One of the two best shows in the series.
20 August 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This fourth episode from the six-part mini-series "Cinema Europe: The Other Hollywood" is an exploration of the French film industry from after WWI up until the introduction of sound. Episode one, an overview of the European film industry's birth actually focuses A LOT on the French until just after WWI and this fourth one picks right up from there.

Just like the previous episode (which focused on the German film industry), I think this fourth show is the best in the series. Unlike the many spoilers given in the third one, this one does far less. It also gives LOTS of behind the scenes information about new techniques--and I loved this. And, it discusses the many great French epics of the time--especially "Napoleon". Well worth seeing--and very exciting for the film lover--especially the silent film lover. Well-constructed and fascinating throughout.
