What makes an Italian film Italian or a French film French? Are Hollywood films really American? This study reveals how centralization, common language, and narrative convention express the cultural heritages within the national cinemas of nine countries. Celli brings critical theory and artistic expression back into equilibrium with a method that demonstrates how popular cinema truly can explain the world, one country at a time.
