Space and Being in Contemporary French Cinema

James S. Williams

Published by Manchester University Press

  • This is the first major, fully up-to-date study in English of the cinema of Bruno Dumont, Robert Guédiguian, Laurent Cantet, Abdellatif Kechiche and Claire Denis
  • The book is accessible and wide-ranging, bringing together for the first time some of the most important and exciting filmmakers working in France today
  • No other monograph exists covering the particular set of theoretical questions about space in contemporary French cinema
  • It will thus become essential reading for courses on space and place
  • Because of its thematic and theoretical range, this volume of essays will find its way onto the readings lists of core film and cultural courses
  • Almost all the works under discussion are taught at undergraduate and graduate level and are commercially available with English subtitles on DVD
