2 x 50 Years of French Cinema.[Videorecording]
Directed by Anne-Marie Mieville and Jean-Luc Goddard. Rather than exulting the achievements of the last hundred years this entry laments the ways that cinema has been forgotten. It is a work of sadness, but also of mischievous and quirky humour. 1998.

"The social unrest of May 1968 and the rise of French feminism in its aftermath led to a spate of French fantasy films on the subjects of female vampirism and warfare between the sexes. The protagonist of such films was often the surviving female victim and heroine, the 'Final Girl,' who has become so prevalent a figure in US horror films since the late 1970s. The French vampire and gender warfare films of the 1970s, such as Bertrand Blier's 'Calmos,' and Louis Malle's 'Black Moon,' mostly constitute a male response to the feminist movement."

The full range of France's regional phonological diversity has not been well represented in the French cinema. The early example of Jean Renoir, who insisted on authenticity and used many different accents in his films, has not been followed. The influence of the New Wave films has led to the lack of attention to regional accents. Article text is in French." [Expanded Academic Index]

Though many believed the onslaught of American films and the subsequent Coca-Cola culture were aimed at France, the real intended victim was communist ideology. American cinema of the time also offered the French audience alternative views of psychological and artistic interpretations." [Expanded Academic Index]

"A renaissance in French cinema by women has taken place in the mid-1990s. Almost two-thirds of the students admitted to French film academies are women and noted actresses such as Daniele Delorme, Isabelle Adjani and Jeanne Moreau have been active in governmental aid to French cinema. With women receiving the training and the financing to transform their creative vision into reality, this creative vision is really starting to show in French cinema. Twelve French films and Jane Campion's 'The Piano' provide the vehicles for studying this vision. The protagonists of these films are not married and they show a Medusean strength. In speaking of female silence, these films abolish such silence." [Expanded Academic Index]

"Art, cinema and Paristitution: social context and visual narrative in Impressionist art and New Wave cinema." Word & Image v. 12 (July/September 1996) p. 291-307
"The writer compares Impressionism with French New Wave cinema. Each movement was initially labeled for journalistic convenience. Neither was a homogeneous school with a unified program and clearly defined principles or technique. Each almost entirely male group coalesced in Paris in reaction to a prevailing orthodoxy. Neither phenomenon would have been possible were it not for a corresponding revolution in their respective technologies. Part of the modernity of the New Wave can be attributed to the use of new lightweight Eclair Cameflex cameras, Nagra sound-recording technology, new lighting equipment, and fast film stock. These innovations allowed the new breed of directors to bypass the conventions of the despised "cinema de qualite" and capture existence on the move and in all its detail. Similarly, the effects of the introduction of screw-capped tubes of readymade paint from the 1830s onwards included making painting outdoors much easier. To support this argument, a number of films by Jean-Luc Godard are discussed." [Art Index]

"Filming ghosts: French cinema and the Algerian war." Modern Fiction Studies Autumn 1992 v38 n3 p787(18)
"Two French films explore and describe the relationship between French politics and the Algerian war. Patrick Rotman and Bertrand Tavernier's 'The Undeclared War' consists of interviews of conscripts for the war. Their varied experiences recreate the politics in France and Algeria and the latter's exploitation by the former. The film confronts oppression, torture and exploitation of the natives of Algeria, and poignantly expresses memories of the past. Alain Resnais's 'Muriel' portrays Algeria in the archetypal figure of Muriel, who is tortured and killed. Muriel's non-presentation on-screen makes her a preternatural woman of symbolic significance." [Expanded Academic Index]

The article discusses the attribution of feminism on the development of French film in the 21st century. According to the author, Alison Butler reveals that feminist film theory was first characterized in 1970s as a form of opposition which deals with narrative and entertainment film that has developed to become an identifiable boundaries in film. It also highlights several films along with their directors that embraces the concept of feminism in the productions of films wherein female directors has become a majority sector in the industry. In addition, the article notes that feminism in motion picture depicts freedom and gender equality within the society that provides a positive impact in the industry.

Author's Abstract: COPYRIGHT 1998 Northern Illinois University "This article uses the French cinema of the occupation as a case study for inquiry into the function of stylistic analysis within film historiography. Centering on techniques of film sound, the case study concerns a shift away from direct sound, the standard sound technique in France during the 1930s, and toward postsynchronization, which became the norm during the occupation. The basic methodological claim is that the descriptive analysis of film style can reveal a pre-reflective aspect of film practice inaccessible to critical approaches that attempt to explain style with reference to causes external to the domain of film practice."

"Contemporary French hip-hop culture's music and films demonstrate how the urban multiethnic communities of France are being reconstructed to bring the voice of the disconnected into the mainstream. As these artistic modes exemplify, France's identity is no longer rooted in the tenets of assimilationist theory which marginalize ethnic minorities on the peripheries of "Franqais-de-souche" culture."

The years since 1995 have seen the return of the political to French cinema, but this is a cinema that can no longer feed off an elaborated leftist project, and that must therefore take new forms. After a brief contextualization, this article seeks to account for the novelty and effectiveness of this cinema. It first delineates its main contours, and then turns to the work of Žižek, Balibar and Rancière to cast light on certain of its key features. Žižek is used to engage with the capacity of the films to reconnect ‘subjective’ violences to the systemic; Balibar is used to explore the newness of the films spatial economy and the way they deal with the ‘unworldly’ universalism of contemporary capitalism; Rancière's concept of the sensorium is mobilized to underscore the productive work the films do as they contest dominant visibilities and audibilities.

