Le Docteur Kersten, de nationalité hollandaise, s'était spécialisé avant la guerre dans le massage médical. Il avait suivi des cours à Londres et reçu un enseignement secret venu du Tibet. …

Nel 1957, all'epoca di questo reportage, in pieno periodo di decolonizzazione, Hong Kong e Macao erano gli ultimi avamposti europei in Estremo Oriente. Con la consueta curiosità e partecipazione, Joseph Kessel si immerge in questi brulicanti crocevia di popoli e culture al confine con la Cina di Mao e ne restituisce gli sconvolgenti contrasti: il fascino della natura selvaggia e l'urbanizzazione più sfrenata, le inimmaginabili ricchezze e l'estrema miseria, le attività commerciali su scala globale e i traffici locali più o meno leciti. Nei suoi vagabondaggi tra sfavillanti quartieri occidentali e squallidi tuguri, case da gioco e fumerie, Kessel ripercorre la storia dei luoghi e traccia i ritratti di personaggi straordinari come William Jardine, il principe del contrabbando di oppio, Aw Boon Haw, l'inventore del Balsamo di Tigre, Mr. Fu, il re dei giochi di Macao..

The most personal film by the underworld poet Jean-Pierre Melville, who had participated in the French Resistance himself, this tragic masterpiece, based on a novel by Joseph Kessel, recounts the struggles and sacrifices of those who fought in the Resistance. Lino Ventura, Paul Meurisse, Jean-Pierre Cassel, and the incomparable Simone Signoret star as intrepid underground fighters who must grapple with their conception of honor in their battle against Hitler’s regime. Long underappreciated in France and unseen in the United States, the atmospheric and gripping thriller Army of Shadows is now widely recognized as the summit of Melville’s career, channeling the exquisite minimalism of his gangster films to create an unsparing tale of defiance in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.

Catherine Deneuve’s porcelain perfection hides a cracked interior in one of the actress’s most iconic roles: Séverine, a Paris housewife who begins secretly spending her after­noon hours working in a bordello. This surreal and erotic late-sixties daydream from provocateur for the ages Luis Buñuel is an examination of desire and fetishistic pleasure (its characters’ and its viewers’), as well as a gently absurdist take on contemporary social mores and class divisions. Fantasy and reality commingle in this burst of cinematic transgression, which was one of Buñuel’s biggest hits.
