Description: Martin Scorcese has called Bertrand Tavernier France's leading director. The New Republic referred to him as "one of the best directors alive". Despite his skill and some critical acclaim, Tavernier is often misunderstood. The first work on Tavernier written in English, this book examines ten feature films that characterize Tavernier as an auteur.

One of those rare masters who can alter our prejudices between the beginning and the end of a film, Bertrand Tavernier changes the world, one viewer at a time. Tavernier does not restrict himself to traditional narrative. Instead, he rejects that traditional form, and replaces it with emotions, via the use of rhythm, tone, the everyday, and especially historical periods in transition. Tavernier serves the viewer an all too familiar world and then fractures that familiarity and breaks down the relationship between cause and effect.

This book is essential reading for all of those interested in French film, independent filmmakers, students or teachers of film history, and, of course, fans of Tavernier.
