From the Cannes film festival and Brigitte Bardot to virtual film stars and Virginie Ledoyen, French film stars embody glamour, sexiness and controversy. Stars in Modern French Film analyzes the essential French stars of the last fifty years, paying detailed attention to screen performance, representation in the popular press, and social and political contexts in which they functioned. Guy Austin's lucid and engaging account charts the making (and in some cases breaking) of the icons of French cinema, including such famous names as Catherine Deneuve, GA(c)rard Depardieu, and Brigitte Bardot, as well as more recent stars like BA(c)atrice Dalle, Emmanuelle BA(c)art, and Samy NacA(c)ri.

Stars in Modern French Film is highly readable, easily accessible, and will be very appealing to those who know the stars and have seen at least some of their movies. Patricia B. Westphal, French Review
