These films occupy a specific cultural space and are influenced by national traditions and shared cultural references, but at the same time they have always been difficult to classify. Often a combination of several genres, they can be described as a hybrid art form, incorporating basic slapstick elements (the Lumières brothers Larroseur arrosé, 1895) all the way to rather daring, even delicate subjects such as war (Autant-Laras La traversée de Paris, 1956) or racism (Philippe de Chauverons Quest-ce quon a fait au Bon Dieu? 2014). The diversity of disciplines - history, linguistics, and social and political sciences - that form the background of this analysis guarantees a variety of approaches.

French Comedy on Screen investigates the different methods in which these comedies textually inscribed and exemplified an array of cultural and historical landmarks.
