A study of the reception in Great Britain of the post-war German cinema, seen here as part of the wider issue of foreign-language film distribution and exhibition in the UK. An analysis of the relevant structural conditions of the industry as well as public attitudes toward non-English-language cinema is followed by a detailed reconstruction of the way films from both West and East Germany have been made available to British audiences, including an assessment of how they have been promoted both commercially and culturally. The final chapter ascertains to what extent the critical response to contemporary German features is a reflection of the general British perception of the films' country of origin. An appendix presents a list of 800 feature films, with details of their screenings on British television and in the cinema over five decades, as well as a bibliography including details of many film reviews, mainly from newspapers and specialist publications.
