Her films, including 'Chocolat', 'Beau travail' and 'White Material' explore connections between national experience and individual circumstance, visualising the complications of such dualities. Following a foreword by Wim Wenders, international contributors explore the themes she addresses in her films, such as kinship and landscape, neo-colonialism and New French Extremity. Original interviews with an editor, actor and two composers familiar with Denis's working style and with Denis herself, also reveal fresh facets of this intrepid filmmaker." - BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes list of illustrations, bibliographic references and index ISBN: 9781848859548 Contents: --List of illustrations -- Notes on contributors -- Preface -- Foreword: 'Klarchen'

From his clutch of provocative and award-winning shorts in the mid-1990s to his increasingly celebrated features, including Swimming Pool, Les Amants criminels, and 5x2, as well as the star-studded, millenial classic of high camp, 8 femmes, Ozon's films have remaned silmultaneously seductive and experimental, playful and gruesome. What emerges from Andrew Asibong's passionate and highly engaged scrutiny of Ozon's cinema, however, is the extent to which the director's breezily confrontational work throws up urgent and unavoidable questions about the cinematic representation of pyschic, familial, social, and even ontological transformation. Asibong considers how Ozon's apparently subversive explorations of feminine and 'queer' desire, as well as his ongoing fascination with sadomasochistic power relations, all operate at a far more ambivalent psychoanalytic and political level than either Ozon's champions or detractors seem willing to admit. He then goes on to suggest that what may be at stake in Ozon's alternatively utopian and cynical flirtation with the construction and deconstruction of contemporary human relationships on film."
