French Film by Susan Hayward

Book Description

The second edition of this innovative textbook brings together leading scholars to provide detailed analyses of twenty-two key films within the canon of French cinema, from the 1920s to the 1990s. Films discussed include: * masterpieces such as Renoir's La Bete Humaine and Carne's Les Enfants du Paradis * popular classics such as Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot and Ma Nuit chez Maud * landmarks of the New Wave such as Les 400 Coups and A bout de souffle * important films of the 1990s such as Nikita and La Haine The films are considered in relation to such issues as the history of French cinema, the social and cultural contexts of their production and reception, the relationship with Hollywood cinema, gender politics, authorship and genre. Each article is accompanied with a guide to further reading and a filmography of the director, and the new edition also includes a fully revised introduction and a bibliography on French cinema.

Books By Author Susan Hayward

French Costume Drama of the 1950s by Susan Hayward 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.

Nikita by Susan Hayward Nikita, Paperback (February 2010)

"Nikita" (1990) is the story of a nineteen-year old junkie, Nikita (Anne Parillaud) who is given a second chance in life through being trained to be - and becoming - a skilled assassin for the State. This work examines its reception as a popular film by audiences and critics, and looks at "The Assassin", the Hollywood remake of "Nikita".
