Gavronsky, Serge Silver_nugget
France on Film

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Prof. Gavronsky is one of the most entertaining and intellectual men I have ever come across. His class is fairly easy with only 2 7-8 pg term papers, one due in Oct and the other due in Dec, and one final which had a take home 4 pg part and in class questions on the films we watched in class. Reasonably low amount of work. He likes class participation. Beware however that the film class is on tuesday from 7-8:30, but most of the films lasted much longer than that, and then there is an hour on Wed of discussion. I highly recommend his class, not too difficult and he is extremely talented and the films we watch range from 1930s depictions of Vichy France to recent films such as Taxi II, a french attempt at Matrix-esque action scenes. Great class

Workload:

Two 7-9 pg papers, final which has a take home part and in class short answer part. Not heavy, just dont leave the papers until the last minute b/c the last one is due during finals!
