The power of Pialat's realism has often overshadowed his formal originality and this study gives equal attention to formal issues, including the crucial role of montage in the elaboration of his filmic narratives." "The author provides a brief biographical sketch of the filmmaker, situating Pialat's work in relation to the New Wave and the popular Saturday night cinema of his childhood, as well as giving an overview of the major themes and formal preoccupations of his work. Subsequent chapters provide readings of each of his full-length films. The resulting volume is essential to any collection on French film and makes a valuable contribution to the broader field of French studies."--Jacket

Henry Miller called his friend Brassai "the eye of Paris." This strikingly innovative photographer revealed the City of Light as had no other artist before him, and his work continues to influence the art and practice of photography. In this authoritative, penetrating, and comprehensive study of Brassai's complete oeuvre, illustrated with reproductions of many stunning photographs, Marja Warehime analyzes Brassai's paradoxical position between documentary realism and Surrealism in the France of the 1930s. She stresses the subjects he pursued most passionately: the shadowy Parisian night, the scrawlings of urban graffiti, the nature of creative genius as reflected in studies of France's most celebrated artists and their studios. Warehime explores Brassai's striking, atmospheric images of cafes, dance halls, brothels, and streets where workers on the night shift mingle with tourists, night-clubbers, vagabonds, street toughs, performers, and prostitutes. Focusing on his photographs, but drawing also on his literary, aesthetic, biographical, and autobiographical writings - including letters that remain untranslated from the original Hungarian - Warehime examines Brassai's relationship to the Surrealist movement and shows us how his work evokes the cultural climate of France between the world wars. The history of his career, she demonstrates, reflects not only the development of photography but also the sweep of Western cultural history; his work bridges nineteenth-century romantic realism and modernism, anticipating the chief values of media culture: immediacy and emotional power
