ABSTRACT
The article focuses on issues related to French films. To consider the French film is to consider, by and large, the most sophisticated cinema, and by sophistication. According to the author, he mean all that the word implies: the French can get away with a technical sloppiness or cheapness by sheer elan and the kind of impudence and laissezfaire that comes from consciously careless superiority. Gerard Philipe, an actor of exceptional charm under any flag acts in Racine at the Comedie Francaise, as does Jean Marais, also a film star. One detects in Philipe's semi-grotesque barker, who introduces and supposedly relates the fables of The Seven Deadly Sins, an authority that comes of a width of professional as well as of private and social experience. Some of the films discussed are: Fanfan the Tulip; Justice Is Done; Forbidden Games; Orpheus; etc.
