"Georges is a TV Literary Reviewer and lives in a small yet modern town house with his wife Ann, a publisher and his young son Pierrot.

As the tapes become more personal, Georges takes it upon himself to figure out who is putting through his family through such horror."--IMDB.com

L'Écume des jours = Mood indigo by Michel Gondry( Visual )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mood Indigo is the surreal and poetic tale of Colin (Romain Duris, Heartbreaker), an idealistic and inventive young man, and Chloe (Audrey Tatou, Amelie), a young woman who seems like the physical embodiment of the eponymous Duke Ellington tune. Their idyllic marriage is turned on its head when Chloe falls sick with a water lily growing in her lung. To pay for her medical bills in this fantasy version of Paris, Colin must go out to work in a series of increasingly absurd jobs, while around them, their apartment disintegrates and their friends, including the talented Nicolas (Omar Sy), and Chick (Gad Elmaleh) - a huge fan of the philosopher Jean-Sol Partre - go to pieces. Directed by the truly inimitable Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, The Science Of Sleep), Mood Indigo is full of the wonderfully inventive flourishes synonymous to Gondry, that cinema audiences the world over adore. It is both a sumptuous feast for the eyes and a passionate song for the heart."--Container

"Racial integration is Elena's profession and passion, not only filling her working day as a cultural mediator assisting immigrants, but spilling over into her home life as well. All too often her daughter Giovanna and her husband Carlo, a computer technician, must attend evening charity events where they feel distinctly out of place. During one of these evenings, Carlo meets Nadine, a beautiful black woman with whom he establishes an intimate understanding at first glance. Nadine's husband Bertrand, a refined black intellectual and the evening's featured speaker, stirs everyone with his heartfelt words. Later Carlo convinces his wife, who is quite hesitant, to invite Nadine and her children to Giovanna's birthday party. In the midst of the fun and noise of the party, Carlo and Nadine barely say a word, but their feelings are unmistakable. A computer needing repair breaks down the last barriers, allowing their passion to flow free, while others, their family and friends, are flooded with feelings of astonishment, rejection and a certain morbid curiosity: what is it like for a black woman to love a white man? What happens to a passionate love when everything is working against it?"--Filmitalia

1 edition published in 2018 in French and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"C'est l'histoire d'un monde où la traite d'esclaves a dessiné ses territoires et ses propres frontières. Un monde où la violence, la domination et le profit ont imposé leurs routes. L'histoire de l'esclavage n'a pas commencé dans les champs de coton. C'est une tragédie beaucoup plus ancienne qui se joue depuis l'aube de l'humanité. A partir du 7e siècle, et pendant plus de 1200 ans, l'Afrique a été l'épicentre d'un gigantesque commerce d'êtres humains parcourant l'ensemble du globe. Nubiens, Peuls, Mandingues, Songhaïs, Sosos, Akans, Yorubas, Ibos, Kongos, Yao, Somalis... Au total, plus de 20 millions d'Africains ont été déportés, vendus et réduits en esclavage. Ce système criminel a enrichi et posé les fondements des plus grands empires à travers le monde. L'ampleur de ce trafic est telle qu'il a longtemps été impossible d'en expliquer tous les mécanismes. Pourtant, son histoire pose une question fondamentale : comment l'Afrique s'est-elle retrouvée au coeur des routes de l'esclavage ?" (source : jaquette)
