Ohayō = Good morning by Yasujirō Ozu( Visual )

16 editions published between 1959 and 2017 in Japanese and held by 581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story of two young boys in suburban Tokyo who take a vow of silence after their parents refuse to buy them a television set. Shot from the perspective of the petulant brothers, GOOD MORNING is an enchantingly satirical portrait of family life that gives rise to gags about romance, gossip, and the consumerism of modern Japan"--Container
The Bible : in the beginning by John Huston( Visual )

15 editions published between 1986 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the greatest pieces of footage in cinema has Huson standing as Noah to watch the animal parade leaving the Ark. Two shots alone give the measure of the picture, the slow dolly-in POV as Eve approaches the tree, and the long take on Cain which begins as a high crane shot and ends as a low up-angle. The last shot, an extreme long shot of Abraham and Isaac dancing together after the sacrifice of the ram, is a cinematic shorthand way of indicating the last verse of the O.T. It helps to know the stories to be able to understand Huston's directing genius. Huston created a new dispesation of flim grammar which has been much copied

"Au début du siècle, Tome nait à la campagne dans la pauvreté la plus totale. Décidée à changer sa condition et à connaitre la fortune par tous les moyens, elle part pour la ville.Son destin suit celui de son pays dont elle subit les bouleversements de front : la guerre et la reconstruction via l'occupation américaine. Dans ce contexte, la jeune femme, prête à tout pour réussir, va vendre son corps et entrer dans le milieu de la prostitution....Shôhei Imamura révolutionne le cinéma japonais avec ce chef-d'oeuvre sulfureux dressant le portrait sans concession d'une femme de son temps. Le cinéaste qui scrute le personnage à la loupe, signe une fresque intimiste sur l'histoire et l'évolution de son pays." (Source : jaquette)
