"Wendy is a fiery Manhattan author whose husband has just left her for another woman; Darwan is a soft-spoken taxi driver from India on the voyage of an arranged marriage. As Wendy sets out to reclaim her independence, she runs into a barrieer common to many lifelong New Yorkers: she's never learned to drive. When Wendy hires Darwan to teach her, her unraveling life and his calm restraint seem like an awkward fit. But as he shows her hot to take control of the wheel, and she coaches him on how to impress a woman, their unlikely friendship awakens them to the joy, humour, and love in starting life anew"--Container

"Ryu is a solitary girl whose fragile appearance is in stark contrast with the double life she leads, working nights at a Tokyo fish market and sporadically taking on jobs as a hit-woman. Mr Nagara is a powerful impresario mourning the loss of his daughter Midori, who has committed suicide. He blames David, a Spaniard who runs a wine business in Tokyo. Mr Nagara's employee, Ishida, was silently in love with Midori and hires Ryu to murder David. A sound engineer, obsessed with the sounds of the Japanese city and fascinated with Ryu, witnesses this love story which searches the shadows of the human soul, reaching deep into places where only silence has the power of eloquence."--Http://mapofthesoundsoftokyo.com

Resumen: Documental, dividido en cinco historias, que se propone dar voz a todos los miserables de la Tierra. Es también un humilde homenaje a las personas que nunca los abandonaron. Pero, sobre todo, es la voluntad de cinco directores por hacer visibles a sus verdaderos y únicos protagonistas. 1. "Cartas a Nora" (Coixet) trata sobre las chagas, una enfermedad infecciosa que afecta a millones de pobres en Hispanoamérica. 2. "Crímenes invisibles" (Wenders) saca a la luz la violencia sexual que padecen las mujeres en el Congo. 3. "Buenas noches, Ouma" (León de Aranoa) trata la dramática situación de miles de niños en Uganda. 4. "El sueño de Bianca" (Barroso) se refiere a los problemas con que tropieza la población de la República Centroafricana para conseguir medicamentos. 5. "La voz de las piedras" (Corcuera) plantea la grave situación que viven los desplazados en Colombia debido a la guerra entre el ejército y la guerrilla. (FILMAFFINITY)

Endless night ( visu )
2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
"Based on a remarkable true story, Endless Night captures the journey of high society woman, Josephine Peary (Academy Award® winner Juliette Binoche, The English Patient) and her perilous trip through one of the most inhospitable places in the world to join her husband, explorer Robert Peary, as he celebrates the discovery of the North Pole in 1908. Helped along the way by Bram Trevor (Gabriel Byrne, The Usual Suspects), Josephine is tested every step of the way, meeting with an Inuit woman named Allaka (Academy Award® nominee Rinko Kikuchi, Babel), who will strongly influence her rigid ideas concerning the world and life... forever. Also known as Nobody Wants the Night (Nadie quiere la noche), directed by award winning filmmaker Isabel Coixet (My Life Without Me, Elegy), Endless Night is an intensely moving tale of dedication and determination set against the harshest of earthly conditions." -- jbhifi.com.au

Ayer no termina nunca by Isabel Coixet( visu )
7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in Spanish and held by 21 libraries worldwide
"In 2017, the economy will have collapsed, Spain is ruined, financially and morally, and redemption and forgiveness seem impossible in the barren, windswept landscape. The confrontation between the two former lovers who have lost their son due to bad health care (again a result of the current collapse of public infrastructure) is played out as a chamber piece. Futuristic concrete architecture symbolizes their current battle ground which tears open the wounds that never healed."--simpson-barbara, on IMDb
