In this discerning new approach to cinema studies, Angela Dalle Vacche discusses how the use of pictorial sources in film enables eight filmmakers to comment on the interplay between the arts, on the dialectic of word and image, on the relationship between artistic creativity and sexual difference, and on the tension between tradition and modernity." - taken from back cover.

Geissendorfer, 1976); ZAZIE DANS LE METRO (FR, Louis Malle, 1960); MARQUIS OF O..., THE (GW/FR, Erich Rohmer, 1975) Summary: Adaptation as an art in itself is the theme of these original essays by leading film scholars and critics. Starting with some of the finest European films produced since World War II, they investigate the literary source of each. But their emphasis is on film, and their writing challenges the conventional assumption that a great book must inevitably make an inferior movie. It is the editors' premise that adaptation, especially in the hands of a gifted director, can be a lively and creative art. The essays offer a fresh perspective on both films and their directors - among them Antonioni, Bertolucci, Bunuel, Fassbinder, Godard, Ophuls, Truffaut. The genesis of films such as Blow-Up, The Conformist, and Jules et Jim is explored often frame-by-frame, for a fuller understanding of the creative process of filmmaking." - BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes index; Bibliography: p. -371; Filmography: p. -367 ISBN: 0804424039 : $14.95; 0804462771 (pbk.) : $6.95 LON: 79048073; 1813405 Contents: Delannoy's La Symphonie Pastorale (1946) from the novel by Andre Gide / Dudley Andrew -- Bresson's Diary of a Country Priest (1951) from the novel by Georges Bernanos / Dudley Andrew -- Ophul's La Ronde (1959) from the play by Arthur Schnitzler / Alan Williams -- Vadim's Les Liaisons Dangereuses 1960 (1959) from the novel by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos / John F.
