Le scaphandre et le papillon = Diving bell and the butterfly by Julian Schnabel( Visual )

28 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in French and English and held by 1,641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The French editor of Elle magazine, Jean-Dominique Bauby, at the age of 43, suffered a stroke that paralyzed his entire body, except his left eye.

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

10 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in French and held by 822 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
Vincent & Theo by Robert Altman( Visual )

6 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inside and outside the claustrophobic art world of Paris in the late 19th century, two Dutch brothers try to make their mark. Vincent can only paint and rage. Soft souled, black-toothed, he spends his life in a series of barren rooms, taking his work as far as it can go. Theo can only try--mostly in vain for the length of both their lives--to sell his brother's work. Theo vicariously participates in his brother's art while working, marrying, and contracting syphilis like a 'normal' bourgeoisie. The brothers became the work: one brother who painted, and the other brother who believed that to support the painting was the most important thing he could possibly do with his lifetime
