Tufts University: FR075 - Classics of French Cinema - French - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Professor Lane is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about this topic. She is understanding of the fact that not everyone interprets movies the same way, and is thus open-minded when discussing films in class. This class gives students an appreciation for French film and a solid background for further study. The class is in English, so non-French speakers can take it as well. Due to the 3-hour duration, sometimes class got a little boring, but overall it was not difficult, so it's worth staying with it.
One movie was assigned each week, and was shown in Olin or on reserve in the library. Reading was assigned, but not really necessary. Don't buy the books- they're pretty pointless and they're all in the library anyway. One presentation per semester had to be made on a topic the Prof assigned, usually pertaining to the weekly movie or director. Final and midterm papers were assigned, the midterm being a minimum of 7 pages and the final a minimum of 10 pages. The assigned questions weren't difficult, and Prof. Lane was very available to discuss movies and answer questions.
