The cinema in France has long been recognized as among the most varied and accomplished in film history. Rediscovering French Film acutely explores aspects of this history, from the early silent productions to the films noirs of the 1940s and 1950s. The book brings together over thirty essays, reminiscences, and interviews accompanied by more than a hundred illustrations. Included are commentaries by French critics and filmmakers, the majority translated into English for the first time, as well as ten essays by film historians written specifically for this publication and several previously published texts of particular relevance to this period. Includes an Index.
