Das Fräulein = Fraulein by Igor Martinović( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ruža left Belgrade more than 25 years ago to seek a new life in Zurich. Now in her fifties, she has completely detached herself from the past. She owns a cafeteria and maintains an orderly, joyless existence. Mila, a waitress there, is a good-humored Croatian woman who also emigrated decades ago, but, unlike Ruža, she dreams of returning to a house on the Croatian coast. Both of them receive a jolt when Ana, a young, itinerant woman who has fled Sarajevo, breezes into the cafeteria looking for work. Ruža hires her but is annoyed by Ana's impulsive and spirited efforts to inject life into the cafeteria. Gradually the acrimony will dissipate, as Ana, who hides a tragic secret under her passionate spirit, begins to thaw Ruža's chill, and their relationship will change both women in ways they never anticipated."

Des bombes, la guerre, des barbus en colère, des femmes voilées en pleurs, des villes détruites: l'Irak d'aujourd'hui dans les médias occidentaux. En comparaison, les images des années 1950 et 1970 forment un contraste étonnant: des films à la musique frivole, des étudiantes tête nue, des hommes élégamment vêtus dans les rues de Bagdad, une ville moderne. Comment en est-on arrivé là? Le réalisateur Samir raconte l'histoire de sa famille iraquienne, une famille de la classe moyenne aujourd'hui dispersée dans le monde entier, entre Auckland, Moscou, Paris, Londres et Buffalo, New York

Der charmante Lebenskünstler Max versucht sich in Zürichs <<Chreis Cheib>> mit Gelegenheitsdiebstählen und kleinen Gaunereien über Wasser zu halten und wird dabei immer wieder von seiner Wohnpartnerin Lizzy, die ihren Lebensunterhalt als Nutte verdient, (finanziell) unterstützt. Max hat zwar dutzende von Ideen, seine Arbeitsscheu bringt ihn aber regelmässig auf Abwege. So nimmt er beispielsweise wenig motiviert einen Job als Schweisser an, konstruiert aber statt der verlangten Meterware ein Luftschiff. Als er nicht nur Schwierigkeiten mit der Polizei bekommt, sondern sich auch noch in eine haarsträubende Agentengeschichte verstrickt, von einem Schlägertrupp gejagt und von seiner grossen Liebe verlassen wird, scheint sein Stern zu sinken
