La belle noiseuse by Jacques Rivette( Visual )

79 editions published between 1990 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A painter suffering artistic burnout is inspired by his meeting with Marianne at his Languedoc villa. She is persuaded to pose for him as he attempts to recover the 'masterpiece' he had abandoned ten years earlier. The film becomes a playing out of the process of creation (of a painting/a film), a battle of wills between the artist and his model, the artist's wife (who has been his model) and Marianne's lover. This package contains two versions of the film both prepared by Rivette - the four-hour version more in the nature of a performance piece, which explains the process in exhaustive detail (including the hand of an actual artist, Bernhard Dufour, at work) while the two-hour version (minus Dufour's hand) is brisker, more in the nature of a short story, which provides a different perspective on the relationships

Director Jacques Rivette's feature film adaptation of Diderot's novel was banned in France for two years for its unforgiving representation of Catholic hierarchy. Rivette explores with poetic simplicity the events through which a young woman is forced to take up life in a convent. Freely adapted from the novel, the film tells the story of sixteen year old Suzanne and her inability to comprehend the motiviations of the adults around her, who want to save her and destroy her. After a brief respite while under the tutelage of a sympathetic mother superior, Suzanne is ultimately tormented and abused, culminating in a lengthy sequence in which starved and barefoot, she is left in solitary confinement and driven to near madness. After her escape, she realizes just how unprepared she is for life outside the convent walls and relinquishes her freedom once again, accepting employment in the confines of a bordello
