The French Cinephile Is Disappearing
Guess what? French people like big dumb comedies and action flicks just like everyone else around the world.

It's easy to see why people would rather see "Days of Glory" than the oblique, slow, depressing "Flandres." Ah well, one more reason for Godard to despise Spielberg.
