French Cinema : From its Beginnings to the Present, Paperback Book

French Cinema : From its Beginnings to the Present Paperback


To a large extent, the story of French filmmaking is the story of moviemaking.

From the earliest flickering images of the late nineteenth century through the silent era, Surrealist influences, the Nazi Occupation, the glories of the New Wave, the rebirth of the industry in the 1990s with the exception culturelle, and the present, Remi Lanzoni examines a considerable number of the world's most beloved films.

Building upon his 2004 best-selling edition, the second edition of French Cinema maintains the chronological analysis, factual reliability, ease of use, and accessible prose, while at once concentrating more on the current generation of female directors, mainstream productions such as The Artist and The Intouchables, and the emergence of minority filmmakers (Beur cinema).
