L'armée des ombres = Army of shadows by Jean-Pierre Melville( Visual )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in French and held by 813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'Armee des Ombres is a stark and unvarnished story about Resistance fighters in Vichy France in 1942-43 when the French leadership allowed the Nazis to occupy the country. The members of this army are cold, hungry, desperate men and women, with false names and no addresses, who can be betrayed in an instant by a traitor or an accident. They know they will probably die. A meditation on the nature of resistance and the price of courage, these heroes can save their own country only by cutting themselves apart from it. Entangled in the political turmoil engulfing France in the wake of May '68--as a result received poorly there--the film was not distributed in the US until 2006
Casque d'or by Jacques Becker( Visual )

50 editions published between 1951 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What follows is a story of love, death, friendship and jealousy during the Belle Epoque
La ronde by Max Ophuls( Visual )

29 editions published between 1950 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Ronde translates as 'the round' which can refer to the policeman's beat, a circle of dancers, or a carousel, all of which this circular collection of interconnected short stories resembles. Each scene is built around a specific pair, and when one member of the pair breaks away from his or her lover, he or she then moves on to the next, introducing the partner that will lead on to the next pair, and so on until we are back where we started. Many of these lovers are seeking something they've lost in arms that look familiar but that belong to strangers. La ronde is the bittersweet note sounded by the circular nostalgia of the heart
Le Doulos by Jean-Pierre Melville( Visual )

4 editions published in 2008 in French and Undetermined and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the title screens explain, in gangster slang, 'doulos' means 'hat.' In the slang shared by criminal and police, 'doulos' also designates the person who wears it: the informer. Through shadowy back streets on the edge of Paris, an ingenious cat and mouse game is played as two underworld characters, seemingly working against each other, find themselves in a deadly entanglement of their own making but infinitely larger than both of them. Faugel, a thief recently released from prison, and Silien, Faugel's best friend and all-around suspicious character, are up against shady nightclub owner Nuttheccio, and the police's Capt. Clain, ruthless as any criminal. The hapless gangsters know two things: their sense of honor is the only thing they can take with them to the grave, and that date with the grave is coming all too soon. By Jean-Pierre Melville, French poet of crime cinema, full of shadows, night, trench coats, guns, tough guys, cigarettes, slinky dames, cocktail bars, crooked cops, betrayal, and loot
Les misérables by Victor Hugo( Visual )

8 editions published between 1958 and 2013 in French and English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henri-Georges Clouzot's Inferno( Visual )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in French and English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1964, director Henri-Georges Clouzot (Diabolique, The raven, The wages of fear, The Picasso mystery) chose Romy Schneider, age 26, and Serge Reggiani, 42, to star in L'enfer (Inferno), an enigmatic and original project with an unlimited budget. Reggiani was to play Marcel Prieur, the manager of a modest hotel in provincial France who becomes possessed by the demons of jealousy. Intended to be a cinematic "event" upon its release, three weeks after shooting began on Inferno, things took a turn for the worse. The project was stopped, and the images, which were said to be "incredible", would remain unseen ... until now. Working closely with Clouzot's widow, Inès, Serge Bromberg reconstructs Clouzot's original vision, filling and explaining the gaps with new interviews, re-enactments and Clouzot's own notes and storyboards. Midway between documentary and narrative, Henri-Georges Clouzot's Inferno unveils, for the first time in nearly half a century, these luminous visions. It delivers an in-depth look at the masterpiece that might have been and explores the unnerving parallels between an artist and his work, featuring the original astonishing color expressionism that Clouzot captured on celluloid, a visual exploration of the director's own anxiety. One of the great, unfinished works in film history, Inferno, by Henri-Georges Clouzot was an audaciously experimental film with a virtually unlimited budget that was stopped only three weeks into production. Working closely with Clouzot's widow, Inè, Serge Bromberg and Ruxandra Medrea reconstructs Clouzot's original vision, filling and explaining the gaps with new interviews, re-enactments and Clouzot's own notes and storyboards, delivering an in-depth look at the masterpiece that might have been
Le Doulos by Jean-Pierre Melville( Visual )

34 editions published between 1962 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le Doulos pays tribute to the American gangster films of the 1940's whilst retaining a uniquely French perspective. Where the Hollywood noir strives for clarity and simplification, Melville's films and Le Doulos in particular, retain their ambiguity, leading to a major coupe du théâtre at the film's finale
Vincent, François, Paul-- et les autres = Vincent, François, Paul and the others-- by Claude Sautet( Visual )

32 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The film "lets us into the lives of a group of friends who are on a weekend trip in the country together. ... [It] tells the somewhat compelling and yet human story of four couples who discover that behiond the camaraderie and merriness of their friendship, lies a sea of regrets and deceit as stories unfold and small tragedies appear."--Container

Les portes de la nuit by Marcel Carné( Visual )

30 editions published between 1946 and 2018 in French and Undetermined and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dernier fruit de la collaboration entre les dialogues poétiques de Jacques Prévert et les images réalistes de Marcel carné, Les portes de la nuit dépeint avec intensité un amour impossible dans le Paris d'après-guerre, mêlé à l'épineuse question de la recherche des collabos. Ce chef-d'oeuvre associe parfaitement récit social, discours engagé et romantisme poétique. Très mal accuielli lors de sa sortie, l'oeuvre de Carné est aujourd'hui considéré comme le dernier grand film du réalisateur." (Source : jaquette)
The leopard = Il Gattopardo by Luchino Visconti( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in Italian and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Luchino Visconti's The Leopard (Il Gattopardo) is an epic on the grandest possible scale. The film recreates, with nostalgia, drama, and opulence, the tumultuous years of Italy's Risorgimento, when the aristocracy lost its grip and the middle classes rose and formed a unified, democratic Italy. Burt Lancaster stars as the aging prince watching his culture and fortune wane in the face of a new generation, represented by his upstart nephew (Alain Delon) and his beautiful fiancée (Claudia Cardinale). Awarded the Palme d'Or at the 1963 Cannes Film Festival, The Leopard translates Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa's novel, and the history it recounts, into a truly cinematic masterpiece. This release boasts a stunning digital transfer from the original 70mm negative materials, with restored image and sound, supervised by director of photography Giuseppe Rotunno and is presented in its original wide screen aspect ratio.--Kanopy
