The Forgotten Auteur: Julien Duvivier by Ben McCann

Research output: Contribution to journalShort ReviewOtherpeer-review


Extract: “Duvivier is ripe for rediscovery”, declares Ben McCann in the opening to his book on French filmmaker Julien Duvivier and indeed the cineaste is a welcome addition to the French Film Directors series published by Manchester University Press. The series itself is designed for students and teachers seeking a rigorous critical study of French cinema, as well as the cinema enthusiast, and McCann’s book is certainly aimed at this broad audience.
