Audible Editor Reviews

A short but detailed introduction to French New Wave cinema, narrated in upbeat and cheery tones while fun music plays in the background. Performer Jude Beaumont describes the origin of the New Wave and its stylistic innovations, focusing on the stars, directors, and films that made the genre so memorable. She also notes the importance of the magazine Cahiers du Cinéma, French government funding programs, and left-leaning politics in general. This is a well-done if brief primer on the form, and a nice choice for someone looking to put a favorite film into context.
