The complete inverse of Film Noir. Films Blanc are fantasies, whimsical visions of life that deal with the great beyond, the afterlife, heaven and hell. They are usually romances or light morality plays, sometimes satirical, often sentimental. This is essentially the "heavenly waiting room" movie, the kind of fantasy that proposes a fantastic continuity between life and death. Film Blanc had its classic period in the 1940s and 1950s.
The first 43 are the films from the "classic" film blanc period. The films following are from the "neo-blanc" era.