"There has been a growing vogue for shock tactics in French cinema over the past ten years. Images and subjects that were once the provenance of splatter films, exploitation flicks, and porn proliferate in the high-art environs of a national cinema whose provocations have historically been political, formal, or philosophical, or, at their most immoderate, assimilable as emanations of an artistic movement (Surrealism, mostly). One suspects that this recent tendency toward the willfully transgressive, by directors like François Ozon, Gaspar Noé, Catherine Breillat, Philippe Grandrieux, and Bruno Dumont, is a narcissistic response to the collapse of ideology in a society traditionally defined by political polarity and theoretical certitude."

In this article the author examines aspects of French New Wave cinema and the reception accorded those films in the United States. The central focus of the article is on the author's contention that the lionization of the motion picture directors Claude Chabrol, François Truffaut, and Jean-Luc Godard, has obscured the importance of earlier films that predated the New Wave and made its success possible such as Agnès Varda's "La Pointe-Compte," the popular motion pictures of Brigitte Bardot, or the films of Jacques Demy.

In this article the author examines two films of the French New Wave cinema, "The Games of Love," directed by Philippe de Broca and "Tonight or Never," directed by Michel Deville. The films are discussed in light of the tradition of French male sexual licentiousness. The central focus of the article is on the author's contention that the gender imbalance and misogyny contained in these motion pictures and other films of the New Wave is hidden behind the modernity that pervades the films and reflects attitudes in French society at the time.

"The art of borrowing: French popular cinema before the New Wave." Studies in French Cinema, 2004, Vol. 4 Issue 1, p53-64, 12p
UC users only
After the Second World War, French popular cinema sought to position itself clearly in relation to Hollywood cinema. A number of directors borrowed from Hollywood genres with a view to competing with them as well as demystifying them. This was particularly the case with Henri Decoin and Jacques Becker, who adapted the Hollywood police thriller to the French context, and with Bernard Borderie and Richard Pottier who pastiched both the police thriller and the Western. This article will maintain that French popular cinema of the 1950s should not be seen just as a foil to the New Wave, but as an important cinema in its own right, not least because of its complex relationship with Hollywood in the assertion of a French identity.

"A discussion on the portrayal of agricultural life in France in the 1950s seen through the works of amateur cinematographers and government propaganda films is presented. The 1950s was a period when rural-urban migration was increasing. Despite substantial productivity increases due to modern farming methods, many farmers were still impoverished. The films depicting agricultural life were made to discourage rural migration to the cities and the traditional rural values of agricultural people were presented in a positive light. The positive and often idealistic portrayals of French rural society were, however, filmed at a time when traditional rural life was becoming antiquated." [Expanded Academic Index]

"The lesbian film movement in France has been stunted by notions of art being independent from politics or gender. Consequently, the film industry is reluctant to pander to a specific group, and lesbians are reluctant to seek external justification through the motion picture medium. Some feel that to do so would be to ghettoize their lifestyle on film. However, the influence of lesbian filmmakers from abroad is beginning to prompt a movement inside of France. The French government is also promoting cultural specificity within the film industry." [Expanded Academic Index]

"Irma Vep, directed by Olivier Assayas, and Les Miserables, directed by Claude Lelouch, rethink the legacy of the French New Wave for the viability of 1990s French cinema. These films make a romantic attempt to transcending the modernist French New Wave through the nontraditional uses of New Wave stars: In Les Miserables, the hero is played by Jean-Paul Belmondo, the star of Jean-Luc Godard's Breathless, while, in Irma Vep, Jean-Pierre Leaud, an actor in the films of New Wave director François Truffaut, is an allegorical stand-in for Truffaut. Reacting to a crisis in French cinema at the millennium, revolving around the inability of New Wave's modernist techniques to compete commercially with the Hollywood juggernaut, the films attempt a re-invention through very different styles: Les Miserables uses an emotionally driven Romanticism that constructs Belmondo as a lovable character, whereas Irma Vep employs a postmodern irony to expose the collapse of French cinema under the burden of its New Wave past via the nervous breakdown of the character played by Leaud."

"The paper examines Claude Berri's 1993 film adaptation of Emile Zola's novel Germinal as a failed attempt to intervene in the debate about contemporary social injustice and economic inequality. In order to add to the film's authenticity and to argue for its contemporary relevance, Berri shot it in northern France and worked with a considerable number of nonprofessional actors, many of whom were miners or came from a mining background. However, by marketing the Germinal story as a national myth, and by emphasizing its memorial value, Berri in fact emptied Germinal of the subversive social and political power that was carried by the novel and thus undermined the film's potential for social criticism."

"The case of Marcel Pagnol." Literature-Film Quarterly v23, n3 (July, 1995):204 (5 pages).
Marcel Pagnol, a French playwright and director, has become paradoxically popular due to the regionalism of his work. Pagnol on account of his relationship with the cinema, called himself the defender of filmed theater, thus making his work more indefensible. This is an example of avoiding certain things in adaptation of theater to the screen. Pagnol's film 'Manon of the Spring' allows critics to clarify the misunderstandings regarding the quality of his films.

Marcel Pagnon, a filmmaker with the Academie Francaise, wrote several novels which he turned into film. Among these novels is 'Manon des sources,' which became a film containing nostalgia for a world that lacks pollution, land degradation, law, and economic rationalism. The film and novel were heavily influenced by Greek ideology, including the notion of hubris.

