Total eclipse by Agnieszka Holland( visu )

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 )
21 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 205 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
