This Oscar-nominated drama follows a group of intellectual friends during a country holiday. As the conversation naturally turns to sex, the men brag about their promiscuity while their female counterparts dish on their own exploits at a nearby gym. But what was a fun and titillating topic devolves into the catalyst of hurt feelings and accusations when an unexpected dinner guest reveals some shocking secrets.. Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the Academy Awards. Winner of the FIPRESCI Prize at the Cannes Film Festival.. "The mistake, in viewing THE DECLINE OF THE AMERICAN EMPIRE is to think it's about sex. It is really about what has replaced sex in our society - thinking and talking about sex. The movie is wise, deep, and painful..." - Roger Ebert

Inside the historical film by Bruno Ramirez( Book )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in French and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From cinema's beginnings filmmakers have turned to the past for their stories, so much so that in many ways our historical culture is shaped more in the movie theatre than in the classroom. Inside the Historical Film argues how and why film can enrich our understanding of the past. Bruno Ramirez discusses a wide range of films, from various historical and national contexts, pointing to the role that film-crafts play in translating historical events into cinematic language. He takes the reader through the process of conception, research, design, and production of several films that he researched and co-wrote, explaining the decisions that were made to best convey historical knowledge. The practice-based quality at the core of Ramirez's analysis is further enhanced by conversations with world-renowned film directors, including Denys Arcand, Constantin Costa-Gavras, Deepa Mehta, Renzo Rossellini, Paolo and Vittorio Taviani, and Margarethe von Trotta. Grounded in an appreciation for the interpretative value of making films and cinema's ability to reach large public audiences at personal and emotional levels, Inside the Historical Film seeks to understand historical films as both creative works and multi-layered representations of the past
