La Bataille d'Alger = The Battle of Algiers by Gillo Pontecorvo( Visual )

11 editions published between 1965 and 2014 in French and English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Revolt that Stirred the World! One of the most influential films in the history of political cinema, Gillo Pontecorvo's The Battle of Algiers focuses on the harrowing events of 1957, a key year in Algeria's struggle for independence from France. Shot in the streets of Algiers in documentary style, the film vividly recreates the tumultuous Algerian uprising against the occupying French in the 1950s. As violence escalates on both sides, the French torture prisoners for information and the Algerians resort to terrorism in their quest for independence. Children shoot soldiers at point-blank range; women plant bombs in cafés. The French win the battle, but ultimately lose the war as the Algerian people demonstrate that they will no longer be suppressed. The Battle of Algiers is a film still with astonishing relevance today. Nominated: Best Foreign Language Film, 39th Annual Academy Awards®.--Kanopy
Il gattopardo = The leopard by Luchino Visconti( Visual )

5 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in Italian and English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Luchino Visconti's The Leopard (Il Gattopardo) is an epic on the grandest possible scale. The film recreates, with nostalgia, drama, and opulence, the tumultuous years of Italy's Risorgimento, when the aristocracy lost its grip and the middle classes rose and formed a unified, democratic Italy. Burt Lancaster stars as the aging prince watching his culture and fortune wane in the face of a new generation, represented by his upstart nephew (Alain Delon) and his beautiful fiancée (Claudia Cardinale). Awarded the Palme d'Or at the 1963 Cannes Film Festival, The Leopard translates Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa's novel, and the history it recounts, into a truly cinematic masterpiece. This release boasts a stunning digital transfer from the original 70mm negative materials, with restored image and sound, supervised by director of photography Giuseppe Rotunno and is presented in its original wide screen aspect ratio.--Kanopy

"La Rabbia employs documentary footage (from the 1950's) and accompanying commentary to attempt to answer the existential question, Why are our lives characterized by discontent, anguish, and fear? The film is in two completely separate parts, and the directors of these respective sections, left-wing Pier Paolo Pasolini and conservative Giovanni Guareschi, offer the viewer contrasting analyses of and prescriptions for modern society."--Www.imdb.com

Trama: Sedotta e poi abbandonata nel corso di un viaggio da Marcello, un playboy di provincia, la giovane aspirante soubrette Aida si mette sulle tracce del ragazzo e trova la casa in cui abita, nel parmigiano. Ma Marcello le si nega e demanda al fratello minore, il sedicenne Lorenzo, il compito di trovare una scusa che la metta fuori pista. Lorenzo rimane colpito da Aida e dalla sua sofferenza e, quasi con patimento, riesce a sviare la ragazza, la quale, il giorno seguente, lo chiama a casa. Lorenzo si reca nell'alberghetto in cui la ragazza risiede e questa cerca di vendergli un ferro da stiro. Capito lo stato in cui versa Aida, Lorenzo le presta cinquemila lire e passa con lei la giornata. Alla sera la introduce, facendola passare per la cugina, in un hotel di lusso, nel quale la ragazza pare accettare la corte di tre maturi imprenditori. Stanco di quello che ha visto durante una serata di festa (Aida che lo ignora danzando con uno dei tre uomini), Lorenzo decide di andarsene, ma il successivo chiarimento con la giovane lo porta a dichiararsi prendendole con dolcezza la mano. Il giorno seguente Aida è alla stazione di Parma e attende Piero, il suo ex fidanzato - e direttore dell'orchestra in cui la ragazza cantava - dal quale è fuggita in compagnia di Marcello. Lorenzo corre alla stazione e per non perdere Aida le comunica che è riuscito a trovare Marcello. Ma al presunto appuntamento con il ragazzo si presenta l'insegnante di Lorenzo, don Pietro, che induce la ragazza ad abbandonare la città. Aida ritorna quindi a Riccione, dove Piero la accoglie in malo modo. Prende le sue difese un amico di Piero che dice di essere un regista cinematografico: ma l'uomo cerca di approfittare di Aida. Intanto giunge a Riccione Lorenzo, che si azzuffa con il sedicente regista per onore della sua amata. Dopo un momento molto intimo in spiaggia, Lorenzo parte e torna a Parma, lasciando ad Aida una cospicua somma di denaro e una notevole solitudine

Litiga anche con il marito, ma non è disposta a recedere dai suoi intenti.

Durante il provino, mentre la mamma riesce a trovare un angolo dal quale sbirciare, la bimba scoppia in lacrime. La reazione in sala è sconcertante: la troupe ride a crepapelle di quel pianto. Mortificata e indignata per gli sfottò dei "cinematografari", Maddalena, allorquando Maria viene effettivamente prescelta per il film, si rifiuta di firmare il contratto preferendo ricongiungersi con il marito
