An in-depth look at some of the best and most influential French films of all time, The Cinema of France contains 24 essays, each on an individual film.

France

A guidebook can show you where to go, a language guide what to say when you get there. But only "Speak the Culture: France" will lead you to a nation's soul. This easy to use cultural companion considers how it feels to have grown up with Flaubert, Cezanne and Bardot; it captures the flavours of French regional cuisine, paints the colour of festival life and delves deep into the Gallic psyche. Through exploring the people, movements and the lifestyles that have shaped the French experience, you will come to an intimate understanding of France and the French. This is not a travel guide or a manual on living in France. It's a superbly designed, informed and engaging insight into French life and culture and who the French really are
