    who belonged to any club. I didn 't get down on my knees at the Cahiers du Cinéma altar.’ (Beineix …) He was later joined by Luc Besson and his film ‘Le Grand Bleu’ (1983), screened at Cannes Film Festival where Beineix’s second film ‘La Lune dans le caniveau’ (‘The moon in the gutter’, 1983) was booed and discredited by most, including Gérard Depardieu, the film’s major star. Despite the bad reviews, Beineix’s third project, ‘37º2 le matin’ (1876) had the same influence and cult-film effect on the youth culture in France and internationally as ‘Diva’ had. This was mainly due to Beatrice Dalle’s unanticipated performance where she managed to flawlessly capture the perfect combination of innocence and rebelliousness characteristic of 1980’s youth Zeitgeist as well as portraying an “icon of femininity in the 1980s” (Wilson, 1999:57). LUC BESSON: Luc Besson is the most ambiguous out of these two directors, receiving constant ridicule from the French critic establishment while at the same time proving a sustained hit within the young audiences. His films tell stories of misunderstood individuals who not only cannot fit into society’s forms, but are also prevented from achieving their goals because of their continuous conflictive state with society. A society that he pictures as the reason for young people’s emotional deprivation up to the age of 20’. (Besson cites in The Observer Review 30.10.94).

    n utilised in their own works. Though “the young French cinema indirectly reproached Hollywood’s long-established narratives and restricted storyline subterfuges” (Lanzoni, 206), the French New Wave directors also had a longstanding appreciation for directorial greats like Alfred Hitchcock, Fritz Lang and Orson Welles.
