This is by far the best book available on films about the middle ages, nothing else like it exists. It's an encyclopedia of 564 films in all languages. The author doesn't rate or rank the films, but provides enough clues to give the careful reader guidance on which are the better and more important films (length of entry, accompanying picture, etc.). Some of these films are extremely obscure and I have no idea how one would go about viewing them. Each film entry has a bibliography for further information and reviews. There is also an Introduction and bibliography. It's good to see a paperback version is now available although it is still costly. For lovers of the middle ages and film this will open new worlds.
