About this book

What can film tell us about enjoyment and sexual difference? Can cinematic fiction be more Real than reality? Fabio Vighi looks at Jacques Lacan's theory of sexuality alongside some of the best-known works of European cinema, including films by Fellini, Truffaut, Antonioni and Bergman.

About the authors

FABIO VIGHI teaches Italian and European Cinema at Cardiff University, UK. He is author of Le ragioni dell'altro: la formazione intellettuale di Pier Paolo Pasolini (2001), Traumatic Encounters in Italian Film (2005), Žižek Beyond Foucault (2007, with Heiko Feldner) and Did Somebody Say Ideology? On Slavoj Žižek and Consequences (2007, edited with Heiko Feldner).

Reviews

'Fabio Vighi has not simply redefined European cinema but has opened up an entire field of study. This book begins to fill the immense lacuna within contemporary film studies surrounding recent developments in Lacanian theory. The interpretations that he provides offer a radical rethinking of Rohmer, Fellini, Antonioni, Bergman, and many other important directors. After Sexual Difference in European Cinema , what's at stake in the work of these directors becomes truly apparent for the first time.' - Todd McGowan, University of Vermont, USA
