A central figure in the collaborative group of critics-turned-filmmakers who emerged from the magazine La Lettre du cinéma, Bozon had his international breakthrough with 2007’s La France, a singular and utterly charming combination of World War I trench drama and sunshine pop musical. See it here, as well as the equally idiosyncratic Tip Top, a comic policier which uncovers some deadly serious facts about France’s colonialist past, and marvel at Bozon’s ability to reinvent cinema by bending familiar genre tropes into new and exotic shapes.
