"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

On Capri, an Italian crew makes a German film of Homer's Odyssey; Fritz Lang directs with American money. Prokosch, the producer, with his sneer and red Alfa, holds art films in contempt and hires writer Javal to help Lang commercialize the picture. Against this backdrop, Javal's marriage to Camille, a young former typist, disintegrates. It opens with the couple talking in bed, she asking assurance that he finds her attractive. Later that day he introduces her to Prokosch, and, unawares, blunders unforgivably. The rest of the film portrays her, in their apartment and in public, expressing her hurt and change of heart and his slow grasp of the source of her contempt

La belle noiseuse by Jacques Rivette( Visual )

68 editions published between 1990 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A painter suffering artistic burnout is inspired by his meeting with Marianne at his Languedoc villa. She is persuaded to pose for him as he attempts to recover the 'masterpiece' he had abandoned ten years earlier. The film becomes a playing out of the process of creation (of a painting/a film), a battle of wills between the artist and his model, the artist's wife (who has been his model) and Marianne's lover. This package contains two versions of the film both prepared by Rivette - the four-hour version more in the nature of a performance piece, which explains the process in exhaustive detail (including the hand of an actual artist, Bernhard Dufour, at work) while the two-hour version (minus Dufour's hand) is brisker, more in the nature of a short story, which provides a different perspective on the relationships

Vous n'avez encore rien vu = You ain't seen nothin' yet by Alain Resnais( Visual )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in French and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on two works by the playwright Jean Anouilh,You ain't seen nothin' yet opens with a who's-who of French acting royalty (including Mathieu Amalric, Michel Piccoli and frequent Resnais muse Sabine Azema) being summoned to the reading of a late playwright's last will and testament. There, the playwright (Denis Podalydes) appears on a TV screen from beyond the grave and asks his erstwhile collaborators to evaluate a recording of an experimental theater company performing his Eurydice--a play they themselves all appeared in over the years. But as the film unspools, instead of watching passively, these seasoned thespians begin acting out the text alongside their youthful avatars, looking back into the past rather like mythic Orpheus himself. Gorgeously shot by cinematographer Eric Gautier on stylized sets that recall the French poetic realism of the 1930s, You ain't seen nothin' yet is an alternately wry and wistful valentine to actors and the art of performance from a director long fascinated by the intersection of life, theater and cinema

Le Doulos( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 341 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
