Dort trifft er auf ihren eifersüchtigen Ehemann (Charlie Chaplin) und ihre Tochter (Shirley Temple). Die Kommune-Mitglieder beschließen, die größte Show der Welt auf die Beine zu stellen, doch je näher der Premierentag rückt, desto mehr kriselt es in der Monroe-Chaplin-Ehe.

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.
