POLL 77: WEST GERMAN FILMS IN THE 1970'S

POLL 77: WEST GERMAN FILMS IN THE 1970'S

My poll 77 is inspired by the death of Werner Schroeter, who made THE DEATH OF MARIA MALIBRAN (1972), which is one of my most favorite films of all time. I wrote a comment on this film here:

I love many German films made during the 1970's and early 1980's, but I'm not sure if some of them belong to the New German Cinema or not. I think that Werner Herzog, Danièle Huillet, Alexander Kluge, Helma Sanders-Brahms, Volker Schlöndorff, Werner Schroeter, Jean-Marie Straub, Hans-Jürgen Syberberg, Margarethe von Trotta, and Wim Wenders belong to the New German Cinema, because some books about the New German Cinema talk about these directors. But I'm not sure if Harun Farocki, Thomas Brasch, and Peter Stein belong to this group or not. Since I'm not sure about the definition of the New German Cinema, I decided not to make a poll about the New German Cinema. I decided to make a poll about West German films during the 1970's instead, because it is much easier for me to decide if any films belong to this country and this period or not. This poll also includes some films which may not belong to the New German Cinema, such as the film of Wolfgang Staudte.

I WORSHIP THESE WEST GERMAN FILMS WHICH WERE MADE DURING THE 1970'S. WHICH ONES DO YOU LIKE?

1.THE ALL-ROUND REDUCED PERSONALITY: REDUPERS (1978, Helke Sander)

2.DAS ANDECHSER GEFÜHL (1974, Herbert Achternbusch)

3.BREMEN FREEDOM (1972, Rainer Werner Fassbinder)

4.CALM PREVAILS OVER THE COUNTRY (1976, Peter Lilienthal)

5.THE DEATH OF MARIA MALIBRAN (1972, Werner Schroeter)

6.HITLER: A FILM FROM GERMANY (1977, Hans-Jürgen Syberberg)

7.KINGS OF THE ROAD (1976, Wim Wenders)

8.LAND OF SILENCE AND DARKNESS (1971, Werner Herzog)

9.THE LEFT-HANDED WOMAN (1977, Peter Handke)
