"Michel Chion is the leading French cinema scholar to study the sound track. . . . I know of no writer in any language to have published as much in this area, and of such uniformly high quality, as he. Audio-Vision is most certainly an original and significant contribution to the field; its arguments will rapidly become standard reference points." --Alan Williams, Rutgers University
