1 edition published in 2012 in French and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The story of film: an odyssey, written and directed by award-winning film-maker Mark Cousins, is the story of international cinema told through the history of cinematic innovation. Five years in the making, The Story of Film: An Odyssey covers six continents and 12 decades, showing how film-makers are influenced both by the historical events of their times, and by each other. It provides a worldwide guided tour of the greatest movies ever made; an epic tale that starts in nickelodeons and ends as a multi-billion dollar globalised digital industry. Described as a 'love letter' to the movies, Cousins visits the key sites in the history of cinema from Hollywood to Mumbai; from Hitchcock's London to the village where Pather Panchali was shot, and features interviews with legendary filmmakers and actors including Stanley Donen, Kyoko Kagawa, Gus van Sant, Lars Von Trier, Claire Denis, Bernardo Bertolucci, Robert Towne, Jane Campion and Claudia Cardinale

4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In un'anonima città svedese s'intrecciano storie di vite umane alle prese con solitudini e inquietudini, ferocemente ingabbiate in scarse soddisfazioni e mancanze di prospettive future. E allora, in un'atmosfera costantemente rarefatta dalla nebbia densa e dal grigiore metropolitano, si muovono figure diafane, che naufragano all'interno della loro anima incerti su dove andare, cosa fare e perché: c'è la giovane maestra che litiga per motivi futili con il marito, c'è la ragazzina follemente innamorata di un giovane musicista, c'è una donna che sfoga sul compagno e nel bere le sue frustrazioni. Ognuno di loro cerca però di rimanere a galla, di reagire con la musica e con l'autoironia, facendosi quasi caricatura di se stesso e delle sue problematiche esistenziali. (Mymovies)
