Cinema has been long associated with France, dating back to 1895, when Louis and Auguste Lumi_re screened their works, the first public viewing of films anywhere. Early silent pioneers Georges MZli_s, Alice Guy BlachZ and others followed in the footsteps of the Lumi_re brothers and the tradition of important filmmaking continued throughout the 20th century and beyond. In Encyclopedia of French Film Directors, Philippe Rège identifies every French director who has made at least one feature film since 1895. From undisputed masters to obscure one-timers, nearly 3,000 directors are cited here, including at least 200 filmmakers not mentioned in similar books published in France. Each director's entry contains a brief biographical summary, including dates and places of birth and death; information on the individual's education and professional training; and other pertinent details, such as real names (when the filmmaker uses a pseudonym). The entries also provide complete filmographies, including credits for feature films, shorts, documentaries, and television work. Some of the most important names in the history of film can be found in this encyclopedia, from masters of the Golden Age_Jean Renoir and RenZ Clair_to French New Wave artists such as Fran_ois Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard.

Sparks fly in this amusing bi-lingual love story between an American man who can’t stand to be in smoking environments and a French woman who simply refuses to give up cigarettes. He’s a writer, she a stage director trained in the Russian theatre, but at present with no dramatic company of her own. They meet in Paris at a time when smoking has been banned in France but also at the very moment a well-financed commercial effort is afoot to bring back the past. Cigarette and cosmetic companies unite to rekindle the joie de vivre of smoking in the public’s consciousness. In a homage the past, the business interests stage a national smoking contest for women and our heroine decides to become a contestant –much to the irritation of her American lover. Their relationship is already in distress as our heroine suspects that her lover has betrayed her with at least two women.
