Syngué Sabour, pierre de patience = The patience stone by Atiq Rahimi( visu )
3 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in Persian and held by 358 libraries worldwide
Adapted from the best-selling novel by Atiq Rahimi. It tells a story of a young woman watching over her older husband, in a country torn apart by war. A bullet in the neck has reduced him to a comatose state. One day, the woman's vigil changes. She begins to speak truth to her silent husband, telling him about her suffering, her dreams and her secrets. After years of living under his control, with no voice of her own, she says things she could never have spoken before. Her husband has unconsciously become syngué sabour (The Patience Stone)- a magical black stone that, according to Persian mythology, absorbs the plight of those who confide in it. The woman's confessions are extraordinary and without restraint. But after weeks of looking after her husband, she begins to act, discovering herself in a relationship she starts with a young soldier
Œuvres morales by Plutarc( Book )
36 editions published between 1984 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 174 libraries worldwide
Plutarch wrote on many subjects. Most popular have always been the 46 Parallel Lives, biographies planned to be ethical examples in pairs (in each pair, one Greek figure and one similar Roman), though the last four lives are single. All are invaluable sources of our knowledge of the lives and characters of Greek and Roman statesmen, soldiers and orators. Plutarch's many other varied extant works, about 60 in number, are known as Moralia or Moral Essays. They are of high literary value, besides being of great use to people interested in philosophy, ethics and religion. -- Book jacket

Luis Buñuel : le jeu et la loi by Marie-Claude Taranger( Book )
1 edition published in 1990 in French and held by 48 libraries worldwide
"L'oeil tranché, d'Un chien Andalou, le scandale de l'Âge d'or? Une évidence : le projet cinématographique de Luis Buñuel se place d'emblée sous le signe de la rupture. Une question : la rupture opérée, que peut-il y avoir au-delà? Comment poursuivre une fois passé le point extrême du refus? Buñuel aurait pu être le Rimbaud du cinéma. Il aurait pu aussi être de ceux qui sont un jour rentrés dans le rang en abandonnant leurs révoltes de jeunesse. S'il n'a été ni l'un ni l'autre, c'est qu'il a réussi à élaborer une stratégie originale qui lui permette de ne renoncer ni à la création ni à la révolte. Cette stratégie repose sur le paradoxe et sur le jeu : loin de refuser d'abord l'ordre et la loi, les films ne cessent de s'y référer et de les mimer, mais pour les enfreindre et en renouveler indéfiniment la transgression. Cette mise en cause de l'ordre conduit à récuser les catégories fondamentales de notre pensée, de la causalité à la 'réalité', de l'identité à la vérité. Ainsi peut s'articuler une parole qui refuse les cadres mêmes qui lui donnent forme. On le vérifie ici avec trois des derniers films de Buñuel : 'La Voie lactée', le 'Charme discret de la bourgeoisie' et le 'Fantôme de la liberté'."--Book cover
Pierre Etaix ( visu )
1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 37 libraries worldwide
"A French comedy master whose films went unseen for decades as a result of legal tangles, director-actor Pierre Etaix is a treasure the cinematic world has rediscovered and embraced with relish. His work can be placed on the spectrum of classic physical comedy with that of Jacques Tati and Jerry Lewis, but it also stands alone in its good-natured delicacy. These films, influenced by Etaix's experiences as a circus acrobat and clown and by the silent film comedies he adored, are elegantly deadpan, but as an on-screen presence, Etaix radiates warmth. This collection includes all of his films, five features, The Suitor,Yoyo, As Long as You've Got Your Health, Le grand amour, and Land of Milk and Honey-most of them collaborations with the great screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière-and three shorts, Rupture, the Oscar-winning Happy Anniversary, and Feeling Good. Not one of these is anything less than a bracing and witty delight"--Container
