Modes, French

Who is responsible for telling the story, and the formal, stylistic format of the film? The setting/country where the film takes place
Auteur Theory The director, who oversees all audio and visual elements of the film, is to be considered more the “author” than the writer of the screenplay. Developed in 1940's & 50's France
Consistency Thesis A director’s work is recognizable as such. Can tell who directed a film based on style and cinematography, w/o seeing director name
French New Wave Young auteur theorists who were Influenced by Italian Neorealism and Hollywood Cinema, started to make their own movies. Challenged French studio system’s “tradition of quality”
Characteristics of French New Wave *Experimentation w/ film form *Playfulness w/ medium *Disjointed narrative *Characters w/o clear motivations, lack of story unity, or cause & effect, improvised dialogue, shooting on location
