Molière by Laurent Tirard( Visual )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in French and English and held by 882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moliere, a brilliant playwright, is released from prison by a rich man who wants him to direct a play where the rich man gets to seduce a pretty girl without his wife finding out. The wealthy Jourdain offers to cover that debt so that Molière's theatrical talents might help Jourdain win the heart of a certain widowed marquise. Disguised as a priest, Molière becomes a guest in Jourdain's palace on the subtext of teaching Jourdain the craft of the stage, all this to the annoyance of Jourdain's wife, Elmire. But, soon after, the confrontation between Elmire and Molière turns seductive. Jourdain enlists the aid of a well-connected and scheming acquaintance to help him pursue the widowed marquise
Poulet aux prunes = Chicken with plums by Marjane Satrapi( Visual )

21 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For their lovely, yet tragic film, graphic artists Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud reunite for a second story drawn from Satrapi's family's rich history. Instead of an animated feature, like Persepolis, they turn to live action. In pre-revolutionary Tehran, Nasser-Ali Khan (Mathieu Amalric) comes across as a curmudgeon who cares more about his career than his family, but there's more to the musician than meets the eye. With his son's help, he sets out to replace his broken violin, leading to adventures with a mysterious woman (Golshifteh Farahani) and a magical merchant (Jamel Debbouze, delightful), but when no suitable replacement materializes, Nasser announces his plan to pack it in. As he lies in bed, waiting to die, he reflects on incidents involving a judgmental clockmaker (Serge Avedikian) and his headstrong mother (Isabella Rossellini). Then, he meets the Angel of Death (narrator Edouard Baer), who gives him a glance at the fates that await his loved ones, much as in A Christmas Carol (Chiara Mastroianni plays his adult daughter). Meanwhile, his wife (Maria de Medeiros) plies him with delicacies, like chicken with plums, but he insists that death is the only solution, which makes this sound like a grim affair, except Satrapi and Paronnaud find the humor in the scenario and the beauty in the milieu, combining stylized sets and hand-drawn backdrops. Much as with Sean Penn's guitarist in Woody Allen's Sweet and Lowdown, Amalric never strives to make Nasser-Ali likable, but he succeeds in making this stubborn man understandable. --Kathleen C.

Les herbes folles = Wild grass by Alain Resnais( Visual )

7 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Résumé: Comédie fantaisiste. Sexagénaire marié et père de deux enfants adultes, Georges Palet a tendance à fabuler son existence. Ainsi, lorsqu'il trouve dans un stationnement souterrain le portefeuille de Marguerite Muir, dentiste célibataire dans la cinquantaine, il s'imagine déjà vivre une idylle avec elle, d'autant plus qu'elle semble partager sa passion pour l'aviation, comme en fait foi son permis de pilote privé trouvé dans ses papiers. Ne parvenant pas à la joindre au téléphone, il se résout à remettre l'item volé au commissariat. Peu de temps après, durant un souper familial, Georges reçoit un appel de madame Muir, qui tient à le remercier, mais en refusant tout net de le rencontrer. Obsédé, le rentier ne cesse de lui écrire et de lui laisser des messages dans sa boîte vocale. Il va même jusqu'à crever les pneus de sa voiture pour l'empêcher de s'échapper. Sans porter plainte, madame Muir envoie deux policiers chez Georges, pour le convaincre de cesser son manège. Or, lorsque cet homme, au fond inoffensif, sort de sa vie, la dentiste, intriguée par son comportement, cherche à son tour à le revoir. [(c) Médiafilm] [SDM]

Une version non conventionnelle, qui revitalise l'humour caustique de l'œuvre originale. Les dix-sept cadors qui piaffent derrière les pupitres de cette turbulente machine à jazz ne se contentent pas de faire allégeance, avec classe, à Count Basie, Duke Ellington ou Thad Jones. Ils considèrent surtout que cet orchestre d'amis triés sur le volet leur permet d'expérimenter des idées neuves tout en revisitant les perles d'un répertoire insubmersible.
