Abstract

Cet essai propose une réflexion sur la nécessité d'une ré-orientation des structures de comparaison pour le cinéma irlandais qui est à la croisée des chemins au même titre que d'autres industries cinématographiques nationales. La comparaison avec le cinéma scandinave exploré dans sa diversité se révèle riche en enseignements. La discussion porte aussi sur la production cinématographique et sur l'histoire cinématographique en gaélique irlandais ainsi que sur la différence entre les notions de cinéma européen et " cinéma d'art ". /// This essay argues for a re-shifting of comparative frameworks for Irish cinema, which stands at a crossroads along with other small national cinemas. The cinemas of Scandinavia are offered as a particularly fruitful point of comparison, and there is also some discussion of filmmaking and film history in Irish Gaelic, and a consideration of the difference between notions of European cinema and "Art Cinema."