"Part of a special section on the late director Robert Bresson's working methods. Humbert Balsan discusses his experiences working with Bresson as an actor in Lancelot du lac (1974) and as an assistant director on Le Diable probablement (1977). He observes that Bresson's directing technique in the former film involved taking something very personal about the actor and making it correspond to the character he had created. He also describes his work on Le Diable probablement, during which Bresson, obsessed by the quality of movement, paid very close attention to the framing of the shots. He notes that Bresson never pretended to create an "oeuvre" but was driven mainly by the intensity of creating, with an artisan's obsession with quality." [Art Index]

"Part of a special section featuring tributes to film director Robert Bresson, who died on December 22, 1999. Film historian David Bordwell discusses Bresson's place in the history of cinematic style. For Bresson, close-ups and cutting, techniques valorized by the silent-film avant-garde, constituted real cinema art, cinematography, and writing in and through cinema. His use of these techniques drew him surprisingly close to the Soviet filmmakers of the 1920s. He pressed further, however, applying the Soviets' lesson of abstraction, fragmentation, and assemblage to the audible world" [Art Index]

Bresson discusses several topics, including the difference between films that are simply photographed theater and true cinema, which must be absolutely free of all theatrical expression; cinema as the most appropriate art for expressing character; cinema's potential as a viable way to carry out psychological investigation; the problem of responsibility for the work of art in cinema, where the work is done in a team; and his opinion of Japanese cinema."

Part of a special section featuring tributes to film director Robert Bresson, who died on December 22, 1999. Novelist Dennis Cooper assesses the significance of Bresson's work in his own life. On a practical level, Bresson's work constructed Cooper's sensibility as a writer by offering up the notion that an artwork's style could embody a kind of pragmatism that, if sufficiently rigorous and devoted to a sufficiently powerful subject, would eliminate the need within the work for an explicit philosophical or moral standpoint. Cooper feels that Bresson's films are, for him, the greatest works of art ever made.

"Part of a special section on the late director Robert Bresson's working methods. Daniel Couteau discusses his experience working with Bresson as a sound-effects engineer on almost all Bresson's films, starting with Un condamne a mort s'est echappe (1956). Over the 30 years of collaboration between the two, Bresson's working methods never changed: Totally disinterested in realism, he never kept the sounds from the filming, rerecording them all with Couteau afterward. For example, he was interested in the sound of steps, and he and Couteau produced thousands of footfall sounds together. Each film was problematic because Bresson was so hard to please, knowing exactly what he was looking for." [Art Index]

It appears that the things Bresson's films deal with are anathema to contemporary filmmaking, such as the characters' abject internal revolt against reality and their obdurate unlikability Bresson shocks viewers into reconsidering their whole existence, making them see that what is right in front of them is the infinitely strange, unassimilable horror that it is. He ruins our taste for the mediocre, and his films seem necessary in a way that others simply do not." [Art Index]

"Part of a special section on the cinema of Robert Bresson. Bresson's aim in cinema is to sound out the profound mysteries that lurk within the spaces between objects, actions, and emotions. The fact that he has been so extraordinarily good at it for so long is due to his profound sense of harmony between images and sounds. No filmmaker has ever made pictures that are at once so concentrated and so expansive, so precise in their mapping of action, and so careful to allow for a resonance beyond the fantasy of nearly everyone lese who has ever worked in the medium. The writer discusses Bresson's body of work." [Art Index]

"Four nights of a dreamer." Film Comment v. 35 no. 4 (July/August 1999) p. 43-6
"Part of a special section on the work of director Robert Bresson. Although Four Nights of a Dreamer was condemned for being out of step with the times when it was released in 1971, it is now possible to view it as a genuinely great work. Based on a 19th-century short story by Dostoevsky that had previously been filmed by Visconti, the movie tells of a series of encounters between a young man, played by Guillaume des Forets, and a young woman, played by Isabelle Weingarten, in post-1968 France. It depicts the growing consciousness of postadolescence and portrays youth as an abstract, eternal entity. As with other movies dealing with youth in the post-1968 period that did not tie in with the agenda of young people, Four Nights of a Dreamer was deemed invalid at the time. When viewed as a portrait of youth under particular circumstances rather than as a failed, conservative portrayal of the counterculture, however, Four Nights of a Dreamer becomes a work of great beauty."

"A discussion of Notes sur le cinematographe, by the late director Robert Bresson. In the work, which was written over the course of 25 years, Bresson addresses several themes using his idea of the "cinematograph"--the enemy of "cinema" or "filmed theater." At times, he writes as if to become lyrical and almost obscure, while elsewhere, he gives precise reasons for the visions that were soon to be transformed into film. He perhaps liked people to observe the way he thought, and in this context, the Notes can be considered a theoretical treatise. Outside this context, however, the work is neither treaty, guide, nor the author's intimate journal: With elements such as short texts, single phrases, quotes, and aphorisms, it is poetry."

"L'argent." Film Comment v. 35 no. 4 (July/August 1999) p. 51+
"Part of a special section on the work of director Robert Bresson. Bresson's L'Argent portrays a world that is cold, desolate, barren, empty, and mainly populated by people who resemble insensitive, amoral robots. Central to the plot is the idea of money, which inevitably traps all the characters involved in the story. The main character, Yvon (Christian Patey), is turned into a murderer by the mechanisms of capitalist society. The penultimate sequence, in which traces of several murders that Yvon has committed are discovered, encapsulates the deeply disconnected atmosphere of the movie. The movie's portrayal of despair with the modern, mechanized world makes it easy to regard the film as Bresson's most secular and materialist work." [Art Index]

"The writer counters common criticisms of Robert Bresson's cinema. Many regard a Bresson film as a punishing experience due to the alleged "severity" of his style and the bleakness of his narratives. However, it is his inimitable, uncompromising, and increasingly minimal filmic style that offers the context within which to understand his rejection of given conventions--both of professional actors and of the dramatic structure of "scenes" in favor of a neutral series of sequences. Some critics' claim that Bresson had withdrawn the possibility of redemption in his stories undervalues the convulsive and healing powers of art, and how he blended his own art with morality. His choice of subjects and themes, his concern with form, and his insistence on nonprofessional performers and on the nuances of style suggest an autobiographical value for his films that warrants close and extensive scrutiny. However assured and clear his early or later narratives appear, they are never as simple as critical judgment has often made them seem. The writer reviews some DVD releases of Bresson's films."

