Cyrano de Bergerac by Franco Alfano( Visual )

87 editions published between 1989 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cyrano, the 17th century Gascon swordsman and braggart, whose unsightly nose prevents him from confessing his love for his cousin Roxane, has a gentler poetic side to his nature which he expresses in love letters to his cousin in the name of the object of her affections, the inarticulate Christian de Neuvillette. Rappeneau retains the theatrical sweep of Rostand's play (the rhythm of the play's rhyming couplets is maintained in the film and Anthony Burgess's subtitles) while using the resources of the cinema to both choreograph and orchestrate the action in synchronisation with the dialogue declaimed in a mannered style evocative of the 17th century. Depardieu's vehemence is harnessed to playing Cyrano 'as an almost elemental being' to quote one critic

One of Buñuel's most vigorous critiques of Catholic doctrine, The Milky Way is a picaresque tale about a pair of scraggly pilgrims who set off from Paris to experience an age old European tradition, the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. In the course of their journey, they traverse not only space, but time, traveling back in history to bear witness to Jesus' speech at the wedding in Cana, as well as remarks by the Virgin Mary about her son's grooming habits. Before the pilgrimage comes to an end, both the Devil himself and the Marquis de Sade make an appearance. Discussions of the articles of faith include the observations of a rural police inspector, whose skepticism about the nature of the Eucharist leads him to conclude, "You'll never convince me that the body of Christ can be enclosed in a piece of bread!"
