While Michel tries to evade his creditors, a master criminal Pere La Tulipe, leads a detachment of police into the protagonist's building in a a parallel elusive effort. To add to the mounting disorder, Michel's girlfriend, Beatrice, unwittingly gives la Tulipe Michel's old jacket as a disguise, without realizing that it contains the winning ticket.

"Synopsis: One of the all-time comedy classics, René Clair's A nous la liberté tells the story of Louis, an escaped convict who becomes a wealthy industrialist. Unfortunately, his past returns (in the form of old jail pal Emile) to upset his carefully laid plans. Featuring lighthearted wit, tremendous visual innovation, and masterful manipulation of sound, A nous la liberté is both a potent indictment of mechanized modern society and an uproarious comic delight."--Website

The scientific education of girls : education beyond reproach? by la science et la culture Commission de la République française pour l'éducation( Book )

11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There are still comparatively few women pursuing scientific careers, or more generally playing significant roles in scientific and technological culture, in an age when science and technology are essential to national development worldwide. This book is aimed at drawing educators' and teacher trainers' attention to elements of discrimination in the teaching of mathematics and sciences. It focuses particularly on the daily practice of teaching, where ambiguities and discrimination are rarely perceived and seldom analysed by those involved." "Originating in UNESCO's project entitled 'Women, Science and Technology', intended to promote women's participation in the sciences, the work in this volume has been compiled by an international team of researchers, education specialists and authors. The book is of immediate interest to education professionals, but is also important for researchers and all those concerned with equality in education. In raising questions about the nature of education, it also hopes to provide answers that will help to change perceptions and thus behaviour."--Jacket
