Marcel Carné

Jonathan Driskell

Published by Manchester University Press

French Film Directors MUP

  • The first book for over twenty years to look at the films of Marcel Carné
  • Carné directed Les Enfants du paradis in 1945, and it is still considered to be one of the finest films to be made in Europe or elsewhere
  • Driskell offers a refreshing reappraisal of this great director, looking at his conflicts with the New Wave directors, at his working relationship with Jacques Prévert and the tension between the populist and artistic traditions of French cinema
  • A volume on Carné was on the initial wish-list for the French Film Directors, but the fifteen year wait has been worth it