Part of a special section featuring tributes to film director Robert Bresson, who died on December 22, 1999. Artist Stephen Prina discusses the work of Bresson. Bresson restores the mechanics of the body so often superseded by language, showing what a body can do, how it turns, raises a hand, opens a door, passes through, and then closes it. He is able to isolate a gesture and then transform it into a materialist metonym for a whole life.

"The writer discusses the significance of the use of the narrator's voice in the late director Robert Bresson's film Journal d'un cure de campagne. In several of Bresson's works, he set himself the task of transposing a work of literature into film. In cinema, the problem is not to find a visual equivalent for the words of a novel, but to propose an equivalent for the meaning and nonmeaning proper to literature. The writer discusses Journal d'un cure de campagne as an example of this idea, noting that it is mainly in the relationship between the evenness of the disembodied narrator's voice that reads the text and the difference of the embodied voices that modulate it that this dramatic art of the voice is formed--this way of investigating images through words that will always be Bresson's great creation."

"Part of a special section on the cinema of director Robert Bresson. Robert Bresson's Diary of a Country Priest is a film about imprisonment. As he carries out he duties of his ministry, the priest of Ambricourt attempts to act as a link between his parish and the local population. He is finally just another body, however, a dark blot on the landscape, a mere spectator who becomes becomes transparent in the eyes of his flock. The film is, therefore, the story of a failure, of a man who is entirely incapable of leaving an impression on the world." [Art Index]

Robert Bresson's Mouchette tells the story of a young girl who transforms cruelty against her into an inverted liberation through the perverse and spiteful action of suicide. Alcoholism is the force of destiny and the puppeteer manipulating the automatism of the film's characters. Bresson takes pains to illustrate how deep the roots of alcoholism are in France, how surely the disease is passed on from father to son, and how much harm it does to women. Mouchette is, above all, a tragedy of alcoholism, except it is from the viewpoint of the nondrinking recipient rather than the drinkers themselves." [Art Index]

"Part of a special section on the cinema of director Robert Bresson. Robert Bresson's Pickpocket examines the unknowability of soul and destiny. It is a spare, frugal, elliptical film, with a fast, fluid, twisting narrative that abounds in ellipses, gaps, and silences, which make the central character's growth from a devious thief to a straight citizen a strange transformation. The film is solidly traditional but also unconventional. It reconciles realism and auteurist subjectivity by its election from, and stylization of, real possibilities. Mainstream devices, such as riddle and ellipsis, are pushed to the point of qualitative change, but it is less a subversion than a new, adaptative mutation of an old Christian ethos. The writer discusses the themes and patterns in Pickpocket." [Art Index]

"In an editorial, the writer discusses four recent French films that explore sex: Patrice Chereau's Intimacy, Catherine Breillat's Romance and Fat Girl, and Virginie Despentes and Coralie Trinh Thi's Baise-Moi. These films have not only aroused Renéwed controversy over the censorship of sexuality in the cinema, but also given rise to a newer, more nuanced debate about the crossover of explicit sex from porn theaters to art-house cinemas. Because of their focus on female sexual desire, these sexually explicit films are more poignant than titillating, setting out to move viewers emotionally rather than to arouse them physically."

She argues that Breillat's films playfully dismantle the "tragic" conception of sexual identity evident in the writings of Lacan and that they offer instead of this a vision of sexuality as a fundamentally "constructed", contingent, and culturally variable-phenomenon."

"There has been a growing vogue for shock tactics in French cinema over the past ten years. Images and subjects that were once the provenance of splatter films, exploitation flicks, and porn proliferate in the high-art environs of a national cinema whose provocations have historically been political, formal, or philosophical, or, at their most immoderate, assimilable as emanations of an artistic movement (Surrealism, mostly). One suspects that this recent tendency toward the willfully transgressive, by directors like François Ozon, Gaspar Noé, Catherine Breillat, Philippe Grandrieux, and Bruno Dumont, is a narcissistic response to the collapse of ideology in a society traditionally defined by political polarity and theoretical certitude."

Depending on one's sense of humor, Breillat's sixth and latest film, Romance, is partly a somber treatise on (and demonstration of) a woman's desire and partly a sly comedy concerning the war between the sexes. Breillat discusses several topics in the interview, including changes that have occurred during the last ten years that have led to the arrival of female directors who also have a real feminine vision, changes that have taken place in the representation of women in film, the difference in men and women's responses to Romance, the sources of the emotional issues that she addresses in this and her other films, and the difference between the film she intended to make and the completed film."

"With her new movie, Anatomy of Hell, sex-shock filmmaker Catherine Breillat does not so much straddle the fine line between art and pornography as balance, dripping blood, on the razor's edge between trenchant and pretentious. The film, which opens on September 18, is laughable in a theater, although it may work up a seedy Dada aura as a DVD loop positioned between Ingres's Grand Odalisque and Gustave Courbet's The Origin of the World. Beyond this, Breillat's intentions are hard to fathom." [Art Index]

"A ma soeur! (For My Sister provides new proof of director Catherine Breillat's unique talent. Less blatantly provocative than her 1999 Romance, the movie is closer to Breillat's 1987 36 fillette and, most of all, to her first film, Une vraie jeune fille. After studying the cliches of contemporary sexual economy in Romance from a subtly glacial remove, Breillat goes back to the form of adolescent chronicle with this clinical report of the deflowering of a pretty teenage girl in the presence of her obese younger sister. Rather than sustain one realistic note, Breillat works with a blend of diverse, paradoxical approaches and undertones that both contradict and complement each other, giving the film an intricate form that is skillfully hidden beneath the seeming simplicity of its surface."

