The Thirty-Six Dramatic Situations

Mike Figgis Price: $24.95

"All drama takes the form of one of 36 situations"

That was Georges Poltiís theory about theatre, which he put forward in his book 36 Dramatic Situations, published in French in the mid-19th century

A century and a half later, Mike Figgis was struggling with a film treatment

He just couldnít get it right

But when he turned to Poltiís book, the sample situations helped clarify his ideas and broaden the landscape of his creativity

He saw just how useful this sort of a framework could be for writers

And so he decided to rework Poltiís theory particularly for a modern, film-focused audience.

Combining re-imagined situations with cinematic examples, and chart-based analysis of 150 great films, the resulting book is an invaluable and stimulating tool for any writer
