    Synopsis

    The making of "100 Years of French Cinema" required two years of research and preparation, with the screening of thousands of films and several months of editing... "100 Years of French Cinema" of course contains extacts from masterpieces, the most celebrated films in the first century of French cinema, but also from certain lesser known works that have contributed to its richness and diversity. All genres, all styles are represented. "100 Years of French Cinema" obvlously acclaims the top directors and writers but doesn't ignore the countless craftsman who made French cinema a quality product. "100 Years of French Cinema" naturally presents the most prestigious actors and actresses but doesn't neglect the wonderful supporting actors. "100 Years of French Cinema" is a tribute to the cinema but also to the reason for its existence : the audience !

    Subject

    "... Technically, this what is known as a compilation film. The term is a little frightening because one immediately thinks of anthologies, selected extracts and catalogues. Well, here, a miracle has occured. This is a true film made up of 300 other films... A genuinely homogenous film ; a puzzle, true, but one whose edges are made indistinguishable by smooth editing, subtle cuts and loose construction. One sees only a single film telling a true story, that of French cinema. A story that, like all good stories, amuses us, moves us, keep us on tenterhooks...and leaves us asking for more. Because it all ends too soon. It's an exhilarating film..."
