Two Movies adapted from literary works with roots going back to ancient Greece.

Two Movies about a marriage coming apart at the seams.

Two Movies about the conflict between idealism and reality.

Two Movies with completely different styles - one a remake of a classic of English cinema, the other a classic of the French New Wave.

Two Movies - one about teaching, the other about filmmaking, both about the death of a tradition.

Two Movies - one based on a play by a phenomenally successful English playwright, the other based on a novel by one of the greatest Italian writers of the 20th century.
