"In his ruthlessly clear-eyed final film, French master Robert Bresson pushed his unique blend of spiritual rumination and formal rigor to a new astringency. Transposing a Tolstoy novella to contemporary Paris, L'argent follows a counterfeit bill as it originates in a schoolboy prank, then circulates like a virus among the corrupt and the virtuous alike before landing with a young truck driver, leading him to incarceration and violence"--Container

"[A] visceral plunge into the life of a famous torero played by real-life bullfighting legend Miguel Mateo, known as Miguelin. Charting his rise and fall with a single-minded focus on the bloody business at hand, the film is at once gritty and operatic, placing the viewer right in the thick of the ring's action, as close to death as possible. ... [T]his is a not just an electrifying drama but also a profound and moving inquiry into a violent world and it's perhaps the greatest bullfighting movie ever made."--Container

6 editions published between 1968 and 1995 in Italian and English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The decline and decomposition of the Essenbecks, a powerful German industrial family in the 1930s, is linked to wider developments at a climactic moment in history - the rise of Naziism. The movement of social forces is meant to be reflected in individuals. The film attempts to operate simultaneously on three levels: history, operatic drama (the original title Gotterdammerung invoked Wagner) and myth (Macbeth, Hamlet, Orestes), a striving for monumentality. Nowell Smith suggests that the members of the Essenbeck family are inadequate as emblems of the social forces then at work in Germany. 'In the last analysis the Essenbecks are only the Essenbecks' so that the film, conceived as tragedy, ends as grotesque - 'a void'
