Summary
  • "Classics such as Breathless, Contempt, Jules and Jim, and Masculine/Feminine laid the groundwork for today's independent film industry and catapulted relative unknowns Brigitte Bardot, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Jean Seberg, and Jean-Luc Godard into our cultural pantheon. Breaking with the old studio system, the New Wave directors Godard, Truffaut, Claude Chabrol, Jacques Rivette, Eric Rohmer and others insisted on seeing the director as an author or auteur both in their own film making and in the lively, impassioned debates they conducted in film journals like Cahiers du Cinema. By 1965 the New Wave was officially over, but the seeds of a new cinema had been planted and would continue to grow in the work of such contemporary directors as Francis Ford Coppola, Brian DePalma and Martin Scorsese, all of whom acknowledge their debt to the French New Wave."--BOOK JACKET.
