Nuit et brouillard Night and fog by Alain Resnais( visu )
25 editions published between 1955 and 2012 in French and English and held by 1,695 libraries worldwide
"Called the greatest film of all time by director Francois Truffaut, this legendary documentary from 1955, was directed by Alain Resnais, one of the pivotal figures in the 'New Wave' that revolutionised French cinema in the 1950s. Though only thirty minutes in length, the film is devastating in its impact. Night and Fog refers to the arrival of prisoners in Auschwitz under the cover of darkness and also the ultimate failure of the Nazis at Nuremberg to take responsibility for it. Written by Jean Cayrol, a holocaust survivor, and poetically narrated by Michel Bouquet, its gruesome images seem like a surreal nightmare."--Kanopy
Hiroshima mon amour by Alain Resnais( visu )
23 editions published between 1959 and 2009 in French and English and held by 1,103 libraries worldwide
"A French actress (Emmanuele Riva) and a Japanese architect (Eiji Okada) engage in a brief, intense affair in postwar Hiroshima, their consuming fascination impelling them to exorcise their own scarred memories of love and suffering. ... Delicately weaves past and present, personal pain and public anguish, in this moody masterwork"--DVD sleeve
L'Année dernière a Marienbad by Alain Resnais( visu )
2 editions published between 1961 and 2009 in French and held by 599 libraries worldwide
Feature : "[T]his surreal fever dream, or nightmare, gorgeously fuses the past with the present in telling its ambiguous tale of a man and a woman who may or may not have met a year ago, perhaps at the very same cathedral-like, mirror-filled château they now find themselves wandering. Unforgettable in both its confounding details (gilded ceilings, diabolical parlor games, a loaded gun) and haunting scope, Resnais' investigation into the nature of memory is disturbing, romantic, and maybe even a ghost story." -- Container

L'Éden et après ( visu )
3 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in French and held by 4 libraries worldwide
"A group of bored students are wiling away the hours at a club called "Eden", doing silly things like staging pseudo Russian roulette encounters, when suddenly they meet up with a mysterious stranger who offers them a way out of their boredom, with descriptions of Africa and a powder called something like "powder of fear". The leader of the gang (the quite lovely Catherine Jourdan) takes the powder, and the rest of the movie might be interpreted as her hallucination: rampant s & m imagery, tribal dances in the Middle East, her friends now seen as enemies, and a decrepit factory belching out odd effluent."--IMDB, viewed May 3, 2010

Indiqué sur la jaquette : Eves futures : C'est en poète facétieux que Jacques Baratier entre dans un atelier de la banlieue parisienne où l'on fabrique des mannequins pour les vitrines des magasins. Sous l'éclairage électrique qui dessine leurs silhouettes parfaites, ces corps féminins indéfiniment multipliés invitent à la rêverie. Les ouvriers et les ouvrières qui les produisent avec des gestes mécaniques semblent, quant à eux, imperméables au trouble érotique qui s'empare du cinéaste
