Editorial Reviews


“Sabine Hake explores why filmmakers in various settings were, and continue to be, able to appeal to powerful emotions when screening the fascist past.”—Lutz Koepnick, author of The Dark Mirror: German Cinema between Hitler and Hollywood

“Hake’s innovative transnational approach and theoretical sophistication are accompanied by fine detailed analysis of specific films. She engages in dialogue with some of the newest and most interesting work in the theory of cinema.”—Siobhan S. Craig, author of Cinema after Fascism: The Shattered Screen

About the Author

Sabine Hake is the Texas Chair of German Literature and Culture at the University of Texas at Austin. She is the author of numerous books and anthologies on German cinema and culture, including Topographies of Class: Modern Architecture and Mass Society in Weimar Berlin.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book begins with an interesting premise: How have Nazis been portrayed in film in different era? Hake looks at Hollywood during WWII, West German film in the Fifties, East German film in the Sixties, Italian film in the Seventies and so on.

The result is a rather uneven book. Some chapters, such as the one on the Fifties, are excellent. (Perhaps this is because these chapters cover films that are rather unfamiliar to English speaking readers.) Some chapters are only okay.

The biggest drawback to the book is the lack of an overall conclusion that pulls the ideas in the different chapters together. Instead, we have Hake's mostly negative response to "Downfall" and then the book is over. It is rather an anti-climax.
