le régime nazi. Au péril de sa vie, il note scrupuleusement toutes les mesures, toutes les interdictions, toutes les vexations subies. Il témoigne des "piqûres de moustique", la trame quotidienne de la persécution. En notant "l'interminable addition des brimades et des interdictions, écrit Stan Neumann, il finit par dessiner en creux les véritables figures de la tragédie et du courage." Le travail de Victor Klemperer sur la langue du Troisième Reich sera publié après la guerre sous le titre "LTI (Lingua Tertii Imperii), carnet de notes d'un philologue", constamment réédité depuis. (Résumé de la jacquette)
