Popular European Cinema examines the reasons why films that are most popular with audiences in any one European countha are seldom successful eslewhere. Audiences themselves represent diverse class, gender and ethnic identities that complicate th equestoin of national cinema, not least with recent developments in formerly communist Eastern Europe and post-colonialist Western Europe. THrough their individual studies, the contribuitots ehr oven up a new area of study, using the medium of film to fucus a wider discussion of popular European culture.
