Le "nouveau cinéma allemand" en France : histoire d'un label (1945-1984)

Abstract : The object of this study is what we usually call, in France, the "new german cinema". It's precisely this "usual" nature of this which motivated our questioning about this object. When we ear about the terminology of "new german cinema", we spontaneously think about some filmmakers, some actors, a historic period, some thematics. Why ? How could it have come to this ? Of what "new german cinema" is the name, in France ? Our study proposes to observe the return of German productions after the Second World War, and their development, specially by the diffusion of movies categorized as "young" or "new german cinema". The aim of this study, stretched from 1945 to 1984, is to observe the conditions of "new german cinema" appearance and development in the french territory, from the systematic identification of German-speaking productions and coproductions which circulated on the french cinema market. Thanks to this restitution and observation, thanks to movies thematics analyses, and critic and journalistic views analyses, we will see how the "new german cinema" movies were tested, estimated and promoted. The aim is to understand what movies are able to produce on spectators, when the humans et the movies get in interaction by the showing. Because the quality of the movies, and of the authors, exists, we want to understand what this quality means, refers, et specially how she is tested : how we do to test a movie ? What are the practical and symbolical modalities of the German movies quality ? Why people go to the theater to see a German movie ? What motivated professional critics to publicly express, justify, their love - or hate - of a movie, of a movies group, ou an author ?
