Les bas-fonds = The lower depths by Jean Renoir( Visual )

14 editions published between 1936 and 2021 in French and English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Lower Depths (Renior)' is part of a series of films from Criterion Collection/Janus Films. Jean Renoir and Akira Kurosawa, two of cinema's greatest directors, transform Maxim Gorky's classic proletariat play The Lower Depths in their own ways for their own times. Renoir, working amidst the rise of Hitler and the Popular Front in France, had need to take license with the dark nature of Gorky's source material, softening its bleak outlook. Kurosawa, firmly situated in the postwar world, found little reason for hope. He remained faithful to the original with its focus on the conflict between illusion and reality-a theme he would return to over and over again. Working with their most celebrated actors (Gabin with Renoir; Mifune with Kurosawa), each film offers a unique look at cinematic adaptation-where social conditions and filmmaking styles converge to create unique masterpieces.

Au hasard Balthazar = Balthazar by Robert Bresson( Visual )

36 editions published between 1965 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A profound masterpiece from one of the most revered filmmakers in the history of cinema, director Robert Bresson's Au hasard Balthazar follows the donkey Balthazar as he is passed from owner to owner, some kind and some cruel but all with motivations beyond his understanding. Balthazar, whose life parallels that of his first keeper, Marie, is truly a beast of burden, suffering the sins of man. But despite his powerlessness, he accepts his fate nobly. Through Bresson's unconventional approach to composition, sound, and narrative, this seemingly simple story becomes a moving parable of purity and transcendence

Panique( Visual )

2 editions published in 2018 in French and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Proud, eccentric, and antisocial, Monsieur Hire (Michel Simon) has always kept to himself. But after a woman turns up dead in the Paris suburb where he lives, he feels drawn to a pretty young newcomer to town (Viviane Romance). [He] discovers that his neighbors are only too ready to suspect the worst of him, and is framed for the murder. Based on a novel by Georges Simenon, Julien Duvivier's first film after his return to France from Hollywood finds the acclaimed poetic realist applying his consummate craft to darker, moodier ends. Propelled by its two deeply nuanced lead performances, the tensely noirish Panique exposes the dangers of the knives-out mob mentality, delivering as well a pointed allegory for the behavior of Duvivier's countrymen during the war"--Container

Allegro appassionato by Jean Wiéner( Book )

8 editions published between 1978 and 2012 in French and Undetermined and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Témoin et acteur essentiel de la musique au XXe siècle, Jean Wiéner a écrit à la fin de sa vie des mémoires fort éclairants sur l'époque qu'il a traversée et qu'il a contribué à façonner. Pianiste de formation classique, ouvert au jazz, il anime le Bœuf sur le toit, où se rencontre le Tout-Paris des années 1920. Aux Concerts-salade qu'il invente, on entend Cole Porter, Ravel et Gershwin, Stravinsky et Falla et, pour la première fois en France, le Pierrot lunaire de Schoenberg. En duo avec le pianiste Clément Doucet, il parcourt le monde et laisse des enregistrements mémorables. Son œuvre de compositeur s'étend d'un Concerto franco-américain ou de sonates pour piano à de la musique de film qui lui vaut une immense notoriété (l'air d'harmonica deTouchez pas au grisbi est dans toutes les mémoires). Son ouverture d'esprit, sa générosité qui lui ont fait franchir les cloisonnements se retrouvent dans cet Allegro appassionato , où l'on entend la voix d'un musicien et d'un homme fraternel
