AperÇu Culturel Des Films Francophone
2004 0-7734-6489-1
This is a critical study of Francophone cultures as they can be detected from selected films, including ‘Daens’ (Belgium), ‘The Boat is Full’ (Switzerland), ‘Finzan’ (Mali); ‘Zan Boko’ (Burkina Faso), ‘Vagabond’ and/or ‘Life is a Long Quiet River’ (France) and others. Each chapter presents a list of idiomatic expressions (when appropriate), a critical study of the culture (traditional and contemporary), and a stylistic analysis of the script. It also stresses what is authentic and what is fiction.