The latter film won the Golden Bear, possibly for its sexual candor, as well as a Best Actress prize for Kerry Fox. Breillat exposed far more than her protagonists' bodies in A Ma Soeur!, combining visual directness with a new warmth and profundity. The writer discusses a selection of the other films shown at the festival." [Art Index]

"A review of `A ma soeur, a film by Catherine Breillat. The film concerns two sisters: one, beautiful, wants both sex and love; the other, physically unattractive, is bulimic. The downfall of the film is the rape and its denial by the unattractive sister. The moral is clear and suitably twisted: When you are considered undesirable, rape is the next best thing. More than the battle of the sexes, the film centers on the settling of accounts between women." [Art Index]

"The films of French auteur director Catherine Breillat set out to provoke. Her new film, concerning two teenage sisters, allows her to engage with current feminist concerns about body image. However, it is no cute teen movie where girls worry about weight, dates, and make-up; Breillat cuts straight to the core issue: sexuality. Her portrayal of adolescent sex is excruciating and is accompanied by a merciless critique of male romantic discourse and machismo. She shows the effects of dishonest male seduction techniques from the perspective of a woman and highlights the double standards in operation, but her film is not a feminist tract. Despite some ideological contradictions, her movie is a powerfully acid bit of film-making." [Art Index]

"The writer discusses five sexually explicit European films that were recently released: Patrice Chereau's Intimacy, Catherine Breillat's Romance and Fat Girl, Lars Von Trier's The Idiots, and Baise-Moi, by Virginie Despentes and Coralie Trinh Thi. Sexually explicit sex acts are once more making an appearance in aesthetically ambitious films that portray complex and explicit sexual relations that are neither the whole point of the film (as in pornography) nor tacked on gratuitously (as in soft-core "exploitation"). Defying the soft-focus erotic prettiness that has marked the "sex scene" of mainstream Hollywood, this new European cinema is breaking down the firewall between philosophy, politics, and emotion on the one hand, and "pure" pornography on the other, in the process forging new ways of presenting and visually experiencing sex acts."

Breillat's dark film confronts the uncertainty of virginity in the context of sibling rivalry. While her subject matter is lurid, she avoids exploitation, mainly thanks to the courageous performances of her two leads. Her feminist fable delivers neither clean morals nor deserved happy endings.

"In an editorial, the writer discusses four recent French films that explore sex: Patrice Chereau's Intimacy, Catherine Breillat's Romance and Fat Girl, and Virginie Despentes and Coralie Trinh Thi's Baise-Moi. These films have not only aroused Renéwed controversy over the censorship of sexuality in the cinema, but also given rise to a newer, more nuanced debate about the crossover of explicit sex from porn theaters to art-house cinemas. Because of their focus on female sexual desire, these sexually explicit films are more poignant than titillating, setting out to move viewers emotionally rather than to arouse them physically."

An interview with Catherine Breillat, whose new film Romance confronts sexual taboos and desire by following the sexual encounters of a frustrated schoolteacher. Among the subjects she discusses are the sexual explicitness of the film, whether she has had any censorship problems where the film has already played, how she defines the relationship between her film and pornography, and her exploration of the relationship between a woman's sexual anatomy and her childbearing anatomy."

"review of Romance, a film by Catherine Breillat. The story centers on a woman called Marie and the three men in her life, Paul, Paolo, and Robert. Paul, who is the most enigmatic of the characters, is Marie's husband, who cannot make love to her despite the fact that they love each other. Paolo is Marie's lover, but is only a passing fling; Robert is her master of sexual ceremonies. This film, which is Breillat's most powerful and accomplished to date, is simultaneously a philosophical thesis, a diary, a cry of anger and love, a monotonous chant, and an exploration of boundaries. Both red hot and glacial, it is a film of rare audacity." [Art Index]

"Part of a special section on sex in cinema. These days, sex is increasingly prevalent in French cinema. In unison with the frightening social "debate" currently surrounding pornography and prostitution, French filmmakers are turning sex into a powerful formal and political tool. They are entering into a crucial relationship with pornography and pulling the strings on a new aesthetic struggle. The phenomenon left in the wake of Catherine Breillat's film, Romance, that is, a certain "authorization" of pornography, has been replaced today by a tendency to confront sex head-on, as though, like a question in an end-of-year exam, a modern filmmaker can be identified by the manner in which he films sex."

"For Sade, the metaphysical problem was to break with the cycle of eternal recurrence. While he correctly saw this as a matter of sexuality, Sade failed to provide a solution, however; his works always remaining tied to the expression of the self. Romance can be seen as an alternate attempt to account for the sexual abandonment of the self, which, in true surrealist fashion, it considers in terms of the dichotomy of face and body. It tells the story of a young woman's tutoring and general educational experience in the abandonment of utilitarian thinking and values, a process that finally leads her to a form of sovereignty." [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]

Macnab, Geoffrey. "Sadean woman." Sight and Sound. Dec 2004. Vol. 14, Iss. 12; pg. 20, 1 pgs
Catherine Breillat's blatant view of sex in "Romance" shocked many, but in her new film "Anatomy of Hell" her exposure of the female body to brute male scrutiny goes much further. Here, Macnab describes the film, which combines graphic imagery of sex with poetic vocieovers and philosophical asides about the nature of desire.

"Romance." Sight & Sound v. ns9 no. 11 (November 1999) p. 51-2
"Addressing its audiences not as a sex film but as an intellectual artifact about sex, Breillat's film radically undermines its own potential for titillation and voyeurism in a number of ways. Both fascinating and disturbing, the film is also disappointing; its erotic tropes are a little too close to old-fashioned, oppressive male fantasies, and the heroine's sexual autonomy is only gained at the expense of any other sense of worth."

"Part of a special issue on philosophy and film. The writer places the work of novelist and filmmaker Catherine Breillat in the context of feminist philosophy. Discussing Breillat's films in relation to the writings of Luce Irigaray, she explores the vital influence of Freudian and Lacanian psychoanalysis on them, and their critical extension by Judith Butler. She argues that Breillat's films playfully dismantle the "tragic" conception of sexual identity evident in the writings of Lacan and that they offer instead of this a vision of sexuality as a fundamentally "constructed", contingent, and culturally variable-phenomenon."

