Disciplining the nouvelle vague: censoring A Bout de Souffle and other early French new wave films (1956-1962)

Daniël Biltereyst UGent (2010) Je t’aime... moi non plus : Franco-British cinematic relations. p.103-116
abstract
A series of limiting definitions have tended to delineate the Franco-British cinematic relationship. As this collection of essays reveals, there is much more to it than simple oppositions between British critical esteem for the films of France and French dismissal of “le cinéma British,” or the success of Ken Loach et al. at the French box office and the relative dearth of French movies on British screens. In fact, there has long been a rich and productive dialogue between these two cultures in which both their clear differences and their shared concerns have played a vital role. This book provides an overview of the history of these relations from the early days of sound cinema to the present day. The chapters, written by leading experts in the history of French, British and European cinema, provide insights into relations between French and British cinematic cultures at the level of production, exhibition and distribution, reception, representation and personnel. The book features a diverse range of studies, including: the exhibition of French cinema in Britain in the 1930s, contemporary “extreme” French cinema, stars such as Annabella, David Niven and Jane Birkin, and the French Resistance on British screens.
