A terrific story of reknown rebel lovers, James Joyce and Nora Barnacle. Follows the famous literary lovers from the dark streets of Dublin to the sun-kissed Italian coast.

Chéri eine Komödie der Eitelkeiten ( visu )
1 edition published in 2010 in German and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Eine alternde Belle-Epoque-Kurtisane soll aus dem verwöhnten Sohn einer Kollegin einen Mann machen. Aus der arrangierten Liaison entwickelt sich eine über Jahre andauernde Liebesbeziehung, der die Zweckehe des Liebhabers mit einer reichen Braut ein Ende setzt, ohne dass die Liebenden innerlich voneinander loskommen. Die opulent und mit hervorragenden Darstellern umgesetzte Literaturverfilmung zeichnet als elegant-scharfzüngige Gesellschaftskomödie die porträtierte Halbwelt als parodistischen Spiegel der "besseren Gesellschaft" und ihrer Werte. Zugleich verfolgt sie mit Momenten großer Poesie und Melancholie die Tragödie der Hauptfiguren, deren Gefühle und Sehnsüchte im Tanz auf dem gesellschaftlichen Parkett auf der Strecke bleiben.

Die eiserne Lady = The iron lady by Phyllida Lloyd( visu )
1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Biopic starring Meryl Streep in an Oscar-winning performance as former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Thatcher's life and political career are portrayed in flashback from the perspective of her later years as she struggles with Alzheimer's disease and grieves for her recently-deceased husband, Dennis (Jim Broadbent). The film traces her life from her childhood years in the family grocer's shop through to her graduation from Oxford, her early working life and her decision to enter politics. Her eleven-year stint in office is marked not only by her strictly conservative and hard-nosed leadership style, which earn her the nickname 'The Iron Lady', but also by spending cuts, strikes, the introduction of an unpopular poll tax and the Falklands War. Later, as her premiership is called into question, her previously loyal cabinet members - including Michael Heseltine (Richard E. Grant) and Geoffrey Howe (Anthony Head) - turn against her one by one, leading ultimately to her political downfall in 1990. The film also won the Academy Award for Best Make-Up
