The remake is a prominent feature of contemporary Hollywood production, a high proportion of which originate in French films. Encore Hollywood considers the effect of the remake on the construction of a national cultural identity. Lucy Mazdon examines key remakes of French films in Hollywood over the past 20 years, highlighting the increased importance of culture in political discourse of the 1980s as a fundamental reason for the negative reception of remakes in France.
