A study of 28 films by the major postwar German director, Volker Schlondorff, examining them in historical, economic and artistic contexts. The authors seek to reveal a complexity and formal ambitiousness of Schlondorff that is comparable to that found in Wenders, Herzog and Fassbinder. The work demonstrates how Schlondorff: combines commercial interest with significant artistic ambition; blends the kinaesthetic pleasures of moving images with the seriousness of fine literature; links the intensity of individualized personal experience to an awareness of broader political issues; and represents a specifically German sensibility even as he reaches out to international audiences.
