Que la bête meure by Claude Chabrol( visu )
5 editions published between 1969 and 2007 in French and held by 198 libraries worldwide
A story of revenge in which Charles sets out to hunt down the driver of the car that killed his son in a hit-and-run accident. His quarry turns out to be one of Chabrol's bourgeois savages whose son would also like to be rid of him. Ultimately the story can be viewed in different ways. As a classical revenge story it recalls the fatalistic cinema of Fritz Lang (Rancho Notorious, The Big Heat). Alternatively as a story of guilt and redemption it is more in line with Hitchcock's morally ambiguous "transference of guilt" dramas such as I Confess. Finally the cool deliberation in portrayal of the monstrous Paul and the encouragement of our complicity with the tragically flawed Charles is Lang and Hitchcock plus Chabrol

Il deserto rosso by Michelangelo Antonioni( visu )
2 editions published in 2006 in Italian and held by 13 libraries worldwide
A masterpiece of color cinematography, RED DESERT uses its carefully rendered color scheme to heighten the emotional impact of Michelangelo Antonioni's portrayal of the alienating effect of the modern world on one woman. Giuliana (an atypically brunette Monica Vitti in a marvelous performance) lives in the northern Italian town of Ravenna with her husband, Ugo (Carlo Chionetti), a factory engineer who fails to appreciate the depth of her despair, and with her young son, Valerio (Valerio Bartoleschi), upon whom she dotes. The city's grim industrial landscape weighs heavily on Giuliana. Corrado (Richard Harris), who has come to recruit workers for a South American project, is attracted to her and understands her depression, realizing that the auto accident ostensibly responsible for her malaise was really a suicide attempt. Giuliana's struggle to come to terms with her environment is not easily resolved. --
