Writing abut[i french films

In this section we include specimen essays by students on French cinema, and sequence analyses by Phil Powrie. The purpose is to show you how you can write on a film or on a topic. We have therefore commented on each piece from a variety of perspectives, whether the purely formal (the structure and argument of the piece), or conceptual (the way in which the author has used specific themes or ideas familiar in Film Studies). The choice of films is not intended to be representative, but to suggest a variety of types of writing on film in the Essays section, as well as a selection of approaches to sequence analysis. The one thing we have tried to do is to tie one of the sequence analyses closely to one of the essays, on the 1989 film Monsieur Hire.
