Korczak by Andrzej Wajda( visu )
23 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 361 libraries worldwide
"Henryk Goldszmit had become a Polish icon in the 1930s, through his writings, teachings, and radio programs for children, under the name of Janusz Korczak. WHen the kids from the Warsaw orphanage were to be deported to the gas chambers of Treblinka, he refused ot abandon them, and with them he died in the Holocaust. Academy award winning director Andrzej Wajda (Katyn) brings this tragic tale to the screen in Korczak, starring Wojciech Pszoniak as the kind and fiercely committed doctor. After the Nazis invade Poland, the Jewish Korczak and his orphans are moved into the newly formed Ghettos, where he scrounges for food and vainly tries to protect the children from the violence and famine outside their walls. With a powerful script by Agnieszka Holand (Europa Europa), stunning B&W cinematography by Robby Müller (Dead Man), and performed with self-immolating intensity by Pozoniak and the phenomenally talented ensemble of child actors, Korczak is, as Steven Spielberg wrote, "one of the most important European pictures about the Holocaust"--container
Total eclipse by Agnieszka Holland( visu )
20 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 329 libraries worldwide
In September 1871, Paul Verlaine, a poet, young but already established in Paris, received a letter from the provinces containing eight extraordinary poems by one Arthur Rimbaud. He wrote back at once, saying: "My dear great soul, come to us, you are summoned, you are expected." What follows is their story directly taken from their letters and poetry. While Verlaine was a great poet, Rimbaud was a genius, a revolutionary. His poems from age sixteen to the age of nineteen forever changed the face of modern poetry. Together, these two men feed each other's insatiable hunger for life and love, trying desperately to straddle the lines between knowledge and self-destruction, creativity and delusion
Olivier Olivier by Agnieszka Holland( visu )
23 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 198 libraries worldwide
Based, unimaginably, on a true story about Olivier, the coddled nine-year old son of a provincial French family, who disappears mysteriously. Despite the promises of a well-meaning police inspector, Olivier fails to reappear. The loss breaks up the already tension filled family of Nadine (the older sister), the over-protective mother and the vet father. The father leaves the wife and daugher after bitter recriminations and grief. Six years later Olivier "reappears" from his life as a street hustler in Paris and claims to have forgotten his childhood. This second Olivier prevents another local child from being murdered by a peasant homosexual who had killed the nine-year old Olivier whose remains are exhumed in the peasant's cottage. A dark film showing ugliness behind seeming rural bliss. Some sensitive performances by Golovine (Nadine), the father (Cluzet) and the intricate character of the mother (Rouan). Shows French fascination with the occult
