Volker Schlö ndorff’ s Cinema: Adaptation, Politics, and the “ Movie-Appropriate”  is the first comprehensive treatment in English of a major postwar German filmmaker. The volume gains authority from the expansive knowledge it introduces about Schlö ndorff’ s works and from the secondary literature it draws on to evaluate them. It also succeeds in framing the individual films in historical contexts and (inter)national cinematic traditions.” — Marc Silberman, University of Wisconsin– Madison
