European Film Noir
Originaltitel: European Film Noir, 2007
Manchester University Press
European Film Noir is the first book to bring together specialist discussions of film noir in specific European national cinemas. Written by leading scholars, this groundbreaking study provides an authoritative understanding of an important aspect of European cinema and of film noir itself, for too long considered as a solely American form.
Nine chapters detail the development of film noir and neo-noir in French, British, German, Spanish and Italian cinema, each providing a rigerous critical overview that discusses the most significant films and examines them in relation to their variable contexts of production, distribution and reception, and to social change.
Einführung von Andrew Spicer. Jedes Kapitel verfügt über Biblio- und Filmographie.
