9:28 from which movie are these two shots?
Amazing music choice.
there is a lot of jumpcut in takeshi kitaro movies
Thank you for explanation!
what film is this 3:46
Could you perhaps list all the films you've used in this video? Thanks!
The 'Young Turks' is a political movement against the Sultan in Turkey. I've never heard the Nouvelle Vague directors referred to with that term. To get the NV aesthetic, see Robbe-Grillet as the theoretician of the period. I wonder what if any influence Russian theorists like Dziga Vertov had, whether their ideas reached France. I feel sure they must have.
So called 'jump cuts' existed from the earliest films, only their aesthetic was worked out much later. Godard used them a lot, with deliberately jarring cuts at that. I've noticed recently much use of the soundtrack as glue between two scenes, with audio anticipating the site of the next scene. For example the audio may have a conversation which the actor is shown on his way to have. This is very economical with the temporal space while not being as jarring as a 'smash cut'.
This whole 'the audience is made to realise they are watching a movie', or Brechtian Alienation [ verfremdungseffect ] has worn very thin, It always reminds me of the peasant actors in Midsummer Night's Dream putting on a play. They worry that the representation of a lion in their play may frighten the delicate ladies in the audience so make a big issue of uncovering the pretence in advance. 'Breaking the fourth wall', addressing the audience, I admit for me it's all lost its appeal. I'd rather you immersed me in a believable world, and let me live a different life through your characters. [ I have lost a lot of my enjoyment of the arts by knowing how things work behind the scenes!]
whats the song in the beggining???
and the song at the ending goddamnit
Thanks for enlightening me. Fascinating to watch.
6:11 "You may be familiar with 'Ode to a Fairy.' Well that too stemmed from the era of the new wave."
( 13:40 ) … and occasionally we may say something old but we say in a new ( not necessarily better ) ways. As long as the message is delivered and received.
A match cut is not a jump cut. Besides that: awesome video! Thank you.
Wonderful, just the information I needed! 😀
great video, but you made a lot of errors in the movie titles in the end
i am genetically wired like the french film makers….
Not really a fan of French New Wave as they are the grandfathers of Michael Bay

la photographie c'est la vérité, mais le cinéma c'est 24 fois la vérité par seconde
name of all those movies (french movies) on that video ?
super informative thanks!
This is quickly becoming one of my favourite youtube channels.
Thank you, as a french it is weird to see some of this actors who became famous in France, nowing that today most of them are dead or too old to do movies anymore. There will be no more actors like that.
"La photographie c'est la vérité. Et le cinéma, c'est la vérité vingt-quatre fois par seconde."
Buttery…biscuits! Thanks for the video! Great food for thought!
great one 🙂
ayo wat dats movie with da titties @
A comment below about the Japanese films of that period having their place too. One trait of the Japanese films was technique of a still composition (no camera movement) with the actors doing all the intricate movements within the frame, almost the opposite of French New Wave of lots of camera movement. And the scenes with a still composition with no actors, but the camera holding for long time on a static scene, or rain dripping off roof eave, etc. There was one Japanese director who was master of this style, forget name.
Can you post a list of the films used?
What's the name of the korean film at 3:55?
There's a bit of french new wave non conventionalism in the video essay itself…and I'm not sure it helps. While the compilation of shots is beautiful and revealing of the style of the french new wave, this script is repetitive and doesn't really say much more than the very basic idea "the french new wave doesn't do things conventionally" it tries to get specific with alternative editing methods, but it doesn't do a great job of being clear about what makes those alternatives really helpful. If you aren't already a film nerd, I think this video would be incomprehensible.
3:52 is not a jump cut, a jump cut is a cut in film editing in which two sequential shots of the same subject are taken from camera positions that vary only slightly if at all. This type of edit gives the effect of jumping forwards in time :-
Best video essay ever
Most of the movies are kind of overrated in my opinion. i started watching "the wave", by year..59, 60..61 and so on.. And honestly, it was a great decade, don't take me wrong. But cinematographers make way too much big deal about it to justify all those hours in film school. . Fellini had way more content in the movies from the 60's 🙂 Sure Godard open many windows, but many others did it too. stop making it so much about France, people.
