Cet ouvrage apporte aux lecteurs les outils leur permettant de mener à bien l’exercice d’analyse de séquences en anglais. Il offre à la fois une méthodologie, le vocabulaire approprié, un bagage culturel ainsi qu’une série d’exemples concrets en anglais. Il se propose d’être un outil sur lequel peut s’appuyer l’enseignant, mais il se veut également assez complet pour pouvoir être utilisé en autonomie. Il s’appuie sur les recherches récentes en études cinématographiques, qu’elles soient en langue anglaise ou française, et permet ainsi de faire le pont entre les différentes approches, sans pour autant multiplier les références aux débats trop précis qui obscurciraient le propos. Néanmoins, des références parcourent le texte afin de donner au lecteur la possibilité d’approfondir son travail sur tel ou tel aspect du cinéma. Les exemples d analyses portent sur des extraits de films classiques et offrent un panorama le plus juste possible du cinéma anglo-saxon. L’ensemble des exemples étant divisé en plusieurs parties historiques, elles-mêmes introduites par une présentation de la période couverte, l’ouvrage donne au lecteur un bagage culturel suffisant pour réussir cette épreuve. Il permet aux étudiants préparant le CAPES ou l’Agrégation d’anglais de se mettre à niveau pour l’analyse de films dans le cadre des concours. Il offre aux enseignants et aux candidats des pistes pédagogiques et des activités de classe pour exploiter les extraits de films.

Through an analysis of films as diverse as Jean de Florette, Ma Vie en rose, and Nikita, this collection of new essays is a comprehensive introduction to the concerns and styles that characterize contemporary popular French film. Set within an economic, political, and social context, France on Film reconsiders the direction French cinema is taking today, bringing into focus critical questions concerning wide-ranging notions of French culture, identity, and nationhood. Examining questions of popular cinema as opposed to art cinema, this book also seeks to (re)present films that have been widely popular in France and internationally and to thus challenge the traditional art-house view of contemporary French cinema. It also includes a comprehensive filmography and statistics detailing the current state of the French film industry.

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.

This bi-lingual collection illustrates the concept of ¿Warrior of the Imaginary,¿ as defined by Patrick Chamoiseau, in a multi-faceted corpus of texts by and on Caribbean writers. For obvious reasons, many of the contributions in French engage critically with this notion and how it surfaces in the Martinican writer's fiction.

This is the first in-depth study of the twelve Modiano texts specifically concerned with life-writing in autobiographical and biographical-cum-historiographical projects. The texts covered range fromLa Place de l'étoile (1968) through to La Petite Bijou (2001). Close textual analysis is combined with a theoretical approach based on current thinking in autobiography, biography, and reader-response. Modiano's use of autofiction and biofiction is analysed in the light of his continuing obsession with both personal trauma and History, as well as his problematic relationship with his paternally-inherited Jewish links. His view of identity (of self and other) is thus discussed in relation to a particular literary and socio-historical context– French, postmodern, post-World War II, and post-Holocaust.

In Past Forward: French Cinema and the Post-Colonial Heritage, author Dayna Oscherwitz focuses on the world of French films with a new lens. Drawing upon a wealth of research and the examination of popular French movies, Oscherwitz offers fresh perspectives not only on the unique importance of motion pictures and their indelible influence on French character, but on current debates regarding individual and collective memory. Past Forward traces the development and ascension of the French heritage film—those historical and costume dramas focusing on prestigious French subjects, events, and settings. These motion pictures, preeminent during a period of globalization and fear over the affects of immigration in 1980s France, quickly came to embody a specific version of French national and collective identity: one that idealized the past, condemned the present, and created an institutional form of memory. Oscherwitz presents the intriguing notion that French heritage films are not exclusively expressions of nationalism and nostalgia as has commonly been asserted. On the contrary, although these movies were born out of a perceived loss of French culture, their ambivalence toward traditional hallmarks of nationalism opens them up to new interpretation. Also in contrast to typical conceptions, the author suggests that these heritage films are far from cinematic bastions of multicultural backlash; instead, she argues, popular culture has in its own fashion reinserted the history of colonialism and immigration into the national past, thus reimagining heritage itself. Against this backdrop, Oscherwitz goes on to investigate the multicultural worlds of beur and banlieue movies—cinema seemingly in direct contrast with the heritage film—offering the theory that these films serve as a “countermemory” to an institutionalized one and provide alternative models of collective memory and identity. Through careful analysis of several examples, Oscherwitz demonstrates how these two seemingly different realms—heritage and multicultural cinema—are far from mutually exclusive in the construction of French identity. Throughout the volume, numerous well-known French movies are reexamined, inviting new interpretations of and challenging old views through investigations of familiar cinematic works. Past Forward is arevolutionary volume that boldly reimagines our ideas about French film and its role in communicating history and memory.
