Sites dedicated to the CINEMA :

- first thing first,

The cinema, westerns, film noir, thrillers and co database

the movie database for the moviebuff : more than 7300 films you can sort and use OFFLINE on YOUR computer...

 

 

- and also this other film database, dedicated to my favorite genre :

 

 

- Internet Movie Database: the famous IMDB, at least 140 000 films ; but you can't download the database nor use it and adapt it to your taste as you can with... "FILMNOIR" or "CINEFAN"!!!
-
All Movie Guide: about as many films as in IMDB, but you can't downlaod the database and adapt it to your taste, make it yours, on your own PC, like with... but I seem to repeat myself !!!
-
American Movie Classic
- The Movies on line, interesting ressources for the amateur.
- Annuaire cinéma
, an interesting and useful directory in french.
- CaHieR Du FiLMoGRaPHe, a personal site dedicated to filmographies.

 

Finally, in order to change completely the atmosphere, let's give a little push to the site I dedicated to my touristical guidebooks to Greece (in French) :
