Das weisse Band eine deutsche Kindergeschichte ( visu )
2 editions published in 2010 in German and held by 1,150 libraries worldwide
Drama set on the eve of the First World War in a small village in Northern Germany. The story is narrated by the local school teacher, and covers a series of disturbing 'accidents' and malicious attacks, with aspects of retribution at their root, that take place over the course of a year. In the process it uncovers the private lives and characters of various inhabitants and families of the village, from the local baron and steward, the strict Lutheran pastor and the doctor, to farm workers, and the undercurrents of fear, repression, resentment, hatred and brutality that simmer under a respectable surface in both old and young.

In the film's shattering climax, he is finally driven over the brink into madness and murder"--Container

On a busy street in the stark light of day in Paris, a young man ruthlessly belittles a beggar-woman by throwing rubbish into her pleading, outstretched hands. This is the brief occurence that propels and links several very different characters which include Anne (Juliette Binoche), an actress who is in the final throes of her relationship with war photographer Georges; his farmer father and brother Jean, who, contrary to his father's wishes, has no intention of inheriting the farm; Amadou, a music teacher for deaf-mute children, and his family who originate from Africa; and Maria, a Romanian immigrant

Heart of glass by Werner Herzog( visu )
8 editions published between 1976 and 2008 in German and English and held by 231 libraries worldwide
This visionary film with a resemblance to a folk tale is set around 1800. It begins with a prophet shepherd describing the Apocalypse. In the valley below, the foreman of a glass factory has died and with him the secret of producing an exquisite glass ruby from which the whole community lives. In his search for the formula, the factory owner is overcome with a madness that engulfs the village. This is the most extreme expression of Herzog's disillusioned romanticism. A trance-like atmosphere pervades the film; most of the cast were hypnotised before each day's shooting. The screenplay is based on the second chapter of a novel, The Hour of Death, by Herbert Achternbusch, which is in turn based on a Bavarian folk legend

In addition to his prodigious output as a playwright, poet and theatrical producer, Bertolt Brecht maintained no fewer than three mistresses at any one time throughout his adult life.

Surrounded by the women who form his extended family, he is the center of a quiet storm

Corinna Harfouch spielt Eliane Richter, eine erfolgreiche Innenarchitektin, die bei einem tragischen Jagdunfall ihren 19-jährigen Sohn Alexander verloren hat. Die Trauerarbeit führt sie zu dem zurückgezogen lebenden Porträtmaler Max Holländer (Josef Bierbichler). Sie gibt bei ihm ein grossformatiges Bild in Auftrag, dass den geliebten Sohn und die weniger geliebte Tochter Lilli (Karoline Herfurth) zeigen soll. Holländer stellt Forderungen. Er braucht Fotos von Alexander und will vor allen Dingen Lilli kennenlernen um sich dem Verstorbenen zu nähern. Die 22-jährige Tanzstudentin begegnet dem deutlich älteren Mann zunächst mit Vorbehalten. Doch schon bald entwickelt sich zwischen den beiden eine beinahe schon therapeutisch zu nennende Verbindung.

Little Dieter needs to fly: Growing up in post-WWII Germany, all Dieter Dengler, the son of a Nazi slain during the war, dreamed about was becoming a pilot. At age 18 he emigrated to the United States and worked odd jobs until he was accepted into the Navy and began pilot training. He was sent to Vietnam around 1966 and on his first mission was shot down and taken prisoner.

13 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in German and French and held by 25 libraries worldwide
Ausgehend von einer Begegnung auf einem Pariser Boulevard, versammelt der Film eine Hand voll Menschen und Geschichten, die lose miteinander verbunden sind. Aus scheinbar willkürlichen Fragmenten wird ein vielfach gebrochenes, distanziertes und zugleich hoch codiertes Gegenwartsbild montiert, in dem viele aktuelle Diskurse aufgegriffen werden, u.a. über Migration und Rassismus, das Verhältnis von Wahrheit und medialer Inszenierung, Zivilcourage und Schuld. Der ebenso dichte wie spannende Film erweist sich als Michael Hanekes neuerliches Lob des Fragmentarischen und als Einspruch gegen die beständige Tendenz des menschlichen Geistes zur Sinnstiftung.
