L'eclisse by Michelangelo Antonioni( Visual )

112 editions published between 1962 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 1,148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'Eclisse was the final film in Antonioni's informal trilogy of the modern malaise (following L'Avventura and La Notte), a series of films that redefined the concept of narrative cinema. Filmed in sumptuous black and white and full of scenes of lush, strange beauty, it tells the story of Vittoria (the beautiful Monica Vitti - Red Desert), a young woman who leaves her older lover (Francisco Rabal - Viridiana), then drifts into a relationship with a confident, ambitious young stockbroker (Alain Delon - Le Cercle Rouge). Using the architecture of Rome as a backdrop for this doomed affair, Antonioni achieves the apotheosis of his style in this return to the theme that preoccupied him the most: the difficulty of forming true connections amidst the meaninglessness of the modern world

The drama unfolds in a series of episodes merging into each other in which each of the five sons moves in turn to occupy the centre of the stage. Nowell-Smith suggests that each brother, in a sense, represents a certain kind of solution to the problems faced by a southern immigrant family in this historical moment (the 1950s in Milan) yet they are not typical

The girl on a motorcycle by John Escott( Visual )

18 editions published between 1968 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A wildly sexy time capsule from the swinging sixties, The girl on a motorcycle (1968) stars Alain Delon (Le samoura) and Marianne Faithfull, two actors at the height of their impressive cool, as lovers with a taste for the open road. Faithfull stars as Rebecca, a bored housewife who bolts from her home in the French countryside to visit her lover, Daniel (Delon), in Germany. Wearing nothing but a form-fitting black leather suit (the film was re-released in the U.S. as Naked under leather), the lusty Rebecca races across the country, and in flashback remembers the start of their affair. She recalls the initial, furtive glances in her father's bookstore, her elaborate sexual fantasies and their long-awaited consummation. Most important of all is the motorcycle itself, a gift from Daniel that seems to give her more pleasure than any man could deliver. Directed by legendary cinematographer Jack Cardiff (The red shoes) in pulsating psychedelic hues, The girl on a motorcycle has emerged from obscurity to become more than a cult favorite; it is a touchstone film of 1960s Euro youth culture
Il Gattopardo by Luchino Visconti( Visual )

87 editions published between 1962 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in the 1860s during the years of the Risorgimento - the making of modern Italy - which saw the emergence of the bourqeoisie at the expense of the landed aristocracy. Visconti clearly identified with Don Fabrizio ('the Leopard'), the ageing patriarch of an aristocratic Sicilian family. He is the first to understand the inevitability of the changes. 'If everything is to remain the same, everything must change' is the cynical observation of Don Fabrizio's young nephew, Tancredi, who adjusts to the new order in a manner impossible for Fabrizio. Lampedusa's novel, steeped in lethargy and inertia, was filmed by Visconti in the enervating Sicilian summer. The film culminates in the ball scene which stands as a kind of metaphor for transformiso - the emergence of a new order as reactionary as the old
