French Impressionist Cinema

In 1920's the group of French film makers joined together and formed cinema movement called French Impressionist Cinema. And also called First Avant-Grade or Narrative Cinema. The origin this cinema movement is comes from the "Impressionism" was came from the great painting called "Soleil Levant, 1872" which was painted by Claude Monet.

At first film scholars were found some obstacles to call French Impressionist cinema as a movement and which was not defined fully. Later the David Bordwell was attempted to define the stylistic paradigms in the French impressionistic cinema. Those stylistic paradigms are
  1. Camera work
  2. Mise-en-scene
  3. Optical device
  4. Characteristics editing patterns
