The work focuses on representation of the marginal, drawing a parallel between the politics of representation, and the formal strategies adopted by contemporary filmmakers. Through detailed analysis of particular examples, it attempts to underline the existence of latent messages and of contradictory discourses. Although the study as a whole mentions a large number of movies, each of the chapters centres on a particular film, whilst highlighting a specific aspect of the marginal and its representation in film. The approach is based on the theories and recent debates which characterise much of the contemporary Anglo-Saxon artistic, social and political schools of thought, and which have informed the development of the field of Cultural Studies in particular. These theoretical tools developed in the Anglo-Saxon context are applied to recent trends of film making from France - where these grids of critical analysis have been largely ignored in favour of more formalist approaches, allowing, in conclusion, for a reassessment of some of the recent trends which mark contemporary French Cinema.
