The French minister ( visu )
4 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 282 libraries worldwide
"Thierry Lhermitte is a comic force of nature as the foreign minister Alexandre Taillard de Worms, who hurtles around the titular offices like a talking tornado. Frantically shielding him from imminent disaster every day are naïve graduate Arthur Vlaminck (Raphaël Personnaz) and world-weary chief of staff Claude Maupas (Niels Arestrup). As they manage crisis after crisis on the political front, the threat of an international war looms, bringing the stakes ever higher -- and the madness more frenzied!"--Alliance Française French Film Festival website

Veillées d'armes histoire du journalisme en temps de guerre by Marcel Ophüls( visu )
4 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in French and English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
One of the most important films of Marcel Ophuls' career has also been the least seen until now. Shot primarily in Sarajevo in 1993, during the siege of the former Yugoslavian city, The Troubles We've Seen is a exploration of the ethical challenges of war reporting, in which Ophuls examines attitudes toward war in the Western media, and in the societies they inform. The 243-minute documentary interlaces stark realities of combat with mordantly hilarious references to Hollywood fantasy-versions of war, and includes over 50 interviews with some of the world's leading journalists, commentators, historians, newscasters and others. Among those appearing in the film are CNN's Christiane Amanpour, Walter Cronkite, The New York Times' John Burns, legendary war correspondent Martha Gellhorn (once married to Ernest Hemingway), French philosopher Bernard Henri Lévy, and then-Serbian President, Slobodan Milosevic, currently on trial for war crimes. Following its debut at Cannes, The Troubles We've Seen screened at the New York Film Festival in 1994, where it was hailed by the press as "engaging" and "engrossing". Film Comment included the title high on its list of 150 Top Unreleased Foreign Films of the 1990s. With Iraq, Afghanistan and terrorism on the nightly news, the questions Ophuls poses about the role of media in war have become dinner-table conversation in America. Every scene in this film is as timely and provocative as it was a decade ago
