Product Overview

"Unraveling French Cinema" provides a much needed introduction to the complexities of French film for students, cineastes, and the movie-loving public.

Looks at the differences between French and American national cinema

Explores how French directors shape their films around two potentially divergent goals: the narration of a story and an elaboration of some theory about film itself.

Demystifies the "difficulty" of French cinema, allowing the American movie-goer to enjoy films that are too often perplexing at a first viewing.

Offers extended analyses of classic, New Wave, and contemporary French films--including "L''Atalante," "Adele H.", "The Rules of the Game," and "Cache."
