Description

In the history of German cinema, film directors have developed unique visual and narrative responses to the anxieties and excesses of their own times and those of Germany's past. German Cinema is the first English-language volume to provide a comprehensive historical overview of German film from the silent era to the present, as well as close readings of individual films.
