    A Deep Focus

    Film is not an imitation of life, but life itself. That's what Monaco teaches us in his book. He not only gives a detailed study of the history of world cinema but also provides us with the understanding of film theory which has dominated cinema for a century, and also the language of cinema, semiotics, which helps to develop a film shot by shot. This book defines film as an independent art form.
