The 1930s – particularly the decade between the advent of sound and the outbreak of the Second War – are a golden age of French cinema, marked by the emergence of key directors (Carné, Renoir), actors (Jean Gabin, Michel Simon, Arletty) and scriptwriters (Jacques Prévert) as well as by the cinema’s movement to the position at once of massively popular form of entertainment and of major artistic medium. These factors will all be taken into account in our study of the period (taught and assessed in English).
