In the words of instructor Colette Juilliard:
"'La Grande Illusion' French Cinema in its European Context, 1920-1950, will introduce you to a moment in France’s turbulent and sometimes shameful history in the interwar years. We’ll browse through the different genres that developed within this period and see how two aesthetics–one happy, one 'noir'--ran parallel for over two decades.
All in all, the course is an invitation to cruise the French cinema from the 20’s to the 50’s, with some stops in German, British and Italian movies if time allows.
Hope you’ll enjoy the journey!”
