en Limba Engleză Paperback – February 2006
Film Fables traces the history of modern cinema. Encyclopedic in scope, Film Fables is that rare work that manages to combine extraordinary breadth and analysis with a lyricism which attests time and again to a love of cinema.Jacques Ranciere moves effortlessly from Eisenstein's and Murnau's transition from theatre to film to Fritz Lang's confrontation with television, from the classical poetics of Mann's Westerns to Ray's romantic poetics of the image, from Rossellini's neo-realism to Deleuze's philosophy of the cinema and Marker's documentaries.The Film Fable shows us how, between its images and its stories, the cinema tells its truth.

A remarkable and beautiful book which, with immense elegance, sets aside the difficulties of film theory to recreate a liberating, critical and poetic history of cinema.
An important exploration of the tensions, ruptures and continuities that complicate the twists and folds of the history of cinema.
What really sets the book apart is Ranciere's gifts as a writer and fine-grain critic... The wide-ranging analyses emerge out of a truly intimate knowledge of the films, expressed with loving attention to the most minute of formal details--a hesitant gesture, a recurring sound, a glimmer of light. Like all the best books by philosophers on cinema, Ranciere encourages us at once to think and to see these images anew.
A compelling study that will leave an enduring mark on film and media studies.
