Léon Morin, prêtre = Leon Morin, priest( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Life during wartime is not simply men shooting at one another, but also women tending to their children. The widow Barny is one, an office worker in a rural village in occupied France, whose child's father was a Jewish man. When genial Italians occupy the village, all is well. Then the Nazis arrive, round up and shoot the Italians, and get down to the business of rounding up Jews. Barny has her daughter baptized as a Catholic for legal certification--and also sends her to hide on a farm in the country. A communist, she takes out her anger at this subterfuge by arguing with the priest, the young Father Morin. The priest and the widow begin a series of spiritually-cum-sexually-charged dialogues. Barny's crush on Father Morin offers a place for the film to examine religious conviction, while exploring the philosophy of belief and its meaning in everyday struggle
Alphaville by Jean-Luc Godard( Visual )

12 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this amalgam of sci-fi comic strip and film noir, tough American intergalactic secret agent, Lemmy Caution, goes on a mission to discover the fate of his predecessor in computer-run Alphaville, which recreates the legend of Orpheus and Euridyce (see Cocteau's Orphee). Coutard's photography of nocturnal Paris, 1965, creates Godard's sci-fi dystopia. Long bureaucratic corridors are Kafkaesque labyrinths of power at the centre of which lies death. The film is built on contrasts - between straight lines and circles, Max Steiner-like romanticism and discordant noise, between the super ego (Alpha 60) and the suppressed id (Lemmy). Lemmy is a reference to the popular arts where human qualities linger in a dehumanised world. Lemmy finds himself in a dictatorial computer-run society dedicated to technology where love and poetry are banned

One in particular has unfinished business with a family in the town, related to an unresolved affair of the heart
