Un long dimanche de fiançailles A very long engagement by Jean-Pierre Jeunet( visu )
2 editions published in 2005 in French and English and held by 1,093 libraries worldwide
In 1920, country girl Mathilde is living in Brittany with her aunt and uncle when she learns that her fiancé Manech was one of five French soldiers condemned to a barbarous death by their own side. Court-martialed for intentionally wounding themselves, their punishment is to be thrown into no man's land, unarmed and with their hands tied behind their backs. But Manech may have survived. Hiring a dogged old bird of a private detective and a lawyer to aid her, Mathilde is off on an adventure. She pursues her sleuthing through a flurry of letters, documents, and private interviews--hunting down the soldiers who were in the trenches with Manech--along with their lovers and relatives. She also discovers that she has a sort of doppelgänger: a Corsican prostitute pursuing a parallel investigation for another of the five, and murdering anyone who did her own beloved mate wrong. Mathilde will have to hurry to follow the clues piecing the story together before they are lost forever

"Leos Carax returns to cinema after a 13-year hiatus with HOLY MOTORS, a brilliant, visually striking film that was one of the toasts of this year's Cannes Film Festival. Apparently inspired by the filmmaker's fascination with the after hours life of stretch limousines, Denis Lavant plays Monsieur Oscar who, over the course of a single day, takes on 10 other guises, ranging from a gangster and ageing millionaire to a troubled parent and anarchic tramp. With impressive cameos by Eva Mendes and Kylie Minogue, HOLY MOTORS is the rarest of things - a true original." -- cover

La langue ne ment pas by Stan Neumann( visu )
9 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in French and held by 18 libraries worldwide
Le film de Stan Neumann est adapté des journaux de Victor Klemperer, écrits de 1933 à 1945 à Dresde. Victor Klemperer, professeur à l'université de Dresde, est un des rares Juifs allemands à avoir survécu en Allemagne pendant toute la durée du régime hitlérien. Il doit sa survie au courage de sa femme Eva, aryenne selon les critères nazis. La guerre finie, ils retrouvent leur maison à Dresde, désormais en zone d'occupation soviétique. Pendant toute cette période, Victor Klemperer, linguiste, a étudié l'évolution de la langue nazie. Dans son journal, il note que son "travail sur la langue était un moyen de légitime défense, il n'avait rien de scientifique. [Il] moissonnait sans plan préconçu, tout ce qui passait à [sa] portée, au hasard de [ses] lectures, des émissions de radio, des discours beuglés par les haut-parleurs". Son journal est aussi un des témoignages les plus précis et les plus impressionnants sur le destin des Juifs allemands sous le régime nazi. Au péril de sa vie, il note scrupuleusement toutes les mesures, toutes les interdictions, toutes les vexations subies. Il témoigne des "piqûres de moustique", la trame quotidienne de la persécution. En notant "l'interminable addition des brimades et des interdictions, écrit Stan Neumann, il finit par dessiner en creux les véritables figures de la tragédie et du courage." Le travail de Victor Klemperer sur la langue du Troisième Reich sera publié après la guerre sous le titre "LTI (Lingua Tertii Imperii), carnet de notes d'un philologue", constamment réédité depuis.
