From the Back Cover
This is a two book series. The first text, in English, covers thirty-one German films. This second text covers fourteen of the same films with emphasis on German language skills. Thus, one or both can be used for courses in German film in English, courses in German film in German, or courses which for various reasons might cater to students taking either track simultaneously in the same course. The series is designed to appeal to professors who teach courses in general education, liberal arts, cinema, or who conduct a course in German film exclusively in German, or for where students share the same class (and films) for those two different courses.
