Montage, découpage, mise en scène

Montage, découpage, mise en scène: these three French terms are central to debates around film history and aesthetics in every language, yet the precise meaning of each and especially their relationship to one another remain a source of confusion for many. In this volume, film scholars Laurent Le Forestier, Timothy Barnard and Frank Kessler examine the history of these concepts in film theory and criticism and their genesis and development in practice during cinema’s foundational first half-century and beyond. Each essay serves as an essential guide for students and specialists alike, combining historical overview with fresh ideas about film aesthetics today.
