European cinema not only occupies a dominant place in film history, it is also a field that has been raising more interest with the expanding work on the transnational. Euro-Visions asks what idea of Europe emerges, is represented and constructed by contemporary European film. Adopting a broad and wide-ranging approach, Euro-Visions mixes political sources, historical documents and filmic texts and offers an integration of policy and economic contexts with textual analysis. Mariana Liz examines costume dramas, biopics and war films, mainstream co-productions and tales of `Fortress Europe' by renowned auteurs, showing how films from different European nations depict and contribute to the formation of the idea of Europe. Case studies include Girl with a Pearl Earring, La Vie en Rose, Black Book, Good Bye Lenin!, Match Point and The Silence of Lorna.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Euro-Visions constitutes an important overview of the EU's engagement in the transnational distribution of European film since its formation. It is especially useful for readers wanting to explore the role of European policy-making in the constitution of a transnational idea of Europe. * Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television *
Euro-visions is undoubtedly a timely addition to the literature on European cinema, addressing many of the key issues on contemporary European film, identity and policy. * Studies in European Cinema *
The ongoing importance of Liz's topic remains guaranteed ... [An] economical, often insightful work. * EuropeNow *
Mariana Liz's Euro-Visions undertakes the ambitious but necessary task of offering readers a multifaceted analysis of the evolution of the European Union, its political, economic, and cultural policies in which MEDIA (Measures to Encourage the Development of the Audio-Visual Industry) plays a significant, if also, a contentious role. * Marcia Landy, Distinguished Professor Emerita of English/Film Studies, French and Italian Languages and Literatures Department, the University of Pittsburgh, USA *
In Euro-Visions, the many strands of European cinema come together - concepts and narratives, genres and styles, industry matters and economic concerns. Building on the dialectical interplay of the itinerant and the stagnant, Mariana Liz guides the reader on a filmic journey against the diverse backdrop of Europe's ideological and representational complexity. * Dina Iordanova, Professor of Global Cinema and Creative Cultures, University of St Andrews, UK *
