Lacombe, Lucien by Louis Malle( visu )
76 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 842 libraries worldwide
One of the first French films to address the issue of collaboration during the German Occupation, Louis Malle?s brave and controversial Lacombe Lucien traces a young peasant?s journey from potential Resistance member to Gestapo recruit. At once the story of a nation and one troubled boy?s horrific coming of age, the film is a disquieting portrait of lost innocence and guilt
Le souffle au coeur Murmur of the heart by Louis Malle( visu )
76 editions published between 1954 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 835 libraries worldwide
A candid portrait of one boy's journey from childhood to adulthood. A precocious fifteen-year-old boy's sexual maturation and unorthodox relationship with his free-spirited mother is both shocking and deeply poignant
Zazie dans le métro by Louis Malle( visu )
70 editions published between 1959 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 734 libraries worldwide
Zazie is an energetic, saucy little girl from the suburbs who comes to Paris with her mother Jeanne for the weekend. Jeanne has an urgent appointment with her lover, so Uncle Gabby will be looking after Zazie. Zazie particularly wants to ride the Metro--the subway--but the train staff is on strike. So after the obligatory sightseeing trip to the Eiffel Tower, Zazie loses her uncle and embarks on a series of madcap, rather Rabelaisian adventures. While visually borrowing from silent films and cartoons, there is quite a lot of humor, social satire, cultural and linguistic commentary (drawn directly from the novel) that is incomprehensible without a thorough knowledge of French history and culture in the post-war period. To the average American viewer, it is best approached as a surrealistic, farcical slice of French life and enjoyed accordingly
Les amants by Christophe Honoré( visu )
81 editions published between 1957 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 672 libraries worldwide
A sensuous but bored provincial wife attempts to find love and a more meaningful life in an adulterous relationship with a younger man. Truffaut called the film "the first night of love in the cinema." The film's guiltless treatment of an illicit affair, however, caused a furor of protest and censorship upon its release. It also made an international star of Jeanne Moreau

49 editions published between 1987 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 655 libraries worldwide
An autobiographical account of a boy's (Malle) first friendship in a Catholic Boarading school during the German occupation of France
Le feu follet by Louis Malle( visu )
70 editions published between 1963 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 645 libraries worldwide
After garnering international acclaim for such seminal crowd-pleasers as The Lovers and Zazie dans le métro, Louis Malle gave his fans a shock with The Fire Within (Le feu follet), a penetrating study of individual and social inertia. Maurice Ronet (Elevator to the Gallows), in an implosive, haunted performance, plays Alain Leroy, a self-destructive writer who resolves to kill himself and spends the next twenty-four hours trying to reconnect with a host of wayward friends. Unsparing in its portrait of Alain's inner turmoil and shot with remarkable clarity, The Fire Within is one of Malle's darkest and most personal films

After skirting the horrors of an unidentified war being waged in an anonymous countryside, a beautiful young woman takes refuge in a remote farmhouse where she becomes embroiled in the surreal domestic odyssey of a mysterious family.

"In 1986, Louis Malle (himself a transplant to the United States) set out to investigate the ever widening range of immigrant experience in America. Interviewing a variety of newcomers in middle- and working-class communities from coast to coast, Malle paints a generous, humane portrait of their individual struggles in an increasingly polyglot nation"--Container.

"In 1979, Louis Malle traveled into the heart of Minnesota to capture the everyday lives of the men and women of a prosperous farming community. He returned six years later, during Ronald Reagan's second term, to find drastic economic decline. Free of stereotypes about America's heartland, GOD'S COUNTRY, commissioned for American public television, is a stunning work of emotional and political clarity"--Container
Spirits of the dead by Roger Vadim( visu )
36 editions published between 1968 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 299 libraries worldwide
Film based on the works of macabre author Edgar Allan Poe. Vadim directs the first segment, METZENGERSTEIN, with Jane Fonda portraying the spoiled, vicious Frederique. When she finally meets her neighbor, Baron Wilhelm (played by her brother Peter), her advances toward him are met with rejection. Humiliated, she takes matters into her own hands, leading her into a downward spiral with a tragic ending. Malle takes the middle slot with WILLIAM WILSON, featuring Alain Delon as the troubled hero, a man who has been haunted since childhood by a man with his exact name. After torturing a gorgeous woman (Brigitte Bardot), a final duel brings William's ghosts home once and for all
