World Cinema: The French New Wave


We watched a French film today in my World Cinema class; it was titled Breathless. We’ve already looked at a couple different countries and films that have come out of their industries, but I found this film especially interesting. I’m not sure what exactly drew me into the film, but I enjoyed it. It may be the fact that this film came from a period of time called ‘The French New Wave,’ which was basically a time when directors began creating their films as an artist. Other directors were of course artists in their own right, but this ‘New Wave’ marked a shift in the origin of the creativity and art of making a film. It was now more so with the director, rather than the producer.

Through this course, I’m beginning to appreciate films more greatly that have come from other industries. There’s something really intriguing about hearing a film in another language. I’ve been trying to focus more on the images and less so on the subtitles, but sometimes it’s difficult to do so. World Cinema is a course I may not have chosen to take if it hadn’t been required for my communication major, but I’ve really liked it thus far.
