L'armée des ombres Army of shadows by Jean-Pierre Melville ( Visual )
13 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
L'Armee des Ombres is a stark and unvarnished story about Resistance fighters in Vichy France in 1942-43 when the French leadership allowed the Nazis to occupy the country. The members of this army are cold, hungry, desperate men and women, with false names and no addresses, who can be betrayed in an instant by a traitor or an accident. They know they will probably die. A meditation on the nature of resistance and the price of courage, these heroes can save their own country only by cutting themselves apart from it. Entangled in the political turmoil engulfing France in the wake of May '68--as a result received poorly there--the film was not distributed in the US until 2006

Le Doulos by Jean-Pierre Melville ( Visual )
41 editions published between 1962 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As the title screens explain, in gangster slang, 'doulos' means 'hat.' In the slang shared by criminal and police, 'doulos' also designates the person who wears it: the informer. Through shadowy back streets on the edge of Paris, an ingenious cat and mouse game is played as two underworld characters, seemingly working against each other, find themselves in a deadly entanglement of their own making but infinitely larger than both of them. Faugel, a thief recently released from prison, and Silien, Faugel's best friend and all-around suspicious character, are up against shady nightclub owner Nuttheccio, and the police's Capt. Clain, ruthless as any criminal. The hapless gangsters know two things: their sense of honor is the only thing they can take with them to the grave, and that date with the grave is coming all too soon. By Jean-Pierre Melville, French poet of crime cinema, full of shadows, night, trench coats, guns, tough guys, cigarettes, slinky dames, cocktail bars, crooked cops, betrayal, and loot
La ronde by Max Ophuls ( Visual )
22 editions published between 1950 and 2012 in French and Undetermined and held by 422 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

Henri-Georges Clouzot's Inferno a master filmmaker's unfinished dream ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the great, unfinished works in film history, Inferno, by Henri-Georges Clouzot was an audaciously experimental film with a virtually unlimited budget that was stopped only three weeks into production. Working closely with Clouzot's widow, Serge Bromberg and Ruxandra Medrea reconstruct Clouzot's original vision, filling and explaining the gaps with new interviews, re-enactments and Clouzot's own notes and storyboards, delivering an in-depth look at the masterpiece that might have been

L'Enfer d'Henri-Georges Clouzot by Serge Bromberg ( Visual )
6 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in French and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
En 1964, Henri-Georges Clouzot choisit Romy Schneider, 26 ans, et Serge Reggiani, 42 ans, pour être les vedettes de L'Enfer. Un projet énigmatique et insolite, un budget illimité, un film qui devait être un "événement" cinématographique à sa sortie. Mais après 3 semaines de tournage, le drame. Le projet est interrompu, et les images que l'on disait "incroyables" ne seront jamais dévoilées. Ces images, oubliées depuis un demi-siècle, ont été retrouvées et elles sont plus époustouflantes que la légende l'avait prédit. Elles racontent un film unique, la folie et la jalousie filmées en caméra subjective, l'histoire d'un tournage maudit et celle d'Henri-Georges Clouzot qui avait laissé libre cours à son génie de cinéaste. Jamais Romy n'a été aussi belle et hypnotique. Jamais un auteur n'aura été aussi proche et fusionnel avec le héros qu'il a inventé. Serge Bromberg et Ruxandra Medrea réussissent ici une "recomposition" de l'oeuvre disparue, créant un nouveau film qui raconte l'histoire de ce naufrage magnifique et qui permet au projet d'exister enfin
The leopard Il gattopardo ( Visual )

Luchino Visconti's The Leopard (Il Gattopardo) is an epic on the grandest possible scale.

Burt Lancaster stars as the aging prince watching his culture and fortune wane in the face of a new generation, represented by his upstart nephew (Alain Delon) and his beautiful fiancee (Claudia Cardinale)

Der Teufel mit der weißen Weste ( Visual )
7 editions published between 1962 and 2010 in German and Undetermined and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Die Gangsterfilme des Regisseurs Jean-Pierre Melville begründeten Anfang der 60er Jahre ein eigenes Universum, das sich weniger an der Realität als an fernöstlicher Philosophie orientierte. Melvilles Gangster sind keine ordinären Verbrecher; sie sind einsame Einzelkämpfer, deren strikter Moralkodex an die japanischen Samurai erinnert. Wie diese folgen sie unbeirrbar ihrem inneren moralichen Auftrag - wenn es sein muß, bis in den Tod. Lange vor Alain Delon ("Der eiskalte Engel") verkörperte der damalige "Nouvelle vague"-Star Jean-Paul Belmondo den mythischen Großstadt- Samurai in "Der Teufel mit der weißen Weste". Als Gangster Silien wird er von der Pariser Unterwelt wegen der Freundschaft zu einem Inspektor für einen Polizeispitzel gehalten. Der Verdacht gegen Belmondo verstärkt sich noch, als ein Raubzug seines Kumpels Maurice missglückt. Um sich an dem vermeintlichen Täter zu rächen, setzt Maurice einen professionellen Killer auf seinen Freund an. Jean-Pierre Melville inszenierte seinen Schwarzweißfilm 1962 als düster-melancholische Parabel. Ein Märchen aus einer kalten Unterwelt-Hölle, in dem die Grenzen zwischen Gut und Böse verwischen, bis die Akteure mit unwiderruflichen Maßnahmen Klarheit schaffen
