In this course, we will look at recent French movies that have received acclaim in Hollywood, such as Amelie Poulain, La Vie en rose, the Artist, etc. While French cinema has long been seen as an alternative to the world domination of Hollywood cinema, we will consider what makes French cinema particularly “French” and attracting specific audiences abroad. We will also look at how Hollywood is gradually transforming the French film industry. Films, discussions, and presentations are entirely in French. Prerequisite: French Intermediate 2 or the equivalent.
