The timing of European Cinema after the Wall could hardly be better. . . .East European Cinema after the Wall is a fine collection with a good selection of compelling essays. . . .I believe that [this book] . . . makes for a worthy addition to any film scholar’s library.
— Slavic and East European Journal
This is an interesting and informative volume which provides a wide overview of European cinema’s response to a major issue in large parts of the continent.
— Journal of Contemporary European Studies
This collection of ten original, well-argued essays features contributions by scholars from a variety of disciplinary perspectives — film and media studies, comparative literature, Slavic and Russian studies, sociology, and contemporary history — that will be of great interest to international readers of this journal and, for that matter, to anyone concerned with developments in Europe since the fall of the Berlin Wall. . . . The reader emerges from these richly detailed explorations with a sense that the dynamic national film industries represented here have undergone varying and even contradictory trajectories with regard to their acceptance or rejection of — or indeed indifference toward — the aftermath of the migrations that have taken place in the postsocialist era.
