"There is no other filmmaker like Claire Denis, and what a beautifuil gift to us all!" (Jim Jarmusch) During the 1990s, with films such as Chocolat, Nénette et Boni or Beau travail, French director Claire Denis has become one of the major figures of contemporary cinema. This book deals with her personality, her radical aesthetic and her cultural influences. Contributors include Peter Baxter, Jean-Luc Nancy, Christine N. Brinckmann, Ralph Eue, Martine Beugnet, Ekkehard Knörer, Vrääth Öhner, Michael Omasta, Isabella Reicher and Jim Jarmusch (preface).
