La Nouvelle Vague : The Films Of The French New Wave - Various - Music From The Films

La Nouvelle Vague : The Films Of The French New Wave
Emerging in the late fifties with Truffaut's 400 Blows, Godard's Breathless and Resnais' Hiroshima, Mon Amor the French New Wave was an informal artistic movement that revolutionized the domestic film industry and had a profound influence on world cinema.The movement was spearheaded by a generation of brilliant new auteur directors; François Truffaut, Jean- Luc Godard, Alain Resnais, Claude Chabrol, Agnès Varda and Louis Malle and by such enigmatic new stars as Jeanne Moreau, Jean-Claude Brialy, Anna Karina and Jean-Paul Belmondo. Under the spell of John Ford, Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles and Nicholas Ray, their films were exuberant, innovative, elegant and, at times, infuriatingly pretentious. Low budgets, jump cuts, long takes, location shooting, natural lighting, collage, improvised dialogue, overlapping sound. A melange of techniques that were far from commonplace in 1958.Stylistically and philosophically, the ideas of the French New Wave have had a huge impact on the face of modern cinema. It's legacy lives on in the work of Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, Lindsay Anderson, Robert Altman and Quentin Tarantino.Our edition comprises original, historic scores from the groundbreaking films of the genre. Jazz, pop and orchestral themes by Michel Legrand, Serge Gainsbourg, Georges Delerue and others that capture the character and vitality of the French New Wave.
