Susan Hayward: French National Cinema
Publisher: Routledge 2Ed. (2005)
Pages: 408 / pdf / 3mb
This revised and updated version of a successful and established text, French National Cinema offers a thorough and much-needed historical overview of French cinema at a time when it continues to grow in popularity with films such as Amelie and Belleville Rendez-vous.
Brought wholly up to date to include political and social developments in French cinema in the 1990s, its fresh approach and groundbreaking new writing on the subject offers a much further understanding of French cinema and its relationship with the French national identity.
New subjects covered include:
- the GATT negotiations of 1993
- French cinema's increasing dependence on investment from television
- the rise of the multiplex
- the implications of the introduction of digital technology.
