[nice clean, as-new book, with no discernible wear]. (Cambridge Studies in Film) Series Trade PB (B&W photographs) "A collection of essays by the filmmaker and critic Eric Rohmer that were originally written for the French film review Cahiers du Cinema between 1948 and 1979. Rohmer, one of the founding members of the French 'New Wave' cinema, was one of the journal's original critics and also served as its editor. Divided into four sections, the essays deal with fundamental and theoretical questions of filmmaking from a single theoretical viewpoint. Rohmer writes in depth on the issues most fundamental to film: what the camera best portrays, the role of sound and color, the use of drama and comedy, the role of speech, and the problem of literary adaptation. He also includes a personal defense of his films. The final section is devoted entirely to the filmmaker Jean Renoir."
