Talk about Cinema


Jean-Baptiste Thoret

ISBN 9782080200969

Not part of the Masters of Cinema series but a good book to accompany books in that series.

Talk about Cinema is a fresh, engaging book that provides the key ideas for a better understanding of cinematic style and the reference terms that are crucial to film studies. It defines the main notions of film, explains major dates in its history, deciphers the leading works, and presents the portraits of thirty singificant filmmakers. Photographs of  actors and directors both on set and screen provide  insight into their  world, and a glossary of key film terms ensures that the text is always accessible.

Richly illustrated throughout, 256 pages, 230 x 190mm, softcover with flaps, packed with useful and interesting material that is suitable for both an introduction to the field and deeper research.
