Cinema has been long associated with France, dating back to 1895, when Louis and Auguste Lumi_re screened their works, the first public viewing of films anywhere. Early silent pioneers Georges MZli_s, Alice Guy BlachZ and others followed in the footsteps of the Lumi_re brothers and the tradition of important filmmaking continued throughout the 20th century and beyond. In Encyclopedia of French Film Directors, Philippe Rège identifies every French director who has made at least one feature film since 1895. From undisputed masters to obscure one-timers, nearly 3,000 directors are cited here, including at least 200 filmmakers not mentioned in similar books published in France. Each director's entry contains a brief biographical summary, including dates and places of birth and death; information on the individual's education and professional training; and other pertinent details, such as real names (when the filmmaker uses a pseudonym). The entries also provide complete filmographies, including credits for feature films, shorts, documentaries, and television work. Some of the most important names in the history of film can be found in this encyclopedia, from masters of the Golden Age_Jean Renoir and RenZ Clair_to French New Wave artists such as Fran_ois Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard.

Après La Prophétie Charlemagne, la nouvelle aventure de Cotton Malone, à Paris sur les traces du trésor perdu de Napoléon. Après La Prophétie Charlemagne, la nouvelle aventure de Cotton Malone, à Paris, sur les traces du trésor perdu de Napoléon. Lors de sa mort, en 1821, à Sainte-Hélène, Napoléon emporta bien des secrets dans sa tombe. Durant ses années de conquête, il avait en effet eu accès à de nombreuses richesses mais aussi à des archives occultes, en particulier celles du Vatican et des Chevaliers de Malte. C'est à la quête d'un des secrets de l'Empereur, peut-être le mieux gardé, que se lance cette fois Cotton Malone. Pour quelles raisons Napoléon a-t-il, peu de temps avant sa mort, demandé à son fidèle serviteur Saint-Denis de remettre à son fils un ouvrage consacré aux royaumes mérovingiens ? Quels sont les secrets que renferme ce livre ? Et qu'en est-il de ces mystérieux documents que se sont disputés dans l'ombre l'Empereur et son ancien complice, devenu son ennemi juré, le comte Pozzo di Borgo ? Du Paris historique à la tour Santa Maria au Cap Corse en passant par un mystérieux château de la Loire, Steve Berry nous propose encore un fabuleux voyage en compagnie de Cotton Malone, plein de mystères, d'énigmes et de retournements.

Georges de La Tour ranks with Vermeer and the Le Nain brothers among those seventeenth-century painters whose unmistakable talent is matched only by the aura of mystery that surrounds the artists themselves. Jacques Thuillier's groundbreaking monograph, first published in 1993, places La Tour's oeuvre in the specific context of the Lorraine region where he lived and worked, but also repositions La Tour alongside the greatest European masters. Available for the first time in paperback, this beautifully designed volume, complete with an illustrated catalogue raisonné and translations of key documentary sources, remains the essential reference work on this important and fascinating artist.
