    Indeed, something that pains me is that in the past couple of decades, the US public has become less and less knowledgeable about French cinema, at least in my experience. Also there is a retreat in knowledge of the French language, but that is another story. Distribution has something to do with the French film problem and with the foreign film problem in general.
