Editorial Reviews


"Ginette Vincendeau has assembled an elite corps of film scholars to address a marvellous array of modern and classic French films with the close-up scrutiny they deserve."-- Dudley Andrew

"Well-conceived and clearly argued, O’Shaughnessy’s excellent guide to La Grande Illusion proposes 'to provide a rounded exploration' of the film, 'covering its complex sources, different creative inputs into it and its complex production and reception histories.'…O’Shaughnessy recognizes the complex interactions of social and historical factors…the variety of perspectives he successfully keeps in play is suggested by the three compelling reasons he adduces for making La Grande Illusion compulsory viewing…O’Shaughnessy’s perspective has the considerable value of attempting to draw the film into a larger political conversation and providing us with past references against which to measure present experience." -- Marja Warehime, H-France Review
