Jean Douchet:
The French New Wave - used book

ID: 6380749

A coffee-table book on the Nouvelle Vague (or New Wave) filmmakers might be considered a contradiction in terms. Yet as big and well-designed as it is, with all those creamy photographs, it still manages to look like the smart, perverse product of that band of outsiders who in 1950s Paris decided to overturn the last generation. In Jean Doucet's story, Fran?ois Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard, Jacques Rivette, Claude Chabrol, and Eric Rohmer all shucked their day jobs in film criticism to begin making films with borrowed cameras and their raw nerve, hunting their cinematic forefathers--Jean Renoir, Marcel Carne, and Marcel Pagnol. Doucet's lively book is true to their vision too. With its jazz album fonts and tinted photographs of young men smoking, it gives no corner to dumbness, and much space to the coolness of being alive during that time. Through 350-plus pages, Doucet, a philosopher who knew the filmmakers, covers the early days of the Cinematheque Fran?ais, where all the filmmakers met and watched Chaplin, Griffith, and Murnau; the emergence of Cahiers du Cin?ma, where they published witty, polemical essays, as the center of their revolution; and the films themselves, beginning with Truffaut's 400 Blows in 1959 and Godard's Breathless in 1960. Doucet reproduces film reviews of the period and includes copies of old cine-club programs, newspaper stories, and a final chapter on "new waves" in Iran, Czechoslovakia, Brazil, and even the U.S. (see Jim J arts music and photography,education and reference,film and television,genre films,history and criticism,humanities,humor and entertainment,movies,performing arts,reference Movies, D.A.P./Distributed Art Publishers, Inc.

Unlike painting, the history of cinema has developed relatively few stylistic "schools". Perhaps the most famous exception to this is the French New Wave, a term that at once connotes to even the most casual moviegoer such masterpieces as Godard's Breathless and Truffaut's Jules and Jim. In that great French tradition of artistic rebellions, the New Wave came about when a band of writers for the film journal Cahiers du Cinema began to attack the staid conventions of French cinema at the time. Borrowing money and filming on location, by 1959 they were a force to reckon with, and the French New Wave was born. This book documents all of the New Wave from its inception through its decade of flourishing and to its eventual demise, as signaled by the new approaches its directors were taking. The French New Wave's bold graphic design and numerous film stills highlight what is, without question, the most important and comprehensive book on this genre. Written and assembled by writer and director Jean Douchet -- himself a participant in the French New Wave -- it will stand as the classic reference work on the subject for years to come.
