Le Charme discret de la bourgeoisie = Discreet charm of the bourgeoisie by Luis Buñuel( Visual )

L'armée des ombres = Army of shadows by Jean-Pierre Melville( Visual )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in French and held by 885 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 vieil homme et l'enfant = The two of us = The old man and the boy by Claude Berri( Visual )

4 editions published in 2007 in French and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Director Claude Berri's introduction on the title screens reads "This film is a true story but seen through the imagination a child particularly sensitive to the tragic events which surrounded him in occupied France. The warm affection of this family of good people who took him in nevertheless leaves him with a certain poetic nostalgia for this time and a deep gratitude toward them." This film is his re-telling and re-creation of the life of a small Jewish boy from in Nazi-occupied Paris, sent by his parents to the countryside to live with an elderly Catholic couple until France's liberation. Forced to hide his identity, eight-year-old Claude bonds with the irascible, staunchly anti-Semitic Grampa, who improbably becomes his friend and confidant

Le Doulos by Jean-Pierre Melville( Visual )

3 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 357 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
Classe tous risques by Claude Sautet( Visual )

Exiled from France for his exploits, underworld kingpin Abel Davos has been living for nearly a decade in Milan, even acquiring a family. In spite of the death sentence hanging over his head, Davos wants to return with them to France. His old mob cronies have gone bourgeois and affluent, reluctant to help, sending just one young thief, Eric Stark, to his aid. An exploration of the importance of loyalty and honor among thieves, this film shows exactly what it is stand-up guys stand up for. Stark is the only one of the Parisian gangsters who understands the code they have forgotten, and does his best to live by it

He finds himself most drawn to a sexually frustrated widow, a borderline heretic whose relationship with her confessor is a confrontation with both God and her own repressed desire. A triumph of mood, setting, and innuendo, Léon Morin, Priest is an irreverent pleasure from one of French cinema's towering virtuosos
Fanfan la Tulipe by Christian-Jaque( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in French and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charming rogue Fanfan flits from one adventure to the other after evading marriage by joining the army in the midst of the Seven Years' War. He's motivated less by patriotism than by a consultation with Adeline, a voluptuous phony fortuneteller who promises that he will find glory in the army, even win the hand of King Louis XV's daughter. Herself the daughter of a recruiting sergeant, Adeline is a charlatan, but the irrepressible Fanfan sets about fulfilling his "destiny," even as his would-be soothsayer finds herself falling in love with him. Flirting and fighting, trouble reliably finds Fanfan, who just as reliably evades it
