University professor emeritus and film critic, Jean Serroy takes the reader through the history of cinema which, in 120 years of existence, has never stopped reinventing itself, going from silent to talkies in the early 1930s, from black and white to color, from small format square screens to the spectacular dimensions of ever larger screens, from film and cellulose nitrate to 4D.

This book thus proposes to return to the 1,000 cult films that have marked our era and which, each, have punctuated the life of generations of yesterday and today. Hundreds of films from all genres and all countries are presented, decade by decade, according to a selection based on objective data such as the annual admissions rankings, in France and abroad, the major festivals such as Cannes and Venice but also on major celebrations such as the Oscars and the Césars or even on the notoriety consecrated by critics. So many criteria that have allowed cinema to establish itself as a new, unique and irreplaceable art.
