The power of Pialat's realism has often overshadowed his formal originality and this study gives equal attention to formal issues, including the crucial role of montage in the elaboration of his filmic narratives." "The author provides a brief biographical sketch of the filmmaker, situating Pialat's work in relation to the New Wave and the popular Saturday night cinema of his childhood, as well as giving an overview of the major themes and formal preoccupations of his work. Subsequent chapters provide readings of each of his full-length films. The resulting volume is essential to any collection on French film and makes a valuable contribution to the broader field of French studies."--Jacket.

This study compares text/image interaction as manifested in emblem books (and related forms) and the modern bande dessinée, or French-language comic strip. It moves beyond the issue of defining the emblematic genre to examine the ways in which emblems, and their modern counterparts, interact with the surrounding culture, and what they disclose about that culture. Grove's analysis and historical contextualization provide insight into our own popular culture forms, not only the comic strip but also other hybrid media such as advertising and the Internet.
