Screenwriters of European Cinema

Screenwriters of European Cinema


I have posted this page spontaneously as on a search for Andrei Tarkovsky's Nostalgia I came across a page on Tonino Guerra who I hadn't previously heard of. I was astonished to see which films he had been involved with which made me recognise that  screenwriters are often ignored especially as their scripts are often changed in the filming and editing process with elements being cut out which they might have considered important to the creation of meaning within the film. Yet pausing to think some of the greatest of European auteurs have been strongly associated with particular scriptwriters: Suso Cecchi d'Amico & Visconti; Zavattini with de Sica; Laverty with Loach. as auteurist studies are less than popular within film studies at present with writers on a particular director often making an apology and claiming new auteurism as a defence which recognises the importance of the whole production team and a creative process of whom the director becomes a sort of 'primus inter pares' as they used to say about British cabinet government and the role of the Prime Mnister. 

I'm not intending to make a very active exploration of this at the moment but some visitors may wish to. If as in the case of Tonino Guerra I turn up interesting links I shall include them here which may help others in their thoughts and explorations. Here are some links to start off with -  happy hunting.
