Films of Luc Besson by Susan Hayward
Book DescriptionThis fascinating collection looks at the career and films of Luc Besson, one of the most acclaimed figures in international cinema. Contributions have been assembled from all over the world, and their different approaches reflect this geographical diversity. Films covered range from Besson's first feature, La Dernier Combat, to the international blockbusters The Fifth Element and Joan of Arc. The essays range from looking at costume design to musical scores, and the final chapter offers a transcript of a previously unpublished interview with the man himself. He is the only French director to have crossed over successfully during the 1990s into the blockbuster spectacular we associate with Hollywood cinema and yet this is only the second book in English on this major international director. The films of Luc Besson will make fascinating reading for anyone interested in the career and films of the 'master of spectacle'.

French Costume Drama of the 1950s, Paperback (June 2010)
Explores a diverse range of films including Guitry's "Napoleon" (1955), Vernay's "Le Comte de Monte Cristo" (1953), and Le Chanois' "Les Miserables" (1958) to expose the political cultural paradox between nostalgia for a lost past and the drive for modernization.
