Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
This quotation from Luc Besson's book of the film Leon aptly sums up this director's entire conflictual relationship with the so-called heavyweights of French film criticism (Positif, Cahiers du Cinema) and to a certain degree with the French film industry itself. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
Brilliant. It is very satisfying to read a well written and thoroughly researched book on French cinema and one of my favourite directors. Great launch pad into other related works such as Lois McNay and Guiliana Bruno. And of course I want to resee Diva and Subway...

The definitive Besson handbook. 12 Sept. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Congratulations must go to Susan Hayward for writing this wonderful study of one of the world's greatest directors. This book goes into the marvellous detail that so many leave out. Of particular interest is the study of violence, and the 'fear of youth' concept.
The whole book is incredibly well-written and excellently set-out, with colorful and relevant illustrations where necessary. Even the more difficult to grasp concepts are explained perefectly so as not to alienate the less film-literate readers. It seems as though Ms. Hayward has a particular affinity for 'Leon', which is studied at length, again in a very approachable and yet insightful manner.
In conclusion, it is fair to say that this book is the perfect springboard into appreciateing the films of Luc Besson, perhaps of French cinema as a whole.
Heartily reccomended.
