This book focuses on the debates which shook French cinema in the immediate aftermath of the student revolution of May 1968. Alison Smith examines these effects across the spectrum of French production, the rise of new genres and re-formulation of older ones. Chapters investigate political thrillers, historical films, new naturalism and Utopian fantasies, dealing with a wide variety of films. A particular concern is the extent to which filmmakers' ideas and intentions are contained in or contradicted by their finished work, and the gradual change in these ideas over the decade.
