Despite differences in rank and background, King Henry II and Thomas Becket are lifelong friends. The King is in constant conflict with the Church, which refuses to contribute financing to his wars in France, and jealously guards the tax-free status granted it by previous monarchs. When the Archbishop of Canterbury dies, Henry has a brilliant idea: rather than another pious cleric loyal to Rome, he will appoint his old friend, Thomas Becket--technically a deacon--to the post. Unfortunately, Becket takes the job seriously, holding devotion to God and the Church above his loyalty to the throne, or the person of its inhabitant. In opposition to Henry, he proves abler than his predecessors do, and the clash of two powerful personalities leads to destruction

2001, a space odyssey 01, l'odyssée de l'espace by Stanley Kubrick ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Extrait du résumé figurant sur la jaquette : En 1968 sortait le film qui allait bouleverser le monde de la science-fiction. Désormais, il y aurait "avant" et "après" 2001 : l'Odyssée de l'Espace. Ce chef-d'oeuvre échappe d'ailleurs totalement au temps qui passe. Malgré les progrès techniques réalisés depuis sa sortie dans les effets spéciaux, le film n'a pas pris une ride, prouvant de manière éclatante le génie visionnaire de Maître Kubrick... Pour commencer son voyage dans le futur, Kubrick nous offre une vision de notre passé préhistorique puis, grâce à un fondu-enchaîné magistral, nous projette plusieurs milliers d'années en avant. Dans un espace colonisé et aseptisé, l'atronaute Bowman va vivre la plus grande aventure de tous les temps et se trouver confronté à l'immortalité
