Quelque vingt-cinq ans plus tard, le lecteur retrouve les protagonistes du ##Déclin de l'Empire américain## au chevet d'un Rémy qui, dévoré par un cancer, n'a plus que quelques jours à vivre.

Maniant humour et émotion avec maestria, un regard à la fois critique et tendre sur le début du 21e siècle. [SDM]

Inside the historical film by Bruno Ramirez( Book )
5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in French and held by 23 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
