3 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 58 libraries worldwide
One of the great, unfinished works in film history, Inferno, by Henri-Georges Clouzot was an audaciously experimental film with a virtually unlimited budget that was stopped only three weeks into production. Working closely with Clouzot's widow, Serge Bromberg and Ruxandra Medrea reconstruct Clouzot's original vision, filling and explaining the gaps with new interviews, re-enactments and Clouzot's own notes and storyboards, delivering an in-depth look at the masterpiece that might have been

L'Enfer d'Henri-Georges Clouzot by Serge Bromberg( visu )
8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in French and held by 50 libraries worldwide
En 1964, Henri-Georges Clouzot choisit Romy Schneider, 26 ans, et Serge Reggiani, 42 ans, pour être les vedettes de L'Enfer. Un projet énigmatique et insolite, un budget illimité, un film qui devait être un "événement" cinématographique à sa sortie. Mais après 3 semaines de tournage, le drame. Le projet est interrompu, et les images que l'on disait "incroyables" ne seront jamais dévoilées. Ces images, oubliées depuis un demi-siècle, ont été retrouvées et elles sont plus époustouflantes que la légende l'avait prédit. Elles racontent un film unique, la folie et la jalousie filmées en caméra subjective, l'histoire d'un tournage maudit et celle d'Henri-Georges Clouzot qui avait laissé libre cours à son génie de cinéaste. Jamais Romy n'a été aussi belle et hypnotique. Jamais un auteur n'aura été aussi proche et fusionnel avec le héros qu'il a inventé. Serge Bromberg et Ruxandra Medrea réussissent ici une "recomposition" de l'oeuvre disparue, créant un nouveau film qui raconte l'histoire de ce naufrage magnifique et qui permet au projet d'exister enfin
Les enfants du marais by Jean Becker( visu )
31 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 50 libraries worldwide
"Set in 1932, in a hamlet in the Marais, a quiet region of the River Loire, LES ENFANTS glows with a wonderful bouquet of eccentric friends who all look and behave as though they've never been out of sight of home, or ever wanted to be: Andre Dussollier as a dandy with a wind-up gramophone and a stack of jazz records; Michel Serrault as the self-made man of property; Jacques Villeret, lately seen in Le Diner de cons; and Jacques Gamblin as a contented couple of tradesmen; Isabelle Carre, as a local girl who is Gamblin's unpossessable beloved. Becker fills his frames with lovely landscapes, nice folk, charm, whimsy, gentle humor. The seasons change, but time stands still, since the characters don't know what we do: that Hitler is less than a decade away and the Occupation will turn this little paradise into history. A magical tale of friendship, mortality and the inevitability of fate."--Alexander Walker, BBC Online

In a bid to bond with his father, Julien challenges him to participate with him in the Ironman race in Nice (French Riviera), a triathlon in which his father has previously competed. This trial is already exceptional, but it becomes almost impossible if one has to help a disabled youth throughout the course.
