Un an avant le début de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, le hasard réunit à Cambridge, le temps d'une année universitaire, quatre étudiants, trois Britanniques et un Français. Un cinquième, français aussi, assez distant au début, deviendra leur historiographe, le témoin et le confident de leurs vies chaotiques dans les pires épisodes de la guerre froide. Le roman tient son titre d'une vision poétique, bref répit dans le Londres pilonné par les Allemands. La mort y frappe à l'aveuglette et le Français, Georges Saval, s'évade pour une fin de semaine dans une auberge de la New Forest en compagnie d'une jeune femme dont le destin est déjà scellé. Ouvrant la fenêtre un matin, ils voient des poneys à longue crinière s'égailler en lisière de forêt, dernière vision d'un monde qui ne connaîtra jamais la paix. Les poneys sauvages est un livre aux multiples facettes où le romanesque rencontre l'Histoire sans pitié. Pour ses quelques révélations sur le massacre de Katyn et la guerre d'Algérie, le livre fut violemment attaqué à sa parution. Le jury du prix Interallié couronna le roman en 1970. Trois ans après, Un taxi mauve reçut le Grand Prix du roman de l'Académie française, où Michel Déon fut élu en 1978.

Cinema has been long associated with France, dating back to 1895, when Louis and Auguste Lumi_re screened their works, the first public viewing of films anywhere. Early silent pioneers Georges MZli_s, Alice Guy BlachZ and others followed in the footsteps of the Lumi_re brothers and the tradition of important filmmaking continued throughout the 20th century and beyond. In Encyclopedia of French Film Directors, Philippe Rège identifies every French director who has made at least one feature film since 1895. From undisputed masters to obscure one-timers, nearly 3,000 directors are cited here, including at least 200 filmmakers not mentioned in similar books published in France. Each director's entry contains a brief biographical summary, including dates and places of birth and death; information on the individual's education and professional training; and other pertinent details, such as real names (when the filmmaker uses a pseudonym). The entries also provide complete filmographies, including credits for feature films, shorts, documentaries, and television work. Some of the most important names in the history of film can be found in this encyclopedia, from masters of the Golden Age_Jean Renoir and RenZ Clair_to French New Wave artists such as Fran_ois Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard.
