“…In France, cinema is widely referred to as “the seventh art”, along with architecture, sculpture, painting, dance, music and poetry. “Seventh art” is not a phrase one hears often in Britain,* or America** for that matter. But, in France, they view cinema as a form of artistic expression, worthy of study and discussion…” Here.

*You should keep in mind that today’s Britain, excluding a few niches,  is a cultural wasteland.

**You should keep in mind that America today, excluding a few niches,  is a vast cultural wasteland, as it has been in the past (except for a niche here and there) and as it will no doubt be in the future (except possibly for a surviving niche here and there).
