Tango by Carlos Saura( Visual )
17 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 964 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Set in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the film tells the story of director Mario Suarez's quest to make the ultimate tango film. Lonely after his wife (one of the film's stars) has left him, Mario must find the themes that will hold the film together, while simultaneously permitting his musicians and dancers the freedom of expression that is necessary to satisfy the tango-hungry Argentine audience. Things become complicated when Mario falls in love with Elena, a beautiful and talented young dancer who is the girlfriend of the powerful and dangerous Angelo Larroca, an investor in the picture. And Mario's creative vision is challenged by his investors when he plans a scene that recreates Argentina's dark years of political suppression and "disappearances."

He renounced his vocation, and is now an archaeologist in Africa. A collector of rare comes to him with an odd request. An old Christian Byzantine church has been unearthed in Kenya, surprisingly intact, as if it were buried right after its completion.

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Belying what many think of as the technical orientation of their job, cinematographers can be remarkably loquacious, a fact evident from the beginning of the interviews with 110 prominent practitioners of the craft. The men and women interviewed are interested in discussing the aesthetics and emotional content of light, composition, movement, and color--the building blocks of the film image. Forget directors, actors, and screenwriters: based on this documentary, nobody talks as passionately or poetically about the art of film as cinematographers

Neu geschnittene und um 49 zusätzliche Minuten mit bislang noch nie gezeigtem Material verlängerte Fassung von Francis Ford Coppolas Vietnam-Drama "Apocalyse Now" (1976-79), die den Intentionen des Regisseurs deutlicher als die vor mehr als 20 Jahren veröffentlichte Fassung entspricht. Basierend auf einem Roman von Joseph Conrad, wird die Grausamkeit des Krieges ebenso deutlich wie seine Sinnlosigkeit. Die überarbeitete Fassung, die vermeintlichen Nebenhandlungen größeren Raum zubilligt, setzt neue Maßstäbe und lässt noch eindeutiger in die Abgründe der menschlichen Seele blicken. (
