"Imposing in its impeccable scholarship and impressive in its literate accessibility, this is a magisterial who's who of German cinema - a superb resource and students and cineastes alike will find much excellent and accurate information on such key names as Fritz Lang, GW Pabst, Ernst Lubitsch, FW Murnau, Leni Riefenstahl, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Werner Herzog, Wim Wenders, Michael Haneke and Fatih Akin. It's also an irresistible browse that soon has one wishing that more German cinema was available on DVD in this country." * Oxford Times "It's a godsend that they have brought out this wonderful document...Hardcore information of this sort is incredibly important for the film historian and film students and sometimes even the film-maker, and it is gaining in value as the practitioners of 20th-century cinema disappear." * Kevin Brownlow, film historian, author, and filmmakerReseña del editor:
This comprehensive guide is an ideal reference work for film specialists and enthusiasts. First published in 1984 but continuously updated ever since, CineGraph is the most authoritative and comprehensive encyclopedia on German-speaking cinema in the German language. This condensed and substantially revised English-language edition makes this important resource available to students and researchers for the first time outside its German context. It offers a representative historical overview through bio-filmographical entries on the main protagonists, from the beginnings to the present day. Included are directors and actors, writers and cameramen, composers and production designers, film theorists and critics, producers and distributors, inventors and manufacturers. An appendix includes short introductory essays on specific periods and movements, such as Early Film, Weimar, Nazi Cinema, DEFA, New German Cinema, and German film since unification, as well as on cinematic developments in Austria and Switzerland. Sections that crossreference names around specific professional groups and themes will prove equally invaluable to researchers.
