Tanz der Vampire ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1966 and 2005 in German and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Das Böse bedroht die Welt: In den finsteren Karpaten feilen blutsaugende Vampire schon ihre Eckzähne. Der zauselige alte Professor Ambrosius von der Universität Königsberg und sein hasenfüßiger Assistent Alfred reisen daher ins tiefverschneite Herz der Finsternis, um den Schrecken mit Knoblauch und Kruzifix zu bannen. Doch auf dem Schloß des Obervampirs Graf Krolock und seines schwulen Sohnes Herbert entwickeln sich die Dinge zu einer großen Katastrophe, an deren Verlauf auch die schöne Wirtstocher Sarah nicht ganz unschuldig ist. Roman Polanskis erste Hollywood-Produktion wurde in Europa ein Klassiker, und in den USA aufgrund "entstellender Kürzungen" (so der Regisseur) zum Flop. Polanski hatte ganze sieben Monate als Regisseur, Drehbuchautor, Koproduzent und Hauptdarsteller gearbeitet. Seine Mammutarbeit hat sich gelohnt: "Tanz der Vampire" ist ein ausgesuchtes Panoptikum skurriler Karikaturen und eine liebevolle Hommage an das gute, alte Horrorkino. Polanski führt uns zu der Erkenntnis, daß der Teufel immer im Detail steckt und daß die Welt nun mal nicht zu retten ist. Schon gar nicht, wenn die edlen Retter ständig über ihre eigenen Füße stolpern
Do widzenia, do jutra-- ( Visual )
12 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in Polish and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The film uses a loose narrative style akin to the French New Wave to tell a touching and visually stunning story of a fleeting love affair between a handsome Polish actor and a whimsical French girl. The film stars Polish icon Zbigniew Cybulski (known as the 'Polish James Dean') and has a young Roman Polanski in the cast
Ambulance ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2007 in No Linguistic content and Polish and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this haunting short fiction film, a group of Jewish children and their teacher are herded into an ambulance by Nazis; the vehicle, ordinarily representing comfort and safety, becomes the group's death chamber. Morgenstern's presentation of the incident serves as a metaphor for the horror of the Holocaust and provides a powerful trigger for discussion of the disturbing issues raised by the film. The figure of the children's teacher specifically parallels Janusz Korčak (1879-1942), a famous Jewish educator who ran an orphanage in the Warsaw Ghetto and died with his young charges at Treblinka

The fearless vampire killers, or, Pardon me, but your teeth are in my neck by Roman Polanski ( Visual )
6 editions published between 1967 and 2004 in French and English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Polanski described this mixture of parody, horror film and fairytale as "a cartoon with people". Although his film is at core voyeuristically heterosexual, Polanski makes the homoerotic aspect of the vampire film explicit. The high point is the macabrely beautiful great vampire ball
Faim by Henning Carlsen ( Visual )

Contre la montre... Jerzy Skolimowski, peintre, poète, cinéaste by Damien Bertrand ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2007 in Polish and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
En exergue, une déclaration de Jerzy Skolimowski, dans laquelle il exprime la douleur de lexil. Linterdiction de "Haut les mains !" lobligea, en effet, à quitter définitivement la Pologne en 1967 et à vivre "en gitan". L'interview du cinéaste, peintre et poète, cadré en plan serré devant l'une de ses toiles, est entrecoupée d'extraits de ses films et de lectures en voix off de ses poèmes. Si lentretien naborde pas la question de lexil, elle le vêt néanmoins dun voile d'un noir identique aux toiles du cinéaste, découvertes en fin de documentaire dans une exposition. L'?uvre multiforme de Skolimowski n'est pas pour autant tournée vers la mort ; à limage de Jeremy Irons, qui se démène pour manger à sa faim dans "Travail au noir" (1982), l'artiste décrit avant tout sa lutte pour exister. Avec cet ancien boxeur, la métaphore est souvent sportive. Il évoque ainsi le combat mené contre son côté sombre et la vie qui court trop vite : très beau, ce moment où il se met en garde, les poings serrés, et regarde la caméra dun ?il torve. De même, il entend saisir les moments de l'existence où tout peut encore basculer. Pied de nez au critique du "New York Times" qui avait éreinté "Rysopis" en 1965, le documentaire en cite intégralement la séquence la plus polémique, une longue descente dans des escaliers où le personnage peut encore décider de ne pas sengager dans larmée
