Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0715628496, Paperback)

Providing a modern introduction to French cinema, this book describes the French passion for histories in images that gave birth to the 'Nouvelle Vague' and which is still felt today. The post-war period is the first time French directors think consciously of the idea of cinema in the first person, offering a personal vision and embodying a personal style. Yet this personal vision is also the filter through which films focus on public history, mass events and massive trauma.
