New edited volume from Edinburgh University Press:


European Film Remakes


Edited by Eduard Cuelenaere (Ghent University), Gertjan Willems (University of Antwerp/Ghent University) & Stijn Joye (Ghent University)

Although commonly understood as a typical Hollywood practice, ‘European Film Remakes’ demonstrates how film remakes are, and always have been, a significant part of the European film culture and industry:

* Combines historical and contemporary approaches to film remakes in Europe

* Investigates, next to the textual, socio-cultural and political dimensions, the often neglected industrial, financial and production-related dynamics of European remake practices

* Provides a mix of different methodologies, ranging from comparative textual analysis to production, promotion, and reception analysis

* Takes into account both popular and art cinema remakes

* Examines European film remakes within local, regional, national, transnational or transcultural contexts

* Offers new theoretical concepts and methodological models that take into account both the distinctive and universal aspects of film remaking in a European context

* Illustrated by a wide range of case studies from across Europe, including films like A Bigger Splash, Open Your Eyes and Perfect Strangers
