"A bold trio of stories about love and loss ... [that] was a defining event of the art-house boom of the 90s. The films are named for the colors of the French flag and stand for the tenets of the French Revolution: liberty, equality, and fraternity--but that hardly explains their enigmatic beauty and rich humanity. Set in Paris, Warsaw, and Geneva, and ranging from tragedy to comedy, Blue, White, and Red ... examine a group of ambiguously interconnected people experiencing profound personal disruptions"--Container

"En 1988, Krzysztof Kieślowski (La Double vie de Véronique, Trois couleurs : Bleu, Blanc, Rouge) réalise pour la télévision polonaise un cycle de 10 films inspirés des dix commandements de l'Ancien Testament. Propulsant son auteur vers une reconnaissance internationale, cette œuvre culte a bouleversé la critique et exercé une influence majeure sur de nombreux réalisateurs contemporains. Vingt ans après la disparition d'un des plus grands cinéastes du XXe siècle, Le Décalogue, ici présenté dans sa version restaurée, frappe aujourd'hui par sa modernité. Comment réagir face au mensonge, à l'adultère, au meurtre ? Kieślowski filme l'indicible, le pressentiment, l'émotion, le doute, et pose la question universelle de la responsabilité et de la place de l'homme dans la société" (source : jaquette)

Die Vermessung der Welt by Detlev Buck( Visual )

4 editions published in 2013 in German and Undetermined and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Die Vermessung der Welt' ist ein bildgewaltiges Kinoabenteuer über einen Naturforscher und einen Mathematiker. Zwei Leben verbinden sich zu einer Geschichte über Leidenschaft, Einsamkeit, Liebe und Fortschritt. Carl Friedrich Gauß und Alexander von Humboldt geben sich nicht zufrieden damit, was sie sind, sondern kämpfen besessen und beseelt für die Erkenntnis, der eine im Urwald, der andere am Schreibtisch. Aus Genies werden Menschen, wenn sie der Liebe begegnen. Gauß kann seinen Gefühlen nachgeben - anders als Humboldt, der dies erst in der Begegnung mit Gauß zulässt. Ihr Zusammentreffen beim Naturforscherkongress scheint in eine Katastrophe zu eskalieren, mündet aber in eine Befreiung."--Container