What was that first line “ lights, camera, ACTION!” from?!? She sounded adorable!
French people are the best
"because they could"
Idk for some weird reason i was expecting a hair style kind of essay
"Who're you talking to?"
(Glances nervously over her shoulder. 'How long has that been there?' she thinks.)
what movie is at 10:51?
I appreciate the fact that you had each shot labelled with the film's name. Thank You.
Stop with the Tarantino "acknowledgement"…..complete Hack….
is there a snoring sound in the video or am i tripping?
NICE TO HEARING NUJABES SONG
Good video but I wish you included Agnès Varda right at the beginning, instead of waiting 8:30mn… She was the coolest of them all!!! Still is. And "Cleo de 5 à 7" is a very original film that came a little it after "A bout de souffle".
omg this is so good.
While I enjoy the songs you used for this video I found them distractingly mismatched to the content of the video, unless there's some hidden French New Wave hip-hop connection I'm missing.
Are you playing "We Got the Jazz" by A Tribe called Quest ? If so, this video just got groovier.
They weren't called "The Young Turks" lol And you need to grow up a little before tackling subjects like this
Emmanuel Lubezki is genius but he was under the direction of Alfonso Cuarón, who was the mastermind behind that scene on Children Of Men.
what type of fire shit is this? Nujabes, Madlib, MF Doom? who are you?!
Ahhh, “Hello There Joe”, I wish I could find that original song. Loved it in AWIAW.
I'm a film student from England and I love this video. I always come back to it. You've kind of inspired me to do a short French new wave for my very end project.
Don't watch "Weekend". Ever. Biggest pile of dogshite ever.
Im just saying if you guys want to know the name of a movie you can turn on the subtitles
"who are you speaking to?" "The audience." great video! really appreciate it
So glad I discovered your channel!!! I cannot get enough…I have been binge-watching all your videos 🙂 If you ever need a film composer…let me know!
What about analyzing some of the 5th generation Chinese film director's works…To Live, The Blue Kite, Back to 1942, In the Mood for Love, etc…
1:41 The small soldier is not a short film !!
Alain Robbe-Grillet, screenwriter of Last Year in Marienbad: https://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/24/weekinreview/24donadio.html"In an interview, P. Adams Sitney, a Princeton film professor, called the film “an extremely abstract version” of Hitchcock’s “Vertigo,” in which a woman “disappears and maybe dies and yet transmographies into the land of the Nouveau Roman.” In his view, “the combination of Robbe-Grillet’s literary prestige and the innovative nature of ‘Marienbad’ was perfect for that moment in the history of taste.”
Could please make a video… About Hitchcok and the Nouvel vague…sorry I do not speak english nither french, but I try
The lack of internet in the 60s and 70s meant they REALLY had to be creative.
that was great!!
fire background tunes b
Un Tour de Force, chapeau!
Was that Bob Dylan I saw at 8:05
ofc criswell listens to madlib
Not in a considerably long time have I felt inspiration this way. Great video.
Could you please speak slowly? I know this channel is not for every one. Your english is plain…international. But have mercy with your international audience??? sorry for the request
I hate when director block the actor to stand and talk in front of camera. Hollywood technics are boring and also are reason of why so many beginers in filmmaking wants to achieve "cinematic" look of their movies while it's about movement to show story in frame. The French New Wave shows that cinema today is in stangation where stories are just words putting onscreen.
Why the heck are there always beautiful women and ugly men in French movies??
There were montages before the French New Wave. There's one in Citizen Kane which was made more than ten years earlier.
Amazing video and props for the soundtrack, don't forget all caps when you spell the man name though lol
Anyone know 5:27?
So basically the French invented cinema a second time.
