To the French, the cinema is an art form. At their best, they have established cinema verite, mastered literary filmmaking and film noir, invented the New Wave, and produced such unique and unclassified geniuses as Truffaut and Tati.From Les Enfants du paradis (Children of Paradise), which was made in the shadows of the occupation and opened as the Allies liberated Paris, to such modern films as Les Nuits fauves (Savage Nights), the first major cinematic treatment of AIDS, the 400 films here reflect the broad range of French filmmaking. Organized by French title, with see references from English and alternate titles, each entry includes year of release, cast and production credits, running time, and an essay blending plot synopsis and critical commentary, all fully indexed.
