It features a diverse mix of contributors, including leading scholars and film critics. Marseilles, France's oldest city, has a significant cinematic culture, dating back to the 1890s when the Lumiere brothers shot many films there. Due to its prolific film industry in the 1920s, Marseilles was referred to as 'the French Los Angeles'. "World Film Locations: Marseilles" features maps of film scenes, high quality screengrabs, and images of movie locations as they appear today, accompanied by original texts penned by leading international film scholars and critics. Essays treat Marcel Pagnol's classic trilogy, firmly ensconced within the French collective unconscious- cinematic adaptations of the Marseillais novelist Jean-Claude Izzo- onscreen appearances of the Old Port and the Canebiere, and immigrants in Marseilles films. Scene reviews are selected from 46 films, including oeuvres by acclaimed directors such as Jacques Audiard, Jean-Jacques Beineix, Luc Besson's Taxi franchise, Bertrand Blier, Richard Curtis, Jacques Demy, Jean Epstein, John Frankenheimer, William Friedkin, Jean-Luc Godard, Norman Jewison, Joshua Logan, Jean-Pierre Melville, Lazlo Moholy-Nagy, Manoel de Oliveira, Jean Renoir, Ridley Scott, and Berlin School auteur Angela Schanelac.
