This paper focuses on Jeunet's use of post production techniques to create a distinctive atmosphere or 'mise-en-scene' to the narrative, arguing that these processes create another layer of meaning to the action on screen. It also looks into the wider issue of Jeunet's representation of Paris itself, arguing that although he has created an unrealistic image of the city with little notion of the 'real' Paris that these aspects contribute to the success of the film. Finally, it analyses the postmodern techniques Jeunet employs, arguing that by utilising these techniques within the scene he has a stronger hold on his directorial control, creating an engaging film that not only draws the audience further into the action, but aids his own postmodern ideal of grasping onto the small pleasure in life. These factors all work hand in hand within this short scene, Jeunet marries this mix of techniques together to create an aesthetic signature that adds to the success of his award winning film.

Research paper from the year 2011 in the subject French - Literature, Works, LMU Munich (Fakultaet fuer Sprach- und Literaturwissenschaften), course: French - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, language: English, abstract: This approach may at first sight appear like a linguistic revolt or rebellion since it distorts and massacres the French vocabulary and grammar. The goal of Ahmadou Kourouma and his colleagues is to prove that the French language cannot open up the African Weltanschauung (World view). The truth is simply that the structure of the French language fails to describe and express the African thought. This is exactly what the Canadians, the Swiss and the Belgians observed that made them invent Canadian French, Swiss French, and Belgian French. Elsewhere in European Studies I have advocated this intercultural dialogue in German Studies (Germanistik and Interkulturelle Germanistik) as a way out in the poor performance of the dissemination of German language, literature and culture. Even in English, we have the Queens English, the American English and the African pidgin English. Africans can as well have African French. Each writer faced with the realities of myriads of African misery: Colonialism, slavery, neo - colonialism, civil and religious wars, cannot afford the luxury of l'Art pour l'Art. Ahmadou Kourouma has to use the French language to mobilize his people for a way forward. He needed to bear a genuine testimony to the situation of his people, but he could not achieve this mobilization of his uneducated people adequately faced with the dilemma of using a foreign language.
Essay from the year 2012 in the subject French - Literature, Works, , language: English, abstract: 'Comedy is, as I have said, an imitation of lower types...' Aristotle believed that, in order for a comedy to be truly believable and enjoyable, it had to involve characters to whom the audience could easily relate, i.e. people below the upper classes. Consequently, many comedies revolve around family dramas and Molière's 'Le Tartuffe' is no exception. The entertaining family drama in this case concerns the man Tartuffe's attempt to manipulate and undermine Orgon and his family. It cannot be denied, therefore, that there exists an attempt to undermine the family, and that the schemer is Tartuffe himself. Mikhail Bulgakov condemns the character to be '...the most complete and consummate swindler, liar, scoundrel, informer and spy - a hypocrite, lecher, and seducer of other men's wives.' It is clear that Tartuffe is an immoral man and at the very least partly, if not quite completely, responsible for the family's misfortunes.
This is the complete story of Il Fait Beau, which is a romantic and thrilling comedy written for beginning and intermediate Francophones. You'll be amazed at how quickly you'll be able to learn French fast. Part of the reason behind that is the fact that you're doing more mentally than trying to translate words. You'll be following dramatic action, identifying with characters and wondering what is going to happen next. Just like you would a story in English. Synopsis: Benoit is a Parisian gypsy-jazz violinist who lives a carefree life with his dog, André. Marie-Anne is a beautiful,l but spoiled, rich hotel heiress who finds herself in a struggle with a taxi-driver who wants her somewhat obscene diamond. Benoit rescues her, but declines her gratuity in the form of a dinner. Why? Marie-Anne is confused and angry. Also, nobody, but nobody, declines her invitation. And so the fun begins. This exciting story is told in easy to understand dialogue form with no translations to interfere. You just click on a word you don't know and the translation appears in the endnotes.

"Introduction: Les auteurs de la Grammaire critique du français critiquent le fait que l'enseignement bétonne la limite territoriale du 'participe présent' invariable le participe-verbe et de l''adjectif verbal' variable le participe-adjectif""  et que ""le 'gérondif' devien[ne] simplement un 'participe présent précédé de la préposition en'"" . Le traité suivant montrera que la distinction entre ces trois formes grammaticales du système langagier français n'est pas si claire. D'abord, l'adjectif verbal (seulement celui avec la dési-nence en ant sera d'intérêt), le participe présent dans ses différentes fonctions et bien que plus briè-vement le gérondif seront présentés. Ensuite on parlera des problèmes de distribution entre l'adjectif verbal et le participe présent et entre le participe présent et le gérondif. L'exposé tiendra toujours compte du contraste entre les systèmes langagiers français et allemand. Comme le corpus Maigret et l'Inspecteur Malgracieux de GEORGES SIMENON (indiqué dans le travail par M) contient seulement peu de participes présents, qui constituent cependant le sujet central ici, j'ai choisi en plus le roman Une Vie de GUY DE MAUPASSANT (indiqué par V), qui est plein de formes en ant. Le premier chapi-tre de ce roman me permettra de présenter à la fin de mon exposé un dépouillement statistique des formes en ant au vu de leur traduction. La version allemande du roman, Ein Leben, fournie par HANS KAUDERS me servira de traduction."
Essay from the year 2015 in the subject French - Literature, Works, grade: A 99.0, , course: ENGH 302 Advanced Composition, language: English, abstract: A chronicle of the symbolists' influence over Rimbaud's early poetry, and how he laid the foundation for Surrealism with his exploration of the unconscious in 'A Season in Hell'. As a young poet, Arthur Rimbaud expressed a keen desire of becoming a seer: one who forecasts the future through supernatural insight. Throughout his career, he sought visionary status by pushing the boundaries of poetic expression with his efforts of materializing the supernatural in his poetry. Rimbaud began fulfilling his goal by studying the work of the symbolists and incorporating their revolutionary modes of expression into his own poetry. Yet Rimbaud pushed the boundaries of poetic expression even further with his efforts to penetrate the deepest layers of the mind. By 1873, Rimbaud began exploring the mysterious realm of the unconscious through his own method of psychoanalysis, a popular subject of Surrealism: a movement that entered the literary scene nearly four decades after the French Symbolists. Rimbaud portrays his unconscious thoughts and memories in A Season in Hell with the style he adapted from studying the symbolists. By composing A Season in Hell with the stylistic elements of Symbolism and the psychoanalytical focus that dominated Surrealism, Rimbaud bridges the gap between both poetic movements
