Determined to collect an inheritance from a dying relative, a bourgeois couple travel across the French countryside while civilization crashes and burns around them. Featuring a justly famous centerpiece sequence in which the camera tracks along a seemingly endless traffic jam, and rich with historical and literary references, is a surreally funny and disturbing call for revolution, a depiction of society retreating to savagery, and, according to the credits, the end of cinema itself

"Camille falls out of love with her husband while he is rewriting the screenplay The Odyssey by American producer Jeremiah Prokosch. Just as the director of Prokosch's film, Fritz Lang, says the The Odyssey is the story of individuals confronting their situations in a real world, Contempt itself is an examination of the position of the filmmaker in the commercial cinema industry."--Container

2 ou 3 choses que je sais d'elle by Jean-Luc Godard( visu )
26 editions published between 1966 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 532 libraries worldwide
The "her" in the film refers to Paris. Inspired by a real article on housewife prostitution, the film examines Godard's theory that if you lived in Paris (at the time) one had to prostitute oneself to survive. This "sociological fable" is shot through the eyes of Juliette, a housewife who spends one day a week in central Paris selling her body on the street in the hope that she will be able to escape the high rise suburban drudgery in which she lives with her family, and find happiness. Disc set includes book (50 p.) on making of the film

La peau douce = the soft skin by François Truffaut( visu )
19 editions published between 1963 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 329 libraries worldwide
"Francçois Truffaut followed up the international phenomenon Jules and Jim with this tense tale of infidelity. The unassuming Jean Desailly is perfectly cast as a celebrated literary scholar, seemingly happily married, who embarks on an affair with a gorgeous stewardess, played by Francçoise Dorléac, who is captivated by his charm and reputation. As their romance gets serious, the film grows anxious, leading to a wallop of a conclusion. Truffaut made "The soft skin" at a time when he was immersing himself in the work of Alfred Hitchcock, and that master's influence can be felt throughout this complex, insightful, and underseen French New Wave treasure."
