Description:The first study in English to examine key themes and traditions of Czech and Slovak cinema. Linking interwar and postwar cinemas together with developments during the post-Communist period, the volume considers interactions among theme, genre, and visual style and the way in which a range of styles and traditions has extended across different historical periods and political regimes. Czech and Slovak cinema are a unique avenue into Central European film history.
