"I love the French. They're the biggest film buffs and protectors of cinema in the world. They really look out for the filmmaker and the rights of the filmmaker, and they believe in final cut." - David Lynch
- Le Cinema Francais: An Illustrated Guide to the Best of French Films.
An irresistible illustrated guide to the best of French film, starting with the 1950s (And God Created Woman), through the spectrum of French New Wave (Jules and Jim), and on to modern-day confections like Amélie.
Starring the likes of Brigitte Bardot, Catherine Deneuve, and Jeanne Moreau, and directed by iconoclasts such as Francois Truffaut, Eric Rohmer, and Jean-Luc Godard, French movies are as touching, beautiful, and romantic as they come in all of film. Le Cinéma Français captures their spirit in whimsical detail.
- Each film is covered with a plot summary; back stories; and illustrations by Anne Keenan Higgins of highlight scenes, costumes, props, and characters that are as enchanting as the films themselves.
