France Cinema

France has many famous actors and actresses and some of them are: Brigitte Bardot, Sarah Bernhardt, Marcel Marceau, Jeanne Moreau, Catherine Deneuve, Michel Piccoli, Jacques Tati, Gerard Depardieu and Jean-Louis Trintignant. The Cinema in France is well developed, is hasn't got the same quality as North American Cinema but it does have its own perspective. The French-speaking market is not as big as the English-speaking one, but major French films are not purely commercial and generally try to contain a message.

Every year in France, one of the most important film Festivals, the Cannes Film Festival,takes place, in May. The French Government has taken some measures to help French cinema. Now for example Canal Plus TV channel has a broadcast licence which is supposed to support the production of films. As well as this some taxes on movies and TV channels are levied, and the best thing is that it is prohibited to sell some of the films that have been recently shown. It's only possible to do so six months after it has been shown in any cinema.

Some examples of French movie films are: When the Cat's Away, My Life in Pink, a history of a boy who wants to be a girl, Les Enfants du Marais, and more.
