By Jacques Aumont

« Metteur en scène » , « cinéaste » , « réalisateur » : trois désignations à peu près interchangeables dans l. a. langue courante, mais qui s’enracinent dans trois conceptions très différentes de los angeles création cinématographique. 

La thought de « mise en scène » vient du théâtre, et perdure dans une alternative toujours présente de soumission de l’art du movie au récit et au drame ; à l’opposé, les cinéastes n’ont cessé de chercher à inventer une approche proprement cinématographique de l. a. scène et du scénique au aspect que los angeles « mise en scène » a pu être brandie comme l’étendard d’un cinéma qui se vouait à « recréer le monde à partir de ce qu’il est » (M. Mourlet). Enfin, los angeles mise en scène est aussi une process, dont on met ici en évidence le lien fondamental avec l. a. fiction. 

Ce livre de référence, où los angeles réflexion s’appuie constamment sur des exemples voulus les plus variés attainable, suggest une véritable grille de lecture de los angeles création cinématographique, de ses visées et des choix qui s’offrent à elle pour relever les défis du « montrer à l’écran ».
