The French Screen by Victor Morton
In the National Review of all places, we are treated to an ode to French cinema from the 1920's to the present. I've always loved French films for having adult characters who are actually grown-up (see A Heart in Winter aka Un Coeur En Hiver). Hollywood, on the other hand, has such a penchant for escapism, that both its comedies and its tragedies deploy characters who just don't seem like people you would actually ever meet.
