dc.description.abstract Journalists turned cinematographers: Cahiers du Cinema and the Nouvelle Vague is a reflection of the so called French "New Wave" cinema and how the Cahiers, one of the most influential film magazines of any language, has helped to shape modern cinema in some way. It reflects the age-old conflict between movie studios and independent filmmakers, where content and substance are judged against big name stars and pay checks.The four directors specifically mentioned in this paper are among the most influential as they were with the magazine early on and made movies in the late 1950s to the early 1970s, the height of the "New Wave." Truffaut has always captured themes of childhood and innocence, Godard has political themes (while claiming to be `unpolitical"), Resnais made documentaries films based on literature, and Rohmer demonstrated provincial life and morals.
