Most widely held works by Maurice Bénichou
Caché = Hidden by Michael Haneke( Visual )

67 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A series of anonymous videotapes and drawings unsettle a bourgeois family and as they get closer to solving the mystery of who is sending them, unpleasant secrets from the past rear their heads in a particularly extreme way. The film is absorbing, although at times slow moving and on another level it could indeed be viewed as a symbolic allegory about French/Arab and The West/Islam relations in general

This rediscovery of his family and observation of the teeming streets outside his window give Pierre hope, and a new sense of how he might spend the time still left to him. A story about the middle-class and bourgeois, immigrants and students, fashion models and the homeless, and all the lovers and strangers whose paths could cross and change in Paris

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Composed almost entirely of brilliantly shot, single-take vignettes focusing on characters connected to one seemingly minor incident on a Paris street, Haneke's film, with an outstanding international cast is a revelatory take on racial inequality and the failure of communication in today's increasingly diverse European landscape
Le temps du loup = Time of the wolf by Michael Haneke( Visual )

3 editions published in 2004 in French and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An extremely timely and prescient piece of social commentary, Time of the Wolf follows a family's difficult journey immediately after an unknown apocalyptic event. Haneke never tells us what happened, or where, or when, but instead puts us directly into the terrifying aftermath, with all of its confusion, uncertainty, and danger. As all social laws and codes are suddenly overturned, Heneke asks us to find our own way through. Time of the Wolf is Haneke's most intense film, and also his most hopeful."--Container

La naissance de l'impressionnisme Manet, Monet, Renoir( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 in French and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

2e film: "Un bal populaire à l'enseigne des moulins de la Butte Montmartre. Une joyeuse foule d'un dimanche de l'été 1876. Il n'en fallait pas plus à Renoir pour faire de son tableau un manifeste de la nouvelle peinture.
