La ronde by Max Ophuls( Visual )

16 editions published between 1950 and 2012 in French and Undetermined and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Ronde translates as 'the round' which can refer to the policeman's beat, a circle of dancers, or a carousel, all of which this circular collection of interconnected short stories resembles. Each scene is built around a specific pair, and when one member of the pair breaks away from his or her lover, he or she then moves on to the next, introducing the partner that will lead on to the next pair, and so on until we are back where we started. Many of these lovers are seeking something they've lost in arms that look familiar but that belong to strangers. La ronde is the bittersweet note sounded by the circular nostalgia of the heart
Fanfan la Tulipe by Christian-Jaque( Visual )

26 editions published between 1951 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charming rogue Fanfan flits from one adventure to the other after evading marriage by joining the army in the midst of the Seven Years' War. He's motivated less by patriotism than by a consultation with Adeline, a voluptuous phony fortuneteller who promises that he will find glory in the army, even win the hand of King Louis XV's daughter. Herself the daughter of a recruiting sergeant, Adeline is a charlatan, but the irrepressible Fanfan sets about fulfilling his "destiny," even as his would-be soothsayer finds herself falling in love with him. Flirting and fighting, trouble reliably finds Fanfan, who just as reliably evades it

Le narrateur est un aviateur qui, à la suite d'une panne de moteur, a dû se poser en catastrophe dans le désert du Sahara et tente seul de réparer son avion. Le lendemain de son atterrissage forcé, il est réveillé par une petite voix qui lui demande: "S'il vous plaît ... dessine-moi un mouton!" Jour après jour, le petit prince raconte son histoire au narrateur. Il vit sur une autre planète, l'astéroïde B612, "à peine plus grande qu'une maison". Les activités du petit prince consistent essentiellement à ramoner les volcans et à couper les baobabs pour qu'ils n'envahissent pas sa planète. Après ces activités, le petit prince va contempler un coucher de soleil; son astéroïde est si petit qu'il lui suffit de déplacer sa chaise de quelques mètres pour cela: pas besoin d'aller loin pour trouver le bonheur. Le petit prince est une œœuvre de langue française, la plus connue d'Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
