The Cinema of France

leave a comment »

france-parisThe Cinema of France comprises the art of film and creative movies, making within the nation of France or by French filmmakers abroad. France was the birthplace of cinema and saw many of its initial significant contributions.[1] Several important cinematic movements have begun in France, including the Nouvelle Vague. It is noted for having a particularly strong film industry, due in part to a certain level of protection afforded it by the French government.[1] For this reason also, it is able to stand up quite well to competition from America, when compared with the cinema industries of other countries. Characteristics include slower plotlines, strong character development and a deviance from happy or conclusive endings.

Apart from its strong indigenous film tradition, France has also been a gathering spot for artists from across Europe and the world. For this reason French cinema is sometimes intertwined with the cinema of foreign nations. Directors from nations such as Poland (Roman Polanski, Krzysztof Kieslowski, Andrzej Żuławski), Argentina (Gaspar Noe, Edgardo Cozarinsky), and Russia/the Soviet Union (Alexandre Alexeieff, Anatole Litvak, Gela Babluani, Otar Iosseliani) are equally prominent in the ranks of French cinema as the native Frenchmen. Also, French directors such as Luc Besson in the United States, have been important in the development of Cinema in other countries. Representative of it’s cinematic prominence, France (with over 150 entries) is the second best represented country, behind the United States, in the well-known book, 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die.
