"This quasi-historical thriller opens in 1840 on the island of Saint Helena. A coffin is exhumed and opened in a downpour. Witnesses pronounce the occupant to be a well-preserved Napoléon Bonaparte. The story, told in voice-over by Basil Heathcote, Napoléon's official guard, then backtracks to June 1815 when 20-year-old Heathcote arrived on Saint Helena under the command of no-nonsense Sir Hudson Lowe. As governor of the remote British outpost, Lowe's chief responsibility is to make certain that the island's most notorious prisoner does not escape. Directed by Antoine de Caunes, and stars Philippe Torreton and Richard E. Grant. (From France, in French and English, English subtitles) (Thriller) (2003)"--Website

La 4e de couverture indique "Mémé, c'est ma mémé, même si ça ne se dit plus. Mémé me manque. Ses silences, ses mots simples au Scrabble, sa maison enfouie sous les pommiers et son buffet d'avant-guerre. Ce texte est subjectif, partial, amoureux, ce n'est pas une enquête, ce n'est pas une biographie, c'est ce que j'ai vu, compris ou pas, ce que j'ai perdu et voulu retenir, une dernière fois. Mémé, c'est mon regard de gamin qui ne veut pas passer à autre chose. Voici le portrait qu'à plus de quarante ans Philippe Torreton fait de celle qui fut le personnage central de son enfance, un portrait tendre et nostalgique, construit par petites touches comme la mémoire, où chacun retrouvera sa grand-mère ou celle dont il a rêvé."

"Le jeu de la mort. 80 candidats, un jeu aux règles abjectes. Qui va obéir et infliger des chocs électriques à un inconnu? Combien oseront se révolter? 'Le Jeu de la mort', transposition de la célèbre expérience de Milgram à l'univers télévisé, est un choc qui pose des questions fondamentales : notre soumission, la nature du pouvoir de la télé, notre capacité de rébellion. Sept scientifiques encadrent l'expérience et la commentent. Une réflexion profonde sur le rôle de la télé aujourd'hui, l'évolution de notre société, notre propre comportement - Le temps de cerveau disponible. En 10 ans, la télévision a inondé sans limite le marché mondial. Son arrivée a ouvert une nouvelle ère dans l'histoire des médias de masse. Avec des chercheurs, dont le philosophe Bernard Stiegler, ce réquisitoire démontre comment, en trois décennies, la télévision de divertissement est devenue une machine pulsionnelle propre à mobiliser du 'temps de cerveau disponible'. L'attention de millions de téléspectateurs à vendre aux annonceurs." [Source : jaquette]

"It is the early 1300's and the treasury of France, under the rule of Philippe IV (Philippe le Bel or Philippe the Beautiful), is empty. The king decides the only solution is to raid the treasures of the Knights Templar (amongst others) and concocts various charges of treason, heresy and deviance against the Knights and their Grand Master Jacques de Molay. Having confessed under torture to the crimes of which he is accused, de Molay is condemned to be burned at the stake. With his dying breath he curses the king, the king's advisor (Guillaume de Nogaret), the pope (Pope Clement V) and the thirteen succeeding generations of their families. There follows one of the most dramatic periods in French history, half a century of political intrigue, murder, treason, war and famine, which ultimately culminates in the 100 Years War"--Amazon
