France's Newest Oscar-Winning Director Slams French Film Industry
"[Michel] Hazanavicius, who won the best picture and director Oscar for his silent comedy The Artist
in 2012, took to the pages of Le Monde
to lambast what he sees as a well-meaning but outmoded system of French film production. 'Today our responsibility is to denounce the failings of a once virtuous system that is being devoured by gangrene'."
