Film Noir

Professor -- Mme Marie-Hlne Carpentier

Semester course, offered each semester: 1 unit

 

This course proposes to reflect on Film Noir, a genre where violence and crime (murder, robbery, kidnapping, ransom cons, escape, pursuit, revenge) exist to demonstrate heroism and provide a critical commentary on society.  Our reflections will reveal aspects of French film that link cinema and society, but also, paradoxically, what constitutes the difference between film and reality.
