Topaze by Marcel Pagnol( Visual )

3 editions published between 1936 and 1996 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1929 Pagnol's play Topaze was one of the most successful French stage productions ever. A Hollywood adaptation with John Barrymore and Myrna Loy was memorable in its American way but this version with Louis Jouvet (who played the role on stage) and Edwige Feuillère is far closer to the original. The delightfully cynical satire chronicles the metamorphosis of a timid, persecuted, not too clever schoolteacher whose lessons emphasize ethics and morality, into a dishonest but decidedly more confident individual when he is thrust into a crooked business scheme."--Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive program note

La grande illusion: Based on a true story from World War I, this powerful film tells of an attempted escape from a German prison of three French soldiers.

Una partida de campo = Partie de campagne( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Narra la historia de una familia que pasa un domingo a orillas del Sena. Mientras los hombres de la familia duermen la siesta, unos jóvenes remeros invitan a la madre y a la hija a dar un paseo en barca; un paseo que se convertirá en algo más que en una inocente excursión fluvial. Se trata de un mediometraje de 40 minutos, dirigido por Jean Renoir y basado en el relato de Guy de Maupassant, con el que el cineasta hace un homenaje a su padre, el pintor impresionista Pierre Auguste Renoir. Sus cuadros son convocados en el film, lo que provoca que confluya una reflexión dialéctica sobre las relacio-nes cine-pintura y sus operaciones de sentido. (FILMAFFINITY)
