National cinemas discussed include Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Spain and France. Michael Caine's status as a working class hero is featured alongside Gene Kelly and camp, and Alain Delon's spectacular masculinity; other films mentioned include Aprile, Seul contre tous, Notting Hill, The Beach and Gladiator.