"Catherine Breillat's Sex Is Comedy is a fiction film about her own filmmaking that gives the director's struggle with the actors a twist by focusing on sex scenes. Breillat's reputation as a controversial auteur is confirmed by this film. Despite her oft-stated reluctance to assume the identity of a 'woman filmmaker', with Sex Is Comedy Breillat has made a film that clearly displays the difficulties involved in female authorship. However, perhaps her ultimate challenge to the genre is to its narcissistic dimension. The power games that uphold the role of the male director are based in cultural expectations and charm to evoke images of difficult but endearing male vulnerability. By showing explicitly the manipulative role of the director, by making the male sexual organ grotesque, and by minimizing the film's female director's seductive dimension, Breillat has rendered her on-screen auteur both more exasperating and more truthful."

"A review of la Ceremonie, a film directed by Claude Chabrol. Chabrol's film is based on Ruth Rendell's novel A Judgement in Stone and deals with the class struggle involved when a new maid arrives to work at the country house of an extremely rich family. The battleground for this struggle is relatively ambiguous as none of the characters are particularly likeable, and the two characters whose enmity results in the final tragedy are the least sympathetic of all. The film is somber, and Chabrol seems to have made his most conscious statement on the subject of class warfare." [Art Index]

The writer discusses the films of French director Henri-Georges Clouzot, who died in 1977. One of film's true misanthropes, Clouzot directed two of the most successful and fondly remembered French films of the 1950s, but the majority of his work was unfashionable even before his death. Among the films discussed are Les Diaboliques (1955), The Wages of Fear (La Salaire de la peur, 1953), and The Murderer Lives at No. 21 (L'Assassin habite . . . au 21, 1942).

"'Le Corbeau,' by Henri-Georges Clouzot, a painful art motion picture produced in 1943 during the Occupation of France, is symbolic of the French cinema of the period. It is not easy to make a judgement on the politics of the film, because there have been so many different political positions ascribed to 'Le Corbeau.'" [Expanded Academic Index]

Belgian filmmakers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne have been described as grim realists, but their realism is painstakingly and concretely defined in terms of location. In an interview, the directors discuss such topics as the difference in filming style of Le Fils and L'Enfant, the endings of their films, the importance of locations, and how they felt after winning their first Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival for Rossetta.

"In Lorna's Silence, Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne have created a protagonist for whom the most mundane action is a matter of life and death. Revisiting the theme of immigration, the topic of their prophetic breakthrough film La Promesse and of 21st-century cinema, they again demonstrate how to recount an outsider's story without sentimentality or excessive melodrama. The film is more obviously a work of neo-neorealism than of neo-noir, but the real originality of the Dardennes' work may be the film's break from neorealism. Against the tide of neorealism, the Dardennes insist that action is character and demonstrate the possibility of human agency at a time when faith has been lost in that possibility." [EBSCO]

"Memory process and feminine desire in Claire Denis's 'Chocolat' and Brigitte Rouan's 'Outremer.'" Journal of Third World Studies Fall 1996 v13 n2 p173(15)
"The 1980s witnessed a shift in the French cinema's treatment of the colonial epoch. In 'Chocolat' and 'Outremer,' female filmmakers Claire Denis and Brigitte Rouan approached colonialism by fusing a personal and intimate account of their lives in the colonies with the issues prevailing at the end of the colonial period. This is a departure from the approach of male directors, who exposed socio-political conflicts either directly or indirectly. Through their memory process, the two women filmmakers depict the lives of women colonists as apart from the colonial system. The films also express feminine desire by resisting the male order, seeking happiness and solace in bond with the female body and showing desire for the African male body." [Expanded Academic Index]

An analysis of the sexually explicit French films of Catherine Breillat, Patrice Chereau, Gaspar Noé, Virginie Despentes and Coralie Trinh Thi is presented. To a certain extent, the pornographic elements of the films are denaturalized as in 'Romance' (1999), or mixed in a collage that dislocates the sexual activity as in 'Irreversible' (2002) and 'Baisse-moi' (2001).

Georges Franju's 'Eyes Without A Face' is a film that uses classic cinematic horror techniques to portray a variant of the Beauty and the Beast theme. The film is about a plastic surgeon's search for a face to repair his gruesomely disfigured daughter's face.

Sinclair, Iain.
"Homeopathic horror." (re-release of Georges Franju's movie 'Eyes Without a Face') Sight and Sound v5, n4 (April, 1995):24 (4 pages).
Georges Franju's horror movie 'Eyes Without a Face' made in the 1950s is to be re-released. The setting of the film shifts between Paris and its outskirts. Effective soundtrack and the cinematography with classic black and white images contribute to the film's nightmarish atmosphere.

Chaiken touches on how much has been made of the film's relationship, or anti-relationship with Bernardo Bertolucci's "The Dreamers" and discusses how the movie's protagonists are "underserved by their ambitions and overnourished in their pleasures." He also comments on the lack of U.S. distribution for any of Garrel's films." [IIPA]

"The author examines the films of Philippe hitGarrel and Jean-Luc Godard in terms of religion. hitGarrel came from a Catholic family, while Godard was raised in a Protestant environment. The concept of director as auteur is explored in light of filmmaking being conceived as a "new secular religion." While the idea of a film director as a kind of deity or omniscient god is not unique to French cinema, the special place accorded to cinema in French culture lends the analogy special significance there, and Godard has gravitated toward that role throughout his career. hitGarrel was known for invoking Jesus Christ to combat the repressive forces of a police state, as the 1960s brought a renewed interest in Christ in Western culture. hitGarrel's representation of himself as a kind of deity is noted as well as Godard's, as their work is examined in depth."

