This term we will watch the full film "The Return of the Hero" or "Le retour du heros" over the four weeks in class.

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to discuss this French film in light of its cultural and historical context, apply a critical interpretation of the film with reference to secondary literature, analyse and understand the narratives, techniques and theme of the film with the aim to improve listening, speaking, reading and comprehension skills.
The film: 1809, France. The captain and grandson Charles-Grégoire Neuville (Dujardin) suddenly leaves for the war, leaving, Pauline, his future bride heartbroken. Although he promises to write every day, he doesn’t. Elisabeth (Laurent) writes letters to Pauline who believes everything she reads. Until the day when Captain Neuville reappears.
