The unification of Germany in late 1990 marked the end of two distinct German film cultures. This supplemental volume to the authors' acclaimed 1987 work provides data on all West German films made between 1986 and January 1. 1991. Like its predecessor, the book is intended for students, teachers, journalists, and cinema professionals who need pertinent information about any West German film of the late 1980s. Along with more than 1,000 alphabetically listed West German movies, the book includes information on directors, actors and actresses, producers, camerapersons, music composers, and a cross-reference listing of English titles of all films contained in the filmography. The introductory section features an in-depth interview with one of Germany's leading film critics, Hans GDunther Pflaum of Munich's Suddeutsche Zeitung who offers comment and insight into the directions West German cinema has taken during its final years as well as the developments that will shape the newly reunified German film industry n the next decade.