"This article examines the educational value of using film to teach secondary students about historical events like the Holocaust. Corbitt contends that films are very powerful teaching tools if educators select them properly and teach their students to view them with media savvy. He demonstrates how this educational task can be accomplished by outlining the instructional steps involved in teaching a specific classroom unit about the film, Au Revoir Les Enfants. This educational curriculum features many thought-provoking discussion topics that can be used to stimulate greater thought and reflection about the historical themes related to the Holocaust."

"Plusieurs critiques ont remarque que le chef-d'oeuvre de Jacques Rivette, Celine et Julie vont en bateau (1974), reprend certaines techniques de montage du film revolutionnaire d'Alain Resnais L'Annee derniere a Marienbad (1961).

The article examines the interrelation of the themes of theatricality and conspiracy in the films of French director Jacques Rivette. The author discusses the manner in which both theatricality and conspiracy generate an exploration of the notion of play and its dramatic uses in the cinema. The author addresses the structural and spatial implications of Rivette's interest in conspiracy. The influence of French filmmaker Louis Feuillade on Rivette's work is talked about. Films examined in the article include "Paris nous appartient," "La Religieuse," and "L'amour fou."

"Filmmaker Jacques Rivette is a member of the loosely defined group of French directors collectively known as The New Wave. Although not as well known as Chabrol, Truffaut and Godard, Rivette has won a following among some devotees of French cinema. One of his best films is the masterful 'Celine and Julie Go Boating,' which runs for a relatively short 193 minutes and features fascinating performances from four actresses: Dominique Labourier, Marie-France Pisier, Juliet Berto and Bulle Ogier. The movie portrays two sharply contrasting worlds, with characters shuttling between the two." [Expanded Academic Index]

"The article discusses the conversational films of Eric Rohmer. The majority of Rohmer's films are ones in which the discussion of love is a major component involving different groups of people and different aspects of love. Rohmer's earliest films, including "My Night at Maud's" and "Love in the Afternoon," focus on the aspects of religion and conjugal fidelity while his later films, including "The Romance of Astrea and Céladon" and "Pauline at the Beach," focus on courtly love and idealization."

"Jacques Tati (1907-82), actor and creator of French comic films, made five feature films between 1947 and 1971. His first three films generated significant commercial success and all five were and continue to be well received critically. The plot of each Tati film is different, but the overall theme pertains to a response to the new and its assimilation into contemporary French society. The encroachment of technology, urban design, and mass production on the everyday life of the individual remains consistent throughout all of his productions. Tati is one of a few contemporary filmmakers to realize the impact of the new technologies and their potential for alienation in human relationships." [Historical Abstracts]

"An interview with director Bertrand Tavernier. Tavernier's most recent film, Laissez-passer (English title: Safe Conduct), is an epic saga of filmmaking in wartime France that tackles the still-controversial period of the German Occupation with great narrative style. The majority of films that ponder the agony and ecstasy of making films are either nostalgic evocations of the past, sardonic commentaries on crass commercialism, or faux-autobiographical explorations of the fusion of life and art. Tavernier's film touches upon all of these themes but also takes the rare step of making links between these relatively parochial, solipsistic concerns and larger questions of historical memory and personal responsibility. In an interview, Tavernier discusses his film's historical context, the controversy it engendered in France, his passion for both French and Hollywood films, and his enduring commitment to social justice."

"An interview with filmmaker Bertrand Tavernier. Tavernier's latest film, Capitaine Conan, an adaptation of Roger Vercel's eponymous 1934 novel, challenges the conventional historical record that World War I ended on November 11, 1918, by examining the intense fighting on the Eastern Front that continued into 1919. Following the battlefield exploits of a charismatic young French officer who excels at leading his handpicked soldiers in hit-and-run commando raids, the film examines the moral ambiguities of 20th-century warfare. Tavernier discusses several topics in the interview, including why he was interested in adapting the novel for the screen, the new historical insights the film offers the French, how he visualized the landscape for the battle scenes in the film, the effect of war and violence on the characters, the significance of dinner scenes in the film, and the film as an effective indictment of military justice in general."

Varda discusses such topics as how she became interested in filming the gleaners or salvagers for her 2000 film The Gleaners and I, how she established a rapport with both the rural and urban gleaners, how she met and filmed the gleaner François, whether using a digital camera gave her more freedom, the idea of filmmaking as artistic gleaning, the experience of choosing the film clips for her film One Hundred and One Nights, the themes of memory and the documentation of aging in her recent work, whether her combination of the documentary aesthetic within a narrative film has inspired certain contemporary French filmmakers, and her current projects."

"The article explores the trends in the French cinema in 2007. The author begins with the emergence of a trend of engaged films called new realism. According to the author, the term new realism refers less to a shared political agenda than to a diverse group of filmmakers who have effected a re-engagement with socio-political issue. He highlights the representation of the gaze that involves the spectators in the image, disrupting their ability to remain all-perceiving and unperceived in the cinema. In addition, the author comments that filmmakers Laurent Cantet and Agnès Varda use the cinema to explore social suffering, but they do so from very different perspectives." [Ebsco]

"A review of Cléo from 5 to 7 (1962) and Vagabond (1985), two films by Agnès Varda that have been released on laserdisc. Of all the revolutionary French cineastes who began making narrative films in the late 1950s, Varda has, throughout her career, remained the most solidly based in the aesthetics and politics of documentary. Cléo from 5 to 7, which takes place in Paris within a roughly two-hour time span, is based on the very dramatic plot device of a woman awaiting the results of a biopsy for stomach cancer, with such elements as hand-held tracking shots adding to the feeling of documentary. In Vagabond, the story of a young woman who has dropped out of society to wander around the French countryside, Varda brilliantly reverses ingrained habits of viewing images and experiencing narrative, revealing her continued preoccupation with the dialectics of the narrative film versus the documentary."

