A French New Wave: The Blockbuster

http://www.indiewire.com/film/biz/bi...orldCine2.html


(indieWIRE/03.06.02) -- Audrey Tautou smiles impishly on the poster for "Amelie." And with box office triumphs the world over, it's no wonder she's grinning: the Gallic crowd-pleaser sits atop the crest of a new wave in French cinema, the blockbuster. Sure, you can still find dozens of smaller, more thought-provoking movies on Parisian screens, but increasingly, such titles are being overshadowed by homegrown heavy-hitters such as actioners like "Crimson Rivers" and "Brotherhood of the Wolf," comedies such as "The Closet" and "Sexy Boys," and studio franchises including "Asterix and Obelix," "Would I Lie to You" and "Taxi" ("Taxi 3" is already on the way). What's next, "Breathless 2: Michel's Revenge"?


Very good read on the state of French cinema and how it has to cope with its own success.

Oops, n/m...
I found the thread on the Canadian release of Amelie... Unfortunately, word is no English subs on it... and no word yet of an Eng. subbed version...

Anyone hears/sees differently... speak up!

Cheers,
Gabe
