Editorial Reviews


'Michel Marie, legendary cinephile and scholar of French cinema, has fashioned a three-dimensional map of the New Wave ‘School&apos;, providing its genesis and morphology as well. The table of contents alone is full of important ideas and promising directions. Yet within this brilliant organization operates the eye and the sensibility of someone who is intimate with these intimate films. What a vast film-culture subtends this tidy study.' Dudley Andrew, Yale University <!--end-->

'In Richard Neupert's extremely readable translation, Michel Marie's French New Wave is just what the directors ordered – a rat-a-tat-tat new look at the Nouvelle Vague that is fresh and irreverent. Michel Poiccard/Jean-Paul Belmondo would have loved it.' Rick Altman, University of Iowa

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Nathaniel Bennington on November 11, 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm very happy with my purchase and the book is in excellent condition. The text is comprehensive, covering every aspect of New Wave film making history that includes not only all of the films from the period and their directors, but also makes some informative comparisons of the movement to French cinema in general during this same era (1958-63). Beyond the critical concepts there is detailed discussion about the commercial aspects which are also important (the chapter "A Mode Of Production & Distribution") covers this satisfactorily. The book serves my purposes well in relation to an ASU course that I'm enrolled in.
