Sponsored by Alliance Francaise du Manitoba.

Reviews

A wide-ranging, three-hours-plus history of French filmmaking, from Children of Paradise to Forbidden Games. It’s both a salute to the New Wave that sent other critics to filmmaking careers and a series of demonstrations of how color, music and camera movements can transform a story into a vital piece of cinema. Astonishing.
- John Hartl, Seattle Times
Its explanatory title doesn’t begin to convey just how exhilarating or inspiring a documentary this truly is…It’s delightful to share in that passion and a pleasure.