"France's cine-club activities from the mid-1940s to the late 1960s undoubtedly shaped the tastes and viewing strategies of a generation. Regular gatherings that brought people together to watch and discuss film, cine-club elevated the film culture of the public and contributed to the renewal of French cinema, observed Alain Resnais. As early as the 1920s, the cine-club had played a key role in French film culture, promoting film to the status of art, fostering an awareness of film history, and promoting noncommercial films. In the postwar era, the cine-club recast itself, showing a wider range of films and drawing members from a wider socioeconomic spectrum. The writer considers the role of the cine-club in film culture, with reference to Cléo from 5 to 7, Agnès Varda's chronicle of the movements through Paris of a beautiful, self-absorbed singer anxiously awaiting the results of a medical test, which was assessed by over 2,000 cine-club viewers who received questionnaires."

"Paris Nous Appartient: Flanerie in Paris and Film." Film Quarterly. Spring 2008. Vol. 61, Iss. 3; pg. 46, 7 pgs
"It is interesting to see how different movements and genres within French cinema represented Paris, in the process somehow always offering a different city: the silent Paris of Feuillade and his vampires, the Paris of the réalisme poétique of Carné and Clair in the 1930s, the belle époque Paris of Renoir and Jacqueline Audry in the post-war period, the New Wave Paris of Truffaut, Godard, and Agnès Varda, the postmodern Paris of Jean-Jacques Beineix, Leos Carax, or the early Luc Besson, not to mention the peripheral banlieue settings of Mathieu Kassovitz's Hate (La Haine [1995]) and most beur films. A recent survey by the Paris mayor's office recorded that over 700 films are shot in the city every year, bringing economic benefit as well as new perspectives. Belonging to a dominated group can contribute to explaining the concern some female directors express regarding discrimination and violence, be it social, sexual or ethnic."

The article discusses the motion picture "The Gleaners and I." Filmmaker Agnès Varda made the motion picture, which focuses on various people who salvage items, using digital video. The author suggests the immateriality of digital video contrasts with the Cartesian subject matter of the motion picture. She comments that Varda uses handheld camerawork and avoids computer manipulation to create a realist aesthetic. She comments on how digital video serves Varda's nonlinear style of editing. Psychoanalyst Jean Laplanche appears in the motion picture and its sequel "Two Years Later."

"The film "The Gleaners and I," launched its national release at New York's Film Forum. Nothing could be further from the bombast of Oscar contenders. Its director, Agnés Varda, is a veteran whose first film predates the French New Wave, a movement she soon joined, today, she's its most tenacious and intrepid survivor. The Film Forum has used the occasion to mount a retrospective of Varda's films, made over fifty years with considerable charm, occasional sentimentality and, in hindsight, historical acuity. For a hint of Varda's current interest, there's her 1985 hit "Vagabond," with actress Sandrine Bonnaire as a homeless drifter whose brushes with society disturb the surface but cannot save her life."

"French Social Cinema and the Popular Front." Journal of Contemporary History 1977 12(3):
UC users only
"Jean Vigo, a 25-year old filmmaker, made an appeal in 1930 for "social cinema," a kind of documentary then being avoided. His own attempts had been hampered by film censorship and the domination of big producers like Pathé and Gaumont. What his untimely death in 1934 prevented his achieving, the Depression accomplished. The Socialist and Communist parties and the trade unions increased their cinematic efforts. The growth of social film thus paralleled that of the Popular Front." [Historical Abstracts]

Temple, Michael
"Dreaming of Vigo." (untimely death of French filmmaker Jean Vigo) Sight and Sound Nov 1998 v8 i11 p14(2)
" French filmmaker Jean Vigo died young and with no significant achievements. The report of his death by journalist Frederic Pottecher on Oct 7, 1934 gained very little attention. Despite some good reviews of Vigo's works, he failed to make any substantial impact in filmmaking. However, it is remarkable that Vigo has become a myth. Perhaps this is because Vigo has become a sacrificial symbol, a filmmaker who could have made significant contributions but became a victim of an early death. "[Expanded Academic Index]

"This essay provides a rhetorical analysis of the French film, Indochine. The authors argue that this cinematic representation constitutes a good example of "melancholic nostalgia," where producers and viewers used archetypal characters and romantic entanglements as a way of explaining the strengths and weaknesses of various French and "Indo-Chinese" colonial relationships. The essay argues that the producers of the film tapped into collective longings for symbolic pasts that may never have existed. The authors conclude that Indochine should be considered as a negotiated compromise that tells us more about the needs of modern Western, French and Vietnamese audiences than it does about any "real" colonial past."

The story of 'Madame Butterfly,' a work by Giacomo Puccini is restructured in 'Miss Saigon' against a background of Vietnam in 1975. Feminist attributes of another film 'Indochine,' which won an Academy Award in 1992 are discussed.

"The writer explores Asian masculinities in the 1992 movies Indochine, by Regis Wargnier, and The Lover, by Jean-Jacques Annaud. In Indochine, the camera freezes the frame in a moment of colonial nostalgia and embodies the nouveau-colon in the hybrid Etienne, the son of a young Annamite princess, who chooses France as his mother. In The Lover, the Chinese man represents the stronger colonizing force whose influence in Vietnam remains after its official departure, but whose challenge the narrator entertains and subsequently contains in her memories, materialized through spatial encapsulation and uttered denials of amorous affection. In both movies, the containment of the Asian male is tenuous at best, founded on subjective reimaginings of the French colonial era. The need to control in the films seems particularly linked to the threat that Asian men, by virtue of their constituting the bulk of anti-French military forces, pose to the notion of a stable, French-constructed empire."
