Summary
"This book is an essential introduction to popular French film from the 1970s onwards. It charts recent developments in all genres of French cinema with analyses of over 120 movies, from La Cage aux folles to Cache." "Reflecting the diversity of French film production since the New Wave, this clear and perceptive study includes chapters on fantasy cinema, the heritage film, the thriller and the war movie, along others. Each chapter introduces the public reception and critical debates surrounding a given genre, interwoven with detailed accounts of relevant films." "Confirmed as a major contribution to both Film Studies and French Studies, this new edition has been brought right up to date and is a fascinating volume for students and fans of French film alike."--BOOK JACKET
