Muche, whose daughter Ernestine, also a teacher, makes cynical use of the knowledge that Topaze loves her. Alas, Topaze's naive honesty brings him unjust dismissal ... and makes him fair game for the 'aunt' of his private pupil, really the mistress of crooked politician Regis, who needs an honest-seeming 'front man'." -- Container

Les Dames du Bois de Boulogne by Robert Bresson( Visual )

7 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in French and German and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This unique love story, based on a novelette by Denis Diderot and with dialogue written by Jean Cocteau, follows the maneuverings of a society lady as she connives to initiate a scandalous affair between her aristocratic ex-lover and a prostitute. With his second feature film, director Robert Bresson was already forging his singularly brilliant filmmaking technique as he created a moving study of the power of revenge and the strength of true love. The Criterion Collection is proud to present Robert Bresson's Les Dames du Bois de Boulogne."--Website
Les portes de la nuit by Marcel Carné( Visual )

5 editions published between 1946 and 2017 in French and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dernier fruit de la collaboration entre les dialogues poétiques de Jacques Prévert et les images réalistes de Marcel carné, Les portes de la nuit dépeint avec intensité un amour impossible dans le Paris d'après-guerre, mêlé à l'épineuse question de la recherche des collabos. Ce chef-d'oeuvre associe parfaitement récit social, discours engagé et romantisme poétique. Très mal accuielli lors de sa sortie, l'oeuvre de Carné est aujourd'hui considéré comme le dernier grand film du réalisateur." (Source : jaquette)

La Révolution n'épargnant pas la vie des religieuses, le commissaire de la Révolution dispose d'un mandat de réquisition. Les Carmélites sont dès lors traquées et dépossédées de leurs biens, avant d'affronter l'ultime sacrifice."
La ronde by Max Ophuls( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in French and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La ronde translates as 'The round' which can refer to the policeman's beat, a circle of dancers, or a carousel, all of which this circular collection of interconnected short stories resembles. Each scene is built around a specific pair, and when one member of the pair breaks away from his or her lover, he or she then moves on to the next, introducing the partner that will lead on to the next pair, and so on until we are back where we started. Many of these lovers are seeking something they've lost in arms that look familiar but that belong to strangers. La ronde is the bittersweet note sounded by the circular nostalgia of the heart
