La vida mancha by Enrique Urbizu( Visual )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in Spanish and Basque and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in industrial Spain, this subtle variation of the 'cuckoo in the nest' story is distinguished by a clever, observant script on the theme of sibling rivalry and by its smoothly confident direction. It's powered, too, by the gripping, controlled performance of José Coronado, as Pedro, with his mysterious past, who returns after 14 years to visit his now married brother Fito (Sanz). Fito can't keep up the payments on his lorry and is trying to keep secret from his wife his destructive downhill slide at the local gaming table. Meanwhile, the confident, fastidious, highly elegant Pedro (everything Fito is not) impresses Fito's wife with his considerate treatment of her son. Urbizu captures the manners and mores of his working class/criminal characters with something of Jacques Becker's easy élan, and shows he's learnt a trick from Buñuel in twisting the psychological knife

"Ein professioneller Jäger seltener Buchschätze begibt sich auf eine Reise zu den Besitzern eines okkulten Buchs und fahndet nach Illustrationen, die vom Satan persönlich stammen sollen. Dieser lässt es sich nicht nehmen, dem Suchenden unbemerkt behilflich zu sein, dem gierige Sektenmitglieder und ein ehrgeiziger Teufelsanbeter das Leben zur Hölle machen. Ein opulent, weitgehend traditionell gestalteter Gruselfilm, der die Konventionen des Abenteuer- und Schauerkinos lustvoll zelebriert, ohne sie allzu sehr zu ironisieren." [fi,]

La neuvième porte by Roman Polanski( Visual )

"Dean Corso est un chercheur de livres rares pour collectionneurs fortunes. Sa réputation lui vaut d'tre engagé par un éminent bibliophile, passionné de démonologie, Boris Balkan, qui lui demande de traquer les deux derniers exemplaires du légendaire manuel d'invocation satanique, "Les Neuf Portes du Royaume des Ombres". Corso relève le défi. De New York a Tolède, de Paris à Cintra, il s'enfonce dans un labyrinthe semé de pièges et de tentations. Il va peu à peu décrypter les énigmes du livre maudit et découvrir le véritable enjeu de sa mission." --[]
