The smoke-less screen

2008 has got off to a smoke-free start in France. The smoking ban in the country has taken effect today as authorities look to curb the widespread habit among the French (a quarter of the population puffs). We're all for health, of course, but does the ban mean that French cinema has lost one of its most iconic props? The films coming out in 2009 and set in contemporary France will probably give us a clue.
