Rousseau is a bestselling crime novelist from Paris, troubled by writer's block. Candice Lecoeur is a local beauty, gracing the famous "Belle de Jura" cheese packaging, who has gotten it into her head that she might well be the reincarnation of Marilyn Monroe. The two will meet in the coldest village in France, but only after Candice has been found dead. The case was closed before it even opened and the cause of death declared suicide by sleeping pills. Rousseau is the only one who doesn't buy it. Reality turns out to be stranger than fiction - and a source of inspiration - as Rousseau uncovers the truth about Candice's past and her untimely death. Boasting strong lead performances and gorgeous wintertime landscapes, this off-beat mystery breathes fresh life into the thriller genre

La Didone by Pier Francesco Cavalli( Visual )

5 editions published in 2012 in Italian and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the earliest operas deserving of the name, Didone is our first surviving musical version of the famous episode in Virgil's Aeneid where the Trojan hero loves and then cruelly leaves the noble Dido. Cavalli learnt at the feet of Monteverdi, and his dramatic transformation of the story is all the more expressive for its intimacy, worthy of the examples set by his master."--Container

Wealthy Orgon takes in a stranger, Tartuffe, an extremely pious and devout man of religion. Regarding him almost as a saint, Orgon plans to force his daughter to marry him, while disinheriting his son in his favor.

In revenge, Tartuffe seeks to seize Orgon's property and have him arrested. In the end the King intervenes, Tartuffe is arrested, and harmony is restored. Highly controversial for addressing the issue of religious hypocrisy, the play was twice suppressed before permission was given to perform it freely

Orsay( Visual )

3 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ancré le long de la Seine, il semble fait partie du paysage parisien "depuis toujours". Il aura été gare, décor d'un film d'Orson Welles, les herbes folles l'auront envahi, il aura été Théâtre, lieu de transit de prisonniers de guerre, investi par l'Abbé Pierre, menacé de destruction, puis classé. Ce film revient sur les histoires de ce lieu unique et questionne tout autant ses enjeux actuels. Le cinéaste Bruno Ulmer nous offre une vision intime, charnelle, unique d'Orsay. Vingt cinq années d'une spectaculaire vivacité. Fleuron de la modernité dès ses origines, ce lieu culturel majeur a toujours cultivé le lien entre passé et présent, continuité et renouveau. Une jeunesse qui pourtant parcourt trois siècles de vies humaines, croise tous les temps de l'art, de l'architecture, de la politique, les temps de la beauté, de la cruauté aussi, et les temps des révolutions. Un narrateur intemporel, incarné par le comédien Eric Ruf, nous conduit dans ce voyage passionnant, merveilleux dans l'espace et les temps. Orsay comme vous ne l'avez jamais vu![www.arts-spectacles.com]
